Re: “What Are They Smoking?

The reason the legalization of marijuana is gaining any momentum at all in certain circles has less to do with the change in public attitudes than the potential for taxes and monetization by government entities and powerful corporations.

If you need any examples of how terribly wrong this can go look no further than efforts to tax and monetize the Internet and social media. As soon as the powers to be figure out how to make the "Interweb" pay out, you can forget about streaming anything other than infomercials.

As for legalizing marijuana, same thing, once they figure out how to tax it and the corporations are growing it look for "Big Fats" and "Quarter-bags with seeds" with more carcinogens and added ingredients than fast foods.

Seriously, from Standing Rock to "Lalopalooza" -- worst segue ever, even with the rock and roll headline.
