Reefer madness

Posted By on Tue, Apr 17, 2018 at 4:47 PM

Maybe it's because I'm educated, professionally employed or maybe, it's because I've been smoking pot for 40 years...but does anyone else find that the hype building up to the legalization of recreational cannabis equates to a chicken just had its head cut off?

It seems to play into a scene out of Reefer Madness. Any of them, really. Rather than our three governments putting a positive spin on it (economics alone) they are taking a heavy-handed approach to the issue which only incites the ire of the law's opponents (crackpots will be handing out copies of Reefer Madness soon). I've signed up with a compassionate access club which will have competitive or undercut pricing. I'm taking a stand against this poorly-written legislation and supporting our local economy in a different way. —Jimmy Takes A Hit
