Re: “Marijuana Like Alcohol?

Wow. - The prohibitionists are addicted to criminalizing good citizens who prefer near harmless marijuana over addictive, very harmful alcohol. -- Such ugly bigotry.

Science and widespread experience have shown marijuana has no significant harms. -- Smart employers of the future will prefer their employees consume near harmless marijuana, rather than addictive, very harmful, violence inducing, traffic carnage fueling, hangover-producing alcohol.

End the fraudulent, federal, marijuana prohibition with two clicks!

Re: “GOP Lawmakers Want to Amend Medical Marijuana Act, Make It Harder for Patients to Access Medication

>>>"it would be bad for the industry."

Only in your warped, myopia. - But most importantly, marijuana reform is NOT about the growers and sellers. It's about freeing consumers - period. - When you lose track of that truth, you become just another prohibitionist.

Logic dictates the end-game of marijuana sales will be marijuana sold wherever beer and wine are, probably behind the counter next to the Marlboroughs. The different forms the "industry" takes until that day are insignificant and irrelevant. - Consumer freedom trumps everything.

Re: “GOP Lawmakers Want to Amend Medical Marijuana Act, Make It Harder for Patients to Access Medication

>>>"In this proposed there are just to many rules to be written to know what you are voting for. This is a power grab by a few and Law enforcement to keep the current in place with a layover of new prohibition. "

Simply nonsense. I have been to Washington state, which is easily the worst legalization, and would be worse than Arizona's. - Consumers there are THRILLED with their new freedom and certainly don't feel they have another prohibition. - They are changing the worst parts and will soon have legal home grows. - Marijuana reform is about ending the war on consumers - period. - The temporary growing arrangements are unimportant, and will evolve rapidly into a national market after legalization.

@carpet bager - Your posts were somewhat convoluted. - Are you saying you would prefer the present prohibition over some specific form of legalization you apparently have some problem with? - Sorry, but that doesn't make sense. - Please clarify.

The big "problem" some are having with medical marijuana is some people will use it "recreationally." This is better called "personal" use. Apparently, creative professions benefit from some cannabis inspiration.

Science, and widespread experience, have shown marijuana is not addictive and has no significant harms for adults. No one has ever died from consuming marijuana. In that respect, it's safer than aspirin, coffee and peanuts!

Colorado, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska have already crossed over from the chaos to enlightenment, forming the four Free States. Their skies haven't fallen. - California and some others will join them in November. That will bring the collapse of the crumbling fraud of federal marijuana prohibition, as soon as 2017.

Polls show a growing majority of Americans want to end the insane war on marijuana consumers. - The sooner all accept this reality and stop the destructive witch-hunt, the less pain (and expense) there will be.

Re: “Shame and Mary Jane

Take heart, Mr. Smith. The counter-productive fraud of marijuana prohibition is now going down in flames. I'm sure it will be much easier to discuss with your mother once that evil, shame-producing machine is smashed.

Whatever you say, or don't say, to your mother - know in yourself that since this country celebrates addictive, FAR more harmful alcohol (Napa Valley, countless beer and wine festivals, etc.), you can be proud you prefer a natural, unprocessed plant that is very near harmless.

Re: “Breaking Down the Bust

>>>"too bad Oregon is soooo cold."

No problem. Oregon, Colorado and Washington all have re-legalization intiatives on the ballot for November. If just ONE passes, it will cause the collapse of the shaky marijuana prohibition - nationwide!

So, call everyone you know who lives in one of those states and ask them to vote YES. Then, pick a state and send money to their movement. - Freedom is on the way!
