What may these two State Governors be sharing in regards to legalized recreational marijuana?


The Chicago Tribune article that newly elected Governor Pritzker may be having arrière-pensée about legalized recreational marijuana similar to Colorado’s governor.

The Purpose of This Post

To associate the reality of what may happen in communities that approve recreational marijuana.


Arriere-Pensee: mental reservation

Arribada: the synchronized, large-scale nesting of some species of sea turtle  

King Solomon

he words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools. (Ecclesiastes 9:17)

The words of wise men are heard in quiet,…. That is, by some persons and at some times, though not by all persons and always; or they are to be heard, or should be heard, though they seldom be, even the words of wise men that are poor: these are to be heard quietly and patiently, without any tumult and contradiction; or should be heard, being delivered with a low and submissive voice, without any noise, or blustering pride, or passion, sedately and with great humility, submitting them to the judgment of others; which sense the comparison seems to require;

more than the cry of him that ruleth among fools; more than the noisy words of a foolish governor; or than the dictates of an imperious man, delivered in a clamorous and blustering way; by which he obtains authority among such fools as himself, who are influenced more by the pomp and noise of words than by the force of true wisdom and reason; but all right judges will give the preference to the former. The Targum interprets it of the silent prayer of the wise being received by the Lord, more than the clamour of the wicked.

What’s My Point?

There is a political clamoring for legalized recreational marijuana occurring in various States in the USA. Will legislators use quiet wisdom to review the statistical results s of what may occur same as in States that approved recreational marijuana?

 Or will he someday have what the Colorado Governor expressed of his “mental reservations” that his approval has resulted in higher crime because the result was to incentivize an arribada of folly to occur in his State?

You Decide

Will your Governor approve the clamoring of fools, in my opinion, and later experience an arrière-pensée because of an resultant arribada (rather than turtiles) to follow,  such as crime, auto accidents, addiction, mental health, brain impairment and long term health problems, wickedness, homelessness, government subsidies to heal resultant social problems, etc. etc.

Regards and good will blogging.
