Legal We always try to avoid politics like the plague here on OSNews, but sometimes, it's hard to avoid it. Take the case of Joel Tenenbaum, who could be liable for over 1 million USD if the Recording Industry Association of America gets its way. While many hoped for a change of pace when it comes to these matters, Barack Obama's Department of Justice has squarely sided with the RIAA.

Obama or not Obama, if I say that people should be allowed to smoke whatever the hell they want as long as it doesn't affect other people, would you advice me to go smoke my ganja as well?


No, I would tell you that you have a very naive, limited, and western point of view of the world. When you buy and consume Marijuana you are supporting an industry of organized crime and death. You think you are affecting no one, but in countries like Jamaica, where I just returned from, people die and suffer so Westerners with too much money and time on their hands can get high, eat cheetos and watch Super Troopers.
