    How apropos.

    Lat time, it was Chinese and opium. Now it's the US and pot. Would seem reasonable to see a similar pattern of fall out.

Also, while they continue to restrict cigarette sales, states are expanding access to marijuana. If CO or WA permit cigarette sales through a vending machine, then I see no different with marijuana. If cigarette vending machines are banned, then these should not be permitted.
    The way everybody was talking .....was they were like thinking that they would make an excess of 20 million. Sure doesn't seem that they made that much money, does it?

    No, you are suggesting a nanny state in which the almighty, infallible government protects us from ourselves and our decisions.

    I have said that MOST of the American citizenry cannot be trusted to run their own lives.
    But they can be trusted to run the lives of others?

    Why wouldn't I be. I'm on the Right side of history..... the MALE one.
    Not even going to dignify that with a comment.

    Considering that most of the population is unable to do it for themselves, who else would you suggest be put in charge, if not the Government?

    No, that's why the Government should be put in charge.... the individual people cannot be trusted, so we need a new system. A system where everything is laid out in a concrete and unchangeable Constitution. Anyone who wants to leave can go, but those who stay will be expected to live to the letter of the law or risk the consequences.

    No idea, I don't follow this that closely. I did hear that there is still a good deal of "black market" marijuana avoiding the taxes and other restrictions.

    People will make their own choices. If they make the wrong choice, they will deal with the consequences. If they ingest an unhealthy substance, they will be to deal with the consequence of being unhealthy.

    No, that's why the Government should be put in charge
    The government is made up of people.

    The machine, called ZaZZZ, will work in a similar way to cigarette machines but includes new technology that requires would-be tokers to scan their driving licence (or other, similar documentation) before they can access the goods.



    Multiple cameras attached to the machine make sure the person swiping the card is definitely its owner and will deny access if there is no obvious match.

    American Green, the creator of the ZaZZZ, has labelled it "an automated, age-verifying, climate-controlled marijuana dispensing machine."

    For the moment, the automated dispensary is only for medical marijuana users, of which there are 2.5 million in the US, but plans are afoot to update them for full commercial use and to include "edibles" such as brownies and cookies.

    The unveiling of the machine comes on the heels of news that Colorado collected £1.2 million in taxes from recreational marijuana suppliers in January; the suppliers themselves rung up $14 million in sales......

    World


    I never thought I would see the day. When they came out with Vending Machines to sell Marijuana. But here it is.....April 14 2014.

    For myself.....I am not against those that are into Marijuana. Medical or recreational. But I do think there has been some falsehoods put out there with the legalization of it. Moreover here Right before the final deadline on taxes, Colorado releases these numbers and is celebrating over them. Now while they gained revenue thru this endeavor. IMO the numbers are not all that great. 1.2 Mil in taxes. I am wondering the cost of legalization and with regulation, what the percentage is on if they are in the red or actually gained.

    The next step is to have these machines for recreational users. Already some are saying they have them in Bars ready to go. Yet have not sold thru this means due to the law. Now while I believe there is more good that is associated with Marijuana.....I have some concerns about access to it by Kids. Granted, I was a kid when I first came into contact with it and began growing up with it. Vending machines.....to me presents a problem with this. As this opens up businesses to more possibilities with crime. As in theft.....armed and unarmed. Despite the concern we know it will end up becoming a reality.

    So.....then I would be adamant about No Vending machines being placed in Businesses around schools. What is your take upon the matter and what say ye?
    Freaking awesome!

    The problem comes when other people have to deal with the consequences of them being unhealthy.

    In this system, yes. In a proper system, the people are simply there to administer the unchanging rules. Nothing more.

    Who cares? It's their problem.

    It is still people writing the rules and administering them. Basically, running other people's lives.

    It is no longer their problem when I'm paying to feed and house these sacks of crap, or to deal with the problems they create..... Like SIX dead Worcester Firefighters on the evening of December 3, 1999. IF these people could exist in a manner where they required zero support from the Government, that might be one thing. They don't exist in that manner, and therefore they become the problem of society as a whole.

    You're missing my point. In a proper system there is nothing to be written after the Constitution is approved. Ther is no wiggle room for modification or clarification. There is only enforcement of law and administration of Justice.
