Colorado and Washington legalize marijuana

In a groundbreaking move, Colorado and Washington voters have passed referendums legalizing marijuana for recreational use. The drug is still banned under federal law.

Colorado's Proposition 64 to the state's constitution makes it legal for anyone over the age of 21 to possess marijuana and for businesses to sell it.

Man this is bad for the dealers. All we need now is a few good lawsuits when the car wrecks start happening. I can see it now employees coming to work and cant stop taking breaks cuz they got munchies. And the water bottle in the offices constantly being dry.

I quit smoking that stuff 20yrs ago when the x-wife got pregnant. Sort of ironic it was her idea we should "grow up" and be good parents. Now I just past 1yr divorced because she started doing drugs.

Fascism is a religion of the state. It assumes the organic unity of the body politic and longs for a national leader attuned to the will of the people. It is totalitarian in that it views everything as political and holds that any action by the state is justified to achieve the common good. It takes responsibility for all aspects of life, including our health and well-being, and seeks to impose uniformity of thought and action, whether by force or through regulation and social pressure. Everything, including economy and religion, must be aligned with its objectives.

Because the drug war produces too much money. The drug war has become it's own industry. 40 years and a trillion dollars, no difference at all. But yet there are still morons who support the stupidity as readily as the "christian's" who support the killing and maiming of women and children in foreign country's.

On the bright side, there is a vibrant black market for those needing work.

Well some of you know and some don't. I live in Seattle and have been in Medical Marijuana industry for four years now. I own a store front dispensary. We are adapting to changes everyday and this one will be the same. Right now we are working on getting a State controlled store or go into production. We don't know what direction yet. Regardless...I am an industry leader. The future looks bright.

I personally have nothing against its use. I burned through pounds of it in my day. Eventually, like many other things in my life, I reached a point where I needed to stop. I've been fortunate to be able to quit things when I had to, and understand the difficulties of addiction.

For people who can control their usage of alcohol, recreational drugs, and specifically pot in this case, I am fully behind them. Unfortunately, that can be impossible for many to do.

So I am concerned about the legalization of pot becoming another excuse for people to blame for their addictions, and society subsequently having to bear the costs to help them.

We have always had 2 Growers in my Family (Not say'n where)

They have been growing weed they're whole lives and my Grandfather smoked weed too.

Personnally I hate the shit and can't seem to get high off it,

I'd just as soon drink a Beer,

Kind of hypocritical to say you did it; you were responsible, you quit, but others.

I tell you what I am concerned about.

Marianna was made illegal by individuals who felt they knew better than the common man what he (the common man) could handle.

Under the current federal laws the punishment for getting caught using Marianna is worse than the use of the drug itself. In this case, in my opinion, the government has protected you from being stoned, eating too much pizza and wasting your money by throwing you into prison if you get caught.
