Jon iz teh kewl: Rev.K: xanadian: I wonder if there's any step in the poutine-making process where you could use marijuana...."I'll have the poutine with the special gravy, please..."Well THC is fat soluble, but I just don't see where you're going to find fat in poutine.but you have to cook it to "activate" the THC
Rev.K: FTA:If you want smaller government and you want the government out of people's private lives, you need to support the legalization of marijuana. It's the logically consistent viewpoint for a conservative.Not sure if conservative or clever plot....My view is the law criminalizes commerce. It criminalizes gardening. And it criminalizes your right to do what you want with your body so long as you're not violating anyone else's liberties.You sir, are no conservative.
SultanofSchwing: It's likely to just be a waste of time.
Shazam999: Rev.K: FTA:Ezra Levant though is far too right wing for any party in Canada though.
D135: SultanofSchwing: It's likely to just be a waste of time.For the moment it is a waste of time in Canada... I'm surprised US corporations don't lead the charge...If I was the CEO of Marlboro I would lobby the fark out of GOP, invest heavily in hydroponic and outdoor facilities and have legislation passed so that pot is sold in corner stores, in the same cardboard packs as cigarettes. Be the first company to have a license and the production capacity to be # 1 on a national scale. The lobby again to have access to the market (via licencing) restricted. Your ROI on lobbying is near infinite and the shareholders would earn a trillion dollars within 5 years./all those lawsuits from tobacco... Why don't I simply change my product line to one where there is less liability?
hubiestubert: It is pretty much the reason I support legalization.I don't smoke weed. I don't want to smoke weed. I don't care if folks do, so long as they aren't at work. I DO want to see industrial applications explored because it makes economic sense, and the protectionist aspect to protect cotton and logging is anti- competition. It will also mean our courts and jails and prisons will clog up less, it will help eliminate some of the systemic corruption that goes with current seizure laws, and it will put people to work. New industries, new applications, less strain on our legal system and penetiniaries.It SHOULD be something that good Conservatives embrace, the same as marriage equality, but folks have put a LOT of cash into hands to keep it illegal, and that's the issue. It is a protectionist view that favors not American firms, but select industries, and the hue and cry about the medical effects have long been used as a shield to disguise this.
SoundOfOneHandWanking: radarlove: Which, of course, is all moot anyways, since urinalysis tests are remarkably easy to beat.HINT: Half the employees who test clean smoked a joint on the way to the pee-lab.I've always said that if they're only doing urine tests, they're not trying to find drug users, they're trying to find stupid drug users.
sithon: yep , conservatives in Canada are far left of their US counterparts . Even the most conservative like Harper .
scottydoesntknow: hardinparamedic: You know, I've got an honest question for the THC Medical Advocates out there.THC is fat soluble, right? What would be wrong with the development of a transdermal patch system like they have for pain and nausea control with medicines currently on the market? It would be healthier and safer than inhalation (severe COPD and pulmonary conditions are aggrevated by inhaling smoke), and easier and cheaper than vaporizing.And why focus on THC? Why not the development of better cannabinoid substances which better target the endocanabanoid receptors you're using them for?They've already tried synthetic THC, look up Marinol. It's big pharma's way of saying "Hey look, we've got something that's like marijuana, but we control it (and by extension, profit from it)!"It's actually not very good at all. Since the patient can't actually control the dosage the same way they could by inhaling it, many patients experience nausea and headaches, the very thing it's supposed to relieve.It's also UNBELIEVABLY expensive. With one week's dose being more than a whole month's supply of the regular, illegal one.Most patients that are prescribed it give it up after a while and move back to the illegal stuff. It's easier to get, easier to control, and much less expensive.

lennavan: scottydoesntknow: Random drug tests are farking retarded and should be done away with. If you think someone is drugged up at work or their work is suffering, then test 'em.Random drug testing exists because targeting people specifically for drug tests leads to lawsuits. "Why did you think I was drugged up at work, is it because I'm black?"
Loadmaster: After they legalize the mj, how many new users will no longer be employable because of company drug policies?Or will companies be forced to allow employees to smoke weed and still have a job?
Electromax: Well the way people think regarding labels now, if you're a conservative you MUST hate pot along with hating gay marriage and abortions and immigrants and all other things in agreement with The Party Line. Conservatism can't just be a concept that people may agree with to varying degrees, or at varying points.That's what the talking heads on TV claim, anyway. You're either all or nothing. A Patriot or a RINO. Politics needs more people willing to say "I believe in X and not Y" without worrying first about their career. This might be easier with more than 2 parties in the US, I spose.
Jon iz teh kewl: the funny thing is, i've eaten weed directly out of the bag before and gotten stoned
