9. It really is

Greed is the unmistakable motivator - not any desire to "protect the public."

Why don't the cops walk into a liquor store , take all the liquor they want and then tax the store owner on the value of the liquor they stole? After all, alcohol causes more problems than any "drug' I know of.

Oh, yeah, we let the lushes drink to their heart's content. You can get as high as you want, as long as we approve of the substance. So, if getting high isn't illegal in one case, why is it illegal in the other case? Discrimination and GREED.

And believe me, from the sound of that revenuer's voice, I'd wager he is one greedy mofo.

It's wrong and it's time we stood up and said "enough."
