Why Is There All of This Marijuana Stuff On Cop Block’s Facebook Page?

Not that we owe you any answers, we just get sick of hearing the same vapid questions over and over.

As recently discussed, Cop Block is making some changes and evolving as a media outlet. Giving a voice to the culture of the oppressed is one of our new goals, and a decades long drug war has oppressed marijuana users more than any other victimless crime law enforced by police. So yeah, we think it is relevant.

However, the first thing to remember is that what we do and how we do it is really none of your fucking business. If you really care then you can join us as a regular contributor and earn the opportunity to help make our decisions. But if you think we are going to take bitching from the sidelines seriously, you are way too fucking full of yourself.

Next, the Facebook page is not Cop Block. It is simply a place where we are able to share our activism and the articles we write for our website. Allowing side projects that broaden the scope of our message and audience to use that page helps us share the Cop Block message with those who may be more interested in drug war issues than policing issues alone. Drawing people in through various related interests can help bring them to our cause.

If anything we hope to further use the Facebook page to expand our message and appeal. If you just want the articles specifically about policing you should be going right to our website to get them. Please spare us the narrow-minded bitching if you are too lazy to do so and just want Facebook to spoonfeed you all of your information. This is you being the problem, not us.

“I don’t want everyone to think that all people who want police to be held accountable are just potheads.”

a) I don’t give a shit what you think if you aren’t a regular contributor.

b) Most of us actually are pot heads and proud of it, and we see no benefit in aiding the prohibitionists by keeping it hidden behind closed doors. We are open with weed for the same reason we interact with police on camera, because we are willing to put our freedoms and liberties on the line to help insure yours. You could be a bit more grateful.

c) Shut the fuck up about accountability already.

For many of us and others in the activism community, marijuana played a major role in how we came to our current position. Once you have known the peaceful and creativity-inspiring effects of cannabis and then seen what police will do to you for just trying to have that kind of positive experience, the problem of policing becomes crystal clear. For many, seeing it through this lens is how they became interested in fighting against policing in the first place. Obviously cannabis is relevant to Cop Block.

“Yeah, well okay, but this marijuana article has nothing to do with police or laws and I think it is stupid.”

a) I don’t give a shit what you think if you aren’t a regular contributor.

b) Remember what I said about drawing other people in so we can spread our message to those whose first interests might not be policing issues? Cannabis culture extends beyond police issues into all kinds of areas, so to reach them there needs to be some variety of content.

c) We probably wouldn’t like everything you do either. That is just how life works. Most of us can appreciate the efforts of others without feeling the need to insult them when they do something we don’t appreciate as much as their other work. We call this “not being a total fucking asshole” and anybody can do it.

If you don’t have a sense of humor and aren’t willing to have an open mind, then by all means, take your business elsewhere. None of you sideline critics ever gave us anything in return for the efforts you did appreciate, yet you still think you get to tell us how to do our jobs? Why don’t you take all that idiotically misspent time and effort and go out there and actually fight against the police and government – who steal from you then force their services on you?

Complaining about a free meal you weren’t willing to cook yourself because you didn’t like the spices is childish buffoonery. You will either enjoy our blend of herbs, not enjoy them quietly, or leave the table. That is how you adult.
