Prop 19 Has Already Won…

…in terms of revitalizing the public discussion about the nation’s failed drug policies, according to this article on AlterNet.

Best quote from the article: “Controlling and regulating marijuana will mean jobs and revenue that the state currently cedes to criminal cartels and the black market.”

Yes, perhaps it took the state of the economy to get people to think outside the box, but when California turns things around, we’re going to see a lot more states suddenly realizing they’ve been pulling up and destroying a large portion of their state’s economy every year.

Old Hippie is a father of two boys and thankfully living in California where all this kind of thing is legal. He started smoking marijuana in 1967 in high school, experimented with mind-expanding drugs of all kinds, and then straightened out 15 or so years later to become an airplane pilot. After being diagnosed with depression in 2000, he lost his job and most of the following decade to prescription medications (such as antidepressants) which sapped his energy and will. Finally, a chance conversation with a friend led to a doctor’s recommendation for medical marijuana (MMJ). This changed his entire life, health, and outlook for the better. BeyondChronic.com is his continuing story. It’s also his way to provide experienced advice on using medical marijuana effectively and responsibly, as well as advocacy, activism, and support for others. Old Hippie teaches about safe use of cannabis edibles, Canna Caps, vaporizers, dosing, and even microdosing.

I think that may be a bit too optimistic. Just because it makes sense doesn’t mean it’ll happen unfortunately.

I’m rooting for it though.
