      Great video project, I love it. I notice the narrator tends to be a bit monotone, though.

      I wholeheartedly believe there are people involved with the “Drug War” that are well aware of their direct impact in fueling the violence associated with prohibition. Clearly one only has to look as far back as 80 years to witness the uncompromising fallacies caused by prohibitionist policies.

      In other words, their actions directly impact the death tolls and increasing violence, even of their own people, in a very negative way.

      But how could we get rid of these cartels without a fight? The only other logical way… put them out of business. It’s just as challenging — at least now it is (thanks Nixon, Reagan, Bushs, Clinton, & Obama!) — but no lives would have to be lost.

      Is anyone a gambler? ’cause i’m wondering which one will cross the finish line first. The PEOPLE or those who oppose? the dea seems to be addicted to its presents. Scatter all seeds of marijuana all over our USA! The answer is to overwhelm the opposing side beyond their control.

      Comedian Greg Giraldo died Wednesday (September 29) at age 44 from a reportedly accidental prescription-drug overdose. Giraldo had been hospitalized in New Brunswick, New Jersey, after he overdosed on prescription pills last weekend. According to TMZ, the overdose was not a suicide attempt.

      Giraldo reportedly collapsed Saturday evening in his hotel room in New Jersey, where he was performing at a club. He was discovered by friends after he failed to show up for his scheduled performance. He was rushed to Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick.

      Jim Norton confirmed the news via Twitter, including a picture with his fellow comedian: “Greg Giraldo passed away today.
