We all know that if you couldn't grow you're own Marijuana that it would be legal and sold everywhere, like yesterday.
But there is no way that the GubMint will ever cut out the middle man. Even with huge profits from taxation on every pack sold. They want every last penny from anything grown and if that can't happen. The horror stories will continue about the use and abuse. And people will still be incarcerated for years at a rediculous cost to every State and the Country.

Only that you should never believe the value you're told on the news. If I had had to pay those prices when I was just leaving high school I would have starved to death.

While "the news" arent the ones making those numbers up, they are the ones too lazy to go out and do some unbiased research.

Is it just me, or is Ke$ha actually Ann Coulter...??
I mean, yeah, she does look younger than Ann, but there is also a lot of makeup involved.  Just seems too close to be a coincidence...

I'm against it. We don't need more people with altered brains on the streets. We have enough problems with alcohol as it is, we don't need legal MJ on top of that... No way.

Because everyone who has ever used alcohol is a reprobate lush.

Dems move to change federal pot laws
Reps. Earl Blumenauer and Jared Polis to introduce bill Tuesday to end prohibition

http://www.salon.com/2013/02/04/dems_move_to_change_federal_pot_laws/

“You folks in Washington and my friends in Colorado really upset the apple cart,” Blumenauer said. “We’re still arresting two-thirds of a million people for use of a substance that a majority feel should be legal. … It’s past time for us to step in and try to sort this stuff out.”


“We’re seeing enormous political momentum to undo the drug war failings of the past 40 years,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, who has been working with lawmakers on marijuana-related bills. “For the first time, the wind is behind our back.”


Blumenauer said he expects to introduce the tax-code legislation as well as a bill that would reschedule marijuana under the Controlled Substances Act, allowing states to enact medical marijuana laws without fear that federal authorities will continue raiding dispensaries or prosecuting providers. It makes no sense that marijuana is a Schedule I drug, in the same category as heroin and a more restrictive category than cocaine, Blumenauer said.

Keep in mind, I'm a proponent of such legislation even though I won't be partaking.  True fiscal conservatives should laud this legislation as long past due.  We waste billions every year policing, prosecuting, and warehousing people for a drug which is far less deleterious to society than alcohol.

I still could not pass the opportunity for a clever re-write:

“We’re seeing enormous political momentum to undo, oh, wait...where was I?  Oh, that drug war thing has just sucked! who's got some Dr. Pepper, I've got killer cotton mouth,” said Bill Piper, director of national affairs for the Drug Policy Alliance, who has been working with lawmakers on marijuana-related bills. “For the first time, the smoke is behind our back.”

This doesn't help the case for legalization.

Meh...

I have many friends and friends of docs who will not seek a script because of this: http://www.wbur.org/2013/02/19/marijuana-laws

One potential scenario: A doctor who becomes a medical marijuana patient would be at “significant risk” of violating his or her license to practice medicine, according to Bill Ryder, legislative and regulatory counsel for the Massachusetts Medical Society.

Come on Feds...follow suit in the states rights cause. We know it's hard with all those state whacko's on the extreme right trying to be revolutionaries and take over our culture from the bottom up. Let it go Federalies! The fight is on!

You're not supposed to be driving on medical marijuana (or any prescription painkillers) so this shouldn't matter.

So basically they found out that if you get so stoned you don't really want to drive you can't drive, unless you're a habitual user in which case you apparently can drive OK. And even if you're not, you've gotta smoke a gram of some of the most potent marijuana in existence inside of an hour or two to get stoned enough to be visibly impaired. TV news is awesome.

The Daily Mail is awesome, too, completely misrepresenting the text of the story in the lede.
