    Let the dopes have their dope.
    I really have no interest in smoking pot. Did it a few times in college and just got lazy and hungry.
    But, I don’t think it’s something the government should be involved with.
    Put the weed dealers out of business, tax it since you already tax alcohol and make sure none of the dopeheads drive high.

    Maybe you should smoke some and mellow out that sour attitude.

    It’s a good thing those people can still be prosecuted under Federal Law and International Treaties. Everyone should know about the menace of marijuana. Reliable documentaries have shown how terrible it is. (I understand our patriotic liquor manufacturers helped pay for these documentaries in their never-ending, selfless devotion to spreading the truth.)

    “It’s a good thing those people can still be prosecuted under Federal Law and International Treaties.”

    That would be interesting to see what the “states’ rights” crowd would have to say about the Feds interfering with legal pot sales in CO or WA.

    “time will only tell in the long run if it was worth it.”

    Fearless prediction: it is worth it. The costs of incarcerating people on pot charges is staggering, due to the numbers involved. The amount of money no longer spent on a “war” on drugs, based mostly on lies and innuendo, has also been astounding, and should stop. And the taxes gained will do much to help bankrupt states and municipalities, to say nothing of getting organized crime out of the biz.

    I have played in bands all my adult life. I have never seen a belligerent stoner, but I have seen way too many angry drunks, willing to fight at the slightest provocation.

    Classifying marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug was one of the most stupid and costly ideas the feds ever came up with.

    More than 10 years ago, a friend was seated next to a DEA agent on a commercial flight. The agent told my friend that DEA had given up on pot; at the time, they estimated that one out of every three homes in America had pot in it. And none of the things we were warned about by the feds has happened, despite this.

    Legalizing it is the will of the people. Isn’t that what freedom and democracy are supposed to be about?

    Maybe with the New Year, you are now coming over to the Right side of things.

    Obviously your few remaining brain cells could use a rest from all that pot you smoke.

    The same people that will tell you that it’s OK for Colorado to ignore federal drug laws will tell you that states must implement 0bamacare because its federal law.

    While I do still have some reservations about monitoring “recreational users”, medical marijuana has lot of uses. I’ve reached the point where looking at my three potentially lethal prescription drugs (actual narcotics, which marijuana is NOT) I’m thinking seriously again about having my private doctor give me a “recommendation”, as my state doesn’t actually recognize a “prescription” for mj. I’m also finding those prescription drugs are having more side effects as I’ve grown older, side affects pot doesn’t have, and it can be more easily regulated as to “dosage”.


    Lots of friends with spinal chord injuries, and pot has literally been a “lifesaver” for many of them. As to nausea and other effects of cancer treatment, NO prescription drugs are as effective as pot, period.


    Yes, it WAS the booze manufacturers and pharmaceutical folks who put together that total fraud of “Reefer Madness” the movie, and the anti-pot campaign (along with a few “holy rollers” who just didn’t want anyone to get high except on psychotic devotion and emotionalism to a myth.).

    Dtroutma, here is one that works well for cancer patients who have nausea. Zofran® is just as effective, and has less side effects than Merinol® http://www.rxlist.com/marinol-drug.htm
