Is your vehicle in need of new tires? Well, if so, you might want to consider leaving Discount Tire Co. off your list of choices.
The reduced-price tire company’s donation makes them the top donor to stop legal pot in the state, falling second to the pharmaceutical company Insys Therapeutics Inc., who also wrote a large check in the amount of $500,000 to aid the opposition of the Proposition, and then lied about their reasoning for doing so.
You may also want to reconsider where you rent a truck or trailer the next time you relocate because U-Haul has voiced that they would rather their employees continue to buy their weed on the black market as opposed to a legal pot shop via their donation of $25,000 to help defeat Arizona’s Proposition 205.
And I guess the Arizona Lodging and Tourism Association thinks that legalizing weed for adults to use recreationally would be bad for tourism because they wrote a check for $10,000 to help fight Prop. 205 as well.
Maybe these folks should take a peek at what’s happening in states where legalization seems to be working pretty well such as Colorado and Washington.
Both states recently set records for total sales of legal weed in a month, which in turn, means fat coffers for the government in those states from tax revenues generated through legalized retail pot sales.
Now how could that be a bad thing?
Be sure to let these companies and organizations know how you feel about their decision to help block legal pot in Arizona by sending them an email or two.
