We heavily question the damage that is done from marijuana use to an adolescent’s brain, but then romanticize a sport where they run head first into each other and act surprised that it “may” cause damage to the brain.

Mary Jane Rathbun, Inventor of the Marijuana Brownie.

In the 1980s, Mary Jane was baking over 4,000 brownies a week for Californian AIDS patients after she realised it eased their suffering and depression. Despite multiple convictions, she remained an active marijuana advocate until the day she died.

I had to fact check this and her Wikipedia page made me like her even more:

“She was raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where she attended Catholic school. At the age of 13, she was involved in an altercation with a nun who tried to cane her, but Rathbun fought back.”

“Social activism appealed to her from a young age; she traveled from Chicago to Wisconsin to campaign for the right of miners to form unions. In the late 1940s, she worked as an activist promoting abortion rights for women in Minneapolis.”

“Rathbun often appeared in public wearing polyester pantsuits, and she was said to have a ‘sailor’s mouth.’”

some heroes wear polyester pantsuits

IS SHE WHY ITS CALLED MARY JANE???

American Politicians: We can’t legalise pot because it affects the way you think and act while high on it!

And we have heard it might be addictive or have a negative effect on your health!

Also American Politicians: (Finishing their pint of beer) Anyway can’t stay and chat, got to meet with with those Tobbacco lobbyists today

Doing an assessment on an 80-ish little old lady.

“Do you use marijuana or any other recreational drugs?”

“No!  Of course not!”

“Haha, well, we have to ask everyone, because you never know, right?”

“Well, actually, I haven’t, but I’d like to.  Just to know what it’s like.  But I think it’s awfully expensive.  Do you know what marijuana costs?”

“…uh …that’s not really my department, ma’am.”

“I have a lot of friends who sell it.  But I’ve been too shy to ask them.  I should find out.  I’m not getting any younger, right?”

“None of us are, ma’am.”

So yeah, I think I accidentally convinced an elderly woman to start smoking weed.

Black people are likely serving life sentences for that same crime IN PORTLAND.

A system built to destroy black lives continues to flourish.

amnesty/reparations for drug war POWs

For those who don’t get it:

1) dispensaries are cash only start ups
1a) you have yo have an OBSCENE amount of cash on hand to start up a store, and that’s just for licensing, applications, property costs, security costs, the rudiments of an operation
2) most states only allow people without drug charges to even *apply* to start their own shop
2a) did I mention everything is in cash?

Even the amnesty bills being passed don’t go far enough. Unless records are expunged and some sort of coherence between federal and state law is reached, the problem will continue to get worse
