Five Very Credible People Who Support Cannabis
Category: Culture | Posted on Fri, January, 3rd 2014 by THCFinder
Celebrities support cannabis and this is a common fact. There are tons of artists that have songs about smoking blunts and drinking and selling/buying weed. Plus, with the stress of such a fast paced life, who wouldn't be smoking bud? But while celebrities have a huge effect on society, they don't seem to have the same effect on politicians. The following five people have been involved (or are involved) in politics and are supporters of cannabis legalization.
1. Joycelyn Elders is a Former US Surgeon General. During and after her tenure, she spoke out regarding many policies, including the legalization of cannabis.
2. Politician Ron Paul served as state rep in Texas and helped to cosponsor the States' Rights To Medical Marijuana Act. He's voted in favor of multiple hemp and cannabis related issues. Unfortunately, since he didn't have bottomless pockets, he didn't get elected for President like a lot of stoners hoped.
3. As an actor-gone-politician, Jess Venture has said numerous times that the legalization of marijuana would help to lower crime rates everywhere and boost the American economy up out of its slump.
4. Oprah has admitted to smoking ganja before. While she may not be a direct politician, she is an activist for many causes and could do wonders with her sway over society to promote the legalization of cannabis, including influence politicians. No one is safe from the media.
5. Obama himself has admitted to using cannabis. Not only that but he's the subject of a good amount of cannabis related memes around the internet.
Having the support of influential people like these is extremely important. If we have important politicians on our side, then our voices might be heard. Cannabis stands a better chance of becoming legal with every day that passes. It will be a great day when we can finally smoke where ever we want and get our cannabis from reputable places, rather than dark parking lots.
