|Legality of cannabis in the United States
I think of this now as I observe both the growing acceptance of marijuana (it's the money, honey)
Marijuana is still a federally forbidden substance and yet states from coast to coast (46 of them) have cannabis regulations that skirt those regulations even as Trump dispenses a kind of America-'lite' form of government that is short on policy and long on demagogic bombast, eyewash and 'false facts.' Under the Trump aegis, things have grown less substantive -- thinner somehow, more watered down, more inclined towards self and its environs. Government by Twitter ... who'd of thunk it? Than what universe are Trump's improvements a feel-better improvement?
Government and drugs are for recreational use. Seriousness is relegated to those who can accumulate wealth of one kind or another. Whatever it is, it is for sale ... everything else is for fun, however painful that fun may be. And where there is pain, can drugs be far behind? The blunting of life proceeds, or that's the way it feels to me. Thank goodness for loud kids whose access to the internet, while separational in nature, can assist in the righting of wrongs.
It all seems a bit weird and confusing to this duffer whose health is perhaps his only rightful business.
