Left screams “racism” ahead of pot legalization: “White dudes” run marijuana industry

David MenziesMission Specialist


Like most major cities in North America, Toronto is home to a free “alternative” weekly called Now Magazine that serves as a playbook for the social justice warrior set.

The latest affront NOW SJWs are bringing to our attention is the number of white males in the cannabis business.

Writer Lisa Campbell notes:

“When it comes to racial diversity the numbers are even more shocking. Almost all of the country’s 80-plus licensed producers are run by white dudes. The reality is that licensed producers push diversity as a marketing tool, but don’t walk the walk.”

Oddly, the article then profiles several women and people of colour who are in the marijuana business.

Cannabis is going to be fully legal soon and everyone has a right to make a living, but why does Campbell have to couch an article about diversity with such bitterness towards “white dudes”?

Not to be outdone on marijuana and race, the Toronto Star’s Shree Paradkar contributes a column entitled, “A reckoning on Black people and marijuana is a long time coming” demanding blanket amnesty for all past marijuana crimes since a disproportionate number of those with criminal records for cannabis possession, are black.

Someone should tell Shree and her colleague at Now Magazine that if everything is racist – including the impending legalization of pot – then nothing is racist.

Weed legalization is nonsense, because the next step is to legalize all other drugs. The NDP dude with the pointy hat already said so. Of course, the government wants all the business. So, these idiots want to establish business relationships with the Columbian drug cartels to import cocaine, eh? I think drugs ruin enough lives already. I realize that the drug trade will still go on illegally, but a government has an obligation to show backbone and not get behind something obviously wrong just to make a few bucks. No to legalization of any drug, including weed.

The left is racist. They see skin color in everything. Normal people, aka conservatives, don’t care what color the person is we buy something from and whether some sort of quota was met when hiring. If they want quotas, then make sure that at least half of employees working at Chinese restaurants are white. The same for Halal shops. Also, women are woefully underrepresented in construction, sewage truck services, oil pipeline work in Arctic conditions, car repair, heavy machinery maintenance, manual factory labor, just to name a few. If you want quotas, then get women into these fields now!

Pot is being made legal to provide the government with another money stream and nothing more. The “Pot heads” think the boy blunder is making pot legal for them but in reality it’s all about Justin Mohammed Trudope, the Clown Prince of the Muslims and how much money he can scam before his time runs out.

Don’t laugh to soon, You guys. When the Trud Persons Lazy Jane becomes legal, just watch the Auto Insurance get high.

It’s interesting that the ones screaming racism & looking for racism everywhere are so often virtue signaling white leftists. Certainly there are some other races represented in their rainbow of race hate but the vast majority appear to be white. By their own logic this makes them horrible racists & for any of them that are males, well they should just shoot themselves if they buy their own narrative.

Menzies needs to get woke about the amnesty issue. See, I can talk lefty, too!

Dig a little deeper. One finds the “White Dudes” are mostly Lieberals, or Lieberal connected. Cheech and Chong? One of my favorite quotes was about smoking.
“Man, when they took out one of my lungs, I cut my smoking in half!”

Everybody is free to get into it… i’m really tired of having to make excuses for everybody… Why aren’t there more Japanese doing it… What about Vietnamese… What about the tamales or the Philippines and so on and so on and so on… Who fucking cares maybe these people would sooner sit around and wait for a finished product as opposed to be involved in the growing process..!!
But I do like the idea of blanket pardons..!!
