One of the few positives of the night.

I am all for personal freedom as long as you are not hurting others, and I think this is a step in the right direction.

Tax it and make money off of it, And save a ton of money from all of the costs associated with the 'war on drugs'.

Good. Marijuana should be legal. I could look through the 24 years of police reports I've written and not find a single instance where someone who was high on weed fought with a deputy or beat his wife. People need to get the rods out of their butts and loosen up when it comes to weed. If we'd stop dealing with it, little would change, except that we'd be able to focus on meth, which is a drug that actually causes serious harm.

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).....

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.
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...

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

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.

People that get caught with it in those states will not be arrested in many if not the majority of cases and the feds would be swamped with trying to prosecute every one. Even if it's illegal federally it's still effectively legal unless they hand people over to their feds and why would they do that if they just legalized it?

Oh, and if you purchase a gun after smoking it, look for these guys to be taking you into custody, as you just committed a felony-

Political Issues[/QUOTE]

Now when is that last time someone got totally fried on pot and decided that they just had to buy a gun instead of a burger from Five Guys?

To bad that in CA the courts already ruled since MJ is legal (with a prescription) your 2nd Amendment right aren't at all affected.

It's a step in the right direction. It will probably take a few more election cycles for the rest of the county to catch up, but it is refreshing to see some common sense trending in the right direction. 40 years too late, but better late than never.

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.
