    Cultivation and use of small quantities of marijuana by those over 21. Thoughts?

  5. As a resident of California with a medical card, I am glad that someone is at least stepping up to lead the charge. I wonder how many states it'll take to get the federal laws changed.

    Governor Hickenlooper said while its still illegal federally, they will follow through with the voters wishes. Just dont bust out the cheetos and goldfish right away.

    i smoke in their honor!

    Who wants to move with me?
     
  8. Move? Are you kidding me? I'm entirely too medically "relaxed" to move off the couch, let alone leave the state. But I do approve your movement.

    On a more serious note, this will test the notion that the only reason criminal elements exist in and around medical marijuana is that it's not widely available and therefore still highly profitable.

    I for one, being from Arkansas-the state that pissed all over the idea tonight- look at the idea from a purely political and moral standpoint. Personal gain holds absolutely ZERO grounds for my views on why it should be legal.


    Until it is legal.

    Then, well I will save a lot of money on Alcohol, which I haven't much cared for since the first time I tried it ... sigh

    sure would like to hear some old Tool while stoned again.

  15. How dare you damn the great state of California! And even more so Santa Cruz county. It's basically legal here.
     
  16. Meh. I'm not convinced it's a good idea but I'm absolutely sure it's inevitable. Might as well profit from it instead of spending billions fighting it.

    Exactly. I think we will see a whole lot of education from this. Many people still don't fully grasp what positives can really come of this. Good for Washington and Colorado. They are my heroes tonight. I have many different reasons why I feel the way that i do. I'm not some random stoner. Oh on the contrary, I don't smoke. But I fully agree with legalization.
     
  18. coming from the east coast, we salute you. Please smoke a fat doobie in honor of your fellow brethren still living in the pot dark ages
     
  19. Let me ask a serious question in order to satisfy my own curiosity:

    First of all, I don't do it myself, but I have no problem with people lighting up. However, I do have a problem with those people getting behind the wheel of a car, the same as I have with people who have been drinking.

    With alcohol, there is a reliable field test to determine whether one is under the influence. What about with dope? Everyone knows that it stays in the body for weeks after ingestion, so it's there long after the "fun" is gone. Does it concern anyone that an impairing substance would be legalized without a way to determine if someone is in actuality impaired at a particular time? If not, why not?
