What else can we expect when we elect the ‘Choom Gang’ leader? And then there’s the obvious: the political bureaucracy will have less trouble if all the Little People are stoned.

Via Washington Times.

Former New Mexico Gov. and 2016 Libertarian White House hopeful Gary Johnson says he thinks President Obama is going to remove marijuana from the government’s “Schedule I” list of narcotics considered particularly harmful and addictive on his way out of office.

“It’s going to be just like alcohol,” Mr. Johnson told The Washington Times Tuesday. “I’m going to predict that Obama, when he leaves office, is going to deschedule marijuana as a Class I narcotic. I wish he would have done that to this point, but I think he’s going to do that going out the door. That’s a positive.”

Marijuana is currently on the Schedule I list alongside drugs like LSD and heroin. The Drug Enforcement Agency defines Class I drugs as having a high potential for abuse and no currently accepted medical use.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, among others, has suggested reclassifying the drug under Schedule or Class II. Those drugs include cocaine, but also certain painkillers like oxycodone that are available with a medical prescription.

For those of us who have smoked pot and taken other drugs, we know that marijuana is nothing like alcohol. Nothing. It’s a drug that saps you any sense of energy, ambition and clear thinking. And it makes you dumb, which is also something the political class relies on when it comes to the citizenry.

Those who argue for it’s legalization in general have either never smoked it and are guessing it’s just like alcohol, or they’re potheads and have lost their ability to think critically.

Just saying.
