It must suck for you, you appear to have a tenuous grasp at best. I don't really believe you even smoke weed. If you do smoke weed, your weed really, really sucks.

namegoeshere: The mayor of Ithaca just told the chief of police to ignore minor pot posession: I have directed the Ithaca Police Department to focus on other issues that will more effectively protect the public. Between dealers of hard drugs and stopping violent crime, our officers have more important things to be focusing on than low-level marijuana offenses."

So, yeah.


Yeah, that's how it is all over California, which is why the Feds have set up shop here - they need shops too, right?

I bet they'll really like moving their families to Washington (it's southern Arizona where no one wants to live and work, federally speaking).

BronyMedic: Not to mention he's just poking the dynamite monkey that is the FDA to come down on him for selling an unapproved substance who's only official legitimate use (According to the FDA, that is.) is as an appetite induction agent in Chemotherapy and HIV Wasting Syndrome.


Right. Just like the FDA is going to come down on coffee shops for selling an unapproved substance full of a psychoactive drug.

Tell me how it's different, in ethical terms.

$275? Sorry, but that seems a little, um, high.

knobmaker: Right. Just like the FDA is going to come down on coffee shops for selling an unapproved substance full of a psychoactive drug.


You do realize that coffee is regarded as safe for human consumption by the FDA, right? It becomes different when you sell it "pure" or mixed in with other medicines ("No-Doze"), and that "pure" caffiene is considered a pharmaceutical agent that can only be marketed for conditions it's considered effective and approved for, right?

Marijuana, on the other hand, has been a Schedule I/Schedule II drug (Marinol) for most of the 20th and all of the 21st century. Medicinal dispensaries get away with selling it because they don't market it as safe and effective for treating an illness, disease, or condition, and it's treated as an "off-label" drug by the FDA for those purposes. It's illegal to advertise it, but not illegal for a doctor or intermediate practitioner to recommend for the condition.

On the other hand, the FDA can come down hard on commercial recreational sales of the drug because it was never approved for general sale as "safe for human consumption", and is not an OTC medication. In addition, it cannot fall under the realm of a "dietary supplement" because it is considered a prescription substance.

It doesn't matter about an ethical debate. Ethically, if you want to touch on it, there is a major problem with pushing substances for conditions it is not proven to be effective in treating by research. Nor was it intended to spark an ethical debate. I was meerly pointing out why I have said decriminalization is going to be FAR easier than retail sale for recreational use or commercialization as a recreational substance alongside grandfathered substances like ethanol and tobacco.

AbbeySomeone: NobleHam: buckler: arentol: Is this guy aware that what he is doing is highly illegal in the state of Washington? Why would he admit to criminal actions to reporters like this?

You have to be licensed to sell marijuana in Washington, and nobody is licensed yet. So yeah... Kinda breaking the law there buddy, and while the police are looking the other way right now at people smoking in public, that doesn't mean they are ignoring people selling the stuff, especially ones doing so in such open and blatant disregard for the law.

I'm sure he's aware. FTA mentions going to various of his friends' houses. It's possible each of them has an ounce or less, and that the fee is for the cost of the tour, with the weed being "given away" gratis to tour members. Like if I were homebrewing again, I couldn't sell my beer, but I could charge $5 for an empty cup and give the beer away for free.

I'm not so sure he's aware and I don't think the law works like that. If you're advertising a weed tour, and say that weed is included in the price, then you're selling weed. If you advertise it as a regular tour which is weed friendly, and then give out weed along the way, that would be fine.

Of for crissake. Some of you are paranoid and obtuse. The guy is conducting a tour, the price is for the tour. Weed samplings are complimentary gifts. He f*cked up by announcing to the media that the weed was included in the price; had he phrased it as complimentary samples it would have been better.


Based on his appearance, his quotes in the article, and this^ other article, I don't get the sense that Robert Flatt has a very good concept of the new law. (Nor, from my research, does he have any prior experience running tours.) I don't claim to know all the ins and outs either, but I think if you advertise that the weed is complementary, if the weed is a selling point of the tour, you're going to get in trouble until the licensing rules are written and in effect.

Yeah, I don't know anything about Marijuana. An ounce sounds like almost nothing at all to me so I wouldn't think that would be enough to share around an entire tour group. But I have no basis for judging, so if you say that would work then I have to believe you on this one. Sounds like he found a loophole. There is still the issue of how each location gets another legal ounce in time for the next tour, but I think the police will give even that a pass until the licenses are out there and in use, then they will go after a guy like this if they think he isn't purchasing from a legal retailer.

Frederf: OnlyM3: // can't legislate morality, right libs?

Is this where I point out that every single law written during the whole of human history is legislated morality? Tax codes, Roe v. Wade, oil platform regulation, education mandate, etc. are allllllllll morality-turned-statute. That's what law is.


What's "moral" about not copying that floppy?

Fjornir: Problem is giving it away is still illegal...


Sellings legal. farkings legal. So why is selling...

Ok why is it that most pot looks like a big scary moldy alien plant?

I've never smoked it, and if not for seeing an evidence locker full of it during my internship, I could say I've never seen it either...

Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: Verzio: LordJiro: Well, except that his marijuana stances are one of several things actual liberals (as opposed to the centrists that compose most of the Democratic party) criticize him on fairly frequently. Y'know, kinda blowing the "Obamessiah" meme out of the water in the process?

Yeah, the liberals are really tough on Obama; you can tell because they ran a primary challenge against him in order to force him to address their issues.

Eh, sitting presidents almost never face primary challenges, it says nothing about how libs feel about how Obama is doing.



Article is from 09, but only a single time has a sitting president lost the nomination...

The WA pot party is BYOweed.

No gifting allowed.

You are allowed to have it, and you don't have to tell the officer where you got it. Gift it in private if you must. A business should not, and will not be gifting pot.

Fark Me To Tears: thisisyourbrainonFark: Most cases involving small amounts have a larger crime, like DUI, attached to them, and the possession aspect is usually dismissed if the accused takes a plea.

It's going to be fun to watch the pot-induced DUI cases stack up. I wonder how many people need to be killed on the roads by people under the influence of legally-smoled pot before this nonsense finally gets repealed. It's not going to work, folks. Just how stupid is the whole thing going to be allowed to get before you're willing to admit it?


You clearly have no farking idea of what you are talking about and are just making an ill informed judgement on what shiatty misinformation your narrow little mind has absorbed.
/ does the idea that maybe your world view isn't the only true and correct way make you piss just a smidge in your pleated dockers?
