A new twist on Socialism

The state would take over growing and distributing marijuana to patients in the medical-marijuana program under a bill introduced Wednesday. Sponsored by Rep. Ron Maurer, R-Grants Pass, House Bill 3274 imposes a $98-per-ounce tax, which would cover the state's cost of operating and securing the production center....

...A bill co-sponsor, Rep. Chris Harker, D-Beaverton, told the Statesman Journal newspaper that the measure "takes medical marijuana off the streets and into a safer and more secure environment."

Why not? "We're All Socialists Now." Government knows best. And it's always in the name of 'safety.'

  1. Why settle for $98 when you can make $4,000 an ounce?

  2. Four Grand? Horry Clap there, Binky.

    Glad I smoked my last in the early Seventies......$10 I could afford.

    *Course, nobody got killed over it, either*

  3. It wasn't till the mid 70's when people started getting killed over it.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
