JSTACAT: Forked Tongues:The Yakima tribe decided to ban pot on their lands including adjacent hunting areas recently.Here's an insight as to why:The issue is all Forked up.Issue no 1 is the Forked communication and Legal policy;Wa state says is ok, lets make money,Wa DC says it aint ok, its a sch. 1 narcotic; and they wont let pot into the banking sys, it is still a class 1 drug felony by the books;Listen Up!use & possession bars a person from owning or carrying guns and ammo, possibly other weapons; & etc. This is Federal Law!If anyone knows the dangers of Fork Tongue syndrome it would be The Tribal Elders, amirite?Issue #2 is that if it is only a medicine [classification], then constant casual use degenerates it as a medicine. That is another Fork.It is also a trap. by allowing pot in Wa & Col. & other with states medical pot, a list is being added to by the hour... all the invisible users are now [or will be soon] in the database. wink-winkLegal means that it has the same status as a vegetable that you can pick roadside, grow in your garden or casually buy in the grocery store, like lettuce or cigarettes..Another issue is that people aren't satisfied with legal pot, but now they want to concentrate it into a powerful narcotic, using poisons & dangerous chemicals. Yet another ForkThis is why we can't have nice things!Folks, listen to your Elders! Their wisdom can save you a lot of money and grief!The additional lands [where they want to enforce the ban] are to be used by the Tribe by treaty, therefore they have a right to govern any activity which would interfere with that useage right.A young hothead or old sleeper wielding a gun, bow, vehicle while under the influence of pot or some powerful pot based concoction is extremely hazardous to wildlife and humans, and vastly increases fire danger.Such as; halfway back on the 15 mile hike down the mountainside, just before sundown.., dude! did we put out the fire completely? i smell smoke!...
sendtodave: You're high right now, aren't you?
JSTACAT: Strangely, DEA chief Michele Leonhart has been making bizarre statements about weed this week.First she said that voters in Colorado and Washington were essentially coerced into voting to legalize recreational pot. She also said that Mexican drug cartels were infiltrating those states to prepare to sell marijuana at prices cheaper than one could find at a legal retailer.
efgeise: BravadoGT: Obama's wrong about this. The law allows the AG to reclassify it to another category without Congressional approval.So why is he dragging Congress into it? He has more legal authority to re-schedule pot than, say, extending the deadline for Obamacare or arbitrarily granting exemptions to it.He is probably hoping to use House GOP obstructionist objectives to swing the Libertarian vote towards Dems in the midterms. It's a smart move, from a political strategy standpoint.
Boojum2k: We've had three Presidents in a row who admitted to using drugs, and it didn't ruin their lives. Maybe the same consideration can be shown to the rest of us, right?
Boojum2k: neongoats: sports cars painted as police cars to cruise inHeh. Years back, I had a state Trooper in a 5.0 Mustang challenge me and my Grand National to a race. He decided they needed faster pursuit cars./Friend of the family, so no he didn't jack me up afterwards, he was a graceful loser
Isitoveryet: If this happens, all those marijuana heads will start snorting heroin. Gateway drug & all that.
