It doesn’t have to be a joint. Why can’t it be a chocolate,a gummie, or some tea? Just goes to show you the stereotypical ignorance of the mainstream media about an industry that is rapidly evolving and full of healthy alternatives if someone doesn’t like to smoke.

One of the most ironic stories I have ever heard, second hand from someone else, regarding a drug bust for marijuana possession which should by now be legal at the national level if it weren’t for The Republican Party and many Democrats receiving large donations from drug cartels.

Guy says he was pulled over for what he thought was a traffic violation at first. When the law enforcement officer approached, he was asked to step out of the car. He was asked if he had marijuana in the car because the officer said he smelled marijuana.

No need to explain what happens next as I’m sure you all know.

When the guy was asked what the police cruiser looked like he responded that the car was a black Dodge Charger with no markings on it.

All I could think of after hearing the story was of the irony. The Dodge Charger is a car made in Canada, where marijuana is legal at the national level.

So the guy arrested for marijuana possession here in The United States was pulled over by a police officer just doing his job in a car made in Canada where marijuana is in fact legal. Get it? Do you get the irony? Of course you do.

The big three automakers have been making cars north and south of the border for some time now and police departments here in The US outfit the cars for police cruisers and then arrest Americans for crimes that are not illegal in the country where the cars are made.

Now if that isn’t truly a slap in the face of the American tax paying citizen, I don’t know what is. It’s time to legalize marijuana in America.

With all of the recent vaping illnesses linked to illegal vape cartridges it is clear that marijuana legalization has become a national health issue not unlike alcohol prohibition became a national health issue.

From my original post on the issue dated September 12, 2019:

The recent deaths as a result of vaping adulterated vape cartridges are an unfortunate result of a human demand driven into the dark corners of the black market.

There really is no difference between the deaths today as a result of vaping and the deaths which resulted from adulterated alcohol during alcohol prohibition from 1920-1933. There is no difference.

On the evening fear broadcasts they are flashing the giant letters “THC” as if it were the culprit but we all know that is not the case.

During prohibition the public wanted to enjoy alcohol. The shortsightedness of the elected body desiring to stay in office outlawed legal alcohol production yet the demand did not disappear. The net effect is that the black market stepped in and one of the side effects of alcohol prohibition was bath tub gin. As many as 50,000 drinkers died (more were blinded or maimed) from bath tub gin, so today six vaping deaths would seem to be statistically insignificant in comparison. But the deaths are indeed significant in that they indicate the problem with making something illegal a majority of the population desires and driving the demand into the black market where resides a lack of regulation and quality control.

Our current laws concerning consensual behaviors are making the country sick in so many ways that when you look at an elected official that is against marijuana legalization you have to ask if that person is either paid by the black marketeers, just plain stupid, or doesn’t care for their constituents? In any case, they don’t belong there.

In these recent vaping deaths we see that history repeats itself.

You know, when I looked at the aerial pictures of the so-called strike on Saudi oil facility and the billowing black smoke rising up from the fire it reminded me of the recent fire at a train derailment in Texas where the chemicals were burning off and there was a large black plume of smoke rising up into the air. But the plume of smoke there and the plume of smoke at the Saudi Oil facility in pictures from the air appeared to be about the same size. Yet, our media, the ones always looking to get us involved in a war, the weapons of mass destruction which never really existed type of war, were saying that the smoke was coming from a facility that represented six percent of the Saudi oil supply.

I call “Bullshit!”

There is no way that fire is coming from a facility that represents six percent of the Saudi oil supply. The Saudi oil supply is huge and widely dispersed. The story is being overblown by our complicit media to drive up the price of oil and possibly get our country involved in another expensive and disastrous war before we are done paying for the previous expensive and disastrous wars we are still involved in currently.

Buy a Tesla or another alternative fuel vehicle if you are looking for a new car. The oil industry is going to bankrupt this country if we keep up like this.

Nobody would disagree that some pretty bad things have happened through the use of guns this year.

But there are many more issues of significantly greater import than the deaths as a result of gun violence. Not that those deaths are insignificant, rather, that the liberals use the deaths in conjunction with a ratings hungry media to capture the country’s attention making it look like they are doing something for the well being of the country.

There are so many other issues that the elected let pass over their desks without batting an eye that you know they are using the gun debate to protect far more significant crimes.

Chemicals in our food are an example causing an epidemic of cancer, particularly among males. How about asking why we have been starting needless wars for the last 40 years, something the liberals have historically lined up to do (except for Sanders and Feingold)? How about the tax code? Why don’t we have a flatter tax code? Why do some people get away with paying very few taxes while others pay the bulk of them? Why do we have school vouchers? Why are our tax dollars going to private religious institutions that run schools, too? What has happened to the middle classes in this country? Why do corporations receive a tax break for offshoring? What is happening to the fourth amendment? Why are corporations allowed to track, save, and buy and sell your internet activity wholesale? Why is there a federal debt? Why is there a federal deficit? This country’s tax rolls are huge. There should be neither a deficit or a debt. This country’s elected have demonstrated a massive disregard for fiscal management of the tax payers’ dollars.

The list goes on and on. But the liberals, and some others, continue to use the gun debate as if it were the only issue out there while the country falls apart, slowly, but surely falls apart.

Liberals are not alone in using diversionary tactics but concerning this particular issue and how it has been handled…

Middle finger.

When did Facebook become a front for The Communist Party?

If you are going to allow political parties to have pages on Facebook you will have to make sure that their pages are open for discussion. You cannot let them make outlandish and false statements about the condition of the country and then when someone comes along and points out that they sound ridiculous, they filter those comments from their pages and block the user from editing their own comments and not being able to defend themselves.
