Certain Illinois residents may soon have another reason to flee Illinois.
In a previous post titled, King Solomon on Flock Pots, I commented on a lawsuit by a local organization against the Colorado Law to legalize recreational marijuana.. Two local States and an organization, Safe Streets Alliance, filed a suit to oppose legalized marijuana in Colorado because it attracted unsavory residents and hurt their property values.
The Colorado Federal Justice struck down the lawsuit because, “ in short, that private parties can’t seek recourse for violations of the Supremacy Clause, which makes federal law the supreme law of the land. He also concluded that it’s up to the U.S. attorney general and Department of Justice to enforce — or not enforce — the Controlled Substances Act, under which marijuana is still illegal.”
What’s My Point?
If you oppose recreational marijuana and live in Illinois, a State presently in debt for over 100 billion dollars, your only option is to flee “unsavory residents,” or “live and let live” even if you oppose recreational drugs effects in your communities..
That is unless President Trump’s DOJ Jeff Sessions steps up to the plate and files a Federal Suit to end recreational marijuana.
In My Opinion
With the National Debt being Twenty Trillion Dollars, and recreational marijuana potential for additional revenue, Jeff Sessions will be silent on this issue.
Only time will tell if Illinois will become more unsavory in the eyes of those who oppose living in a State that many already consider a poor choice to live. Unfortunately, if they have jobs and a family, they will have to make economic decisions that over history has proven that when you are in debt, your choices are limited who will be your neighbor.
Being in debt may cause many to worry about their beds being taken from under them. /that is unless you have accumulated a lot of money over time to do what King Solomon predicted happens to communities and nations which has become increasingly evident that we do not live in a perfect world anyway in the world. More so if you are living on minimum wages, in debt ,and live in certain neighborhoods in Chicago.
It is not wise to go into debt.
It is not wise to allow more problems of recreational drugs to increase when we already know and cannot control the problems of alcohol and DUI on our roads.
It is wise to give drugs to someone who is dying.
Do not make a habit of striking hands, of going surety for debts. If you have no resources to settle them, why should your bed be taken from under you! (Proverbs 22:25, 26)
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)
Will more people turn to drugs to forget the stresses of life and their problems both physical and mental?
Will more people leave Illinois because they do not approve of “unsavory neighbors” and unsafe streets?
In time, will killings in Chicago, a higher rate of opium addition, increase or decrease?
Is the reason the demand for drugs in our nation is growing because our nation is sinking in debt, and dying, both physically and morally, and/or is savory or unsavory?
