    Connecticut becomes 18th U.S. state to legalize recreational marijuana

    June 22, 2021

    Connecticut on Tuesday joined 17 other U.S. states in legalizing adult recreational use of marijuana as Governor Ned Lamont signed a bill that he said would also help heal economic scars left by the war on drugs.

    The marijuana measure, which takes effect on July 1, would automatically erase many criminal convictions and would set up a regulatory structure that would direct opportunities and revenue toward communities hard-hit by its prohibition.

    “For decades, the war on cannabis caused injustices and created disparities while doing little to protect public health and safety,” Lamont said in a statement.

    Parts of the measure largely mirror a legalization bill signed by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo in March, which required that largely non-white communities that bore the brunt of drug enforcement efforts get a share of marijuana sales licenses and a share of the tax money it generates.

    Remember – the federal government doesn't give a flip about states legalizing weed, and is eager to destroy your life if you lie about marijuana use on ATF Form 4473.

    Missouri Just passed legislation to prevent that Specifically.

    According to information on the Missouri State Senate’s website, the law declares invalid all federal laws that “infringe on the right to bear arms under the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and Article I, Section 23 of the Missouri Constitution.” Some of the laws listed as being declared invalid include “certain taxes, certain registration and tracking laws, certain prohibitions on the possession, ownership, use, or transfer of a specific type of firearm, and confiscation orders as provided in the act.”
    The law also states that it's the duty of the courts and law enforcement agencies “to protect the rights of law-abiding citizens to keep and bear arms” and prohibits state and local employees in Missouri from enforcing laws invalidated by the act, though state employees may accept aid from federal officials in an effort to enforce Missouri gun laws
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Did not know that, thank you, sir.
    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.
