You should watch the Penn & Teller episode because it is VERY well done and is very to the point. Penn, btw, is completely straight edge. The biggest drug abuses and the causes of most drug deaths in the US are alcohol and tobacco. When alcohol was prohibited it created the crime families. Criminalization of drugs creates a black market. They had to revoke it because of the massive problems. In Netherlands, drugs are decriminalized. Pretty nice country. You have a point about the big pharms and cotton industry. In Netherlands they have multi million dollar growers. I just know that Hemp is a superior material and for the same price I can get better hemp products than cotton products of comparable quality.
