Is your nation tired, apathetic, or otherwise constantly lithargic?
Do you ever feel the need to just wake it up out its daze from all of the “purple haze?”
Do you desire to rid your nation of the pandemic that is cannabis abuse?
Well here’s how, in just a few easy steps:
•Make it legal
Substances are much less attractive (especially to minors) when the taboo is lifted
•Undercut the black market and sell it at a competitive price
The heart of drug use lies underground — cut it out with cut-throat capitalism.
•Infiltrate all marijuana crops on the street with GMO’s
Anywhere a patented gene goes, the company that owns that patent is required due royalties from the farmer/grower. And that means anyone caught growing marijuana won’t have to worry about drug charges, but they will have to answer to corporate lawyers, if not also the IRS.
For this to be successful, such genetically modified plants must bear a visible marker in order for officials to quickly identify them.
In addition, as incentive for this, these GMO’s can be modified to produce more THC, for a greater, more sustained high, thus making it more attractive to black market entrepreneurs.
Moreover, to supplement this approach, it would be within the medical marijuana industry’s best interests to lobby congress to pass legislation making all non-gmo forms of cannabis illegal.
•We need to identify a chemical or two that, alone is/are completely harmless, while when combined with THC makes one completely nauseated
If such chemical(s) is/are discovered, it/they need(s) to be as ubiquitous as corn syrup; completely infiltrating the food supply, and agricultural infrastructure.
Moreover, any FDA data comfirming its effects when combined with marijuana need to be completely dismissed, or otherwise down-played beyond public concern.
•Tax the hell out of it
Once you have completed all of the previous steps, in a few years, once all has been accepted into the equillibrium, begin making it cost prohibitive by enforcing a minor tax, as is enforced with tabacco products — every few years increasing the tax just a little more.
