Sunday Funday: Vetoing Medical Marijuana Edition

hard to see forward with your eyes closed

Far sighted Kim Reynolds once again had a chance to bring a bit of Iowa into the 21st century by signing a bill to expand the use of medical marijuana in Iowa. Instead she used her governor’s ability to see into the future. Rather than seeing individuals whose pain or medical problem is relieved by medical marijuana she sees an Iowa ravaged by the scourge of cannabis as pointed out to her no doubt by representatives of the Pharma and alcohol industries.

The Iowa state drug czar (did Putin pick this czar?) claimed “there’s “limited scientific consensus” about the medicinal benefits of cannabis and the governor made a prudent decision.” One has to wonder if he or she was advised of this “limited scientific consensus” by the barkeeper at their favorite watering hole. Claiming that marijuana may be harmful while continuing to sell alcohol and nicotine is sure ass backward.

Once again Iowa has been saved from the scourge of pain relief by leaders who are truly the pain in the rear.

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, took advantage of Donald Trump’s storming out of an Oval Office meeting on Wednesday to hide the nuclear codes, Pelosi has confirmed.

Moments after Trump threw a tantrum and abruptly left his own office, the quick-thinking Pelosi turned to Senator Charles Schumer, who was also present for the meeting, and said, “Chuck, we’ve got to find those nuclear codes and hide them.”

Pelosi and Schumer ransacked the Oval Office for the codes until Pelosi finally located them in a desk drawer under a pile of empty Quarter Pounder containers from McDonald’s.
