  1. Even past "légaleezation" the war ain't over just yet.

    1st, find the list of authorized Pest Control Products or whatever coin-term they've used. Next count how many items there are on your particular list.

    Now please considering the individual toxicity effects don't just add up: they multiply – similarily to pills + alcohol for example, euh…

    Years ago in Washington (i502) this translated as a catalog of 200+ PCPs, hence a number of possible interactions impossible to cover even by using a long-term study, 'cause the progression quickly reaches astronomical proportions knowing industrial strawberries already get sprayed with PCPs by the dozen (…) – but we happen to inhale cannabis and as a result the noble molecules don't pass through any filtering organs at all… Which is an agravating factor.

    Then, lets suppose only 3 PCPs are allowed through a plant's whole life cycle starting from seed. In Washington that's 200 x 199 x 198 permutations and adding only 1 more PCP quickly boosts the total amount toward exponential progression, making if physically impossible to "screen" it all in search for problematic/under-evaluated synergy-boosted savvy soups! Pure & simple.

    Briefly put, a PCPs number should be mandatory and always get printed on every single cannabis container while taxation revenues need to be made inversely proportional to that number just because "legal" means mass-experimentation and over-billing/over-taxing is insult enough on top of serving as guinea-pigs.

  2. Cannabis Consumers Are Not Criminals!

    End the systematically failed both state and federal policies of criminalizing consumers of a natural, relatively benign plant, proven to be far safer than perfectly legal, widely accepted alcohol and tobacco.

    End The Federal Prohibition of Cannabis Now!

    Legalize Nationwide! State by state if need be!

    It's time our country wakes up and learns from our history.

    Prohibition does not prevent people from consuming cannabis. The demand will be there always and therefore cannabis will always be served up to the public regardless of cannabis prohibition laws. The alcohol prohibition era criminal organizations and gangsters such as Al Capone of yesteryear are the Pablo Escobar, El Chapo and drug cartels of today.

    The Temperance Movement didn't catch on and last in part because it was a dead horse from the start.

    Prohibition only serves to further fuel the vast wealth and corruption, violence and death attributed to the criminal organizations which flourish under it. By providing cannabis to meet the continual demand at inflated prices. Just like with alcohol, cannabis prohibition doesn't work, makes no sense, and costs the tax payers a fortune yearly.

    Legalization creates jobs, improves the economy and let's us as a nation focus the wasted resources currently used to criminalize citizens over cannabis towards things much more needed and useful.

    This is how freedoms get taken away from The People. First, a small minority doesn't morally approve of cannabis. Tomorrow, it's R-Rated movies, certain books and literature and eventually that minority aspires to make every citizen conform to their personal sense of morality through laws which criminalize everything that they personally don't approve of.

  3. The "War on Cannabis" has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful "War on Drugs" that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

    Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our yearly tax dollars fighting a never ending "War on Cannabis", lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. Especially now, due to Covid-19. It's a no brainer.

    The Prohibition of Cannabis has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records. Especially, if they happen to be of the "wrong" skin color or they happen to be from the "wrong" neighborhood. Which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

    Cannabis is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

    Let's end this hypocrisy now!

    The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less cannabis "crimes" because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

    Cannabis Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

    Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Cannabis Legalization Initiative!

  4. Cannabis consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All-American pastime, alcohol.

    Plain and simple!

    Legalize Nationwide Federally Now!

  5. Some of the enjoyment of smoking weed is lost when it becomes legalized. Once the taboo is removed it just becomes another bad habit. However, Pot should have never been illegal in the first place.
