    I’m not a big fan of ANY drug, since I don’t drink, smoke, smoke weed, or take any psychoactive chemical stronger than caffeine, but our policy on marijuana is simply insane, ridiculously costly to the taxpayer, and cruel to a lot of people thrown in prison for a trivial infraction of an irrational law. Time to change.

    Fine make it a Mister Miner but even if you are transporting and selling large quantities keep it a felony.

    It will change when the large corporations that own the Tobacco and Liquor companies figure out a way to control ALL the Pot grown in the world, so THEY can be the ones making the profits from the sale and use.
    Since that ain’t gonna ever happen, and you can grow your own pot in your own back yard in almost every state, there is still gonna be a LONG fight for legalization.
    It’s NOT about “Health”, or “Gateway Drug Use” or anything like that, it’s ALL about THE MONEY!!

    You might read The Natural Mind, Dr. Andrew Weil’s frst book and the philosophical basis for all of his resulting beliefs and tenets if you haven’t already. As an ethnobotanist he came up with the idea that some people desire to be removed from a normal state of mind to get other perspectives.

    I remember when weed was a felony, they could vacuum your pants pockets or rug and if they found one seed or flake of pot you could get six months in jail.
    Now that it’s legal to smoke weed its no fun anymore.

    I have heard that perspective, which appears to be an updating of the 1960s attitude that drugs can bring enlightenment. I am not willing to write off the possibility for some people, but personally I don’t feel the need to alter the normal neurochemical balance of my brain to get other perspectives. Could be because my father destroyed his life with alcohol…

    It is well known pot’s better for you than booze, prison or cig’s, but until these industries stop lobbying congress were in trouble. The new DEA head is a fool or bought and paid for, refuses to look at any facts. Portugal did away with all drug laws years ago, abuse stopped, not filling up the prisons, health better. I’m 78, never smoked pot or used any other illegal drugs, you can smoke pot in my house, but not tobacco.

    MM has brought up Portugal’s drug policy a few times before but as he has previously pointed out, Portugal just decriminalised drug use and instituted more support programmes for users. Portugal still has drug trafficking laws. I think I recently read that drug abuse has dropped off overall although for some age groups it had increased; but the exact stats escape me at the moment.
