It's not just drugs we need to worry about, it's the principle of "innocent until proven guilty".  When "possession" is made a crime, you're forced to prove your innocence.  The crime has already been established, because the material is there.  Nixon knew it's a great way to jail people you don't like, & get them back off the voter rolls (see Voting Rights Act).

Now you'll go to jail for possession of drugs, terrorist materials, kiddie porn, unregistered firearms, etc.  Unless, of course, you can prove your innocence.

Let us know how that works out for you.

Some of you are going to be surprised to learn that DUI isn't just for alcohol anymore.  Hasn't been for a couple of decades.

Please don't drive under the influence of anything.  Not just drugs & alcohol, but laptops, cell phones, junk food wrappers, backseat drivers, etc.  You don't drive very well anyway.  We'll have close to 40,000 dead, & over 2,500,000 injured to prove it this year.  And that's just your fellow Americans.

 

Human physiology has limits, & we're just not capable of safely operating motor vehicles, & certainly not at the speeds we currently reach.

End Nixon fail war on drugs.   Pot heads lead normal lives, drunks do not.   I have a life time of experience with both, and drinking is far worse.  Talk to most prosecutors, and the will tell you drunks cause more damage.

The best part is there's no way to send these jobs oveseas.  Most countries can't afford to cultivate a non-food crop, & it's still illegal in the rest.

Why is having more jobs for Americans bad?

Now we are going to have to listen to the cops and prison guard unions talk about how marijuana makes people eat their children and kill their own grandparents......should have never been illegal anyway

Heh, Texas is so backward I doubt it will be legal here until it's the last state left. too many rednecks thinking someone might take their beer away from them....which is kind of sad, Texas has excellent growing conditions for marijuana, could be a big cash crop.   I haven't had any weed for 40 years, been itching to try it for fun and for my aches and pains and vision, but don't know anybody to get it from.  Can't drink anymore because of my meds.  I see a vacation to Colorado in my future...love looking at those mountains anyway.

Strange how the government ignores the idea of a new tax revenue source.

While it would never be used this way,i say half of the taxs go towards health care and the other half towards the national debt.

As for driving while under the influence of Marijuana, I admit to doing so while travlin' throughtout the US of A. If it wasn't for the utilization of this wonderful natural plant, I wouldn't have been able to do such a thing! And just imagine, I never even came close to harming anyone while doing so!

 

What you should be upset with me for is that I also jeapordized many peoples lives by driving a manual transmission vehicle while not having full use of my lower extremities! If it hadn't been for this wonderful plant, I wouldn't have recovered from being paralyzed from the waist on down as well as I have!

 

As for all of the retoric on the misinformaton of Cannibis, mankind has manipulated and or distorted the truth for nothing but profit. This plant has many different uses other that to try to acheive a "high".

 

And if you think that I must be stoned out of my mind, that, unfortunately is not the case! I have been out of my medication for many, many months! Despite the pain I still deal with on a daily basis and without my medication of choice, I will never utilize man-made meds! I would rather deal with the pain as is than become a money source for the "Big P".

 

So with me living now living in the heart of the bible belt, I do not have access to what helps me get through my day a lil' bit easier. Oh well! One day soon, a roadtrip will have to be planned!

as an ex -cop and seeing lives lost and families destroyed along with the devastation to economies that this and other drugs have cost i cannot understand what you will now say to those affected.How would you justify to those countries that have spent so much time and resources trying to eradicate this drugs.How do you now explain to the good men of militaries  who have fought terrorists funded by this and other drugs.Just how much money would it pump into the economy and would it be worth it to deal with headaches legalisation would bring?

I'm confused...I thought the process of inhaling smoke into your lungs was a health risk in general??   You know, that's why second hand smoke can kill young kids because any amount of carcinogen, even a "wiff" if cigarette smoke from a guy 5 feet away can kill you??  Doesn't pot contain at least the same amount of carcinogen as smelling the smoke from one cigarette outside a door 5-10 feet away???

If pot is illegal then enforce the laws.  States should have no right to legalize something that is federally illegal.  Vets have no jobs, then give these military people jobs getting rid of drugs and rounding up the sellers & distributors for prosecution.

Abolish the DEA; that was another fear tactic concept initiated by the Republicans that didn't work and only gave criminal records to millions of young men.  Thanks to the biggest crook of them all Nixon and his cronie on the House UN-American Activities Committee Ronald Teflon Reagan the Drug WARS FAILED, FAILED, FAILED.  TAX Mary Jane and give it a rest.  Regulate it like Tobacco and reap the benefits in Revenues.  It will eliminate the National Debt unless those worthless pieces of merde find another way to F**K things up!

  • Aug gold fell into negative territory in morning action as the dollar index strengthened after an advance GDP reading showed a 4.0% expansion during Q2 (Briefing.com consensus expected GDP to increase 3.2%). The move lower also came ahead of the latest policy statement from the FOMC released at 14:00 ET. The yellow metal slipped from its session high of $1303.00 per ounce and spent the remainder of the session trading in the red. It eventually settled with a 0.3% loss at ... More
