Encouraging progress against AIDS in Africa. Antivirals and education used together can achieve amazing things.
It’s nice to see that criminal priests are broadening their horizons. Give them a few years and they’ll be trafficking in illegal guns (assuming they aren’t already!).
Hmm, this sounds kinda fun. I wonder if someone’s already set up something like this in Seattle.
Well, now! Maybe after a couple of years the police will be able to focus even more of their time on violent crime instead of victimless pot possession cases.
Yay! Now they just need to lift the ban on certain fungal fruitbodies.
This is truly sick. How much time and money are we wasting on crap like this? This undercover cop actually led some poor kid to fall in love with her, eventually asking him to buy her some weed. Now he’s got a record for a pointless, victimless crime that he was essentially seduced into committing. This is what America’s “war on drugs” has led to, folks: wasted money and jails crowded with nonviolent offenders while freely-sold alcohol continues to kill millions.
More fun from the self-loathing society: This American Life had a show about how young female undercover cops infiltrated a high school and flirted with boys to entrap them into selling pot, so they could charge them with felonies and destroy their lives at an early age.
