I can't think of anything that could go wrong with that idea. Surely she is kidding, right? Oh the old lady is having dementia set in.

She should be completely focused on rolling out COVID vaccinations instead of anything else. She must have ADD or dementia to take her focus off the state's COVID vaccination debacle -- last in the nation according to one survey.

She's not kidding, this is typical liberal crap. They want to legalize drugs then ask for tax money to pay for treatment, treatment that rarely works. All you have to do for an example is look at the case manager of Nuvista who was arrested for drugs.

And where is the local media on this, it's been barely covered. And this place was a treatment center.

Yep, the guv's idea, well, what could go wrong!!

Just checked Nuvista's website and Trevor Robinson is still showing on there. This is laughable if it wasn't so sad about where we as a country are headed

This "plan" has the same thinking behind it as claiming approving the lottery would finance education.
It would fail if there were any chance at all of it passing.
Which there is not.
Where does stuff like this come from?

I just left a parents meeting for parents of kids who are in rehab. The common denominator is starting with pot. Some never graduated from it but even with just pot it was all consuming and destroyed lives. 15 year old kids setting their alarm clock to smoke in before school, smoke during school, smoke after school, and live in a constant "high" in order to remove themselves from any anxiety or uncomfortable situations that being a teen involves. They're addicted to being high. Pot these kids are vaping is not the pot from 20 years ago. It's potent. It's really potent and it's easy to vape any place at any time without anyone knowing. They are doing it in their room, in their car, at school, in class, and every place in-between and parents, teachers, and cops don't know any better. The result, kids being addicted to "pot", destroying any drive for school, friends or activities, developmentally becoming stagnant, and destroying every relationship around them. It's sickening that our communities and our governor are condoning this. That's exactly what they are doing be introducing medical marijuana.

We are going to look back 10 years from know and say to ourselves - what the F$)* were we thinking. We are creating a permanent underclass of mostly young men who are drug addicted and can barely function all in the name of what? More tax dollars? Giving people to ease their "anxiety" by living an altered and harmful reality? A handful of medically needy patients getting pain relief? A bunch of 70's stoners getting to toke every night and giggle as they watch reruns of Giligan's Island? Most adults can handle this - they've grown up and most can manage their use. It's the undeveloped teen and early 20-somethings who are forgoing every major developmental milestone and stuck as immature, irresponsible, and possibly dangerous kids. SAD SAD SAD

I see the devious hands of Governor Kelly's handlers on this. Kansas has privatized Medicaid. Look at the companies who benefit from that. Centene is one of them. Look at the leader of Centene in KS for the privatized Medicaid program - he is huge supporter of this idiot, far-left Governor. Just say no to Medicaid expansion in KS. Say no to privatized Medicaid in KS. These are some very evil, vile actors in this state supporting this far-left, communist governor (Governer "Lockdown"). Now she is "Governor Pothead". Send this pothead granny fool packing in 2022!!

YOU DUMB FUCKS THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS ADDICTION!!!!! IT'S BEHAVIOR. WHEN THEY PUT DRUG ADDICTS IN JAIL THEY SURVIVE WITHOUT THE DRUGS...AND THEIR BEHAVIOR HAS TO CHANGE. WHEN YOU LEARN THE TRUTH ABOUT DRUGS YOU WILL UNDERSTAND.
AS FAR AS KANSAS LEGALIZING MED MJ...GREAT IDEA. THE FLOW OF POT FROM COLORADO AND MISSOURI IS HUGE INTO KANSAS. HIWAY PATROL SAYS 30-40% OF CARS COMING INTO KANSAS FROM COLORADO ARE CARRYING POT. LEGALIZE AND INSURE 300,000 ALL AT NO COST TO THE STATE OR TAXPAYERS.
70%...YES 70% OF KANSAS APPROVE OF THIS...IT WILL PASS EASILY!!!

^^TL/DR. Learn where the CAPS lock key is you fucking loser.

8:31 - Spend some time in a middle school or high school, talk to the kids and see how they use marijuana know and talk to their families. It's absolutely destroying lives. Does it destroy every kid who uses? Nope. Does it destroy the lives of half the kids who use it? Nope. Does it destroy the lives of 10-20% of them - YES. The tax benefits pale in comparison to the economic loss our economy will suffer as we normalize 10-20% of our population whose coping mechanisms to live life are replaced by being stoned, stunted, and underutilized citizens.

As for your "DUMB F*&(s" comment - awesome way to start a conversation. I'm sure your grandma would be proud.
