The Politics of Cannabis
The Cannabis issue in politics is bi-partisan. Many cannabis activists make the mistake of blaming “Republicans” and often say, vote “Democrats” but that is short-sighted and inaccurate. The real problem is not Republican vs Democrats, it’s actually “The People” vs “Special Interests”. Special Interests have politicians on both sides of the isle paid off to keep cannabis illegal. In addition, Republican issues that have been paramount to the cannabis lifestyle are “States Rights” and “Privacy”. Surprisingly, it was the ultra conservative Supreme Court Justice, Antonin Scalia that protected illegal cannabis growers from warrantless searches of private property by way of “Thermal Imaging” and “Dog Sniffing”. Both of these conservative decisions where “MASSIVE” for the cannabis community and where instrumental in allowing the cannabis community to thrive again. Prior to those decisions there was an era of severe, and heavy handed law enforcement targeting cannabis users and growers specifically with military ops such as “OPERATION GREEN MERCHANT“
SPECIAL INTERESTS AGAINST CANNABIS

Note: the above list of anti-cannabis crusaders are also some of the most corrupt politicians to ever walk the earth.
OBAMA vs TRUMP
Trump has far more promise to support the legalization of Cannabis during his presidential term then Obama ever could for one simple reason. Special Interest donors. Obama’s donors were a mirror image of same special interests that controlled decisions by both the Clinton and Bush Dynasties. The writing was on the wall long before Obama even got elected. Trump on the other hand, despite unprecedented media propaganda, was mostly self funded. This is how Trump gets away with saying and doing anything he wants with little repercussion. It’s also why he can support legalization without repercussion, unlike even his evil keebler elf, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.
Embarrassing attempts by Obama to explain away any form of cannabis legalization.
The #1 issue Obama faced in public and from the WhiteHouse.gov petitions during his 8 year presidency, was the legalization of cannabis. Legalization of Cannabis was literally the #1 question he faced, especially early on during his presidency. All he ever did was give bullshit answers to why people that supported him couldn’t have something they really wanted and as patients, desperately needed. Obama consumed cannabis as a teenager and young adult but gives the biggest crock of shit excuses that can only serve to appease his special interests. At the end of the day, Obama had 8 years to fix this global crisis at the top of human importance. His lack of action helped spur the national opiate crisis we are currently under. At the very least Obama could have pushed for the de-scheduling of cannabis for the sake of humanity. The hypocrisy should come as no surprise coming from a guy who consumed cannabis but had poor stoner etiquette. elbowing his way out of place in smoke circles. I don’t know about you but having someone come from no where to grab the hit that is being handed to you, then hot boxing multiple hits, is extremely annoying, rude and disrespectful. Not the type of selfish, arrogance I prefer to burn with.
Make America Great Again!
It’s true! Until cannabis is re-scheduled and finally legalized, America sucks! Will Trump finally be the president to sign a Federal legalization bill Medically or Recreationally? It’s looking much more promising then any president I’ve seen in my lifetime. Of course at the time of this writing the jury is still out. Check out the videos below and you decide.
