The war on marijuana


#341

Come for the racist analysis, stay for the sight of a republican complaining about smoke impinging on his freedom to breathe clean air.


#342

This guy is like the archetype for idiotic old guy who had no idea what he’s talking about.

I love how as soon as he starts talking about black people, you start hearing all the chairs squeak as folks shift uncomfortably in their chairs.


#343

Because of character make-up, wtf is that?


#344

The most racist shit possible, naturally.


#345

Where is the “That’s racist” gif when I need it?

Vermont legislature just passed a bill legalizing recreational use (the first legislator based legalization in the US, rather than a ballot initiatives), the Governor has indicated that he will sign it.

They haven’t worked out the details on sales and taxation yet, so its mostly a legalization of possession for personal consumption and ownership of a couple of plants. A separate commission will work out sales details in the next year.

I live in Indiana. Any day now.


#349

We’re trying again.

#351

Justin Amash introducing legislation that makes sense? Isn’t that the 6th sign of the apocalypse?


#352

We’ve gotta be on like sign number 40 or 50 by now.


#353

Amash is a fairly extreme ideologue, but he’s a libertarian ideologue, and so half of the stuff he supports (most of the stuff regarding government involvement in social issues) is reasonable.

He also highlights how Rand Paul is pretty fake in terms of this kind of stuff.


#354

I am now investing in marijuana futures via Stash. We’ll see how this goes.


#355

Please elaborate.


#356

Stash” just rolled out a mutual fund called “Corporate Cannabis”, which I’ve added to my portfolio. I don’t know too much about it, it’s an “aggressive” risk, but it seems like a good cause.


#357

So… your portfolio has gone off into the weeds?

#359

New best friend?


#360

Hard to believe but I miss Boehner. He was relatively sane and open to working across the aisle. Of course the crazies made that impossible.
