    The drug wars.
    For profit prisons that demand 90 percent occupantcy, to all the toys they get to play with that makes the defense companies happy, keeping people on dangerous drigs so big pharma makes more money to everything else.
    Alcohol is a much more dangerous substance.
    My bet it is pharma that is pushing for this crackdown.

    Passing a law that the Constitution doesn't allow does not negate the Constitution, it negates the law that was passed. Secret courts can't make up secret laws. SORRY FOR THE TYPOS :)

      I'm willing to bet that the opposition to marijuana legalization from the National Institute for Health (NIH), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) is driven by Big Pharma, with some support from the alcohol industry.

      Mark my words: At some point, some memo or other activity showing Big Pharma cozying up to these agencies will surface.
