Again, this is about changing the law. In the end, a president doesn't matter AT ALL if you have enough votes. The President controls the degree of enforcement, the focus of enforcement, the structure of enforcement and simply administrates the laws of the country as passed by Congress.
We have to win Congress. Period.
This is why primaries are so important for Representatives and Senators. SOOOOOOOOOOOOO important. The Primary. Fuk the general election. If you get two friendly marijuana candidates, Republican and Democrat, running for the same seat, it doesn't matter who wins! See? This is why I preach the primaries so hard. Democrats, vote in democrats in the Primary that are marijuana friendly; Republicans, vote in republicans who are marijuana friendly in the Primary.
This is how we win. Get it?
Michigan Democrats voted for Bernie Sanders in the primary. It wasn't our fault. We picked the right marijuana democrat in the primary.
Michigan Republicans voted for Donald Trump in the primary. Not that republicans even had one single marijuana friendly candidate on the ballot in Michigan. Rand Paul had dropped out long before.
So Republicans, start running marijuana friendly candidates and winning primaries with them. They definitely exist. I mean just over 1/3rd of general "republicans" are marijuana friendlyish, but only 10% of elected republicans or LESS(mostly less) are marijuana friendly. So get to work republicans. For democrats, we have just over 90% support(soft support, these are spineless jellyfish democrats) for medical marijuana from elected democrats, but only about 30% support for legalization/decriminalization of marijuana. We have work to do.
So, quit focusing on Trump. He is incompetent and we all know it. This is about who actually runs the government. That will be Mike Pence,, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and the Roberts Supreme Court.
Mike Pence HATES marijuana.
Mitch McConnell hates marijuana.
Paul Ryan dislikes marijuana.
John Roberts supports the drug war and invasions of the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 10th amendments.
69 of the nations 99 State legislatures are controlled by Republicans. Remember the percentage of elected republicans who support marijuana?
So,... with all that going for us,... how ya'll think this is going to play out??
Trump doesn't matter, everything else matters.
