You lost me there. Why would a union oppose legalization?


Police unions.   FOP.

"Pharmaceutical companies that make billions off painkillers and police unions are two big heavy hitters in the fight against marijuana legalization. They throw their monetary support behind groups that fight legislation that would legalize pot — even medical marijuana — and lobby Congress... local police departments have become dependent on federal funding from the war on drugs, which includes marijuana. Police unions have also lobbied for harsher penalties for marijuana-related crimes."

This really should have it’s own topic as this is common sense. 

The OP was about the the entitlement mentality of Sandra Fluke, that whiny Georgetown law school student who couldn’t keep her pants on.

Common sense is the most uncommon thing in the world!

Spread across millions of people in the country - leading to almost 1 million abortions a year on average - don't care if she is a whiny little rich-B...if we can keep her and the other million from getting pregnant and then having an abortion, that is a good thing.  And we can.  Easily and cheaply.  About 6 times cheaper than what we do now.


Which leads me to the local State Clown Show - in particular, one in east Tulsa named Nathan Dahm, State Senator.  He has led the charge in introducing frivolous bills in the state Senate.  He is part of the problem that has led to $300 + million in cuts to public education.  Would love to know how he feels about this Colorado thing - and why hasn't he introduced a bill to do this here?

Instead he is part of the problem - as are the majority of the Republicans in the state legislature - that gave every other department huge budget cuts.  While gutting the state's financial position.  While taking their administrative budget from $9 million to about $17 million for new computers!!  More than 3 years worth of what could have financed the reduction in abortions effort.  Because they are 'special'.  And above the rest of us.
