Kenny Yuko, Furious MMJ Advocate

You go, Kenny Yuko! Vent your righteous fury.






From Radio WOSU:

Democratic Senate Minority Leader Kenny Yuko has been pushing for medical marijuana for years. He says officials from the state agency that oversees the medical marijuana program have told him none of the cultivators licensed by the state are growing marijuana right now and only one is close to starting the process.

“To say I was angry is an understatement,” Yuko says.

    If your state has not gone legal and you sit there watching OTHER states rake in millions of tax dollars, you can’t help but think your politicians are slow and stupid. It’s MEDICINE, people! It actually works. And it eliminates the need for addictive, synthetic drugs for many.

    Half the country is awake in 2018, the other half is a sorry collection of ostriches whose heads are buried.

    WY isn’t one! They’re dragging their feet! I got a letter responding back from one of the Politicians in my state, telling me he was “strongly against it”, “Will continue to vote against it”. And then had the nerve to tell me “There are 4 synthetic forms out there, why don’t you use one of them?” That’s tells me all I need to know about his intellect… He has since been voted out. Yay! Now it’s up to Liz Cheney to educate Enzi and Barrasso before her terms up.
