    Re: Can Marijuana Help Rescue California's Economy?

    when I smoke with my friends after work I go home at 11:30, 12:30 at the latest and get plenty of sleep and wake up feeling fine.

    when I drink with my friends after work I stay out until 2, get in fights and wake up with a jackhammer in my head and a need to vomit.

    pot making you less able just isn't going to fly.

    I like beer a lot, and I consume vastly more of it then weed, but weed is clearly the less dangerous drug.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    I find people like this limited in life and I pity them.


    I have no respect for buffoons like this. Sure there are people who use marijuana responsibly, but just like the alcoholic, the chronic weed smoker is not the type of person I would hire, trust, or consider a value to society.



    The idiocy, that making weed available could be the sole savior of the California economy is stupid. Nothing but the rantings of a weed first buffoon.


    Oh and if weed is truly a medicine, it is immoral for California to tax it. Unless the whole thing is a sham.
    You obviously don't get out much then.

    Weed is very similar in usage to alcohol. Many people drink only at social functions...as do some people who only smoke weed at a party where it is available.

    Others have a drink a few times a week...as do many people who smoke weed.

    Some people have a drink every night when they come home from work to wind down. Some people smoke a joint.

    Some people are alcoholics and drink to excess. Some people do the same with MJ.

    To assume that every person who smoke weed are "Spicollis" as in "Fast times at Ridgemont High" shows that you have little understanding of the world around you.

    I think weed is a lot safer. While high I've never gotten a fight, fallen off my bike, revealed any unpleasant truths, puked, pissed myself or stolen anything.

    All of which happens more or less frequently when I get black out drunk.

    When I get the equivalent of black out drunk with weed I literally can't move, posing no risk to myself or others.

    seriously just conduct some primary research. get a case of beer and see what you do and how you feel afterwards.

    get an eighth and do the same.

    It's about time. There is a huge revenue potential for Marijuana, not only for the state in taxes but for businesses. By legalizing Marijuana we will be bringing new businesses to life and, while lessening the need for criminal dealers, bring out the entrepreneur in dealers to run a successful and legit business.

    There is so much business potential for not only suppliers but for marketers. I can see expansive social networks and critique businesses similar to beer and wine.
