Weed

I wonder (because I am always wondering about stuff) if this recent republican shift in power isn't going to mean that the recent legalizations in local states marijuana laws won't be crushed by the Fed.

I don't really care either way, but it's something to think about.

On the flip side, there could be a lot of bongs for me to make and for you to repair Scott

I'm pretty sure weed is the least of their worries.....

it's ridiculous to consider because it's a major tax surplus , Jobs, opiod drug control
... plus it's totally against the will of the VOTERS.

Gina is doing her best to get this on the ballot in RI for Nov.'17 for retail sales before the exodus to Mass to buy in '18.She was completely opposed to legalization until MA passed it,$$$ and Dems go together like bacon and eggs or in this case the munchies and Doritos.

It will eventually become legal nationwide.The hypocrisy of current govt has been exposed,how can such a deadly drug like alcohol be legal nationwide and in comparison a much more benign drug like weed be illegal?

It will be discussed in CT very very soon.

Most major medical groups like the AMA have historically been opposed to legalization. I presume they know a thing or two.

The AMA knows something?Are you effing kidding me?

Outside of heroin the most deadly drug on this planet is alcohol,don't see the AMA saying much more than don't drink and drive.

You might actually benefit from a toke or two after work...it won't kill you and you really can stop anytime you want.And most importantly you might actually relax and stop arguing with the liberal moron who frequents this board.

I believe they do.

"You might actually benefit from a toke or two after work"

Pass.

"you might actually relax "

That was funny. My blood pressure is plenty low.

I don't have much of a dog in this fight, I don't partake. But when one medical association after another opposes legalization, I notice. If more doctors start supporting legalization, I'll be all for it.

I don't like the idea of balancing the public budget by hurting people.

I have many friends that do it, they are great parents and successful at their jobs. Obviously it doesn't hurt every single person who does it.

I think more states will legalize, I bet CT soon will.

the fact they are going to allow you to grow 6 plants for yourself is going to eliminate a lot of the tax revenue. Why would you pay for something you can grow yourself ?

Look at surfcasters who fish with custom wood lures. Not all of them make their own. I see it as a very similar scenario.
Not everyone is going to grow their own.

Possibly but growing a weed is a lot easier. The amount of people that are into gardening is pretty high.

Why? I don't care if it's legal or not. I just thought this was interesting since I keep hearing that weed is fairly harmless. If anyone using it regularly has these symptoms, maybe they should get it checked and determine the cause. Is that a bad thing?
