It was a clever rejoinder to Conan's post. I don't know poop about investing.

I know a good amount of people that invest in only companies they believe in, etc. sorry for missing the joke.

Sigh.

No need for sorry. It obviously wasn't that cute.

FWIW, I got a good guffaw out of it.

I invested in marijuana once, all my money went up in smoke.


When Oklahoma and Nebraska filed a lawsuit in 2015 against Colorado for legalizing marijuana, Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt wanted to see whether it was a problem before signing on.

He would need to prove that Kansas had suffered harm from Colorado marijuana to have a case.

But law enforcement was reporting fewer – not more – marijuana-related offenses. This was confusing to Schmidt, who said he’d heard from law enforcement that Colorado marijuana was king.

So he invoked a 19th-century law to survey law enforcement agencies. And he received a huge response: 390 law enforcement agencies and district attorneys painted the first large-scale picture of the impact of Colorado’s legalization on Kansas.

With any luck, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt will now be too busy suing Arkansas to further meddle in SQ 788 (Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Legalization Initiative).  If you remember, he re-worded the title of the approved petition at the last minute to make it appear that the initiative wasnt just for medical marijuana, effectively sabotaging its chances of being on the ballot last week.

“The people of Oklahoma have decided that we can no longer afford to fill our prisons with individuals suffering from addiction ... That strategy has been far too costly in dollars and in lives.”

Now what crazy liberal law-and-order-hating pansy said that?

Oh.  Lovers spat with the prison lobbyists?
How are we going to get DNA swabs from people arrested for felonies if you cant make everything a felony?




Marijuana reform went 8 for 9 on the 2016 ballot
Voters in California, Massachusetts and Nevada approved recreational marijuana initiatives Tuesday night, and several other states passed medical marijuana provisions, in what is turning out to be the biggest electoral victory for marijuana reform since 2012, when Colorado and Washington first approved the drug's recreational use.

Potash is okay.  Seed burns can be pretty conspicuous...or so I’m told.

As is pretty much everyone who has followed in his footsteps.

“Those who counted on Donald Trump’s reassurance that marijuana reforms ‘should be a state issue’ will be sorely disappointed.”
As far back as 1986, (Sen. Jeff Sessions) joked that he thought the Ku Klux Klan “was okay until I found out they smoked pot”

Meanwhile, outside the third world:



Pot's legal, so now what?
http://www.southcoasttoday.com/special/20161121/pots-legal-so-now-what

You might notice similarities to their creating something similar to the ABLE Commission in Oklahoma.  At the time, it was heralded as a step towards modernizing liquor laws, but as time progressed, ABLE became the bloated, obsolete fiefdom it is now.

Will other states learn from Oklahoma's mistakes?
