It is a sad situation that despite the associated problems, so many people simply must have their drug of choice.
However, that subject link has little to do with the situation in Evanston. The politicos in Evanston not only seem to be dropping their resistance to certain drugs, but actually aid the addicts in their pursuit of them.
The politicians idea is to sell dope in order to pay "reparations" (here we go again) to people who never were a slave..but with a new twist.
In this case they will get the reparations money to pay for slavery..from folks who are currently in slavery...to drugs.
At least in this case, they won't be robbing the money from people who never had anything to do with slavery..they couldn't have, 150 years ago.
From the article;
There is a lot of money in banks. But banks are notoriously unwilling to part with it. Evanston already has $218 million in unfunded pension liabilities and has seen its bonds downgraded over its finances.
But there’s lots of money in drugs. And the People’s Republic of Evanston will use the sales tax money from pot to fund racial reparations. If there’s anything that will save Evanston, it’s selling drugs and giving the proceeds to black people to apologize for the slavery which never existed there.
If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn't thinking.. (Gen George S. Patton)
