The impetus for this came from a thread over at Delaware Liberal, discussing crime around Adams 4 Shopping Center in Wilmington, in the number one unsafe city in America…

Those of you that follow me regularly know that every once in a while I get an idea and run with it, just to see how viable it works. I did so here and you are welcome to ride along….

Is there a religion out there that centers around imbibing alcohol? If so, I haven’t heard of one… I would think things would get rather tense, after inhibitions wore off and everyone started getting sick… But there definitely are religions centered around marijuana and peyote… two natural highs…

So the thought occurred to me… What would Wilmington be like if you gave everyone free pot? Don’t even worry about the cost if the city bought it… instead of burning it in WV, the DEA could just cut in and put in on a Norfolk Southern train car… so consider it a free remedy… What would Wilmington be like?

Have you ever shot a gun while on a marijuana high? In fact, the thought of pulling out a gun never occurs to you. And with free pot, the walls especially in summer seem to be closing in, so everyone in the neighborhood, would congregate outside on the streets… And if some straight person did come in from out of town, the bullet fired would travel along in s l o w motion, and everyone would have plenty of time to limbo around it.

So you have a bad day at work… and a bad commute home… It doesn’t matter… In minutes your with neighbors smokin’ a bowl… Soon the best jokes ever told come out into the air, and everyone is bent over laughing…

The city is full of social problems… How many would having free pot solve?

Unwanted pregnancy… solved. Can’t get it up. No sex.
Robbery; pot is free, one doesn’t need drug money.
Fighting: never happens when everybody love everybody
Violence: even if started, by the time you stop laughing, it is all forgotten.
Drug Sales: who could sell crack when pot is free? Keepin’ my money dude.
Drug violence: head honchos would remain straight, but everybody working for them would be floating on moonbeams. No suburban girls driving in for pills, if pot was free. There would soon be no money coming in; the business would have to move.
Traffic accidents: pot smokers are very conscientious drivers.
Crack Houses: don’t need them; you can smoke pot openly on the street.

Since there would be no crime, police working that beat should be allowed to smoke too, It would improve bonding between police and community. The population would be overall healthier from all the natural cures that marijuana can supply…

And then there’s guns. I think if everyone is high, even the NRA would think taking guns off the street would be an enlightened idea. It would aid the community spirit. Plus, after you lit up the entire block with some good bud, all you had to do was ask nicely and all the guns would be brought down to you…. no explanations demanded…

Simply put, if you remove the guns, and dissolve the anger, and create a positive friendly environment, you fix the problem….

In fact the only foreseeable problem requiring any expenditures, is that Wilmington doesn’t have any Taco Bells in its downtown region… That would definitely have to be rectified before we begin giving out free pot…

For sure…
