Say what you will about Donald Trump, he’s nothing compared to Hillary Clinton.
Hillary is bankrolled by Wall Street. Her nickname “Killary” comes from the actual deaths under her watch as Secretary of State.
While Trump merely talks about killing the families of terrorists, Hillary Clinton has a proven track record.
There is video of her laughing about taking out former-Libyan dictator Gaddafi, a move that ushered in instability and chaos.
I could go on — the e-mails, Syria, the rise of ISIS, Benghazi, defending a child rapist, accepting money from foreign governments that behead gays and suppress women.
Trump’s danger is conjectural, Hillary’s is real. She belongs in jail, not in the Oval Office.
And now we have another reason to loathe her — she is absolutely opposed to cannabis legalization “in all senses of the word.”
She claims to want to help urban black communities, but by perpetrating the drug war, she is confirming that nothing will change.
Publicly, she had indicated that states should do their own thing and that cannabis may be rescheduled under the Controlled Substances Act.
But, as she told Goldman Sachs, “you need both a public and a private position.”
It’s no secret that Hillary Clinton is a puppet for corporate interests. That’s all presidential candidates have been for decades, and the pharmaceutical industry is funding anti-legalization efforts.
Insys Therapeutics, the company profiting from fentanyl, donated $500,000 to a campaign opposing cannabis legalization in the US state of Arizona.
Hillary’s daughter Chelsea recently implied that cannabis could kill you.
The Clinton campaign has attacked Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson (who has made cannabis legalization a centrepiece of his campaign) as a “vote for Donald Trump.”
Hillary Clinton has voiced support for medical cannabis, but, as her daughter said, the plant needs to go through the Food and Drug Administration approval process which is the “gold standard of the world.”
Nobody in their right mind believes that the FDA, which has approved a number of dangerous drugs, many of which have killed people, is a “gold standard” in regulation.
Hillary Clinton is no friend to cannabis connoisseurs. Most politicians aren’t.
Even selfie-taking Justin Trudeau is turning his back on the nonviolent element of Canada’s cannabis industry, handing the keys to insiders and businesspeople who have the time and money to go through excessive and unnecessary requirements.
The Clinton vision for medical cannabis may end up similar to Harper’s top-down licensed producer scheme.
Which is a shame, because, with Hillary Clinton’s health problems and a sociopathic lust for power — she could really use a joint.
