Good conversation with Lynne Lyman of the Drug Policy Alliance on CA's ambitious Prop 64.

pretty interesting about all the licensing stuff.
sounds like they got a good grasp on things.

Spicer hints that feds could step up MJ enforcement.

I think this play would blow up in their faces. Public sentiment and the momentum are clear on this. Stepping all over state-level action could force Congressional Republicans to finally put their voting money where their states'-rights mouths are, which is something I think most would rather not have to go on the record doing.

"States Rights" is code for allowing states to legislate oppression.
It's not a term that applies when the Feds can get away with the oppression.

A true business man would think that move is redonkulus.  Check in with Colorado on how this thing is working.

Except they're all getting paid by booze and pharma to keep reefer madness alive. Truly theatre of the absurd.

You're forgetting the private prison industry that was literally built on prohibition.

Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Waiting 15 months is way too long for the average stoner.

But they'll get the joy of discovering that Canada is legalizing weed probably 4 or 5 times.   :smoke:
