Recreational weed becomes legal here July 1. I know a guy in Colorado who was living paycheck to paycheck who now has a store that grosses 3 million a year. Image the tax revenue there. I truly believe that weed is safer for you then alcohol. We saw the lines in Colorado and Washington when weed became legal there. The federal government should legalize it. They've seemed to tax everything else (including alcohol and prescription drugs) so why not weed. I don't know why it's not already legal on a federal level. I don't even smoke weed because I work in aerospace and it's forbidden (plus I get drug tested). I know Amsterdam is not a good comparison with most US cities but legalization hasn't seemed to have a negative effect there. Just my 2 cents.

Imagine getting high on second hand smoke everywhere you go. Alcohol use per person does not affect others within that person's perimeter. How do you tell your neighbor to quit lighting up everyday so you and your kid can spend time in your own backyard? My castle vs. his. Do I fart his way to send a message? I guess this goes back a long way, looking for gold and ending up creating a tobacco industry. Everyman fighting for his shot at Jamestown. Can you grow it, or just sell it? How are the cartels going to take to all this decriminization? You want tax revenue? Working visas for migrant workers. Pay them decent wage, and collect income tax. Ignoring America's ghost class, our "untouchables," and believing getting the whole country high after so many years dismantling big tabacco, is not the sort of moral direction I would think would be good for the future. And speaking of Amsterdam, I keep hearing how conservative of a place it really is, that America's take on weed culture is more intense, a way of life sort of thing. I can't imagine evenings outside in my own yard with my family smelling that shit every time we would be out there, and knowing that everyone around us has all the right in the world to do so. Folks need to think this through. Thanks to my neighbor, it's already a bad trip for me[frown]

All I know is when I was in Colorado a few weeks back I had a great time, the weed is kept on the downlow pretty much in public, people were great, food and drink was great, smoke was great. All in all the best trip in a long time. I will be more than happy to go back and contribute to the local economy. Fine weed is no different than fine wine.

cbd's cause cancer cells to commit suicide.......    holy shit, crazy stuff huh Johnny, I personally like the high and the pain relief it brings

sounds like you got a shitty neighbor McKinski, I smoke outside about 50% of the time, but I take one hit or two at the most if it is a joint........   my neighbor has never said anything and he isn't home much, if he was to mention it I would go out of my way to make sure he never smelled anything

there aren't any lines to get weed here in WA, the prices are too high currently, I can get it from a medicinal dispensary in OR for much cheaper not to mention its the best available while the stuff in the stores up here is just "decent"

This should take the place of all tobacco in every regard, RJ Reynolds, Phillip Morris, etc... should all be removed from the face of the earth, poisoning the public deliberately with over a hundred and seventy different carcinogenic substances added to make it more addictive and harmful...
WEED is the much safer alternative to both tobacco and alcohol but the evil corrupt and dysfunctional brain dead politician's are too stuck up each other's asshole's do do anything about it...a THOUSAND KNIVES FOR A THOUSAND LIES.......

Not sure has been addressed or discussed in this forum....
And discussed with an attorney and very liberal judge in San Diego this weekend.
This judge also supports a very active "drug style rehab" program. Not a private make money program....
Has about a 35% total kick the habit success was semi his numbers.... Which is good...

GIVEN THE POWERFUL MIND NUMBING CAPABLILITES OF ALL THE
new strains of Marijauana. the vast selection. How can todays kids 16-28, not be impaired smoking it
and espcially if they driving or similar?....
(We realize you should be 21, etc, etc... But life is what it is. AND weed is not 1970s weed anymore...
Hell I could not talk couple years ago via some stuff I smoked with guys at a rugby match!!!!!)...

ANOTHER CONCERN the judge pointed out, was ingestable marijuana products
are not regulated and those can almost produce a hallucnagenic style high.....

WAS JUST A DISCUSSION. Nothing of major significance or solution solving thought process going on (LOL).....
We all would rather see it legal/regulated and we agree that generally we have not heard of any major problems
via the now legal colorado and washington. As to kids/anyone driving high and killing people like alcohol can and does....
Was just a breakfast conversation....
David
P.S. Maybe we are wimps as to the intoxication, as we rarely/never smoke anymore.
       This adult thing with careers, kids, mortgages, building for retirement & trying not to to get divorced, is killing us LOL....

yup it is getting better every day, but enjoying responcibly is the key, i personally think this is great what is going on. and that is coming from someone who did alot of babysitting of adults in another life. as to the divorce thing i can say that little trip to colorado saved my marriage ( at least for the time being ) and she was my designated driver. when it comes to kids i totally agree, do everything you can to keep it out of their hands until they are at least 18 and educate them, if you party like a rock star to much you will crash like one.
the game is changing and i never thought i would see the day that it was legal in any form let alone be accepted by the mainstream public,
so.
play by the rules we have and enjoy resoncibly if that happens to be your thing

But it would be ok for your neighbor to sit out back & enjoy a cigar or smoke cigarettes, because that's his right? The claims of you or your kids getting buzzed from second hand smoke from your neighbors yard are asinine, you need to do some more research on that bud. But in your mind it's ok for your neighbor or anyone for that matter to finish off a bottle of Jack Daniels then get behind the wheel of a car and mistake your driveway for his, and accidentally run your kids over playing (God forbid)? It's a plant that's been around since the beginning of time, and used in every culture as a medicine, a form of healing, a textile, etc. On the other hand tobacco & alcohol is 1000% more addictive & deadly than marijuana. There have been no known deaths linked to marijuana consumption, does alcohol or tobacco have the healing effects on cancer, epileptic seizures, brain tumors, ALS, and many other diseases? No, it only causes many of them.

Over 50 million people in the USA smoke marijuana on a regular basis. Since it's legalization in Colorado, in 1 year it's brought in over $70 million in tax money to fix roads, build schools not prisons, and help the state. Multiply that by 50 and the USA will be out of it's 2 TRILLION dollar deficit in a few short years. I don't drink alcohol, except for maybe some nice wine, I've been hit by 2 drunk drivers in my lifetime and people are killed every few minutes by a drunk driver, but the alcohol industry has too much money for it ever to be banned, same with the tobacco industry. I assume you don't smoke cigarettes, and have taught your children the wrongs of doing so, do the same thing with marijuana if you choose. But I guaranty you that if one of your children had 50 epileptic seizures a day and CBD oil (a root derivative of the marijuana plant) was the one thing that controlled his/her seizures, your tone would be quite different. 

Education is the key to responsible marijuana use when it becomes legal wherever you live, and believe me, it will become legal. A 20 Billion dollar industry with a 10% tax is too much for this country to pass up.
