"Now that people can open up," he said, "I realize this is a product that someone's parents use, someone's friend uses. People that are professional and that have families and that they all view it as an acceptable, better than acceptable, as a better alternative than other options: That was an eye opener."

You mendacious fark. You knew all of this perfectly well while you were an agent but you didn't care. You were being paid six figures to be a government goon.

To build your whole career around fighting drugs only to do a 180 once the penalties are reduced.

How do they not feel like a huge hipocritical douche?

sleeper2995: Reporter: Excuse me Mr. Ness but what are you gonna do now that Prohibition is over?

Mr. Ness: I think I'll have a drink!

I expect nothing less from law enforcement than hypocrisy


That's why they want to be known as "law enforcement officers".  That's why no one should trust the police: they don't give a shiat about how just a law is, they're just there to enforce it.

"Protect and serve" my left foot.

I wouldn't hire him. I'd tell him "You prevented this kind of business for years and now you want a job in it? Sorry, I don't have any openings for floor sweepers."

Yeah that is my thought exactly.

"Ya know I thought turning on the Zyklon B was wrong, but everyone was doing it and I got paid well."

Fark em, we should be having trials.

Eh, they may be doing it for the money, or may have had an actual change of heart, I don't really care as long as they get to the right side.  Law enforcement (and ex-law enforcement) officers endorsing the pro-legalization stance lends credibility to it in the eyes of the undecided, and winning those people over will be necessary for legalization to spread.

For me pragmatism outweighs any desire of ideological purity.


And for me, I think they should all EABOD.  Since all the people they busted lost everything, I think these guys can get the very same.  Vindictive?  Yea.  So sue me.

I'll make sure and out anyone I discover coming from the prohibitionists into the business, and I'll do everything in my power to run 'em out of town...on a rail...time for shaming of the real criminals.

No Shiat!  Those DUI checkpoints can cause your last drink to cost you $10 grand, rot your liver and beat your wife for you, better to beat up a bag of cheetos and a video game!
