Simply de-criminalizing weed was too easy. They had to find a way to industrialize and tax it.

The crane operator we used years ago to set our trusses was always stoned. I remember sitting on top plate of wall 3 stories high, and ducking from the incoming trusses. Dude was so stoned he nearly took my head off a couple times. Machinery & weed don't mix. I don't care if they legalize it or not. Pills & booze are more harmful in my opinion. To each their own.

The 'why'

Correct. And what happens legal stuff gets to expensive?

fuggin revenuers.

gonna hafta find someone to change some words and update this song:



lt,

you been in TX for awhile? No bootleggin goin on in dry town and counties? All booze sales and imbibing was on the up and up, right?

Bet if you lived or worked in a dry area you knew a few folks that broke some rules, maybe even a judge or cop?

Maybe, if the Goobermint kept their grubby paws off it, at least to a minimum (1% would likely bring in $ Billions) the legal stuff wouldn't get too expensive?

Hello black market.



What this really means is that DC scum like Schumer have found a way to make big business profit bigly from this and squash the little guys already there. Same old DC horseshit.

Don't partake myself nowadays either. But, I'm a child of the sixties and seventies and know plenty of Boomers who are democrat single agenda voters because of all the laws against marijuana. Other than this, they would vote Republican probably.

They also must have come to some arrangement with their Cartel buddies that will benefit both.

In places where it is legal, they are already seeing marijuana getting stronger and stronger, as people get desensitized and need ever stronger hits. Some of it is now so concentrated that if a first-timer tried it, he could die. Hospitals are reporting a sharp rise in MJ overdoses. People who now smoke it every day have brain damage. Also, just as predicted, highway accidents and death rates are soaring in those states.

That whole "it's harmless and non-addicting" line is crap.

Lot of not so in that. Not trying to glorify weed but issues with potency are usually because someone added a little something (they called it Illy here adding formaldehyde or even fentanyl). And those adding it are selling to the black community. Also seen some fake weed being sold that has god knows what in it. I put 30 years in a career fire department and my son is a paramedic and no one here in Connecticut are seeing that. Flame on.

Colorado is seeing it. That is increased THC not the things you mentioned and young people are dying.

I agree and the same applies to alcohol. Yet many people can and do handle alcohol just fine, many on a daily basis. So where do you draw the line as far as what's illegal? I've met a few people who can't drink alcohol, so they partake in the devil's weed. Is it your call to make their choice illegal?

As far as people dying, you read about alcohol poisoning cases all the time. Frat boy initiation gone wrong, skid row bum found in the gutter and so forth.

I've never read about a case of marijuana poisoning, although I'm sure it happens.

I will not argue that alcohol is fine while marijuana is not. But the fact is that alcohol has been legal for a very long time, and marijuana has not. There is no need to legalize something else that causes so many societal problems.

According to the article I read, "normal" marijuana contains something like 2% THC. The stuff that growers have now developed can have as much as 98%. I'll have to find that article to be sure of those numbers, but they're close.
