SURVIVING IN BROOKLYN: A DAILY THING

So for the summer I’ll be on the east coast pushing my blog, making some appearances on…stuff (super secret as of right now) and “excited” is definitely an understatement.

I’ve changed the title of this post about 3 different times. Thinking of titles is top 3 things I hate doing, low-key, right next to folding clothes and unclogging a sink full of old dish water and food. I cringe. My boy Smiley (@picasso_vs_plato on instagram) decided to comment on an instragram picture with, “Surviving in Brooklyn new daily blog post? How about it”….WHAT! YES! As simple as it sounds it works for me and boom, here we go….

This morning I decided to cook breakfast and tried to give my boyfriend a better outlook on eggs. He hates eggs, so much…and that’s something no one would change but like I said, I tried. I made a chorizo and spinach scramble along with some parmesan grits and mango. Gave the rest of the mango to a guy that was working in the yard. He looked at me like I was fucking crazy. Like I sprinkled crack on the mango. He must not be used to a strange young woman giving away fruit on a hot day.

It’s almost 3 o’clock and I feel like a bum. My mind is still stuck around 11am. I didn’t even do my morning gongyo and other prayers. It won’t hit me that I’m in another state until a week from now. It won’t hit me that I quit my job until I receive my last check from Claire’s. Good thing I saved up. I’m ready to explore once my full belly becomes the opposite. I guess I should get myself together too…

Off to rule the world? That’s coming soon.

TRICKY MARIJUANA LAW IN D.C.

 

dcpotfight

Slowly but surely medical Majiuana is becoming legal in a few states, most recently in Georgia. Now, let’s focus our attention on D.C. and their dilemma. November of 2014 floats around and both the voters and the council says that it’s perfectly fine for citizens to keep about two oz. on them AND they can nurture up to 6 cannibus plants within their home. Regardless of that, by federal law, it’s still totally illegal to buy and/or sell it. I mean, lets be real –the government can’t tax from it, just yet. Unless is medical. And of course congress don’t want to legalize it because they feel the effects are far too close to what you may feel when doing other illegal drugs.

So the District of Columbia have been GIVING away seeds to people who are interested in growing. There’s little cute bags being passed out and its OKAY! At one point, within 9 years there’s been 8 million majiuana related arrest and tax payers around the nation came out of pocket 32.4 billion dollars. Over 70 years ago the Majiuana tax act was put in place basically criminalizing the drug. Look at us now. Progression.

NANCY STAWP

Two days ago Nancy Grace decided to take yet another shot at marijuana usage and invited rapper 2 Chainz to join the debate. Little did she know Tauheed Epps (which is 2 Chainz real name) brought his A game along with facts and owned the debate #TRUU. The full interview is below and from my point of view what is being shown below is obviously opinion vs. fact.

I think what’s crazy about debates such as this is that someone is always playing the blame game and brings in the tender “what if it was your child” argument. Even with the legendary Bill O’ Rielly vs. Cam’ron & Dame Dash interview fingers were being pointed when the REAL issue is home-grown. Continue Reading
