I don’t know ask one?
Wow you are so clever,look at me look at me I call them names do you think I’m cool now?
Yes, in point of fact. There is nothing inherently illegal, it has to be legislated so.
We already have more people incarcerated than most countries, we don’t need more, they just become worse.
Or maybe treat marijuana like cigarettes? Even after marijuana was legalized the underground sales that went on around us was staggering in the little town in Colorado. And then the marijuana wasnt good enough so in came heroin and tar. A parole officer out there told us thats what happened. Got out sold our house.
Then they need to change the law. Building a bunch of businesses off of the legal ground offered by a fricking letter signed by the “king” was a stupid thing to do.
The WeedWeakling movement is the furthest thing from promoting the general welfare. Instead, it only benefits the PotPimps™ and the taxers. It weakens and burdens everyone else.
The WeedWeakling movement promotes the specific welfare of the few against the general welfare of the country.
Sorry I’m not a pearl clutching dinosaur like you. I’m Less concerned that the citizens of CA voted to make a state law making pot legal than the state just arbitrarily decided to ignore immigration law.
But what was it like to be involved in the temperance movement?
Sessions pushing the system into its proper realm - despite those who are upset with him.

I'm Curious do dinosaurs know when they ate dinosaurs?
I guess being called a “dinosaur” is fair, I did say that using the legal authority of a letter was “stupid,” which it is BTW, though there was probably a less blunt way to put that. The immigration law thing is similar to the pot thing. We have laws because that is the most equitable and sane way of handling these issues that we’ve got.
It seems likely that either the Congress will have to address the pot issue or else a SCOTUS decision will do so. The California-ing of the whole rest of the country by the Obama administration only served to devastate the economy of the rest of the country and to p*ss lots of people off.
Personally, I have lobbied (successfully) for the decriminalization of pot. Basically, the only way people will be arrested locally is if they make a total nuisance of themselves. There are no large-scale pot growing enterprises to attract Federal scrutiny, and it would be a costly waste of Federal resources to come into our community and start chasing down all of our local stoners. I mean, if they want to donate law enforcement services to my community, I’m sure the local taxpayers won’t complain, but it seems like a no-win for the Feds ;)
Alternate title: Union Members Back Job Security Through ‘Make Work’ Program.
Does pot advocate edzo know know that George Soros bankrolled everything mentioned in that post?
The cops can confiscate cash and property from innocent citizens through asset forfeiture under the guise of enforcing the drug laws. Can’t have anything interfere with that.
I agree, I think it should be a state issue and the feds have bigger fish to fry, also I don’t remember any of the muliple posts on FR for the last year against talking about how crummy a job sessions was doing having any comments about how they wished he would go after California and Colorado for legal weed, Jeff must be thrilled with all the freepers that are apparently back in bed with Jeffy.
Just go to democrat underground replace “Soros” with “Koch brothers” in all your posts and you’ll fit right In With all those conspiracy nutjobs.
interesting that the bureaucrats who advocate for the war on drugs never have their motives questioned in the media.
The Union officials and their ilk would be out of a cushy gig if drugs were decriminalized.
To repeat - the drug war has not reduced drug additiction one tiny bit.
