Virginia approves blazing-fast timeline to legalize recreational marijuana
Carly Roman, 21 mins ago


Recreational marijuana smokers in Virginia may be about to hit the jackpot this summer.
Senate Bill 1406, which eliminates criminal penalties for simple possession of marijuana by adults and establishes a regulatory structure for the cultivation, manufacture, wholesale, and retail sale of marijuana and marijuana products, was originally set to take effect on Jan. 1, 2024, if approved. Gov. Ralph Northam offered an amendment, moving the timeline up to July 1 of this year, and the change was approved by the Democratic-controlled Virginia General Assembly in a largely party-line vote on Wednesday.


Two Democrats, Sen. Chap Petersen and Del. David Bulova, joined all Republicans in their opposition to the bill, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch. Del. Vivian Watts abstained from voting.

Until they come up with another way to arbitrarily criminalize a large portion of the population, the feds will keep the drug laws in place. The point was never to stomp out drugs, it was to make many people criminals. I'm sure we are all familiar with the Ayn Rand quote as to why that is necessary for an authoritative state.

Not to mention the CIA uses extortion money from cartels around the world to fund off books operations. Drug cartels stay in business because the people that could kill them want them to be in business. There's also no coincidence that our heroin epidemic kicked off about the same time we started warring with the middle east, where heroin is a major cash stream for terrorist organizations. There are fields our soldiers protect and fields that they burn. better believe someone with enough authority is making money off the ones we protect.
