Keep your eye on the prize, get marijuana off the DEA Schedule 1 of most dangerous drugs and dry this spat up at the Federal Level. It is from there AG Jeff Sessions reaches his racist, regressive ideology into the heart of marijuana regulatory authority. It should be a local issue, better known as States’ Rights, not national because like alcohol, tobacco & gambling that are issues of the people, within a specified locality, it is up to those people to decide how they run their locality. If Jeff Sessions needs something more to do, promote cocaine, PCP and methamphetamine up from Schedule II in exchange and chase those folks around.
The benefits of pot outweigh the risks by a long measure per the majority, it is time to admit that it is a basic plant with known properties that can be cultivated for commerce. Abstainers are no problem, just like teetotalers and non-smokers, we all have to get along. The “tolerant localities” would hopefully interconnect so even if regulated weed isn’t available [yet] in your town there is some place near enough to get to if needed for peace and tranquility. Chill, people. It’s vice management: if you want to do something then what do you do? Pot, pills, powder – which has proven it can be managed? Opiate and heroin overdoses are on the rise all over, there is no longer a small village to patrol, we are in bigger segments and more isolated as individuals so our FOCUS matters. Simple rules for pot: not for kids, no driving, no public consumption. So, take stock of your options and please support yourself, then you might indulge yourself.
Pot is being sold in your town, trust me… but where do the profits go?
