A couple dozen +/_ GOP candidates and not a one of them gives an audible damn about bashing the Demon Weed this election cycle?? Is that scaffolding over the dome right now truly just one giant MJ vaping filtration system Congress stealth-ordered way ahead of the District managing to lift 78 years of pot prohibition on itself? All [...]
