I think about all the people that have been arrested, gone to jail, and had their lives ruined because they have a criminal record over marijuana. Now, I'm going to tell you some wild sh*t that should be on the front page instead of some ex-porn star talking about how she spanked Donald Trump.
John Boehner, ex-Speaker of the House, who was adamantly against the legalization of marijuana and medical marijuana was probably responsible for passing legislation that incarcerated thousands under federal marijuana laws.
Mr. Boehner has just joined the Board of Acreage Holdings, one of the largest medical marijuana growers in the country, to yield his political connections to lobby for medical marijuana. He states that his attitude towards marijuana has evolved in the last ten to fifteen years. Why don't he tell that to all of the people's whose lives have been ruined by minor marijuana offenses? Is he going to use his political influence and contacts to lobby for the expungement of criminal records and release of people that have been convicted of marijuana crimes?
The messed up thing about this hypocrisy is that he is not the only one who has now invested in the booming anti-opioid solution of marijuana. Mike Gravel, ex-Alaskan Senator, in 2015, was to lead a marijuana company called Kush. This is a blatant slap in the face to us hard working, weed smoking, people that just want to relax because we're tired of people like them living a double standard.
Rich people are making money, hand over fist in Colorado, California, Oregon, Washington State, Washington D.C. and soon to come, Boston which will be legalized in July of this year. These are the same places that had the strictest penalties for a minimum possession of marijuana.
I just wanted to put it out there because so many poor people's lives have been ruined just because they tried to sell a nickel bag to put a little money in their pocket. Now rich people have decided to change the laws so that they can profit from it. Where's the justice? They're all hypocrites!
