Another fine example of the Democratic party at work.
"Even Democratic governors presiding over legalization are not wearing “Bong Hits for Jesus” T-shirts. When Washington voters voted on legalization in 2012, Jay Inslee was running for governor and unsuccessfully opposed it. Colorado’s John Hickenlooper came out against the Colorado initiative, which also passed. Neither has gotten giddy about the idea since then.
But it’s hard for Democrats to justify treating mere possession as a crime, if only because that policy has so many corrosive effects they should care about. It squanders revenue that could be used for more useful government programs. It causes blacks to be arrested four times more often than whites, even though they smoke weed at roughly the same rate.
It encourages police to stop and frisk — a practice that in New York City, a federal judge ruled last year, led to violations of the Constitution and unjustified racial profiling.
Democratic politicians could be making the case for change at a time when the public is increasingly receptive to a new policy. Instead, they are clinging blindly to the status quo. They undoubtedly are smarter than the average rodent. But even rats know enough to leave a sinking ship."
Let alone the rest of the legal implications they glossed over along the way, like interstate transportation, the Federal mail system, and DUIs on the interstates. We’ll have to conceded Denver to the pot heads they can’t go no-where else with the pot. :shrug:
You would think they would be more worried about Americas Drug Habit and the pipe-line to Central American for the cartels and the rest of their vice that follows, like murder, prostitution and exploitation of children.
