Marijuana for Free, Just Swipe Your EBT

You would think that by now we would have all the laws we could possibly need. But Massachusetts State Representative Shaunna O’Connell proposes a sadly necessary law to forbid purchasing newly legalized recreational marijuana with EBT cards:

“I want to be proactive in protecting funds for people who really need them and protecting taxpayers’ dollars,” she said.

O’Connell was behind a bill that is now law that prevented people from using their EBT card to buy alcohol tobacco and lottery tickets.

“We saw this go on for years because it was not illegal to use your money for that,” she said.

Not everyone likes her new bill. Watch in horror as Jon Latessa of Boston avers that the government ought to confiscate money from those who work for a living so that entitled stoners who vote for a living can spend it making themselves even more useless by frying their sparse brain cells:

State Representative Kate Brophy McGee has proposed similar legislation in Arizona, where recreational marijuana is legal so long as you pretend it is for medicinal purposes.

There is one advantage to letting people buy pot with EBT cards. It may wake a few people up to the fact that we have been enslaved by freeloaders and their representatives; some might even get angry enough to give thought to what we can do about it.

Other than the infuriating symbolism, whether you can charge the pot directly to tax slaves hardly matters. Money is fungible; what you don’t have to spend on munchies thanks to your EBT card, you can spend on recreational drugs instead. There are numerous sources of cash for government teat-feeders (TANF, TCA, etc.).

    It’s called the d-cRAT-party-voter-increase-program because a STONED voter is a d-cRAT voter. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/ae906e249a30d8b0316c26b26d163175d58e594954eacad16dcc395330fce12a.jpg

    “….where recreational marijuana is legal so long as you pretend it is for medicinal purposes.”

    Legal according to state laws; illegal according to federal laws. Maybe federal laws don’t matter anymore.

    Yep.

    well, stoners are very rarely violent. Maybe they should let them toke up. It could lower the kill count in places like Chicongo.

  • ICEvictim

    it shouldn’t even be a federal law. None of their business.

  • Mr. Freemarket

    True. But since it still is federal law, we must deal with that fact.

    MB: Money is fungible; what you don’t have to spend on munchies thanks to your EBT card, you can spend on recreational drugs instead.

    This fact is rarely ever mentioned by anyone.

    Just imagine how much money you would have leftover for weed and alcohol if your regular living expenses (groceries, housing, utilities, cell phone, etc) were being paid for by other people. It’s now gone to a whole new level of Moonbattery.

    And maybe if we medicate the boys in schools so they’re not so energetic–er, disruptive, that’ll help, too.
