His days as a member of the “Choom Gang” of heavy dope smokers are behind him, but President Obama’s pro-pot policies are destroying lives on a regular basis. However, don’t look for the death and destruction to be included in a story about Obama’s legacy.

In one of the most recent cases, the Boston Herald reports that David Njuguna was driving high on “medical marijuana” when his car careened off the Massachusetts Turnpike at 81 miles per hour, slamming into State Trooper Thomas L. Clardy’s parked cruiser and killing the law enforcement officer. Reports suggest the crash may have been deliberate.

Njuguna, a reputed black Muslim from Kenya, has been charged with manslaughter, motor vehicle homicide by negligence and motor vehicle homicide while operating under the influence of drugs.

The Boston bombers, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, were also Muslim potheads.

Another paranoid pothead, Zachary T. Hays, randomly fired three rounds into another vehicle near Lake Delton, Wisconsin, killing an Illinois woman on a vacation with her family. The Wisconsin State Journal said the killer’s brother told investigators that Hays had smoked marijuana and was “acting extremely paranoid” when he shot and killed Tracy Czaczkowski, a wife and the mother of two children.

Back in Massachusetts, a well-funded pro-marijuana campaign insists that a measure on the November 2016 ballot to legalize the drug “will create safer communities.” The Boston Globe reports that a major financial contributor to the campaign is Susan Mosher Ruiz, who with her husband, Rene, was “charged with possession of drugs with intention to distribute in 1999 after the friend died at her dorm apartment at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where authorities found nitrous oxide, marijuana, and other drugs.”

The charges were apparently dropped after the husband paid a fine.

Republican Governor Charlie Baker, Attorney General Maura Healey, and Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh co-wrote a column against legalizing marijuana, noting, “Regular use that starts in adolescence has been shown to impair brain development, shrink school and career outcomes, and even lower IQ.” They also noted a scientific correlation “between regular marijuana use and severe mental health issues.”

Regarding the death of the state trooper, Boston Magazine reported that Njuguna had previously penned a Facebook post that read, “Just did 160 mph from Springfield to Webster in 25 minutes, good thing I wasn’t pulled over, i’m never ever going to do that again … Y.O.L.O ….”

Trooper Clardy, a devoted father and family man, was laid to rest at Saint Michael’s Church on March 22, 2016.

Njuguna, who had a medical marijuana card for an unknown ailment, had bought four marijuana cigarettes an hour before the crash, and a burnt marijuana cigarette was found in Njuguna’s car. His lawyer says he has no memory of what happened.

The marijuana “joints,” or cigarettes, were reportedly purchased at New England Treatment Access (NETA) in Brookline, Massachusetts. NETA has a “discount program,” telling potential customers, “If you’ve never shopped at NETA, then come on by and we will give you a onetime $49 credit when you spend $1.”

Wayne Sampson, executive director of the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, spoke out against legalization, saying, “The number of people killed every year in drunk driving accidents is very high. Certainly by making marijuana available legally, it’s only going to put an additional burden on public safety.”

The Worcester, Massachusetts Telegram & Gazette reported that close to 25,000 people already possess medical marijuana cards in the state.

Sampson said the users simply “paid a doctor to give them a prescription so they can use” the drug at their own convenience for purposes that could be completely unrelated to health problems.

In an understatement, Governor Baker said the fact that Njuguna,”is alleged to have had marijuana in his system at the time that he crossed three lanes of traffic and at full speed ran into Trooper Clardy’s vehicle raises questions that I hope are fully vetted as part of that investigation.”

There is no indication, however, that the Obama administration is backing away from its pro-pot stance. Obama, who also used cocaine, has claimed that marijuana is no worse than booze, and his administration has encouraged liberalization of marijuana laws.

    There is absolutely no doubt now that the majority of Americans want to completely legalize marijuana nationwide. Our numbers grow on a daily basis.

    The prohibitionist view on marijuana is the viewpoint of a minority and rapidly shrinking percentage of Americans. It is based upon decades of lies and propaganda.

    Each and every tired old lie they have propagated has been thoroughly proven false by both science and society.

    Their tired old rhetoric no longer holds any validity. The vast majority of Americans have seen through the sham of marijuana prohibition in this day and age. The number of prohibitionists left shrinks on a daily basis.

    With their credibility shattered, and their not so hidden agendas visible to a much wiser public, what’s left for a marijuana prohibitionist to do?

    Maybe, just come to terms with the fact that Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that’s approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think, and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

    Legalize Nationwide!…and Support All Marijuana Legalization Efforts!

  • Brian Kelly

    Contrary to what prohibitionists are trying so desperately trying to get the public to believe wholeheartedly and without question, legalizing marijuana IS NOT adding anything new into our society that wasn’t always there and widely available already.

    Marijuana has been ingrained within our society since the days of our founding fathers and part of human of human culture since biblical times, for thousands of years.

    So, since marijuana has always been with us and humans already have thousands upon thousands of years worth of experience with marijuana, what great calamities and “Doomsday Scenarios” do prohibitionists really think will happen now due to current legalization efforts that have never ever happened before in all human history?

    Legalize Nationwide!

  • Brian Kelly

    Legalizing Marijuana will not create a massive influx of marijuana impaired drivers our roads.

    It will not create an influx of professionals (doctors, pilots, bus drivers, etc..) under the influence on the job either.

    This is a prohibitionist propaganda scare tactic.

    Truth: Responsible drivers don’t drive while intoxicated on any substance period!

    Irresponsible drivers are already on our roads, and they will drive while intoxicated regardless of their drug of choice’s legality.

    Therefore, legalizing marijuana will have little impact on the amount of marijuana impaired drivers on our roads.

    The same thing applies to people being under the influence of marijuana on the job.

    Responsible people do not go to work impaired, period. Regardless of their drug of choice’s legality.

  • Brian Kelly

    The “War on Marijuana” has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful “War on Drugs” that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

    Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our tax dollars fighting a never ending “War on Marijuana”, lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It’s a no brainer.

    The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

    Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

    Even The President of the United States has consumed marijuana. Has it hurt his chances at succeeding in life? If he had gotten caught by the police during his college years, he may have very well still been in prison today! Beyond that, he would then be fortunate to even be able to find a minimum wage job that would consider hiring him with a permanent criminal record. Let’s end this hypocrisy now!

    The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana “crimes” because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

    Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that’s approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

    Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!

    In the prohibitionist’s world, anybody who consumes the slightest amount of marijuana responsibly in the privacy of their own homes are “stoners” and “dopers” that need to be incarcerated in order to to protect society.

    In their world, any marijuana use equates to marijuana abuse, and it is their God given duty to worry about “saving us all” from the “evils” of marijuana use.

    Who are they to tell us we can’t choose marijuana, the safer choice instead of alcohol for relaxation, after a long, hard day, in the privacy of our own homes?

    People who consume marijuana are smart, honest, hard working, educated, and successful people too, who “follow the law” also.(except for their marijuana consumption under it’s current prohibition of course) .

    Not the stereotypical live at home losers prohibitionists make them out to be. They are doctors, lawyers, professors, movie stars, and politicians too.

    Several Presidents of The United States themselves, along with Justin Trudeau, Bill Gates, and Carl Sagan have all confessed to their marijuana use. As have a long and extensive list of successful people throughout history at one point or other in their lives.

    Although that doesn’t mean a dam thing to people who will make comments like “dopers” and “stoners” about anybody who uses the slightest amount of Marijuana although it is way safer than alcohol.

    To these people any use equals abuse, and that is really ignorant and full of hypocrisy. While our society promotes, advertises, and even glorifies alcohol consumption like it’s an All American pastime.

    There is nothing worse about relaxing with a little marijuana after a long hard day than having a drink or two of alcohol.

    So come off those high horses of yours. Who are you to dictate to the rest of society that we can’t enjoy Marijuana, the safer choice over alcohol, in the privacy of our own homes?

    We’ve worked real hard our whole lives to provide for our loved ones. We don’t appreciate prohibitionists trying to impose their will and morals upon us all.

    Has a marijuana consumer ever forced you to use it? Probably not. So nobody has the right to force anybody not to either.

    Don’t try to impose your morality and “clean living” upon everybody else with Draconian Marijuana Laws, and we won’t think you’re such prohibitionist hypocrites.

    Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!

  • Brian Kelly

    Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and glorified as an All American pastime, booze.

    Plain and simple!

    Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!

    “Smoking marijuana is 114 times safer than drinking alcohol”

    http://rt.com/usa/234903-marijuana-safer-alcohol-deadly/

    “Marijuana may be even safer than previously thought, researchers say”

    “Marijuana may be even safer than previously thought, researchers say New study: We should stop fighting marijuana legalization and focus on alcohol and tobacco instead By Christopher Ingraham February 23

    Compared with other recreational drugs — including alcohol — marijuana may be even safer than previously thought. And researchers may be systematically underestimating risks associated with alcohol use.

    Those are the top-line findings of recent research published in the journal Scientific Reports, a subsidiary of Nature. Researchers sought to quantify the risk of death associated with the use of a variety of commonly used substances. They found that at the level of individual use, alcohol was the deadliest substance, followed by heroin and cocaine.”

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2015/02/23/marijuana-may-be-even-safer-than-previously-thought-researchers-say/

    “The report discovered that marijuana is 114 times less deadly than alcohol. Researchers were able to determine this by comparing the lethal doses with the amount of typical use. Through this approach, marijuana had the lowest mortality risk to users out of all the drugs they studied. In fact—because the numbers were crossed with typical daily use—marijuana is the only drug that tested as “low risk.”

    This article is bought to us by the Prison for Profit industry. America has more people in prison today than Communist China and Russia combined. The difference is that in America, prisons are profitable. It’s all billed to the taxpayer and the empty federal treasury. Prohibition is been a total failure and no reasonable person is arguing that in 2016.

    The parasite who wrote this article is begging for more government and nothing more. Prohibition of alcohol produced a million Al Capones just as the drug war has produced a million El Chapos. Each and every time Prohibition will produce corruption in local law enforcement and government. One hundred per cent of the time.

    Back when we ended the Prohibition of Alcohol, the parasites warned that there would be a bathtub gin operation on every corner, kids would be making bathtub gin, the sky would fall and everyone would get rickets. In reality, Americans just stopped making bathtub gin. The sky didn’t fall. But we didn’t have machine gun fights in the city over a keg of beer anymore.

    The question really boils down to whether we want to regulate the marijuana plant like adults, or do we continue to support the black market cartels. That is the choice. America owes a trillion dollars from the deficit for the Prohibition war alone. We haven’t even paid that off yet. That debt gets bigger every single day with prohibition. We can’t afford to keep funding the cartels even if the author of this article needs it because he can’t find a better job.

    The vast majority of educated America wants an end to the prohibition of marijuana now. We have listened to 70 years of Reefer Madness, and we are not going back to your social engineering no matter how much people scream for big government for protection. .This is a cheap, poorly written bunk based piece that loosely slashes together a bunch of associations for the political purpose of the propagation of fear and ignorance.

  • Erudite Mavin

    Your rant is the usual Left Wing and Libertarian propaganda.
    You obviously have not seen the destruction Marijuana
    has done to innocent people, neighborhoods and the cost of tax payers far more than the cost of prisons of those let out early and sitting on the streets, committing repeat crimes, destroying businesses in neighborhoods, using the sidewalks to pee or take a dump.
    Also high rate of people injured or killed by pot head drivers.

    You are fucking stupid …

  • Cassius King

  • Old Man Hicks

    While its irresponsible to be smoking while driving, I seriously doubt this was mainly due to cannabis. People on cannabis don’t drive across 3 lanes of traffic without hitting the brakes. Odds are it was either booze or opiates. Opiates are known for causing people to “nod off” for a second, which is more than enough for this accident.

  • Old Man Hicks

    Not true. I’ve been to Denver several times, and saw none of this. Real estate values are up 15%, serious crime is down, and there is $100 million to build new schools and for college scholarships.

    Highway fatalities in Colorado are at record low levels, while Washington traffic safety is essentially unchanged, but showing a potentially promising 10% drop in drunk driving fatalities. Alcohol increases risk of fatal crash 5x for BAC of .08, while most levels of THC increase risk much less than talking on a cell phone, as confirmed by the NHTSA study in Virginia Beach which found essentially no increase in risk.

    I do understand the concern after hearing some “studies” of massive increases in people killed by stoned pot heads, but everyone of those studies has a disclaimer saying “This study does not claim that the people testing positive for THC caused the accident”. In fact, the AAA Study indicated that there was no relation between THC level and impairment. Actually, I think that’s incorrect, but the impairment starts becoming an issue around 25 ng instead of current 5 ng level.

    BTW: Left-Wing – Libertarian? Thems fighting words on sites like Reason.com.

  • Franklin

    Boy did you take the parasite bait. The world doesn’t owe you a big government to protect you cupcake. Study the US Constitution. You can’t avoid responsibility by surrendering freedom. You are going to have to grow up instead.

    Marijuana still has zero deaths while people die from eating peanuts every day. No one with a functional brain uses the word ”pot” as the word doesn’t appear in any of the laws we’re getting rid of. You are clearly not on the side who is paying taxes in this country. We can tell that by your defense of big government.

    Maybe you should listen a little more to Gary Johnson and start drinking less of the party Kool-Aid. You can’t blame liberals for the mess you have made of your life. Your miserable attitude is that lump you see in the mirror. Get busy changing that and you won’t be dependent on the fantasy that big government can save you. Visit North Korea and see how that’s working out before you open your pie hole. No such thing as a good big government. You drank the Kool Aid if you believe that. Either way the gravy train is over. We the tax paying citizen, aren’t funding this crap anymore and without a budget to mooch off of, you don’t have any money.

    Welcome to reality.

  • Segundo Cazalis

    Same repetition, nothing about alcohol.

  • AFreedomFighter88

    Just more Reefer Madness nonsense . Addiction to legal pharmaceutical opioids (like Percocet, Fentanyl, Oxycodone, Percodan) is proven to be a direct GATEWAY to heroin use. Prescription drugs are directly responsible for over 237,000 deaths yearly in the US plus over 5,000 killed due to pharmaceutical intoxicated drivers. 46 PEOPLE DIE PER DAY from overdose of opium-based pharmaceuticals in the US. Every 9 minutes a child is admitted to a hospital emergency room for pharmaceutical drug poisoning.

    Booze consumption is a direct GATEWAY to alcoholism, street violence, domestic violence, traffic fatalities, teen pregnancies and death. Over 88,000 people die every year in our nation due to alcohol consumption plus 16,000 more in traffic fatalities directly caused by booze intoxicated drivers.

    Cannabis has never been proven by scientific study as a gateway drug and has never killed one single person in all medical history due to toxic overdose. No matter how much cannabis ones consumes even an entire bag of edibles it is never fatal. Cannabis has no significant statistical history of traffic problems let alone deaths. By comparison to booze and pills cannabis is very safe and far less toxic. Data posted above taken directly from the Center for Disease Control database.

    So, which is safer???? Legalize, regulate and TAX!

  • Doug Nickerson

    This article like most of the articles I have read that are against legalizing
    marijuana, they all have the same basic flaw in their logic. They pretend like
    alcohol does not exist. They can’t see forest because they are focused on a
    tree/plant. The forest being the use of drugs of all types. If one is serious
    about reducing drug use, then all drugs including alcohol should be illegal.
    Alcohol is not only more addictive than marijuana, it also is more dangerous
    and has more costly health issues, which the public pays for. Legalized alcohol
    also sends a mixed message to our youth.

    So based on the reality that alcohol is not going to become
    illegal again, we should be comparing marijuana use to alcohol use.

    I am sure police have been killed by drunk drivers or even by people taking prescription medicines.

    Decisions should be based on reality and logic, not based on bias.

    I’m no fan of Obama, but this article is completely moronic. First of all, our current president is anything but pro-weed. On the contrary, actually. His DEA has muscled it’s way into various legal (under state law) grow ops in Colorado quite a few times. As for this Njuguna fellow…I don’t really know what to say, other than that I’ve personally never heard of or known a pot smoker who would careen into a cop car at a high rate of speed, due to nothing more than the fact that they’re stoned. Bragging on one’s Facebook page about traveling at 160 mph from one town to the next isn’t really indicative (in my mind at least) of something the average weed smoker would do either. If any drug deserved to be blamed for that sort of behavior, I’d imagine cocaine or meth, with some already present psychosis for good measure, would fit the bill much better. I dunno….I’m only speaking for myself. I could be totally wrong, and there may very well be some strain out there that I’ve never tried that actually does make you wanna drive at insane speeds and kill cops. At this very moment though, I don’t feel like that. My forearms are a little tingly, I feel really relaxed and kind of dazed out a bit, and I’m a little hungry……Yup….it’s pretty much the same way I’ve felt the past 10,000 times or so that I’ve smoked.

  • Casey Kern

    Alcohol is poison. Your body is reacting to being poisoned when you’re drunk. That’s all “being drunk” is.

  • Casey Kern

    I’m heavily addicted to marijuana cigarettes, or “reefers” as they’re commonly referred to. I can’t stop smoking the evil herb, and it’s overtaken my entire life. Crapping on the sidewalk like a dog, as you’ve clearly illustrated, is particularly one behavior that I’ve been struggling with. I’ve been arrested numerous times for it. My neighbors, who once liked and respected me, now call me “Dog Man”. Sometimes I pee on fire hydrants when I’m stoned, and……sometimes…….Oh God, I can’t believe I’m telling you this……I return to my turds and I eat them. I don’t know what to do. Thank you so much for bringing awareness to the issue of inappropriate defecation of people who are high on marijuana. It’s probably too late for me, but hopefully some child who might be thinking of trying Satan’s harvest for the first time will read your post and think twice. God bless you, and may God have mercy on my degenerate reefer addict soul!

    63% of Massachusetts voters favored medical marijuana legalization, and this tool blames Obama for the death of an officer. Anyone who actually uses medicinal marijuana knows it is highly unlikely that was the cause of the accident. If anything, President Obamas lack of movement on descheduling a relatively benign plant with ample evidence of medical benefits is a major disappointment. Legalization is coming one way or another. Everyone with a wifi connection knows marijuana is far safer than alcohol, tobacco, OTC, and prescription pharmaceuticals. Vote in freedom. Vote out prohibitionists. Legalize 2016.

    And now for some studies done by those stoners and potheads over at the National Institutes of Health:

    The Effect Of Cannabis Compared With Alcohol On Driving
    “Although cognitive studies suggest that cannabis use may lead to unsafe driving, experimental studies have suggested that it can have the opposite effect.” U.S. National Library of Medicine, 2009
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2722956/

    Role Of Cannabis In Motor Vehicle Crashes
    “There is no evidence that consumption of cannabis alone increases the risk of culpability for traffic crash fatalities or injuries for which hospitalization occurs, and may reduce those risks.. The more cautious behavior of subjects who have received marijuana decreases the impact of the drug on performance, whereas the opposite holds true for alcohol.”
    REFERENCE: Marijuana: On-Road and Driving-Simulator Studies; Epidemiologic Reviews 21: 222-232, A. Smiley. 1999.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10682259

    “Physicians at the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich and the Inn-Salzach Hospital, Germany, presented the case of a 42-year-old truck driver with Tourette syndrome since the age of 6. He exhibited multiple tics and repeatedly standing up and down. Mostly, he was suffering from obsessive thoughts. All standard medications for tic disorders had proven ineffective. After two weeks of a treatment with increasing doses of THC (up to 15 mg a day) tics were significantly reduced.

    Since the patient required daily driving his driving ability was assessed with computerized tests, according to the German guidelines for road and traffic safety. Both in the drug-free phase and during THC therapy, the criteria according to German regulations were met in all functional domains investigated (visual perception, capacity of reaction, concentration and stress-tolerance). In comparison with the drug-free phase, there was a clear improvement in concentration and visual perception during the treatment with THC.”

  • IronChefSandwiches

    God, Kincaid is a moron. Even if these examples were caused by smoking pot (they weren’t), they would DWARF the number of incidents stemming from alcohol use. If Trump wins the White House (which he won’t) it’ll be interesting to watch Kincaid completely ignore the proliferation of pot legalization when he doesn’t have a Democrat to scapegoat and blame. This is just one more in a long, long line of lame attacks on the president with no basis in reality. Kincaid is a joke.

    This is nothing but something Kincaid can use to attack the president. Nothing more.

  • AFreedomFighter88

    The US government has known all along that cannabis is safer than booze and made a choice to ignore this fact in favor of corrupt social engineering and racism.

    The National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse (a.k.a. “the Shafer Commission”) created by Richard M. Nixon to study the “marijuana problem”, formally made its recommendation on March 22, 1972 advising Congress to remove criminal penalties on the possession and nonprofit distribution of marijuana.

    “Neither the marihuana user nor the drug itself can be said to constitute a danger to public safety,” concluded the report’s authors, led by then-Gov. Raymond Shafer of Pennsylvania. “Therefore, the Commission recommends that the possession of marijuana for personal use no longer be an offense, and that the casual distribution of small amounts of marihuana for no remuneration, or insignificant remuneration no longer be an offense.”

    Despite the Shafer commission’s recommendations, Nixon and Congress completely ignored the report. Since then nearly 100 million Americans have been arrested on simple possession of marijuana charges for nothing. FBI statistics indicate that one marijuana smoker is arrested every 45 seconds in America!

    Legalize, regulate and TAX!

    Pot, or weed, is no different than booze, in respect to being personally responsible concerning the when and where it’s indulged. And just like a fire arm, all can and will be used irresponsibly. It’s just human nature. And just like fire arms, misuse resulting in a death should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
    The thing most drug users don’t realize is that they are funding murderrers in South American countries every time they buy street drugs. It’s a vicious world of back street business, parasites feeding off of their weaknesses. And it keeps a percentage off the population compliant and easily controlled. We as a country will always be divide to some extent for as long as drugs, inferior education, and racial tensions exist.
    Maybe now as a society we are too big in numbers to ever unify for a common cause, such as taking control of our own communities. Let alone our run amuck government.

    Wow. I mean WOW! Talk about reefer madness nonsense. Cliff Kincad, why? What makes you think you are doing anyone any good with this illogical nonsense?

    Are you aware the the most recent studies are showing that Endocannabinoid Deficiency Syndrome may be responsible for most of our nation’s health crises? For those of us whose bodies do not produce enough endocannabinoids to allow the full and proper functioning of the human Endocannabinoid System (ECS) we need access to these vital nutrients.

    Posterity will look back on cannabis prohibition as one of the largest crimes against humanity ever committed. You sir, are certainly on record as being one of the biggest perpetuators of this crime. Our global society will be healthier, safer and happier once prohibition is repealed. God gave us this plant and I would much rather use what God gave us than what the multi-billion dollar profit-driven pharmaceutical industry cranks out to “solve” the problems created by the lack of these vital nutrients found only in the cannabis plant.

    I’m not even going to comment on the outright lies you put in this “article”. Although I commend your ability to lump all blacks, Muslims, terrorists, Africans, sitting presidents, and random psychos into practically the same sentence.

    “Narcotics police are an enormous, corrupt international bureaucracy … and now fund a coterie of researchers who provide them with ‘scientific support’ … fanatics who distort the legitimate research of others. … The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help, and suckering well-intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.” — William F. Buckley, Jr.

    Consider yourself “Kincaided” if you’re stupid enough to buy this tripe. I wouldn’t line a digital birdcage with this garbage.

    Kincaid knows absolutely nothing about marijuana and makes a fool out of himself every time he lectures his readers.

    LOL!

    You suck, and considering you won’t go away, that’s pretty relevant.

    You already are considering you believe in a Koch Brothers conspiracy.

    Jealous because you want it to be a competition?
