MyRandomName: jayhawk88: NURBS: In order to have a functioning society, the government is going to have to spend money. That money, for the most part, comes from taxes. So again, taxes don't bother me -- it's all just part of living in modern society with all the modern amenities.


It used to be a lot easier and cheaper to create that infrastructure before government started regulating itself so much. Do you honestly think we could make the Hoover dam at this point?

We just landed a laboratory on Mars. I'm going with, yes, yes we could pull off building a dam if such a dam was what we wanted.

Fark_Guy_Rob: I've always felt like the medical marijuana thing was absolute crap....and I say this as someone who lived in Colorado and had one.

There is nothing 'medical' about it. Yes, if you try really hard you can find some legit people who use the drug as intended (for medical purposes). 99% of the people I ran into at the dispensary were just like me - young, reasonably fit, reasonably healthy, people who wanted to smoke weed and were happy enough to pay extra for it.

Personally, I think recreational drugs should be legal. Weed should be one. But if you want to call it 'medical marijuana' it should be tightly enforced. The place I went to had a TWO PAGE ad in the newspaper showing it's deals/prices and advertising that they would have doctors on staff at hours X,Y and Z for prescriptions. No medical records unnecessary, cash only.

I went and said, 'Ummm, well, my back hurts.' and that was all I needed. In total I paid $300 and left with some baked goodies.

Same goes for any pain medication, anxiety medication, hunger stimulant, or sleeping pill, along with no doubt a host of things I've left out.

All I need to do is talk to my pcp about any of those things. He'll have a sample for me to try for a while and a prescription to follow if I like it.

Why single out pot?

this is why i've never understood the D-tards who insist that marijuana should be "taxed and regulated". why should it be taxed? why should it be regulated? the default answer is that it should not be, until you can show a good reason tor such coercion...

Hey, just elect that guy, Obama, and I'm sure he'll legalize it all, or at the very least, not give medicinal growers any grief about it!
