Ah, the days on Fox News when Glenn Beck made Bill O'Reilly seem like the voice of sanity.

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.

propasaurus: Weaver95: 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?

Oh yeah, what about the 37 people who died from pot overdoses in Colorado?


That's  15 fewer killings than Bill O'Reilly's army of ghostwriters have penned  in the last 6 months.

Is O'Reilly still a thing? He wrote a book on Jesus for Christ's sake. When I think about knowing Jesus, I think Bill O'Reilly. Well co-authored.

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

Parents, please be careful.

Wrong.


A Google search of "ER visits of children who ate their parents marijuana" gave me several hits from major media outlets. Here's the top hit from CBS, there are several others including some from Washington State reporting the same thing.

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.

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

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".

Of course, this dipshiat is for deregulating oil companies and such, because, you know, laws are not good for commerce in america, particuarly when it costs money to not destroy the planet in the process.

It isn't addictive, but people sure can become dependent on it.

Just wait till they get the idea to start locking up people who have a bottle of Oxycontin or Vicodin in their medicine cabinet that is beyond its use-by date.


Mugato: That's what I don't get, who listens to this person?


People who are angry.  People who see the world going by and feel victimized by the changes.  So mostly old white men.


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.

I... have no idea what this means. How do kids have "unfettered" access to a restricted - aka fettered - substance?

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.

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.

Then perhaps you can find a better explanation for the increase in accidental marijuana poisonings involving little kids getting into their parents marijuana laced foodstuffs that doesn't involve an increase in the availability of same.
