California state senator trying to legalize hard drugs

Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) has made good on his promise to begin his effort to “decriminalize all drug use” step by step with the introduction of several bills at the start of the new legislative session.

Senate Bill 57 creates “safe injection sites” where drug addicts can use illicit drugs under medical supervision. Senate Bill 73 lowers the criminal penalties on users and dealers of heroin, opiates or opium derivatives, salts, cannabis, phencyclidine (PCP), and other dangerous drugs.

Still promised, but not yet introduced, is a bill Wiener says will legalize all psychedelic drugs such as LSD and magic mushrooms.

WEINER: Anti-drug laws are racist

Wiener insists America’s war on drugs has not only failed to eliminate illegal drug use and addiction, but drug criminalization is racist because drug laws disproportionately harm “black and brown communities” by increasing their incarceration rates.

“The War on Drugs and mass incarceration are policy and public health failures,” Wiener said in a recent press release.

But for others, who admit the country’s efforts to curb the use of harmful drugs via law enforcement hasn’t solved the problem, legalizing deadly drugs defies logic. This is especially baffling in California, where state legislators pride themselves on banning products and services that are much less dangerous.

‘Safe’ injection sites have poor track record

Safe injection sites, as proposed by SB 57, are not new. Australia and Canada have been operating centers for years, but not without problems. “Safe injection sites have not delivered on their promises and have caused a significant increase in trash, crime, and disorder,” writes Christopher Rufo with the Heritage Foundation.

Philadelphia was planning on opening the nation’s first safe injection site, but last week the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled that the injection center violated a federal statute dubbed the “crack house” law.

This law, passed in the 1980s, outlawed establishing any location to unlawfully use controlled substances. But according to Philadelphia Inquirer, the new Biden administration is expected to ease up on enforcement, especially if Biden’s choice to lead the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra, is approved.

Removes mandatory jail time for drug dealers

Last July, Becerra joined a multistate amicus brief supporting Philadelphia case to open its illegal drugs injection site.

Now back to SB 73. Read Wiener’s public pronouncements supporting SB 73 and you will see he is trying to mislead people on what the bill does. He says the bill will end mandatory minimum sentencing requirements for many drug offenses, but he only talks about the users and addicts who will not be required to go to jail for possession.

Yet pull up the language of the bill and you will see the text also removes minimum sentencing for “possessing for sale,” “forging or altering prescriptions,” and “agreeing to sell or transport” hard drugs. Wiener obviously isn’t eager to reveal his bill removes mandatory jail time for drug dealers, but that is what his bill does.

Doesn’t his last name say it all? I mean the fact he is a grown man and kept that last name….he never has respected himself lol. When you hear about long time ago immigration, people came here for the new life and changed their last name to match their profession. /scratches head

Vegas used to be the place to go for legal debauchery in the USA. LV made so much money other states copied them and built casinos. Now these states want to legalize drugs and prostitution as well.

This would decrease the rape and crime rates committed by those addicts and put a lot of gangs out of business.

This is how they grab guns as well. Many original medical marijuana users were forced to give up their guns…illegaly. They were lied to and gave them away for their licenses. Got a few of them to get their guns back and monetary compensation through my awesome, well-connected lawyers. God bless.

Kurt Vonnegut Welcome to the Monkey House foresaw it all.

Welcome to the Monkey House portrays a future where over population is a major problem. In order to keep the population under control the government makes citizens take pills that make them completely numb from the waist down.May 24, 2015

 In addition, the government encourages older citizens to end their lives through “ethical suicide”. The story follows Nancy, an ethical suicide parlor hostess who has been targeted by Billy the Poet, a protestor against the government who kidnaps hostesses, such as Nancy, and rapes them.

I wonder how much money the drug cartels are paying Senator Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) to pass this BS decriminalize all drug use bill. California getting stupider by the day.

I thought the majority of California already was on hard drugs. I also think putting cannabis in the same sentence as heroin, opiate derivatives, salts and PCP is asinine, as is referring to it as a “dangerous drug”. I don’t even smoke cannabis or do any drugs and even I know that.

Presumably, there are to be some doctors overseeing the “safe injection sites.” It takes a special kind of physician to refuse participating in injecting death row inmates while simultaneously assisting junkies as they commit suicide with hard drugs. This monster Wiener is straight out of Huxley’s “Brave New World.”

It’s your life, if you want to spend it using drugs, fine. Don’t expect others to pay for it. Your life is your own mess.
80% of drug cartel profits are from marijuana, so the more legalization of cannabis the better for us, and worse for Hispanic drug cartels, which incidentally are run by US government.

Google “us government runs Sinaloa cartel”

Taxpayers should put a stop to it.

No problem. Put lawmakers in a room with some PCPers for an hour. Nay 1/2 hour.
As a cop I took one wigging out into the USC ER in LA. Doctor demanded I remove the handcuff to the gurney I had on him. After confirming his order I did as he asked and left the room. It took about 2 minutes before all the damage and screaming demanding I go back.

Drug users, especially the ones whose lives revolve around constant drug use, are essentially non-productive people. They contribute nothing to society.
It is the hard-working, tax paying citizens who will be underwriting them.
They are a drain of tax dollars that could be used elsewhere.
That is a major reason why drugs are, and should stay illegal.
Pay attention to the basics: If your state representative and state senator support wacky Weiner and his bills, then you need to vote them out.

Weiner belongs to the Tribe.
Purveyors of degeneracy, depravity and deviancy for centuries. Sheer filth.
This is why humans have purged their societies of these vermin 109 times in 3000+ years.
Time for 110.
