I think that people who were members of Congress supported prohibition and then they retired, then go on the boards of cannabis companies. Well, the Lord loves a repentant sinner. I'm having a bit of difficulty with the level of hypocrisy in the Congress and so many other entities in so many ways, it is so appalling. 

What I'm talking about is the right and the left. The people who really bother me the most are in some ways the people who talk about limited government. Of course, they're all in favor of individual freedom and they want to get the government out of the way and this sort of thing. Well, except for marijuana, of course. Prohibition is still a real thing.

And then “oh, I'll I'm retired now. I got my pension. Can I get on your board? You pay me $100,000 a year for waiving as I go by.” Well, the Lord loves a repentant sinner, but I'm having difficulty.
