Supporters and Bush Beaters
Lawmakers are so confusing today. One minute they oppose marijuana the next minute they are in support of it or at least in letting the states decide. That is kind of a cop out. According to the people they have decided and they are still running into roadblock by our political leaders. This is most absurd. How is at that these individuals are given so much power based on lies.
All they say is what they think you want to hear. There are many prime examples of these people who smoke pot or have admitted to smoking pot. Yet now they oppose this and are considered quite hypocritical. Below are some of their names and quotes also a link to contact these individuals and inquire as to why the deception and lies will be provided as well. Why is it ok for them and not for others? Tell them you are tired of them running our country this way and that they need to listen to the people or be voted out of office.
A Bush Beater Named Bush
One prime example of an individual such as this is Jeb Bush. In a report by Globe Jeb Bush Said "I drank alcohol and I smoked marijuana when I was at Andover," Bush said to the paper. "It was pretty common." Thankfully not everyone in office is just being quiet about Jeb Bush’s past."This is a guy who now admits he smoked marijuana but he wants to put people in jail who do, you would think he'd have a little more understanding, then." Those were the words of Sen. Rand Paul. Digging a little bit deeper into Jeb Bush’s stash bag and old friends are found saying things like: "really got stoned”, "He had a portable stereo with removable speakers. He put on Steppenwolf for me.", "toker." Or Globe quoted many friends saying “With his taste for marijuana and his skill at tennis, straddled the line between jock and freak." Well Mr. Bush keep doing what you’re the best at and beating around the bush. Just not in office.
Jeb is not the only one beating around the bush, there are several other politicians that have changed their viewpoints drastically in regards to decriminalization or legalization. It is a shame to see such behavior surrounding such an important topic from our country’s leaders.
Another Bush Beater
A prime example of another politician that just can’t seem to give a straight answer on the subject is Marco Rubio. When asked in an interview with Fusion he stated the following, “If I tell you that I haven’t, you won’t believe me, And if I tell you that I did, then kids will look up to me and say, ‘Well, I can smoke marijuana because look how he made it. He did all right, so I guess I can do it too.” He also added “The bottom line is that it is a substance that alters your mind. Now when I was 17 and 18 and 16, I made dumb decisions as is. I didn’t need the help of marijuana or alcohol to further that.”
“When I was 17 and 18 and 16”, with an uneducated statement such as this it is easy to see that he isn’t very intelligent and how he could become easily confused at such a simple question as “Have you ever smoked marijuana?”. I mean come on my 5 year old can count to 20 in order. No need to spend any more time on this individual; let’s take a look at some other individuals on the other end of the spectrum.
Who’s Doing It Right
The list of politicians who admit to smoking pot either currently or in the past has grown quite a bit since the famous “When I was in England, I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I didn’t like it. I didn’t inhale and never tried it again.” Quote from Bill Clinton in 1992. Two of the more recent politicians to speak out on this subject are the president of the United States, Barack Obama and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
I Give You the Standpoint of the President of the United States
When our president Barack Obama was asked about his stance on marijuana and legalization he had a few thoughts to share including an admission to smoking pot in his younger years. His statement was “As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” and ended with his actual standpoint by stating “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.” We would like to thank you Mr.Obama for being truthful and looking at this issue with sensible thought.
Upcoming Leadership POTentials and their POT Perspective
With the upcoming presidential election it is important to look at the viewpoints of the running candidates as they will be rather influential in the years to come with this industry. Hillary Clinton has admitted that she has never smoked pot and there is no reason for her to start now. Her viewpoint on legalization is firm and does not beat around the bush. Hillary fully supports the legalization of marijuana for medicinal purposes "for people who are in extreme medical conditions". In regards to her recreational marijuana legalization standpoint well, she said "states are the laboratories of democracy. We have at least two states that are experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is."
Now these are the types of leaders that this country needs, ones that will speak truthfully and look at the cold hard facts. As the comedian Katt Williams said in regards to weed not being a drug “I’ve done the research. It’s just a plant. It just grows like that. And if you just happen to set it on fire there are some effects.” And those effects can help us both medically and economically if reasoning such as this is taken into consideration by our leaders.
