There’s a bill that’s up in smoke, and we are talking about marijuana smoke. There’s a bill before us now. What’s going to happen? A whole bunch of other states, and of course everyone knows California and Washington State, have done it. And there is also a small group of other states falling into line here.
They’re going to pass this legislation, and I’m going to tell you why it is going to happen. Because the government can tax it, they can make some money on it.
Do they really care about you getting high? If they can tax it, they do. So that’s what you have to understand about this: The reason the government wants to get involved is it can make money off this.
Do they really want you smoking marijuana? Only if you vote for a Democrat, or was that a Republican?
Never miss a local story.
So do you really want to legalize this? That’s a question that’s before voters now. Stay tuned. Where is your representative voting?
