America’s first Drug Czar and conservative commentator Bill Bennett penned an op-ed for CNN.com in which he suggests that Showtime’s series “Weeds” is “damaging,” and “would never be aired” if “our country was making a serious assault on drug abuse.” But Bennett’s crazy doesn’t stop there. He co-authored the piece with Alexandra Datig, a business, political campaign, and real estate consultant, recovering addict, and Prop 19 opponent whose website, NipItInTheBud2010.org, suggests that legalizing marijuana is “un-American,” puts “our national security at risk” and compares legalization to 9/11.

California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein must really love the senseless, failed war on marijuana. Not only has she come out very publicly in opposition to Proposition 19, which would legalize, tax and regulate cannabis, but she also has taken the bold step of actually becoming the co-chair for the No on Prop 19 campaign.

The No on Prop 19 campaign – those wonderful folks protecting marijuana prohibition – have stooped to attacking cops, judges, doctors, and teachers on the campaign’s official website.
In a landing page from an online ad, the No on Prop 19 campaign photoshopped burning joints into the mouths of 5 people from stock photos dressed as a doctor, teacher, judge, police officer, and a young woman.
Does the No on Prop 19 campaign trust our public guardians so little, it thinks all that’s stopping police, judges, doctors, and teachers from going to work with a joint is ending marijuana prohibition?
