Marijuana should never have been made illegal in the first place. It was made illegal in an effort to control the black population. Google it and see for yourself.

actually William Randolph Hurst started a smear campaign in the 1930's against canibis to protect his interests in the paper industry from cheap pulp fiber..just about the same time that alcohol prohibition was coming to an end..so now the federal government as many dea agents out of a job and needs a new victim of liberty to suppress..hence MARIJUANA PROHIBITION.

That is still not answering my question. We can descuss why it was made illegal all day long.We dont need a history lesson. I'm asking simply on present political,ideological and legal thought.

I think they should. If we have to wait for our elected officials to then it will be awhile.

As is common knowledge, Kentucky is about 10 years behind the rest of the country. I have no idea why. Inbreeding, Poorer education, lower economy, whatever the reason, we seem to run about 10 years behind.

Look up the major opponents lobbying against legalization. American Drug companies spend millions each year against it. Alcohol and Beer Brewers across the country spend over 150 Million every year keeping you drinking beer instead of smoking pot.

Thoughts on the Recreational use, or Medical use of Marijuana, from the perspective of a career law enforcement officer.

Since it has been determined by the medical and scientific communities to not be harmful to humans. And since it has shown to be beneficial in many cases. I have to admit, I have less issues with the people using Marijuana than I do with them drinking alcohol.

From my experience I can tell you that when arrested, most drunk people will attempt to be combative, or else vomit on you or the car.

Arresting a drug user, like a pill head or meth user, they will be combative and dangerous 99 percent of the time. In almost all drug related calls these are the two types of drugs seen the most.

Arresting a Marijuana user is generally no trouble at all. The last guy I heard of being arrested said Oh Man! Seriously?? Then he helped pack the plants to the car.

So no, I have no issue with a bunch of happy old hippie type people sitting at their houses minding their own business high on pot watching Gilligan's Island re-runs. If I have to arrest one of those type people, a pot user. I would bet we could call them on the phone and have them come on in.

So yes, I think legalization is ok.

As a regular alcohol user, and proponent of marijuana, and not a user of marijuana, I say "Thanks, you peepee sucker." It's all in our nature to support you law breakers, but you want to throw us under the bus every chance you get. What a way to support the people who vote for your bs, but by acting like we are the criminals, that you actually are.

Man you got to be a drunk and are drunk now. Your post makes no sense. What law breakers? Vote for what?? Sober up bitch and tell us what you are talking about.

See people, a pot user would not babble like the inebriated poster did.

So yes to pot.

The move on legal marijuana is on now.

Call, and have your friends call, our representatives, and get behind this.

Our main contact person to call is State Senator Perry Clark, Perry is the Senator that has the bill to legalize medical marijuana now. Then call, State Representative and Speaker of the House, Greg Stumbo.

These are the men that can make legal marijuana happen in Kentucky. Make the calls, tell them we want them to grant approval by changing the law, or put it on the ballot.

The only way they know how you feel is if you call. They need to be called by everyone that supports legalizing marijuana in Kentucky.

Tell them you know it is a federal law. Have them write into the new law, that we are aware of, and are disregarding the federal statute, and request they take no further action on this matter in Kentucky.

let's hope the states and the people that live in them who support cannabis are willing to stand up to the federal government. state sovereignty and civil liberty are two of our most precious rights as Americans. and that is really what this is all about when you get down to the core of the issue. it is time as Americans to stand up to our federal government and take what ever measures necessary to reclaim our country from an oppressive government and restore the constitution and what it stands for...return of civil liberty...return of sound money (commodity based)...return to a foreign policy that ends all of these entangled alliances...and return the STATES SOVEREIGNTY..

Everyone wants Marijuana to be legal, but no one will do anything to make it so. Here the poster told you what was being discussed and who to call and still you sat on your asses and did not call.

These guys respond to who is in their ear at the moment. So you want pot to be legal, then its up to you.

Make the damn calls. We can sit back stoned later.
