Marijuana is, for the most part, cheap, good quality and readily available. When I put NBA 2K13 and loungewear before gainful employment and personal hygiene, I could have a Quarter of the stuff delivered to my house within 30 minutes, and I'd be a cognitively impaired zombie within 40.
As scintillating a lifestyle as this sounds, there are some people who simply need more. Not only do they want to transform themselves into a lethargic, socially incompotent version of themselves, they also want to pay top dollar to do it, buy the drug at a licensed shop which they have to drive to, and ceaselessly talk about their love for the greenery in front of anyone who'll listen.
Consequently, support for Marijuana legalisation has sky-rocketed across the United States. Some argue that the benefits are purely medical. However, I'll only buy these claims when they're made by someone with a five year medical degree from an accredited university, not by a man called Sun-Ray who owns a green-house in Boulder and listens to Phish.
For some reason, my opinions are no longer shared by a lot of people. Some feel so strongly about the issue, that they'll risk their livlihood to fight for it. Like Charlo Greene, a news anchor in Alaska who put her position as head of a Cannabis lobbying group ahead of the role that paid her. When the state didn't pass legislation, she vented her feelings by quitting her job on live TV.
Smoke weed = lose your job. Still think pot is harmless?
