To the Editor:
Medical marijuana was a stalking horse for the real thing. After years of trying, America's "beautiful people" failed to legalize medical marijuana. So, a victim class was created whose pain could be cured by marijuana only. No one, including my wife and I who both have lost brothers to cancer, could disagree.
Their scheme worked. Billionaire George Soros, Warren Buffett and Democratic fundraiser John Morgan funded dozens of pro pot groups. Advocacy groups are leading the campaign to crush marijuana prohibition everywhere. Soros's billions funded numerous foundations for waging war against pot prohibition.
Soros alone spent $80 million to legalize pot by funding their campaigns. Soros's Foundation to Promote an Open Society is the nation's leading group promoting drug legalization.
The Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) gave millions funding state ballot issues like Illinois. The MPP ranked Soros as the most influential marijuana user in the U.S. behind President Barack Obama, Oprah Winfrey and other "beautiful people."
Mason Tvert, MPP director, said his group and the Drug Public Alliance are working full time on pot legalization.
Soros and multi-millionaire Democratic fundraiser John Morgan funded 80 percent of the money approving marijuana in Florida under the slogan "People United for Medical Marijuana" with more states to come.
Following approval of medical marijuana in the name of fairness, this same clique demand legal pot for all - the entry drug for heroin as the "beautiful people" prove daily on TV.
This simple Illinois farmer prays he is wrong. Governor Rauner help us now!
