It's an End of an Era, before it even began. End of a beautiful dream.
For decades, marijuana advocates have campaigned religiously and passionately for the right to grow and smoke WEED, a harmless/healthy substitute for nicotine. In the past, people have been thrown in jail simply for growing a natural plant or possessing a joint. Gone, supposedly, were the days of federal fascism and "Reefer Madness." But now, in these enlightened times, the insanity of a totalitarian government has returned in full force, as far as pot is concerned!
You see, the government, ALL GOVERNMENTS, aren't good and the last thing they are looking out for is your welfare. They always have and always will be the enemy to the people. They are concerned only in THEIR best interests and never yours. Like the Mafia.
We were given false hope with new laws that have lessened penalties for marijuana possession, many dispensaries appearing in most states and adding greatly to the economy, its MEDICINAL uses getting more and more known and incredible products made from the ancient plant: Everything seemed on beam for a glorious future of growers who will benefit, store owners who will benefit and especially the people: finally, medicinal or recreational pot will be available for low prices since legal growers will be abundant, now that HEMP has been decriminalized.
NOPE. No how, no way! Not gonna happen! Dream's over! The feds have been looking for a way to fuck up weed legalization and they've found it. [They've fucked up every good thing, if you haven't noticed?]. They couldn't stop it otherwise. They couldn't stop the truth from spreading: that hemp relaxes you and heals you. They want you on chemicals and pharmaceuticals that numb you and are very dangerous to your health. Not something natural that only does good, positive, healthy things.
They've illegally raided pot stores in California and demanded they get rid of all their stock because of new regulations, (which will be all stores across the nation). From now on, pot selling is ONLY allowed if you sell OUR POT, from federal growers! How is this not the Mafia at work with the old Protection Racket?
Fucking bullshit! This is an attempt to destroy all growers of pot, from the large corporations who were ready to open floodgates of mass-growing quality herb down to the small-time basement growers who could (they thought) freely sell without fear of reprisals.
What the feds are trying to do and may have done already is destroy all independent marijuana businesses. It's like saying: "Oh, you thought you had a good thing going? Fine. It's our way or the highway: You store owners will only sell OUR WEED and you're going to give us a big cut of the profits."
This is fucked up! THEY are already spreading lies that this Regulation is a "good thing" because the feds will insure quality and safety of the pot.
Bullshit. This is exactly why the only farming is federal farming and also why there are slow-acting, harmful chemicals in every bit of meat, produce and fruit you eat and every drop of bottled water you drink. [boil your water, then use it] The feds will now place chemicals in the natural pot and that will be the only pot that dispensaries are permitted to sell~ Wow.
Don't think so? In the old days, you used to be able to sell your garden vegetables to the small, mom and pop, grocery store on the corner of your small town. That is an illegal act today with feds saying: "No, no, we have to insure quality and inspect sources," while all the while, the fucking feds are spraying their produce for us with chemicals to make you passive, dumb and obedient.
Don't think so? Why, since the 1950s, has the government put FLUORIDE in the water supply? Then the huge toothpaste campaigns through the sixties which lied to you and made you think you were being protected by fluoride. In fact, fluoride wears away your pineal gland in the middle of your forehead, where understanding is located. They don't want that for you. They want you unthinking slaves, the Walking Dead.
They want you to pay more and more for less and less and even things that will eventually kill you. I'm not saying the new, federal, dispensary pot for all stores will have paraquat in it. But eventually it will be harmful.
WHEN THEY GIVE YOU NO CHOICE, LOOK OUT! Something's wrong and that's not what America is about.
Months ago the dispensaries were already 'kicked in the pants,' in a sense. New TAXES came in and all the prices jumped up. Feds just had to grab more profits, so they created new taxes...more fascism. This is "Taxation without Representation" - ever hear of that? We once, long ago, had rights. No more. They were given up ages ago. Now we are only subjects of the British empire and "let us eat cake" and be thankful for the crumbs we're given?
ps: There is only one good thing about this: We will be pushed back to when pot was UNDERGROUND. Coops and networks who want to make a go of their pot businesses will have to sell underground, illegally. Back to where we started. But let's be clear: It will be the private growers who will have the clean, quality pot and not the "regulated," probably chemically-sprayed, crap the government forces us to smoke.
