Bout damn time. Maine needs a more easily renewed cash crop.

Come to think pf it, the paper mills might want to look at giving hemp paper a try again. The have lots of areas already clear cut that could get turned into fields, that would for damn sure require less equipment and insurance costs than logging.

Something tells me Susan Collins is really going to appreciate this come November.

If only someone could explain to her what suppositories means...

hubiestubert: Bout damn time. Maine needs a more easily renewed cash crop.



And until just within the past 20 years, tobacco was always the go-to cash crop. But people got wise to the shenanigans and out-right lies about big tobacco and need another export to help boost the lost tax revenue.

Which is why I am an opponent of any federal ban on pot, as their is currently an across-the-board ban on pot. It needs to be a State Issue. Those who want it, great. Those who don't, will need to find another way to fill their drying coffers

Looks like you're allowed to have three mature plants. If you have the means, grow your own Maine Farkers. You will not regret it.

ROCK ON!

Adults 21 years of age or older with a valid ID will be able to purchase up to 2.5 ounces of a combination of marijuana and marijuana concentrate that includes no more than five grams of marijuana concentrate.

I.e a standard package will consist of 5 grams of extract and 65 grams of flowers.
 
2020-10-09 12:04:04 AM  
What if you want to buy on any other day, not just on a Friday?

This might cut into revenue for that pot shop just south of the NH-MA state line on Route 1.
And for the NH and ME state troopers catching people heading home from said shop.
Actually, I guess the NH troopers will just catch people coming into the state from either side now.

YMMV, but if any strain is going to trigger my anxiety it's a sativa.

You would think so, but I am constantly surprised at the people I'm waiting behind in line who buy a joint or a gram.

Favorite strains:

Tangie - sativa, all of the Orange. Also zoomies. Clean the house for an hour in just ten minutes.
Black Jack - hybrid - a lime punches you in the brain
Blue Knight - Indica - blueberry & vanilla & couchlock.

Same here. Back when I was still smoking, I noticed a trend where whenever I smoked sativa I'd suddenly start pacing around my room thinking about every social situation I ever mishandled, and how stupid it made me look. Not usually a fun time.

The reason I'd mentioned indica was because when I'm picturing a strain that would make someone sit at home and space out on something really important (like the election), it's definitely an indica.

? Donzo made a big deal of donating "half" his annual prez salary to his surgeon general - and Smart Approaches to Marijuana bunch of prohiitionists, summer before last.  No doubt one can track down the Surgeon General's late '70's SOS anti-pot propaganda ("yada - yada - brain on drugs - yada - yada").

Mitch's legalized Hemp is going a long way to f*cking the DEA's forty year system of "marijuana" eradication - new field tests leave the DEA unable to claim to have torched 100 million dollar stand of "marijuana"!!!  when it's nothing more than wild rope stock/bird seed.

Deschedule "Dronabinol" Cannabis = >.3% D9THC), and let the ATF take over what enforcement would need be required

Uh, not quite sir.

Per Merriam-Webster:

nar·cot·ic | \ när-ˈkä-tik  \
Definition of narcotic (Entry 1 of 2)
1a: a drug (such as opium or morphine) that in moderate doses dulls the senses, relieves pain, and induces profound sleep but in excessive doses causes stupor, coma, or convulsions
1b:a drug (such as marijuana or LSD) subject to restriction similar to that of addictive narcotics whether physiologically (see PHYSIOLOGICAL) addictive and narcotic or not

Horrible as addiction to it and other opioids can be, I think you'd be hard pressed to make a case that morphine has 'no medicinal benefit,' considering it is one of the most commonly used analgesics in the world. And as defined in the dictionary, morphine is classified as a narcotic, as is marijuana.

Much as I am not fond of the poster you are replying to (or the 'point' he is trying to make here), his use of that term is not really inappropriate in that context.

And even though it is being legalized in many parts of the country, it is still subject to narcotic-like restrictions in most places. So even in the context of your argument, the term 'narcotic' still fits.

mateomaui: It says "addictive narcotic"... cannabis is considered a non-addictive narcotic.


Considered as such, but I don't entirely agree with those who claim it's non-addictive. While the addiction may be more psychological than physical, and might be laughable when compared to something like cocaine or opiates, there can be an element of addictive behavior to its use.

I smoked marijuana on a daily basis for over 10 years. When I decided to quit it took me at least 4 tries before I fully succeeded, and I wouldn't say it was easy. Sure, I didn't end up curled up in bed shaking all over with cold sweats or anything, but I did have severe insomnia and other physical effects at first, and the psychological element was very real and powerful.

Let me be clear, lest my arguments be confused with those of he-who-must-not-be-named: I am very much in favor of legalization of retail marijuana as well as rescheduling/decriminalizing it. But I don't think it really serves anyone to sugar coat marijuana or mischaracterize what it really is.

While it very likely has a number of useful medical applications, it is not a wonder-drug or a cure-all. It is also irrational to pretend that there are no downsides to its use whatsoever. Just because the drawbacks to marijuana use aren't as obvious as they would be with something like heroin doesn't mean they don't exist or are irrelevant. It is still a drug, a mild one perhaps but a drug nonetheless, and even when advocating for its use/legalization I think it's still important to recognize that.

If weed is *not* a narcotic as you imply, it must be the only non-narcotic that causes narcosis, or drowsiness.

Come on now.  Both of us know damn good and well that you can't get weed legalized unless you cover up all of its drawbacks and exaggerate its alleged medical uses.

Also...  NJ put that on that ballot finally.  The last time they did polls about this sort of thing, there was an overwhelming majority of "Yes, legalize it."

Needless to say, I'm hoping that this time this is a binding resolution and they just pass the law already.  It's been years in the making, and only got stalled last time because our government deadlocked on what they thought the people would think.  That's why it went to "public question".

Yes, of course.  All of the substances you named--coffee, tea, sugar, nicotine, pineapple sherbet--are just like weed in that you're supposed to consume them until you can't think straight.  Why just last night I wolfed down three gallons of Moose Tracks in a sitting, and let me tell you, I was so wasted after that I couldn't even get up to pee.

tirob: Harlee: LurkerSupreme: It is still a drug, a mild one perhaps but a drug nonetheless, and even when advocating for its use/legalization I think it's still important to recognize that.

So is coffee. And tea. And nicotine. They are all drugs. And all of them have withdrawal symptoms.

Science says that all of them have psychoactive effects. Some of the even induce stupid sarcasm.

dbirchall: This might cut into revenue for that pot shop just south of the NH-MA state line on Route 1.
And for the NH and ME state troopers catching people heading home from said shop.
Actually, I guess the NH troopers will just catch people coming into the state from either side now.


Mass and Maine allow possession of 5g of extract, so it's literally not worth the effort for New Hampshire troopers to go after residents heading back into the state when 5 grams (or 21 grams of flower) brings in no more revenue than writing a speeding ticket (new law since Sununu signed the bill back in 2017).

And at least NHSP isn't staking out the parking lots.

Rogue Surf: So glad the modern Rethugs haven't done like Nixon and Reagan and associated cannabis with the Antifa or minorities and Rape like was so often done in the past!
/Because Taxes!


Yeah, they want some of that sweet, sweet green... Money.

Yes, they all have psychoactive effects.  But I'm talking about conventions of use, not psychoactive effects.  Even booze has a convention of use where you're supposed to stop before you get wasted.  Weed, not so much.

Which makes weed appear to me more like crack or heroin or meth in this single respect rather than like coffee or sugar or even gin.

Trinidad Colorado.  This was a dead and dying town.  Marijuana economy saved this little town, and brought some life back into her.  A select group of folks are now making millions.  Get your ass to Maine and start growing.
