HIGH ON HER OWN SUPPLY? Pelosi moves to federally legalize weed while neglecting COVID aid

After months of gridlock on Capitol Hill over a coronavirus stimulus package, Nancy Pelosi is showing America what matters most to her: cannabis and big cats. 

After months of gridlock on Capitol Hill over a coronavirus stimulus package, Nancy Pelosi is showing America what matters most to her: cannabis and big cats. 

Democratic leadership announced that a bill to federally legalize marijuana will be taken to the House floor Wednesday, while another bill will be reviewed to ban breeding and private ownership of tigers and other big cats. 

Tiger King and cannabis before coronavirus stimulus for families that are suffering? 

Check your priorities, Nancy.  

Republicans, many of whom are big critics of marijuana legalization, took to Twitter to blast Pelosi for her backwards priorities. 

“This week, your House Democrat majority is tackling the tough issues by holding a vote on legalizing pot and banning tiger ownership,” House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy wrote Monday. “Nothing for small businesses. Nothing for reopening schools. Nothing on battling the pandemic. Just cannabis and cats.” 

After speaking with the media’s president-elect Joe Biden, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said it is a priority to get a stimulus package passed during Congress’ lame-duck session. 

“Secretary Mnuchin said he would be reviewing the proposal Leader Schumer and I made to Leader McConnell and Leader McCarthy last night and the bipartisan Senate proposal unveiled today,” Pelosi said in a statement Tuesday night. “Additional COVID relief is long overdue and must be passed in this lame duck session.”

But, instead, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said the chamber will be considering multiple marijuana bills, including the Marijuana Opportunity, Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act, and voting will take place Wednesday through Friday.

  1. I can’t believe it! Pelosi actually doing something RIGHT! The Federal government never had authority to outlaw marijuana in the first place. (Remember how the US had to amend the constitution to get authority to outlaw alcohol? Same thing…) I don’t use the stuff and have no desire to — but the Feds have no right to criminalize it.

  2. Frankly right now no American who voted for our president gives a crap about any of this right now. We’re fighting to save the guy we voted for and to SAVE AMERICA FROM GLOBALISM and China, but where are the Republicans helping any of us with this? Its so obvious our chances of winning with the entire govt corruption that has spread like a cancer thru every agency and elected officials are so small. The ONLY way I see we win this is thru the Supreme Court, or a second civil war….and I do pray that we won’t have to do the latter of the two, but there are those preparing for that scenario I’m sure. I’ve always know American politics were corrupt but this is beyond cancerous. I feel like our only chance is Divine intervention…God bless every patriot out there fighting to save our great country.

  3. The Democrats are unlikely to lift a finger to help desperate Americans until ‘Old Joe’ is safely wheeled up the White House ramp. That way they can blame all the current suffering and economic disaster on “Orange Man Bad” and emerge as benevolent saviors with some pitiful relief package come February. Not to say I’ve been happy with Trump’s performance to date. The moment his campaign saw the election was being stolen he should have declared martial law, froze the process, and rerun the whole thing with in-person voting and paper receipts. Everyone talks about how important our constitutional republic is, but how many are actually willing to defend it?

  4. What’ѕ up eѵeryone, it’s my first pay a ᴠisit at this weЬ site, and article is in fɑct fruitful designed for me, keep up posting these contеnt.
