DENMARK: ‘ CITY COURT JAILS SEVEN DRUG DISTRIBUTORS WITH A STASH OF 1.9 TONNES OF CANNABIS ‘

#AceWorldNews – DENMARK:Jan.06:Seven Danes were jailed for terms from two-and-half to seven years by Copenhagen City Court on Tuesday. A total of 76 people were on trial for drug distribution, Reuters reported.

The men stored a stash of 1.9 tonnes of hashish, prepared for sale in Copenhagen’s old hippy commune Freetown Christiana.

A term of seven years behind bars was given to a 45-year-old alleged kingpin; he appealed that decision with two others.

According to the prices presented by the Danish Health and Medicines Authority, 1.9 tonnes of cannabis are worth 124 million crowns ($19.8 million).

#AceGuestViews : “Obama I don’t think `Marijuana’ Is More `Dangerous’ than Alcohol”

#AceGuestPost and his “News and Views” on the subject of “Obama and Marijuana” 

In a profile published on The New Yorker’s website, the President admits he smoked marijuana when he was younger and is pretty sure many other politicians did, too, but that some demographics are more harshly punished for the offence. He says if it is legalized, it could lead to a slippery slope, with supporters possibly wanting to legalize recreational use other drugs, such as meth or cocaine.
President Obama (Who is to meet the Pope in March this year) thinks marijuana is no more dangerous than booze — and even less harmful “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

“As has been well-documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life. I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol,” Obama said to New Yorker editor David Remnick in a lengthy profile published Sunday

President Obama thinks marijuana is no more dangerous than booze — and even less harmful “in terms of its impact on the individual consumer.”

“Middle-class kids don’t get locked up for smoking pot and poor kids do,” he told Remnick. “And African-American kids and Latino kids are more likely to be poor, and less likely to have the resources and the support to avoid unduly harsh penalties.”

I have always wondered why Alcohol is sociably acceptable while Hash/Cannabis/Marijuana is not. I have NEVER seen or heard of someone do ANY bad stoned. But I can tell 1oo stories of drunk people doing wrong, even dying. The world is BACKWARDS on this issue, for me it’s as clear as day. LEGALIZE the Herb, CRIMINALIZE Alcohol!
