It’s A Gas!

By mike flugennockSaturday - November 23rd, 2019Categories: DC Local, Economy, liberty

Every year the US House of Representatives’ Oversight Committee votes to approve the city budget of Washington, DC. Imagine, for a moment, that you live in any other city in the US, and your city can’t pass a budget or fund the implementation of new laws without the approval of a bunch of politicians hundreds of miles away who don’t even live in your state. That’s pretty much the situation we’re looking at here in the District Of Columbia.

In every session for the past four years, Rep. Andy Harris (R-MD) has inserted a “rider” into the budget bill, preventing the District Of Columbia from passing laws to establish a framework and budget for implementing the legal sale of cannabis in Washington, DC. As of 2014, it’s been legal to possess, grow and consume cannabis (on private property), but we’re still trapped in a “gray market” or “sharing economy” in which actual cash sales are illegal — thanks to Rep. Harris.

Just last night here in Your Nation’s Capital, an off-duty cop shot and wounded a couple of people over in Southeast. Cripes, it’s as if they get even worse when they go off-duty; what’s the damn deal with that?

I don’t know about anybody else in this town, but I didn’t like living in the “Murder Capital” the first time around.
