Petitions aren't worth the waste of time. If you want laws changed,you have to be willing to hit the streets,put yourself out there, and get with your elected officials face to face to let your feelings be known.

Tenn will never legalize recreational use nor will it ever pass a medicinal marijuana law.

It takes an enlightened, educated, compassionate, intelligent legislature to do so and that doesn't exist in Tenn.

Have you ever watched those clowns on tv? Do so and you'll see what I mean.

Plus if legalized it would dry up a major source of revenue for the courts (fines), seizures (thefts of property) by the various parasites in state and local govt and reduce the number of inmates in the prisons/jails which would cause layoffs in the prison-industrial complex.

If you want your doobie, you'll have to move to another state.

Why not legalize it and let the farmers grow it like tobacco and compete lowering the price and reducing crime to steal money to buy it. Let's get this back to the days when a nickle was a $5.00 item. Maybe we woud be peaceful again.
By the time the state established the rules and restrictions for legalized growers,distributors,retail places,and then added taxes on taxes like on liquor,legal weed would be VERY expensive. Then having large amounts of untaxed product in your possession to avoid the high priced stuff would get you Federal time like moonshiners get. Enforcement would come from the ATF and not the local Barney Fifes.

Be careful. I can tell you're either stupid or high right now just by your English skills. If you want to toke up, that's okay. But don't ever, EVER leave your house again. You can do whatever you want as far as I'm concerned. But stupid people who want to fu*k with their brains don't have a right to be out in public and should be sterilized to spare us the expense of having to teach their kids the difference between "doesn't" and "don't".

Not "everyone" ! Just those few who aren't smart enough to realize they are screwing with their job and future if they just happen to get in a situation to be tested and have a history of drug use on their work records.

Even if it were legal to posess and use small amounts,it still wouldn't allow you to have it in your system if you worked in a company that has a zero tolerance drug policy. Also if you have it in your system and get hurt on the job, you get fired and have little chance for any compensation other than a basic patch-up job whether it was your fault or not because you would be violating company policy.The state or Feds can't force workplace rules for employees to change until they agree to drop workplace rules and restrictions like workman's comp and OSHA that companies have to follow,like turning back the clock one hundred years.
The facts are that if they did happen to legalize it provide more jobs within our atmosphere than it would cost us jobs due to drug testing, etc.

The main push is for prescribed medical use,not anytime,anywhere use. If you were sick enough to need it for chemo or radiation, you would be at home anyway on sick leave. Even if the laws were relaxed, you still couldn't have it in your system at work or driving.Getting a "Drug Related Dismissal" or a "DUI" on your records doesn't do much for your financial situation. Growing for personal comsumption would be closely monitored and having one plant over the limit or selling your overstock would get you jail time. School zones have strict laws for guns and drugs. Getting stopped near a school night or day even in the street could get you automatic jail time if the judge sees fit.

Not in TN they did not. They proposed doing a year long study(more than a year ago) than after that year they told everyone that they would listen to testimony and look at the research data from the year long study.(After a year) The TN legislature did nothing that said they would. They never looked at the study, they had people show up to provide testimony and then they never let anyone speak. Tennessee is about 2 to 3 decades behind most of the country. TN has no plans for Medical help for those suffering.
,,,ur EXACTLY right when it comes to ten not caring about the suffering, tn's #1 concern & goal is $$$ THATS IT!! they're so concerned about who & how they can lock the next person up and how they can rid all the pills. I am in pain mgmt now and have an unbelievably hard time just getting my scripts filled ANYWHERE in nash because nobody will stock what I get, so I ask the last pharmacist that actually had n filled my script why n whats about to happen for ppl that are suffering and in need of their meds and she says they're working right now to make a NON-narcotic pain pill and will VERY VERY soon be NO MORE narc pain meds. So I asked her "what if they don't help some ppl?" Her reply was "oh well, I guess they'll just have to learn to deal with it, at least here in TN". Point is plain n simple TENNESSEE SUX AND THEY DO NOT CARE!!

Tennessee is not California.

We have higher moral standards, and we do not subscribe to the current "trash culture" that some of our posters here do.

So, unless you want to be a criminal and have to look over your shoulder all the time, then quit using weed, or get out of Tennessee.

Cuz sooner or later, you will be caught and go to jail over using weed in Tennessee.

And not too many people in Tennessee will feel sorry for you either.

Most will just be glad your off the streets.

But the road to California is still open. If you want legalized weed, then you gotta go there.

You cant have it here, period.

This is the most arrogant post ever. I live in Tennessee and it will be legal here soon enough. Give it ten years.

Also if you talking about moral standards in the biblical sense, there is nowhere in the bible that says you can't smoke weed. The only thing wrong with it is that it's illegal.
