California’s hard-left Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom plans to pull National Guards from the border where they are protecting Americans. Newsom has another mission for them. He wants them to protect the state’s marijuana industry, according to information published by the LA Times.
Politicians love drugging America because it’s lucrative and puts more money in their coffers to buy influence with their chosen voting blocs.
California’s marijuana industry is struggling. In addition to lost taxes, the pot lobby has given Democrats hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations.
A new report from the state Cannabis Advisory Committee on the first year of legal pot sales in California says there is a problem that requires urgent action: “Fragmented and uncoordinated” enforcement has allowed the black market to flourish, threatening licensed business with unfair competition.
He plans to corrupt the National Guard and their honorable mission of protecting the nation and instead use them to aid the industry by redeploying at least 150 California National Guard troops from the U.S.-Mexico border and instead use them to combat illegal grows in Northern California.
“There are legitimate concerns in Northern California, particularly as it relates to illegal cannabis grows. They are getting worse, not better,” Newsom stated last week, according to the Los Angeles Times. “I want to see more enforcement.”
California citizens voted to legalize recreational marijuana in November 2016, and the law officially changed in January 2018.
Officials eyes bugged out over all the revenue they thought was going to pour into their chests. One billion dollars to be exact, with the opening of thousands of cannabis shops.
Instead, the state only issued 547 temporary and annual licenses by December 2018, and California is only expected to rake in $471 million in revenue this fiscal year.
The black market controls eighty percent of the marijuana industry. That, and the state’s onerous regulations are keeping the money from flowing into the politicians’ pockets.
Newsom’s plan to target drug cartels and illegal grows shows the Democrat Party’s priorities do not include Americans and their safety. Their goals are money and power.
Newsom called controlling and protecting the border, “political theatre.” Currently, the cartels control the border.
Democrats and the marijuana lobby have an evil, incestuous relationship and it is more important than values or American lives.
The National Guard entices new recruits with this message:

They should change it for California to — Your new mission, if you choose to accept it, is to protect drug dealers so politicians can fill their coffers.
