Kevin Stitt desperately panders to marijuana users…

On the same day one of his key advisors and political appointees was charged with 13 felonies related to black market marijuana sales, Stitt set a special election date for SQ 820. Imagine That!

We finally found something that will get Kevin Stitt to embrace marijuana legalization – the serious threat of losing an election! 

On the same day that attorney Matt Stacy – one Stitt’s key advisors and political appointees, and the same guy who helped Stitt move the ghost state medical lab to Stillwater – was charged with 13 felonies related to "facilitating illegal marijuana operations," Kevin Stitt announced yesterday he's set a special election date of March 7th, 2023 for SQ 820. 

Check this out:

Yep. You’re not hallucinating from too many puffs on the old vape pen. Kevin Stitt has declared a special election to legalize weed in Oklahoma!

You have to admit, even though Stitt did this to distract everyone from yet another one of his grifters being busted, the fact that he bumped it up to March and didn’t punt it to a ballot in the far distant future is a bit of a shock.

Just a couple of months ago, when Stitt enjoyed a double-digit lead in polls and was considered a shoo-in to win reelection, his administration did everything possible to keep State Question 820 off the November ballot. 

Now, with his poll numbers dropping faster than Oklahoma marijuana prices, and – friendly reminder – another one of his administrative grifters making headlines for corruption, he’s all aboard the 420 legalization bandwagon and pandering to the marijuana folks! How’s that for valuing power over principles?

On the topic of principals – at least of the public school variety – I wonder what Joy Hofmeister is going to do one up this? I bet she’ll rush through a proposal to add a marijuana cultivation course at all state vo-techs and let all high school band students call in sick on 4/20.

Anyway, I can't wait to vote Yes for this on March 7th, and in the same vein, not vote for Kevin Stitt on November 8th. I hope other people who support recreational marijuana sales in Oklahoma feel the same way.
