Kahabut: BolloxReader: TimonC346: HotIgneous Intruder: Growing and smoking the weed is a federal crime.
Get over it or change the laws, idiots.

Yeah, they are trying to make it legal at the state level. I realize federal laws trump state ones, sure, but can you give me a reason marijuana is illegal?

Bonus points for not using the phrase "dangerous drugs". Because it isn't.

/don't smoke
//don't get why it is illegal

it is illegal because of the Temperence movement. Pot is one of the very few drugs actually banned specifically by Congress. Between DuPont wanting to corner the rope market and its high useage among Hispanics (a big threat according to many people at the time) it was an easy sell to Congress. The AMA testified against a ban as did a couple others. IIRC the only one who testified in favor of the ban was a "researcher" who injected something into the brains of a hundred dogs, four of which died. This was years before THC was isolated so who knows what he actually injected into their brains.

Anyway, Congress was trying to ban everything chemical back then so they scolded the folks testifying against the ban for wasting the committee's time, and the whole thing passed Congress pretty much without debate. The DuPont influence meant that hemp plants were banned in their entirety because of a zero tolerance clause. Their artificial ropes became the only game in town.

Because it was Congress and not the FDA that prohibited marijuana, it will take Congressional action to permit it. And that will never happen. It's too damned useful for law enforcement to get people they don't like off the streets.

I've never smoked pot, nor do I have any desire to do so, but the whole thing is stupid. The worst thing that I can think of is that people shouldn't be under the influence while operating heavy machinery. We already have rules for that, DUIs can be (and are) handed out for driving while high.

Many western states do not enforce Marijuana bans at all. I know from personal ...


You do know the cop pinched her bag right??

You always find a way to sound like the most smug, hostile bastard. At least the conservatrolls are funny.

That's because nothing about this national schizophrenia is funny.
It's sad and pathetic and frightening.
YMMV.



Do you know how I know that pot increases paranoia and is linked to the early onset of schizophrenia?


The voices on your head told you so? :D

AsprinBurn: They are.

They are following federal law. Rugged individuals do follow the law.

Why are you confused?

Hey, try to pay attention, will you? They "follow" federal law when it suits their purpose. They flout federal law when it opposes their purpose. Still with us?

That's not rugged. That's a farkhole.


Because following the law is for saps and losers, right?
It's hilarious how dope smokers think they're getting over every time they draw off a joint. It must give them a sense of being clever and smarter than society at large. Reminds me of the non-conformist hipsters who, as a group, conform to each other. A sort of Catch-22 for the fuzzy brained.

"The White Mountain Health Center sued Maricopa County and the Arizona Department of Health Services after the County refused to issue the proper zoning permits that would allow the Center to operate a non-profit medical marijuana dispensary and cultivation site in Sun City.
"It is the County's position that the AMMA is in direct violation of the federal Controlled Substances Act and therefore cannot be implemented without exposing County employees to the risk of federal prosecution," said Montgomery."

Why is it that I suspect that somewhere in the Maricopa County Charter there's a provision which denies anyone from having any fun, ever?

They don't seem troubled by this when it comes to federal immigration law.

This is going to sound bad, but he can't do a damned thing this term about drug law reform because he's back. It wou just add fuel to the Conservative fear of "The Other".

nah he could team up with Ron Paul and a few other white libertarian types.


for that matter he could even get Pat Robertson to help too. that would give him plenty of cover.
