Lux, a well-known DJ for Saint Louis radio station 105.7 The Point, posted the following to her Facebook wall.
“Colorado [legalized marijuana for adult recreational use]…should we? Mayor Slay wants to know….whatever your stance take 5 min to complete the poll!”
Lux, the short answer to your question is the following; emphatically and unequivocally, fuck yes!
As an individual who uses marijuana both recreationally and medicinally, I desire, for my cohorts, my opponents, and myself, the freedom to choose cannabis and its endocannabinoid system friendly phytocannabinoid-constituents as safer and healthier recreational and medicinal substances without risk of suffering the inane and destructive legal consequences brought about by the unconstitutional and inhuman moralist policies of cannabis prohibition.
As an advocate for full, global legalization of cannabis, I strive to change minds by educating publically and privately on the harms of social, legal, and governmental policies of cannabis prohibition, which deprive citizens of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness over what is arguably the most medically, industrially, agriculturally, and, yes, recreationally beneficial plant known to humanity.
As a human being, I am appalled at seeing this nation and others around the world persist in pursuing what collectively comprise the failed and fruitless policies of cannabis prohibition fought through the War on Drugs, which do nothing but waste time, resources, and, most importantly, human lives; all to maintain a sense of political, moral superiority.
Furthermore, these moralists who invented, implemented, and maintain these contrived, counterproductive social and governmental policies are destroying family after family; tearing apart poor and minority communities; crippling our systems of governance; eating away at our inalienable, enumerated and unenumerated civil and human rights; and hurting humans and humanity by preventing the full utilization of this most versatile and valuable plant.
Consequently, humanity languishes in this sadistic, moralistic-fool’s paradise. This tragedy of errors prevents things like the full utilization of a plant that can help heal the sick and prevent illness; nutritiously feed people, families, and communities around the world; provide materials for low-cost, high-efficiency housing and homes; the promotion of economic, agricultural, industrial, and social growth; and the utilization of cost effective, environmentally-friendly agricultural and industrial products, techniques, and methods.
Honestly, enough is enough! It is time to end the games, this prohibition destroys lives and kills people, all over a plant that heals people and has the potential to save lives.
