Ending Marijuana Prohibition Medical Marijuana Policy

Kentucky Senator Pushes For Marijuana Legalization

Kentucky Senator Perry Clark has been pushing for marijuana reform in Kentucky for awhile now. I did a quick search of the articles I’ve posted over the years, and Perry Clark’s name came up quite a bit. Senator Clark pushed for medical marijuana in 2013, and again in 2014. Those efforts didn’t gain enough traction to pass, but they definitely continued the conversation about marijuana reform in Kentucky. This year Senator Clark is pushing for full legalization via a bill (Cannabis Freedom Act) that he introduced late last week. Below are highlights of the bill, via the State-Journal:

The “Cannabis Freedom Act” would end the prohibition on marijuana cultivation, possession and selling the substance in regulatory framework similar to Colorado.

Quick takeaways on the act include: it would only be available to residents 21 and over;

• residents could possess up to 1 ounce on their person;

•cultivate up to 5 plants;

• store an excess of cultivated cannabis for personal use where it was cultivated or transfer 1 ounce to another person 21 or older without remuneration.

• persons under 21 could possess cannabis if it was recommended by a licensed physician;

• no smoking cannabis in public places

I can’t help but think of the late great Gatewood Galbraith whenever I hear of marijuana reform efforts in Kentucky. Gatewood fought for a very long time to reform Kentucky’s marijuana laws, and it makes me smile to see Senator Clark continue that effort. If you live in Kentucky, make sure to contact your elected officials and let them know that you support this bill. The winds of change are picking up, and I’m confident that reform will come to Kentucky sooner than later.

    Gatewood Galbraith, that’s a name I haven’t heard in a while. He and Willy Nelson were good friends and I believe they converted an old station wagon to run off of hemp seed fuel then drove it all around trying to promote cleaner fuel alternatives which led to the development of bio-fuel. Pioneers!!!

    • Willy nelson is a greedy establishment musician and likely a member of the illuminati and a socialist! Willy the stoner for prohibition as I enjoy labeling him told Ohioans to vote NO in 2015 to legalize Marijuana because of economic bullshit. These hollywood whores and the Marijuana Policy Project which is a haven of them are profiteering off of marijuana legalization and making shitty half assed legalizations in States to control the market and cripple home grow. High Times=CIA/DEA

      And no, those dolts you mindlessly worship aren’t pioneers in fuel! The future of transportation is electronic propulsion! All those so called ‘ufos’ people around the world have seen since the days of World War Two and the ‘foo fighters’ are Top Secret air craft which are totally electrically propelled and have nuclear engines. The science is called “electro-gravitics”. There are no aliens and if there are they have NEVER visited this planet. William Milton Cooper told us the truth about these things and now I Terry Dale Free am telling everyone that he was totally correct for a provable fact. Everything Cooper ever said about the ufos being totally Human and the ‘alien abductions’ actually being government black Mind Control operations is totally true. The alien hype in the media is a deception and socialist liars have been harping about alien bullshit for generations! the aliens are a hoax psyOp by the government to cover up secret technology and secret Operations of all sorts and often highly immoral like the Nazis did at Auschwitz sort of ‘operations’. I myself have filmed such craft in flight, been stalked by them monthly through the years 2012 to 2013 after I attended the Bilderberg meeting protest in Chantilly, Virginia in 2012, and I’ve seen them flying and hovering around major military installations. I live next to Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio and I’ve seen these craft flying over the base here on multiple occasions. William Cooper also filmed these electric disk craft flying over Area 51 in Nevada in a documentary called Operation Redlight.

        Hey pro legal- chill the fuck out man! just having a memory. Smoke a joint, take a poop and eat some fritloops. You’ll feel better.

        • Chill out? My message is important. The issues I’ve brought up are VERY important! Nobody here but me is discussing ANY of it! WHY? it’s not like I’m making this shit up! You cant just google anything I’ve brought up such as how shady High Times is quite easily. Same with all the other things I’ve stated.

          I think you are just butt-hurt and taking my reply it too emotionally rather than rationally. You’ve addressed nothing and said nothing of value in your last reply. You’ve been proven wrong about your stoner hero Willy Nelson! Why do all you fools out there fawn over illuminati socialist scum profiteering celebrities and lying politicians? why do you foolishly trust High Times or The Weed Blog or ANY media? Why are you foolishly poo pooing what I’ve had to say and have yourself had nothing to say? oh, wait I just answered my own question! FOOLS!

          Chill out he says! LOL! I’m just fine. Apparently YOU are the one who needs to CHILL with your asinine replies to my prudent posts. You like all the other nit wits and Trolls, “Johnny Green”, and the spooks on this sites comments have all totally defaulted on everything, said nothing real, and are merely resorting to lowly attacks on me personally.

          You tell me to “chill the fuck out” as if we should all be calm and at peace with the obvious FACT that there is something SERIOUSLY wrong with this movement, its ‘media’ outlets, and the people who are championed as its ‘heroes’ by outlets like DEA supporting High Times and The Weed Blog promoting the communist Yippie Steve DeAngelo who also is against personal usage of Weed and is only for ‘medicinal’ despite ALL Marijuana usage being inherently medicinal and that being a misnomer and divisive to our movement. That is total bullshit! The fact the The Weed Blog, High Times, MPP, Snoop Dogg the murdering crip cocaine dealer piece of shit, and MANY hollywood illuminati whores ect ect are all seem to be clearly colluding together is not something to be chill about. THEY are a major reason why Ohio failed to legalize Marijuana in 2015 under ResponsibleOhio as they were all against it either openly or silently ignoring it favoring MPP initiatives. DeAngelo, Willy Nelson, and many other persons and ‘media’ outlets including The Weed Blog have acted in this way against Marijuana legalization in Ohio in 2015 and are still doing the same now going into 2016!
          Why should we be “chill” about all of that?!?!??????

          • Closet Warrior

            You use this forum for your own you tube agenda, which apparently is to hear yourself speak because all you say is not truth, you belittle everyone and whine about poor little ohio who lost out on legalization because they couldn’t get the voters to make up their minds so the illuminati and everyone else but you had something to do w/it! You’re a fucking piece of work!!! You mention the bible a lot, you call almost everyone a fool who doesn’t adhere to your bullshit Frederic!!! Know what it says about calling others fools when he himself not knowing that he be the mightiest fool of them all.Please leave me alone and get a better hobby. Seriously.

          • My “agenda”!?! LOL! PLEASE! what crap! anyone who goes and actually watches my videos will clearly see I’m quite informed and am totally PRO-Cannabis. My “agenda” is Truth, Liberty, Justice, and Peace for everyone as much as possible and that includes Cannabis Rights! It’s not my fault that dummies like you hate reading, critical thinking, and you lazy and intellectually atrophied brain just can’t handle such a syllable intensive workout! ALL of the people on here and anywhere who attack me or anyone else claiming they are wrong somehow, and yet themselves totally fail to provide ANY reasoning that doesn’t amount to a infants tantrum and refuse to have honor and be identified. All such persons are shady and full of crap. This is not my opinion but is the definition of debate and proper argumentation which you have totally defaulted on and opted to mount personal attacks against me in vain because you are stupid, a liar, or a stupid liar.

            YOU are the piece of work AND piece of crap! “Closet” non-Warrior is a better name for you but at least you self labeled partially correctly. You are a coward hiding in the metaphorical closet and behind computer driven anonymity. You are a coward attacking me claiming I’m wrong while you whine like a baby because I’ve laid it all out quite clearly and you and all the other fools around here hating on me for no reason have totally DEFAULTED to answer to ANYTHING!!!!! Many of you are likely not who you seem to be and NONE of you will identify yourselves!!!! Oh, but we should listen to you? HA! You claim I’m wrong but how so, oh wait I forgot you are just a blowhard full of shit LIAR!! THAT is why you can’t refute me with any sort of VALID LOGICAL FACTUAL argumentation! YOU LOSE mr anonymous jerk just like all your anonymous loser friends have til now! HAHAHA! Oh just you fuckers wait! I got something real special coming for you asses! I’ve only begun…. :D
            Oh, ya and I’m sooo full of crap and nobody Wikes wittle ol me! LOL! bullshit! My YouTube channel has done nothing but go up in ratings ever since inception and I get plenty of likes and positive comments on YouTube and on TheWeedBlog and other establishment mouthpiece ‘media’ outlets.

            I can tell you know very little of the Bible by your words and I KNOW you don’t know jack about my beliefs because I’ve not revealed that though many FOOLS assume much! It is true that I’ve referenced the Bible but do not think you know me as very few truly do.

            The Bible contrary to your ignorant bullshit and pathetic attempts to discredit me does not explicitly address “calling others [names]” but it does speak on this topic. Contrary to you attempting to make me hypocrite I am not. you see, for something to be slanderous or Libelous it must be FALSE or not an opinion! I’ve only stated my opinions and provable facts to date. If I were to call you a inbred fuckwit then a spade is still a spade if that is what you truly are or how you seem to be or act while refusing to refute my assertion.

            Understand, the Bible says many things but truth is for them that seek it and you are FAR from it I assure you. I can tell you are either ignorant of the Bible even by what little you’ve raved or a liar. All of you that think the God of the Bible cannot be terrible and ferocious have not read the Old Testament! Yet God is righteous! Even in the New Testament Yeshua, falsely known as “Jesus”, claims not to bring “Peace but a Sword” saying “My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight”. The wicked are judged and destroyed even in this life before our eyes by their karma. Yeshua openly insulted the corrupt Jewish priesthood of his day in public calling them “sons of the Devil”, “Vipers”, “whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men’s bones, and of all uncleanness”. When Yeshua saw the corruption in the temple profiteering selling animals for sacrifice and letting the Money Changers and Usurers set up shop he flew into a rage beating them with a whip and flipping the tables in the temple!

            The voters in Ohio DID make up their minds and genuinely voted down Marijuana legalization in 2015 wanting ‘Open Markets’. The illuminati ARE real and ARE involved in a conspiracy against Marijuana legalization and all drugs legalization/decriminalization because THEY are the true heart and soul of the international drug trade and all Organized Crime. I PROVE these connections on my channel and there is MUCH more evidence of the same.
            Many talk about the illuminati one way or another but very few actually understand except the illuminati themselves and the intelligent persistent few such as Myself and William Milton Cooper who have pierced their veils and discerned EVERYTHING! There truly is not a conspiracy and everything is on public record to be found and proven i assure you because I have done so in regards to many things over the years! Why do you think I so confidently label Snoop Dogg as an inititate of the illuminati and a member of Organized Crime!? because he clearly is so by “Preponderance of the Evidence” and I believe even absolutely provably so. That is why he is now called “snoop LION” because he converted to Rasta, an illuminati sect, which is racist and claim they are the ‘true Israel’ or “true Judah” and the Lion is the symbol of Judah and the Davidic line and the Freemasons believe the exact same racist bullshit except it is White and not Black supremacist. Hell, they wouldn’t DARE to sue me because most of everything is provalbe and because of the legal process of discovery where I could expose MUCH more with legal permissions. Suge Knight explicitly said that Snoop Dogg was a government informant! even a ‘loss’ in court for me will become a victory when I publish the court transcripts online! I do not fear such things and the facts are on MY side on these issues I assure you. For example, it is a FACT that the guy mr anonymous Johnny Green admires so much named Steve DeAngelo writer of “The Cannabis Manifesto” is himself a former affiliate of the Youth International Party of the Communist Yippies in America. funny, I recall a famous book called the Communist MANIFESTO hmmmm Steve has a “Manifesto” too and a background in COMMUNIST political groups!!! It is a strong possiblility that Steve DeAngelo is an agent of the American Intelligence agencies infiltrating anti-American Leftist political groups and the Pro-Cannabis movement! WAKE UP!!!! HIGH TIMES=CIA/DEA Mouthpiece!!!!!!!!!!!!
            DeAngelo only supported medical and not personal usage of Marijuana which is total hypocritical bullshit and hindering our movements forward progress!! And you FOOLS follow and fawn over this political subversive to liberty!?! what the FUCK!? Just like all you FOOLS constantly fawn over these sleezy profittering celebrities and illuminati scum like Snoop Dogg the illuminaiti coke selling crip and likely murderer! Why do you people praise such men? They are NOT the friends of Cannabis! All the celebrity whores support lousy MPP initiatives and told Ohioans to vote NO on Marijuana legalization in 2015 because of economic bullshit when if they were truly Pro-Cannabis and not lying illuminati government run profiteering whores they would have been supporting Ohio legalization in 2015 and REFORM in 2016 for Open Markets and Open Home Grow. But instead the screw us all over, support prohibition, and support lousy oppressive MPP initiatives that cripple Home Grow and make big corporate profits just like guys like Snoop Dogg and Willy Nelson the stoner for prohibition want to force people into their lousy businesses.

            The success of the secret society networks is due to secrecy, deception, Mind Control of the initiates, religious brainwashing, narcissism, and the general stupidity, ignorance, apathy, and cowardice of the general populations of Earth which their entire structure of lies is founded upon. I can’t wait til one of you fools try to call me out and claim the illuminati don’t exist or some other similarly ignorant bullshit because I’m going to PROVE you wrong and technically already have. Most of you secret society members online and agents of the intelligence agencies don’t seem to like to get into THAT conversations and it is because they are initiates themselves and don’t want to get backed into a corner where it is obvious they are lying.

          • “…you whine about poor little ohio who lost out on legalization”
            Everyone NOTE how this person is attacking and belittling the loss of Marijuana legalization in Ohio 2015 just to attack me personally and they don’t mind belittling the fact that we are still suffering in prohibitions and that all the medical patients are still suffering and dying while people get in trouble for Weed! LOW.

            Leave YOU alone ClosetWarrior?! thats funny because it was YOU who started this thread with a insulting reply to me telling me to ‘chill out’ and belittling everything I said and claiming I’m wrong while you yourself have made no factual points nor refuted anything I’ve said but have totally defaulted and resorted to personal attacks. Seriously?
            But its OK because I LOVE the fact that all you assholes are attacking me and simultaneously attacking anyone who agrees with me, is interesting in actually pursuing such things and figuring them out logically, and you insult the intelligence of EVERYONE here for expecting them to mindlessly believe your raving unfounded bullshit and personal attacks against me when we all should objectively be pursuing the facts and truth of all things while being Pro-Cannabis.

          • Looks like my initial reply to Closet Warrior has been “flagged” again by some anonymous coward. It’s been over an hour now since then and my comment is still missing and has for now been effectively censored. Looks like the LIARS and anonymous jerks here just can’t take the heat! Who knows what is really going on! We have no accountability on TheWeedBlog for mr anonymous Johnny Green and Jay Smoker so its possible I’m being intentionally censored and either way I’m being intentionally censored by someone by being flagged and delaying my comments for ridiculous if not indefinite periods of time. I’m on the posting “White List” on TheWeedBlog but if I wasn’t just like many of you are not then being flagged as such would likely be the end of my or your comment. This is just one aspect of how Trolls, government Spooks, the illuminati, lying moderators, and morons can mess up our communication network. Ask yourselves why TheWeedBlog and many other sites have such lousy forums/comments control? It is not a coincidence. They could fix the problem on this site but refuse to and lied to me about wanting to and they continue to do nothing to fix this issue or identify themselves even though there is no reason at all not to that isn’t shady or ridiculous at best.

          • My “agenda”!?! LOL! PLEASE! what crap! anyone who goes

  • saynotohypocrisy

    Thanks to the good Senator for his efforts. The hypocrisy of legislators using alcohol and ordering their fellow citizens not to use cannabis is breathtaking. Liberty and justice for all, yeah, sure, they should at least be honest and change the pledge of allegiance to say liberty and justice for us and our buddies.

    • You are always harping on the alcohol and that’s fine but don’t forget the caffeine, nicotine, pharmaceuticals that kill and warp minds, and TV!
      And I don’t really appreciate your bashing of our pledge of allegiance or republican constitutional government as we are the only at liberty country in the world where we can even have discussions like this or have initiatives to legalize Weed! Our government is not perfect because men are not and many are wicked and attracted to government office because they are ruthless sociopaths and greedy control freaks. If you want to be ‘honest’ then blame the mindless sheep composing the majority of the worlds population who by their daily willful ignorance, apathy, and cowardice allow evil men to run amok and oppress us all. They are fools who refuse to study history or the law and so it is that since they opt to live like stupid children and vegetate before TV and games all day when they are not at their rat race slave job making scumbags rich that they MUST be controlled and basically enslaved by the government because such animalistic imbeciles require and even demand such control.
      THAT is why we are struggling to legalize Marijuana when it NEVER should have been a problem in the first place!

        “And I don’t really appreciate your bashing of our pledge of allegiance or republican constitutional government as we are the only at liberty country in the world where we can even have discussions like this, or have initiatives to legalize Weed!”

        But I’m not bashing the pledge of allegiance, I’m bashing the indisputable failure to live up to it, and the in your face flaunting of that failure by refusing to even discuss it. Liberty and justice for all is my guiding star (even when I don’t know exactly how to apply it).

        And we’re not the only country where this can be discussed. Freedom of the press is much more widely respected in the world than that.

        Citizen initiatives is one strength of our democracy, and I treasure it, even when I don’t like the results. But it’s more of a direct democracy thing than a republic thing, it’s a significant modification of the original republic ideal.

        I could give you my views on the origin of the Constitution, but that’s straying too far from the mission of this site. I’ll try to comment on my harping on alcohol later.

        • “indisputable” you say! HA! watch me dispute you!
          WHO has failed anyways YOU? not me! I’m a loyal American patriot! Corrupt politicians and mindless cattle do not represent America nor imply its failure but rather THEIR failure to be moral, courageous, intelligent, and at liberty. The government is full of traitors and is being run by secret society networks collectively known as the illuminati and this country was founded by them in order to take over the planet! Only the sheep don’t realize World Government is already here in de-facto form and our Constitution itself is a blue print for such government in republican form. Sadly the United Nations is socialist and totalitarian just like the illuminati are.

          And ya other places have relative freedom of speech as us but MORE places do not! Furthermore virtually all of Europe is a Socialist run regime without real rights which is why they are all disarmed or may as well be. Unarmed citizenry are automatically serfs.

          True that such direct democracy is not so Republican and there is irony in this but I do not see it as hypocrisy nor a real threat to liberty. I see it as a balance against the legislatures and courts when the People have Constitutional amendments and jury trials. It is another balance of the powers of government into 3 parts.

          and please DO harp on about alcohol! alcohol sucks and I don’t care for it really!
          I’ll say this much SayNo, at least you seem like you think and have a brain to back up your opinions! I’m glad for that. I hope we get closer to the truth and what is good for everyone in all things here.

          • saynotohypocrisy

            Who has failed?

            The government (mainly Presidents, Governors, Congress + state legislators, and the courts, the courts most spectacularly and shamefully on medicinal marijuana) has failed to live up to what it is solemnly pledged to in its official pledge of allegiance. The people who actively support alcohol supremacism have one level of responsible for this crap, those who condone it, never lifting a finger to stop it, have a lesser level of responsibility. Many professional groups have been derelict and should be singled out. The public health community including rehab counselors, doctors, judges, lawyers, police, social workers, even insurance companies and teachers all have direct professional knowledge of how much more dangerous alcohol is than marijuana, but you never hear a peep out of any of them. The ACLU and other civil liberties groups haven’t really been there for us the way they should be.

            As far as harping on alcohol, it’s because alcohol has such privileged status in this country, and that it’s a psychoactive drug. As far as I know tobacco isn’t considered a psychoactive drug, and tobacco users have been marginalized in society while alcohol is at the center of much of our social life. And while tobacco kills a lot more people than alcohol, they are overwhelmingly the users themselves, alcohol kills and devastates a lot more innocent people lives. I do rant about big pharma’s profit driven agenda and about the violence glorifying mass media, but neither offers quite the same direct display of gall as the alcohol gang ordering their fellow citizens not to use cannabis. The response should be something like looking them in the face like they are crazy, and firmly asking them if they are being serious.

  • darthhillbilly

    I hate that “The Cannabis Freedom Act” will most likely gain little traction. Last year Greg Stumbo advocated medical marijuana, so…being me…I sent Greg Stumbo a letter encouraging him to support medicinal law again in 2016. I also nicely informed him that a CBD law that helps no one is a joke. I sent Hal “I’m a drug warrior” Rogers an e-mail as well…of course I received a token response saying how he doesn’t want to reverse the “progress” made in the last decade…What a frigging joke. Mitch McConnell & Hal Rogers need to be voted out of office…I do my part…everyone else needs to vote/call/write their reps to change policy.

    • Denny

      Actually, McConnell was instrumental in getting hemp production legalized for KY.

      • darthhillbilly

        Yes, that is correct. When I emailed his office the response was that “I don’t want to add to the drug problems of our region”. Hemp only…so there you go.

        • familyguy

          McConnell is another lazy republican. One big reason they don’t want legalization is because it takes a lot of WORK to develop the regulatory frame work for legalization. Cannabis has never been a drug problem and in states that have legalized it has eased the use of addictive substances such as opiates. WORK is defined as a nasty four letter word among Republicans.

    • exacly, Vote literally and by your everyday actions especially where your dollars go! Write the lying pigs to make political pressure but write more to friends of a like mind! We NEED good folk online to be pro-cannabis and keep the lying trolls and secret police at bay. and CALL your local pal and get your mind right!

  • Jane Peters

    Get it on the ballot.

    • darthhillbilly

      Kentucky does not allow voter referendum…you have to call, write, or otherwise engage the representatives…then there is still no guarantee. Kentucky overwhelmingly supports Medical Marijuana…close to 80%…recreational…well…not so much. Regardless the draconian drug laws need to change. No one is sent to jail for simple possession, we are just forced to go to NA and see people with real drug problems.

      • Marcus Worrell

        That is crazy. 80 percent of a population is for medical marijuana and it is still illegal… so much for democracy…

  • skoallio

    Kentucky only has like 8% support. Its an extremely racist backwards state.

    • Guest

      I’m sure support is much higher than 8%, more like 40-45% I would assume considering national support is between 51-58% depending on the poll.

      • I bet you are correct ‘guest’! marijuana is the biggest cash crop in kentucky and those hills are packed full of Weed in the deep country where there are no police, outsiders, or easy pickins for dope chopper pigs.
        I’ve predicted that 2017 will be the first year a US state passes a form of substantial Marijuana legalization and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was either Kentucky or Vermont! Lets hope both!

        • Marcus Worrell

          /I’ve predicted that 2017 will be the first year a US state passes a form of substantial Marijuana legalization/

          Huh? What about Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska?

          • Allow me to clarify as I see why you are confused.
            I mean that a US State Legislature will passes a substantial form of Marijuana legalization in 2017!
            The others you mention and the States trying now are all citizen initiated Constitutional amendments not the politicians passing a law.

            PS. Guy Fawks is a terrorist Jesuit piece of crap who tried to blow up the British parliment for the sake of his dark masters at the Roman Catholic Papal ‘church’ and he nowadays is a symbol of international socialism! Socialism=Slavery! He does NOT represent liberty nor what America is all about whatsoever!

        • familyguy

          Vermont most likely. I just don’t foresee a state in the bible belt being first at anything progressive. They always vote republican no matter how terrible their policies are.

          • Ohio is a swing State and about 50/50 red/blue really. Many of us such as myself are not affiliated with Republicans or Democrats. I believe in liberty and our constitutions. People here largely vote republican based upon a few issues such as Gun Rights which republicans are more supportive of.
            Both parties are treasonous trash through and through!
            I disagree with your false analogy about the Bible relating so much to that sort of progress. For one thing Ohio already has made the sort of progress you speak of by being the first State to vote on Personal and Medicinal at the same time AND it would have passed if it had ‘free markets’. Ohio will likely legalize Marijuana in 2016 under the new FreeMarketOhio plan.
            I have video on my channel explaining why the Holy Bible is Pro-Cannabis and that modern day churchianity and their hordes of mindless sheep and lying FreeMason sheep herding pastors are NOT real representatives of the Bible or its teachings at all.
            That’s not to say the Bible is not a major influence regardless of the false churches claim to being bible followers.
            Most people I meet in Ohio are very secular and non-religious or only mildly religious and not bigoted against Marijuana. Most people know virtually nothing about the Bible or its meaning. The Bible is one of the most Esoteric documents on the face of the planet. The Mysteries are for the wise not fools!

          • familyguy

            Ohioans are weak minded people that believe some made up definitions of monopoly that was handed to them by the republicans, now you may need to wait 20 years before legalization takes place. Free market my ass.

          • Weak minded people? bullshit! you’re a raving jerk though. Ohio is one of the best states in the nation to live in. Don’t get me wrong everywhere has plenty of fools but you blanket-insult all Ohioans and therefore myself and I think you are full of crap.

            Issue 3 of Ohio 2015 would’ve made a Marijuana commercial oligopoly or ‘monopoly’ if you wish to stretch that definition.
            It wasn’t about semantics nor stupidy but the Majority of the Pro-Cannabis voting Ohioans wanting a ‘free market’. Now they will be getting their so called ‘free market’ just like with alcohol. And no we will not be waiting long for legalization in Ohio. Ohio will likely legalize in 2016 under FreemarketOhio just like I’ve stated and I see no reason why not since it would’ve passed and almost did in 2015 despite the economic structure being lousy. I doubt their ‘monopoly’ would have lasted more than 5 years before another constitutional amendment created ‘Open Markets’ and Open Home Grow.
            The RepublicRATS were not the heart of prohibition in Ohio. The DemocRATS are no better! ALL of the government here from the governor on down acted in collusion in 2015 to attack, defame, and destroy ALL attempts at ANY form of Marijuana legalization and are still to date continuing to do the same and likely will in 2016 as well.

          • And you and all others whining already about what FreeMarketOhio aka ResponsibleOhio will be offering in their new 2016 amendment text need to shut up! NONE of us have any direct knowledge of their upcoming amendment text yet and while speculation labeled as such is fine, baselessly attacking the new Marijuana legalization initiative just because it is from FMO/RO is a stupid knee-jerk reaction to such a thing. You talk of how ‘weak minded’ Ohioans were duped by cries of ‘monopoly’ and are correct that they were by prohibitionists. But you oddly contradict yourself by now attacking the very same organization you defend by calling Ohioans who voted against it stupid. I think they were duped, naive, and made a BIG mistake too and should have amended Issue 3 in 2016 instead of waiting for another legalization. Thankfully FMO is coming back now!

      stop lying

        You’ve probably never been there.

        • saynotohypocrisy

          You’re right, but I don’t have to to know that 8% is ridiculous. I haven’t seen a recent poll of any state below at least 30% in a long time.

    • darthhillbilly

      That isn’t a very nice thing to say. It depends upon which part of Kentucky you reside in. Unfortunately, I live in the heart of Appalachia. Racist…check…backwards…check…but not all of us. You should have seen the reaction of locals when the gay marriage decision was passed. I’m proud of my heritage…proud of my people…well…not so much lol. You do need to check your numbers. Medical Marijuana has overwhelming support.

      • Derek

        True. I live in Louisville. Just because it’s in Kentucky…we get mixed in with all the hillbilly stereotypes.

    • Is that what your butt buddy kevin sabet told you to say!? We who are in these forums often KNOW that skoallio is a lying shill for marijuana prohibition! just go read his vile kevin sabet loving trash in other threads!

      • stellarvoyager

        Skoallio’s always coming by to drop a turd in the comment section and then leave. He’s a propagandist for child abusers. See Kevin Sabet’s association with Melvin and Betty Sembler. Sabet is on their payroll. Skoallio never addresses those points when I bring them up.

If you please I think you’d enjoy my YouTube channel and the more the merrier! I have some super HOT stuff about to drop major infobombs!

          Please, if you are informed of such things then please read ALL of my Disqus comments to date and Copy and Save them somewhere safe! I’ve revealed dangerous secrets or rather open secrets that are VERY important! I’d appreciate ANYONES help who wishes to save my writings and works as evidence in the event I’m attacked as I’ve been in the past for speaking out.

          And also, I’ve some recommendations for you! I’m not sure what your awareness level is in general but considering your post I think these will greatly interest you.
          Documentary: “Conspiracy of Silence” the story of child abuse sex slavery organized crime connected to the white hous and major figures. about Boys Town abuse scandal. and THAT is only what has been exposed!!!
          Research: “MK-ULTRA and Mind Control”
          Book on DuPont but harder to get: “Into the Bandsaw”

          Your posting is actually quite loaded and significant! DuPont family and company are pure EVIL and are of the illuminati as is the whole Bush family whose real last name is “Scherf” which is German. The Bush Family are literal Nazis to date and Prescott Bush laundered money for the Nazis during WWII. I noted the presence of the Socialist DARE snitch program! George Orwells spy children are here! Kevin Sabet is a part of it all.

    Perry Clark has the guts to push for common sense solutions. Kentucky has huge budget problems and this could be a win-win for everyone solution.

    • darthhillbilly

      I agree wholeheartedly. Unfortunately the political views here are more in line with the 1950’s. I just wish we had voter referendum…then we could change the law such as other states have done.Our most prominent rep. is a GOP conservative who doesn’t want to change anything. Mitch McConnell sucks…big floppy donkey dong…(just my opinion)
