Rocky Mountain High

by lizard

The danger posed to our society by marijuana has been dealt another decisive blow. After this Flathead Valley landlord feels the hard fist of justice, others will think twice about renting space to the dark, criminal underbelly of Montana.

Thankfully, not everyone in this country is dedicated to stomping this societal scourge from existence. Two states—Colorado and Washington—have the opportunity to perform some legislative alchemy, transforming current criminals who use cannabis into law-abiding adults acting in accordance with state law. Of course that last part is the kicker, because no matter what the states do, the Feds still have the power to swoop in and seize everything.

How fiercely is the federal government willing to fight the building momentum to end cannabis prohibition?

What started as a propaganda campaign exploiting racial prejudices to cover for more economic reasons has dragged on for the better part of a century, justifying big federal expenditures and feeding the growing prison industry. It’s insane.

One thing we can probably bet on is the federal government taking over-zealous measures to control the uncontrollable recreational use of marijuana. Like, banning cardholders from buying guns.

Maybe the saner side of the 2nd amendment crusade and those who support ending cannabis prohibition can find common ground?

Whether or not I may be a little high right now is like totally immaterial. Sobriety is for Mitt Romney.
