Again, you missed where I'm coming from. I'm not a Trump supporter. I'm just thinking from what I've seen in the news that it might not turn out as bad as some expect.


I think this will be the case, and he will do as he says and leave it up to the states. I also don't believe that a trump vote was a vote against my country or pot.

To many people think that the world is going to end because Hrc lost the election.

I'm not as optimistic. I think Trump won't make MMJ a priority of his administration. He'll probably leave those decisions up to his appointees. = Jeff Sessions as the new AG. And Jeff Sessions is a major MMJ hater.

I noticed Weed and Weed 2 was on TV again today. Hopefully, it creates more supporters

Nope. And I will do fine. The SC picks will be bad just like the AG pick. It's not a question of 'if'. There's no doubt that conservative judges don't favor marijuana rights. And neither does the new AG. That's two branches of government that don't appreciate cannabis freedom. Just out of one election. Trump is a wildcard. You know what happens when you have a pair and a wild card. It's a very important time in history. Cannabis rights were like two moves away from being solidified forever but it just didn't happen. There's not going to be another chance like we had in most of our lifetimes. If you are a true cannabis advocate then you would have some remorse for an opportunity lost. It's a specific loss you can convey. It's not a henny penny.

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.

I think the public, like it always has in the past, will just resist marijuana prohibition all that much more if Trump cracks down. It will back fire on him if he shows himself to be against safe and effective medicine for the people.

Ah, Trump doesn't matter. He's like that shiny thing the fish looks at when he swallows the hook. Think of him like that class clown that cracked a good one most of the time but really just wasted your time when you were supposed to be focused on important other things. He's a distraction. A big, clown looking, fool, distraction. lol

What do you guys think of pushing for holistic, lifestyle change programs that include cannabis as a part of the program? See, for example, http://greendrinksfo...8TLC/index.html. How could you get educational institutions like community colleges to adopt such programs?

If this article Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Compared Vaccines To The Holocaust—And Now Trump Wants Him To Investigate Their ‘Safety’ is accurate, Trump might just do something positive on medical marijuana. May be Trump don't like Big Pharma and would like to provide the public greater access to alternatives - including medical marijuana.

this article does not give me a lot of confidence.  It sort of implies that Trump will follow his instincts regardless of the facts that have been presented to him
