“Any politician who thinks they can alienate over two-thirds of the voting public and win, is kidding themselves,” Stephani Scruggs Bowen told me. She’s the wife of Michael Bowen, who uses medical marijuana to treat his epilepsy and was one of the plaintiffs who sued to overturn the legislature’s ban on smokable marijuana. Stephani Bowen served as Trump’s Florida director of field operations in 2016. “Rick Scott has been a great governor, but if he wants to beat Bill Nelson, he needs to obey the Constitution … and stop trying to get in between a doctor and his or her patients.”

“I think what it means is how far along this issue has evolved just over the last couple of years,” said Ben Pollara, a Democratic strategist who has worked for Nelson on his last two campaigns and served as campaign manager for the medical marijuana initiative since 2014. “It’s gotten to a point where somebody on the moderate-conservative end of the Democratic spectrum like Bill Nelson is not just coming out for medical marijuana but getting involved in a political fight and saying people ought to be able to smoke this stuff. It is no longer an issue with political downside; it’s an issue with almost entirely political upside.”

Amazing! With only their entire constituency supporting it, Democrats may have finally realized that legal weed should be on their political platform! What will these titans of intelligence conclude next? Water is wet?

Don’t overestimate these morons. They were just attacking Dana Rohrabacher for being Cannabis friendly.

What we need is an American, Free Market Capitalist approach to Cannabis, sadly we aren’t likely to get that from Republicans either. They don’t often support Free Market, Capitalist approach to much of anything, even though they blow a lot of hot air about it.

Kinda like when they claim to support our Veterans.

I think most drugs were very legal at times when US had real capitalism, at the end of 19th century. So, it is possible that liberals actually prohibited drugs, together with supporting a more intrusive and controlling government.



Edit: many more interesting pictures of legal drugs sold:

President Slime & Asshole General Sessions let Republican states allow the use of an illegal Schedule 1 drug.
They will let drug addiction destroy great,patriotic Republican citizens in great Republican states.
I can give Sessions a list of trash Republican Trumpers that are addicted to an illegal drug, I can take pictures of Republicans'
illegal Killer Weed huge grows. I know these local haters of America & can produce their addresses.
Why haven't Republicans in Oregon stopped this slap in the face to the laws of America & locked up & confiscated all the assets of Rep/Con drug addict Republican criminals.
