    taking the country, as a whole, down in the process.
    the very definition of selfishness. and pettiness.


    we, truly, need to remove the whole of the house and senate and replace them all with adults and rational people. no more fringe idiots from either (extreme) side.
    the president is just a pawn. there to take all the blame for the crap that comes out of both the senate and the house.

    DNC withdraw support for marijuana legalization

    And while we were distracted by bogus Russia-gate bullshit and impeachment based on phone call

    They were giving Trump enhanced spying powers. money for his wall, and 750 billion military budget

    These assholes are worse than Trump because people trusted them...

    They won't represent the will of majority of democratic voters

    That's not something they care about

    it's the same damn reason for both of the 2 big parties
    peeps from neither side are going to unilaterally agree to close out it's 'closest' party in views, values, ...
    it would have to be mutual destruction, must go simultaneously

    still no reason to vote for Biden, imo.


    legalization, but, at what cost.


    look at the bigger picture.


    and don't be fooled by terms like "might" and "may" and "could."
    pure smokescreen to pander to a segment of society.
    personally, I don't trust any prosecutor, former or not, that has put someone in jail for something they 'claim' to "may" want to legalize.

    So they can get back to business as usual

    It really is that easy! Once you buy into one of the other you become part of the problem. The parties keep us divided so we can't get anything done and as long as we keep tolerating that were going nowhere.

    Maybe the biggest irony about Dems providing legalization is that their version like Oregon decided to give 20% of taxes to LEO.
    NOW, they aint even mentioning that little aspect as they say nothing about current situations, like Oregon Dem leadership has. They are agreeing with defunding while shovelling money to the piggies thats called power brokering. Fuck republicans Fuck democrats. Eazy peezy.

    i believe there is enough support for it on the D side, but they did not want to run on it due to the urgency of trying to remove chump. why give the Rs another stick to hit them over the head with? i can see the headlines now - chump on the porch of a church, holding an unopened bible and saying "not only do they hate God, they want to give YOUR CHILDREN the devil weed marihuana..."

    Here's some thoughts for those under my current age of 50:
    Scientists, doctors and politicians knew, before I was born, that cannabis is not a harmful drug. They knew we had food, drinks, air, medicine, etc that is more harmful. Yet, trillions of dollars have been generated with the war on cannabis. They know. They have known, and they don't care. If it goes legal, it will be because they have a plan to control it. All of it. And if they control it, it means they will have to stomp out a resistance they have not been able to for 90 years. They can't kill us all. They are finding it increasingly difficult to hand down 20-life sentences. I just don't see how they can control it, therefore, I can't see how they can legalize it.

    Joe was already a puppet for Big Pharma so his idea to move Cannabis to Schedule Two is no big surprise. We will need a prescription and it will allow them to take away home growing.
    Just in time for all his Pharma buddies to release all their new Patented Canna Medicines.

    I'm am also a moderate centrist which neither party cares about so I am going to sit this one out and hope that someday a new party of moderates from both sides can come together and form a third party and finally start getting something done in this country

    Time will tell.....I've witnessed Sheriffs' turn to med marijuana industries, judges and others that once thought cannabis was "bad", a "gateway drug" only to delve into the business.

    The reason Kamala Harris was a bad presidential candidate is the reason she could be a good vice presidential candidate

    It remains to be seen whether she will push Biden in the same direction, as the former vice president has maintained opposition to ending marijuana prohibition, despite supermajority support among Democrats.

    While Harris, a former attorney general of California, made marijuana reform a major component of her criminal justice platform when she ran in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, she’s been less vocal about the issue since dropping out in December 2019.

    Convincing Biden to come around seems like a steep task in any case. Some advocates suspect that the Democratic National Committee’s platform committee voted against an amendment to add legalization as a 2020 party plank specifically because it’s at odds with the presumptive nominee’s agenda. Biden has drawn the line at decriminalizing marijuana possession, expunging past convictions, modest federal rescheduling, medical cannabis legalization, and letting states set their own policies.

    But it remains the case that Harris is the chief Senate sponsor of the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act — a comprehensive piece of legalization legislation that includes various social equity and restorative justice provisions. Advocates will be watching to see if she continues to advocate for the reform move as she’s on-boarded to the Biden campaign.
