We are, of course, right now in the middle of a presidential campaign that is raging right now. There is one topic that really doesn’t usually make the agenda in the presidential campaign, and that is the drug war and medical marijuana as well. A number of the democratic candidates, most of them now have just under political pressure, have come out in favor of some form of marijuana legalization. In the meantime, the Trump administration seems to have backpedaled. Donald Trump was always a social libertarian before he really got involved in politics. He was very critical of drug war. Now, after he became president, for whatever reason, the Trump Administration seems to be pulling back not only on recreational marijuana, but on medical marijuana.
This, of course, is always a secondary issue even for the Democrats, we want Medicaid for all, we want lower drug prices. Everybody wants something. Have a little freedom. Fact of the matter is, whatever the government decides to do is going to be extremely difficult terms of reforming really insanely expensive American medical system. Americans pay more (twice as much) per capita or health care as the second place in the world. Our end outcomes are nowhere near the other countries. We’re paying a whole lot of money and we’re not getting our money’s worth. And hence we have all these debates about.
