Happy Weedsday! I hope today finds you doing well.
Election time is almost here and its almost time to vote, y’all! As you may or may not know, I am a Libertarian and I support our Libertarian candidates that are currently running for an assortment of offices across Texas. Every candidate I have spoken to that is running has a cannabis platform, believes it should be legal and is willing to do what it takes to make this happen.
I have personally met with and spoken to each candidate and they understand the importance of cannabis legalization in our society. Texas needs cannabis to be legal because it’s time to stop the failed drug war. It’s time to stop denying its medical benefits. It’s time to stop lying to a society about why it’s illegal to begin with. It’s time to start correcting the damage that has been done to communities across the nation by the greed and profiteering of major corporations, the pharma industry and our government by denying access to this plant.
The candidates listed here support legalization and will help fight for this cause. This is not a complete list. There are other libertarian candidates running that I failed to mention, mostly because there are too many to list here.
I encourage every one of you to do your homework and make educated decisions before voting.
Nature is wondrous!
