Fewer plants, fewer ounces, and a delay on edibles are all on the table this year.
WOW! They actually are thinking of putting Anslinger-like Prohibitionist Sen Jason Lewis in charge of a “marijuana committee on Beacon Hill”!
What an amazingly bold, destructive and offensive thing to do. But MA Governor Charlie Baker is a Republican. Right now Republicans are acting amazingly bold, destructive, offensive, and against the will of the voters throughout the country, so should we be that surprised?
Governor Charlie Baker and other Prohibitionists like Sen Jason Lewis are our representatives for Trump policies locally, so we should expect no different.
Someone should really tell them though, that these actions will only result in a broken system again, but alas, it is these types of lessons that can only be reached through honest and thoughtful actions. The campaign against cannabis has rarely been honest or very thoughtful of the rights of Americans.
I encourage people who find themselves having a problem with cannabis to do some research on why we call it “marijuana”, and why it was first made illegal. Its a story of racism and ignorance, and if modern politicians can achieve enough support to become President of the United States, for supporting racism and ignorance today, then we should expect them to be motivated cannabis prohibitionists as well.
