After years of denying citizens even the lip service to their basic rights, the Tennessee legislature has moved one small step forward toward making one form of medical marijuana legal.
The new bill HB 1749 is no standard bearer for freedom, but at least it’s a baby step in the right direction.
Unfortunately, the bill faces an uphill battle with law enforcement basically goosestepping to the capitol, and sieg heiling the Drug War alongside their friends in the prosecutor’s office.
Indeed, the congressional committee heard from both traditionally freedom-crushing institutions who were unsurprisingly opposed to any form of medical marijuana. A few brave souls testified in favor of the proposal although their testimony was given less weight by the political class and the corporate media largely due to the fact that their occupations did not involve throwing peaceful people into cages over plants.This post was originally published on this site
