    Here and now? I've been getting the 'Drugs are bad' speil since the 60's. Never bothered with them much but certainly saw the failure of the "War on Drugs."

    I see lots of possibilities and almost all of them are positive...and again...I dont even use pot nor care to. While I can see some drawbacks, I dont see them as any different than other 'substances' that we use freely in society and see govt infringement as unConstitutional in general on things like this.

    What 'more' do you see that is or could be negative?

    Exactly my point...so butt out. It's none of your business what other people do and school prayer is allowed in some circumstances. (The tax thing is bogus and wasnt in the post I responded to.)

    Regardless, I believe what I believe - I'm socially conservative and fiscally center/left. I believe in traditional family values, and a fair society that doesn't exclude any social class from fully participating. I believe in managed capitalism along with universal healthcare, I believe everyone has a right to a dignified job that pays them a living wage, and I believe that marriage is between a man and a woman, abortion should be the absolute last resort (if it should be allowed at all), and that the family and the church should be the strongest social institutions in the country.

    Good for you. I have no idea what any of that has to do with pot smoking but pot has certainly contributed much less to death and violence and domestic abuse than cigarettes or alcohol. Moralize all you want, but I hate hypocrisy (pot being illegal compared to nicotine or alcohol) and $$ wasted on useless things like the "War on Drugs."

    Re: High Demand: Price of legal marijuana soars in Colorado

    I've only taken one puff of marijuana in my life, hated it and never went back. Now I'm old and creaky, and although my lungs are shot so smoking is out, I'd love to make a nice tea that would take away pain and make my dreary existence seem dreamy!

    We can supposedly get medical MJ here in California, but there's a loophole in the law that allows cities and counties to forbid the sale and growing of MJ inside their limits, so basically it might as well still be illegal, since in most of the state various asshole city councils and county supervisors have bowed to the politics of their constituents. Unfortunately, I don't live in a "blue" county, so no MJ tea for me.

    Why do you keep quoting me then argue with a strawman? I never said anything you declare that I said. Try to make a point without making stuff up for a change.
