Just as I suspected...the sun came up and gravity still holds us down.
Not much has changed. The plunder will continue. You know the story. In fact, some would say it's a mandate to do so.
California's Prop 37 was machine rigged or the result of a dumbed down population or both. But a couple of states got a positive vote count to implement a version of marijuana legalization and what could be the reanimation of a domestic hemp industry.
It's not perfect. It may be a start
Amendment 64, the marijuana legalization initiative that Colorado voters approved yesterday, must be signed into law within 30 days by Gov. John Hickenlooper, who has indicated he will do so. At that point people 21 or older will no longer be arrested or prosecuted under state law for possessing up to an ounce, growing up to six plants, or transferring up to an ounce "without remuneration" to other people who are at least 21. moreSo what will the Justice Department do? Legal sales are going to cut into the feds territory and corporations and bankers profits. If this becomes an opportunity for the feds, they will need to control the process right on up to the Supreme Court, set a strong precedent, tear out another part of the Constitution, toss it away and declare victory over that pesky part called states rights. Emboldened, what might be next?
Obama could come right out and say they won't interfere. That could be to further pacify the left ..."hey, look there, he's doing something sane" ...so there won't be much of a protest over all the killing and stealing to come. Throw us a little pursuit of happiness while taking away other rights?
This marijuana issue may not be much in the big scheme of things but for right now there's a possibility for some fireworks. 'Bongs bursting in air' so to speak. A skirmish in the war against us. One that could lead to bigger battles that we could also win.
