But alcohol is just fine.

Well if anyone should be able to spot a pinhead it would be Bill.

That's probably the nicest thing Bill has ever called me.

So?
 
2014-01-06 04:09:32 PM  
"Because of the children"?

Really?

The only reason children have unfettered access to pot is because it's illegal, you pinhead.

The people watching this guy are pathetic.

Pot isn't toxic tho, nor is it addictive. Hells, caffeine is more addictive than cannabis. But hey, if the GOP wants to divide their time, money and manpower to fighting legalization of cannabis AND stopping gay marriage AND repealing Obamacare AND cutting welfare benefits AND making abortion illegal...then who am I to stop them?

However, the veritable cornucopia of pharmaceuticals Bill's geriatric audience is perpetually ripped to the tits on is perfectly ok.

Children can't possibly be influenced by or obtain any of those perfectly legal heroin and morphine derived pills cluttering up grandpa's medicine cabinet.

Right Bill?

A nice MJ edible would do wonders for Bill O. Sometimes he can be a stand up guy, then he turns around makes you wonder if he has always been a worthless POS. It's almost like the 2 sides are having a war inside his head. A nice cookie here and there might just tip that battle to the favor of stand up guy.

I think it would do him better than alcohol.  I can't imagine him leaving late night phone messages like this if he were just high:

So anyway I'd be rubbing your big boobs and getting your nipples hard, kinda' kissing your neck from behind... and then I would take the other hand with the falafel [sic] thing and I'd put it on your pussy but you'd have to do it really light, just kind of a tease business....

This stuff has been happening since people figured out they could bake magic brownies.

Laxer marijuana laws linked to increase in kids' accidental poisonings

Simple logic says that with the increased manufacture and sale of food laced with marijuana that kids see as treats dictates that there will be more kids eating those treats by accident, or on purpose not unlike sneaking a drink from the folks liquor cabinet.

Why is it fashionable to push for legalization of pot, yet cigarette smoking has been deemed the great Satan and slowly crept closer to being outlawed?

Study after study shows no net monetary loss to society from smoking, but it's held as a given in many quarters making it harder to smoke will "lower the strain on the medical system".

Marcus Aurelius: The only reason children have unfettered access to pot is because it's illegal, you pinhead.


No shiat.  Take away the black market and remind adults to hide their stash when living with kids and watch access plummet as the street dealers disappear.  Long term, I expect usage to go down as its cool factor goes down, just as it has in the Netherlands.

The hardest part will be to get people to hide their stash.  People already seem to have that problem with Rx drugs.  Just raising awareness should help on both counts, though.

there is a guy who shows up at the ER at my local hospital ever month or so because he thinks he has OD's on pot.  he is too stoned to remember that he can't OD on weed.   the discussion is always, 'should we call the cops, again?'   lucky for him he lives in Washington State.  bad news is he will have to pay $2500 bucks for the Dr. to send him home.

Smoking cigarettes have been cited as a cancer risk.  Marijuana generally has not (studies have conflicted more regarding the subject).

And while having people die in their 50s and 60s from smoking may place less of a strain on medical and pension systems long-term, I think most people would like it if grandma and grampa were around for a few decades longer.

Personally, I'd like to see the difference in cancer rates from people who smoke cigarettes, people who pipe smoke unadulterated modern tobacco varieties, people who pipe smoke unadulterated heritage tobacco varieties and people who pipe smoke marijuana.  I'd also like to know if water filtration reduces the cancer rate for any of them.

I'm glad our long national nightmare of prohibition is about to end.  It will be nice to be able to score what I want when I want it rather than waiting for some guy who has a bag of whatever.

Not that I expect things to be perfect, seems like an immediate shortage, but in a year the supply chain will stabilize and things will get to a pretty much normal situation.  When prohibition of alcohol ended, there was a huge supply of liquor in storage right across the borders and probably in warehouses in the states so that the pent-up demand was met with approprate supply.  In this case, the supply was artifically constrained, and the market was of course, grossly underestimated by the pants-wetters who set the rules.

Basic economics and supply side issues.

And yea, starting in Jr. High School, weed was always around if you wanted it, and college was pretty good but that was way back in last century, times have changed apparently.  My kid is 30 and admits that when he was in HS, that weed was MUCH easier to come by than booze.

Are you suggesting that making something more readily available somehow makes it harder for kids to get hold of it? Do you really think it's easier for a child to get weed than beer or cough syrup? And even if weed was legalized in every state, don't you realize it would still be illegal for children to purchase?

Didn't say that it would disappear.  I said that the rate would go down.

Hide your drugs, meds and booze when you have kids.  Or better, keep it under lock and key.  If people started doing that, it would be harder for kids to get access to it.

The argument is that if you legalize it, the government can have some control in how it is distributed.  Once it is illegal, the government loses control since sales will move to the underground market.  After all, a street dealer will usually sell it to anyone.  A state monitored marijuana dispensary will not.

He's saying that kids haven't had any trouble getting this illegal substance because the black market is so huge.  I can't think of any kids from my days as a kid who didn't have opportunities to get marijuana from multiple sources starting around junior high.  Heh.  High.  Heh heh.  Junior high.  When every source for a popular thing are illegal, there are a lot of sources.

When a legal outlet is provided for a previously illegal product, the illegal outlets will be reduced.

Of course, it was plenty easy to get alcohol as a kid so that kinda kills the point he was trying to make.

Honestly, it is. When I was in high school it was a lot easier buy an eighth-ounce of dirt weed than it was to buy a 12-pack of Coors. Other than obvious improvements in the quality of weed, and the increased availability of craft beer in rural America, I can't imagine much has changed over the past 10 years.

Because drug dealers don't card you. They don't check for ID to ensure you're of age. I always had a much easier time getting weed than alcohol in high school because no one cared about IDs, they just wanted to make a sale. Regulate it, and make it cheaper than the black market to cut them out. When they can't support themselves selling weed, they'll either stop or try to find something else. People of legal age are able to buy it and keep the legal shops open, and street dealers won't be able to stay in the black market game off what the middle/high school teens are buying.

There's a reason why you don't see any people supporting themselves off underage alcohol dealing. Sure an older sibling/family member/friend can buy alcohol for you or you can pay money for a fake ID, but YOU will have a harder time if you're under 21.

The argument is that if you legalize it, the government can have some control in how it is distributed.  Once it is illegal, the government loses control since sales will move to the underground market.  After all, a street dealer will usually sell it to anyone.  A state monitored marijuana dispensary will not.


Meaning that underage users will still have to rely on illegal suppliers and "borrowed" samples from their parents' stashes, and the second source will increase considerably. I've got no problem with legalizing weed for adults, but trying to argue "we're doing it for the children" is laughably dumb.

Making it cheaper than the black market is imperative or else they will just continue to deal. I imagine they will anyway.

I agree to a degree.  We'll just have to wait and see how good kids will become at pilfering from their parents versus the current black market network.

But if the Netherlands are any indication, I do think that as marijuana usage becomes more mainstream, its overall use will fall somewhat as the temptation factor disappears.

I don't think anyone has said to legalize it "for the children". The opponents say "keep it criminalized for the children", but no one actually thinks kids should be smoking. His argument was that it cuts off one supply chain to the kids (which is true). It may open it up to kids pinching nugs off their parents stash, but that's the parent's fault and they should've been watching their shiat, and their kid, better.

Dragonflew: I have heard black market prices from several friends in the U.S., and they range from pricey to OMGWTF. Is the government stuff cheaper than black market weed in Colorado? What is the going rate for a quarter oz?


At least in CO, it started at the street market rate ($35-$45/eighth), but skyrocketed by the end of the day/day 2 because of a quickly dwindling supply (up to $60). As it evens out and more supply comes in, it'll drop back down, probably below street level. Which I think people are fine with because I would much rather walk into a shop and have a nice selection than have to go to my friend's skeevy apartment complex to pick some up.

And just for comparison, it's $60-$80 in Texas for the same quality and amount that you would get in CO.

I have no issue with weed being legal. You do typically smoke weed though. Which means the normal expected lung issues. Medically, it would be probably be better as a pill or as a drink.

It will be interesting over time to see if incidences of lung disease follow the expected increase in weed smokers.

See, that is just insane. Here, it is about (aboot!) $40-$50 for a quarter oz if you buy that amount, and drops as you go up the scale. I can get an ounce of good stuff for about $120-$150, depending on where I get it. On the flip side, regulated drugs like tobacco and alcohol are crazy expensive here.

I'm going to guess it might be the kids saying they feel sick or something. A 6-year-old isn't going to know what to expect when it comes to getting high, and ingestible pot treats are pretty much always stronger than smoking so it could definitely have an interesting effect on the kid. And he put "poisoned" in quotes, so I'm thinking he was being tongue-in-cheek about it.

I think what we need to look at here is not the horrors of a kid getting a pot cookie but rather that the kid ate a random cookie scrap off of the ground. Was the kid hungry because there was not enough food in the house. What could the government possibly do about that.

Oh and seriously kids need to learn there are consequences to eating random bits off the ground.

There's a fundamental difference between weed and almost every other controlled substance: it doesn't require much to increase your stock, just some floor space and an interest in gardening. No lab, no brewery, no hard to procure ingredients, just sun, seeds and water. For such a minimal investment, there's always going to be smalltimers willing to sell or just share their excess supply. It also has the advantage of being easily concealed and handed off, which is why high schoolers are much more likely to pass around joints than comparatively bulky six packs of PBR. (Thus the preference for vodka in Sprite bottles instead, not that a dedicated student like myself would have known anything about such things.)

Sorry, but the idea that weed will be harder for kids to get once it shows up in every pharmacy is just plain silly. Next I suppose you'll be telling me kids can't get hold of regular cigarettes either.

Poisoning doesn't always mean that the substance is toxic. It also means that a substance that has chemical effects on the body was taken either accidentally or on purpose.

Here let me help you out there:

Poisoning occurs when any substance interferes with normal body functions after it is swallowed, inhaled, injected, or absorbed.

That substance doesn't have to be toxic for the term poisoning to apply when it comes to how hospitals report accidental poisonings (which is specifically what I was referring to).

You sound like someone who's never attempted to actually grow it. To have a quality product, it takes a hell of a lot more than just "floor space and an interest in gardening". Tomatoes take floorspace and an interest in gardening, and yet there's a massive fruit and vegetable market out there. Yes some people will grow, but it will be a very, very small minority.

But hey, if the GOP wants to divide their time, money and manpower to fighting legalization of cannabis AND stopping gay marriage AND repealing Obamacare AND cutting welfare benefits AND making abortion illegal...then who am I to stop them?


Perhaps not in a chemical sense, like harder drugs, but there are plenty of people who are extremely dependant on weed. Maybe it"s more of a psychological thing, but someone who smokes weed all day every day is dependant. Having said that, I completely support legalization.

It's 100% a psychological thing. Yes people can become mentally addicted to pot, the same way they can become addicted to video games, gambling, the internet, sports, etc. It does not create any sort of physical dependence or addiction, which is very different. You can stop smoking completely and be physically fine. You can't say that about a lot of other drugs out there, including legal ones.

I'm not a big fan of weed, because I'm not allowed to smoke it (been piss-tested by the Navy since I was 19), and because stoned people are kind of boring. Witty people get wittier on booze (up to a point), whereas pot smokers just grin and giggle a lot. I know you supposedly have a really good time talking about stupid BS when you're stoned, but sheesh, you're really no fun for the rest of us.

That said, soft drugs like pot should be legal, and use of hard drugs should be decriminalized. Addiction's a medical problem, not a criminal one.

Fun fact: In Alberta the drinking age is 18 but you can give your own kids alcohol in you own residence or temporary residence (RV, hotel room, etc.).  No lower limit.  That's how to get your 2 year old to sleep! ;-p  There are similar, although varying, rules for underage drinking in most provinces.  Anyhow it's completely legit to give your 14 year-old a small glass of wine with family dinner or a taste of beer in you own back yard.  OMG think of the children!  BTW there is no better way to get your kids to lay off something than to make it seem it is cool and normal for their parents to do it and encourage it.

NorCalLos: Perhaps parents are less afraid to take their "poisoned" children to the hospital.


Perhaps, the report said that the increase (or "Spike" as they termed it) happened during a period that was before the state legalized it but after the point when the feds said that they would no longer go after medical marijuana dispensaries (not individual users, which was made legal for anyone in CO with a MMJ card back in 2000) in 2009. The spike started after the medical marijuana dispensaries were no longer under the risk of being raided by the feds, not after the state said that they would allow the dispensaries to operate in the first place. The only change was that there was more available product due (at least in part) to the lessened risk of federal prosecution aimed at the otherwise legal dispensary operators.

I find it hard to believe that all of a sudden there was an increase in concerned parents because they were no longer afraid of the feds raiding dispensaries and taking them to jail (unless of course all of them also happened to own a dispensary) and not because there was an increased supply due to there being a more ready supply of "Medical" marijuana which happened after more dispensaries were being opened because they were no longer under the threat of federal raids.

In other words an increase in the supply of pot in the hands of the general public led to a foreseeable increase in reported accidental ingesting of the same by children starting in 2009 when dispensaries were no longer under federal threat, not because the parents were afraid of the law. The law had already decided to ignore small weed "crimes" back when the voters made medical marijuana legal in 2000.

No. I explained why the use of the word poisoning applies here. Propaganda implies that a distortion or misrepresentation was used. If you want to call using a word exactly as it is intended as being "Propaganda" then I would suggest that you are the one propagandizing and not I. After all I'm not the one who reported the cases as poisonings, the hospital involved did.

As to substance you were the one who brought it up, not me. All I did was answer a request for a cite to the claim that there was a "Spike" in reported marijuana poisonings being reported. There was in fact a spike in those reports.

I think that being stoned has something to do with it. Besides that, back when it was possible to get some jail time if it (or even the paraphernalia) was even seen out in the open by the police there was a really good reason to hide it quite well (that's how the word "Stash" became the common vernacular for illicit items). A side effect of that is that those places also tend to be well out of the reach of small children.

fickenchucker: Why is it fashionable to push for legalization of pot, yet cigarette smoking has been deemed the great Satan and slowly crept closer to being outlawed?
Study after study shows no net monetary loss to society from smoking, but it's held as a given in many quarters making it harder to smoke will "lower the strain on the medical system".


I think we all know exactly how dangerous smoking cigarettes is (though I don't think it should be outlawed, and it most likely won't be anytime soon).  As for fashion, I don't think the majority of people speaking up and changing laws around the country are doing it because it's the hip thing to do.  But nice try at belittling their work.

This has nothing to do with "net monetary loss" or "strain on the medical system" or whatever the hell else you're bloviating about.  Prohibition of alcohol didn't work, prohibition of everything else isn't working either.  Insane incarceration rates leading to a bloated for-profit prison system, black markets with all they entail, and people spending years behind bars for partaking in something far less dangerous than many other legal, readily available intoxicants are just a few of the reasons this modern prohibition has to end.  Should people be killed and incarcerated to stop other adults from smoking a plant that they're going to smoke anyway?
 
2014-01-06 08:49:28 PM  
Long-term alcohol use can lead to addiction; that is, people have difficulty controlling their drug use and cannot stop even though it interferes with many aspects of their lives. It is estimated that 9 percent of people who use alcohol will become dependent on it.The number goes up to about 1 in 6 in those who start using young (in their teens) and to 25-50 percent among daily users. Moreover, a study of over 300 fraternal and identical twin pairs found that the twin who had used alcohol before the age of 17 had elevated rates of other drug use and drug problems later on, compared with their twin who did not use before age 17.

Our understanding of alcohol's long-term brain effects is limited. Research findings on how chronic alcohol use affects brain structure, for example, have been inconsistent. It may be that the effects are too subtle for reliable detection by current techniques. A similar challenge arises in studies of the effects of chronic alcohol use on brain function. Although imaging studies (functional MRI; fMRI) in chronic users do show some consistent alterations, the relation of these changes to cognitive functioning is less clear. This uncertainty may stem from confounding factors such as other drug use, residual drug effects (which can occur for at least 24 hours in chronic users), or withdrawal symptoms in long-term chronic users.

EdgeRunner: Marcus Aurelius: The only reason children have unfettered access to pot is because it's illegal, you pinhead.

I... have no idea what this means. How do kids have "unfettered" access to a restricted - aka fettered - substance? Are you suggesting that making something more readily available somehow makes it harder for kids to get hold of it? Do you really think it's easier for a child to get weed than beer or cough syrup? And even if weed was legalized in every state, don't you realize it would still be illegal for children to purchase?


I hope this is sarcasm.  I can't tell.  Because pot is freely available for sale in virtually every public school of any note in America  It's completely unregulated.  If you disagree, then please point me to the list of regulations that the local pot dealer is supposed to follow.  They sell this stuff to kids.

I think you're referring to children in general. I know an astounding number of adults who regularly smoke pot, and no one discusses it at all unless it's to buy more or step outside and smoke a quick one. Back in high school? Sure, some were potheads. Haven't seen one that you describe in >25 years, though.
 
2014-01-06 08:58:44 PM  

scottydoesntknow: You sound like someone who's never attempted to actually grow it. To have a quality product, it takes a hell of a lot more than just "floor space and an interest in gardening".


You caught me, the most I've ever grown was a bean plant in grade school science class. But there must be plenty of people interested in growing their own, or else who's buying all those subscriptions to High Times for the hydroponic tips? Federal agents who only read it ironically?

Tomatoes take floorspace and an interest in gardening, and yet there's a massive fruit and vegetable market out there. Yes some people will grow, but it will be a very, very small minority. And the punishments for illegally selling will match those of alcohol and other regulated substances. And most people don't want that kind of heat.

And yet plenty of people are growing and selling nowadays in unlegalized areas anyway. See above for (your own!) tales of ready availability in rural areas with ample soil. As for farmer's markets, you called it yourself, it's a quality and availability issue. Sure I could grow my own tomatoes, but why bother if I can easily get them from a more skilled gardener and save myself the effort? On the other hand, if I can't get them and I really want them, I might try my hand at planting a vine or two. Better to have mediocre produce than no produce at all.

Of course use among underage kids is not going to disappear, but I can also say it won't see an increase in use. Those that want to try it will try it (same as now), and those that don't, won't. People can always find a way. Like I said, it was easier to get weed than alcohol, but I was still able to get alcohol.

And you'd be wrong. Weed is a "bad" thing right now. Once it's legalized and becomes a common leisure product like booze and cigs, of course interest will increase in trying it. People don't do it because it's forbidden, they do it because it makes them feel good, and the only reason it isn't more widely popular is because of the penalties currently attached to usage. It's like you're arguing that underage drinking was worse before prohibition. Just let it go, man. It's a nonsensical position to take.

If a school kid gets weed from a dealer, he/she has purchased an illegal substance. This kid cannot openly enjoy their purchase without fearing potential repercussions, so there are certain "restrictions" on its use that do not apply to apple juice, potato chips, or other non-fettered products.

EdgeRunner: scottydoesntknow: Because drug dealers don't card you. They don't check for ID to ensure you're of age. I always had a much easier time getting weed than alcohol in high school because no one cared about IDs, they just wanted to make a sale. Regulate it, and make it cheaper than the black market to cut them out. When they can't support themselves selling weed, they'll either stop or try to find something else. People of legal age are able to buy it and keep the legal shops open, and street dealers won't be able to stay in the black market game off what the middle/high school teens are buying.

There's a reason why you don't see any people supporting themselves off underage alcohol dealing. Sure an older sibling/family member/friend can buy alcohol for you or you can pay money for a fake ID, but YOU will have a harder time if you're under 21.

There's a fundamental difference between weed and almost every other controlled substance: it doesn't require much to increase your stock, just some floor space and an interest in gardening. No lab, no brewery, no hard to procure ingredients, just sun, seeds and water. For such a minimal investment, there's always going to be smalltimers willing to sell or just share their excess supply. It also has the advantage of being easily concealed and handed off, which is why high schoolers are much more likely to pass around joints than comparatively bulky six packs of PBR. (Thus the preference for vodka in Sprite bottles instead, not that a dedicated student like myself would have known anything about such things.)

Sorry, but the idea that weed will be harder for kids to get once it shows up in every pharmacy is just plain silly. Next I suppose you'll be telling me kids can't get hold of regular cigarettes either.

Especially these days, with all that fake pot and bath salts and other insanely dangerous experimental chemicals designed to stay one step ahead of the DEA.  Not to mention inhalants, possibly the WORST thing one could do to their bodies.  I smoked pot extensively when I was about 16 until I was maybe mid-20s after I graduated from college with a B.S.  I don't even remember when I first quit, that's how addictive it isn't, but I quit for a good 7 years.  No conscious effort, I didn't wake up and say "No more pot", I just stopped buying it and stopped hanging around with people who smoked it.  Quitting tobacco was FAR harder.  Now in my early 30s, I'll toke a bit now and then responsibly.

Truth be told, the worst negative consequences from pot come from its prohibition.  The risk of dealing with the criminal element, or the possibility that a pig will violently arrest you and ruin your life because you were in possession of a relatively harmless plant that grows in the wild in many parts of the world.

Weed is not a bad thing, and even in a worst case scenario that every kid tries it like they try alcohol, the harm is extremely limited. You see very few kids turning into alcoholics and if weed was legal you wouldn't suddenly see kids that obey all the rules become potheads. The same kids that abuse alcohol and weed now would still abuse it if it was legal, despite what the drug war has proclaimed, there is not an event horizon looming with pot use. You won't try it once and be sucked into a black hole of drug use and vagrancy.

And you're right, more kids would probably try a couple times if it was legal, who cares? They almost all try it in college anyways, and they don't end up with drug problems. It takes a certain personality type to become addicted, and those people find ways to destroy themselves no matter how you threaten them with punishment.

And really, what's the alternative? Throwing people in jail and leading the planet in incarceration rates? That's not exactly working out so well. The best answer is to legalize it and be honest with kids. Let them know the real effects, and that they should wait until being of legal age.

Especially these days, with all that fake pot and bath salts and other insanely dangerous experimental chemicals designed to stay one step ahead of the DEA.  Not to mention inhalants, possibly the WORST thing one could do to their bodies.  I smoked pot extensively when I was about 16 until I was maybe mid-20s after I graduated from college with a B.S.  I don't even remember when I first quit, that's how addictive it isn't, but I quit for a good 7 years.  No conscious effort, I didn't wake up and say "No more pot", I just stopped buying it and stopped hanging around with people who smoked it.  Quitting tobacco was FAR harder.  Now in my early 30s, I'll toke a bit now and then responsibly.


Truth be told, the worst negative consequences from pot come from its prohibition.  The risk of dealing with the criminal element, or the possibility that a pig will violently arrest you and ruin your life because you were in possession of a relatively harmless plant that grows in the wild in many parts of the world.

This so farking much.

Let alone the burden on the tax payers to prosecute marijuana offenders. CO and WA not only have released themselves of the burden, but have turned it into a revenue stream.

Everything is blurred on what's right and what's wrong... Sin becomes fine, Start with smoking marijuana and just morph out from there. Bestiality, sleeping around with this woman and that woman and that woman and those men.

The acts of the sinful nature are obvious. Pot smoking, is number one on the list. How many ways can we sin sexually? My goodness. You open up that can of worms and people will be mad at you over it.

Jesus will take sins away, if you're a pot smoker he'll take it away, if you're an adulterer, if you're a liar, what's the difference? If you break one sin you may as well break them all.

However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.

If we lose our morality, we will lose our country. It will happen.

EdgeRunner: Marcus Aurelius: I hope this is sarcasm.  I can't tell.  Because pot is freely available for sale in virtually every public school of any note in America  It's completely unregulated.  If you disagree, then please point me to the list of regulations that the local pot dealer is supposed to follow.  They sell this stuff to kids.

Alcohol, on the other hand, is very difficult for children to obtain.

But you already knew these things. yes?

Please say yes.

If a school kid gets weed from a dealer, he/she has purchased an illegal substance. This kid cannot openly enjoy their purchase without fearing potential repercussions, so there are certain "restrictions" on its use that do not apply to apple juice, potato chips, or other non-fettered products.

But you already understood this, yes?

EdgeRunner: scottydoesntknow: You sound like someone who's never attempted to actually grow it. To have a quality product, it takes a hell of a lot more than just "floor space and an interest in gardening".

You caught me, the most I've ever grown was a bean plant in grade school science class. But there must be plenty of people interested in growing their own, or else who's buying all those subscriptions to High Times for the hydroponic tips? Federal agents who only read it ironically?

Tomatoes take floorspace and an interest in gardening, and yet there's a massive fruit and vegetable market out there. Yes some people will grow, but it will be a very, very small minority. And the punishments for illegally selling will match those of alcohol and other regulated substances. And most people don't want that kind of heat.

And yet plenty of people are growing and selling nowadays in unlegalized areas anyway. See above for (your own!) tales of ready availability in rural areas with ample soil. As for farmer's markets, you called it yourself, it's a quality and availability issue. Sure I could grow my own tomatoes, but why bother if I can easily get them from a more skilled gardener and save myself the effort? On the other hand, if I can't get them and I really want them, I might try my hand at planting a vine or two. Better to have mediocre produce than no produce at all.

Of course use among underage kids is not going to disappear, but I can also say it won't see an increase in use. Those that want to try it will try it (same as now), and those that don't, won't. People can always find a way. Like I said, it was easier to get weed than alcohol, but I was still able to get alcohol.

And you'd be wrong. Weed is a "bad" thing right now. Once it's legalized and becomes a common leisure product like booze and cigs, of course interest will increase in trying it. People don't do it because it's forbidden, they do it because it makes them feel good, and the only reason it isn't more widel ...


Personal pot grow-ops are a big thing because its illegality keeps it so expensive that the cost of care and electricity and time is worth it. They can sell it or save a ton of money vs. buying it. If tomatoes were illegal and the street price climbed to $50/tomato, more people would have indoor tomato gardens. When it costs $5 to buy a joint from the local dispensary, fewer people are going to go through the hassle of home-growing.

Presumably. I dunno.

Dinjiin: fickenchucker: Why is it fashionable to push for legalization of pot, yet cigarette smoking has been deemed the great Satan and slowly crept closer to being outlawed?  Study after study shows no net monetary loss to society from smoking, but it's held as a given in many quarters making it harder to smoke will "lower the strain on the medical system".

Smoking cigarettes have been cited as a cancer risk.  Marijuana generally has not (studies have conflicted more regarding the subject).

And while having people die in their 50s and 60s from smoking may place less of a strain on medical and pension systems long-term, I think most people would like it if grandma and grampa were around for a few decades longer.

Personally, I'd like to see the difference in cancer rates from people who smoke cigarettes, people who pipe smoke unadulterated modern tobacco varieties, people who pipe smoke unadulterated heritage tobacco varieties and people who pipe smoke marijuana.  I'd also like to know if water filtration reduces the cancer rate for any of them.


I'm hesitant to chime in because I'll get called for citations and I'm really too drunk and cold and tired. But here goes... Lung cancer doesn't make the top ten list for mortality. The Japanese have something like twice the consumption of cigarettes per capita compared to America and a lower rate of mortality from them. They don't sit on their butt. Smoking is associated with obesity and sedentary lifestyle. If you're active you are a lot better off. I like my blue skies here. Living in China or L.A. as a non-smoker is worse than me having a smoke every few miles on my bike under clear sky.

I am not a fan of pot. I don't really like the effect. I don't really like the smell even. It's not a drug that I'm all that into, not even the occasional toke at a party, and I'm a chef, which means I pretty much work with folks who smoke every dang day. Some of the best chefs I've worked with toked. Brilliantly talented folks.

My dislike for the stuff, however, doesn't impede my wanting to see us end a campaign started by a guy who wanted to defend his paper empire from the corticator and cheap competition from hemp for paper. I want to see us end this ridiculous war on drugs that only lines the pockets of those who profit from seizures, who profit from a prison industry, and who keep the country from utilizing a crop that can produce not just a drug, but also paper, cloth, even animal feed. It's uses far outweigh the recreational properties, and that means more money for folks who will utilize it. It also means less money spent in our courts, in our jails, in our prisons, and with the savings, and revenue generated, we could actually see a very real economic ripple that can kick start a lot of very legal, very taxable, and very lucrative enterprises.

Legal weed means not just folks sitting at home toking it up, and listening to Dark Side of the Moon for hours on end, but jobs. It means that our legal system may catch a break, and our police can be tasked to far better things.

The war on pot goes back a long ways. It was once considered so vile and despicable that it would cause folks to go kill crazy. A few years later it was a scourge because it would make American youth too pacific to fight our wars--and oddly enough, that statement was made by the same guy who testified in the first place to criminalize the stuff because it was so crazy making. It is a host of excuses to essentially KEEP competition out of the marketplace.

That's all.

Not because it's dangerous. Not because it's terrible. But because it would cost cotton, timber, and even corn and other feed producers money in competition. The Navy has an exception to hemp use, because the stuff is that damn useful. The crop is useful in ways far beyond just smoking the stuff, and its economic value is far more than just rolled up or vaporized. And THAT is the real crime. Years of R&D gone, years of economic gains, years of wasted lives in the pursuit of the protection of industries that fear competition.

I'm not a fan of the stuff, but go ahead and smoke. I don't care. I do care that we've wasted a lot of tax dollars, lives, and man hours on protecting industries that feared competition from a plant, and a machine that would make its harvest profitable on a large scale. That it spawned a host of corrupt legislation, that it spawned an unconscionable waste of time and human life is even more so. Because people were afraid that their market shares would suffer competition. That's all. All the rest? Those were excuses to justify this mess. And that is what should keep folks up at night.

Somebody is still awake.  Show me an instance where a coroner cited the cause of death to be "too much weed".


Scantrons only go to "E" so salt wasn't mentioned.

I'm begining to be of the opinion that a lot of dude's mellows were meant to be harshed.

"When Fox News analyst Juan Williams noted that marijuana is legal in Colorado and drew an analogy to wine reviews, O'Reilly was puzzled. 'That's not an intoxication deal, is it?', he asked. 'You can drink wine without getting inebriated.'"

derp.

MSFT: ZeroCorpse: People who occasionally use marijuana? Usually fine. They can talk about other stuff, function without it, and don't make it the point of their lives.

Potheads? Yeah, they're pinheads. They're only interesting to other potheads. They can't stop talking about weed. They have stupid ideas that they think are original and/or clever when they're neither. They obsess about marijuana and getting high. They're pinheads. In fact, I think they're worse than alcoholics... At least alcoholics talk about something other than booze.

I think you're referring to children in general. I know an astounding number of adults who regularly smoke pot, and no one discusses it at all unless it's to buy more or step outside and smoke a quick one. Back in high school? Sure, some were potheads. Haven't seen one that you describe in >25 years, though.



To be honest, I haven't either... but then I haven't hung around potheads since high school. However, I sure see a lot of them online, and they sure like to talk about weed. About legalizing weed. About growing weed. About legalizing hemp so they can have a shirt made of hemp and get some legal weed. About moving to Colorado to smoke weed. About taking a trip to Amsterdam to smoke weed. About eating brownies with weed in them. About 420-this and Ann Arbor's Hash Bash that. About "smoke weed every day" and about drawing pot leaves on everything.

So no... I haven't actually been around any of these people since high school, but I know they're out there. And they're pinheads.

I had that same thought. Sadly I couldn't find a screenshot of that scene but I did source this one instead and it seems a shame for it to go to waste.

thisisarepeat: nekom: thisisarepeat: The following is a list of things a human can die from consuming in excessive quantities.  Choose the one that does not belong.

A)  Doughnuts

B)  Tap water

C)   Marijuana

D)  Shellfish

E)  Peanuts

To be technically fair, if you ate nothing but marijuana from here on out, you'd probably die.  Not from the THC but from malnutrition or something.

If you consume only oxygen, you are just as farked.


Also, if the weed has gone to seed then you could probably eat nothing but whole cannabis plants and live a long and very, very regular life.  Cannabis seeds are very nutritious.

Astorix: Barry Lyndon's Annuity Cheque: I remember my time as a youth, and if there was anything that was impossible for me to get my hands on, it was a bag of weed.

It's pretty much unheard of for a child to even know who to ask for such a thing.

You must not have grown up in Indiana then because pot was easier to obtain than alcohol.



i'm guessing Indiana had extremely strict laws on owning an obvious-sarcasm-detector though.

sammyk: Sometimes he can be a stand up guy


Um...what?  To say I'm extremely dubious of the validity of this is somewhat of an understatement.

Remember folks, this is the guy who called Jamie Lynn Spears' parents "pinheads" when she got pregnant, but when Bristol Palin got knocked up he said "it's a private family matter".

/not that I disagree with the first one, it's the juxtaposition of the two when compared.

gilgigamesh: However, the veritable cornucopia of pharmaceuticals Bill's geriatric audience is perpetually ripped to the tits on is perfectly ok.

Children can't possibly be influenced by or obtain any of those perfectly legal heroin and morphine derived pills cluttering up grandpa's medicine cabinet.

Right Bill?


the greatest generation earned those rights, and died to take away your sins, so shut your mouth when you are talking

lordjupiter: fusillade762: So we should continue to lock people up because children might get ahold of some and idiots might drive on it? Well that's certainly the Small Government solution.


vernonFL: there has been a spike in ER visits of children who ate their parents pot candy or cookies.

Parents, please be careful.

Citation needed.

You're describing teenage potheads.  Or, really, insert your favorite descriptive noun after teenager and the results would be very similar.  Really breaking ground with your "many teenagers are pinheads" assertion, way to go.

fusillade762: Dragonflew: rka: Dragonflew: See, that is just insane.

And the people said "Don't care, legal weed".

I was talking about the street rate of up to $45 an eighth, which is more than twice the street rate here.

Where the hell are you? It's been $40 and eighth here for as long as I can remember.
