AllUpInYa: My concern is that we'd be importing the fighting, terrorism and corruption that exists in Mexico. because of the drug trade.
Cartel grow ops, trying to dominate the market; using whatever means to remove competition from the market.

Is it a bit naive to think that if the borders are changed, that Cartels will give up their old ways?


One would think that things would also escalate in terms of violent and illegal activity. You put any animal in a corner and it is bound to bite. Your only options are to put the dog down or figure out a way to tame it. This won't tame the dog. People think that by miraculously legalizing it the cartels will cease to exist operations. No, they will adapt and be even harder to combat. The same thing holds true how wars used to be fought to how they are fought now. Before, it was clear cut who the aggressors or your enemy was, they wore color coded uniforms signifying "I am your enemy". Now, with guerilla style warfare taking precedence, it is hard to pinpoint just who your enemy is, how many of them there are, and what the rules for "winning" are. I don't think flushing the rats OUT of the sewer and letting them run around the city is going to turn them suddenly into cute little pet mice. They are still rats.

I find that hard to believe. 14 grams a day? Does he do anything besides chain smoke one after the other?


He doesn`t SMOKE it you fool, he just burns it. Some people do that. I have no idea why though. Most of the ones I know who do that have bipolar and put lots of tobacco with it so it burns away without being smoked.

The plant is found to be non-toxic with no, none, not any long term effects.

Except for lung cancer, but that's no big deal.


It`s so much not a big deal that you made that up to try to make it look bad...

Of course, you can supply a link or citation to back up the cancer from only smoking weed rather than the cancer from smoking tobacco. Please. I need a good laugh.

You ARE campaigning for the prohibition of tobacco and alcohol aren`t you? Don`t want to be a hypocrite!

/some of the biggest killers are cooking over open fires indoors and frying food. Both are very bad for your lungs

Maybe it keeps mosquitoes away.

Does anyone know what the pot law will actually do now? I mean, if you live in Washington st, how soon can you start buying it? I assume they have to set up distribution lines, figure out tax layers, etc... Is there a plan yet, or an ETA?

the money is in the banana stand: One would think that things would also escalate in terms of violent and illegal activity.


Like what happened when alcohol prohibition ended? You might get some sputters and gasps, but going by history - both in the USA and other countries, violence will decrease. They just can't afford it. I'm willing to consider the occasional mobster family going legit and entering politics to be a acceptible consequence.

To put it another way, I see it less of 'flushing rats out of a sewer' and more getting rid of their food. Like pests, get rid of their food/money and they'll eventually move on.

radarlove: So looks like Longmont is reversing. Interesting eh? I just heard on the news, "It's not clear at this time if licenses will be reinstated."
