The President of Uruguay, Jose Mujica has achieved global recognition and criticism for his efforts to legalize marijuana, which overwhelmingly succeeded in January of this year. President Mujica and the left-wing liberal group Frente Amplio, have openly supported legalization since the 1980's and Mujica has been on  record stating that marijuana has an almost spiritual effect on people.

"Jose Mujica once said that he’s been looking for god but [hasn’t] found him yet. By legalizing marijuana and opening the doors of spiritual happiness to the young, he might not have found the god of other nations…, but he certainly has followed in the footsteps of Jesus when he said ‘Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these,’" 

With such rhetoric about the heavenly qualities of the still largely illegal substance, it is no wonder the Nobel Peace Price could be in his future. After all, why not trust the opinion of a organization that gave the same prize to President Obama who to date has killed more people with drone strikes than any other president. 

So why would the world's more powerful and influential elite potentially give the award to a pothead? Maybe it's because if the regular Joe is stoned all the time without any negative legal repercussions, he will become more distracted by less meaningful issues and events, leaving the public in even less control of their destinies and willpower to resist the coming global change. 

Another aspect of the changing view of the elite towards the legalization effort could be attributed to the ability to tax, regulate and control even more of the wealth of the world's population. In the USA the government at state and federal levels would have to setup agencies to enforce policies relating to the sale and consumption of the plant. It would also legitimize illegal drug cartels in countries like Mexico, which are publicly known to have working connections with the DEA, like operation Fast and Furious which funneled money and automatic weapons across the border to destabilize the region and to push an unpopular gun control movement in the U.S. 

Not only will the globalist elite control most of the wealth, they will be able to push a drug on the masses that will only help them to achieve complete control by rendering the masses sedated and distracted by it.

*Disclaimer* The Mindful Patriot is not against legalization and holds to the libertarian principle that all men should have the ability to consume whatever they wish without any governmental interference.

  1. I think the reason these "world's most powerful people" are so supportive of it is because the Nobel committee is run by an "intellectual elite" rather than a financial elite and is more likely to know what they're talking about.
