Trump’s First Marijuana Speech…(time travel version 1.3)
“So I guess you heard?
To thunderous applause “Trump, Trump, Trump!”
“I’m a-gonn-a mar-ijuann-a!!!!!!”
Roars, applause, the floor literally shakes in the arena…
“OK, OK calm down…There’s a serious side to this, two or three really…”
The roar settles down as he speaks but sporadically someone yells at the top of their lungs “TRUUUMP”
“Here’s the serious side. Drugs are not good for our country.”
Someone if the audience screams “AAAHHHHHHHHH” they take him out.
“See what I’m saying” Trump quips…
Big laugh, Trump continues: “I don’t want this to be seen as an admission drugs are good for our country, because they aren’t — but marijuana is a helper drug like aspirin — that the government basically got in the wrong category. Think of it like that. I’ll tell you what – if the pharmaceuticals could have patented marijuana – it would have been legal a long time ago.”
“Seriously Trump continues “If you wrote a list of the things it is helpful with – and took off the Pot name, everybody in the legal and medical community would think it was a wonder drug. I don’t think the Pot is as dangerous as alcohol, and this — I can tell you from life experience.
“Now Jeff Sessions did not agree with me on this…because I didn’t tell him!”
Huge LAUGH/ROAR…followed by maniacal “Lock HER UP, Lock HER UP, Lock HER UP!” floor chants.
“Ok, OK, Trump attempts to restore order. The pitch in the hall has reached a fever. They would follow him into battle at this point.
“Where it was already legalized it has lowered drug overdoses in every other drug category – legal and not legal – following when it was legalized. I wouldn’t have done this, if I thought it would hurt America.”
Big Applause; “Trump, Trump, Trump” chants break out again.
Raises his hands for quiet, gets it.
“But I have another reasons, this is a States Rights issue, that’s right, I told you that during the campaign, that was a promise, and I keep my promises!” The states that have legalized this, need to have those processes respected by the federal government and that’s why we need to change the law. I’m calling on Congress to get this done.”
“So muucch winning, are you tired of it YET?”
“NNOOO” they answer…
“Me Neither” Trump throws his arms open and the roar doesn’t subside for a full 3 minutes.
