For decades federal law has prohibited the production, sale and possession of marijuana and the United States has  international treaties that requires it to keep marijuana illegal.  Yet despite marijuana’s long-settled status under federal law, Hawaii State legislatures have embarked in a quasi- legalization program even setting up a complex regulatory regime to promote its distribution and use.

 

The U.S. Constitution makes federal law “the supreme law of the land,” giving the federal government the power to continue to enforce federal drug laws even when a state’s laws say something to the contrary.

But in 2009, the Obama Administration announced that it would not enforce the federal marijuana laws in states that purported to legalize the drug.

A multi-billion dollar commercial marijuana industry sprung up almost overnight.   After nine years of federal non-enforcement, the inevitable result has been easy youth access to marijuana, the deterioration of neighborhoods where the marijuana industry openly operates, and the rise of the drug culture everywhere.

 

Quasi-legalization under the Medical Marijuana Act and legalizing recreational marijuana use involves a host of problems which the State Legislature cannot deal with such as:

  • Landlords of commercial facilities will face undesirable traffic and degeneration of property values and tenant income from the presence of marijuana distribution points.
  • Agricultural land owners adjacent to marijuana growing facilities will be forced to live next to a facility requiring armed guards and 24 hour surveillance.
  • Despite the legislatures efforts to eliminate liability or discrimination in employment involving a medical marijuana card holder and soon recreational drug users, it is unlikely and dangerous for many local and national corporations to change their zero tolerance policy towards drugs use putting both local business and potential employees at a further disadvantage.
  • US states where drug use is legalized are become “Drug Cartels” feeding illegal drugs to the other states around them mirroring the same corruption and criminalization process seen in Central and South America.
  • Marijuana use is not equivalent to alcohol use.  Alcohol can and should be used in moderation but the only reason to take psychoactive drugs is to attain full drug intoxication.
  • Recreational Marijuana use with its potential physical and physiologically degenerative impacts is not compatible with a fast paced productive civilization.  Recreational drug use will only suppress the skill level, drive and expertise needed to sustain a technologically advanced civilization such as our own.  Promoting legal drug use imperials the prosperity and stability of this and future generations.

 

History has shown the societal decay caused by commercializing drug use is a fools choice compared to the cost of suppressing and discouraging the use of drugs.  The hideous process of a Drug Cartel Industry springing up in our midst, seeking to bring each new generation into its “customer base” should be enough to discern the true nature of what is at stake. 

 

 

Stop Big Marijuana Hawaii

The use of Marijuana as a natural substance to help the sick and infirm is an issue separate from its recreational drug use. Nor should the suppression of recreational marijuana impeded research and development the industrial/chemical uses found in hemp/marijuana. Marijuana use has been shown to impeded intellect, ambition and social/mental stability. Marijuana as a social vice needs to be handled in ways far short of the present trend towards full legalization and commercialization.
