I've found that weed is an excellent solution to baby colic. When baby starts to cry, I smoke a couple bowls and the crying doesn't bother me anymore. It's pretty miraculous the way it works.

Why 'urge' to legalize? It's easier and cheaper to purchase than alcohol. Has been for years. Not to mention free delivery with no tipping.

The laws and law enforcement around MJ cause far, far more harm to those that come into contact with it than the drug itself ever could. It's obvious we (as a society) just get off on ruining the lives of those that transgress our arbitrary rules.

Sick society.

In one case, a seasonal national park ranger - seeking a Park Service career - was denied admission into a law enforcement course after acknowledging that he took a toke on a marijuana cigarette months earlier at a party.

A federal seasonal law enforcement officer was denied admission into a law enforcement course after violating federal law and his agency's policies? This is an outrage!

Something tells me he picked the wrong career. Even if pot were legal, law enforcement agencies would still deny people for marijuana use.

The same study found that it's not dose-dependent. Means if you smoked a couple of times at college or are an ounce a week toker, it's the same increase in risk. That's an unusual result.

See, now, there it goes. Being white, I can walk around smoking weed in public, and the cops will just leave me alone. You don't really believe that, I hope.


Well being white, the chance that you're walking around in a cop free area is much higher than it is for a minority.

This. The same goes for "driving while black". Some people might say it in jest, but it doesn't make it any less true or sh*tty.

The American police hate minorities and use excessive patrolling to keep them in their place.

Maybe racism, maybe focusing on high violent crime areas, either way it means the vast vast majority of people getting busted for non-violent pot use are minorities even though all the self-reported surveys say a greater percentage of white people use pot.

Hale-Bopp: So, anyone else planning their next vacation for Colorado?

Used to live in Colorado Springs. Every block (almost literally) there is a medical marijuana dispensary. You have to get a Dr. approval and go through a process which costs about $200 to get a card. I was going to then work moved me. BTW if you show up for the Dr. appointment you are classified as having medical need for marijuana. Just show up.

Now I'm in Chicago so yeah, illegal here but....who the f*ck cares about the laws of the land. Carrying a gun is against the law here, too, but that doesn't stop me.

Fu*k the feds...I hope Washington, D.C. is the epicenter of a nuclear bomb. Bring on the chaos!

My guess would be the same reason the army can still give you the can even if you have a Medical card and you piss hot. Just because it's legal doesn't mean a business (or anyone that employs anyone) HAS to allow their employees to use it. Just means they can't prosecute them. Just like it's legal for me to dye my beard odd colors, but if I were to walk into work with an electric blue goatee, i'd get written up.

And to those that commented on my boobies here: you got trolled, sorry.

It s a relatively harmless substance and should not be considered criminal at all.

Sure, private companies could make that policy, but a public sector job would only be worried about what was legal and what wasn't.

The only reason not to allow your employees to use it is because insurance companies use it as an excuse not to pay. If they had to prove actual intoxication like with booze instead of mere use (minor use can show up to 6 months later in older women or people with metabolism issues), only people getting high at work would be affected.

No one but die hard authoritarian hardons actually cares if people toke up off the clock. (Excepting people who still believe the propaganda, which is not many educated folks)

As for the military, they own your ass.

Tyranicle: It's easier and cheaper to purchase than alcohol. Has been for years. Not to mention free delivery with no tipping.


Yeah, I wish. If I want beer, I walk 3 blocks to the supermarket and buy myself a 12 pack. I'm back home in minutes.

If I want to buy weed, I call my connection. He tells me he'll be over at 6pm, but I'll be really lucky if he shows up by 8pm. Of course, he's stoned when he shows up, and doesn't bring the weed himself because he has to get it from "his guy". So I give him my money and wait. Then by 10pm, I'm starting to get antsy, so I call my connection and get his voicemail. He finally returns my call at 11pm, and apologizes. He couldn't hear the phone because he was playing video games at his guy's house. So he promises to stop playing video games and will be by to drop off my weed. By midnight, I give up and go to sleep. At 1:30am, my daughter comes into my room and tells me some guy came to her window asking for me. I go outside and it's my connection with my weed. He's totally shiatfaced. Gives me my weed and the bag looks small. I ask him if that's all, and he says he thinks it is, but when I look at the passenger seat in the car, I see a whole bunch of weed on it. "Is that my weed that spilled out of the bag onto your seat?" He laughs, apologizes, then reaches into his car and gives me the rest of my weed. Then, completely oblivious to the fact that it's 1:30am and he's driving through a quiet, upscale neighborhood, he cranks up Lil' Wayne loud on his car stereo and burns out right in front of my house.

It's been my experience that the people who sell weed are brain-addled and unreliable. I hate dealing with people like this. I'm a middle-aged professional and parent - the amount of people I know who actually still smoke weed I could probably count on one hand, so it's not as if it'd be easy for me to find another connection. If it were legal, I would be able to pick it up at my local convenience store and I wouldn't have to put up with all kinds of crap just to buy it.
