‘Tis the Season to Be JOLLY, As Cannabis Connoisseurs Crash Cali Christmas

Frankincense and muir are SO 2,000 years ago, guys.

The widespread legalization of the cannabis plant seems absolutely inevitable for Americans at this point

With both Canada already legalizing the plant, and Mexico looking to follow soon after, there is really no point to leaving the United States back in the 20th century on the issue.  The issue of enforcement of these laws will become so intrinsically absurd in North America that police will have no choice but to abandon the idea altogether.

And let’s not forget that over half of the states within our union already have some form of legal, medicinal, or decriminalized marijuana – further compounding the issues of travel and enforcement.

So, it would venture that, as the novelty of legal weed continues to grow, cannabis could become a major economic force for our nation...particularly around the holidays when consumer spending is at its most ferocious.

73-year-old Judy gave the gift of pot to herself, unafraid to vape and smoke inside the lounge at the Magnolia dispensary in Oakland.

She said she has been smoking marijuana since the 1960s, and thought the perfect way to relax on Christmas Eve was to buy some marijuana.

“I just learned about this place a year ago,” Judy said. “I’m doing great now.”

And Judy wasn’t the only one…not by a long shot.

Just like her, dozens of customers have been lining up and packing into Bay Area cannabis dispensaries to buy holiday gifts including gummies, chocolates, cartridges and flowers.

“From the moment we were open at 9 o’clock we had a line,” Magnolia assistant general manager Kysa Butler said. “We’ve been knocking the lines out quickly but they’ve been steady, too.”

Pot presents are pretty popular as many visited for the first time to get gifts. Christopher and his dog Frankie were picking up some edibles and said they make the perfect stocking stuffers.

“It’s definitely unique,” Christopher said. “It just feels like you’re having a snack and then later you want more snacks!”

As I’ve mentioned before; you don’t have to be a fan of using marijuana to be a fan of legalizing marijuana.  The economic power of the prolific plant alone is enough to garner some cheerleaders from even the most sheltered of circles.

Washington Post Writer Says Journalists Need To Persuade Citizens To Support Trump Impeachment

Published

on

As the day and time draws near for the House of Representatives to vote on articles of impeachment, which are being drafted now, against President Trump, much of what the public thinks about this whole situation hasn’t changed all that much since before the public hearings began. Which is precisely why Washington Post columnist Margaret Sullivan is calling on journalists to try and find better ways to change hearts and minds on the issue and persuade Americans to get on board with booting the president. Here’s more from TheBlaze: “Despite the hardened positions, some members of the public are still uncertain,” Sullivan writes. “Some are persuadable, and yes, it matters. Maybe, just maybe, it’s the job of American journalism in this moment to get serious about trying to reach these citizens.” Sullivan notably does not take an overt position regarding whether people need to be persuaded for or against impeachment. The closest she comes to that is when she writes, “We do live in a country that abides by laws and a Constitution, and nobody ought to be above them.” “And far too often, those [television news] broadcasts fall prey to a false equivalency: This side said this, and this side said that, and we don’t want to make anyone mad, so we’ve got to cut to commercial now,” Sullivan writes. Sullivan speaks against “epistemological nihilism,” a term coined by New York Times columnist Michelle Goldberg to describe the “long-term Republican strategy” of saying that there are no set facts or truth, something stated by House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.) during Wednesday’s hearing. So what, exactly, does Sullivan purpose to help win folks over? How about a “movie trailer” kind of approach which takes big chunks of the impeachment narrative and condenses it into a “targeted, well-informed…

Barack & Michelle Obama Purchase Home for Nearly $12 Million on Almost 30 Acres of Land

You’d be smiling too if you were a multi-millionaire…

Working in the public sector is not supposed to make people rich. For example, Barack and Michelle Obama were certainly not extremely well-off before Barry became president. But thanks to all the book deals and Netflix deals and this and this and that, the Obamas now live quite a comfortable lifestyle thanks largely to Barack’s time serving the American people. Ain’t that something? You can cripple a nation for nearly a decade, trash her, disparage her at every turn, and still wind up with millions beyond your wildest dreams!? God bless, America. From Daily Wire: The former President and First Lady received the keys to their new mega-home which occupies 29 acres of beachfront property. […] The house was originally listed for $14,850,000 but TMZ reports the Obamas managed to obtain a huge discount and secured the 6,900sq ft home for $11.75 million. PHOTOS: Most first lady’s don’t remain as active as Michelle after leaving the White House. The reason is simple: nobody cares what they have to say. Predictably, Obama doesn’t understand that. She appears to desperately need the attention. Check out the clip below where Michelle goes on NBC’s “Tonight Show” and mocks First Lady Melania Trump for bringing her a gift on Donald Trump’s inauguration day… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEkMp6J0YIM#action=share Of course, Michelle gifted Laura Bush on Barack’s inauguration day. Did she forget about that? Just attacking Melania to be cool and edgy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Vw7Mx21A0#action=share During an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, Obama admitted she was at first skeptical of Barack. The reason? Because white people liked him. Roberts: “You– you weren’t overly impressed in the beginning?” Michelle: “I– I wasn’t, you know? I have my suspicions when a bunch of white folks fawn on over a black man ’cause I sorta think, ‘Okay, he can talk straight so they think…
