Marijuana Approval is A Win For Everyone

Marijuana this fall

This November vote. Don’t vote for any major candidates.Vote for legal marijuana. American marijuana laws are a joke. The two party candidates haven’t addressed this issue. Proving that they are scared to mention this issue.

Example

Voting pro-marijuana this election helps America. Think about that for a second. How many ballot initiatives can say the same? Many ballot initiatives help a few people. For example $15 minimum wage. Increasing minimum wage only helps workers. Voting for marijuana this fall helps everyone.

To support my argument I will use a real example. I’m going to use Arkansas to explain my stance.This November, Arkansas residents are voting on three different things. All three options involve medical marijuana. The first option could legalize it. The second option could allow home cultivation. The third option would only allow purchasing it.

EMPLOYMENT

My three options affect key people. Aka qualified patients. Patients that won’t be the only beneficiaries. The plant has the ability to treat multiple ailments. This ability will put skilled workers back to work. The creation and operation of medical marijuana dispensaries will create multiple new jobs.

Arkansas MMJ patients will benefit smoking it. This will enhance their health. The plant can treat multiple ailments at once. Which will put skilled workers back to work.  I will also require the construction of multiple dispensaries. Creating new jobs.

I just painted a harmonious world. All of my occupants are benefiting from legal MMJ.  Imagine how similar laws could affect the whole plant. recreational marijuana would have an even bigger impact. Many people opposed both of my ideas. They view my world negatively.

View

People that oppose marijuana legalization are wrong. Not because they disagree with people. They are wrong because they don’t see the big picture. They close their eyes and picture the following. They picture a city with a crumbling infrastructure. A crumbling city occupied by millions of workers. Workers that are lazy.

In 2012 WA and Colorado legalized recreational marijuana. In 2014 Colorado residents made it officially available. Soon afters adults 21 and older began purchasing it. They also began possessing it in public. Nothing changed in Colorado after the new trend began. The state’s  infrastructure didn’t begin falling apart. Residents continued to be productive. WA experienced the exact same results. Oregon and Alaska also have the same experience. Washington DC does as well but does it count ?

Visiting these states is a start. Someone could deny what they’re seeing. Changing their mind is possible. It would take years to change everyone’s mind. Which is why creating an option is a better idea.

Decide

People should be able to have choices. Using marijuana shouldn’t be required. It should be a choice Your local Home Depot sells various plants. Purchasing a plant isn’t required. But because they are legal someone else can buy them.

You don’t have to vote for marijuana this fall. But you should choose to vote. Not because others are voting yes.  Vote for it because everyone  will benefit it. Don’t vote if it looks ugly.  Meaning if it looks like the infamous Minnesota option. If it looks like the old Ohio option.

Interview with the Marijuana Policy Project and Morgan Fox

Samuel Goldman: For those that don’t know can you please give me a brief history of the Marijuana Policy project ?

Marijuana Policy Project/ Morgan Fox: https://www.mpp.org/about/history/

Samuel Goldman: What sparked your initial interest in marijuana ?

MPP and Morgan: I witnessed the total failure of marijuana prohibition and the collateral consequences it had on otherwise law-abiding citizens.

Samuel Goldman: Your mission statement mentions regulating marijuana like alcohol. How do you envision medical marijuana being regulated ?

MPP and Morgan: Here is our model medical marijuana legislation – https://www.mpp.org/issues/medical-marijuana/model-state-medical-marijuana-bill/

Samuel Goldman: Why is rescheduling marijuana so important ?

MPP and Morgan: Rescheduling will have almost no impact on marijuana policy in practice. Removing marijuana from the CSA schedule and putting it under the purview of an agency like the ATF would dramatically increase state abilities to determine their own marijuana policies and help ensure safe access to recreational consumers and patients. You can read a detailed analysis of this issue by our executive director Rob Kampia here – http://www.huffingtonpost.com/rob-kampia/the-deas-decision-not-to-_b_11573762.html

Samuel Goldman: Are you concerned that the next president will flick the switch on marijuana ?

MPP and Morgan: It is possible, but both candidates have consistently made statements in support of allowing states to determine their own policies and be laboratories of democracy. https://www.mpp.org/2016-presidential-primary-candidates/

Samuel Goldman: What 2016 marijuana policies are you currently involved in ?

MPP and Morgan: While some legislative sessions are already over, MPP is devoting significant resources to ending prohibition in 12 more states by 2019. We’re supporting ballot initiative campaigns to tax and regulate marijuana like alcohol in 2016 in Arizona, California, Maine,  Massachusetts, and Nevada. MPP is also lobbying and building coalitions to regulate marijuana like alcohol in several states that do not have the option of voter initiatives: Delaware, Illinois, Maryland, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Texas, and Vermont. In the states where cannabis has not already been decriminalized — New Hampshire and Texas — we are working to achieve that reform first. MPP is also advocating for medical marijuana-related bills in several other states, including Georgia, Louisiana, NebraskaTexas, and West Virginia.

Samuel Goldman: How can people join your efforts ?

MPP and Morgan: Anyone looking to get involved can go to MPP.org and contact their lawmakers, state and federal, and urge them to support ending marijuana prohibition. https://www.mpp.org/takeaction/contact-legislators/

You can also help our efforts by donating here: https://www.mpp.org/support/donate/

Samuel Goldman: The Minnesota MMJ program is disgusting and unethical. How do you plan on cleaning up the mess ?

MPP and Morgan -I agree that there are problematic aspects of the program, and MPP is working hard to improve patient access and protections. https://www.mpp.org/states/minnesotahow 

Samuel Goldman: How will you prevent future states from implementing the same program ?

MPP and Morgan -You can’t really prevent states from passing such laws, but we consistently work with state lawmakers to ensure that medical marijuana programs are effective.

Where can people find your organization online ?

Healing Hemp Conditioner Review

Fay Farm Healing Hemp Conditioner

Before I tried it: Fay Farm thought of another cannabis product. This is getting out of hand. The conditioner smells better than your favorite conditioner. Simplistic artistic packaging is wrapped around this product beautifully

While I tried it: Water,prescribed shampoo, and the hemp conditionar applied. Time to utilize the power of hemp. This stuff isn’t affected by shower admitted water. That last sentence wasn’t a joke. Shower emitted water doesn’t melt it.

After I tried it:

I am happy because my scalp finally stopped itching, and people began complimenting my hair. You know the typical Fay Farm product benefits.
