2. 2020 would be a landslide.

It's wayyyy beyond time. Very popular move I'd think. Hopefully the Ds will do it.

4. One of my old school biker buddies was all stoked about it when they passed the WA state law.

He's actually a rancher in eastern WA, real red country. He is red to some extent, but more of a libertarian and stoner dude.

His little town is just big enough to have it's own nine hole golf course. He and another buddy were out golfing and smoking a bowl and the head groundskeeper told them that was not allowed. I think he was right, but my buddy said, "fuck you "Earl" ( I don't know what his name really was) It's legal now!"

I told him that is exactly what not to do! As tempting as it may be, don't antagonize any old redneck types over it. Just be happy with what we got and enjoy it.

I'm a little skeptical about the push to also allow shrooms to be sold legally. I almost wonder if that doesn't stink a little bit like a false flag deal? I actually had pretty good experiences with shrooms in my younger days, but let's not overreach there. Let the weed legalization spread and turn out totally cool before we go with that.

6. I've been tracking the Illinois bill

and we should have legalization on the Governor's desk in 6-8 weeks.
