sadly, laws aren't reviewed... Back in the 30's when the law came to be, it was the popular opinion that marijuana was bad.. (black jazz players an' all that jazz.. )
The problem lies in the debating. There ne4eds top be a way for you to get either some hard facts about voter smoking habbits, or make it easier to defunk the law than continue nforcing..Which brings me to another way a law caN BE REVIEWED..popular discontent. If ENOUGH (and we're talking hundreds of thousands) people expressed their popular discontent for the law, while maintaining civil integrity (cause if you cause a roit..literally.. then the MAJORITY will see marijuana as the cause and not the law, thus making the fight a mood one), then there is another way the law could be scaled down to nothing

e.g.
there is an old hoteliers law in australia that any man (back when women drank in the back house) that rides into the bar will have his horse watered and fed with hay at the owners request..
This law still is one.. i.e. someone could still demand that of the proprietor.
BUt seeing as it isn't used, and the reality would be as soon as someone tried it one, the law would be removed, it stays a defunct piece of legislation.

I agree. I wish someone would enstate legislation to review the effects of a law after a given number of years. After all, the environment we live in changes and a rigid set of laws is debilitating to our advancement. For example, this new law regarding people under 21 driving after midnight... that law would get revoked so quickly if it came under review. Oh well, I babble when I'm high.

You think people bitch about how brutal China is? You think its gonna change there system? Our system has worked for over 200 years "fine" and the .gov doesnt like to change. If you don't like the laws don't listen to em, Leary said it best "think for yourself, and question authorithy." Cause if its not one thing its another, and the only government you can totally agree with is governing yourself. Just try not to get caught breaking there rules.

That's not true, they create laws to win elections and increase their power.
