Pot Growers are Terrorists Too

According to our government, people in the US who grow pot are comparable to Osama bin Laden, as well as, I kid you not, a threat to the environment. If so, this should not be a problem, since we decided to bypass signing the Kyoto Protocol anyway, although the comparison to selling drugs to funding terrorism seems a bit of a stretch. Indeed, terrorist sympathizers in this country have illegally sold and laundered many things (financial account transfers, tax exempt donations to charity groups, even cigarettes) to fund terrorist groups and/or activities abroad. I can not think of a single case where an indigenous pot grower has committed such an offense. By this logic, donating to charities and smoking cigarettes is equal to supporting Hezbullah.

What is even more curious is that the anti-marijuana bust/raid in question, nicknamed "Operation Alesia" (after a Roman battle, in which the Romans won), ended with the growers getting away. Way to stick it to those terrorist Gauls.

But what about pot? I think Bill Hicks said it best:
