Glad to know that. I was misinformed evidently. I rest better with the knowledge the Mob never ran Vegas, or legal prostitution in Nevada. Never used legit businesses as fronts for nefarious activities.👌


Legal pot sales are a cash only business and the perfect vehicle for money laundering. Strip clubs, street drugs and legal pot sales are all controlled by OC. Every tax payer in America is a victim of these victimless activities.

Hemp was grown in WV during WWII. Then stopped.
It grows wild along parts of the South Branch of the Potomac to this day.
Spread by high water. Looks like Mary Jane, they claim you would get sick before you got high smoking it. Not sure now, but 20 years ago, doing
anything at all with it was illegal.

I read a blurb way long time ago about some freaky people harvesting hemp cannabis in a midwestern state where it was once cultivated. Apparently feral hemp was doing very well on its own. Seems these folks were strangers and thought they’d hit the mother lode. They were charged and found guilty of Destruction of Wildlife Habitat. IIRC hemp was a beneficial plant for feeding and nesting birds including pheasant.

just look at Oregon and several other states to see what a roaring success Dope Sales are and its contribution to our society...

I've always been against illegal drugs and always will be... it provides nothing to society and at the same time is a major drain on society by most of its users/ smokers, etc.

but all government bureaucrats think about is taxing things... giving them more and more of the public's money, and more and more control over every day life to get that money.... well you M.F. bureaucrats, there is only 100 pennies in a dollar, and always will be only a 100 pennies in a dollar..
but politicians still think that more and more of those pennies should all belong to them....

I'm against ALL of this Bullschidt....

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.

Better than half the people you know are drinkers or pot smokers.

Some are both.

Bullshit. How come the pot smokers on here (if there are any) aren't willing to admit it?

Its use should be strongly discouraged and it should remain regulated and perhaps be regulated more than it is.

And why the "war on drugs" is never going to end is because there will always be "Revenuers" to enforce the tax laws. Just look at the sheer amount of money spent by our dear friends who enforce taxes on alcohol, tobacco, firearms, and the methods they go to.

Growing it in your backyard will be "legal", but if you "share" and don't pay your taxes on it, they will penalize you.

Absolutely no difference than making beer & wine or running a still in your house. There is a tax scheme to control it and plenty of folks to enforce it. They just choose not to "investigate" those who are producing small batches. If you were to start sharing your bounty, someone with a chip on their shoulder will dime you out and you get a visit from the tax boys.

Federal excise tax amounts on alcohol-containing beverages is based on the amount of actual alcohol present, thus beer has a lower tax per ounce than whiskey. I wonder if some bright(?) individual will do the same in regards to THC levels in commercial products?
Who knows what schemes they have in mind, but you can bet it isn't in your best interest.

Personally, I think this is a move to garner more votes for Democrats and allow multi-million dollar investments in the weed business by Congress-critters before anyone else. There's billions to be made and those leeches get first shot at it.

Folks are going to drink, use dope, use tobacco, or any other physiologically altering substance no matter what is legal or illegal.

Just my $0.02,

Ed

Had a friend in SoCal who had relatives in Kansas or some state near there.

Used to drive his VW Bug there, fill up a couple of big plastic trash bags with "ditch weed" , bring it back, dry it out, bag it up, sell it to the sailors and marines at the beach that just got out of boot camp. Late 60's/Early 70's. Them fellas had never seen marijuana...........................but they found out hemp smoking would give you a good......................headache.
