Did you see in the paper that some big money groups are trying to get a medical marijuana initiative on the ballot in next year’s elections? When I saw that I not only pissed my pants but I shat them as well. You can say it’s only for “medical purposes” if you want, however let’s not kid ourselves this measure would basically make marijuana legally available. Legal weed. What’s next? How about making assault rifles legal or legalizing texting while driving.
This move would also put a large number of pot-sniffing dogs out of work since they can’t smell the difference between the legal medical marijuana and the illegal stuff. It makes me sad, man.
Then there’s the cost. Grass doesn’t grow on trees and don’t think for one minute that your Uncle Sam won’t take a hit. That crap is expensive enough right now without adding a number (no pun) of government taxes and harvesting fees.
Plus, while polls show most Floridians support medical marijuana less than half have ever smoked it. Shouldn’t those people be allowed to get high before they vote so they know what it’s like? I have a lot of issues with this issue.
As a young boy growing up along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay my mother would warn me about smoking pot, which, for some reason she called “jimson weed.” She’d say “Ronnie you may think smoking marijuana will make you cool, but remember cool also means not so hot.” Thanks mom.
