Seriously, its a win win!
You leglize it and there will still be laws, such as only so much (i.e., DUI) and they will tax it, maybe get us out of debt, and then it will cause ALOT of people to have to get jobs, because the stuff wont sell for as much money on the street as it does while it is illegal...

When do ya think the sheriffs will go over to Bell Hil Road and check out the pot growing over in that area. You would never believe who is doing this, these are prominent people trying to make a buck.

They try to make it out like they weren't supposed to have those guns. That is so lame.
and the grass? We voted that stuff legal.
It is still "we the people" isn't it?
because if it is not, the US. Constitution has specific instructions within her text on what to do in that happenstance.
Legalize it

No, No Justice, it will not disrupt the flow of anything except money spent locally. I'm with you Ronin, comforting to know we already have the set of instructions. It's about the Benjamins, that is the only reason the county is now trying to figure out what to do about the dispensaries. Cross the government's palm with enough silver and all problems are solvable.

it's quite sad how the law enforcement try their best to demonize decent people. i know them personally, and it is heartbreaking to see more victims of failed policy and overzealous government intrusion

It's accurate the Lepp was convicted of cultivating more that 1,000 marijuana plants. What's left out is that the number was closer to 32,500 plants. Now people have the facts, not just how the press reports it.

I don't use marijuana, but I have friends who do. What about the companies who manufacture alcoholic beverages and tobacco products. They're responsible for way more death and destruction than marijuana, don't you think? Shouldn't we have laws that prohibit their sale and distribution, or should we keep them legal, tax them and use some of those funds to educate people about their ills. The sooner we get past the "reefer madness" mentality and take as much of the criminal aspect out of the marijuana market, the sooner we'll take the big profit out of the picture. That's where the crime and violence is rooted. No pun intended. We need to control pot the same way we control alcohol and tobacco, which is not very well. Do we keep alcohol and tobacco out of kids hands? No. Will we be able to keep pot out of kids hands? No. We will need to criminalize it with minors the same way we criminalize underage drinking and smoking. In the process we can humanize medical dispensaries, and let the adult social pot smokers have at it just like we let the boozers do. End of millions of wasted tax dollars locating pot, arresting, and prosecuting people for their pot consumption.

How do you know this? Where was it documented? I'm confident he was growing well beyond the medicinal level, but will we get people like Eddy to stop unless we take big profit incentive out of the picture? I don't think so.

Wow & wisenfiver PLEASE google THC/cancer and go to www.phoenixtears.ca .... there is a CURE for cancer and many other diseases..if you think for one minute that God has put this wonderful plant on this earth for NO GOOD REASON..you have not done your home work. The Cannabis Hemp Plant is THEE MOST IMPORTANT PLANT on this PLANET! everything we have been told about this plant in the last 80 years by our Government is a LIE. And once you open your mind and start to research what this [plant is all about..you will agree with me. I too was once like you..but once I started to look into this DEVIL PLANT, I was SHOCKED at to what level our government has lied to us all in the name of MONEY. It makes me ILL knowing the truth...but you will never shut me up on this issue. The TRUTH has set me FREE. The Hemp Plant is the ANSWER to many questions..Food Fuel and Medicine to name only a few...

The marijuana is not medical unless the patient's symptoms are mental. Obviously Lake County is mental...
