Along with Hunter Thompson and Jerry Garcia, astrophysicist/all around science bad ass Neil deGrasse Tyson is one of our heroes here at SmokeSmith Gear. His photo is on the wall of our office. We respect his methodology and his commitment to facts. So to hear him say that “there’s no reason for [marijuana] to ever have been made illegal" is all the proof we need that the current federal laws are asinine and need to amended.
Tyson said the words above in response to a Facebook Live question submitted by a reporter for MassRoots, who asked about whether he agrees on cannabis policy with the late cosmologist Carl Sagan, another major figure in science and not a man to be trifled with.
To have these two giant brains aligned on the issue of legalization should be comfort to all who support legalization. And we know we'd gladly supply Neil with a lifetime supply of bongs, vapes, pipes, dab rigs, grinders and rolling papers, if he were to ever reach out to us.
