Let’s stay on track: Marijuana is an awesome drug, and more people should vote for it to be legal, or at least vote against the politicians who are against it.
I am, as noted yesterday, not a stoner, and I have very, very rarely partaken of it in the last decade. Usually a toke at a party when a joint is being passed around. Maybe a bong rip when someone is offering. Hell, I haven’t BOUGHT weed since 1996. At all. And I have no addiction to it, I don’t sit around with my tendons and veins standing out as I wait in anticipation for another headline about another state legalizing it. It’s just fun, like having a few beers with friends.
And if it was legal, yes, I would, absolutely would, buy some and have fun getting high when I had the time to do so.
The current political mood in the USA is moving toward the repeal of prohibition, and I am all for this. Let’s get Big Tobacco into the game. I wanna see joints sold in gas stations by Philip Morris. I want to be able to buy a pack of 10 joints for $20, and have half that money turned into state tax revenue. Watch state economies explode with surplus.
If you’re under the age of 60, I don’t care if you’re Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, or one of those other strange third parties: You know what I’m saying is true. Weed should not be illegal. It should be something you can buy freely, and enjoy freely, at home or at a party. And we should provide amnesty to the non-violent weed offenders currently incarcerated. The millions incarcerated or on parole/probation for non-violent drug offenses, the majority of which are possession of marijuana.
The current prohibition is batshit fucking stupid and serves no purpose beyond incarcerating people who, in my view, did nothing wrong at all.
