It has been said that Carl Sagan did most of his writing while under the influence of marijuana.
(O.K. He was stoned out of his gourd!)
That’s why he sounded so unusual when he uttered “billions and billions and billions…”
If Bill Clinton had inhaled, there might have been fewer bombs falling on Bosnia.
If George W. Bush had snorted less cocaine and smoked more pot we might not be going bankrupt right now both morally and fiscally.
But who will ever know?
New Mexico now allows medical marijuana to be inhaled.
As so many have said so many times (most recently Bill Maher), marijuana has never killed anyone.
This is an exaggeration and probably false, but compared to alcohol and cigarettes, the lethality of marijuana is minimal.
We all know that the drug companies have abetted and assisted (i.e. paid) the FDA in order for these pharmaceutical giants to receive quick approval for their plethora of drugs so that they can make their billions and billions.
To legalize Mary Jane or heroin would compete with these hefty profits.
Drug lords and drug cartels would go out of business.
(But legalization could save the U.S. government billions in its so-called WAR ON DRUGS.)
The pharmaceutical serpent has always been eating its alchemical tail.
The American people have always swallowed the pill that the legalization of marijuana would be dangerous.
But the biggest dangers come from the crimes committed to obtain and sell the high-priced street drugs.
The Taliban are now funded by illegal drugs.
The poppies are their friends.
Making all drugs legal would endanger the huge profits currently made by drug companies and drug cartels.
The big business of asset seizures by law enforcement agencies would also disappear.
Legalizing drugs would create a safer world. Legalization of drugs would help us to win the war against terrorists.
The beautiful marijuana plant is still an evil weed because it threatens the Evil enterprise of DRUG LORDS and PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES.
Pity Mary Jane and feel her pain.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The late astronomer and author, Carl Sagan was a secret but avid marijuana smoker, crediting it with inspiring essays and scientific insight, according to Sagan's biographer.

"I find that today a single joint is enough to get me high ... in one movie theater recently I found I could get high just by inhaling the cannabis smoke which permeated the theater,'' wrote Sagan, who authored popular science books such as "Cosmos,'' "Contact,'' and "The Dragons of Eden.''

In the essay, Sagan said marijuana inspired some of his intellectual work.

"I can remember one occasion, taking a shower with my wife while high, in which I had an idea on the origins and invalidities of racism in terms of gaussian distribution curves,'' wrote the former Cornell University professor. "I wrote the curves in soap on the shower wall, and went to write the idea down.

Ann Druyan, Sagan's former wife, is a director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. The nonprofit group promotes legalization of marijuana.
