So?

It competes with big pharma's opioid monopoly so the Corporate President will shut it down.

The Corporate President will disrespect states rights.

Marijuana is a major cash crop for the war on drugs and the prison industrial complex.

It also competes with big pharma and logging industry.

We will fight the federal government on this. And remind them that we the people run this nation. Not them.

"We will fight the federal government on this. And remind them that we the people run this nation. Not them."

That must be why marijuana has been illegal all these years and still is under federal law. Must also explain all the unncessary wars we've fought, tax cuts for rich folks, the lack of a decent healthcare system, etc. I'm thinking we're losing our fight with the government.

.. by voting Republican:

If You Want Bigger Government, Vote Republican

[snip] If we look at federal spending, though, it's easy to see that the myth of the budget-cutting Republican president is just that: a myth. ... On the other hand, the top three worst offenders here are Republicans. As hard as it is to believe, there are still some people who think that Reagan cut the size of government, although Reagan was a big spender and laid the groundwork for the immense national debt we live with today.

The true story: Democratic presidents shrink government; Republican presidents grow it.

[snip] Republicans claim to be against "big government". But it appears to be Democratic presidential administrations that actually deliver smaller government. This can be seen in assessments using readily available data for federal employment, and the year-upon-year change in federal spending.

Facts: Anathema to Republican/conservative "thinking"

$315 million is a big number but an average of $12 a hour sucks in Oregon.

But whatever...nothing wrong with it.

There's no other logical explanation. They KNOW they're peddling BS.

Definitely with the federal government.

But you can still win at the state level.

We legalized here in California and there's no way Donnie patrol will shut it down without a fight.

I'm betting on millions of dollars deposited in their private off shore bank accounts.

They KNOW they're peddling BS.

Absolutely.

They also know their constituents will swallow their load no matter what.
