"White House hints at crackdown on recreational marijuana"
Jobs? What jobs? Infrastructure? What infrastructure? Economy? What economy?
This might be a little rough because this
perturbs me pisses me off.
What the hell do Trump and his team "think" they're doing?
"White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Thursday suggested the Trump administration will step up enforcement of federal laws against recreational marijuana.
"I do believe that you'll see greater enforcement," Spicer said, while adding the exact policy is "a question for the Department of Justice."
It's the latest sign President Trump is poised to take a tougher approach than the Obama Justice Department did in states that have legalized the use of recreational marijuana."
Oh ya, you're such a tough son of a bitch Trump, you and your little lemmings Spicer and Sessions. A trio of simple minded misfits who are making Jed and Granny look aristocratic. Spicer must have been one of those backstabbing assholes in high school who stood off in the corner at the keggers taking notes so he could squeal like a pig on those who were smoking the ganja. He'd go in the next day and tattle on everybody to the principal and come out with his nose looking browner than a Kardashian in Bermuda. Or maybe he was never invited, maybe that's his fucking problem.
I went to a pot shop last night, a LEGAL pot shop here in Vancouver, Washington. It still sounds strange to me but it's been legal here for a couple years. After over 40 years of illegally partaking in the pleasures of the cannibas plant, i.e., breaking the law for over 40 years, I can now go down to my neighborhood (literally) pot shop and get whatever I want, legally.
Why was it illegal for all that time but now it isn't? Why was I a de facto criminal for 40 years and now I'm not? Why can I go buy some weed and tell everyone on this blog that I'm smoking some RIGHT NOW, and someone in another state can get arrested for a single joint?
Why do people still want it to be illegal? Don't they know it's already legal? Why are these little white men in Washington, D.C. saying it should be illegal and that they want to "increase enforcement" when WE THE SERFS VOTED TO LEGALIZE IT!?!? Who the fuck are they?
We still have neanderthals in D.C. and at every state capitol, ranting and raving about the evil weed. They still don't think it should be legal. What went wrong in the seventies, man? I was there and saw it, it seemed like we'd grow out of this back then. I remember getting stopped by cops in the early seventies and when they found the weed, they'd just give us a little lecture and let us go. Some let us keep the weed. I certainly didn't envision such vitriol after 40 more years. WTF is wrong with people?
That's why we have wars, man. It's the same thing.
Now, depending on where you live, you can get tased and die if you have a joint while your neighbors in the next state can visit the Pot Shop. It's a symbol for the country, how fucked up everything is now. FUBAR, fucked up beyond all recognition.
Two primary excuses have built this police state we live in now, the war on drugs and the war OF terror. Both need to be ended but Trump wants to expand them, both of them. What are there, more than 500K arrests for marijuana "offenses" every year? (2012 - 749,000). While it's legal for recreational use in eight states and for medical purposes in twenty states? What kind of deal is that?
Now little hands Trump wants to get tough, tougher than Obama, on those that use the evil weed recreationally. Oh, medical weed is OK, he thinks it's beneficial. Check out this rationale:
"Spicer telegraphed the administration won't take a get-tough approach against medical marijuana, saying Trump believes in its ability to "comfort" people suffering from debilitating diseases.
But he said he takes a different view of recreational marijuana, linking it to the abuse of opioid drugs in states across the U.S."
What bullshit. There is zero evidence that using the weed leads to opioid abuse, that's the old "gateway" drug BS we've been hearing for decades. This is what, 2017? The fact of the matter is the weed reduces the abuse of opioids because it's a much better and safer alternative to treat pain and other health issues. That rationale is asinine and based on lies.
These flakes are flying by the seat of their pants and have no fucking idea what they're doing. They're just going with the flow. "Ya, weed illegal, we must sound tough". Imagine applying this type of thinking to managing the largest military ever assembled for a murderous Empire. Trump wants to be tougher than Obama, how's that going to work out with the Empire's military might in his tiny hands? How's that going to work with all those nuclear weapons he wants to build. Imagine this type of thinking relative to creating and administering the health care system for 330 million citizens.
Those that thought things would change with Trump
should have their heads examined were wrong.
This is why we need direct democracy nationally.
