Creating scarcity…

…legislating at the state level is different than local cities[?]… the idea that another human or government can intervene in this unalienable and sacred birthright seems ludicrous, as ludicrous as if the government suddenly suggested it would control and limit the number of times a parent could hug their child. Few things seem as fundamentally sovereign as seeking to heal one’s mental health trauma or explore ones consciousness with plants and fungi that grow naturally from the ground.

A priest retains his power by mystifying the process of connecting with God. Scientists retain their priestly status by complicating, not simplifying, explanations. And so too, elected officials, government bureaucrats, and lobbyists retain their power and control by making policy-making more complicated and inaccessible. And the corporate-profiteers prey on this increasing complexity to obfuscate and keep hidden from public view the acts which harm the commons… they will tell you that “limits” are a politically expedient necessity. They are not. We’ve proven this by getting 53 out of 54 councilmember votes to date to support our resolutions without limits for personal use through education campaigns in various cities throughout the US.
