Just wait, in a few decades pot companies will form a monopoly, lobby congress, and get special funding and privileges for their industry, while shutting out other industries. Seems this is just how industries in America operate. Monopolies through regulatory capture and lobbying gains that far outstrip lobbying expenditures, making it a profitable approach.

Can you imagine what the USA would be like if the government worked for the people, rather than the companies?

Guess I'll be complaining about "big pot" in about 20 years or so. Funny, but yeah the cycle just keeps on going.

No, and that's sad. Technically, they do work for us though (at least that is what we've been led to believe, should probably fact check that one). We the people need to remember that.

Has anyone ever started a petition to fire the representatives that seem to favor corporate interests? I guess this would have to be done on a state/regional basis. Do petitions even work anymore? Guess I just outlined what I'm reading tonight.

Yes, but the problem is that no one has the authority to fire them, basically. Because "we the people" don't actually run our government, that's just a convenient fiction we're sold so they can maintain power with minimal resistance, imo.

You understand they do not care about you, they all lust for power and profit. Break the law and hope you do not get caught. If you do, and you're not hurting anyone, then who are you hurting but those that falsely imprison you on manmade laws. And walk in love above all. People are too easily manipualted into accepting oppression.

Also, Kraft is an Israeli firster as is Brady and Edelmen. Brady shoots at IDF ranges often. Funny how the patriots are in the superbowl. Patriots of a different country.
