@Regrann from @chididdy26 - @Regrann from @spabg - Add Ohio Supreme Court Justice William O’Neill to the list. In a recent speech, the enlightened judge said cannabis should be legalized and all non-violent cannabis offenders should be released from jail.
. “The time has come for new thinking,” O’Neill said. “We regulate and tax alcohol and tobacco and imprison people for smoking grass.”
O’Neill says legalization and prisoner release would generate $350 million that would be used to treat drug addiction instead of criminalizing it, as well as create a mental health network to combat addiction.
. “Treat addiction like the disease it is in the name of compassion,” he said.
O’Neill is pondering a run for Ohio governor, but won’t make a decision until the end of the year. Even if he doesn’t run, his remarks inject some much-needed substance into the race, and should spur the candidates to put their positions on the record.
Ohio legalized medical pot in Sept. 2016, although legal sales won’t begin for at least a year. Ohio will have dispensaries and cultivation centers to provide medical products for a host of qualifying conditions.
O’Neill’s call to legalize all cannabis use, like alcohol and tobacco, and release non-violent cannabis “offenders” is a natural progression in rational thought. As far as drugs go, we know that alcohol and tobacco use kills hundreds of thousands of people every year, while no one has ever been known to die from the use of cannabis.
How can the State logically defend the legal status of more dangerous drugs (with little to no medical benefit) while a harmless, medically beneficial one is illegal? If there is no rational basis, and cannabis was completely legalized, then it follows that there is no rational basis for holding non-violent users and sellers of a natural plant in jail.

Wow I don't even know where to begin whilst I delve in the inspiration behind this piece. Guess I'll start with the roots. Just casually going about my day yanno throwing my pot pie into the radioactive heating box. Comes out a mess! So I thought you know what I have a whole box of cherry pop tarts calling my name from atop my fridge. Throw those into a toasting device. Then possibly an act of God as the (4) pop tarts perfectly form a square around the plate. Furthermore, as none of you may know, I have been highly intrigued with medieval as of late which is the era of castles. I'm getting pretty tired so I'm just gonna finish this. Alas: The Castle of Carbohydrates. #springhasbloomed#moats#pot#pie
Spending the afternoon watching the new Twin Peaks 🏔🏔 & finishing off my last half gram of this @nugabductionextracts that I can't remember the name of 😅👽
