Meteors and Marijuana

Orionids Meteor Showers- what a nice reminder of "The Bigger Picture"

about the Marijuana thing...

Like his smirk or don't - Joe Biden said something memorable at the VP Debate-

" Life begins at conception in the church’s judgment. I accept it in my personal life". While he accepts the church’s doctrine when it comes to abortion, he refuses to “impose that on others.“I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that -- women they can’t control their body. It’s a decision between them and their doctor. In my view and the Supreme Court, I’m not going to interfere with that.”  Basically, he was saying that he willing to believe what the church says for himself, but didn't like imposing his beliefs on the world. 

That's how I feel about Marijuana. I don't smoke it, but i have a hard time understanding why it isn't given the same status as alcohol both as a way to infuse hurt economies and defuse drug cartels and prevent college "herb" growers from going to prison. I think we are crippled in this area as a culture and I'm all for Colorado breaking the mold!  So "Fuck You" Amazon for making the millions of us who sold your products, pawns in your political game. There were other ways to rally us to consciousness - now you just look like a warmongering politician who sees the casualties that result from their decisions as minor sacrifices for the good of the goal.  Good on you Colorado for braving the territory that the so many won't do publicly.
