And a certain percentage of beer and liquor sales go to underage drinkers. does that mean we have to shut down the ENTIRE liquor industry?

untrue - this news is likely to cause increased blood pressure and insomnia among authoritarians. people having a good time is also likely to lead to 'authoritarian rage syndrome', which can lead to vomiting blood on people, biting and zombie apocalypse.

Too good to just waste on sick people.

It makes everybody want to get 'sick' and drive up medical bills. Thanks Obama.

The best part of walking down Venice Beach is the "nurses" in their green uniforms hassling you to come in and see the doctor for a pain assessment.

I don't smoke pot, but I still thought it was pretty amusing.

I just hope we continue to spend billions of dollars to prevent people who don't have prescriptions from getting marijuana.

Someone MIGHT be being harmed. Better to be safe than sorry. Hang 'em all, I say!

It's negligible compared to the 100% of pot that's illegal according to Federal law. Not saying that it should be, but it does put a bit of a hole in your "legality of use" argument.

Better there than our national forests

The fact that the cartels were diverting streams and setting up booby traps to grow in our protected forests pissed me off. Then they were chasing off hikers with Ak-47s

Marijuana grows openly in California towns as traffickers police hide behind laws, police traffickers say.

FIFY.

Police need to mind their damn business. Like pulling over middle aged housewives driving three MPH over the limit. Or harassing jaywalkers. Lazy cowards.

start here

In 1999, Marinol was rescheduled from Schedule II to III of the Controlled Substances Act, reflecting a finding that THC had a potential for abuse less than that of cocaine, and heroin

That's a non-sequitur for your original argument. Just because Marinol is on Schedule III already (do your research!) doesn't negate that. Pot is still illegal.

My government reorganization would eliminate the DEA, transferring all drug policy to FDA and Schedule I enforcement to ATF. I'd also merge FDA and Agriculture. Then you've got one department in charge of deciding what we put in our bodies and one department chasing contraband.

except that it's not illegal. well...it is but it isn't.

hey, don't yell at me man...i'm just going by what the DEA says. And they say that THC is both illegal and not illegal at the same time.
 
2012-05-19 07:34:02 PM  
Really? Because My friends and I am way more concerned about being shot at by illegal aliens when we unknowingly come up on or to close to one of their grows while hiking in our national forest.

Maybe you could work on that and the fact they start many of our fires while out there.

Leave the little guys alone.

We need to pump in more money to arm and equip our cops like soldiers in order to make it slightly difficult for people to obtain this harmless substance.

My question is this- why is the crack down on weed so important when there's still drug lords pumping tons of coke and heroin into the US still?

There was a time when 100% of alcohol was illegal. I wonder how that worked out...

"Let's just take a conservative estimate of a pound per plant. And if you have 99 pounds then you are looking at over 89,000 doses in a year," Ko said. "So you would have to smoke a joint every six minutes of every hour of every day for a year to use the 99 plants."


So I'd have to cut back, then?

Who said anything about dating. I'm talking about raping. And raping yes should always be pleasarable. But sometimes it's not.
