    This may surprise you, but I think it should be decriminalized. This makes me more a Libertarian than Conservative, and in those political position polls, I always end up right by Milton Friedman.

    We should be left alone to the greatest extent possible. Salt, soda, trans fat, smoking... and extending it to taxes, regulations, and the like... so I find it odd that the Omnipotent and Omnipresent Left is so gung-ho for weed. As if it's some great asset to one's life and existence. It isn't, but if someone wants to get loaded... and even every minute of the day... so be it (so long as your employer can set standards and fire your ass if he doesn't want a pot head)... but please... Leftists... **** off with your controlling our lives as if we are retards. Which is how you folks treat the masses.

    Both the right AND the left have used big government for things they want to control peoples lives with. It was the right that wanted to ban flag burning, gay marriage, and seeks to be the morality police for the populace.

    Democrats - the racist slave owners of old, fools of modern time, thieves of wealth, warmongers
    Republicans - the hypocritical moral police of modern time, thieves of wealth, warmongers

    And yet people still 'identify' with this?

    I'm ashamed to say I've voted for a Democrat and Republican. I should have known better.

    Putting people in jail for smoking a plant is insanity.

    Conversely: not putting people in jail for manufacturing chemical drugs is insanity

    The vast majority would probably agree. Oddly, the vast majority will still vote for these corrupt sociopathic political institutions.

    And Obamacare can only promise to increase those costs.

    At one time the entertainment industry promoted the idea that drugs were cool. If they began promoting the idea that you have to be really, really stupid to deliberately addle your brain then perhaps it might have a positive effect on younger people.

    I agree that it should be legalized but also, like littering, spitting on the side walk or exposing yourself, it should become socially unacceptable and seriously frowned upon.

    Your comparisons are laughable.

    What the right asks of a civil society does not run the country 17 TRILLION in debt and cause 60 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities.

    You can make all the excuses all you want but the fact is that not all of that 17 TRILLION happened under Obama but then that would go against your pathetic partisan hackery. Sorry you hate facts that the right also uses big government as the morality police.

    Your comments just confirm your hackery.

    Obama is responsible for 5TRILLION in 5-years, and the other 12 trillion you can point to Socialist legislation... as well as the 60TRILLION in unfunded Socialist liabilities.
    It's not limited government that causes these burdens on future generations... but hey, call me a partisan hack (a defender of Liberty, Freedom and Limited government)... so long as you realize you are blind, dumb and well... a major league ignorant.

    Do we have a Deal? ROTFLOL...

    And it's not hackery to point out the obvious... that it is Socialist legislation... you know... programs like ObamaKare, where they promise great things and when reality hits the fan their Socialist Theories look more than absolutely moronic.

    But hey... keep on being a Belieber if you must... and I realize some people must because they have not just wedded themselves to a destructive ideology, but have welded themselves to it. They cannot retreat... but the intellectually honest like Krauthammer (and myself) do. When proven wrong... the honest change course. It's may not be the most comfortable to realize you've been wrong, but abandoning failure is liberating. You ought to try it.

    Back to the topic. Again, the problems in CO schools with those underage is entirely due to a failure on the part of teachers and police to educate on the new law. And are we seeing similar problems in Washington state where it is also now legal?
