This was 30 years ago, but he wasn’t even selling it, he just had a few marijuana cigarettes on him for a party he was going to
You could say I am an activist, one of millions of people who did what they thought was right despite what the laws said. I assume that no matter how far you go back into human time you will find that governments are cruel and arbitrary. The authorities, be it a business owner or a politician, they set the laws that all the people else must live under. I assume it is the obligation of every human being, regardless of where you are living, to stand up for what you assume in. When it comes to pot, there is nothing wrong with it, nothing bad or evil, and there never has been! The fact that marijuna was ever deemed wrong is itself a cruel and arbitrary law, that hurt a lot of people for no fantastic reason. A guy who goes to my grocery store spent a few years in jail for possession of marijuana. This was 30 years ago, but he wasn’t even selling it, he just had a few marijuana cigarettes on him for a party he was going to. This is a great dude, and because of something as trivial as a misdemeanor amount of marijuana he lost years of his life. I am saying all of this as someone who doesn’t smoke weed, and outside of trying it out in school, I never have smoked it. This isn’t about myself and others getting high, this is about sitting for what’s right, and legalizing cannabis in every state in the nation is what’s right! No matter how you assume about marijuana, vote to support decriminalizing its use!
