    Let me just say this, if weed was legal I don't think I would ever touch another drop of liquor again my entire life, probably live longer and never get glaucoma.

    The problem here is that the stoners forgot where their precinct voting place was. That didn't affect Jerry Brown though, since he won the Moonbeam vote. Lucky him.

    They were like, "Dude. Didn't we just vote? That couldn't have been more than a couple of years ago. Wow. Hey, check out this grape kush I got down at the 7-11. Have you seen my controller?"

    And yet you still avoid addressing the point. I also fail to see how this would be defined as "radical liberalism".

    This is an issue that transcends political affiliations, and one would think legalization would and should be a conservative issue.. more freedom, less nanny state, reduced spending, and smaller government.

    I think because pot is associated with hippies, hippies tend to be liberal, also associated with minorities also tend to be a bit more liberal, etc. I don't know one sound minded person in Kentucky, Republican or Democrat that thinks it's a bad thing to let people get a little high and not have to worry about pissing dirty. Want to know why people do hardcore drugs? Because pot, something that will just make you giggle a lot and eat a bunch of Doritos stays in your system for about 2 weeks to a month. Crack? about 2-3 days.

    You make pot legal, you get rid of a lot of problems and the domino effect is savings to the tax payer.

    Hey. If America is stupid enough to leave money on the table, help finance organized crime, waste money on useless prohibition, we deserve to pay the tax for just being dumbasses. In fact, sometimes I think if we had a tax on stupid, we would have NEVER ran into a deficit.

    We do it's called booze and tobacco. One of the Japanese engineers at work told me in Japan, they pay about $2.50 for a pack of cigarettes. Here we pay about an average of $5. A lot of that is the "sin tax" and other various taxes used to fund education, children's healthcare, etc. If marijuana was legal the cost of it would go down, however that would leave room to tax the **** out of it, so either way you would be paying just the same as buying it illegally right now.

    Frit-O-Lay? Their stock will triple and they would put so many people to work by building new potato chip factories. Just think of how many jobs will be created.

    This is an accurate statement! ^^^ I'm for legalization of weed! And I'm (Last time I checked) very conservative.
