Knowing that the legalizers are extremely well funded and organized by a number of different … what I call … “Cartels”, … it’s not surprising that the left-wing media, never mentions the other side (our side) when they put forth one of their bizarre ideas – like legalizing and controlling marijuana, like is done for alcohol … whether by dispensaries or not.
They asked for marijuana to be legalized because of “COMPASSION”, stating it would help those with AIDS and Chronic Wasting Disease, but as soon as the public accepted that it might help, they lobbied to have every calamity justify use of marijuana, …. depression and hang-nails. (Yes; the hang-nail was an intentional stretch, but not far off, …… and depression? It’s usually caused by the user using marijuana.)
What they promise is that if the public is also sold the idea that the government tax marijuana, like alcohol, it would bring in Millions of dollars, even to the point of fixing America’s deficit.
Note that they don’t mention the social costs of using! Those of us who are prohibitionists, because we’ve lost loved ones to drugs (and that includes pot), are more than aware of the additional costs, because we know what drugs do — we read both sides, but the pro-leftist, liberal media doesn’t tell the public; it hides that aspect of the problem under the shell you don’t lift.
The cost users create, is astronomical and they don’t care as long as they get their drug of choice legal, and the media …. Most of us have learned the Media can’t be trusted!
