The great Ok Karen of white middle class privilege speaks…
The pro-legalise movement comes largely from adults advocating on the basis of their own experiences, arguing the case for people like them.
I’ve never listened to Kate Hawkesby in my life, so why would I start now over cannabis?
Firstly, fuck you Kate. The manner in which prohibition has been wielded like a huge weapon against sections of our community who look nothing like you means people like us have an obligation to step up and demand change!
Secondly, Shouldn’t we be fucking outraged by these prohibition fascists?
Shouldn’t we be furious that the American Religious Right are interfering in our domestic politics?
Shouldn’t we be incandescent with fucking rage that the State have used the prohibition of a product far less damaging than alcohol or tobacco to imprison, arrest, prosecute, punish, stain and mutilate generations of our fellow citizens for a ‘crime’ that was always about control and never about our safety?
Fuck the prohibitionists with their failed war on drugs!
I’m not being lectured by an alcoholic society on what substance I consume and I’m sure as fuck not going to tolerate being told what to do by moralistic cowards who dare use my safety to continue their systems of control!
And that goes triple for a privileged morals like Kate fucking Hawkesby!
We should be collectively outraged that we have allowed the State to have this prohibition power for as long as they have. Cannabis is a civil rights issue, the State has crushed hundreds of thousands of our fellow citizens for decades upon decades to enforce a law that was always about control and not our welfare.
How dare they and how dare we allow them to get away with it!
You can enrol on the day of the election so there are no excuses this time.
Don’t drag yourself to the ballot box comrades, march there in furious anger and tell the State and Kate Hawkesby to fuck off out of our collective lives.
