23 Apr The Cannabis Bandwagon
Joe Montana, the four time Super Bowl champion San Francisco 49er quarter back, announced last week that he has invested with a California cannabis company for the second time in two years. His first investment took place in 2017 with a company called; Herb. That sounds innocuous enough? Doesn’t it? The acceptance of cannabis has now gone mainstream, hence the past fear of the hallucinate tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is an old wives tale, a myth?
The timing of Montana’s investment and announcement via the news media was not a coincidence. The Super Bowl took place about two weeks before the announcement and he, being a four time Super Bowl champion quarter back; all of this combined has influence and impact. Many will follow him and make a cannabis investment despite the warnings of the neuro-pulmonary medical profession.
It is a faction to say that the electorate of California, and, all of North America have been conditioned to accept the unacceptable. The legalization of marijuana is an indicator, a critical part of how the electorate has become benumbed, dizzied, to accept that which is detrimental in both a spiritual and secular sense.
Pre-Colombian Mexicans benumbed themselves with the hallucinate derivative of the peyote, the pipiltzintl and the ololinhqui plants. – The pre-Colombian Incas benumbed themselves with the above mentioned hallucinates along with coco leafs.
The Aztec empire of an estimated five million people with a sizable defense force were defeated by the Conquistador Cortez with about 500 solders and 300 regional recruits. Without a doubt European diseases such as the common cold, measles, mumps and small pox, that the Spaniards were, for the most part, immune and carried with them assisted the demise of the Aztec and Inca empires. That said, the native Americans would have recovered soon enough to regain what the Spaniards had taken. What was the other factor that assisted the Spaniards to the detriment of the natives of Mexico – Latin and the western part of South America?
The Inca empire of an estimated 10 million people (of wider distribution) were subdued by one of the most hated man in human history, Pizarro with about 200 Spaniards. Amid this conquest, he had to contend with a mutiny within his ranks.
It can be assured that when the players of Super Bowl L111 trotted out on to the field, not one of them had partook with any hallucinative.
When I was a Congressional Candidate during the last mid-term election year of 2018, the Saturday hours from 1000 – 1400 were occupied at the corner of Marin and Georgia streets where all of the other politicians were designated; the Vallejo Farmers Market. – Amid the politicians were a City Council candidate with signs – that were posted all over town – that, “Leadership,” and, “Forward Vallejo,” were the themes. This Council member is also, like Montana and former Speaker of the House John Boehner, aboard the cannabis financial bandwagon.
Be that as it is, this missive is being written aboard a Navy auxiliary tug-supply boat which is pier-side, Mina Salmon, Kingdom of Bahrain. – I can say without any exceptions, that I and my fellow mariners earn an honest wage.
Can the cannabis investors and promoters claim the same?
