The DJIA is down 130 points today yet all the pot stocks are flying high (pun intended) thanks to Colorado. Latteno Food Corp (Ticker: LATF) was up over 100% at one point today. CBIS strong too.

8% percent is still to much , I'm not that selfish to agree to let pot be legal so I can have my pleasure , and a young person can have it legal , the take the next step up to harder drugs because pot stopped being strong enough for him or her , even one person that makes that mistake is to much for me . we all efect each other wether we want to or not , And we are all responsible for each other wether we want to be or not , This world is a me world and thats so sad , that why there is always war , us little people should at least try not to be  so  into our selfs all the time , and try to help each other out more , including sacerfice some things we enjoy  I don't believe in 2012 21 , but at the same I dont think its such a bad idea if it does happen , Somthing needs to happen so us people would just stop thinking about our selfs ,   there is to much abuse in this world , and its getting worse and I'm not just talking about drugs ,,,,,,,Look around you people , where is it going to stop,   I know my opinion doesnt's matter in the sceem of things , And I know nothing i just said is going to change anything , this world is going to destroy is self , not matter what I say , but If I can help one person , just one , thats all that matters to me,,,,,,,So what ever is said  isn't going to efect me , unless its good,

Regulating this industry will probably be tough. Also, how do you determine it someone is under the influence? THC stays in your system a long time. I wonder if they will develop a breathilizer for it like they have for alcohol?

The government will fail to regulate weed on any level. The door is open now. I say adopt India's policy which is grow, smoke, and share. No sales of any kind. This is not a government issue and won't save our failing, fake, fiat, monetary system. There is no more money to borrow folks. The great American experiment is over because of our dishonest money. Need money? Just print more and devalue what we have left. Screw the old folks who saved when a dollar was worth something. The government is irrelevant and won't be anywhere around when the **** hits the fan let alone regulate weed. These fools can't help help in a simple storm system like Sandy. What's going to happen when your money no longer buys anything. Let's take a moment to remember what happened to the former Soviet Union in the 80's. It no longer exists.

Each state should have a referendum about this, and collectively tell the feds to mind their own business. This is a states right issue. The taxes raised after legalization, and the reduction in prison and other enforcement costs would be staggering.

The only time I tried pot in the 80's my reflexes were sooo slow we were driving at 40 miles x hour on a 55 miles x hour, we were laughing so hard I was changing lanes  back and forth; I dont smoke or do any drugs for 20 years; I don't think people should drive and smoke pot

I don't know?

Let me say this. It was 1962 I was 14 years old the first time I heard about pot. My friends were talking and I said what is pot and they told me it's something to smoke and it makes you feel good. I said OH! Well as life goes on around 16 or so I did try some because it seemed like so many of my friends were doing it and bragging and stuff. Pot was cheap $20. an ounce. You kind of had to hunt for it though. Everyone knew it was not legal and if you get caught you get in trouble. Well for me I didn't like it so I left if be.

So many of my friends really thought it was the best thing on earth. What I saw was mostly these friends round up wasted most of the time and had poor judgment and very undisaplined life styles. They usually were in trouble with their parents, the school, the law and or had failed at their first marriages. Pot wasn't the only culpret though as they had abusive habits with alcohol and other drugs, pills etc. I don't know how they did it they always seemed to come up with the money to keep on going.

So from my expeirence I don't see any benefit to ones self or family because of pot.

I know many feel pot to be good. I do not.

I know I am sick and tired with this FAKE war on drugs.

I EXPECT there might be REAL BENEFIT for pain relief of realality escape from products derived from marajuanna. My guess is the Pharmcutical industry knows marajuanna can not be controlled with out some legal attachment like perscription requirements OR A WAR. The risk for there lose of money and control for things that work no better is to great for them to bare.

If somehow a compromise can be made so that the ones who feel marajuanna use is acceptable and our society can be safe with it's use then MAYBE I CAN go along with that. I am still trying to evolve on this whole marajuanna issue. At this time I DO NOT want it available AND I DO NOT WANT TO WAR over marajuanna.

The United States won't allow the Native American (Indians) own Casino's. This country is a screwed up as any other country when it comes to laws and governing people. Still a slave system. If you work for slave (weekly) wages. When you get your CHECK look at it. You will see GROSS and see NET. Look at the difference. The government (company owned store) has taken it's share first before you even got your hands on the money YOU WORKED FOR. The saddest thing is. THE Government at all levels is in the RED. THEY WASTE and MISPEND the money they have taken from us. If WE THE PEOPLE (who work) don't pay the tax WE GO TO JAIL. Now if that is not slavery what is? So only because I see our government as mostly to curupt I think it's time to evolve and say let the Marajuanna grow for ones own pocession and use. I the Pharmcutical and government wants to refine it and make it medically available, or commerically available then do that too. If I want to grow A (one) tobacco plant and make myself a cigar or cigarette and smoke one once in a while I can. Marajuanna should be the same. Put a reefer in every pocket and a plant in every yard. Tax the medical stuff and commerial stuff leave the personal use users alone.

LET THE PHARMACUTICAL COMPANYS fight there own war on drugs.

Until the federal government reclassifies marijuana as a non-narcotic it doesn't matter what the states do. Growing, Distributing, Conspiracy to Distribute can and will result in FEDERAL charges and jail time, confiscation of property, and a criminal record. So write your congessmen and senators. bury the White house in Faxes and e-mails! The Fed will phuck you, no matter what laws your state passes!  This needs to be addressed at the Federal level or it's just pissing in the wind! Proceed at your own peril if you invest in Pot businesses before the Fed pulls their collective heads out of their a$$!

It's so very tremendous in correlation in today's necessity according to science and technology. All should be aware and not beware of its impact. Society is not far, energy is readily available. This breakthrough in the field of art is crucial to humans' standards and virtue. No, no one can undervalue what is precious. None in man's history we can merry. we should give up our pride. Let us surrender ourselves. Let be one. One in this land. All people should grawl, please credit this word as lion's. Though, all humans should behave properly, so that Good Morals and Right Conduct grade of everyone is high.

I feel marijuana should be legalized---but all those who are talking about not having a problem driving while loaded help me understand why the authorities resist doing so.

Record yourself doing a task both loaded and then agian straight. Be honest with your self.

You may not enjoy the task as much when your straight but you will be faster and more accurate.

I have undergone a non successful spinal operation, the outcome being constant pain. My doctor prescribed a THC capsule, One capsule  twice a day relived 90% of th pain but my  Insurance won't aprove it. It would cost $1200.00 per month if I pay out of pocket.

Insurance will provide six 10 mg. Loratabs a day for $30.00 a month.

After a short amount of time I've become addictied to the Loratab and no longer get 10% of the pain relief.

My goverment that knows better then my doctor and is looking out for me.

I'll bet real easte in Colorado has increased in value in the last month,

The prohibitionists all forget one thing about the legalizing of marijuana, and that is, we cannot grow Industrial hemp for products, but we import 430 million in raw material. Out of at least 22 Industrialized countries, such as Canada, China, Germany, the U.K., who all still maintain a drug law, can grow Industrial hemp. Why then does this stop us, seriously ask yourself. Is it because we have a lot of corporations who don't want it to exist. The head of the DEA, says we can't tell the difference in the fields, or someone might grow real Marijuana in the field. Both are bunk, first,, two photos were shown to the Head of the DEA, that came from Canadian Mounties in an airplane, clearly a difference. Second, Those who plant marijuana would not want the inferior hemp plant next to their virgins, because you like to keep them that way and male pollen from Industrial Hemp would fertilize and ruin a good crop of Marijuana.

Legalizing pot will put more people to work. In our area we are experiencing the gas boom, but you have to be able to pass a pee test. Just because you like a little erb doesn't mean you can't be a productive person.

Here's the rub.  The argument is not even about the potential harm from marijuana vs. alcohol, or even about increased tax revenue from legalization.  The fact is that many if not most employers now require pre-employment drug screens (you can't even get a job at a convenient store without have to take a pee test).  So on one hand we are telling people that it is OK to smoke pot whenever you want to, but on the other hand, sabotaging their prospects to find a good job.

I have to move to Colorado to stop commiting crimes. That crime. Smoking weed. I make money at work like everybody. I use it to by guns for the Mexican Cartel. I give them thousands of dollars every year. My Government want's me to do it. I'm going to buy some weed later today. The Cartel will make $100.00 dollars off me. Enough for box of bullets. Those bullets kill Americans every day. Everybody thank the Government every time an innocent person gets killed.  LEGALIZE   Just get it done!!!!!

I don't care one way or another! I don't smoke the stuff and the few times I did about 50 years ago it just put me to sleep. Can you imagine driving a car while sleeping? Think about it!

NJ is still not allowing legal medical weed.  Instead they have their hand out to raise taxes.  The voters of NJ voted for this at least 6 ys ago (not sure - wasn't living here).  Yet our Pillsbury Dough Boy wants to legalise OTB (Feds say this is illegal) but won't let weed be legal (Feds also say illegal) . Is it wrong to help people in pain with a legal med, or just help those millionaires who profit frm racing!
