It can only hurt one party if you get on the unpopular side of an issue.
Time to stop wasting our tax dollars and law enforcement plus prison costs on pot.
It seems the banking issue is going to worked out soon enough
The federal government is working to make it easier for money generated by state-approved marijuana businesses to enter the financial system.
Wow, this means that state pot laws could inadvertently end the Fed.... Or force a national debate to change the federal laws in then banking industry.
Those who want to continue to be a nanny or are afraid their funding will be cut will fight this hard.
The will of the people is little concern for them.
Yep. And yet the (R)s in this state are just playing right into it.
Unreal. But also pretty typical. Why let a good wedge issue go to waste for the sake of sane policy. It's why I find myself thinking the New World Order/Conspiracy crew isn't as crazy as some think. I mean, how else can you explain the fixation (by both parties) on dog-and-pony shows like this?
I didn't see the assumptions in the post, that you cite. "Everyone ?"
Didn't see that.
And yes - shocker - people fire one up, to achieve intoxication. Call it buzz, call it high, call it whatever, that's what it's for.
Sorry to necropost on this thread, but I thought this memo that just came to light might be of interest to folks.
And if Crist wins because of it, the (R)s will have nobody to blame but themselves. The (D)'s created the wedge issue and the (R)s stepped right in and played their role like a bunch of mindless lemmings.
I know a lot of conservatives (Tea Party) that agree with medical MJ.
Everything after "I think...," was an "assumption." More polite, I felt, than telling him he was pulling his data from his rear.
True, he didn't specify "everyone," just the vague "people."
I'm aware of pot's intended use. Same as liquor and any number of pharmaceuticals.
Pot is a far less destructive drug than alcohol.
what about recreational use?
I won't discuss experience, but will say that I have known plenty of folk who fire one up before going to work, or in the morning just to get the day started, whether for work or school . . . or 'effing off.
I have known fewer alcoholics who start the day knocking back a couple. But they are out there too.
I would say that there are more a.m. doobie doers than breakfast of champions professional drinkers. But that's just my anecdotal math.
No assumptions, either.
change of heart. i don't agree. i think there are lots and lots of alcoholics drinking before and during work (flask, anyone?) hence "AA"
also: oddly enough, around friends, one is more likely to admit to a morning puff, than a shot of whisky in your coffee. can't explain the phenomenon.
i know I have to HAVE coffee...in the a.m., and sometimes afternoon. i can't sit down to 'relax' until the day is done. and i'm telling you: i'm pretty sure i reflect Most of Us.
That says more about the crowd you hang around with than anything. According to SAMHSA there are 7.6 million Americans who use marijuana daily, not have a problem necessarily, just use marijuana daily. There are 18 million Americans who are alcoholics, not just drink alcohol daily, but have a problem. Yet somehow you know more people who start their day off with a joint than start their day off with a drink? Like I said, strange crowd you keep company with.
Operative phrase from referent post: "have known."
And really, there is no distinction in people "using marijuana daily" from people "drinking alcohol daily", who allegedly don't have a problem with either. I would say both groups actually have a problem with both, or an underlying problem with something.
So you used to hang out with a bunch of stoners? Either ways it says more about the people you know (or knew) than it does about the number of people who have problems with alcohol vs. marijuana.
And my wife has a glass of wine every night - has a great job, a good life, and plenty of friends and family. If that daily glass of wine is somehow a problem, I fail to see it.
I don't see how this would have any impact on the Federal Reserve.
