Where The War On Pot Will Go To Die
In some states, there's an untenable mismatch between the crime and the time, but does anyone think that potmedical or recreationalwill still be illegal in 10 years?
Now that a majority of Americans54% and climbing, according to Pew Researchbelieve that marijuana should be treated like beer, wine and liquor, its time to ask: where does the war on pot go to die?
What episode will trigger that final skirmish that kicks over the hollowed-out edifice of marijuana prohibition like the Berlin Wall? What will be the final outrage against common sense and common decency that triggers an Arab Spring for weed in these U.S.? Twenty-one states and the District of Columbia already have medical marijuana (with more to come), and full legalization has gained 13 percentage points in just the past five years.
Ironically, whatever ends the war on pot wont happen in Colorado or Washington, which have already legalized recreational pot and have received vague promises from Attorney General Eric Holder that the feds wont bust people and businesses who comply with state laws. Colorado is further along in the retail process than Washington (where pot shops wont open until mid-July), and so far the only problem of note is that the state is raking in 40% more tax revenue than originally projected.

Same place as the 1920's war on alcohol along with all the crime syndicates that go with it.
Now that the majority of the clowns living in this country no longer have to work for a living, I guess they need something to do.
It won't be legal in all of Texas. We've still got dry counties in Texas where you can't buy alcohol.
Residing in government?
Same in Kansas, last I heard.
Many years ago the sunflower state had an attorney general named Vern Miller who tried to get a court order prohibiting airlines from serving alcohol while in Kansas airspace (!).
Well, I think government is on something a lot stronger than pot: the ever-more concentrated, uncut drug of POWER (with our money).
Does anyone think that tobacco will be illegal ever?
Ten years from now?
Well, America has already become a patheticly zonked-out cesspool of dopeheads and degenerates. An embarrassment to everything it once was. I have strong doubts as to whether the country itself will still be standing in ten years.
“What will be the final outrage against common sense and common decency that triggers an Arab Spring for weed in these U.S.? “
If it wasn’t the time Atlanta cops shot a grandmother in her bed mistakenly and then planted dope on her, it’s hard to imagine what would do it.
It's for the children.
The siren cry of tyrants on the right and the left since time immemorial.
“It’s for the children!”
Where alcohol + pot contribute to a death, pot will be dismissed as a possibility. :(
Love your tag line, btw.
Since there are 10x as many unemployed as homosexuals, and everybody seems to be a homosexual, theft on the grand scale will be the next pestilence.
Back to prostitution, gambling, and corrupt unions?
I flew over Kansas one time. Once we were in KS airspace alcohol was NOT allowed to be served. That was in 1975.
