    What's wrong with you? If we legalize pot, people might actually smoke it. Your children could be smoking joints and ordering Domino's as we speak!

    I feel safe with the federal government telling me that I can't smoke weed, not even in the privacy of my own home. Just feels warm as apple pie.

    So how would this work? Are they going to be selling it at state stores like liquor? I assume you won't be able to stop at the 7-11 and pick up some pot with your Cheetos and Big Gulp (although that would kind of perfect).

    It won't because these laws don't change anything on the Federal level. DEA will still control who or what sells marijuana.

    Possession is not a federal crime. So if a state legalizes it, only the dealers have to look over their shoulder. Makes it a lot less cost effective for the feds to get involved.

    And God damn your sig, Chino

    Everything is a federal crime, including possession of small amounts of weed.

    Big Pharma would lose money. Imagine if people could grow their own meds instead of having to pay 500$ for a pill.

    The current regime threatening to arrest state officials involved in legal medical dispensaries run by the state is proof of this.

    Remember how they threatened to withhold federal highway funds if the states didn't impose the 55mph speed limit?
    I would challenge anybody to prove the legality or illegality has a whole lot to do with consumption. Doesn't stop people that want it, doesn't mean everybody starts if its legalized.

    Its funny, I go into Vancouver about 3 times a month for work. Everyone smokes weed. They say that the only reason they can't legalize it completely (cops have stopped enforcing small amount possession) is because the US govt is putting pressure and it would fuck up the border.

    Canada sucks just as much as the US, they raided a guys house a few weeks ago because they thought he was growing, after ripping the plants out and getting them back to the station they found out it was just daisy's

    Imagine if someone in your family was gunned down by trigger happy cops just because you had some wild daisy's in your yard.
