What amazes me is that cannabis legalization SHOULD be a non-partisan issue. Obviously dems/libs should be for it, but so should repubs/conservatives. It's SUPPOSED to be a conservative value to have smaller government, fewer laws and very importantly: that the government stay out of what an individual puts in their own body.

I guess 80 years of propaganda and lies is hard to shake off.

Hell, taxes & revenue should be enough reason for conservatives to back legalization.

But, as should be evident, like the democrats, the republican party is a tool of the elite who prefer the revenue (and the control) that prohibition provides the prison industrial complex, the pharmecutical industry and of course the alcohol & tobacco industries. Can't have people growing their own medicine or intoxicants in their back yard because there's no profit in it.

Not only do conservatives back the profit motive, but the "drug wars" are a way to target SOME people for harassment and detainment , and ultimately disenfranchisement. Conservatives always bleat about "freedom", but what about the freedom for an adult to ingest any chemical they want into their own personal bodies. Is that not the ultimate "freedom" ?

It absolutely is. Conservatives have allowed 80 years of reefer madness BULLSHIT to confuse them into a remarkably hypocritical stance on this issue.

Brand new boogie without the hero.

I would like to have it taken off Schedule 1 substances and at least decriminalized. I don't think the entire US is ready for legalized recreational use therefore leaving it up to the individual states may make more sense in the short term.

Taking it off schedule 1 could make it easier to fund more robust testing of potential medicinal uses including manipulation of the plant itself as has already been done with the Charlotte's Web group.

Individual state recreational state legalization is experimentation. Only familiar with Colorado since I did a short term investment for a start-up. Profitable? Yes. Risky? Yes Big $$$ payoff? Better than putting the same amount of money in the bank for 2 years, but no....can't quit my day job!!!

Style is the second cousin to class
