It's always been a backdoor way of trying to get legalization. And it's just a stupid as the medical MJ argument.

Why can't we just be honest with ourselves and go "we want to get high and pot is as safe or safer than alcohol."



While in the crunchy pac nw I do see a hell of a lot of hemp products. and lots of them are actually pretty nice. But yeah, I agree.

Oznog: Weaver95: i'm pretty sure that if Colorado does this, the DEA will go f*cking nuts.

Interstate Commerce Clause, biyaches. The 2005 SCOTUS case Gonzales v. Raich clarified that very subject- the ICC provision of the US Constitution DOES mean federal laws on marijuana supersede state laws allowing it.

Actually, a law "allowing something" is a funky case, although hardly unique. The US system of laws and rights holds that unless something is specifically illegal, it is your right to do so. As such, it's unnecessary to make laws saying it's LEGAL to do something.

Not all govts hold to this. Certain dictatorships make it clear "in practice" that you're supposed to "do things" only as directed by the govt. That's a polar opposite of rights.

It is my right to grow sunflowers and no law is needed to say I may grow sunflowers, you don't WANT a system of law which requires specific permission from the govt to DO any given thing.
It is common for laws to state things are unlawful, but list EXCEPTIONS of what is not unlawful in the test. That's a subtle difference, though. It's limiting what you're making illegal in the scope of the law, but not a law asserting it is legal to do something.

Sure, we still have bureaucracy where "you must get car insurance". But that's not actually the law. You must get car insurance to drive on public roads. And that's not the law- the law says it's "unlawful to drive on public roads unless insured", and would never say "you may drive on public roads with insurance". Subtle but important wording difference, especially when trying to combine overlapping.laws. Logically it's very difficult to combine "you may drive with insurance" and "you may drive with a Driver's License", that's an OR condition. "It is unlawful to drive on public roads without a licence" and "it is unlawful to drive without insurance" logically interact with no ambiguity.


The state doesn't need to "allow" anything. They just need to remove some wording from state laws, then stop enforcing federal law for the feds.

Not once, have I ever heard of anybody getting busted by the DEA alone. It's always some over zealous county mounty calling them in for manpower help.

Removing it at the state level, would be very effective legalization.

The insurance companies will work shiat out on their own. They are good at that.

Hemp is great for clothes, archival paper, healthy oil and seeds to eat, etc

yeah man, and it's great for those necklaces so you can show everyone what a non-conformist you are.

stop with this retardedness. No one wants your hemp crap they just want to get high.

I have a hemp rug that was my great-grandparents'. What does that 100+ year old rug have to do with getting high?

Hemp doesn't smell funny. It's just as comfortable as cotton after it's broken in and lasts much much longer. The paper doesn't eat itself. Hemp oil/seed is a wonder food.

No other prescribed drug is as safe as cannabis. It's safer than aspirin or Tylenol. It should be over the counter.

And furthermore, everyone is copping to wanting it for recreational use. It just so happens that hemp is pretty neeto too. You seem mad about it.

That's been said thousands of times, yet the gov't refuses to listen. So yes, there needs to be backdoor ways to get it legalized since the front door (the obvious door) is locked, dead-bolted, and welded shut.

I'll be the first to admit that I want it legalized for recreational use, but since that's been shot down, I will find other avenues.

No one gives a shiat whether the t-shirt they wear is made from hemp or cotton. Comfort and smell is the same. Hemp is a stronger, more durable fiber, though, so hemp clothing will last longer.

If hemp farming were legalized, and farmers found out that growing hemp was easier than growing cotton, and started switching over, so that a comparable economy of scale developed re: cotton vs hemp, the choice becomes a no-brainer:

All other things being equal, hemp clothing will be cheaper and last longer. That's a pretty simple consumer choice, no?

Remember that guy who gnawed off the other guy's face in Miami a few months ago? It was originally reported that he was high on bath salts, but then it came to light that no bath salts were found in his system. There was, however, one solitary drug found in his system. Anyone care to remind me what drug that was?

Oh, that's right. It was marijuana.

Weaver95: i'm pretty sure that if Colorado does this, the DEA will go f*cking nuts.


I wonder if Amazon sells popcorn by the ton.

ZAZ: For now legalization should have no permits or taxes specific to marijuana, nothing to leave a paper trail.


I think a initiative should just legalize possession of any quantity. Specifically drop sale of any quantity to a misdemeanor with a stipulation that the max sentence is no more than $250 total of fines, fees, and court costs, or three months in jail. Added stipulation that your record gets automatically expunged after a year.

Meaning if you have a joint, you're not violating state law. If you have a semitruck filled with the stuff, you're not violating state law. If they catch you selling the stuff without a license, they can punish you, but it'll cost the state money.

Duke_leto_Atredes: This was Settled in 1865 Grant V Lee Appomattox courthouse


April 12 1861, when the state of South Carolina attacked the Federal Government. It' just took four years to force an agreement.

My take on that is even if the South had succeeded in succeeding war was inevitable, likely the Confederacy would have attempted to expand into Federal Territory in the South West, invaded Mexico and Central America, or aligned themselves with a foreign power against the US. Any of those would have resulted in a full scale war.

JohnBigBootay: js34603: Dude I don't live anywhere near Colorado. I wish I did, even before this, but I live way over here in North Jesus Land. I was referring to national legalization.

/I am pretty lazy though


I don't know what NC is like. But being pretty old and having moved about the country a fair amount it is my opinion that the worst weed in the nation is in Alabama. I mean damn. Maybe you could make some good rope out of it or something. Pretty spoiled in the Pac NW - BC to the north, Oregon and Cali to the South. To be honest the biggest problem is finding stuff that's not too strong.


I wish I had that problem. When I ask the suppliers around here whether they have a sativa or indica they usually respond with "no it's weed".

I'm sure there is more high quality buds available near the college towns, but being well past college age I dont have the connections anymore to acquire it.

It's a bit like being a beer snob somewhere you can only acquire Budweiser or if you insist and are willing to overpay, Heinken.

Rope and paper called and said "We don't have to be 'comfortable' and after processing we don't smell".

And then I got really confused as to how cotton, rope, and paper were all able to make phone calls so I fired up a joint.


These threads are always amusing and it always brings out the misinformed fear based people - that makes me chuckle. Such ignorance.
A-Hemp is much more durable than cotton for any number of things. I have a pair of hemp pants that were made outside the states because of stupid laws. I love them. If the materials were grown here it would provide jobs.
B- Legalization does not encourage use and quite frankly if it did that might be good. I've met many people that should smoke it. I've been around it all my life and have 1 or 2 hits on rare occasion. I am eligible for a medical card but have never bothered to get one. MrS doesn't smoke at all and we are both voting it in.

It's a goddamn weed with so much useful potential that politicians and big business want it illegal.

There aren't accurate tests for some of the new formulas of street drugs. Are you a dumbass or antagonistic troll? Weed stays in the system for a month, the effects of it are short term.

Serious question: has that been proven in studies? Real ones, I mean. With scientists and blinds and stuff.

How can something be safer than aspirin, anyways? Aspirin is pretty damn safe. Statistically speaking it seems like it would be difficult to measure a margin of safety that razor-thin.

Yeah. There have been. I've seen quite a few but am not looking them up for you. Essentially it's like this... Pot isn't fatal. You simply can't consume enough of it to cause death by overdose. You'll feel mighty weird if you try and you might need to take a nap, but you're going to survive it with no lasting ill effects.

You could kill yourself with pot... but it would require dropping a seriously heavy bail of it on yourself.

Going just by overdoses involving them, there were 52 deaths in 2000 from aspirin overdose (FDA.gov link). Marijuana, on the other hand, has 0 (that's zero) deaths related to overdose in all of recorded history. 

Hell you can overdose on water and die (like that woman who died while trying to win a Wii). Not saying that weed is safer than water, but it's crazy that something that has no mortality rate is still considered a Schedule 1 "most dangerous drug ever" by the DEA

It's obvious that you are ignorant of the many, many valuable uses of hemp. Maybe you should educate yourself.

Also, if you were not so foolish you might realize that for many, many refillable prescriptions, the patient does indeed set the dose. The doctor asks "hows that working for you?" or does tests, and based on the answers or the results of the tests from the patients body, the dose is adjusted. Do you see how that works?

pedobearapproved: Why can't we just be honest with ourselves and go "we want to get high and pot is as safe or safer than alcohol."



Speak for yourself. I don't use drugs but would like some comfortable clothes that last longer than cotton. I bet hemp would make good art supply paper too.

OK, so you just want to get high, good for you. You couldn't just say so unless you could disrespect hemp in the same breath? Why can't you just be honest, and say that you want to get high?

I always find it weird that pot heads don't want to keep weed illegal and corporations don't want to make it legal. There is a lot of money to be made off of marijuana and with Tobacco being taxed through the roof selling weed is a great source of revenue. With weed legal though, pot heads wont be cool. If you can go to your local Walgreens and pick it up they completely lose there culture. It will be like Woodstock all over again.

This. Cunning plan, etc. For better or for worse, marijuana/THC is still a schedule 1 controlled substance. All this will do is stir up a hornet's nest of jurisdictional fights like it did in Cali. (See "State-Licensed Medical Dispensaries - DEA Raids On")


Good.

Lehk: tricycleracer: Question for the medical card holders out there: Can a company refuse to hire you for a positive drug test even if you have a medical card?

yes they can.

however there is nothing that would keep states from banning MJ tests from employment screenings, except where required by federal law


What about that pesky freedom to contract?

From my understanding, companies can refuse to hire you if you drink or smoke cigarettes. Why would weed be any different?

Courts in Colorado are already turning away mmj-related breach of contract cases due to Federal law conflicts. They can legalize it but you still need to break legs if you get screwed over.

There is still the issue of driving under the influence of any substance which inhibits your ability to do so, illegal, legal, perscription or otherwise, and at the current time there IS NO MEDICAL way to test such. If I smoke at home on Saturday and get stopped on Monday there is no reasonable way to tell whether I am 'currently' high or it is just a hold-over. Until that can be resolved I forsee problems.

ChaffedTitty: Funny, I've had a legal cannabis based business in Colorady for over a year.


So you run a Government Mandated Treatment Facility (like the ones the Judge makes you go to if you get caught with a joint) or what?

No info = suspicion of trickery
