Trump’s Homeland Security pick says legal marijuana makes it harder to fight the War on Drugs (He is wrong and “The War On Drugs” should be ended anyway)


About the only thing good that seems to have come out of the Obama years is that the states started to nullify federal cannabis laws. Seriously as I look back, about the only thing, and Obama really fought the legalization efforts.

In the United States, land of the free, one should be able to light up a joint in peace. Per our Constitution it is clearly a state issue. We are not France which is a unitary state. We are THESE United States. And if some states decide to legalize pot that is their right under the Constitution and the 10th Amendment. Do we want to adhere to the Constitution or what? Was all that TEA Party stuff bullshit? It wasn’t for me.

Don’t Tread On America. Don’t Tread On Anyone.

Kelly thinks states legalizing marijuana in the U.S. has sent mixed messages to other countries where we’re still fighting the drug war.

…President-elect Trump has said individual states should be able to decide whether or not to allow medicinal and recreational marijuana.

We will not forget your statement on marijuana President-Elect Trump. Many many people who supported you won’t.
