Majority Leader Calls for Marijuana Legalization within One Year

Could 2021 be the year that ushers in the “green gold rush”?

The more we examine the locales that have legalized marijuana here in the United States, the more we like the results that we are seeing.

You don’t have to be a cannabis user to be excited about the idea of legalizing the cash crop.  In fact, a great many of our elected officials who don’t partake have looked at the evidence, and discovered that legal weed is not only a cash crop of unmatched potency, but that allowing marijuana to be consumed without legal repercussions has decreased instances of opioid dependence in places like Colorado and beyond.

Now, during the week of the unofficial “weed holiday” of April 20th, House Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has made a bold demand.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday reiterated his call to legalize marijuana at the federal level, saying he hopes to see an end to the drug’s prohibition by next year’s 4/20.

“Hopefully, the next time this unofficial holiday, 4/20, rolls around, our country will have made progress in addressing the massive overcriminalization of marijuana in a meaningful and comprehensive way,” Schumer said on the floor of the upper chamber.

And this isn’t a partisan issue – not in the least.  Ask any libertarian how they feel about the prohibition of marijuana and you’re likely to get an earful of research and rhetoric.

President Joe Biden is notoriously unenthused about the idea of legalizing pot, however, and even drew criticism earlier in his first term by terminating White House staffers who admitted to even past marijuana use.

Over half of the states in the nation already allow for some version of decriminalized cannabis.

Biden’s Rambling Train Story was Filled with False Statements

When Joe Biden spoke at an Amtrak event, he delivered a rambling story about his travels was filled with lies. And the media ignored it.

Last week, when Joe Biden an appearance at the 50-year anniversary of Amtrak, he delivered a rambling story about his travels on the rails that was filled with lies. And the media ignored it. Biden, of course, is famous as “Amtrak Joe” for using the rail line to travel from his home in Delaware to get to Washington D.C. over the many, many, many decades he has been a useless Democrat politician. So, it was a natural to have him show up to help the wasteful, expensive rail service celebrate 50 years of profligate spending of tax dollars. During the event, Biden launched into a rambling, confused, tale about his escapades on Amtrak that turned out to be filled with lies, mistruths, and fake claims. Now, if Trump had delivered such a mess of a speech filled with lies it would have been “fact checked” for weeks and would have led every single news cast for months. But here it is, nearly a week since the speech was delivered and few news outlets have bothered with it. In any case, many of the claims that Biden made were simply not true. And these weren’t just muffed facts. They were lies about his personal experiences. https://youtu.be/d_GGqKnRvp8 Per the Daily Mail: President Joe Biden’s strange anecdote about reaching 1.5 million miles on Amtrak has come under scrutiny after key inconsistencies emerged that make it impossible to have occurred as he told it. On Friday, delivering a speech in Philadelphia commemorating the 50th anniversary of Amtrak, Biden launched into the tale of a certain conductor congratulating him on reaching the milestone as he traveled to visit his sick mother. Biden said the incident occurred in his ‘fourth or fifth year as vice president’, or around 2014-2015, at which time the conductor he named…

California Bar’s Side Hustle: Fake COVID Vaccination Cards

Police were able to buy several of the phony cards last month.

As we begin to enter into whatever this new “normalcy” will be in the coming weeks, there are concerns among some that unvaccinated Americans could soon be treated like second-class citizens in their own country. This has already been a bit of an issue in certain industries, with airlines pushing hard to establish a coronavirus vaccine passport system, and several major league sports venues having declared that they will segregate the vaccinated and unvaccinated fans who attend their games. This has now spurred a strange side hustle for one California bar. The owner of a San Joaquin County bar was arrested this week for allegedly selling fake COVID-19 vaccination cards. Investigators say the operation ran for weeks out of the Old Corner Saloon in Clements, which has a population of 941. The local sheriff’s office got a tip that fake vaccine cards were being manufactured and sold out of the bar, complete with laminations. The investigation was fairly cut and dry. Investigators with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control then took over. “Undercover agents with our Special Operations Unit were able to purchase multiple cards in April,” said Luke Blehm, deputy division chief at the Alcoholic Beverage Control. “As a result, we also observed several sales of fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination cards to other patrons,” Blehm said. The owner of the bar was selling the cards for only $20.
