We can thank this moron from Texas for blocking federal legalization of marijuana!

Guest blog from Dave Stancliff at "As It Stands"

It seems that the opinion of one good-old-boy Congressman from Texas outweighs yours. Meet the asshole who is making sure the failed War on Drugs never ends:
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), also known for his anti-immigrant policies, has said his House Judiciary panel will not consider the Barney Frank/Ron Paul bill. Period.
Now, we all know that this half-wit Texan already has his mind made up, so maybe there’s not much we can do about that. HOWEVER. What we CAN do is to make every single day of the rest of his life an occasion upon which he was reminded of his rank stupidity.

Here’s Rep. Lamar Smith’s contact info. Let him know what you think of the fact that he is now, by his own choice, the man responsible for continuing marijuana prohibition in the United States.
You can get started by emailing Lamar (click here), but this “man of the people’s” website makes you put in your zip code to do so (handy way to reduce citizen input), so you’re going to need to be from the 21st Congressional District of Texas to do that.
Meanwhile, you can call and write his offices: Washington, DC Office

  1. you mean he was the ONLY person to vote against it and so the bill didn't pass????

  2. Can't get a bill like this passed without being cleared by the House Judicary panel which is headed by Smith.

    Hope was shot down because of a senseless hate of pot. Look at his history. And he's decided our fate...

  3. This is a great illustration of what our so-called "democracy" really is all about; "Executive Sole" where power is all that counts. Our whole system is setup to cement power into the hands of the upper class. These appointments are done strategically so that the right man is in the right position and a hundred thousand peasants are powerless to get past him.
    I'm not sure what a bunch of angry e-mails will accomplish. As with Prop 19; profits make for some strange bedfellows. Lamar Smith is in bed with commercial pot growers; whether he means to be or not.
    Thanks Dave, I look forward to your column.
