You know this is true, don’t you?
You are not allowed to say certain things, aloud..
You can think them all you like, at least for a while
but eventually, if they keep stealing freedom of speech, that too will be taboo..
You are not allowed to say that you are against medical marijuana
You are not allowed to say that you are against legalizing marijuana..
You know it’s true, don’t you?
Perhaps the ‘why’ of it is the question or the problem. .. why?
You are not allowed to say, “Don’t legalize marijuana” because society forbids you to go against anything that sick people need or want…
And since (Some) cancer survivors demand that marijuana be legal for them, they insist that you are
you are not allowed to say that you are against legalizing marijuana
But, Birginia, why?
Why must we curtail speech because you need something?
Why must we curtail speech because you want something?
Isn’t my health, that includes my voice, just as important as your health?
Aren’t you aware that people have died without their voice?
You are not allowed to say, “Don’t legalize Marijuana” .
Watch out there, seriously, you are not allowed to say that.
I’ll tell you What, you can say, “Legalize marijuana ” and I can say, “Don’t legalize marijuana” and that is okay for both of us.
You have your free speech and I have my free speech.
Now, that’s fair.
But maybe you are not interested in being fair.
Maybe you are only interested in blaming others for you.
You have a voice.
I have a voice.
You have a vote.
I have a vote.
Let’s be fair.
You can’t outshout me in this debate; that doesn’t work at all.
Truth is all voices are the same.
Those that shout to win, win only the battle.
Shouting silences someone only temporarily.
Ahh, a light bulb goes off in the darkness of night.
Let’s both talk at the same level…
Now, that’s better.
As I turn around, I quietly say, in an almost invisible whisper…
“D o n ‘ t legalize m a r i j u a n a ” . ..
Now, don’t hate me for my voice…
That’s the beginning of healing…
