I am highly horrified to find out that there are those among you who oppose legalization on the basis of lost profits. I think we all have taken notice of the recent articles of Humboldt county growers griping about the drop in demand and price.
To those who count themselves among this sad and sorry group, you are no longer with us. You are that slimy chimera we have been fighting all our lives. The pusher, the dealer, the asshole who is more concerned about his pocket book than your safety or comfort. This is why we want legalization. So we don't have to deal with you greedy fucks for one more second. I have heard the complaints, but I will say that I would much rather buy marijuana in a licensed and taxed situation a la Amsterdam than fear the tentacles of the DEA and every jack booted blue shirt that sees me as a quota-booster.
If you oppose legalization on the grounds of your lost profits, I hope every seed you plant turns to dust. I hope the DEA breaks down your door and violates your security and income. Why? Harsh? You deserve it. You have shown that you are nothing but a greedy dealer, and should be dealt with as such.
Yes, you made a killing during prohibition. So did the gangsters, the cartels, the gangs during alcohol prohibition. But did you deserve it? You leveraged the risk against us and now that Mecca is on the horizon, you quiver.
My advice? Fall back in love with the plant that you have debased to dollars and cents. Then go get a real job.
