Thanks to cannabis legalization I like the cops again
Let me say that I am not talking negatively about the police.
I would never do that… mostly because they can arrest me or shoot me at any time with no reason.
I will say that now legalization has passed the state government I like the police a lot more than I used to! The cops were always a source of tremendous stress for me, usually because I had a lot of illegal cannabis packaged and loaded in my car. I would drive over to the next state once or twice a month and buy weed from one of their legal cannabis dispensaries. Then I would have to get all the way back home, terrified of getting pulled over. As much as I love smoking cannabis, I do not want to go to jail for it! Recently cannabis reform finally cleared the final hurdle by winning the popular vote with the citizens of the state. Now I don’t need to look at the cops as the enemy any longer, because cannabis isn’t contraband. That doesn’t mean that people are allowed to drive around smoking marijuana, of course. Cannabis is now treated the same as alcohol, which means it is legal to buy and use, but you can’t endanger other people under its influence! Finally I live in a state where it is as easy to buy cannabis as it is to buy a gun. It always struck me as weird that firearms were easier to obtain than marijuana, when one is used for murder and the other is used for medicine.
