    It pretty much is safe so long as you know what you are doing. Like always use a latex condom that is lubricated on both sides. Make sure its a brand new one each and every time you have sex and cum. You know its pretty safe if people used condoms.

    In 1919, amendment 18 and the Volstead Law declared alcohol Illegal on Federal bases.
    The violation to that law flooded very fast the legal system.
    In 1924, Federal prisons had duplicated their population.
    An study on parliamentary issues demonstrated that public lawyers waisted about 44% of their time in problems related wit the prohibition..
    Corruption became a huge part of the legal system.
    Lincoln C. Andrews (prohibition boss) testified in 1926 that 875 bureaucrats were fired because of corruption, bribery and inappropriate behavior.
    Gangs controlled the Illegal sells of alcohol. There were FIVE THOUSAND clandestine pubs only in Chicago.
    Violent crimes were common on Chicago streets.
    When the prohibition ended gangs stopped operating, and even in spite of the crisis the crime’s rates were down.

    We are supposed to LEARN from our mistakes, there’s evidence that prohibition is wrong.

    Didn’t we learn anything?

    That’s another issue. Prostitution exists we all know that. Making it Illegal only makes it more expensive and dangerous, and of course a hypocritical society feels good denying the truth.

    well at least A conservative is using one. I was used to believing conservatives didn't use condoms because they were the devil's object.

For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Federal law does not always win over state law.
    Federal law has to meet a set of guidelines before it can be enacted over all the states.

    The feds would have a hard time arguing that they have the right to control a substance that is only sold in California, it doesn't meet the qualifications of interstate commerce.

    What a difference a decade makes in opinion. It is just a matter of time, and this vote was apparently a few years too early, and had a few too many opponents with millions of dollars worth of potential revenue loss at stake had it went through.

    We have enemies engaged in both sides of this "drug war" united today celebrating this victory, the criminals and the law (as a government institution, not necessarily law as a conglomerate of all individuals). Their money still flows, their lucrative war still rages. The ones who lose are the millions of people caught in the crossfire.

    now if only politicans would support it as much as the public does...How many people in congress are supportive on Marijuana legalization?? I assume it's less than 5 total.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
