Do Politicians in Illinois strike faster than lightning when they smell money in the air?
I published a post on March 30th, that a Judge has ruled that the Illinois law of forbidding pot companies to make political contributions to politicians is unconstitutional. I predicted that Illinois would soon be another legal recreational marijuana State.
On Sunday, three days later, I listened on TV news to Illinois Senator Heather Steans present her proposal that Illinois make pot legal and Illinois Police Association President James Kruger express his concerns why we should not legalize pot.
Give alcohol to a man who is going to die, and wine to those who are sad, that they may drink and forget their poverty, and remember their misery no more. (Proverbs 31:6, 7)b
Yet, there are appropriate times to wisely make use of wine and alcohol (opiate) as a medicine during extreme times of sickness or misery in their life.” (Proverbs Mc Kane)
In My Opinion
The State of Illinois is dying, both literally,. and figuratively,…..dying for money.
One issue of concern is more car accidents caused by drivers on pot will occur. While at the same time that concerned citizens are trying to tighten up law penalties for drunk drivers.
Another is what will happen in Chicago High Crime Districts with gun problems. Will allowing legal pot be the politicians remedy for constituents to “forget their poverty” and “remember their misery no more?
Will Senator Heather Steans soon receive political campaign contributions from pot sources now that it is legal?
Will all Illinois Legislators who voted to approve legalizing medical use of marijuana with the provision that pot producers could not legally contribute to politicians, all instead agree not to accept political contributions from pot producers?
Will DOJ Jeff Sessions sue all the States that have passed legalized recreational sales of Marijuana because it is violates Federal Law?
Regards and goodwill blogging.
