The reason Cannabis is illegal.. Not what you may expect

I will keep this post short and to the point. Feel free to comment.

The brainwashed think cannabis is illegal because it hurts people and kills.

The paranoid think cannabis is illegal because of government conspiracy.

The truth is, cannabis is illegal because if it were legal, it would hurt the profits of the drug companies, would be nearly impossible to tax in a way that is beneficial to the government, and because the government has lied their way into such a deep hole that if they came out and spoke the truth, people would be outraged that they lied for so long and tore apart so many families and lives.

The truth is that cannabis is safe, non-chemically addicting, good for your health (assuming you don't smoke it) and cannot kill you. You cannot overdose on weed. Period. You will not go all psycho and kill others either. Nobody will die or get hurt if you consume cannabis. The anti-drug campaigns are all bullshit.

Why are people generally so wasteful?

I was looking around the internet today and found some pictures dealing with Americas mass consumption. Sad really.

The Apple MacBook: Good or No good?

For anyone who doesn't know, I've been looking around for a laptop to replace my aging desktop. I've been looking for a low power laptop that can do everything I need and use as little electricity as possible.

Today I came across The Apple MacBook. It seems to have some really nice specs. I'm pretty sure I could load Ubuntu on it also which would serve the purposes I need. I just wonder how environmentally friendly it is.

Well, it is Energy Star compliant. I guess that would mean it uses very little electricity. It doesn't say exactly how much electricity is used, but does say the battery should last about four and a half hours on a charge during "normal use". That's pretty good compared to my friends laptop that only stays charged about two hours.

Has anyone reading this ever used this particular laptop? My wife used to have an iBook that once loaded with Ubuntu, I fell in love with. It was fast and usable with Ubuntu and was overall great... EXCEPT the iBook she had overheated very quickly and eventually burned out the graphics.

UPDATE: I also just came across the Apple MacBook Pro. It looks nice too. Any opinions?
