To consider Drug Policy Reform
Hemp: Kansas Farmers & agri-business investors deserve legislative support for economic development.
Medicinal Marijuana: Cityizens of the state of Kansas with medical necessities, deserve legal access to the properties of this unfairly prohibited healing plant.
Resolution: The elimination of the "black market" through de-criminalization, advancing a free market system governed by regulation and taxation.

What's Crazier: Legalizing drugs, or a war on drugs that spends billions of dollars a year in such specious activities as destroying crops in foreign fields and locking up casual users for years in prison?
Sonte-cold sober consideration show that the nation's drug war is wacked out on slogans, hyper-expensive but mostly useless technology and excessive punishment that does more harm than good.
Marijuana isn't right or wrong. My goodness, it's just a plant. It is a God-given resource for living. It was put here on earth to use just like all other plants. Genesis 1:29 speaks thusly of hempcannabis/marijuana and other plants: "Behold I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every three with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food."
As a nation we continue wasting tens of billions of dollars every year for a drug policy that simply doesn't work; a drug policy that puts our children at greater risk than no policy at all. We now commit more tax dollars on the drug war than educating our youth. After a 30 year long civil war against 70 million marijuana users and their families, over 13 million arrests for marijuana crimes, an eightfold increase in prison inmates, after the expenditure of a trillion dollars on marijuana prohibition, what do we have to show from the labor of our hard-earned tax money?
What kind of fools are we to continue to tolerate government stupidity of htis magnitude?
