    Prohibition doesn’t work. Never has, never will. Put the cartels out of business; grow it, sell it and tax it here. Export it, after all America has the world’s best farmers.
    The alcohol consumers scenario; drink, get belligerent, start fights, drive drunk and risk theirs and others lives.

    The pot consumer; smoke a joint, giggle a lot, get the munchies, fall asleep.

    Of course that is a simplistic approach, but as a child of the 60’s, been there and done all of that…

    Correct me if i’m wrong.. a gram cost $20, the contents of a Lipton teabag weighs a gram, why not manicure tha gram of bud to the consistancy of a bag of Lipton’s, and drink it as a twenty dollar 6oz. cuppa tea; it might take a bit longer to get the same density of affect as smoking, but you’ll give your lungs a break and you won’t advertise to everyone else that you’re high by reeking all over the place.

    $20 per gram. What happens to the price when it’s legal?

    It’s an interesting conundrum for both liberal federalism and conservative states rights — all the conservatives should be saying “The feds should stay out and leave this to the states” whereas the liberals should be saying, “Hey, the federal government has jurisdiction, the states have to fall into line.” But somehow I think that’s not how it’s going to play out.

    geez, it may now be legal in Washington state, but you still have to know somebody to buy it from…. or have a medical card

    I tried pot a couple of times and I didn’t care for it. I found that it reduced whatever emotions I had into total apathy. Which could be useful if your life is totally miserable. [points left]. Since I’m usually a very happy guy, I’d rather feel that. And with that admission coupled with the fact that I’m a conservative, I hereby forfeit any chance I have of running for elected office. OH DARN!

    I really don’t care if you indulge or not, but NO SMOKING, means NO SMOKING ANYTHING! I don’t want to smell that shit, but somehow it’s seen as “different”.

    Interesting how many of my stoner friends like things the way they are. Pot is easy to find or grow and the chance of being harrassed is not that much more than a cigarette smoker or public drunk would face. What is “legalization” doing other than adding corporate middlemen and government bureaucrats into what could/should be a small-scale farming hobby?

    I’d really like to see a citation for that. Can you tell me the study or the publication?

    In California, it’s been de facto legal for ages, and of course there are a number of other states where medical marijuana has been legalized despite the fact that Federal Law recognizes no such thing.

    The way it shakes out here in the Bay Area is that local law enforcement neither cooperates nor interferes with Federal DEA actions, although of course there’s grumbling on both sides. Big-time pot farms are still pretty conspicuous, and if the Feds find one and shut it down I don’t think there’s anything the State can do about it, but those still aren’t legal under the new Washington or Colorado laws anyway, are they? What’s now legal are the small grower and the user, and the Feds don’t normally spend a lot of time/money/manpower chasing those down…

    “Someone on the radio stated the Bible says that if two men bed together, they shall be stoned.”

    Personally speaking, I’d have to be REALLY stoned, but that’s just me…

    Perfect time for President Obama to decriminalize pot at the federal level. Four more years, four more years!

    I don’t know if you’ll find a citation for this anywhere, but it makes sense to me: since I was a kid, the government was telling me that there are far worse components in marijuana smoke than cigarette smoke. There are lots of people in this country who smoke as much pot as some people do cigarettes. Therefore, we should have seen the government parading out a bunch of examples where pot smokers have even more dastardly things happen to their lungs than cigarette smokers, all the while yelling, “See? I told you so.”

    Since this hasn’t happened, either it happens and the feds aren’t interested in telling it, or it just doesn’t happen. Logic points to the latter.

    I have a friend who was seated next to a DEA agent on a commercial plane flight. He struck up a conversation with this agent, who told him (about 10 years ago) that the DEA believes that 3 out of every 5 homes in the US has marijuana in it. The DEA has given up on pot, unless there is a politician who wants to burnish a tough-on-crime badge, so they will make busts for show, but they know enough to know it’s a losing battle. And, hey: maybe you’ve heard we’re $16 trillion in debt. Taxing marijuana will create a windfall, and save us even more because we won’t be jailing non-criminals, who will be better able to get jobs than those who have a felony conviction as a result of using this “narcotic”.
