I remember Jimmy Carter’s campaign where he was photographed wearing an Allman Brothers Band T-shirt and having decriminalization-legalization on his agenda. It worked out for him okay but here we are more than 40 years later...
The next hiring boom, and housing boom, will be the boom in the incarceration industry - just like the Energy industries, the Rule of Law will promote both Justice for Socially unJust, and peace and security for the rest of society!
It’s something to promise on the carrot end and “vote for me or your business gets it!” on the stick end. Perpetual uncertainty, perpetual coercion. Not a good thing.
“If legalization takes place, cops cant seize cars, cash, homes on the pretext that it might be used for marijuana sales. Ends the cash cow that has taken hundreds of millions illegally from law abiding taxpayers.”
In addition to asset forfeiture...which Sessions loves...the new policy gives law enforcement more excuses to harass and push people around.
There are no less marijuana users or marijuana businesses today than there were before Sessions acted, the only difference is they are now no longer legal taxpayers they are “criminals”
Weed should not be a schedule 1 substance and the tax money lost to drug cartels and criminals due to the sale of marijuana on the black market, which will continue and increase due to the actions of the AG and DOJ, additionally the money wasted on the policing, prosecution and incarceration of potheads is a massive waste of resources. proven historically by the implementation and the eventual repeal of the prohibition of. alcohol.
How many other laws passed through Congress and signed by a president has DOJ decided not to enforce?? This action by DOJ and Obama to rule the law null and void can’t stand. Session did the right thing.
Yeah cause California citizens voting to allow people to make Thier own choice about smoking pot is a much bigger issue than they state ignoring federal immigration law. Gtfooh with your stupid pictures, use your words of you are able.
govt employees and their unions ust trying to pad their budgets
drug addition is exactly the same as it was before the ( failed ) war on drugs. the war on drugs has not stopped one person from becoming a addict.
“The states have the right to legalize marijuana, or whatever else they want.”
Like heroin, LSD, Ecstacy?
That’s what Soros wants.
He’s working on heroin right now in Seattle, Washington.
Potheads react to pictures?
Potheads love their pot.
Medicinal heroin and recreational heroin.
You got it.
Thank god there’s none of that stuff in Texas bwhahahaha
