The last time I wrote about the Tennessee General ASSembly I had them all hiding under their desks with Tony Shipley calling for big government to save him. No telling what will happen this time. I’ll try and be gentle….
A lot has transpired in the last five years as far as Medical Marijuana is concerned and as one of Tennessee’s foremost advocates of the sacred herb I must say I’m very pleased. The Department of Justice and it’s minions, the DEA in particular, have had their collective ass handed to them by the people, for the people. With the courage of state’s rights advocates across the country and a new breed of free-thinking politicians, it looks like justice is finally going to come our way. Even President Trump has bowed to pressure from leaders of his own party and agreed to respect the rights of states to govern themselves where MJ is concerned. Trump has even given the FDA orders to approve the first Cannabis based medicine since the FDA (Fucking Dumb Asses) insisted Marijuana had no medical applications. So as the DEA eats shit and Attorney General Jeff Sessions gets his own hatred and ignorance rubbed in his decrepit, moldy face it looks like victory is at hand.
Federalism can have it’s drawbacks. Like, what happens when your respective state has a legislature chock full of back-assward humanoids and various and assorted miscreants? It gets a little depressing. Believe me.
Now, I’m not saying things haven’t improved. They have. And I am pleased to state that we now have people like Beth Harwell, R-Nashvegas, Sen. Steve Dickerson, R-Nashville, and Rep. Jeremy Faison, R-Cosby, who have pulled their heads out of their asses and showed some backbone and an inclination toward compassion.
Now that’s balls, that’s something rarely seen/heard in the annals of Tennessee Leadership. The guts to fight for what’s right… to fight for the children of our state that suffer tremendously from violent seizures. Many to the point where their parents were forced to flee the arcane ways of Right-Wing extremism for the compassionate bosom of other states. For shame, TNGA. For shame.
The problem, of course, is as it has always been:
“I look forward to continued debate and discussion on this issue in the years to come,” McNally said. “I am confident this issue will remain a contentious one.”
Well, Speaker McNally, you piece of fucking dogshit-for-brains asshat. What makes you think that our suffering children and our opiate addicted and our Cancer sufferers HAVE “YEARS TO COME”? YOU FUCKING DOLT. This is something that should have been done many years ago. Tennessee could have and should have lead this country in the search for compassion seeing how all you fake-ass Christians like to stand up on pedestals and tell the world how you love Jesus and believe in grace and compassion. You’re a bunch of fucking liars. Each and every member of the TNGA that stands against this movement is the spawn of fucking Satan. I once wrote that “I spit on each and every one of you”. That remains my sentiment and will always remain so until those of you who love only yourselves, your money and your master the Devil change your disgusting, vile ways.
Tennessee will have this legislation thanks to the few brave, faithful among you. And every crying child, every groaning cancer sufferer, every good man and woman that languishes in jail for nothing is on your bloody, hateful, ignorant hands.
