    I sure hope so. Anyone from WA and CO have any insight??? I think modern music needs a shot in the a#@ of something. What do you all think??:cool:

    Haha, this is a good argument for legalizing pot - improve the crappy commercial music scene. Are you saying that Justin Beiber doesn't sound good when you're stoned?

    So far it's raised our homeless rate of teenagers riding the bus one way. Then they live on the food stamps and trade for pot. Accidents involving marihuana influence are also way up.

    It's not ok to toke and drive people

    True that. Not a post advocating anything......understand though it is probably inevitable. 5 years or less....The Social ramifications will be interesting and probably not as harmful as the Casinos opening everywhere IMO

    I think we see a super-concentrated outcome being one of only a few places it's legalized. The Fed needs to either go all in or all-out strictly for consistency.

    As for Prog music, any good hippie worth his weight in weed doesn't need legalization to be creative

    You need good LSD for that music.
    Pot is for Reggae or Folk

    Correlation does not equal causation. Since marijuana is legal, it stands to reason that more drivers test positive for THC. The problem is the tests only test for metabolization, and can't test for inebriation.

    I think anyone who wanted to score in Washington always could perfectly easily, and at much lower rates than the state shops are asking. Besides, hippies don't wear capes, everyone knows that. [​IMG]

    Yes but as a member of the law enforcement community I have a real good idea how this works
  13. Will the inevitable legalization of Pot revitalize Prog and Psychedelic Music?? Maybe. The good news is that it will probably happen. The bad news is not in my lifetime.

    It will probably do more for the fast food industry, increase both sales of cheap burgers as well as the supply of people flipping them. :)

    Naw, lots of baaaaad hipster type music. Ghost core folk punk, with jazzy overtones.

    Nope. Weed laws have NEVER stopped anyone I know from partaking who wanted to; Prog is just a niche thing (one I happen to like) and that's okay by me.

    Is this thread derailed yet?
    Lets hear some more pseudo politics and unsubstantiated opinions, folks!

    Legalization has been a boon for live classical music in Colorado, hopefully we'll see more data soon.
