Nevada Declares State of Emergency for Running Low on Weed
There's been a steady push from hippie types to legalize the marijuanas. Because all other causes pale in comparison to their right to toke up and cut their IQs in half. Priorities. A few states already caved and legalized the sticky, to somewhat mixed results. One of the latest states to do so is Nevada.
Plot twist: they've got a huge crisis on their hands. They're running out of herb at an alarming rate. So alarming, in fact, they declared a state of emergency. Yes, you read that right.
Nevada state officials declared a state of emergency after stores that sell recreational marijuana reported that their supply is running out just less than two weeks after the drug went on sale legally.
Gov. Brian Sandoval, R-Nev., issued the state of emergency on Friday, which will allow state officials to decide on new rules that could ease the shortage of marijuana, according to Fox 13 Now.
Nevada’s Department of Taxation released a statement that said it will contemplate emergency regulations that would permit liquor wholesalers to cash in on the marijuana sales.
Wait, you call that an emergency?
Call me crazy, but methinks Nevada is blowing things out of proportion. A state of emergency is usually reserved for impending disasters. Like Amy Schumer performing a striptease. I'm pretty sure getting low on bud does not qualify. It's also overly paranoid. Which is coincidentally a side effect of marijuana use. Is the state government getting high on their own supply?
Could you just imagine the fallout if their dispensaries ran out of weed completely? It would be an extinction level event. Thousands upon thousands of Nevadans would venture away from their couches, eat less junk food, and buy a few articles of clothing that aren't made from hemp. The horror.
This is what passes for a priority in Nevada. Well this, pushing absurd anti-gun bills, and registering illegals to vote. Sounds like a Mecca for buttmunch leftists. And here we were mocking California and New York almost exclusively. How snobby are we?
There are a gazillion crap tons of other issues more important than stockpiling kush. Like deporting the bad hombres who're running tricks on legal citizens. Ideas, just ideas.
If ever you needed an example of how governments are slam-packed with incompetent dunces, this is it. "We're running low on MARY JANE, PULL THE PANIC ALARMS!"
Besides, weed isn't all it's cracked up to be.
