Pot Prisoners Moved To Cryogenic Chambers

As Gen X replace Baby-boomers at the top of corporate and political ladders a new liberal attitude glimmered on the horizon. The 80’s children, born into a prosperity, peace and pointlessness, who spent a youth intoxicated on rave music and rave drugs, promised to unshackle the stiff mindedness of their parents. Then Brexit, then Trump. […]
