It was another main(lame)stream media scam!
If it happened, (and that’s a big “if”) …. it wasn’t done according to normal procedures – rules would have been circumvented to get it done and again “if” it was done, … it would have been done for purely propaganda reasons!
Over 100,000 flags are flown over the Capital every year, … and to get that done there is a procedure one must follow!
One of our members took some time today and called the US House Whip’s Office – Cantor’s office and found: this so-called “event”, it would have had to go through Eva Malecki in the U.S. Architect’s Office. The procedure is that a request is submitted to the Clerk of the House, or the Secretary of the Senate – they then send the request to Eva, in the Architect’s office which then ‘makes it happen’ and then gifts the flag to the House Member or Senator who then presents it to those who’ve requested it.
Whether there are “donations” made then, … it’s your guess, but up until then, it’s cost free.
For any non-standard flag to fly, there are also requirements, but we were told that it didn’t happen … except (of course) in the media’s mind’s eye … but then again the druggies who published this information stated it was Representative Jared Polis who requested this take place … so what’s the truth?
In conclusion, and since I wasn’t there to say either way, who knows? Still … one could say that, it’s likely that it didn’t happen, … but, … if it did, the normal rules, regulations and procedures certainly had to have been circumvented ……
So, one could still say that, #1, theoretically, ‘if it did happen, it was still outside of the requirements of accepted regulations, … which of course is nothing new for potheads! And #2, it would have been purely for propaganda purposes … Potheads believe if they keep repeating “hemp is not pot”, long enough … that you’ll believe it.
Why then, do they bother? It’s a joke maybe? … and they think it’s on us?
And as for Representative Polis? He didn’t deny it, so in the future, we’ll be able to look back and see exactly what service he rendered the citizens of Colorado and the nation – he will be seen as one of our legislators who held the door open for those who wanted our youth to have access to substance abuse … and he didn’t have a clue as to the damage he was doing … more ‘unintended consequences?
Surely, no one who has any insight, thinks that the pot of the 60’s, with it’s low level THC is akin to the pot of today!
