BLM and M4BL, according to their websites and social media, have been pushing hard for a series of bills to legalize all drugs, legalize all prostitution activities, expunge or delete all criminal histories, shut down all of the jails and prisons, and to shut down all of the police offices.

Yeah, it’s worked out great for Seattle, Portland, and Colorado. What could go wrong?

This will be another way to render the population more vulnerable to disease. Smoking marijuana causes cancer and schizophrenia, especially in the younger population.

BLM wants everything decriminalized.

They want Police Narcotic units executed.

That’s the Big Picture, but with Politics, they hide the ultimate goal.

This is just one objective before an Election.

America did just fine without criminalizing drugs until some lawyer came up with “diminished capacity” therefore the problem is lawyers. (The root of all evil.)

"What is the Cost of the Bill?"

The answer to that question is shown in comment #4, if such a bill were to pass.

It won't pass through the Senate or the President's desk, though. It's only a warmup for getting it to pass, if the Democrats are elected. And as seen in the manifestos of the new Democrats and the politicians in their single parents' pockets, it won't stop with marijuana.

The Democrats and their most influential new constituents will continue their push, until every freedom is violated. They'll push, until all good Americans are disarmed. They intend to leave the U.S.A. in ruins and allow the world's oligarchs to enslave our descendants.

There is absolutely nothing in the Constitution about the government regulating what we put into our bodies. It is always amazing that people who think of themselves as freedom loving conservatives turn into statist jackboot licking thugs when it comes to cannabis.

“they hide the ultimate goal. They want to get rid of us.”

Bill Ayers (mentor to the Obamas in Chicago, likely Barack’s ghostwriter) speculated in the early 1970’s that 25 million Americans would likely have to be eliminated, for not conforming to the new world order Ayers wanted.

In the Fox News piece, there’s a mention of a skewed, subjective and dishonestly administered Gallup poll. I see many Republicans. We know that nearly all of them are against drug legalization. The rare exceptions are the very few unkempt characters who show up once in a while with talk of crazy conspiracy theories.

I’m not in one of the hopelessly Democrat states, though, so we don’t see as many attempts by the Ron Paul types to infiltrate or troll in meetings with our physical presence (as differentiated from the anonymity of social media).

The Democrats are using this bill to create a Hillary “hot sauce” moment with the stoners. Then they poison-pill it with some “social justice” nonsense that the Republicans will find unacceptable. They are desperate.

John Adams: "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."

Truer words, never spoken.

Trump should simply have it removed as a DEA CSA Schedule 1 drug - which is really overkill. Let the states deal with it as they see fit.

“Tis substantially true, that virtue or morality is a necessary spring of popular government. The rule indeed extends with more or less force to every species of free Government.”
