Mary and Jane struggle to refrain from using salty language however certain things tend to twist our panties in knots. Things like spelling words with ‘k” instead of “c” (I am looking at you KOA Kamping Kabins – shudder) and over-plucking your eyebrows into non-existence (you’re not a cyborg, dear – leave a few strands). But do you know what really pisses us off…I mean irritates us greatly? The US Government ie Crusty Ol Uncle Sam’s aggressive anti-cannabis stance.
Now we know that cannabis use has led to many sins – not the least of which is the over-abundance of tie-die…everything. But should cannabis really be in the same class as heroin or cocaine? We at MendoLicious are here to entertain and tend to shy away from heavy political discussions due to our cowardly nature and gross ignorance. But we feel that if cuddly Morgan Freeman – the inventor of integrity – can come out for legalizing cannabis then Mary and Jane should also toss our (oh so fashionable) hats into the ring. So here is a round up of reputable articles that discuss the history of why Uncle Sam is such a Dick about Weed. (Dickweed…see what we did there?)
- Wikipedia gives a nice general overview of government policy shenanigans
- Here is some pro-pot propaganda from those muck-raker stoner hippies over at PBS – why do you think Mr. Rogers was always so peaceful and happy?
- And if you have all day and want to CRUSH the competition at your next “Cannabis Trivial Pursuit” High Tea get together (is that a thing? maybe it should be…) then fetch your reading glasses and delve into this frightfully complete series of articles from The Forbidden Fruit and the Tree of Knowledge
So the next time your FOX News watching “cannabis is the devil” spouting Drunk Uncle starts to rant put him in his place (and for heaven’s sake take away his perfectly legal Gin) with your comprehensive knowledge of the True Reasons that cannabis was made illegal in the first place. Now. Off to find Morgan Freeman and invite him to High Tea!
