99% of the harm caused by pot is from the laws against it.

Maybe driving high will be an issue, but then there are plenty of terrible drivers stone cold sober.

I'm sure a lot of people who would drive high do it already anyway.

A friend's cousin had 5 marijuanas one night and died. Brandon is trying to kill our kids. He's going to have Soros fund a Halloween campaign to give it away and addict all of the kids and then kill them.

Cannabis is on track for complete decriminalization at the federal level, and the conservatives can't even get a fundraising bounce out of it.
Wow. That's just sad!

It was legalized here in New Mexico this year.  The arguments against legalization were pure hysterical hyperbole.

What was really fun was that I was a resident of Washington state when it was legalized; none of the doom scenarios ever came to pass.

Happened to catch a terrible interview on local news last night from a woman who was worried that expunging MJ records would increase the amount of people driving high... her proof was her daughter, who was caught driving high... and drunk.

Dear Laura Ingraham,

There are simultaneously TWO stories of "forgiveness" that are front and center in the news at this very moment.

Its obviously an outrage to you, to FORGIVE people who privately carried a small amount a medicinal plant for their own personal use.

What about Herschel Walker is right in saying he has been FORGIVEN for murdering a baby. If you're not speaking out loudly against Walker's murdering a baby, you are a disgraceful hypocrite. Yes, everyone can see this clear as day.

That is, unless what you consider to be killing a baby is a far lighter crime than smoking a joint.

I guess the only plan Republicans have for dealing with cannabis becoming legal is to double down on the same tired old lies that everyone was already ignoring. So screaming the lies louder isn't gonna work.
Biden fixed it so that not even individual states can keep cannabis hideously illegal anymore. So the authoritarians can't even abuse the hippies back home.

Because people who buy drugs are doing it so they can give it away.

I am a master of intoxicants, have been my whole life, pot is not addictive.  Sure it might be habit forming but it is in no way physically addictive.  Nor does pot cause the issues of some of the ADDICTIVE drugs lower on the schedule - a lot of the paranoia that people get whilst on pot, is due to the fact it is illegal and most people are not big on breaking the law and fear the consequences (so mind set is not good.)

Time and place, set and setting. Those are the rules that should be followed regardless of what type of mind altering substance you are taking. This goes for everything, ie. do not drink a cup of coffee before going to bed.

Wait what?

That's not a thing, Weav. If federal prohibition ended tomorrow, it would still be illegal in a majority of states. They may eventually follow suite, but that's not required or guaranteed by any means.

Once cannabis is no longer schedule I at the federal level, then it is no longer schedule I anywhere in this country and state/local laws will have to follow the federal rules on drug enforcement.

Halloween, like April Fool's Day, is a holiday where some people should just sit down 'cause they don't know how to have fun without hurting people.

That being said, still objectively the best holiday.

A generation ago, yes, this would've worked.

Nowadays, when MAGA governors around, they'll just ignore the Federal supremacy clause and enact state laws banning the use and sale of weed.

Cannabis is not liquor and none of those laws apply in this scenario.
That might change in the future....but as of right now, cannabis is mostly unregulated at the federal level.
And legal (within limits).

"Schlapp argued Biden is attempting to "rally his troops" with fewer than five weeks until the midterms."

That's right. That's the power of the Executive Office. Welcome to politics.

"He also said the decision to issue the pardons is more about "winning races" than helping people."

Some politicians are capable of doing two things at once. Doesn't mean it doesn't actually "help people"

Competence and ability seems to flumox Mr Schlapp.

Except that cannabis money can now cross state lines without being seen as illegal drug money.

Again - cannabis cash is now *legal*. That means the weed hippies can just buy whatever laws they need, just like the conservatives do.
And they have the cash for that sort of thing.

I like a good joint once in awhile.  It's soothing.  No one should go to jail for smoking a joint either.  Cops, especially the younger ones, have probably smoked plenty of it themselves.

The federal pot crimes that are being forgiven aren't for smoking joints.  They're for being caught with 50 lbs in your trunk, delivering it halfway across the country or whatever.

What's funny about this blanket pardon is that the law hasn't changed.  You can get pardoned today and get busted for the exact thing tomorrow.


Unless they're getting rid of the law too (and they should), then this is just election season pandering... and pretty obvious too.

NJ legalized it 2 years ago but wouldn't allow anyone to sell it legally until this past May.  And even then, it was only allowed by 2 dispensary companies in the state, a total of like 12 locations for 9M people.

Recently went to Portland, Maine for a wedding and we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of dispensaries--there were more dispensaries than Starbucks!

Dry counties make it illegal to sell alcohol, not to drink it. Local ordinances can regulate the sale of a product. But it can't regulate the use of the product (insofar as pertaining to alcohol and weed).
