• “Do you think the use of marijuana should be made legal?” provides very limited value. What every major reform group is pushing for legal marijuana to be restricted to adults, tightly regulated, and taxed.

    I’m just shaking my head. “Limited Value” ???? Most of these so called reform groups seem to be working more for the government than the people.

    In the real world I don’t see many people wanting it to be “tightly regulated” and heavily taxed regardless of your polls.

    The issue is likely polling people who do not smoke pot and will never smoke.

    Its much the same as cigarette legislation. You have people who don’t smoke offering opinions on how tobacco should be taxed and used. People who never go to bars deciding people cant smoke in bars.

    The black market is pretty safe for the next 50 years IMO

    i think you may have misread Arkansas entirely.

    A lot of money was poured in by the industry. If you could have stores anywhere then you wouldn’t have to drive miles to ABC Liquor and pay their prices. There would competition.

    which is why a lot of what Jon posts about is funny to me. People act like there is no MJ industry and we are starting this all from scratch and it needs a lot of thought and study and committees and hearings

    I forsee a future where we have to prove where we bought the weed, oops you don’t have the packaging with the tax stamp…..

    or the absurdity of some of the laws… you can have X amount of weed or this many plants or this many plants but they can only be a certain size.

    So maybe in Hooterville I can have an ounce but then I drive into Pixely and its 1/2 an ounce or a joint.

    Most urban police have better things to deal with and having pot isn’t really a big deal now unless you are being charged with something else… move out into the suburbs and you have cops who have nothing better to deal with than if your push scooter is street legal

    why cant I just vote from my phone?

  • well, at this point I’m pretty sure the movement is basically run by the DLC or something.

    Their concern is not for OUR rights but rather how much $$$ the government can suck from us.

  • Maybe the “candidates” didn’t connect with the issues. Or the issues were not presented in a partisan way. It was just the minimum wage, not the Dem plan to raise min wage

  • Don’t forget Denton, Tx outlawing fracking. This is actually major considering who owns a good deal of the land North of DFW.

    (trivia tangent: in the event of nuclear holocaust, Denton could possibly become the new capital of the US)

    you seem to think she was campaigning for them, she was just using them to get herself out there. gives her an excuse to campaign without campaigning. Figure out what she wants to “listen” to or “evolve” on.

    too many people vote “straight” party. wish it were removed from ballots. There are many races that there aren’t both Dems/Repubs. Judges, Other state officials, local offices

    Like on my ballot There was a choice several times for a Rep/Lib or Rep/Green or Rep/Lib/Green because the Dems just couldn’t be bothered to run anyone.

    I cant put my finger on but something just doesn’t smell right to me. And I am by no means a Party Person.

    Any way…. Can they dump Debbie now? I mean granted Crist was a wishy washy likely closeted gay republican but really, if Debbie cant even deliver florida against Rick Scott then what good is she

    she is easy to translate. Just take catch phrases from the 90s and repeat often.

    As a bonus, take a shot every time a Clinton says “work hard and play by the rules”

    The democrats have NO ONE…. NO ONE!. Seriously. Lets say Mrs Clinton tragically died in a plane crash returning from a celebration for the second term of Republican Gov, Charlie Crist… who do they have in 2016?? Who??? 2020??? Aside from dredging up some more boomers, who is there. More or less you only options [...]

  • The editorial goes on to say that Netanyahu is going forward with the settlements because he is scared of internal political opposition from the right wing

    they don’t get it either, its a land grab. so when the US finally drops them and the rest of the world demands they have actual borders, they’ll get to keep all the land they have settlers on.

  • believe it or not there is a very obscure law in my state about how much porn you can own.

    but really my issue is the amount you can purchase at one time. I normally used to by 1-2 ounces at a time before the dealers turned into rip off artists and doubled and tripled their prices.

    If I had my druthers I would buy a QP or even a 1/2 pound at a time much like you might buy a years worth of toilet paper at SAM’s

  • 3. A small limit on non-resident purchases

    really, jon… the horse is already out of that barn. Where I live there are dealers who specialize in Colorado weed. Its already all over. Its more of a novelty at the moment and a bit more expensive but some people like the fact that its labeled and you can easily research the name to know what you are buying, what you liked and want to buy again.

    Frankly I could right a bill in one sentence –

    “The production, sale of, possession and consumption of marijuana is legal”

    The problem in Washington is essentially an artificial scarcity of supply that allows the few licensed growers to actually charge more for their product grown risk free than growers who risk hard prison time to grow

    they might want to have look see in the National Parks. I think they might find the State already has a lot of weed.
