Why can Jeb Bush smoke weed and get away with it?

Greeting fellow Serfs of America!
By now, you should have heard about Presidential hopeful, Jeb Bush’s fling with marijuana as a high school student in Andover, a private school for the elite. His brother and former president of the United States also had his run with prohibited substances such as cocaine in college, yet none of these people ever served time, had their lives ruined by the substances yet still endorses sending ‘others’ who do exactly what they did, to jail.
Jeb even stood against legalizing medical marijuana in Florida:
“Florida leaders and citizens have worked for years to make the Sunshine State a world-class location to start or run a business, a family-friendly destination for tourism and a desirable place to raise a family or retire,” Bush said before the November midterm election. “Allowing large-scale marijuana operations to take root across Florida, under the guise of using it for medicinal purposes, runs counter to all of these efforts.” – Jeb Bush
The United States of Serfdom
The US arrests over a million people per year on drug law violations each year. In 2013, 82% were for possession alone and only 17.7% of them were manufacturing and distributing a controlled substance. If you were to follow statistics back until 2007, the 82% margin remains the same.
What this means is that the vast majority of drug related arrests are for mere possession, something that Jeb Bush himself did when in High school. The only question that remains is: “Why can he do it and we can’t?”
Why is it allowed for big brand politicians to get away with consuming drugs and evade the long arm of the law? The only answer that really comes to mind is that these political types have become modern day Lords over the rest of America.
Protecting their own
Jeb Bush encourages incarceration over treatment, except when it comes to his own family of course. His daughter, Noelle was not sentenced to mandatory prison time for her addiction of crack cocaine but was rather placed in a Rehab center.
All the while, the Floridian governor cut the budgets of drug treatment and drug court programs in his state. In other words, he sentenced over 10,000 drug users to prison whereas his “powdered” nosed daughter was sheltered from the same fate.
If this isn’t an Alarming issue for Americans, it should be!
This only goes to show that the super-rich elite political class is ‘above the law’, they do not face the same consequences of the average American and thus we can no longer call the United States a land of ‘equal opportunities’.
Maybe it’s time for a Serf uprising and maybe it’s time we make sure these scumbag politicians never make it into office again. What do you think we should do about the United States of Serfdom? How do we tackle this pressing issue?
