I still have a medical cannabis card in my state so I don’t pay recreational pot taxes

It’s nice to see some of the positive political changes in this country over the past 100 years. While we have a long way to go, people had to be a certain gender and race just to have the right to vote back at the beginning of the previous century. However, some things like the right to marry based on love instead of gender took as long as the last decade to finally become legal in this country. I remember when one state after the next started to legalize same-sex marriage only for the Supreme Court to decide on a landmark case that would legalize it nationwide. However, the demographics of the Supreme Court have changed so much in the ensuing years that I don’t know when we’ll see more social progress like this for another generation or longer. If we wanted the Supreme Court to way in on the constitutional legality of the war on drugs, specifically marijuana, then we better guess again and retain our hope for more realistic expectations. Realistically, it’s going to take more of these states passing laws to legalize both medical and recreational marijuana if we want to see it legal in all states. For instance, I live in a state where you can get access to cannabis for both purposes. However, people like me with medical marijuana cards do not have to pay recreational cannabis taxes in this state. That’s specifically why I retain my medical marijuana card even though it costs me money every year to renew it with the state. It allows me to save on every single cannabis purchase.
