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-wink

Legal 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 Fork

This 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!

Oh yes the Attorney General providing promotion of the drug addiction and overdosing is always the greatest of the ideas.

If a 10% voter block wanted bestiality legalized, the Democrats would make it an election issue just to get the votes....then kick it to whatever portion of the government at the time is run by Republicans for a they can run back to that 10% and say "we tried but those mean old wepubwicans just wont give you equal pig-farkers"

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.

It's not that hard to understand. Put yourself in her shoes. Here you are, doing your job. It's a hard and thankless job... And then, without warning, CO and WA literally flip you the bird... And now there's talk that all the "good" you've done is actually "evil". How could that possibly be?

The loss of public support against marijuana has got to be driving the anti-drug people insane. If only there was some way they could take the edge off...

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.

ahh...the "politics of old" he was going to lead us away from.....

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?

We don't know that. If Bush Jr had laid off the junk he may have gone into applied sciences instead of politics and perfected cold fusion.

Boojum2k: neongoats: sports cars painted as police cars to cruise in

Heh. 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

I think they should be stuck in smart cars, frankly. Pursuit is dangerous and unnecessary in 98% of situations. Stick em in those little things you see eastern European bobbys in.
