Postby Berzerkirs » Fri Mar 19, 2010 2:03 pm

As some of you may know, I'm a big history/geography/politics buff. Perhaps not the smartest, but someone who enjoys to read all of that such stuff. One nation the has intrigued me is Bolivia, so, NSers...

If you were in charge of Bolivia, what would you do differently to set it in the path of greatness? Why?

Legalise cannabis. Encourage the growth of cannabis for medicinal and recreational use as well as the production of hemp for various products.

Unite the Coca farmers into a front of angry, chewing, farmers who force higher prices for their products.
Eventually, they would have enough money to begin and make the products made of coca.

So, in the end, Bolivia would be made the largest cocaïne producer in the world, cocaïne would be very cheap at first and then very expensive (due to everyone wanting it/addicted to it) and Bolivia would be very very rich.

You're absolutely shitting around the bush right?

Or is it beating around the bush?

I doubt it's even relevant, since the idiom doesn't retain valid context. But either way, if you really want to encourage the growth of cannabis, why not increase the most ponderous petri dish for cannabis legalization support around in the post-modern setting?

That dish that cultured and continues to culture the fervency of this stance would be the Internet.

I'm sure some 9,684,093 deaths are worth that.

- Stop racism
- Stop classism
- Stop any kind of discrimination. Bolivia is rife with those.

After those objectives, I would set Bolivia in the path of happiness instead than greatness. For greatness, somehow war will be an issue in the future. The idea of the cannabis, however, seems to be brilliant. But then again, the same can be done with cocaine, given that the region is pretty adequate, physically speaking, to grow said product.

I'm not sure how great an idea growing weed, or especially cocaine is, with any sort of government backing, or allowance.

The US doens't really like that, I don't know what they'd do abotu it, maybe bring it up at OAS, do sanctions, support a coup that sort of thing.
