Letter: Leading the way to the future?

Perspective on brave new world

In a world clouded by the doom and gloom naysayers of newspapers and TV, it was refreshing to see a few rays of hope this month. “Ironman” Elon Musk, CEO of Paypal, Space X, Tesla motors, Solar City, Hyperloop, and his brilliant engineering skills have not only produced the world’s best and safest car, his all electric cars have paved the way to make gasoline powered transportation obsolete. Anyone who buys his cars will never have to pay for charging at his solar powered, nationwide network of superfast charging stations.

Big Prison and Big Pharma had their world threatened by glimpses of sanity against the “reefer madness” status quo. A.G. Eric Holder proposed letting low level drug offenders out of the prison, since they pose no risk to the public and crowd the overflowing prisons.

Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Governor Chris Christie, thanks to the ground breaking marijuana research of the Israeli government, are now proposing allowing children to receive the proven healing benefits of marijuana. Research is now progressing on using marijuana to cure cancer and Alzheimer’s disease. The only thing holding back these brave new world innovations is the paid for influence that Big Oil, Big Prison and Big Pharma has upon our elected leaders.

Rip back the curtain and let the light of the brave new future shine through.
