it just pisses me off that everyone else gets political support with politicians on their side, but the cannabis community has to be alienated like some pedophile group or something. A recent pew poll showed that 52% of Americans say they support ending marijuana prohibition. Gallup and PPP is showing the same rise in support over the past few decades. But yet theres no politicians in Congress or in any of the state legislatures that support us. The marijuana reformers are forced to wait years till the next election, spend millions of dollars on a state ballot initiative and hope that marijuana legalization passes on election day. We cant get anything pro marijuana legislation passed by any state legislature or congress. And yet the NRA is able to get everything they want rammed through state legislatures regardless of public opinion. Kill at will laws, guns in bars, sell guns like candy, you name it. Gun nuts get political support. Pro lifers get political support with there extreme abortion bans that less than a 3rd of the population supports.. Pro choice people get political support. Hispanics get political support. Everyones trying to woo the hispanic/illegal alien vote. Cigar connoisseurs get political support for their rights to enjoy premium cigars. The gay mafia was able to get gay marriage passed in state legislature years ago even when the majority of the public was overwhelmingly against it. Theres all kinds of issues and movements far more fringe and yet they have a viable party that has their back! Everybodys got a party Democrat or Republican on their side. Everything is a wedge issue. But yet with the marijuana reformers, its BOTH viable parties equally AGAINST you even with 52% supporting full legalization and 80% supporting medical marijuana! WTF is going on? Is there any group of people or social movement you know of with this kind of disadvantage in political support vs public opinion?
