…Steve Zabawa the anti-medical marijuana crusader who appeared in the Billings Gazette after his attempts to get in on a share of a medical marijuana business came to light.
For proposing a ballot initiative to ban the possession, use or cultivation of marijuana in Montana after trying to get in on the profits from the sale of it, Zabawa is this week’s hypocrisy hero.
Let’s here it for Zabawa, dear readers. It takes a special kind of hypocrite to campaign to eradicate something after you failed to profit from it personally.
But it gets better….or worse. As the Republican blog Montanafesto reported in 2011. Zabawa, is the owner of the Rimrock Auto and Mercedez dealerships in Billings. Rimrock Auto had been plagued with problems, including federal probes into its business practices, the Billings Outpost reported. In hopes of righting his business he hired the infamous Tony Woolery to manage and run his west end location to help the struggling business around. Tony Woolery’s wife has terminal bone cancer, so has been a registered medical marijuana card carrier and relies on medical marijuana for pain medication.
But hypocrites and conservatives aren’t bothered by the plight of other people. That’s what makes them what they are.
So get out there in one of your Mercedes and celebrate your success Mr. Zabawa. As a religious man, you don’t need to you ask yourself “What Would Jesus Do?” because you know the answer. As you cruise the cosmopolitan streets of downtown Billings with your convertible top down, don’t waste a thought on your business partner’s wife’s terminal illness and suffering.
