Igor Jakovsky: I'm for legalization of weed nationwide. Doing it on a state by state basis is a start though. I don't see the feds leaving Washington alone. Look what Obama's DEA is doing to the legal medical marijuana shops in Cali despite originally saying they would be left alone. I'm for states rights on this issue if the feds wont change the national classification of pot, but then again I'm for states rights on a lot of things.
Jon iz teh kewl: but what about employers that demand that employees pass random drug testss?
Great Porn Dragon: Jon iz teh kewl: Jesus saw demons. prove me wrongFirst, there's a few bits to sort out:a) Prove the historical existence of a person by the name of Jesus the Christ, even under the alternate names Yeshua bin Yosef, Yeshua the Nazarene, or even "Rabbi Joshua" in such a way that the person described is unmistakably the same figure described in the Bible.Difficulties: Firstly, it is not even historically agreed that the person known as Jesus as described in the Bible existed--there are theories that a lot of the more "mythic" aspects of the story of Jesus are in fact glosses from other non-Abrahamic religions that the early Christian church may have been influenced by including Mithraism and Zoroastrianism.Secondly, as will be noted, even the four books of the Bible with the closest thing to a "historical" account of Jesus have undergone heavy editing between initial writing and revision, with some books having upwards of six authors and various additions before canonisation.Thirdly, the existence of Jesus (even as a rather eccentric rabbi of the time) is poorly attested outside of Christian sources of the period--especially unusual considering that the supposed formative act of the Christian faith is the execution-as-a-supposed-revolutionary-and-resurrection of Jesus is not recorded outside of Christian sources, and even the execution of someone around the time considered a claimant to the throne of Judah (which would have been a big deal, especially considering that the Roman Empire destroyed Jerusalem over an attempted uprising in 70 CE and formally incorporated Judaea as a province of the Roman Empire rather than as a protectorate--yes, at the time of Jesus, Judah or Judaea was basically to the Romans as American Samoa or Guam are to the US). About the only reliable account we have of Jesus from a non-Christian source is from Judaeo-Roman historian Josephus, and even his records are "after the fact" and more a record of post-Second-Temple/early Great Dia ...
flashfearless: Weed is a serious waste of time and demotivator. If you use, you're a tool.
Madduck: Real Women Drink Akvavit: so the biggie would be what to make first once I got the butter part nailed. Hmmm....Making butter is fairly easy, after straining through cheesecloth, I would put the melted butter/water into the freezer. Once frozen, it is a you break off the butter from the ice, and it is nicely seperated and most of the particulate matter that the cheesecloth didnt catch, is caught with this method.I have also made infused olive oil for cooking. Same principle as making butter.

qsblues: I have absolutely no problem with legalizing weed. I used to puff bales of it back in the day. It's a harmless recreational drug. My deal is, being a recovering alcoholic, that this stuff IS legal, and should be under more scrutiny. The fact that the gubment makes millions off of taxes on it, and BILLIONS off of incarcerating casual weed smokers, means that it just plain won't happen. But, people that drive while stoned still get into wrecks; much less than drunk drivers, but it still happens.I have no issue with what people do in the privacy of their own homes. My wife smokes weed, to my detriment, since I'm in recovery and have no support from her whatsoever. I told her not to bring it in the house, and she does anyway, and goes out to smoke as well. She's driving while impaired, and I have a serious problem with that, being as I have 2 DUI's under my belt. I had to get legal action to stop her from driving with the kids while she was stoned, since "our kids are friends with their kids". I called bullshiat, and got a lawyer. Bottom line is, if you want to get high, by all means, have at it. But if you're in a relationship with someone in recovery and still want to get high, you are doing SERIOUS damage./end rant
demonwolf04: Fail in Human Form I say 70 - 30 chance the Feds step in with an injunction. Given how they're treating medical cannabis I think they'll come down hard to..... nip this in the bud.It's going to be more difficult for states to tax and regulate. Were they to simply decriminalize it, it would merely become the feds responsibility to enforce it (I'm not sure you can get a court order to force the state to pass a law or to require the state use resources to enforce something that isn't a law). In states that want to become the distributor of it, they're ignoring federal law, which is no better than Arizona and their border shenanigans. Besides, from what I understand, states that only sell liquor at state-owned shops have their own issues. Tax it? You bet. Be the sole distributor for the state? May be time to rethink that.
tomWright: Maybe we start obeying the 9th and 10th Amendments and leave to the States all authority not granted to the feds? You know, like how Alcohol required an Amendment to prohibit at the federal level?Wait, that's just crazy talk. Obey the Constitution? BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHhHhCOUGHCOUGHWHEEEEZE
Sgygus: what happens the morning after ...The respective state legislatures pass laws to delay, obstruct, and if possible repeal, the will of the people.
Real Women Drink Akvavit: How timely an article! We've got about a month or so until harvest in the Emerald Triangle, which isn't too terribly far from me. I'm not a pot smoker, but I do have some problems with my back and hip from decades of mosh pits and skateboard parks. I'd love to get my hands on some of the "shake" (I think that's what they call it) and experiment with cannabis butter. I'm a wonderful cook, so the biggie would be what to make first once I got the butter part nailed. Hmmm....
scotto: I love how Mcaffrey looks so high in the picture.
