I wonder how many of Trump's tweets are while stoned.

The religious right is against it and right now, the party is still beholden to the religious right.

I see what you are saying now. Agreed.

Legalize freedom.

So, yes, Republicans should do it. Most Republicans have already shown they have no scruples when voting for Trump, so why would the anti-drug ones be any different?
The "Pro-Prison for profit " is not for it. That is the problem, money in politics > the will of the people. (Both parties, btw).

Weed heads won't remember which day election day is. They only know 420.

Everyone wants to legislate morality.

It's just that everyone has a different definition of what's "moral".

Liberals don't get a pass on attempting to control the lives of others.

I laugh at the nonsense that "demographics" makes one vote a certain way.

Federally legalize weed, before the election. Itís a pro-liberty move. Grows the economy. Eliminates crime. Gets more government revenue without new taxes on those who donít enjoy it.

I think this would be a huge shot in the arm and win over a whole heap of moderate liberals.
Trump said he isnít opposed to having it legal himself.
