When we were young we were learned in school that pot is a "gateway drug" . I've often wondered is that because:
- Once you start using pot you'll search for bigger and bigger highs (as we were taught)
- Purchasing pot where it's illegal introduces you and desensitizes you to dealing with that criminal infrastructure. So purchasing it from a drugstore or bodega would reduce the chances someone moving to harder drugs.
Under Pres. Bush (43) and Pres. Obama I commented that I don't believe that this country should be run by executive fiat. I repeat that comment today. No executive orders, no national emergencies, no agency regulations. Although the President is more powerful than any individual Congressperson, we are not a monarchy, the executive branch should be weaker than the legislative branch. This has nothing to do with The Wall, or being against Trump.
True REPUBLICans believe that this is a republic of states and not a democracy. All States need to be represented in these decisions.
The EXECUTive branch's job is the execute the laws enacted by congress within the budget laid out by congress.
I love craigslist!
