The DEA has NOTHING on this bill. They are right and properly farked if voters legalize it this November in Colorado.

There's a provision in there that allows ANYONE to grow weed for personal use and to give it away to others. Even if there are no pot shops licensed by the state, the citizens will be growing weed by this time next year on a MASSIVE scale and the DEA is far too small to do anything about it. I highly doubt they have the resources to take on thousands of Colorado citizens. Weed is gonna be pouring out of that state and the entire country will eventually be saturated in nothing but great weed. So long, Mexican brick weed!!

It'll be a glorious thing to witness. :)

Rhode Island backed off implementing medical marijuana. State law requires state licenses. The feds warned state officials that they might go to prison as co-conspirators for giving out licenses. If state officials kept out of prison their list of licenses would still be subject to subpoena. Colorado's scheme has the same vulnerability. For now legalization should have no permits or taxes specific to marijuana, nothing to leave a paper trail.

There was a guy around here that was going around leaving a single pot plant in difficult/pain in the ass to reach places, but in public so it was clearly visible.

Places such as in the middle of a landfill. In the middle of a bunch of barbed wire at a construction site. In the middle of the thorn bushes at the public park. Hanging from a sign on the highway. Hanging from the antenna on a skyscraper. etc

Naturally, the authorities eventually got word of it. It was kind of amusing watching a team of 3 men risk their lives so that a plant would not be on top of a building collecting sunlight.

When I hear this argument, I usually suggest that we rely on actual roadside tests. Different people handle different levels of different substances differently. Some people can smoke a joint right before they go do construction work with no problem, some can't take a single hit without being laid out on the couch for the next several hours. If I can pass the roadside test without stumbling, slurring, having my attention taken away by a dog running by, falling asleep, etc then let me go on my way.

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.

There just isn't a huge demand for hemp products. Because cotton called and said "hey I'm way more comfortable and I don't smell funny." It's always been a backdoor way of trying to get legalization. And it's just a stupid as the medical MJ argument. No other prescribed drug would a doctor allow you to decide your own dose and get as many refills as you want. And while people might use it medically every person I know that has a medical card here in CA is using it for recreation.

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."

JackieRabbit: There's a lot of chatter in this thread about what the DEA would do. Well, the answer is: very little. The DEA is charged with going after drug smugglers and growers, not sellers or back yard growers. While they may assist with the effort, it would be the FBI and federal marshals, who would enforce the law, should Eric Cantor elect to pursue the federal government's authority in regard to enforcement of the CSA. As for whether a state or local law enforcement officer would arrest a federal agent for doing his duty, don't count on it. Federal officers acting within jurisdiction take precedence over the locals and interference with them is a serious offense.

But busting the corner pot store would probably not be the US Government's tactic. Rather,they would just start withholding funding from the state until they complied. I agree that this is a states rights issue, but the government can place any conditions they desire to block grants and other funding they give to the states.


Although I agree Congress *could* try to defund states that support MJ legalization, IMHO, that is not ever gonna happen. Why? Because then we would have an actual debate, in Congress, concerning whether MJ should be illegal and there is no way the prohibitionist want that. They want to maintain the status quo for as long as possible. No farking way Congress wants an open debate on this issue. I honestly hope I'm wrong, cause I'd love to see the Reefer Madness idiocy exposed to the light of day, but congress is cowardly and they will avoid this issue until it is mostly settled by the states.

Yeah--but I'm not exactly sure why. I don't buy the argument that Big Pharma is scared of pot. I'd be willing to bet they are ready for it, medical grade pot or some kind of THC patch or something. Am I supposed to believe that the alcohol industry is afraid and lobbying against it? I know a ton of people, legal or not, that will smoke and drink, just smoke, or just drink. I don't buy that either.

Why do we still care?


They are scared of it because there is absolutely no way they can control or regulate it if people want to grow it themselves. They already have a pill out called Marinol which uses synthesized THC. Unfortunately the pill sucks and people who have it prescribed routinely drop it (because of price, dosage issues, time to take effect, etc.) in favor of the natural, grown kind.

If big pharma can't make money off a plant that has known beneficial effects, then they will do everything in their power to stop it from becoming legal. Why would you buy 13 different pills for your chemotherapy when one puff of a plant can alleviate all the issues at once?

ShawnDoc: When California last tried legalization, the NorCal growers and a bunch of the dispensary owners helped fund the fight against it. The growers were complaining that their margins had already been hit by medical-mj, and that legalization would allow too much competition and further lower their margins. The dispensaries were against it, because despite the law saying they needed to be non-profit, many of them are set up in such a way to pay a lot of money to the owners (See the guy on Survivor from a few years ago who was bragging about all the money he was making as a dispensary owner).

Plus, now cops won't be able to claim "they smelled marijuana" as justification for an illegal search.

Also Marinol.


Marinol sucks ass though. Since big pharma would have no way of capitalizing on legalization, they decided to synthesize THC and put it in pill form. The only problem with that is the patients hate it and routinely switch back to the grown cannabis. The effects of marinol take anywhere from 1-3 hours to take effect, wheras smoking it takes effect immediately. Since the pill comes in predetermined doses, the patient's can't control intake either, and many complain of effects being too-intense.

Plus, now cops won't be able to claim "they smelled marijuana" as justification for an illegal search.

Massachusetts courts decided the smell of burnt marijuana no longer justified a search after possession of less than an ounce was decriminalized. Raw marijuana is presumed not to generate an odor in legal quantities and they can still search you if they smell it.

When California last tried legalization, the NorCal growers and a bunch of the dispensary owners helped fund the fight against it. The growers were complaining that their margins had already been hit by medical-mj, and that legalization would allow too much competition and further lower their margins. The dispensaries were against it, because despite the law saying they needed to be non-profit, many of them are set up in such a way to pay a lot of money to the owners (See the guy on Survivor from a few years ago who was bragging about all the money he was making as a dispensary owner).

/California has decriminalized it by the way. The most you get now is a ticket for possession if you couldn't be bothered to jump through the medical-MJ hoops.

skink: I am trusting other Farkers to be better read, here...But don't the licensing requirements only apply for commercial production and sale? If legal=legal, in the state of Colorado, it would seem to be a non-starter for local LEOs to be asking who can and cannot grow weed in their yard. Am I missing something? Is it the cold medicine?



I think its akin to homebrewing beer.  Its legal to do it (there is some limit of some sort that I think is far above what even the most serious hobbyists would reach).  Its legal to give it away.  Not legal to sell.
