    Re: Federal authorities target 'marijuana industry' in California

    Here's another angle maybe some of you are not thinking about. What other countries out there in the "developed" world, allow the use of this stuff? Amsterdam not included, lol. How much would a private citizen be allowed to have and store? Would a rpivate citizen be allowed to grow their own? If so, i want to be able to legally brew my own moonshine. But aside from that...look at how the US treats other countries that are known drug suppliers to this country. How then, would other countries treat us, because we would, essentially, become a supplier, whether we set out to or not. By us legalizing it, we would, in essence, be forcing other countries to do so as well, in the long run. Making them have more reason to have disdain for the US, since it is portrayed as an imperialistic country that likes to have authoritarian control over it's own citizens, as well as those of other countries.

    Now, I'm not saying this is a valid reason NOT to legalize pot, or any other drug. Just saying it's something to think about.

    They're essentially punishing them for being too noticeable.

    as for transportation and storage, I think that's the state domain as well... up until products wander into the realm of interstate commerce.
    I agree. I'm just telling you that rather than clamping down on medical marijuana in general, the Feds are focusing on the operations which attracted notice.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'm thinking that cocaine and heroin are just a wee bit harder than pot -- and, being illegal, tend to be used to fund other illegal activities.

    Personally, I think the vast majority of what's for sale out there should be legalized, regulated, and taxed.

    How does this differ from other prescription drugs that doctors like to dole out?

    Given your posting record (the depth of its content), it is probably not a very good idea to stereotype a particular demographic in respect to being cognitively delayed.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Your avatar is tripppyyyyYyYy...
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    IOW: What other countries out there in the "developed" world, allow the use of this stuff?... not counting the one that disproves the point I'm about to make.

    We never do.

    Anyway, maybe we should treat marijuana like sex... illegal to sell but free to give away.
