Thread: Why the most pro-marijuana Congress ever won’t deal with weed

  1. #1

    Thumbs down Why the most pro-marijuana Congress ever won’t deal with weed

    Two-thirds of Americans support legalization, but legislation seems to be going nowhere fast on Capitol Hill.

    After all, it takes a lot of time and effort to go from a standing start to a fully worked-out system for anti-competitive cronyism, regulation and revenue-generation.

    But it will happen ...

    I guess the marijuana lobby doesn't have enough money to pay off congress I think that is the only thing that gets laws passed or resended.

    Its as simple as: This victory isn't meant to be won yet. No-body really cares about marijuana, and while it is valuable in that it carries great costs to target (tyranny, prison industrial complex etc) a far greater amount of money would be had by taxing it (since the frictional aspects of the extant tyranny and pic would no longer diminish the pie).

    The only reason they are not touching the issue is because they (legislative, judicial, nor executive) haven't been told to deal with it yet (by themme, yeah?). Likely, in my opinion, a victory saved for the next golden one--perhaps will be grouped in a bill "dealing" with the second amendment. An eminently cheap victory, a progressive headline that will be bruited by all the usual suspects, "_______, finally got it done." An easily had bonafide for our next ruler.

    Phooey.

    I remember when Obama first got elected people were going around saying weed would be legal in all 50 states.

    I guess I'm getting old.... do people shoot up THC, now?
    If the stampman tells you to kiss his ass, shall he get away with it and live? Don't let your courage cool, or a few bullies scare you. We've nothing to fear but slavery. Love your liberty, and fight for it like men who know its value. Once lost it will never, never be regained.

    No, you heat up a quartz (glass) bowl (banger) really hot, then you let it cool down to the correct temperature, then you put a small amount of that stuff on there using a dab tool, then it vaporizes and goes through a small "water bong" called a rig.

    It's a bit healthier than smoking all of the flowers.

    It happened sometime after they Made America Great Again. You see, I grew a bit weary from all the winning.

    Remember the number one rule of libertarianism: Bad things don't just happen; bad things require dark and insidious forces to make them happen.

    A bit of history: there once was a federal marijuana tax, enacted in 1937. The real reason for the act may have been economic protectionism (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marihuana_Tax_Act_of_1937), but it soon became a tool in the criminalization of pot. The tax was held to be unconstitutional in Leary v. United States, 395 U.S. 6 (1969) -- yes, it involved "turn on, tune in, drop out" Timothy Leary -- on the grounds that the law's requirement that a payer of the tax register with the government and admit to be a transferee of pot violated the self-incrimination clause of the 5th Amendment.

    The tax was repealed in 1970, but if pot were ever decriminalized by Congress it's a pretty good bet it'd be taxed, just like liquor and cigatettes.
    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."
