Care to Guess?
Washington fucking RULES today.
SMOKE UP BITCHES
AND MARRY WHOEVER YA WANT
CAUSE GUESS WHAT, YOU CAN !!!
I would bet that most people who will vote to LEGALIZE POT this year, will also vote for Obama. I mean, yeah, Eric Holder has been vicious towards Medical Clubs, but at least Obama has SMOKED POT!
It would only be worse if Romney were President.
Also, my hunch is that most of these potheads have CELL PHONES not landlines, and have never been called by one of those Landline Polls (aren’t they ALL landline polls??).
So my hunch is that the pollsters are really not considering how IMPORTANT legalization is to Potheads, and how much it will drive them to the polls in states where Legalization is on the ballot. It won’t matter much in Washington or Oregon for the Presidential race, but it could influence other races, especially in Colorado.
Am I wrong?
I can’t think of ANYTHING that would redistribute wealth more than Legalizing Marijuana!
I mean, seriously, do you KNOW how many people would THRIVE with the legalization? People who are growers, people who own or work in cannabis clubs, people who own gardening companies, or auto showrooms, or gift shops, or (soon to be on every corner) cannabis cafés, and all kinds of industries that haven’t even been CONCEIVED OF yet! I mean, it is already a booming industry here in California, where we only have Medical Marijuana!
Just picture it! If Marijuana becomes fully legal (not just Medical) in COLORADO (which looks very likely), do you realize how many people will RELOCATE there? The Tourism industry will probably triple, at LEAST! People would travel from all over the world to check it out! I mean, I know I WILL!! Amsterdam in the USA, YES!!
And then think of all the lawyers, bail bondsmen, cops, judges, uniform companies, prison food and drug supply companies, prison gear companies, multi-million dollar contractors who build all these new prisons (they think they need)…not to mention all the big corporations that now use Prison Labor (at pennies per hour) for their Customer Service Call Centers!
Yup! I see a definite redistribution of wealth possible here…and I gotta say — I’m LIKING it!
"I think you should always ask the question of if you can solve a problem with ‘more freedom’, instead of less.
I believe, because I’m a nut, that if you don’t have the right to put whatever you want in your body, you’re not living in a free society. I would like to see everything legal. I mean, I don’t like to do ‘pragmatic’, as opposed to ‘moral arguments’, but we are unable to keep drugs out of prison. That means that the level of draconian police state that happens in prisons right now, still won’t work to stop drugs. So that means that all we’re doing is giving a huge amount of money to bad people.
…I would be in favor of at least trying legalizing all drugs, because I think freedom means the freedom to be stupid. No one needs freedom to do the right thing. No one needs freedom to do the smart thing. We need freedom to screw up our lives, and do stupid things, and I think everybody deserves that right.”
~ Penn Gillette, on Current TV’s “The Young Turks”
EIGHT MILLION PEOPLE, what the HELL are we doing? Can you imagine if we arrested 8 million people for having a beer after work? And that’s in essence what we’re doing here…but the politicians are immovable. You know, the Republicans are NEVER going to do it, and the Democrats honestly, nine times out of ten, are cowards…’Oh, my God, the Republicans will yell at us!’”
