It's civil disobedience to be a common user, but the dealers and growers are front line freedom fighters. In the war against church sponsored prohibition the mobsters are heros fighting against the new master race plan. After cleaning out drugs and tobacco the nazis will turn back to alcohol, sex, blue laws and church attendance. They want a superman race of mixed races that all serve God perfetly defined by the church.

Thanks Debra! Im having a difficult time with the connections here. Lots of storms lately.
THIS COULD BE BIG! The idea could spread across the nation and become an issue for vote.
Keep in mind how the prohibition laws attempted to prevent people from drinking, producing and selling alcohol. Now you can brew beer right in your own home. But I think selling it is a no no because Uncle Sam (the other guy) wants his cut. Be serious folks. Imagine this (put the bong down for a sec) MANY people smoke it. From ALL walks of life. Even politicians. And many others would have you believe that they dont, but really do. As long as its illegal to buy, produce, consume, these closet smokers have to rely on the "illegal" means to obtain it. In secret. And not be unveiled as a stoner. Now picture it legalized. Is Mr.Mayor, or Doctor feelgood, or even a DOD contractor going to risk his job or reputation on buying a pack of "Camel Kronic" at the vending machine? Not until the Big Government pays the FDA to wave the magic wand and deem it as, ahem, "harmless as booze". Legalizing it, like anything else, wont happen until Big Brother develops legislature to regulate & capitalize on it. So for now, the money (our $$ mind you) is put towards all the BS efforts to "keep our country drug free", which is really lining Joe Senator & Mr. Mayors pockets in the name of prevention/prohibition. Politics are nothing more than poor gambling habits, in a sense that people make deals with other people at the expense of the taxpayer. Show me a politician who is worth millions, that never ONCE broke our "laws" to achieve his millions, and I'll say you missed something in your research. Ok, someone pass it over here so I can shut up.. Seriously, I smoked my way thru HIGH school with a B+ average, became a 4.0 sailor, got out and continued my career in electronics, moving up the pay scales and never looking back. I have more money than I need. A good wife and home. Basically living the American Dream. I did it all while partaking. I quit drinking first. Common sense told me that a DUI and missing work with a hangover was not going to make it easy to stay successful. It made me sick. I got hepatitus of the liver. I did the treatments, talk about SICK!. What did I do? I got high..and I lived. The treatments ended, thank God. My smoking did too, shortly there after. Now I paddle my kayak, ride my Harleys and my work takes me around the world. It's just another high..

well next step fill officials office with letters of llegalizing mariguana. i'm sure they will love the tax on it and that stock market will go sky high records. Not only that but people will get of those side effect antidepressing drugs and get some real one. It's also good for pain like cancer patients. Funny i never tryed mariguana but have drank and personally I think it has the same effect if not mariguana might be more safer as in better alertness than alcohol from what i seen.

Most stoned people stay home, its the drunks that pick up the car keys and think they can drive. How about all the idiots on cell phones. I,ll take my chances with the stoners.

Actually if I had a choice, I would rather have someone on the road who was stoned as opposed to drunk. Their is a major difference in ability between the two. I'm not a brain surgeon but I am a Doctor.

There has to be a compromise. We are all not equal physically. A 22 year old in perfect health with perfect vision and good driving skills may be able to drive after a few beers better than most other people. Why should he be punished anymore than a 88 year old that,s on prescription meds and lacking any real reaction time ability. The prohibitionist really don't care! They want to destroy alcohol. tobacco, drugs and anything else that is not in their religion. Force people to God, and save their souls, even if it means killing and incarcerating millions.

Are you to blame if someone drops a mariguana seed on your yard and it grows. That is saying you dont know what a mariguana plant looks like. That would be a good way to get someone in trouble on something that has health benifite for ashma and pain relieve.

Such propaganda. Here is how I see it. If you are unable drive safely and talk on the phone at the same time, you are probably unable to drive safely, period. I think the cell-phone nazis who make it their business to drive around yelling at people who are on the phone look silly and need to focus on the road.

By the way, theres nothing like a stinky bag of martian pellets and leprechron dookie.:0 don't tell the fuzz.

Seriously though.. haha.. if America legalized pot.. it would make the stuff BORING.. thus making the use not so illustrious. If you could get it anywhere it would not be as fun to look for it, find it and smoke it secretly..
point is.. dont grow your own stuff.. if you do keep it to amounts that you can actually smoke and would not be forced to sell.. 5 plans would have been better? haha.. this is all dumb
