‘The Union: The Business Behind Getting High’

In advance of my DisinfoCast interview with Adam Scorgie, I’d like to share his well-known documentary The Union: The Business Behind Getting High with our readers. Scorgie and company were kind enough to upload the full version to YouTube. Many of you may have seen this, but if not, get ready for an infuriating but enlightening look at the hypocrisy and ineffectiveness of the United States’ continuing prohibition against marijuana.

    “I would say hundreds of billions [of deaths]”

    I like that statistic. It’s a nice, round, number. Considering the number of Humans (Homo Sapiens Sapiens) who have ever lived totals around 108 billion.

    Nothing more provides a measure of psychopathic greed and corruption of government than the bullshit cannabis laws.

    pot being illegal has lots more benefits than booze being illegal ever had
    pot is a gateway drug for the parasite known as The Criminal Justice System
    additionally, the prohibition keeps the price & number of users artificially high
    it’s just plain good for business
    and it keeps the peeps on their toes
    ’cause that’s what Freedom’s all about

    I live in an area of Wisconsin very conducive to growing tobacco. Being a farmer, I know people growing it. It simultaneously requires a license, with a maximum quota and also enjoys subsidies (not price supports, it always demands a good price). That’s right. The federal government simultaneously discourages and encourages the growth of this native plant.

    I have two hemp dress shirts that will be 21 years old this holiday season. My best looking ones also, as crisp and clean as when they were new. All my other shirts wear at a rate of having to be replaced every other year or so. The fabric starts to fray at points of friction, they get frizzy and finally thread bare. And they seem to pick up stains at some point that cant be removed by my cleaner. Hemp shirts just keep going, no fraying and stains always come out.
