Taxing Pot in California????? – February 24, 2009
People, I’m flabbergasted! Some of the nuttiest stuff in the country comes from California, particularly from San Francisco – Nancy Pelosi country. But this takes the cake.
“An assemblyman from San Francisco announced legislation Monday to do just that: make California the first state in the nation to tax and regulate recreational marijuana in the same manner as alcohol.
Buoyed by the widely held belief that cannabis is California’s biggest cash crop, Assemblyman Tom Ammiano contends it is time to reap some state revenue from that harvest while putting a damper on drug use by teens, cutting police costs and even helping Mother Nature.”
Get out the straight jacket and hunt down Tom Ammiano! How in the world does this cut down on teen use of pot and cut police costs? How does this help Mother Nature? I’m beginning to think ole’ Tom is using this stuff himself and has stupified his brain. When you hear people decrying the innocence of marijuana use and the harmlessness of the drug, you are probably listening to someone who is hooked on it and wants it legalized so they are no longer in jeopardy of going to jail if they get caught. MaryJane defenders are almost always users themselves. They can no longer recognize the danger to themselves and our society by the prolonged use of this weed.
While our brave men and women in the military have been in Afghanistan fighting and dying and trying to stamp out the marijuana fields that support terrorists, especially the Taliban, California has made marijuana their cash crop, just like Afghanistan!!! Who in their right mind believes this is a good idea? It is still a federal offense to grow, transport, buy, sell or use marijuana! Yet California flaunts their total involvement with the illegal drug.
We’re fighting drug cartels on the Arizona and Texas borders and California is growing the stuff! It’s time for California to secede and Arnold to leave the Republican Party and join the Democrats who love any kind of bad behavior. They can Party Gras all year round and the rest of us who are sane and decent can stop supporting their bankrupt conditon – morally and financially. Looks like California is becoming a third-world country, but I don’t want the Democrat strong-hold to take the rest of us down with it.
People in our border states are being killed in the fight against illegal drugs. Our soldiers are being killed in Afghanistan in the fight against illegal drugs, and what is California doing? HELLO!
P.S. Just a little note about the 10 foot plants in the photo:
“We tried burning them with white phosphorus — it didn’t work. We tried burning them with diesel — it didn’t work. The plants are so full of water right now … that we simply couldn’t burn them,” he said.
Even successful incineration had its drawbacks.
“A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action,” Hillier said dryly.”
With California facing water shortages and rationing the use of water, who really thinks it’s a good idea to allow marijuana fields to soak up the water and deny it to the people?
California’s dry future
