Jim Kenney Thinks LCB’s could Distribute Canabis, and Wine Should Be Sold At Wegmans
Tuesday, Evan Urbania & Matthew Ray of Chatterblast held a Reception in Support of JIM KENNEY Democratic Nominee for Mayor at Garces Trading Company in the Gayborhood. There was a nice turn out of voters to the cocktail party. I arrived just as Kenney was addressing the crowd.
Some of the highlights of his speech: He’s not giving up on anyone. He believes in 2nd chances, believes in prison reform and believes we have a higher percentage of African Americans in prision unfairly. Many on drug charges, specifically pot. There’s no way more AA’s smoke pot in this City than other groups. There’s something wrong. He will end “Stop and Frisk” as he believes AA are targeted at a higher rate than other groups. He’d like to see pot legalize, and controlled and sold in LCB stores. It’s about time wine was sold at Wegman’s, freeing up space in the LCB for pot. No one cards more aggressively than the LCB, and pot would be sold only to the 21 and over crowd. Kenny said he is excited to keep the greatness of Philly going following great leaders like Gov Rendell and Mayor Nutter. He’s renewed in his faith after seeing Pope Francis, and he’s excited to be Philadelphia’s next Mayor.
