Seems to me the only people who are seriously investing in anti-marijuana legalization are the ones who benefit by it being illegal. Just like bootleggers hated to see prohibition end. Like they say: "Follow the money".

Deb and Ed M have the right approach. MEDICAL with CBD... does not have much (or any) of the THC....found in RECREATIONAL spliff.

I am in favor of banning THC for anyone under 21....as their brains are not yet developed.

We give our 15 y/o dog CBD for her bad knee, bad hip and arthritis. Works fine.

Well with the Keebler Elf coming out and saying he is on the warpath of no pot, who knows what will happen.

Well. Colorado reports a major drop in crimes. Drug overdose and a bunch of other issues since they made Pot legal.


Please state your sources. If you ask business owners along the 16th Street (outdoor) Mall in Denver or residences and business in Durango for example they will tell just the opposite. There have been increases in homeless and indigent transients into the state since legalization. And recent reports have shown an increase in pot related vehicular accidents.

Fs in Colorado springs say when recreation pot became legal the homeless shelters filled up and beggars on the street corners increased. One thing we noticed about it was that the street corners are all young people and as we drove around we noticed that they changed out frequently. They seemed to be out in numbers and sometimes you could recognize the people that had been on the corner the previous time we went through that intersection would be standing back and different ones close to traffic. Noticeable absence of the older kind of raggedly dressed usually seen at the corners. I saw absolutely nothing that would make me believe there was any good in makeing pot legal.

It might as well be taxed, the number of people using it would stun most people that don't.
Poll numbers are all over the place but most report that more than 50% support legalization. Like everything else, follow the money.

I've always felt that marijuana caused much fewer problems than alcohol. I've never seen a bar fight caused by an overindulgence in marijuana. Most people don't smoke and drive, most likely caused by the fact they can't remember where they parked their car. [emoticon] However obesity could be an issue, brought on by the "munchies".

At least marijuana isn't physically addictive which cannot be said of opioids, which doctors can legally prescribe for any number of reasons, some necessary and some not so much, and get people into serious usage problems.

Used to be a Federal Tax on MJ.. It was repealed back in the 70-s and replaced with an "Illegal" as I recall.

As I have said before. I still straddle the fence on this issue, Facts I can post. opinions .. I omit.
