How much pain do people have to experience before they decide to get off the pro-crime train?
Considering the current polling for Gov. Hochul vs. Rep. Lee Zeldin in New York and Newsom’s seemingly untouchability in California, not to mention Rep. Karen Bass polling in the lead for the LA Mayor’s race, a significant percentage of the electorate in those states and cities are willing to keep on electing and re-electing pro-crime arsonists until the whole thing is ashes. And, like all leftist policies, each pro-crime policy is more insane than the last. Here’s the latest pro-crime equity package from New York.
If you or a loved one have a pot conviction, you could have a new employment opportunity. New York will give you first dibs to sell marijuana, legally.
While 19 states have legalized recreational weed, New York is the first to offer its initial dispensary licenses solely to entrepreneurs with marijuana convictions.
Sure, why not. They’ve got the experience.
“We think that leaning into folks who are not only justice-involved, but have that business experience means that we’re going to find a bunch of applicants who have gone through some significant challenges to still open and operate successful businesses,” Office of Cannabis Management executive director Chris Alexander said in an interview. “We just took a different approach.”
Actually the same approach that cartels have been taking for ages. Recruiting drug dealers to sell drugs makes perfect sense. If your goal is to sell more drugs.
The same government which can manage to lose money on gambling will find ways to lose money selling drugs. But that just means the money is getting stolen. As a modest proposal, why not put the cartels in charge of the whole industry? They’re “justice-involved individuals” with business experience who won’t tolerate theft or graft. That probably disqualifies them from government work.
Remember when the mafia didn’t want to touch drug dealing? Democrat elected officials in major cities are now morally lower than the mafia. Think about that.
“This drug business is gonna destroy us all.”
