I never touch the stuff, but if it makes you feel better I am easily confused.

When Californians go to the polls in November they will not only be voting for our next President they will be voting to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. If it passes, it will increase the state's revenue by $1 billion in addition to saving the state government millions more in costs associated with police, courts and correctional facilities.

And what better way to actually get folks to go to the polls to vote for the next president! Betting a good turnout for Ca.

Fingers crossed.
Perhaps then bottled water won't be as expensive.

It needs to be decriminalized on a federal level. The Feds still raid medical marijuana dispensaries in Ca and they confiscate all of their product and press charges on the owners. How many times can a small business owner recoup that? It's bullshit.

They should be working on THAT before they legalize recreational use.

There is still a lot of interpretation difficulty at all levels, and until the Federal government decriminalizes it there will be conflict. In my state I can now legally get medical marijuana but there are few doctors willing to prescribe it until it becomes less muddy federally. And I can still get fired from my job for using regardless of legality.






Thank god I am oblivious to the opinions of others while caught in the blinding splendor of my own cleverness.

Guess what they are judging at this years state fair in Oregon? Pot plants! Ahahaha!

The list of breakthroughs in an ever-changing world where cars drive themselves, faces are surgically transplanted and Russian hackers are accused of manipulating the U.S. presidential campaign, add this development: marijuana growers can now compete for blue ribbons in the state fair.

That’s what Oregon officials say will happen at their fair in Salem next month. Besides tastiest apple pie and plumpest pig, pot will be judged for its finer attributes, including color, aroma, leaf structure and lack of pests.

RE: Pot Criminalization: Up in Smoke?

The DEA is blowing smoke up our assess, in my view.

[Image: MedicalMarijuanaSignInLALaurieAvocadoWik...ommons.jpg]

It has finished its investigation into whether to reclassify marijuana out of Class I category and ruled against doing so. Marijuana will remain classified as one of the most dangerous drugs with no medical use.

So...marijuana remains in the same classification as heroin and LSD, which are deemed more harmful than alcohol, tobacco, opium, cocaine, and morphine.

Such bullshit -- there's definitely medical use for marijuana. And, in my opinion, it's a million times less dangerous than prescribing addictive pharmaceuticals which, as of last year, led to more overdose deaths than drunk driving deaths annually.

'People can argue about the pluses and minuses of marijuana, but everyone knows it's not a killer drug like heroin,' Senator Bernie Sanders tweeted after the news emerged on Thursday.

The US government has poured millions into researching the drug, and a number of papers have concluded that CBD - an active ingredient in marijuana - can aid treatment of ailments from anxiety to cancer.

But that momentum has been stunted by the DEA's conclusion, which cites scientific evidence purportedly showing no real medical value.

The DEA said it plans to make it easier for researchers to study marijuana's possible medical benefits by expanding the number of entities that can legally grow marijuana for research purposes. Currently only researchers at the University of Missouri are allowed to grow marijuana, as part of a contract with the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

======================

I'm all for more government research, but there's already tons of medical and scientific research which justifies legalizing medicinal marijuana and millions of American have first-hand experience proving so. Even if the DEA and government don't want to legalize or decriminalize marijuana for recreational use, medicinal marijuana should be legalized federally, in my opinion.

I think that having the DEA investigate and make the ruling is a conflict of interest -- lowering the classification could be viewed by the DEA as a 'slippery slope" which would lead to the federal legalization of medicinal weed and possible federal legalization (or at least decriminalization) of recreational weed, thereby reducing the charter of the DEA and reducing the occupancy at for-profit private prisons.

I just read that today in prepared remarks Jeff Sessions said, marijuana causes life wrecking dependency that's only slightly less awful than heroin.

*sigh*
