MFAWG: I'm so old I remember when legalizing the weed was a perfectly respectable right wing position, held by none other than the father of modern conservatism:


Interested in legalizing marijuana.

Not that interested.

Giblet: You must have missed the news. That was tested back in the 1800's and it turns out that you will do what the United States government tells you to do. Strike the 4th, the 10th, and the 1st is limited to designated zones.


Well government knows what is best and that whole consitution thing is (so I have seen posted by various farkers):

(1) an outdate piece of paper

(2) Written by a bunch of old white men who owned slaves.

(3) A "living document" which they define as government can reinterpret it to mean what they need it to at the time

(4) The general werlfare clause means government can do whatever it wants for our own good as they define it..

To think otherwise means you don't like roads or schools and would prefer to live in Somalia.

4 MORE SPLIFFS!!!!

/of dope

Sort of not kidding: being the guy that got teh weeds legalized would be a nice legacy.

And it would make the right-wingers kill their own in rage. yay!

Amusing as to what you think of as right-wingers

The U.S. Department of Justice issued a reminder that under federal laws marijuana is still illegal. The Department will still enforce the Controlled Substances Act even in states that have now made marijuana legal for recreational use.

And that is where you get into a sticky 10th amendment issue. "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

/This is why we had to get a constitutional amendment to ban alcohol.
//Anthony Scalia has recently mentioned he's big on the 10th amendment. I wonder what he'll think of this when it finally bubbles up to the supreme court.

Scalia tossed the 10th Amendment in a case involving TeH WEeDs at one time, IIRC?


Funny how nobody , except me, likes the 10th Amendment unless it fits their agenda.
I would say ,except for some interstate commerce aspects Obama care is a violation of the 10th and the same should apply to drug laws. Feds can regulate cross border activity but the states should be able to what goes on with in their own boundaries.

Washington state law should apply to only to grown and consumed in the in the state. If it comes from or is sent out the state then expect the feds to step in.

I think it should be legalize, not of any personal desire to use the stuff but that government resources could be put to better use like securing the border.

FTFY

Nope subby was correct: I job shared between 41 people who each work an hour a week. This is Obama's new ecomony.

1/10


I give it 3/10. The germ of humor was there, but it needed to be connected back to the drugs and Obama's shiftless supporters - a few misspellings never hurt either. Like this:

Nope subby was c0rrect: I job shared between 41 lazy burnouts who eech work a1hr week. This is Obamacarez new ecomony [sic misspelling original] by and for the drugged and lechers.

OtherBrotherDarryl: I wonder if people will stop being paranoid freaks when they're high once it's legal.


Probably, but it won't be because it's legal.

Growers will do a lot more selective breeding on the weed they have and produce strains that won't make you paranoid.

Most weed these days is extremely high in THC these days, since we used to think that's all that got you high, and that the 40 something other components in weed aren't important. Surprise surprise, they are important. THC alone makes people (well, lab rats in the study) exhibit paranoid behavior. If you start dropping the THC levels down, and add more of the other endocanabanoids, such as CBD, you no longer get paranoid behavior.

/SCIENCE!

can't get excited about something the federal government can (and will) walk in and lay to waste whenever they damn well please. and that time will probably be when many people are making paychecks, investing money into business and happily enjoying their lives. what's the point. it's like giving candy to a baby so you can take it away.

Muta: bwilson27: With weed, no such easy test to check if you're inebriated. This is a problem that will have to be solved first.

Why does there need to be a test first? We didn't have tests for drunk driving when prohibition was lifted. Necessity is the mother of invention. If there is a need for a field sobriety test that includes weed then it will be developed.


Again: there is a blood test for THC, and I believe there is also a saliva test. That was the whole impetus for legalization on the law enforcement side IMHO. Now that it can be a money grab for DUI, everybody is OK with it.

special20: OtherBrotherDarryl: As Washington state employees, would these folks be WPEA union members and subject to drug testing? Ironic if that's the case.

Think this through... marijuana is legal in that state where they are employed. Drug tests shows marijuana usage. Your point is?


That's the problem- Alcohol is legal, too, but you can't go to work drunk.. Or drive. But there's an easy test for that. With weed, no such easy test to check if you're inebriated. This is a problem that will have to be solved first.
