High Sales on Green Wednesday

I just submitted this article I wrote to ( I am interested in what you have to say about this particular topic and to start a duscussion about it. It is going to take a few days to be reviewed by and hopefully accepted but let me know what you think now. I actually don't think that they are going to accept this article because of the fact that it is nearly taboo to talk about this. There is so much to say about this topic lately because of all the changes in the laws and I personally am wondering what the federal government is going to do next as well as what states are going to follow.

"People are calling it Green Wednesday because of the high sales of recreational marijuana all across Colorado. It's said that they made over $1 million dollars and in Perth, Australia, headlines are saying, "Move Over Amsterdam." With no Doctor's note necessary people from all over the state flocked to wait in line for hours. There is no better feeling than to be alive during a change like this. I love to compare this type of historic change to the prohibition on alcohol. There are so many similarities. The people want this and not many are fighting against this. From what I have observed it seems that the people who are fighting against this either don't know much about the plant or they are in a position of power and this type of change is not going to benefit them. It's also good to know that people who are under the age of 21 are not allowed to buy this chronic goodness. In my opinion I think that just like alcoholic drinks and cigarettes people who are under the age limit are going to try to find a way to get their hands on it. I agree that it needs to be regulated but not ban from total use. The places selling the stuff have made so much money that they are having concerns with how to handle all of it! I was reading an article on the huffington post which I will leave a link to that says,"Owners in the city expressed concern about taking in large amount of cash, since federal banking regulations currently prohibit banks from working with the marijuana industry while the drug remains classified as illegal by the federal government." This is insane! I am very happy to see that the federal government is going to have to take action very soon and not only because I know that they are going to want a piece of the pie but because these places need to be able to have bank accounts! I can't wait to see this drug war end. All of the money and the people spent on the drug war is horrid. This is a welcome change by many in my generation. I am happy to see this happen in my lifetime."

I am positive that you fully understand desire and wanting someone to want you as much as you want them. You want the other party to completely return the feelings that you have for them in someway or anyway; needing to know that you are somehow important to them in the way that they are important to you. The mirror in emotion that you yearn so desperately for. I believe that there is always a dark side to pretty much everything as well as a beautiful side. I appreciate both sides and find both sides equally able to inspire me creatively. I know a few people who I network with and talk to online who don't feel this way. They rather stick to being positive and uplifting but I feel that even if you are writing about a darker time or a negative aspect of something it can also get a positive reaction. I am often inspired by the grunge era and am a fan of many 90's alternative musicians.

Can't Wait

I really just can't wait to get home from work so that I can come home and do the things that make me the happiest. Just want to write a few blogs and maybe jump into a short story or two to see how it feels to create something again. I have started painting a bird and I would like to do a few touches on it as well. There are clean cloths for me to put away and a nap calling my name. I have the energy to create and I have no idea where it came from. It is something that I haven't been tapping into and should have never stopped. There is always time to type a few words or write a little in a notebook. I need to make time. I need to make more time. There will be time! Coffee too, we can't forget that. I know that when I get home I am probably going to have to take a nap before I feel like doing anything but who knows what the day has in store? Hope that it goes my way. I swear I won't misbehave! Also I needn't forget about I have already gotten reviews from four people and it was only up for a day. I'm feeling optimistic about this.

I now have a profile & how I feel about it.

I have a profile now. I was on facebook just doing my thing and I noticed that my Aunt had posted something on my facebook wall saying something about this page called where writers of all ages can come together and share their work. You can comment and read what other people have to say. I think that there might even be a point system as well. Also saw there are competitions and things that you can win which is exciting. I love learning new things and trying them too. This is page being shared by my aunt has inspired me and has caused my flame to burn a little brighter. I am feeling a sense of focus and it's a nice change. I wont be disappointed if this site doesn't work out for me either because it has given me a little momentum to write a little more and that was one of the things that I want to work on this year. Check it out for yourself if you would like to! My user-name on there is knowingthinker.
