commented on The Green Party Responds to Dan Savage, Says He's "Dead Wrong"
While Dan was far too harsh on the Greens, I'd like to call a little bullshit on the response of "We are running people for offices!". Looking through my Voter's Pamphlet at statewide offices up for the current primary, I don't see any Green Party candidates. This is Washington, the EverGREEN State, with the supposedly greenest Governor in the nation.
Cadidates for Governor: 11; no Greens but a Socialist Worker, 5th Republic (?), Holistic Party candidate.
Lt. Gov: 11; no Greens, but the Citizens Party and a Libertarian got on the ballot
US Senator: 17!; no Greens, but Human Rights Party, Standupamerica, Lincoln Caucus, and System Reboot Party candidates are up for the vote with Dems, GOP, LIbertarian and Indy types.
There are 7 candidates for Commission or Public Lands (of the EverGREEN state!), but none of them are Green Party folks.
It apparently isn't very hard to get on the primary ballot here, and many of those candidates are loons (talking about you, Alex Tsimerman), so how the fuck can the Green Party not run a single candidate for these offices and still claim to be relevant?
commented on Forced into the Black Market
I'm not seeing a shortage of CBD products in retail stores, and I shop for them frequently. Prices for all marijuana products are currently lower than they were on the black market 5 years ago. The weed I'm buying now is also better quality, and I don't have to guess about the strain or potency. I suppose if I had grown accustomed to free weed/oil from a supplier, I'd probably be upset about losing that connection too.
The truth is the medicine is even more available, and affordable, than ever. You don't need a fake card from a fake doctor (no legit MD would ever recommend smoking anything), and you don't have to wonder about the dozens of other very healthy young adults who are "filling a prescription".
You can get your medicine over the fucking counter now! Stop complaining about not getting free weed anymore!
