Billionaire activist George Soros’ head is in the right place. Unlike Warren Buffet and Bill Gates who just throw money at mostly safe goodwill causes, Soros is willing to fund edgier actions like decriminalizing weed. He wrote out a check for $400K to help get progressive legislation on the ballot in Massachusetts that would “ease criminal penalties on marijuana possession.” Citizens of the Bay State will have their chance to vote in November and potentially become the 13th state to see the light. Under the new law, getting caught with an ounce or less would only land you a “civil offense punishable by a $100 fine.” |NYSun|
