Do you have a link to the video of the high-speed chase?
If booze is legal I see no reason for marijuana not to be. We’ve wasted tens of billions trying to fight pot and have done nothing to stomp out its use.
I take no drugs, but I must agree that anti-marijuana laws and their enforcement seem to be stupid and costly examples of government meddling in the private lives of citizens.
And I would guess that cocaine would be next on your list of drugs to exclude because of the billions spent trying to keep this drug out of our hands?
“...government meddling in the private lives of citizens.”
I know a woman who smoked that crap the entire time she was pregnant. The cost was a young girls life became pretty messed up. Busted at age 11 for drugs. Still can’t shake the drugs at 33. It’s very sad.
Yeah, I disagree with you.
It would allow the State Liquor stores to cultivate and sell pot.
I don’t think i’d go that far but I really don’t see how booze is legal and pot isn’t. If anything booze is the more dangerous drug.
LOL @ gardenining/topic
So, drug wise, were is your cut off point if pot is legalized, what is the next drug to be legalized (and if pot is legalized, there will be a next drug)? To reiterate, we all know to well that if pot is legalize, some other drug will be next on the list of.
Wow, they found some plants that some people somewhere decided we can’t have. Neat.
ask children of marijuana users if their parents are better parents when they are high?
Exactly how did they “nab” the plants? Were the plants fleeing, running away, making a break in a car or helicopter?
How do you “nab” a plant?
“nab (n²b) tr.v. nabbed, nab·bing, nabs. Informal. 1. To seize (a fugitive or wrongdoer); arrest. 2. To grab; snatch. [Perhaps variant of dialectal nap, to seize, probably of Scandinavian origin.] —nabber n.”
Please excuse me for being persnickety.
“per·snick·e·ty (p r-sn¹k¹-t¶) adj. 1.a. Overparticular about trivial details; fastidious. b. Snobbish; pretentious. 2. Requiring strict attention to detail; demanding: a persnickety job. [Alteration of pernickety. See PERNICKETY.]”
Freedom : Freedom requires courage, it is better than a fear of plants, and much better than a lust for government power.
“ask children of marijuana users if their parents are better parents when they are high?”
Ask Americans if the government owns their children.
Basically, the law should just state that if a drug is fun to take, it should be illegal. That’s what it’s all about. We’re opposed to people having fun taking drugs. Alcohol, okay. Drugs, no. I’m right, aren’t I? Can you think of any drugs that are fun to take that aren’t illegal?
How would they know? It’s not like they’d have something to compare to.
It’s not about whether or not marijuana should be illegal.
THEY ARE REMOVING SOME OF THE POWER FROM THESE HORRIBLE ILLEGAL THUGS! I say yay!
