Mandeville, LA – Exclusive Transcript – “If you smell a dope plant being burned somewhere nearby where you live in Colorado, as Lord Christopher Monckton said to me one day when I smoked a cigar in his studio and he was shocked to see someone in the United States actually consume tobacco indoors – he said: I love that smell.

Mike: Pharmaceutical drug manufacturers are the ones that put the most money into trying to kibosh legal marijuana sales, because they don’t want to have to compete with something that you can grow in your backyard, just like the same modus operandi is what guides many of the major agriculture producers in proposing things that make it more difficult to have local farmers’ markets, for example. There was this imbecilic policy that was passed a couple years back that purported to save us from those evil, hedonistic, despicable, irresponsible, careless farmers out there that might bring tomatoes to market that haven’t been USDA inspected.

You ever see these little scrubby things you can get at Wal-Mart or any grocery store, little vegetable scrubbers? You just run that thing over the top of the cucumber and bammo, if it did have some bad stuff on it, you can scrub it off and it’s not there any longer.

In any event, the power to tax is the power to destroy. Once the course or the tide has turned and the legalization frenzy cannot be stopped, the next step will be: We’ve got to gain control of this somehow. How’re we gonna do it? Let’s tax it. That’s exactly what Colorado has done.
