I agree with you. Never heard about that, neither in my country (belgium), where we can grow two plants, nor in The Netherlands, where pot is illegal but tolerated. But I heard that in some countries where pot is severely repressed, some "weed" in the street are mixed with all sort of unhealthy stuff. I was just hypothesizing reasons why cannabis could be locally a gate way drug, and explaining that if that was the case, the reason would still be only prohibition. But the studies shows that even when illegal, pot is not dangerous, nor is it a gateway product. In fact it is the innocuousness of cannabis which makes it possible to keep it illegal for so long, as prohibition always augment the danger of a product. The guy who got the idea of prohibiting cannabis deserves the Nobel Prize ... in Crime.
Now, most joint *are* for some young people a "gateway" product to an harder drug: tobacco. But again, this is due to prohibition of cannabis, as most young people will laugh at an adult telling them that in a joint the hard (toxic and addictive) drug is tobacco. One of nephew's friend was dead convinced that he was addicted to cannabis, and I told him to try a week with pure cannabis and a week with pure tobacco to test what was the addictive drug, and he realized them that tobacco was the one that hooked him for real indeed.
two plants???
that is it.?

oh well, mabey theyll relax that rule over time.

here in california??

counties are finaly starting to regulate per the request of the state....it took the more republican(rural) counties the longest......16 years.

and some counties dont quite have as big an issue with growing as we do up here in the emerald triagle. so they dont yet have to regulate as much.

until now?? many of them had been hiding behind federal law..

the issue is far from resolved, but we are slowly making progress.

the tenth amendment to our constitution makes clear that matters of personal consuption are to fall under state control.

the federal governemnt wanted more power, so they passed a slew of laws earlier in the twenieth century that consolidated federal power.

federal politicians from both parties(sadly) have done nothing but further empower the federal government.(read bush and obama)

plant numbers in my (humble) opinion are a lousy way to regulate just how much marijuana each patient grows.

with 2 plants?? you can grow a half oz or several lbs.

in cali (because of the ultra high sun index) it could be as much as TEN lbs from two plants!!!

the plant limit counties are imposing dont jibe at all with the state supream court decision, that refers to YOUR doctors discreation.

what else does the government there do to regulate growers???

I think the best way to regulate how much each patient grows, is to stick with canopy sq. footage limits.

they are less ambigious.

in this county, with one acre of land, I am allowed to cultivate a canopy of 100 sq ft.

some counties have imposed wattge limits for indoor grows.

but I think limiting someones electrical usage gets into the area of discrimination.....

they still have to iron out few details like how discriminatory and exculsionary some of the clauses are.

like NO grows wihin 1000 feet of any official place where there are minors. in towns this pretty mucch covers everything.

I think they knew that, and that was their last line of defense.

it will surly be taken to court and struck down.

making people grow in out buildings(for indoors) is exclusionary as well...

not everybody HAS an outbuilding......especially if you live in an apt.

I suspect the only thing that will survive the courts are the canopy sq ft. limits.

thank you for your post, it was interesting.....tobacco is most certainly dangerous in the US because they pulp the tobacco with hundreds of OTHER dangerous chemcals(benzene and formaldahyde, to name two) to make them more addictive. as if they needed to!!

Mr Buttlicker

43 and you are posting 24/7? No wonder you want the great Obama. Why do you post from a place you don't live close to? Would people know who you are from your name > Buttlicker? or does that explain your actions that would identify yourself? Why are you sad that you don't follow sports? what do you suffer from?

thanks for asking.

I was inspired the poster "the last templar" ...

I thought it would be an appropriate name this fall, as you guys get taught again that your self centered agenda is WAY outside the mainstream!!

at some point there will actually be a "last teatard"

at that point?? I will be using that moniker...

as for the location??

the computer chose it....

what freaky coincidence!!

i went back to ayn, just the second someone complained about the rebuttlicker moniker...

it was simply a tribute to the middle ages...and the last templar!!

which is where the tea party seems to want to go politically.

so what about the other post I left you??

you never say much!!???

about the minutia of the weed issue??

what are you afraid of??

I was right about 215?? wasnt I??

dont take it too hard, I usuallly cut people slack, after I cut them down.(or debunk their arguements in your case)

can you envision california paying less for its criminal justice system??

proposition 36 adresses the fact that half the people in this country/state are in jail for non-violent crimes....

drug offenders in particular will be given leinience....less lives connected to them destroyed.

yes on 36.

Proposition 19 would change California Law to Legalize Marijuana and Allow It to Be Regulated and Taxed:
- Allows people 21 years old or older to possess, cultivate, or transport marijuana for personal use.
- Permits local governments to regulate and tax commercial production and sale of marijuana to people 21 years old or older.
- Prohibits people from possessing marijuana on school grounds, using it in public, smoking it while minors are present, or providing it to anyone under 21 years old.
- Maintains current prohibitions against driving while impaired.
How will you vote on November 2?
U have got to be kidding. Kids are suspended in schools now for bringing marijuana in their backpacks. Legalize it and u will smell it( but not see it) in McDonald's too. So, if u don't mind sucking in pot air at every Starbuck's u go to, then make your choice. BTW if u have children, 18 yr olds can tell u they have the right to smoke it at the dining table too.

this month is the 30th anniversary of the declaration of the war on drugs.

the reagan administration claimed it would cost 200 million a year....

today?? we are spending 25 billion a year on it.

altogether the amount spent on arresting, prosecuting and incarcerating drug offenders is approching 1 trillion dollars, total spent, since 1970.

that is just tax payer money fed into the system.

that doesnt include residual costs regarding the lives that were destroyed.

what it has been is a war on people

see the film "traffic"(2000)
