    If you want to use advertising to draw parallels:

    Whats that you say? Cig ads are not on TV? hmmm interesting.. it seems smoking is looked on with disdain and is almost universally viewed as being not glamorous, why would that be diff just cause marijuana was legal?

    which brings us right back to:

    That is, though a state may not make it illegal, it can still be illegal under federal law.


    The federal government clearly has the power to regulate interstate commerce and intrastate commerce that affects interstane commerce. If that power applies to the wheat a farmer would like to keep for his own personal use (which it does) then it applies to intra-state pot.
    Have I lost my mind, or is GOOBIEMAN arguing in favor of federal power over state power? IN favor of an expansive interpretation of the Commerce clause rather than against it?

    I must be smoking crack, that's the only explanation.

    No the truth is that statist social cons only support the 10th when its for legislation they agree with. Nixing the drug war isnt popular among them. Got to think of the children and other crap.

    I'm not sure what you're asking?

    Yes there is a difference between the THC levels of Industrial Hemp and recreational/medicinal Marijuana. You cannot smoke enough Hemp to get you high. This is a factor for outside Marijuana growers. The Hemp will pollinate Marijuana and ruin the harvest by diluting the THC level.

    If the DEA was interested in stamping out the growing of POT in national parks and public lands, they would plant hemp and let it grow wild. But they would rather spend billions choppering in with a special forces type team to raid the grow sites. And we tax payers foot the bill.

    I would assume that you would need a license to grow it and I doubt anyone with a felony or drug related charge would be granted a license.

    Now, as an import from Mexico... yeah I can see our idiotic government allowing imported Marijuana, instead of protecting the, pardon the expression, home grown industry. the idiots. I mean we already import a lot of Hemp products. In 1997 an conservative estimate was $2.9 million trade deficit on Hemp product imports.

    Make it legal to grow it your back garden. No supply chain necessary.

    Not everyone can grow things, due to available time, space or just plain brown thumbs.

    Besides, the government wouldn't be able to tax it.

    As long as they package the ad right, it'll eventually be there.
