Can't help but think that this wouldn't be a problem if the shiat were growing everywhere legally, but cue the Fark anti-pot brigade claiming that this is proof that cannabis causes violent crime in 5...4...3...

I haven't touched pot in over 30 years (I was a drinker most of my adult life) and I don't GAF. I will, however, point out that most people who don't have a good argument for their position will instead attempt to marginalize and discredit those with opposing viewpoints.

Let me guess... she has 13 grandchildren.

The problem with cannabis legalization isn't that there are no good arguments for it- the problem is that there are so many good arguments for it that it makes the movement to legalize appear to be scattered and disjointedly grasping at straws.

I'm all for legalizing weed. Personally, that fake weed/spice/herbal incense stuff should carry the same penalties as heroin or cocaine. That stuff is really dangerous.

While bear spray was pretty effective in this case, shouldn't you need a bigger arsenal if you're growing pot?

About, oh, 13 years ago, when I was in my mid 20's my grandma underwent treatment for ovarion cancer.

She lost her appetite and was rapidly losing weight. Her doctor told her 'Off the record' if she smoked some weed it would help.

Of course my grandma had never touched pot and was a bit scared, and did not want to do it alone,.

There is nothing more surreal than sitting in your mothers kitchen and getting baked with your 78 year old jewish granny, your mom, and aunt.

Whenever you have something of value, somebody's going to have an eye out toward stealing it. Even if legalized, marijuana isn't going to become worthless (our local legal pot dispensaries, while they lasted, sold the stuff for hefty sums) and there will always be some POS who'll find it easier to take yours rather than grow his own. Probably fewer of them will arm themselves and do it via home invasion, but the number won't go to zero. That said, I have no problem with legalization, I just don't harbor fantasies about how it'll solve all problems from tax revenue to incarceration to crime to violence.

Certainly not, but you have to admit that keeping it a black-market commodity inordinately inflates its value and draws unscrupulous black-market criminal elements to it- the kind of people who are okay with stealing, or perhaps beating/murdering an elderly woman. When it is as commonplace as tomatoes and other produce, it is going to lose a tremendous amount of that value, and criminals will have to find something else to steal and beat people for.

Yep, when I was a kid I had a few buddies in which their parents smoked. One night we're in their basement getting high and this old lady (their grandmother) comes walking down. I didn't know what to do. She promptly grabs the bong, takes a huge rip, blows it out (no cough) and says I use to do this all the time when I was your age. I was geeking out after I saw that.

We used to get baked out of our minds at my friend Jay's house, in his basement.

His mom was a single mother who was completely oblivious. Sadly he passed away in '08 and I went flew back for the funeral.

Afterwards in the church parking lot, his mom just stood there looking at us, over 20 grown men, who had spent countless hours smoking weed in her basement 20 years ago.

She put out her arms, and we all rushed into hug her, crying and she was said 'my boys, did you really think I didn't know what you were doing?'

We were stunned.

ANYBODY who thinks that ANYTHING is a magic-bullet cure-all panacea for ANY of life's problems is either an IDIOT or a LIAR trying to SELL YOU SOMETHING.

Only a farking moron would think otherwise.

Weed will not fix the budget, or eliminate crime, or bring about total world peace. Neither will Barack Obama, Mitt Romney, or Ron Paul. Nothing will. But some things will take us in the right direction, and some will take us in the wrong direction.

Legalization of cannabis will take us a great step in the right direction, on a great many of these issues, and its prohibition has clearly taken us in the wrong direction on a great many.

There are no fix-alls in life. Only hard decisions, perseverance, hope, and patience.

CSB time...

Paul Ryan is my state representative. A couple years ago, I wrote him a personal letter stating the facts about marijuana and why I think it should at least be legal for those who need it most, such as cancer patients. A bill was circulating in our state legislature in favor of legalizing medical marijuana and I was showing my support for it.

About a week later, I receive an email from him stating why he thinks it should remain illegal. On that same day, a helicopter flies over my house and hovers there for a good bit of time. It got really, really close too. Afterward, it took off and that was that.

Coincidence?

See how that works? As long as you keep pot smokers terrified of the long arm of the law, no "law-abiding" person will come out and admit that they smoke it. So the only pot smokers of note are those who are already kind of shady, or they're kids who haven't yet learned caution. Even the people who've come out for it make damn sure that they say they need it for medicinal purposes.

And then they get accused of using the MM excuse as a back-door to legalization. Yeah, that's how it has to be--because anyone who actually came right out and said that they smoke pot, it should be legal, and they're a regular citizen, they quickly wouldn't be. And then they'd never get a job again.

/You don't know who I am, and I don't smoke pot either 
//How the fark did Prohibition get ended anyway? How did it get enacted in the first place? If you want to see the utter stupidity of our lawmakers, just look at Prohibition. And that wasn't just a law, it was a farking constitutional amendment.

I had a neighbor who was a city police officer... He told me that he would always rather arrest someone who was smoking weed over someone who was drinking... The reason was simple as he told me... The dunk he'd often have to fight viciously and hog-tie for everyone... However the stoner... all hopped up on weed... he (all though policy required it) wouldn't even have to handcuff AND could put in the front seat. The stoner was almost always docile and at worst wold whine and whine some more but not fight if yelled at sternly, whereas the dunk would almost always fight.
