Full committee participation remains necessary to legalize marijuana

The more, the merrier, and no, we are not just saying that the more folks lighting up their spliffs or joints, the more smiles and laughs there will be going round and round the social circle. That may well be the case if you are regular marijuana smoker but it’s probably still illegal out your way. So, just to be on the safe side, why don’t you just start up a campaigning committee to legalize the use of your favorite weed for once and for all? You will be surprised. By the time you’ve put out your first social media banner, just see how many folks come out through the woodwork, like dormant termites just woken up after a long snooze. 

These folks chose to remain hidden for good reason. They did not wish to be caught with their paws in the cookie jar. They did not wish to be branded as an offender, and yet, on occasion if they are, for lack of a better expression, responsible recreational users, they need to be re-creative, if you will, in secret. Because there is still a good chance that some or another elderly grandmother with a fondness for fine binoculars or looking glasses and the acrobatic ability to perch herself on her dining room table will be alerting the fuzz.

No matter how tedious and trivial the complaint may be the fuzz is duty bound and constitutionally bound to come over there, to your place, that is. There could be a rapping on your door while you’re still in a buzz. Because your recreational use is still illegal, even if done peacefully and quietly within the confines of your own home where no-one should be able to see you. So, as a responsible and respectful citizen who, at the best of times, bothers no-one, what is to be done? How will you ever be able to enjoy a quiet joint, far healthier than legal tobacco paper rolled cigarettes – how does that even make sense, the stuff is poisonous and yet its legal, the good green stuff can be good for you and yet it’s illegal.


As in all contentious cases, and if it hasn’t already been addressed – in most cases it has – you can approach your elected representative for guidance on the matter. Just how in hell’s name can marijuana be legalized. Better still; get a respected group of men and women together in one room to thrash out a way forward. This is indicative of full committee participation where all and sundry are qualified experts who are better able to put forward a progressive case. Because they are more than knowledgeable in the iconic weed, they will also know how to refine its source so that it can be free of dangerous carcinogens for the benefit of mainstream society.

Because after all, they do not have the benefit of a corner dealer like you do.
