    And original right wing way to control blacks, and everyone else. Pot was NEVER a threat. Ever seen an alcoholic suffering? Or fatal drunken fights?
    Never seen two stoned people get into physical altercations, or even speed in a car….much better for society
    All that Nebraskan hemp made paper and rope ect. Remember Howard Hughes? His Monopoly on News papers, and timber holdings? And RKO media? All promoted white fear of black men getting wigged out and assaulting White Women… Great moments in American Conservative business leadership. Happy 4/20!🌴🌴🌴🌴🌞😉

    Anytime an adjective is added to words like justice (social justice) or in this case equity it means it’s a racist idea.

    Who is it that is making the majority of the money in Cannibis? The growers? The Cannabis store owners? Can the store owners in Colorado own multiple Cannabis stores? There is probably enough money to be made by all in the Cannabis industry.

    I seen a guy in court the other day for nothing but weed. They got $350 from him! Now you see why it will never be legal every where.

    I rarely type… but must say, I find this inspiring.

  11. Russ Moreland on May 15, 2022 at 7:47 pm

    Republicans have always prided themselves on being fiscally conservative and responsible, even though a Republican president hasn’t balanced the budget in over 60 years, and their policies often result in massive deficits (George W. did break our economy). The party’s leadership really can’t claim that anymore, as Rick Scott has made clear that he intends to raise taxes on everyone in order to preserve the Trump tax cuts. A tax cut that was pretty much a giveaway exclusively to the the 1%, and much less popular than most tax increases.

    Essentially, during a period of inflation (that they like to regularly point out), the GOP wants to actually increase taxes on the average family by $1,500 a year.

    Question: Can you REALLY call it inflation, when companies are showing record profits?

    Also, the Republicans are the Party of testicular tanning.

    What more could you want in a political Party?

    I would love to try the magic mushrooms or DMT rather just don’t know where to get them, so hard to come by, I heard the mushroom has many health benefits than marijuana.

  24. Black Knight on May 15, 2022 at 8:14 pm
