Should someone add some new verses to his hit song based on a wise County Board Decision?

The Chicago Tribune article titled, DuPage is state’s, 1st county to nix recreational pot.

The Purpose of This Post

Is to extend my accolades to the Board Members who voted not to allow the sale of recreational Marijuana in DuPage County.

King Solomon

here is an evil which I have seen under the sun, as an error which proceeded from the ruler: (Ecclesiastes 10:5)


here is an evil which I have seen under the sun,  

as an error which proceeded from the ruler; from the supreme ruler of a nation, the king of it; and it is not only as an error, or like one, a seeming one; ………  or through the misrepresentation and imposition of those about him, who have ends to serve by their promotion; or through his own lusts and passions, which these men indulge him in.  

What’s My Point?

Even though their decision only prohibits sales in unincorporated DuPage County, their numerous reasons reported in the news article are valid proven reasons.

In My Opinion

I have written numerous posts why I believe it is folly to legalize the sale of recreational marijuana. However, I always stated from the beginning of my posts that Illinois legislators would be successful to pass the legislation.  For example, consider the beginning referendum wording for voter’s opinions began the process to legalize.

The referendum stated, 

 “In the event marijuana is legalized, should the city of Chicago appropriate revenue from the sale of marijuana to increase funding for Chicago Public Schools and for mental health services?”

Read the final wording of what the Bill states now where the funds will be used and you will discover something changed drastically where the funds are going to be allocated.

In My Opinion

There was a hit song sung by Merle Haggard, Okie for Muskogee  which needs one more verse.


“We don’t want any selling of recreational marijuana in DuPage County

Cause we are wiser than them fools rowdy,

We want our kid’s brains to grow for thinking free

Cause wise is what God meant their brains to be.”

You Decide

Will the new laws to legalize recreational marijuana add more folly than what we now read and hear in the news?

Would you like to move to either Muskogee or DuPage County to remove you and your family from the upcoming marijuana folly?

Will other counties in Illinois wise up too?

Merle passed away in 2016. Should someone add the above verses to update a record a new release of the hit song to give accolades for the wise decision made in DuPage County?
