Tar Heel State Lawmakers Ready to Talk about Ending Pot Prohibition

Around the world, a revolution is slowly fomenting regarding the marijuana plant…and Americans couldn’t be happier.

Around the world, a revolution is slowly fomenting regarding the marijuana plant…and Americans could’t be happier.

You see, as a nation, we failed our people with the “war on drugs”.  Instead of being a battle to end the evils of the black market and powerful narco-terrorists, we simply made the penalties absurdly stiff for the end users.  This is because end users make up 99% of all drug arrests, and often those arrested have zero information about the “big fish” who supply the high.

Of egregious importance in this matter is the issue of marijuana – an herbal plant that has been used as medicine since ancient times, but it currently illegal on the federal level in the United States due to a streak of racism nearly a century ago.

Now, as a majority of states within our nation have already peeled back their marijuana laws, sometimes for recreational use but most often for medical use and “decriminalization” – those who have yet to adjust are falling behind economically and socially.

That’s why lawmaker in the Tar Heel State are taking up the issue late in 2018.

North Carolina State Rep. Kelly Alexander will meet with other lawmakers for the discussion and plans to push for cannabis reform.

“It’s time now for the legislators in North Carolina to catch up with the people,” Alexander told WNCN.

One idea that he is lifting up is a local approach to marijuana legalization. This idea is inspired by the state’s county-by-county approach to alcohol sales.

“North Carolina has an ABC system that pretty much is the model,” Alexander told WNCN. “We have dry counties. We have wet counties. We have portions of counties that may be wet, and the rest of them are dry. All of those are driven by local option decisions. Either by the decisions of local-elected boards, or by votes of the people.”

In a nation such as America, whose agricultural prowess will be heralded for centuries to come, the legalization of marijuana would very likely lead to a new Golden Age of prosperity as our dedicated and talented farmers begin to supply the weed-ready world with green gold.

Beto Seemingly Calls for WAR Over Mueller Report Secrecy

The left just had to find some way to make the idea of transparency seem sensational, didn’t they?

Beto O'Rourke

As the nation patiently awaits the findings of the Special Counsel report, a debate is raging. On both sides of the aisle, we are hearing that transparency is key.  Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General and self-proclaimed “heat shield” for Robert Mueller, has expressed his concerns over tarnishing the reputations of those not accused of a crime. The rest of America seems fairly well convinced, and rightly so, that there should be unfettered access to the report. And while this is undoubtedly a widely felt sentiment, the radical left just had to find a way to make it seem sensational. Cue 2020 presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke: “Republicans and Democrats should do whatever they can to make sure their constituents, the American people, can read that report, form their own judgement, make their own decisions, and that the truth comes out,” O’Rourke said at a campaign stop in South Carolina Friday. O’Rourke warned that America may not see another year if details of Russian interference in the 2016 election included in the Mueller report are not made public, saying, “This is an unprecedented attack on this country and on our democracy, and we are owed the facts. And if we do not receive them, 243 years in, there’s nothing that guarantees us a 244th.” O’Rourke is undoubtedly suggesting that a Civil War or revolution could take place over something that everyone already wants. Not only have a number of democrats parroted the “everyone should get to see everything” line, but they’ve done so in complete agreement with Trump-appointed Attorney General Bill Barr. For Beto to go nuclear in this statement is beyond bizarre, and sounds more like a coaxed soundbite than his true sentiment on the subject.

Mueller Report Findings Expected by Congress Sunday

Monday morning’s water cooler chit chat has already been decided.

Is our long national nightmare actually over?  Well, that depends on who you ask today. For many, the completion of the Mueller report on Friday, without any additional indictments being suggest by the Special Counsel, was a huge win for President Trump.  It meant that there wasn’t evidence sufficient to bring charges against the President…perhaps. We should remember that the DOJ’s longstanding belief was that a sitting President could not be indicted. On the left side of the aisle, however, a tense wait has begun, with the Attorney General expected to hand off a summation of Mueller’s findings to Congress any minute. Attorney General William Barr was expected to release his first summary of Mueller’s findings on Sunday, people familiar with the process said, on what lawmakers anticipated could be a day of reckoning in the two-year probe into President Donald Trump and Russian efforts to elect him. Since receiving the report Friday, Barr has been deciding how much of it Congress and the public will see. Of course, for some democrats, this simply wouldn’t cut it. “I suspect that we’ll find those words of transparency to prove hollow, that in fact they will fight to make sure that Congress doesn’t get this underlying evidence,” Rep. Adam Schiff of California, chairman of the House intelligence committee, said on ABC’s “This Week.” His plan: Ask for information and if that’s denied, “subpoena. If subpoenas are denied, we will haul people before the Congress. And yes, we will prosecute in court as necessary to get this information.” For now, we will just wait and see. We do know one thing for certain:  Monday morning around the water coolor is going to be a happenin’ spot.
