Make America Green again

Greetings,

First re-cap after the election. I have been voting since 1984 and I can’t imagine two worse choices for President than what we got this go round: A greedy, law flaunting incompetent who helped ruin the other states in the Middle East George W didn’t destroy  versus a human Cheeto reality host. Ick.

The only good that came out of this election was this Nation dubbled the number of States that can re-assert mankind’s 8000 year connection to Jah’s wisdom weed. Three other states (including my homeland – Montana) approved Medical Marijuana.

A greener America: Marijuana’s big statement in Election 2016

Legalized: Collie-fornya, Jah-vada, Jah-suchusetts, Maine. (Arizona failed)

Medical MJ: Jah-rkansas, Jah-rida, Jah-tana, North Jah-kota

Jah-chigan’s legalization bid was yanked by an activist judge.

20% of this Nation now have benefitted from cannabis now.

  • In 2013 – 2 down, 48 to go!
  • In 2015 – 4 down, 46 to go!
  • In 2017 – 8 down, 42 to go!
  • In 2019 – ???

Maybe Obama will use an Executive Order and just legalize it everywhere. Finally some “Hope” for “Change” as he is packing up and moving out of the White House.

bless, robt
