Reposting from a previous thread because it is relevant here:

I love all of these conservatives who talk shiat about freedom, liberty, and states rights but never really support policies that expand those rights.

My state of Washington showed everyone how it was done this year. We voted to extend to gay couples the LIBERTY to marry each other. We gave people the FREEDOM to use a relatively harmless drug if they want, and in the process set up a legal showdown between the rights of the states and the power of the federal government. We did all that stuff that conservatives are supposedly for, but I'm willing to bet that the author is horrified at our election results. Conservatives talk a big game, but I don't think they really are as in love with true freedom and liberty as they say, otherwise they would be on our side in regards to the Drug War and Gay Marriage.

1. I have no use whatsoever for marijuana.
2. I have no use for the government arresting so many marijuana users.
3. Cancer patients and glaucoma cases etc have lots of uses for marijuana.
4. This nightmare is Nixon's ghost's revenge. Pot smoker = college student = protesters against the Vietnam war = Democrat = Nixon enemy. Your father's Republican Party lives on in the form of Marijuana Prohibition.

A person's position on MJ legalization is one of my most trusted yardsticks for determining if I'll ever really be close friends with someone. I haven't smoked in years (was daily long ago) and likely will go indefinitely unless it falls into my lap, but if you're truly against legalization, we're going to have a hell of a time seeing eye to eye. It's not even that I'm passionate about the issue, it's just that being against weed correlates STRONGLY with a slew of other personality traits that are basically diametrically opposed to mine. In my anecdotal experience, anyway...

We can still be acquaintances and work well with each other, but we're on different paths.

TheHighlandHowler: ZAZ: There is no gravy train. Pot tourism only works when "legal" pot is rare. Divide number of stoners willing to travel by number of states where they can smoke.

Around here people were saying casinos will be great look at how much money Connecticut makes. But the total number of gamblers doesn't get much bigger if Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire all have casinos.

Harshing my buzz.


Even without pot tourism, there's already plenty of pot users in each state, and plenty of tax money to be made by taking the sales out of the black market and putting it in the corner store.

rka: Skirl Hutsenreiter: mongbiohazard: Fark yes... I'll be happy to treat CO like the Amsterdam of America. It's a gorgeous state, and would be a great place to hike around and smoke some spliffs while vacationing.

Sorry, still no smoking pot in public. Presumably this also includes the great outdoors.

Well I'd hate for someone blazing one up in the woods and starting a fire. To top it off it's usually bad to combine hiking at 8-10000 ft and smoking in the first place.

But ignoring both of those, how many cops do you see on the trail? I barely see any rangers at all.


Oh, I must respectfully disagree. The buzz wears off quick, but toking up before heading up a steep grind of a section of a hike is a real nice way to get through it. Definitely not for newbie smokers or flatlanders, but some of us are pros all the way around.

I know, right? I mean my neurosurgeon neighbor is smart, and naturally, he doesn't get high. You know how I know? I asked him, and he TOLD ME he doesn't get high. And my other neighbor, the surpreme court justice is smart, and naturally, he doesn't get high. You know how I know? I asked him, and he TOLD ME he doesn't get high. And my other other neighbor, the chief of police is smart, and naturally, he doesn't get high. You know how I know? I asked him, and he TOLD ME he doesn't get high.

Meanwhile, the guy who stands on the corner of 2nd and vine...you know the homeless dude. You know, the guy who has absolutely nothing to lose by letting you know that he gets high...the stupid guy...he gets high.

So clearly, the only logical conclusion is that only stupid people get high. It's the only possible explanation.

I'll take stoners over opiate/Xanax addicts any day. You ask them to pull some files or send an attachment, walk over ten minutes later, and they're passed out on their desks. Then no one can get rid of them because they're prescribed opiate/Xanax by their doctor, but are completely farking useless at all aspects of life.

Amos Quito: Ow! That was my feelings!: Amos Quito: phrawgh: Never fear, good Christian citizens, the ATF and federal government are coming to help you.


Hate to say it, but ^THIS^.

If you think the Feds are going to let these rogue States defy their AUTHORATAY, you're already so high that you have no need for legalization.

It's not about "health" or "safety", it's about POWER.

They lack the resources, and now the cooperation of the local cops, to go after small scale growers and possession crimes. Retail sales? Oh, yeah, that is a completely different animal. We shall see, but there are 100s of medical marijuana dispensaries openly operating right now in Colorado. Let's just say I'm glad the Mormon doesn't get to decide the Federal response.


First, I agree with the bolded 1,000%.

I don't presume that the Feds would send their boys in to bag dopers and small-time dealers, that would be silly. They have other means of coercion:

National Minimum Drinking Age Act

"The National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 (23 U.S.C. § 158) was passed on July 17, 1984 by the United States Congress as a mechanism whereby all states would become thereafter required to legislate the age of 21 years as a minimum age for purchasing and publicly possessing alcoholic beverages. Under the Federal Aid Highway Act, a state with a minimum age below 21 would be subjected to a ten percent decrease in its annual federal highway apportionment.[1]"

ALL states complied.

And if withholding money doesn't work, they can always ratchet it up.

[funnyanimalpicturescat.com image 250x200]


Ah, but for the Feds to withhold money from Colorado or Washington would require an act of Congress. So, for the first time in 40 years it would be 'debated' in the US Congress. I really doubt the prohibitionists and DEA want that to happen. The very act of having that debate is a loss for the prohibitionists. But, bring it on if they do, it is WAY past time we had a national conversation about the drug war.

I somehow think they won't simply accept the burden without some kind of backlash. That or them turning a blind eye.
Colorado may want this, but there's other interests that probably fear a successful example will flip surrounding states.

Look for a string of batfe screw ups or other nefariousness to put a bad spin on any good statistics from legalization.

Good for those states for regulating and taxing it. Less money to the cartels.


An employer can test you for tobacco or alcohol and base hiring decisions on that if they so choose to. Why would marijuana be any different in requiring a law (besides the fact there is no power to pass such a law)? Marijuana testing will change when it becomes so common place that finding employees becomes more of a burden.

They work good, thanks to the aging population. For whatever reason, once someone turns 60 they get addicted to nickle slots. You just need to give it a few more years for the aging population to catch up to the new casinos being built.

(Of course they'll all have to shut down once the boomers die off)
