My comment therein shared with you herein fwiw…
They’re just trying to get their prohibition fix, and it’s all they got at best in their attempt to get there.
What they’re not doing is justifying prohibition by coming out with their “See! We told you so!” infographic showing all of the disasters they proclaimed would happen upon “weakening” drug laws.
After all, such “weakening” has amply occurred over the past few decades with no credible evidence to support such disaster (because prohibition never actually worked), despite strictly political posturing to the contrary.
Montana Republican dominance effectively overturned voter approval for medical cannabis, merely because we’re all supposed to assume that cannabis legality is harmful without experimental science and empirical data to do anything but counter that assumption — with the mainstream media exercising their typically seriously biased (so journalistically unethical) neglect on the matter.
Rush Limbaugh broadcasted his opposition for sustaining cannabis legality in Colorado, solely on the basis that someone there (I assume a Republican politician there) says it was a big mistake.
Outrageously pitiful are the only two words to describe the effort to keep the prohibition fix going.
Outrageously pitiful would be the ignorance of the prompt need for a public intervention, so sanctioned thugs can no longer be sanctioned, but can get the help they need for public safety. Such intervention could include the prohibitionist “treatment” mindset, so those thugs would get their help by ending up behind bars for rights infringement (an actually harmful and illegal result they caused as a group against millions of actually-innocent people).
Thankfully, the public is increasingly understanding that reefer madness has been law madness all along.
