The latest Hemp / Medical Marijuana Industry News
To the corporate investors: if you're concerned about your money, I feel bad for you, honestly. It's the first time I've ever seen Corporate America ever lift a finger for the legalization movement, and I hate to see you "punished" for trying to do good thing, even if it was motivated by self-interest.
If you feel bad because, you lost, remember: those of us in our fifties have been watching these initiatives go down in flames since we were in high school. We never thought they would win; it was a message that America was not united behind the Drug War. The doomed initiates let everyone know we were calling bullshit. But it was still a kick in the gut to see them lose so badly. "What is wrong with people?" I used to wonder. So, look at it this way: you've passed the hazing!
But if you are concerned about the people, mostly black, in Ohio, who will continue to be oppressed, arrested, violated,and killed in Ohio as a result of your loss then I encourage you to spend more big money on legalization efforts nationally. Because get real: it's a moral issue, that's what really matters. I hope you will show some love for the victims of the war on drugs, now that you feel the pain just a tiny bit. At least you aren't going to jail (right?)
