Short video of the crowd at the annual hashbash cheering the national anthem. The speakers went on to argue that taxes should be paid on cannabis to help the poor; that money spent raiding Oaksterdam should have went to gun suppression; that even though voters have expressed their opinions and the state hasn't listened, there just needs to be more ballot measures and more voting.

Yes, Starship Troopers. The campy anti-war satire about a race from a distant, desert land, who out of nowhere strikes a civilian target in a way we didn't think was possible, leading to heavy-handed patriotic propaganda, and a headlong rush into a war with a poorly thought-out strategy that results in a quagmire.
