All of those “420 blaze it/legalize it now!” faggots look real dumb now, don’t they?
They thought “legalize it” meant cheaper weed. In fact, it means much more expensive weed, with the difference going to the government and… apparently to the black people who were put out of work by legalization.
We’re stacking wokeness here as the woke begin to learn that their woke policies are totally NOT cash money and are, in fact, cringe and gay.
Lawmakers in a Chicago suburb have approved using sales tax revenue made from recreational marijuana purchases to establish a reparations program in the area, the Pioneer Press reported.
Evanston, Ill., aldermen voted for the program – which will provide training for jobs and other benefits – as a way to help the city’s black population stay in the town. Evanston’s black population decreased from 22.5 percent of the population in 2000 to 16.9 percent in 2017.
Ald. Robin Rue Simmons, who proposed the reparations bill, told the Press that the move will “directly invest in black Evanston,” and the money will be invested in the community that the “war on drugs … unfairly policed and damaged.”
Under Illinois state law, recreational marijuana dispensaries will become legal next year.
Ahead of the change Evanston lawmakers voted 8-1 to permit, tax and appropriate the money made from the marijuana sales to pay for the program that they say will help address the lingering institutional effects of slavery and discrimination.
The new fund will be capped at $10 million, and estimates project the new tax could rake in $500,000 to $750,000 annually.
The upside: this should pretty much kill the “weed is cool” meme for Zoomers that was propagated by Boomers, Gen Xers and Millennials. Forking over your mom’s money so that the government can fund more irate negro activism doesn’t strike me as very cash money.
If anything, it might convince more people to quit smoking weed.
But if the blacks wanted to tax something to get mo’ money fo’ dem programs, why not tax vices that affect the black community to improve their lot? This is Progressivism 101.
Can anyone honestly say that taxing KFC and menthols wouldn’t do a world of good for the black community?
The idea of taxing the vices of one ethnic group and using the money to fund another group is something new, really.
Potheads should probably rise up because this is blatantly unfair!
But they’re potheads, so…
I wouldn’t hold my breath.
