    I thought Spinal Taps were not used anymore? Unconstitutional or something like that? I think I need to find a better news source.
    Polygraphs are also illegal, but it is amazing how many "pre-employment rights" the US Government is exempt from. Would you expect any less for your tax dollars?

Consequently national policy has remained largely stagnant, primarily encompassing the views of the religious right, affected only when corporations buy out elected representatives. It's unlikely we'll see changes in national policy affected until we see the implementation of some sort of national referendum system through a Constitutional amendment.
    That combined with the economic factor. If pot was to become legal, the "powers that be" such as the DEA, etc. would not have nearly as much to do. Show me a narcotics officer that says he wants all drugs to be eradicated and I will show you a fucking liar, they would be out of a job. I have known MANY narc officers in my lifetime, and I can tell you it is a profitable business. (Never mind they could use this additional surplus of manpower to hunt terrorists, etc if they did not have to worry about pot!). It is like the time John McAffee was on "Nightline" right after the Michalangelo virus broke out and said that "Virus writers should all be locked up and viruses must all be destroyed". I'm sure he cried all the way to the bank over the infections..

    Second, look at the industries that would suffer if growing hemp (it does not even have to be "pot", just industrial hemp) became legal. The textile industries, oil, wood, paper, booze, tobacco, pharmaceutical, etc. industries would all get a swift economic kick in the nutsack. All of these industries would suffer, therefor the politicians they fund would suffer. Why else would it be legal to have more arsenic in children's cereal than THC in adult's shampoo?

    The FBI has very stringent requirements for their agents regarding their drug use history (in an attempt to hire agents who haven't broken the law) and tests for past use of hard drugs via spinal tap. From http://www.stopthedrugwar.org/chroni...anddrugs.shtml:

    The [FBI], which maintained a strict ban until 1994, now operates under guidelines that allow prospective applicants to have smoked marijuana up to 15 times, though not within the previous three years; hard drugs up to five times, though not within the previous 10 years.

    FBI Denver office spokeswoman Jane Quimby told the Times, "The general preference is still to hire someone who hasn't broken the law, but the harsh reality is... there just aren't that many people." Quimby, who was in charge of Denver police hiring from 1997 to 1999 said that of 35 agents hired on her watch, one-third admitted to having smoked pot.


    So now we can all stand back and laugh at the government's hypocrisy, in that the CIA (and the Bush family) is responsible for the LSD culture in America.

    Interesting note. My (now) as of late Development manager just jumped ship to the DOJ. On his last day of work at the company, 3 'agents' arrived to do 'suprise' interviews with random people in the office (I was not picked). They asked questions like "has he ever lied?" very ambiguosly. Who doesn't lie? But like all g-man questions, it probalbly had a hidden meaning.
