Don't know why but it to me came across that you were insinuating that everybody is a thousand years behind America. An opinion I can't stand.
Err you and I live in the UK and I'm afraid we are a thousand years behind America. If you don't recognise that we're decades away from cannabis ceasing to become a criminal offence, or members of ethnic minorities becoming PM, then you should reconsider. There's a myth in the UK that 'duh the US is so stoopid' but they think arresting people for making jokes on Twitter is stupid, and they put rapists and murderers in jail for the rest of their lives, and they're moving away from the prohibition of cannabis years before the UK would consider such a progressive policy.
All the motherfuckers in the House of Commons are taking the piss out of the populace and ignoring the popular opinion about a whole load of issues. And the thing is, loads of people reckon you (!) deserve to face a maximum penalty of 5 years in jail for smoking weed, and if you take magic mushrooms, it goes up to seven years. Supplying cannabis could get you 14 whole fucking years, or seven years if you behave yourself, and giving magic mushrooms to your mates could put you away for life.
Home Secretary Jacqui Smith made the laws against possession of cannabis MORE punitive when she was put in power and said loads of shit about schizophrenia that has actualy filtered into the mind of the populace and is making many people support YOU getting put in jail for YEARS. Grow a weed plant and you most likely face a custodial sentence, seriously. Kick the shit out of someone and you'll probably get a community order.
As a moral and upstanding member or society and a cannabis smoker, you have a duty to do something about this. The US has fucking shamed the UK here, face it. The country has demonstrated that it is more progressive than our shithole, which actually wants to put you in jail for growing plants. Society is saying, you smoke cannabis so you're not worth it.
Also, think that Ed Miliband and David Cameron are your choices. You should be pissed off about it, not like ;aah well I'm a stoner and I leave politics to everyone else'/ You are politics.
