Also legalized in Colorado.

Huge, huge win for libertarians. To hell with the terroristic DEA and FedZilla...

Any chipping away of the power of the feds is fine by me...

Now that the money will start rolling into these two states, other states will follow with its legalization..

Its a plant people, far far less harmful than alcohol or tobacco.

It doesnt work that way.

A State making it legal doesnt change the fact that Federal law is still intact.

Don't care, the federal government must be challenged.

The prohibition of marijuana, without a constitutional amendment, is unconstitutional.

Suck it fedzilla.

When they made alcohol illegal, they still had enough respect for the constitution to realize that had to make an amendment to do it.

That care for the constitutional process has long since been destroyed.

While you are correct based on what the federal law states, it seems that when everyone does it, the Feds tend to turn the other cheek as apposed to spending all of their resources on it.
Assuming this video is accurate(in regards to medical MJ in CO).....

Wait, that's not true. They ended up not doing that stuff.

Come on right? Four guys drinking beer is a fist fight waiting to happen, four guys smoking weed is a rock band waiting to happen.

Just one more reason we lost the election last night.

It won't matter if the state and or local governments don't fight to uphold the recognition of its legality. The feds will either be emboldened to or discouraged from flexing its superceding power by the fight in the dog of the state and local representatives. But all the while, the threat of federal crack downs will loom...forever. Additionally, there will be ebbs and flows in how liberal the laws will be.

Pretty much though, for the most part getting caught with small (and not so small) amounts of marijuana by local cops is not a big deal in most locales in California.

And no, I don't partake in any of it.

Hey lunk head, tobacco is a plant and alcohol is made from plants and fungus.

Oh, BTW, arsenic is from a plant as well, wouldn't want to eat it though.

Asbestos is from mother earth, still not good for you. Ya see where I'm going with this?

Oh boy. I know you think you know what is best for the other 7 billion people on the planet.

You don't.

Don't like marijuana?

Here is a suggestion for you, don't use it.

No, I don't.

I think the poster in question pretty much made whatever point you think you're making irrelevant when he finished his sentence...

Umm, lunkhead, Arsenic is an element. It doesn't come "from a plant" any more than carbon does.

Seriously, what gives you the hubris to dictate what some one else does with their body?

Probably his religion, as it always has been.

First off, your right. I was wrong.

Second, I don't have anymore right than you.

Third, I don't think legalization of MJ goes far enough. I think all drugs should be legal. With a caveat. If you OD, end of game. The only exceptions is for the very young.

When I worked in the ER we has 9 teens OD at a pill party. A pill party is where everyone brings a bottle of pills to the party and dumps them into a bowl. They mix them up and everyone gets a handful and takes them. We saved them so they could pass on the stupid to their derpa children.

BTW, I asked all my Pt.s while I worked in a prison, what drug they started with. They all, to the man said MJ. I don't smoke, it gave me wicked headaches. But I really don't care what you put into yours. Just don't come whining when the check is due for partaking.

Agree 100%.. If you are a heroin addict and die from it, those are the consequences. What more can be done. The wages of those drugs are death...

Alcoholics kill thousands of innocent people on the roads every year..

Should we ban alcohol again?

The prohibition of drugs has always been a loosing war. Far more harm than good had come of it..

No one can seriously dispute that statement. Governmental research on the subject has concluded that time and time again.

Really? None tried coffee or a caffeinated soda pop first?

I find that REALLY hard to believe.
