    They should bring back their favorite crackhead, Dumocrat Marion Barry. I’m sure he will let them dope.

    Here in Colorado, it’s so far a non-event. Crime went down in Denver, the state made $77 million from taxes on marijuana, and nobody really cares one way or the other. Hey you conservatives who want more individual freedom, shout out, here, won’t you? Why should mommy government prohibit pot? Is it that you like to throw folks in jail? That’s pretty expensive, you know.

    Oh, somebody cares in Colorado. Whenever voters pass a law that creates a new freedom, a bunch of legislators go into panic mode and try to figure out how to take most of it back. People won’t just throw themselves into jail, after all.

    Can anyone explain to me what the cartoon is referring to? (anyone except ConserveGov who can’t explain anything). Is there a regulation against just meeting to talk about it?

    Comment: And some in America want to legalize it!? Well it is not a lot different in affect than is alcohol and its resultant cost—in so many ways—to America and the American people. The question therefore remains, the same question that for alcohol we once tried to resolve through the failed Prohibition Amendment to our Constitution, is it better to legalize it and have positive control over it as we do with alcohol or to continue to leave it, in the whole, to hidden, unregulated underground markets of back alley marketeers’ and racketeers?

    No one has advocated for legalizing driving while high. All the legalization campaigns of which I am aware oppose DWH. The problem, as I understand it, is that it is difficult for police to determine DWH. Evidence of marijuana exposure can remain in the blood for weeks after exposure occurs, even if only second-hand smoke. Blood tests require a warrant which in turn requires probable cause. But because of the presence of the drug for weeks following even second-hand exposure, a positive test does not mean the person was actually DWH. There is no equivalent to the “breathalyzer” used for alcohol, and field sobriety tests are ineffective. Thus law enforcement will have to depend on science, which as we all know Repugs oppose and are unwilling to fund, to develop accurate and non-invasive means of testing drivers suspected of DWH. It’s a conundrum.

    Time for the rest of the country to jump on it and get tax revenue.

    I actually have no problem if mostly liberals want to smoke dope and get dumber.

    The drug warriors are spouting the same old b.s. as they did 100 years ago. Don’t you think it’s time to roll out the old gateway drug canard?
