Why is it huge? Personally I don't care what they do.

Just so long as I have the right to fire someone for coming to work under the influence of it, and if you drive under the influence of it you can go to jail.

Even just targeting the larger players the DEA will still be quickly overwhelmed by shear volume of users and demand. Good luck cleaning house, they are going to be struggling just to keep their heads above water just between CO and Washington. What happens when more states follow the trend?

Personally I hope these two states voting to legalize, will force the issue at the federal level.
This - while it remains a Federal crime, there are truly profound limits on what the Feds can do in terms of enforcement.

There must be a half-dozen medical MJ stores within two miles of my house, all technically illegal under federal law, and subject to ATF action, but they're operating every day with a big green cross out front on a lit sign.

The VAST majority of MJ prosecutions are at the local and state levels, and it's awfully tough for the ATF/FBI, etc. to work when they're getting zero support from local LEO's.

Washington State's decision isn't the final word, and the Feds are clearly on the other side of the table from the state at this point, but for 99% of tokers, the effect will be that MJ is legal.

FWIW, I hate the stuff - my parents were both cigarette and MJ smoking hippies, and as a small child I learned to hate the smell of smoked anything, from incense to pot. Still do, in my early forties.

I can't wait for the DEA to clean house!

Ha ha ha. You are just a short sighted nanny state apologist. Wait til the Feds come for your guns and you try to assert States rights.

Try and get a job that requires a urine sample.
DOT drivers license? Forget it.
It will create more food stamp recipients 'cause potheads can't get work.

Ummm, sell to everyone instead of just those that have a card? It will be more like Wal-Mart than Costco. Plus up to 6 plants are legal so many more people will be growing their own.

This is happening people. No way around it just like gay marriage. I would personally like to thank the religious right for making this possible.

I found a way around that. Started my own business. **** working for people that think they have control of me in my free time. It will be so ironic if this is the thing that finally turns our economy around in a few years.

I don't recall the Prohibition being a flaming success, nor the War on Drugs....or Gun Control.
Legalize the stuff, tax it, and create industry.....there's tons of folks already set up for business.

I was being sarcastic. I find it funny that the medical MJ dispensers used basically the same arguments that the supporters of these propositions used, when they wanted medical pot legalized. This will greatly reduce their profit margins.

They claimed that medical MJ use was not the governments business but then want the government to protect their profit margins by prohibiting competition.

You funny.

I'll mention that to the surgeons, dentists, lawyers and cops I know who smoke... As well as damn near every restaurant employee I've ever met... And, well, heck, at least the last three Presidents of the United States of America... and so on, and so on, and so on...

SCOTUS declines.

OR must issue CCW to MMJ patients as per COURT ruling.
Yes, by a state supreme court court ruling. All the U.S. Supreme Court said is they aren't taking the case. Everything I said above applies.

I want all drugs legalized. Protecting people from themselves is the source of our problems now. I want less protection and the type of people who are apparently the majority in this country will sort themselves out within a couple of years.

Our best chance of getting back on track is more freedom and less safety - make me free and let the people who need government-provided safety kill themselves/each other.

What a joke. The last 40 years of pot prohibition has been a huge drag on the system. It's basically been a jobs program for cops, DEA agents, prison guards, lawyers, and bail bondsmen.

It's truly depressing to think how much money has been spent "fighting" this silliness over the last few decades, not to mention what it's done to personal property rights.

Clearly the answer is more stringent and more comprehensive prohibition.

The War on Drugs to date has been nothing but an appetizer!
