    California's Governor Is Worried About "Potheads"
    [​IMG]Expand

    California governor Jerry Brown is harshing on Colorado and Washington's multimillion dollar mellow.

    The governor appeared on Meet the Press this morning and talked pot, saying California's medical marijuana laws—which are a very serious bar to obtaining marijuana, and definitely not just a $30 "doctor" appointment at the Venice Beach boardwalk—shouldn't be relaxed because it would ruin the country.

    It's worth noting Brown was accused of hosting cocaine-and-marijuana-fueled parties at his Los Angeles home in the '90s.

    "How many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation?" Brown told David Gregory. "The world's pretty dangerous, very competitive. I think we need to stay alert, if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the potheads might be able to put together. "

    Because no admitted marijuana users have gone on to be president, host the Oprah Winfrey show, or sit on the Supreme Court.

    Fortunately, it's not up to Gerry Brown. If I'm not mistaken, legalization can be approached through ballot initiative in California. It had been scheduled for 2014, but supporters decided it had a better chance in the 2016 elections.

    And they don't have enough $$ :(. The CA ballot initiative is a broken system. Gay marriage was shot down and legalization was shot down already via that method, despite the majority of CA residents not really feeling that way.

    Anti-gay political groups spent like 10x and the anti-cannabis groups were also heavily linked to the military industrial congressional complex which has big big $$.

    It's pretty sad that out here in CA we start the ball rolling on progressive issues, but because of the lame way the ballot initiatives work, we can never finish first.

    The 3 strikes rule is another one we can't get right :(
