National Marijuana Legalization Bill Hits Congress with HILARIOUS Moniker

Outside of the absurdity of outlawing A PLANT, this bill would allow for new American financial boom rivaled only by the Gold Rush of the 1840’s and ’50’s.

Let’s not beat around the bush, (no pun intended):  Marijuana will be legal in the United States sooner rather than later.

And, as I’ve been determined to explain for some time, you don’t need to enjoy the psychoactive effects of the plant to be excited for legalization.  Not only does the cannabis plant contain some extremely powerful medicinal compounds that have been helping cancer patients, epileptic children, and glaucoma sufferers for decades, there is an enormous economic impact that comes with legalizing wacky tobacc-y.

Just ask Colorado, who legalized the plant for recreational use and then had such a tax surplus that they allowed residents to vote on how to spend it.

Now, with Canada and Mexico going legal, the United States will be the only USMCA nation where drug cartels can still peddle their wares.  This is a terrifying reality that we must face.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill seem to understand all of this, and are introducing legislation that could finally bring the United States into the 21st century world of pot-profits.  Hilariously enough, the bill itself is being introduced under the name “H.R. 420”.

The Government is shutdown and employees are furloughed – but members of Congress are still working on introducing important laws. One of which is the federal legalization of marijuana – also known as House Resolution 420.

In a hat tip to the marijuana culture, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) introduced the resolution on Wednesday, amid the Government shutdown. Of course, by now, you’re probably familiar with 420 – a special number in the marijuana scene.

The Oregon Rep. Blumenaur’s bill is actually titled the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act and would remove cannabis from the federal controlled substances act. Michigan voters passed a similar law in November that legalizes the possession of 2.5 ounces of marijuana outside the home – plus possession of 10 ounces inside a home. Residents can also grow up to 12 plants.

The number “420” has long been associated with recreational use of of the cannabis plant, although its origins are a bit murky.

Perfectly clear, however, is the necessity for such legislation to pass.  Not only would this be an incredible boon to our national economy, it would also push some of the more necessary changes to our private prison system and the life-altering damage it has been causing to non-violent plant-possessing offenders.

Beto’s Bizarre and “Witchy” Rituals are Dumbfounding Democrats

Let’s not overlook the fact that O’Rourke also subjected his family to his esoteric gibberish as well.

Beto O'Rourke

The behavior of Beto O’Rourke would the prime fodder for the writers over at Saturday Night Live, if they were ever inclined to take a shot at a liberal politician. No, the folks over at NBC likely won’t be talking about Beto O’Rourke’s whimsical mysticism, or the fact that he believed that eating magical dirt would give him superpowers. That second bit, while certainly a striking and piercing accusation, is absolutely true. O’Rourke, who came up short in his bid to unseat Sen. Cruz, R-Texas, despite raising $80 million for the Senate push, told the story of his earthy snack in a sprawling 3,000-word profile published by The Washington Post. “In January, Beto hit the road, much as his father had done before him, and drew energy from the people he met, and — on one stop in New Mexico he didn’t write about in his blog — by eating New Mexican dirt said to have regenerative powers,” the profile reads. “He brought some home for the family to eat, too.” This shamanic nonsense comes to us just days after O’Rourke’s sprawling interview in Vanity Fair had the 2020 democratic candidate discussing how politics are his “destiny”, and how he was “born to” run for President. Beto’s latest tirade came at the expense of the electoral college – a system of voting that the democrats are increasingly looking to alter. “I think there’s a lot to that. Because you had an election in 2016 where the loser got 3 million more votes than the victor,” O’Rourke said in a video posted online on Tuesday. “It puts some states out of play altogether, they don’t feel like their votes really count. “If we really want everyone to vote, to give them every reason to vote, we have to make sure their…

Ditching the Electoral College is Popular Among Dems…Here’s Why

If you think this is a good idea, you should speak with folks in Northern California and Upstate New York…

electoral college

Of all of the issues that we expected to see arise during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election, one may easily carry with it the most weight. That idea is the abolishment of the electoral college; the system of voting that our nation has utilized since 1804.  Sure, the process can be a bit tedious and tumultuous at times, but, as the President himself explained, there is a very real purpose for this convolution. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108187855954870272 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108190837257764864 The Commander in Chief makes a great point here, and it’s one that the people of Northern California and Upstate New York can attest to well. You see, in those states, the popular vote is used for a number of ballot initiatives and general public decision making.  In both of those states, the liberal population hubs of The Big Apple and the beaches of Southern California completely overwhelms the rest of the state’s far more rural and conservative population.  This means that, proportionally, a tiny fraction of the state is lording over the greater mass of the state on all matters. To some, it sounds a bit like a King in his castle, looking out amongst the vast expanses of farmland in serfdom. For others, the issue is not just the idea of taking away a well-established, tuned, and tested system for voting, but rather the appearance that this move, combined with other liberal pipe dreams, is all due to their poor sportsmanship at the end of the 2016 contest. President Trump had a tweet for that, too. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1108217768187449344
