Unreal, this can't be true.

1.) Make it legal.
2.) Only the Government can grow it?!?!?
3.) Tax and regulate the h e l l out of it.
4.) Just as stiff penalties for DUI potheads/methheads/cokeheads as DWI cirrhosis of the liver makers.
5.) Let the pot smokers out of prison.

People in these weed legal states need to realise that the Feds can still raid your property and take your house.

Is prayer in schools still illegal? That's the real menace ;-)

they're decriminalizing under a certain amount.
if we didn't have enough problems with all the
border jumpers here driving around full of beer.
i've written some letters that i hope may do some
good. i hope to change the law to where someone who
is drunk or high and mortally injures someone while
driving would get the death penalty with no appeal.
i know a lot of the potheads think it's neat to live
their life in a constant high, but not at the expense
of mine or someone else's life. i've nearly been
run over by someone who thought a lunchtime
joint or two wouldn't hurt anything, and they ended up
running through the office wall near where i was
standing. if anyone had been standing right at the
wall they would have been dead or crippled.

The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.

Trump has already indicted that he is going to step in on this fad. Don't look to him to decriminalize weed.

I can't see how legalising weed is some kind of a states rights issue. Ban firearms but make weed legal?

i don't know how it all works.
someone that wants to cook their brain or
destroy their organs, well i say have at it.
just don't get out in public where you can
hurt someone or damage their property or
steal to support your habit.
i've never wanted to be to where my reactions
or thought processes were slowed or dulled.
i want to be in control of what i do, not to be
wondering whether or not i'm really seeing what
my eyes say i'm seeing because my brain is fuzzy.
if you take someone's life because of your decision
to be in an impaired state of mind, you should
pay with your life, no slack no mercy. we're better
off without you. i've never understood it. i've seen
some really smart people and talented top-of-their-field
tradesmen ruin their health and their lives and lives
of others with booze and dope.

I do not want law to allow a pothead/cokehead/methhead/et al "heads" to injure, maim, or kill a hapless innocent before something can be done legally. That assumes too much risk on the back of John Q. Public. Who's next? Me and you?

Me either Ranger, oh sure I smoked some weed when I was a kid but it's kid stuff and people grow up. Those who never did as they got older didn't amount to a hill of beans. Going into the Navy after high school was the last time I ever smoked it. Even if it were legal I still wouldn't use it, have no desire too.

My little sister Joanne was put on medical weed out in Ca. She hated it, flushed it and tore up her card.
Niska has never tried it in her entire life, for obvious reasons.
