    On July 1, 2017, thousands of people in Nevada waited in line at dispensaries for hours to purchase marijuana — a plant that has been cultivated for thousands of years and has never killed anyone.

    The night before, parties raged in celebration of the ability to purchase it for recreational purposes.

    • And why should we be surprised? The only reason it has taken this long is because the ruling class elites have been figuring out how to control and profit from it without raising any suspicion in the process.

      And since it is the Baby boomer generation who has been waiting the longest, and because we’d like to be able to smoke a joint legally before we die, it’s no wonder that we’d turn a blind eye to this, just more status-quo corruption, if it means we can finally get stoned without constantly looking in our rearview mirror (metaphorically-speaking)…
