CelebStoner publisher asks why pot activists can’t all “just get along”:
It’s time for all of the marijuana activists and supporters to stop bickering and focus on the big picture. Together, in all our shapes and sizes, colors and religions, political beliefs and ideologies, we’ll eventually achieve the ultimate goal. Then we’ll have a big celebration and everyone will shake hands about a job well done.
Bloom attributes the differences between NORML and the Marijuana Policy Project to stylistic choices. (“MPP is content to do its work behind closed doors, lobbying legislators to initiate bills,” he writes.)
But I submit that the MPP’s backroom dealing is eclipsing NORML’s parties and rallies, because MPP is what George Soros & Co. are paying for.
To be more specific: I believe nationwide marijuana legalization is already a “done deal,” and something akin to Big Tobacco is laying the groundwork for creating a generation of stoners.
It’s a blow to libertarians (think $50 taxes on legal, $250 ounces of pot, rather than being able to grow your own, for less than $15 per ounce), and to the medical medical marijuana. (More about the latter, later.)
