President-elect Donald Trump will prove to be a win-win for the re-legalization of cannabis. Regardless of what he does he will provide a faster path to full re-legalization than Hillary Clinton. Ms. Clinton would have permitted medical cannabis and lots of research, all of which would be good. But she was not in favor of rec legalization and might have put up some roadblocks barring that end. Because some good was happening the cannabis “culture of accommodation” might have tucked its’ head saying “okay, it’s better than a poke in the eye.”
On the first road Trump leaves the re-legalization decision to the individual states. When this state is legal, and that one right next door is not, it will be seeing HOW MUCH?! tax revenue and that will challenge black hearts and closed minds in resisting state legislatures. In America, money talks — loud. With the first states testing what works and how, the last group of states to re-legalize can move at a faster pace, not make the same mistakes, and bring a legal system on-line with minimum delay.
Trump has said he will leave the decision to the states, but I don’t think we can count on what he says as a guide to what he will do. Trump says whatever jumps into this head in that instant, has no brakes and evidently precious little skill at or interest in deliberation. Oppositional and reactive he might / can be goaded into doing almost anything. He says he wants to be perceived as unpredictable. He is.
If that is what happens then the question of re-legalization is gets placed where it belongs — in our hands. If we have the balls and the ovum we can make the government end their eighty-year lie. THERE ARE MORE OF US THAN THEM. 63% of the country wants full re-legalization. That percentage keeps rising. Canada has legalized rec. Mexico has legalized med. America is surrounded. Do we have the courage to stand up to our own government and make them embrace the future? We may / will find out.
If we stand up and make democracy work like it is supposed to we will win. This is true regardless of what the new President decides to do. Are you brave enough? Am I?
We may / will find out.
