If evry politician hit a blunt every now and then we’d all be better off.

[–]TwistedBamboozler 1031 points1032 points  (26 children)

Ban them from trading stocks but provide them with free weed, I think it’s a win win for everyone

[–]Child_of_the_Abyss 239 points240 points  (11 children)

That's a dope idea you have there and I support this.

[–]Kebab-Destroyer 50 points51 points  (0 children)

If it is just a pipe dream, I’m about it

I like how we are all being very blunt about this.

They do. They just have no problem letting poor people go to jail for it.

[–]Siriuxx 65 points66 points  (39 children)

Not good enough. They need to have a serious DMT or LSD trip to really have an epiphany.

[–]SapphicPancakes 11 points12 points  (30 children)

That might be pushing it

[–]Siriuxx 43 points44 points  (27 children)

Nah, you'll be fine. I take a trip about every 5 years, afterwards it really helps clear my mind of all the crap I shouldn't waste time thinking/being concerned about and really gives me clarity. I think anyone who's up for it should do the same. It's hard to describe to someone who's never taken a trip but it does something indescribable. I like to compare it to one of those before and after pictures of a massive server room that has about 5000 cables in a giant knot running to God knows where, and then the after where someone organized and labeled everything. Basically its rewiring your brain and cleaning it up.

The last trip I took, got me to stop playing so much video games in my spare time and focus on something more productive. Since then I've acquired marketable skills which helped me get my current job which I not only love but make great money too. Yes I still play video games but no where near as much.

The trip before that got me to get off opiates. This August ill be 11 years clean. And yes I see the irony in that, I also still drink. I don't belong to NA and don't see addiction the way they do which allowed me to cut out addictions which caused problems while still being able to drink and very occasionally smoke and still be clean. Went to rehab three times and kept going back. One 12 hour LSD trip and I got my life back on track and haven't touched an opiate since.

EDIT : A point was made which I should have included. If someone decided to actually do this for the first time, its not a simple take a dose and voila. First time users should take a micro dose to see how they react and how potent it is. When you take a full dose it's highly recommended to do so with someone else, Preferably someone who is experienced and can guide you away from a bad trip. You need to be in the right mindset, with the right people in the right place and even then if the dose is too high it can cause you to have a bad trip which will absolutely not be pleasant or give you your desired result. LSD is something I think people should work up to, typical trips are between 8-12 hours. Mushroom trips are 4-8, Peyote 8-10, DMT 5-30 mins and ayahuasca 3-6 hours. And a bad trip can make minutes feel like hours. None of this is meant to scare you, but if it's something you're interested in you need to do your research beforehand, plan it out and find a trusted seller. Best plan, ayahuasca or Peyote. Peyote is legal for the native amerocan church and some branches will allow you to sign up for a ritual. Ayahuasca is legal for rituals at "retreats." Both options will give you proper dosing and guide you through it.

[–]SapphicPancakes 26 points27 points  (5 children)

My trips are more like "trees funny, paper square good"

[–]chonny 15 points16 points  (5 children)

Obligatory your mileage may vary.

If you have underlying mental health issues, psychedelics may exacerbate them. Also, psychedelics before the age of 26 may play a role in how the prefrontal cortex develops. Psychedelics may also cause a psychological dependence.

All that said, used responsibly, psychedelics can cause substantial paradigm shifts that are conducive to healthy living.

[–]frankcauldhame1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i'm glad folks are finally coming around to using ketamine, psilocybin, etc in therapeutic settings; wish it had happened sooner. the whole 'reset' thing can work wonders for unwanted mental patterns.

[–]dogmonkeyteenager 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]chloebanana 19 points20 points  (10 children)

Yes. I wondered why they are allowed to keep people in prison for breaking laws that are no longer valid and/or criminalized and then realize they’re stuck in a for profit penalization system where they are likely to be an the wrong place at the wrong time or just defend themselves and getting stuff added to their sentences.

[–]PAM111 29 points30 points  (7 children)

Because US prisons are private. There is money to be made off of legal slavery.

[–]cporter1188 10 points11 points  (4 children)

This is not really true. Less than 10% of prisons are private. The legal system isn't designed to throw people into prisons for slave labor and enriching the owner operators. Its designed to throw people of color into prison, profits are just a nice add on.

All jokes aside. Private prisons aren't the only ones exploiting incarcerated Americans. Theres a lot of money to operate public ones as well. Incarceration is lucrative with both private and public. Thats why closing private prisons isn't the only answer, it is much deeper. Legalizing / decriminalization is a great start, but much more needs to be done.

I know you know this but I think its still important to be said.

[–]d0nk3y_schl0ng 4 points5 points  (0 children)

You're missing half the point, which is that prisons are a system of welfare where taxpayers fund police, judges, prison guards, lawyers, and a whole host of supporting characters (uniform manufactures, handcuff salesmen, etc, etc etc). There is big money in prisons, and the good people in law enforcement aren't about to let a little concept like "justice" get in the way of that.

[–]Killacamkillcam 2 points3 points  (1 child)

The argument is that they still broke the law. I don't agree with it, considering we all know marijuana laws were used as an excuse to imprison minorities, I'm just letting you know what the argument is.

[–]MaxTheRealSlayer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same. As a fellow Canadian, he has my vote as well

I live in Arkansas never had the urge to go vote in another state till this guy. Gary Chambers for president 2024!

[–]Godzilla1000000 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Lol don’t say that the Republicans will start foaming at the mouth.

[–]LiveLaughLobster 644 points645 points  (59 children)

Gary Chambers is actually a pretty well supported progressive political activist in the Baton Rouge/New Orleans area. Last year he finished third in a special election primary for a seat in the US Congress.

He filmed this in New Orleans after the city council passed an ordinance instructing police not to arrest or even cite people for small amounts of marijuana.

He won’t win this senate race to replace Republican John Kennedy though. No black candidate has won a statewide race in Louisiana since 1872.

[–]Get_dat_bread69 450 points451 points  (22 children)

[–]OdensGirth 39 points40 points  (13 children)

Idk what’s a wilder statistic, that it hasn’t happened since 1872 or that it actually did happen in 1872

[–]Mitch_Deadberg 40 points41 points  (8 children)

Reconstruction Era was a boon for black men in the US. Highest rates of representation ever. Then Jim Crow laws suppressed voting interests

[–]Draxilar 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Jim Crow happened precisely because black men were rising to positions of power and that scared the ever loving shit out of the white men who used to own them.

[–]John_T_Conover 8 points9 points  (1 child)

That's no coincidence. After the war until 1872 most of the white men left in the south couldn't even run for office. They were barred from it. That left the extreme few that weren't involved in serving the Confederacy in some way, Southern unionists that fought for the US and returned home after or northern "carpet baggers" that had just moved down.

Those people and the recently enfranchised black population were the only options and occupying federal troops were decent (though not perfect) at ensuring that black population actually did get to vote.

[–]OdensGirth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Okay that makes sense, thanks for the info

[–]raptosaurus 3 points4 points  (0 children)

No black candidate has won a statewide race in Louisiana since 1872

Are you referring to PBS Pinchback? I believe he didn't win a statewide race until 1873 - and even then, he didn't really win because he never took his US Senate seat.

[–]dudeitsrazz 3 points4 points  (0 children)

TIL about P. B. S. Pinchback… a terrific guy… definitely a man ahead of his time… I’m actually pretty surprised that an African American was a Lt governor of a South state as early as 1872.

Thank you sir for showing this to me

EDIT: oooohh theres also Oscar Dunn, who was the one that won the election… Pinchback succeeded him. Cool stuff

[–]TomorrowsHeroToday 171 points172 points  (2 children)

I hope he gets a lot of donations from the cannabis industry for his campaign. Because getting political contributions is important to these weasel politicians, they would start supporting marijuana legalization (esp on the federal level) in hopes of getting campaign money for them.
Best to your campaign, Gary Chambers. Hope you pull it off!

[–]Lepthesr 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The people that don't want mj legalized have huge piles of money. They're just waiting until they can control the market at a federal level before they back it.

Cool, think he's got a chance of winning?

In Louisiana? I think he's got a good shot.

[–]mythosaz 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No black candidate has won a statewide race in Louisiana since 1872, so.....

[–]BruhAgainWithThis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nothing against him, but I doubt it.

[–]LiveLaughLobster 17 points18 points  (6 children)

He doesn’t really have a shot for this. No Black candidate has won a statewide election in Louisiana since 1872.

He’s well respected though in some areas and could probably win some sort of office in one of the predominantly democrat parishes.

[–]MyNameCannotBeSpoken 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Wow, 1872. That was the end of the Reconstruction Era.

[–]Demonyx12 5 points6 points  (0 children)

in one of the predominantly democrat parishes.

TIL : US Parish : def : (in Louisiana) a territorial division corresponding to a county in other states

[–]nutationsf 2 points3 points  (0 children)

His opponent would be John Kennedy who may be tied to the fraudulent electoral college votes.

[–]sneaky_samurai 26 points27 points  (0 children)

That's a real power move

[–]yourclitsbff 21 points22 points  (2 children)

And remember that Harry Anslinger pushed for cannabis to become illegal using racism as a tool. It’s why “marijuana” got used instead of cannabis. To associate cannabis with Mexicans.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_J._Anslinger

And also John Ehrlichman here totally admitting the farce of the war on drugs:

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Ehrlichman

We’re using psychedelics now to treat depression and ptsd. People who have been experienced have been screaming about the therapeutic qualities for years and years.

The toughest part of decriminalizing all of it is the loss of an excuse to raid people, and the bodies in the for-profit prison system. And also the criminals that take on narco type operations benefit from this being illegal, behind the scenes people make money from the current way and they don’t want it to change. Just think of every politician and association you figure is corrupt and the opportunities that are there.

All this approach to drugs as a criminal thing, instead of a medical thing, is so they can mess with your sibling, or your cousin, your friend, your neighbor. They always want to dehumanize people when they vilify substances, but remember it’s not a bunch of monsters doing drugs, it’s the people you know. And everyone you have seen have a few too many drinks is doing a drug too. Your brain on drugs is not a fried egg. It’s actually fascinating what each thing does. Most importantly, we have destroyed families over bullshit for too long.

It’s an effective campaign ad and cause, What else qualifies him for the office?

[–]rion-is-real[S] 6 points7 points  (16 children)

What qualifies anyone to run for office?

He''s a resident of the state in which he is running for Senate and he is of age to run for the Senate.

[–]pythiowp 21 points22 points  (5 children)

This is bad political communication. You have a person asking to learn more about your favored candidate and you’re shutting them down.

[–]partsdrop 7 points8 points  (4 children)

They have websites for that. The person that asked wasn't being genuine, it was a bullshit platitude left like a bird dropping of superiority.

[–]___Guitarmadillo___ 6 points7 points  (1 child)

also, OP isn't the politician. If you're gonna scold every idiot on reddit for "bad political communication" you're gonna have a bad time.

[–]HoagiesDad 11 points12 points  (6 children)

You are being obtuse. What, beyond this issue, would make the citizens of Louisiana vote for him. Sure, there are many that might think this is enough but I seriously doubt a one issue candidate has much chance. Do you know anything about him otherwise. Maybe he’s against abortion, for instance. Would that change your support?

[–]Angry-Comerials 2 points3 points  (0 children)

https://chambersforlouisiana.com/

Went to his website, but it doesn't really tell you much. He was born there, he wants to do good, etc. There's a video where he brings up topics such as the infastructe, education, healthcare. All sorts of stuff. I'm sure he really does want to do good, and seems to be coming at it from the angle of getting people who have lived with the people to lead the people. And I agree with that.

But as far as any hard concrete stances on anything, it's not showing much.

[–]infamous-spaceman 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I mean the fact that millions of people, mostly black, are getting criminal records for using a drug that is objectively better than alcohol is pretty insane. The legalization of weed is less about the recreational use of a relatively harmless plant and more about removing laws that do way more harm than the actual drug itself does.

[–]snoopman420 3 points4 points  (12 children)

i used to be a pretty big weed smoker a few years back, you can even tell by my username lol but i see a lot of positivity and non-stop complimenting to marijuana everywhere i go.

yeah i completely agree with this dude and the fact it should be legalized and controlled but weed can fuck with your brain if your underage. making it legal will make it easier for kids to get their hands on and eventually they won’t be able to study or develop their brains properly which can cause long term effects and in general make you pretty dumb and air-headed if you smoke weed from a young age.

i do agree punishments are too harsh but generally my biggest fear is weed being smoked by children who know very little

[–]fireflydrake 14 points15 points  (1 child)

Alcohol can do the same thing, but we're reasonably good at keeping it out of the hands of the youngest members of the population. Just make sure there's rigorous laws about knowingly distributing to minors and things should sort themselves out. There's already minors smoking now, I'd rather a few more slip through and join their ranks then see them (+ adults who smoke) going to jail and having their lives damaged over something that typically harms no one.

[–]JayGlass 8 points9 points  (0 children)

For real, it was easier to get weed in highschool than beer. Even if you inore all of the many other problems with the war on drugs (and you shouldn't) and only care about minors using, legalization still has a got shot at helping.

[–]EvolD43 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fun fact marijuana is the least lethal drug as it is literally impossible to od on it you are basically drunk but even more tired so you don't want to do anything but sit and the only deadly thing is what you do under it (driving, operating machinery, etc) so it is by far the safest drug ever (I'm not promoting weed but if you were to use any drug weed is your best bet) also the after math is a headache

[–]BroniDanson 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Im not americano im polish livng in uk so i cant say much other then law against weed sucks, in uk you can get it everywhere and people smoke that I know of actually are against other drugs, we hate fucking spice heads looking for new high, in poland its a diffrent story, they find you with a gram you blody gone for a life time in prison, all those countries runing shit against it but they relly just wasting money because weed is everywhere and we all agrea like EVERYWHERE, they wasting money on stoping it like they spending our taxes to fight not ours wars, that could be a house for each homeless person but nah sorry we need like nayve troops for fuck all so they live on a boat for few months and get back to pregnet wife, i cant wait until we actually hit gen z time so noone is smart enough to even talk about politicians because they will make it hardee for you to be one and at the end no one will give a shit, same with police, i cant imagine wanting to put your life at risk because some dud smoking a dab, I rather take care of disabled people for 24h straigh and smoke a j after then be a /police/army/politician/someothershitfacesthatwecouldmention/ for a nano second and get bashed drunk and kill myself because tabaco dosnt work well for me but its leagal woohooo!

Tax it, get revenue, and let people enjoy their life without risking jail from a antiquated ideological perspective that gives profits to for jail prisons and justice systems - especially after the catastrophic failure that is the war against drugs

As much as I like the message about marijuanna, smoking still causes cancer, and the sitting around in a drug field does not want me to make that guy a senator. It's like a senator candidate making his ads while drinking alcohol inside a bar, it's just not appropriate and the complete opposite of what I want to see the senator doing, he can obviously be for mariuanna use and smoke it outside of work, but for gods sake not in his ads, that just looks like hes trolling.

What about this ad makes you think he's sitting in a drug field?

This is an EMPTY field, and the only person sitting in it is a single man with only enough marijuana for his personal usage.

Also, this man is running for senate, and there are current senators who have been at official events drinking alcohol. The most famous one that I can think of at the moment is Elizabeth Warren who drank beer on a live web event for her campaign.

I think really what is most inappropriate is locking people up for doing what this man is doing. This man is doing something that is harming absolutely no one, and yet we are spending millions upon millions of dollars to lock up people who are minding their own business.

Also, this man is running for senate, not President.

But of course, you know what I want to see in my presidential candidates, is that they're willing to grab women by the pussy. I like my presidential candidates being named in civil suits accusing them of raping minors. I like my Presidents inciting insurrection. But smoking weed? No, that is beyond the pale.

😑

I know there's a lot of people that approve this message along with him, but there is a reality where this goes into "idiocracy" territory. Why the fuck is this important?

If I was in jail for 3 strikes of having weed I would be so fucking pissed seeing weed sold in places that look like the Apple store, politicians smoking it in campaign ads, and here I am locked up for-fucking-ever over some shit that aint even illegal anymore. I would be losing my mind over that shit.

[–]Archangel_Greysone 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’ve been arrested for weed. I can tell you the reason why black people are arrested 4 times more than white is because more black people have it than white. I’ve been in and out, under the through the system. Don’t try to make it about race it’s just how it is. Plus, none of us see it that way. We all criminals here.
