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.

Wreck-creational pot. Wreck-creational heroin. Because according to the social liberals, the freeflow of drugs is the ultimate fulfilmemt of the Constitution and the only reason the Constitution was ever enacted in the first place.

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 wasn’t good enough so in came heroin and tar. A parole officer out there told us that’s 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.

And Team Pothead is not a special interest. Wrong.

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?

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 ;)

Bingo!

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.

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.
