Just look at the above posts though. There is no getting through to some right wingers. They are all about liberty and freedom, but only for the freedoms they care about. Meanwhile, they seem to be just fine with Purdue Pharmy making Billions off hooking half the US on oxy, but not alright with cannabis.

Why is there no conservative platform that also wants to legalize cannabis? I don't even use the stuff but I am not a brainwashed conservitard.

IMO the uninformed individual sees a marijuana user as a stupid lazy free-loader unable to contribute to society. That is slowly changing. My experience tells me that the medicinal value of topical treatments made with marijuana work much better than harsh drug store products. The psychotropic strains of THC I can take or leave, it's not addictive. There is scientific evidence of psychosis in males that smoke or ingest psychotropic strains of THC. I live in a conservative State that has seen an alcohol related traffic fatality everyday since November 2000, 17 YEARS!. In States that have medical marijuana, card carriers cannot legally purchase a firearm as marijuana is Federally illegal. However, who do you think more likely to cause a traffic accident or commit homicide, a drunk or a stoner?

The opioid epidemic is a sad irony in that after the invasion of Afghanistan heroin production has dramatically increased in this country. I've been told that marijuana is bad because it's illegal, alcohol is okay because it's legal, and my doctor prescribed these painkillers so it's acceptable. Brainwashed, I think so.

Tell these same people that liquor and beer will be ended and they will freak out. No one wants to look at how bad Prohibition was all around. They let history repeat itself for profit.

Personally against both, changing one dependency for another to fix something that isnt broken is a solution to nothing.

As soon as you take up the mantel of prohibition of alcohol first, then I might bother to listen to you.
