It's simply a product, legal in some states, illegal in others, and since it's legal federally, the feds who control interstate crossings don't have a say.

    People who live in dry counties bring in alcohol from other counties and the county government has no recourse against the wet counties.

    This is on the states who hold the substance illegal to enforce their law.
    I guess the idea of one state even considering suing another over the amount of weed that is ending up in Kansas and Nebraska from Colorado and the price tag on trying to keep it out shows the burden it has placed on people who don't want it.

    Marijuana edibles don't seem to be that popular with people who buy legal pot unless the person is visiting a state where it is legal. You probably wouldn't want to like a joint in your motel room and have it reported or set off the fire alarm. Also marijuana edibles often have varying dosages within the product. How do you make certain each cookie contains the same amount?

    But your concern is valid and from what I have read the fledgling industry was quick to address the issue and possible solutions.
    It's just something 'new.' It can be handled the same as acoholic treats as well. There are plenty of candies with real booze, chocolate candy bottles with alcohol in them, rum cakes, etc. These have not developed into a problem for the alcohol industry or control, have they?

    I think people are just looking for problems. Yes, there are many new roads and issues here but none particularly unusual or difficult than past ones.

    Shouldnt Kansas and its citizens be responsible for themselves? I mean if they vote to keep it illegal in the state then doesnt that mean that most of them wont be tempted? (Yes, this is a little facetious but there's a kernel of truth there as well).

    Yes. Legalize it so I can stop having to hear about it every 5 minutes.

    I don't see anything giving the federal government the power to ban self destruction.

    It's a state issue, federal bans need to go bye-bye.

    As for my take? Legalize and tax baby!

    No, it's just one of those "burdens" the states have always had since they became a union of individual states. Again, some states hold some things illegal that other states allow. You want to hold something illegal, the costs of enforcing that are entirely up to you.

    Lursa from what I have read, truckloads of the stuff are being apprehended coming from Colorado. Colorado seems to have a problem with people not licensed to grow the stuff producing large quantities. I guess it is easier to get away with growing the stuff when there is so much being grown all over the place. Law enforcement in Kansas and Nebraska have seen a significant increase of the stuff (from Colorado) being sold on the streets. Their arrests are way up. It backlogs the Justice system and costs the taxpayers more money with every case tried. It also puts a burden on citizens increasing law enforcement to handle the load. While Kansas and Nebraska have seen an increase in arrests, Colorado has seen a decrease in burglaries. Less are breaking in and stealing people's flatscreens and computers to sell to get money for weed and instead are stealing a person's stash.

    The same I feel about alcohol. Have people show ID's when buying such things and make it illegal to sell or distribute to minors.
