Ky is trying to pass a bill to legalize medical marijuana .. Google it and sign up ...
#2 Nov 15, 2012
Why not? It will be just as beneficial as all these liquor stores the county has. The county was expecting an increase in jobs and revenue for the county. The only thing that increased was arrest for DUI's and under age drinking. Yeah it will for sure get my vote and support! NOT!

Did you smoke any cigarettes this morning while you were having that cup of caffeinated coffee?
If so you were doing drugs. Two of them. Both known to cause health problems. Tobacco goes even further. That poison will kill you eventually and you will die a horrible death from it.
The DUI rate didnt go up because the booze became legal. The underage drinking didnt increase It decreased cause the liquor stores actually check ID. The bootleggers could care less how old somebody is as long as they had the money to pay.
Legal marijuana and hemp would have to be better than seeing all our brothers and sisters in jail for pot related charges.
If our politicians wanted to do something good for America they would make tobacco illegal. They would put the people manufacturing it and selling it in prison just like they do for pot.
Its time for Americans to get their heads out of all these lying politicians ass and do something thats good for all Americans. Not just the Americans that get elected to office.

Jesus! That was spot on :D
#5 Nov 21, 2012
Nope... I don't smoke nor do I drink coffee or soda. You can talk until you are blue in the face. No way would you ever change my mind. That's all we need is someone else blowed out of their minds on the road driving and falling asleep. The alcohol is more than enough on the road to contend with. I don't give a damn about those in jail. They are not related to me. They did a crime they should have to pay for it. It's as simple as that. They should have to get a real job like the rest of us instead of sailing drugs to those that have problems.
And how dare you say it's good for all Americans. You don't speak for my household! I see no benefits at all for me nor my family. Especially for my children, and I want to keep it that way. I have seen and been around those who have smoked pot in college. They are not the smartest people. It's like being around someone Impaired from drinking to much alcohol.

You sound like you could use a good joint. Plus comparing someone smoking weed to being drunk is the funniest thing I've ever read. The weedheads I've been around have been nothing but talkative people and the drunks I've been around have had a tendency of being annoying, making no sense whatsoever, and best of all violence. I'd rather be in a room with a hundred potheads than one person who's even buzzed from drinking. So in the end you'd rather have someone driving like a maniac drunk or someone trying to stay under the speed limit high on weed? I've yet to ride with anyone that had smoked a joint and felt fear for my life. The ones that I've ridden with drove worse sober than they did when they were high. Besides all because you don't drink pop, coffee, booze, or smoke weed doesn't give you any right to tell anyone or insult them for what they want to do with their lives. That's not up to you to decide and that's why this country is on the brink of stupidity about these types of things. I haven't smoked weed myself in awhile but never once did I feel like it made me dumber or lazier and if anything it just always put me in moods of wanting to read, research things, talk to people about life and such, play video games, or just stay at home and do projects with my kids that isn't even related to school. Alot of people in jail for marijuana related charges aren't even in there for anything violent or hurting anyone "do your research" and the only ways of violence that come from it is those who sell it illegally and go along the crime route of doing it and supplying drug dealers with more money to do god only knows what. I suggest doing some research about something you don't understand instead of forming this totally sterotyped opinion about it. Their is alot of documentaries, books, hell even information online about it and its many uses.
#7 Nov 22, 2012
I have done research on it. I have been around those that have been "high" on the crap as well. I don't want the stuff around me or my family. Apparently, you were o "stoned" out of your mind to see what it does to a person 's motor skills . Pot slows down your reaction time when driving in a vehicle. Just like alcohol does. There is a reason its considered illegal and it's not due to a government conspiracy like you want to believe.
I did not at any point say it was up to people like me to decide what this country should do about this matter. Nor at any point did I insult anyone about the way they chose to live their lives. You my friend, need to come back down to earth and get your head out of the pot smoke.
You were the one telling me how I shoukd feel on the subject. And how wrong I was for not agreeing with you. I simply told you, that you were not changing my mind regardless of what YOU thought or felt about the subject.
And if I were you, I would not smoke pot again because you can't afford to lose anymore brain cells in your lifetime.
And again concerning your jail comments. I don't have to do any research. It's common sense to those of us that have it. If you break the law, regardless if you don't agree with it, than you should have to do the time. I don't care who you are. Your comments doesn't make any sense. Regardless, if you sale pot it's illegal! Whether you sale it in a nonviolent or violent way. It's still ILEGAL! No matter how you try to sugar coat it in your mind to make it right. It's still a wrong. Just like your saying that pot gave you the incentive to be more socially active. Yeah right! Pot depresses your metabolism. Your sesnses are impaired. You are in a more mellow state of mind. In some cases, the had been reports of it affecting the body in a much negative way. In which it caused the inhalient to become violent.
I will agree with you on one thing. There is a lot of information on the subject.
So next time, don't blame an innocent person for your beliefs. Not everyone feels the same as you do on a subject matter. I have my beliefs and you, your own. Just because I don't agree with you, doesn't make me a bad person or wrong in the subject matter. I simple believe someone under the influence of pot is not thinking with a rational mind. I believe they are impaired from making the best decisions for themselves and those around them. I do believe once a person starts smoking pot, that person is a different person. They are no longer a trust worthy party at that particular point. These are some of the factors that I feel are very important to me and my decision on how I feel about legalizing this drug. I'm sorry if you don't agree with it. But that still does not affect my decision in this matter.
#8 Nov 23, 2012
Arrest your wasting your time trying to convince me that pot is bad for you. I know better from personal experience. Not from something I read in a book.
The reason Marijuana and hence Hemp became illegal was due to the biggest lie ever pulled on Americans and your still so ingrained it that lie you cant see the forest for the trees.
Hundreds of medical surveys and documented research into the subject proves beyong a shadow of a doubt that marijuana does not cause health issues to users. Unlike tobacco or alcohol. Marijuana actually has several health benefits for users but that big lie is still out there keeping it illegal. For now anyway.
The time is coming and its coming soon when marijuana and hemp will be completely legal. You may as well get ready for it.
Besides that. If you really want to jump on something for being bad for you why not jump on tobacco. If you would do that I would back you 110%. It causes horrible deaths and destroys lives daily, costs taxpayers billions a year yet the poison is legal. Go figure
#9 Nov 23, 2012
You can't explain this to certain folks. She's the type who probably thinks that Little Billy will more than likely overdose on pot before he can graduate from high school and bang the prom queen.
I for one am ready for it to become legalized. Kids are gonna drink, snort, smoke, whatever they want to do as they grow up and some of them won't. That's just the way it is and will always be as long as their is some type of substance that can give you a buzz. I've always felt its how the user abuses and uses his choice in the matter. I'd feel alot safer knowing that I can buy what I want legally, coming home and smoking a doob while watching tv or reading a good book. From what I've seen from potheads compared to drunks wins hands down.
#10 Nov 23, 2012
I feel I haven't changed in the slightest to be honest. To say that it changes someone makes no sense to me whatsoever. We're not talking about heroin, pills, or alcohol. We're talking about weed. Have you even smoked it? Hell even my own grandmother who's 93 said it should be legal compared to everything else that can kill ya just as fast. To say someone who smokes pot isn't trustworthy at all and I'd like to know why that is? Is it cause they'll raid your nutmeg cabinet looking for something to smoke? You can take your factors and make them important to ya all ya want, base your own opinions, etc but we can to. To say that people change is basing and forming your own opinion about something which you clearly don't understand and yet you went into a rant about how I shouldn't tell you how to think, feel, etc and yet you just did the same damn thing. You say you based this opinion and that doesn't make you a bad person but yet you're basing that anyone that smokes weed "which I do" isn't trustworthy and I find that insulting. Never once have I stolen, or asked for a handout from anyone so what does that say about my stature in this life? So is going to work everyday, raising my kids in a loving house, all the while wanting to smoke a joint at night makes me very untrustworthy? You clearly are uneducated in the subject if you ask me. Yes I'm allowed to base my own opinion on the matter to. Are you a bad person for thinking that? Not at all as a matter of fact. Just misinformed. Ya don't really hear of anyone or have ever heard of anyone dying from marijuana. Instead they just become untrustworthy beat nicks who enjoy good music, movies, and books. I'd better quit what I'm doing before I start stealing from my kids piggy banks :D
#11 Nov 23, 2012
I'm pretty sure potheads have more things to worry about than smoking a joint around you and your family. Don't worry though! That college tuition that you're saving for your kids will be put to good use once weed is legalized. Instead of doing keg stangs they'll be doing hookah stands and able to wake up the next morning without fear of waking up dead ;)
#12 Nov 23, 2012
You fine folks just just prove my point. I careless if you smoke, get high, pass out,or fall over! It's your body and your brain cells not mine. I have been around people ho smoke pot. You cant tell me for one second that it doesn't alter their state of being or mind. Because it does. The majority of the people who smoke it, don't smoke it for medical reasons. They smoke it because of the affect it has on the body and mind. The way it makes them feel. The someway people drink beer. Because they like the way it makes them feel. I don't care if you smoke it, your grandmother smokes it or your whole family smokes. I don't want it for my family. There is no benefits for pot in my household or my children.
Like "YOU" said, it's the users choice, right? The sameway a doctor writes out a prescription for pain pills. It's the "USERS" choice right? Whether they take the medication right or they abuse the medication. The same way with pot. I have seen people stoned out of their minds with this stuff. Their reaction times slowed to a halt. You can't tell me that your motor skills are not impaired at all from this stuff.
As far as the trustworthy comment goes. I would 10 to 1 trust someone who is not under the influence of pot than someone who is not. I would also not hire someone for a job who does pot. Again, I think their minds and bodies are not up to par when on this crap. At that time they become a liability and not an asset. They become more of a problem than a solution.
And your right, potheads do have more important things to worry about than my family. And that would be sitting in a conor stoned out of their minds trying to figure out where they are going to get their next joint from.
#13 Nov 24, 2012
You are sadly misinformed about the effects of smoking marijuana.
Marijuana is not addictive. Did you read that? IT IS NOT ADDICTIVE.
I dont give a damn who trys to convince you that it is or how much you try to convince us that it is that is nothing but a baldfaced lie and we smokers know it.
I havent smoked weed in over 6 months. When I quit I didnt have withdrawels, I didnt crave a joint and I didnt go rob my neighbor or have wild uninhibited sex with his farm animals like some idiots would have us believe pot smokers do.
Maybe your drunk daddy had sex with the farm animals but most pot smokers prefer humans of the opposite sex.
Again, If you want to jump on something for being bad for us jump on tobacco and alcohol. Pot shouldnt even be on a list of things that are bad for us.
If your research shows negative data I would suggest u try researching it with a neutral point of view instead of a prejudiced one.
You arrest have had so much smoke and lies blew up ur ass about marijuana you will probably never change your mind and thats a shame.
If you really want to protect your family from bad drugs you would never allow them to be around people smoking tobacco again.
Then I would applaud you but your rant and rave about marijuana being bad for us proves to me that you are very much misinformed about that wonderful God Given Plant.
Please educate yourself about the subject matter before posting again if you dont mind.
Ignorant ass hillbillies that open their mouth and prove to the world that your ignorant makes us all look bad.
Its much better to keep your mouth shut and let people think your an idiot than it is to open it and remove all doubt.
Thats kinda what you dont with your comments
#14 Nov 25, 2012
I am not trying to convince you in either way. Just because you don't agree with me doesn't make me wrong. I careless if you smoke and jump off a building. It's you and not me. But when you start driving on a public toad blowed out of your mind than it becomes me. I have done research on the subject. Both from a good and bad view points. it's not a government conspiracy against you "potheads" why it's illegal. So get the smoke out if your eyes. I am just defending my point and opinion in this matter. If you think it doesn't affect you in anyway, than my friend you have smoked way to many joints.
And as for as the comment of being an ignorant hillbilly and being stupid. You have the right to your opinion. I myself have an opinion of your "type" as well, slow, misinformed, undependable, most are uneducated, and not goal oriented.
So I am going to put this in words maybe you will be able to understand. Here goes: I don't care nor have I ever cared if you, your family, your dog or cat or anyone else for that matter smokes this crap. I don't care if you think it's the best thing since chocolate and you think everyone is wrong but you on the matter. I don't care! I don't care if you, your friends or family get put in jail from growing, smoking or sailing it. It's a crime so do the time. I was just posting my opinion on the subject.
And as for me educating myself on the matter I have done that in great detail. It seems like you need to take your own advice and brush up on the topic. Your life experiences of smoking pot and getting high does not count as "educated material". If though you want them to. It doesn't work that way. There is two sides to every story. Not just the "Get High Pot Smoking it's all good for you version " that you are running on. Again, two sides to every "pot story".
So for now. It's still illegal. I know so sad, right? Even if it was passed, it doesn't mean you can walk on main street with a joint in your hand. There is stipulations to the passing of the bill. But oh wait, your so one sided that part doesn't matter right? Just what you think, your life experiences and opinion. But anyway, good luck on your "Pot Quest."

Arrest you completely missed my point. Thats probably that big lie showing its ugly face again.
I believe it is much better to keep our working Americans in the workforce, paying taxes and supporting their families than it is to have them rotting in prison over pot charges.
I also believe legal weed would definetly stop the flow of billions of American dollars to the drug cartels in mexico all while increasing the cash flow into the US Treasury which is much needed so all the thieving politicians can sustain life in the manner they have became accustomed to.
I also believe legalized Hemp would create an industrial revolution like no other before it thus creating millions of jobs but more importantly we would have access to a completely green renewable fuel source that leaves no carbon footprint to destroy our environment.
Are you going to tell us a few million much needed jobs plus the green fuel source plus the 100,000 other known uses of Hemp wouldnt be good for you and your family? Im thinking most Americans would disagree with you.
#17 Nov 26, 2012
Are you for real? Just like all these dam alcohol stores here. It has done nothing for me my family or this dried up county. And pot is going to save us all? Yeah right.
#18 Nov 27, 2012
Oh Yeah. Im for real all right. If you think the taxes coming in from the legal alcohol isnt doing some good for clay county you need to get your head out of the sand my friend. Just because you cant see it in the form of cash in your hand dont mean its not happening.
Legal Hemp and Marijuana would have to be better than this neverending completely lost war on drugs that has destroyed families and cost American taxpayers billions of dollars and is still costing us billions. All based on a lie. Doesnt that make you feel better? To know for a fact that we have family and friends rotting in prison all because some rich people spread a lie so they could keep getting richer without any competition.
Thats what it amounts to. If you dont believe me do some research into the subject matter, educate yourself as best you can then maybe you can make an informed decision instead of basing your opinions on a lie.
#19 Nov 27, 2012
Pot suppresses your appetite? Where did they get that lie from? That's funny. There's a reason they call it "The Munchies"! Yeah that's a real bad side effect. Not! Whoever Arrest is sure didn't do their homework.
#20 Nov 27, 2012
Are you high right now?? I read their comments, they never said anything about pot making you not want to eat. There is two sides to every story. You people seem to think it's just your side and everyone that don't agree with you are wrong. That is where it becomes a one sided morons opinion instead of a discussion.
