Just think the tax revenues that could be raised and the drug enforcement expenditures saved while police actually served the best interest of society if this, the most harmless intoxicant known to man, that co-evolved with us, perhaps the oldest cultivated plant, were to be legalized.

I agree! Along with Big, Pharma, Big Oil, Big Ag, and Big Tobacco, what's wrong with Big Marijuana?

Fixed it for ya. Why pick on the substance which has killed NO one (pot) in human history? If you were a fan of science and true harm reduction, you'd change your tune. Instead, you have accepted the societal demonization of a non-toxic plant because government and large corportations cannot control it and profit from it like other dangerous, addictive, LEGAL substances.

Heck, if we're to get to the point, why not rail on fast food if you're going to express your ire toward something? Heart disease/obesity is a much larger problem for America than pot could ever hope to be.

In a legal marijuana landscape, this "incident" never would have happened.
When ______ is outlawed, only outlaws have ______.
Take this away from cartels and organized crime, and for Pete's sake, let's not jail people for imbibing on a plant. The war on marijuana has failed miserably.

Ironically that's the largest con on legalization, that Big Tobacco would be poised to take over a marijuana industry.

So economic growth of an industry, basically, is the con.

Ever been to a crash where the driver was high on pot and killed somebody? Yeah, it happens. Potheads are losers.

With mounting eye rolls at the traditional cons that the drug enforcement agency continues to perpetuate (you know, stepping stone drug, pot smokers lack ambition and tie themselves to a couch in their moms basement, etc...), the knew con that is being perpetuated is that a big tobacco would be poised to have the corner on the marijuana market. The obvious implication that is purposely not stated so as to be roundly criticized but will obviously be adopted in the minds of anti-big tobacco individuals is that Philip Morris and the others will somehow manufacture a highly addictive and highly unhealthy marijuana product that the public then becomes dependant on both from a use and tax revenue perspective.

Obviously it's BS like all of the other intellectually dishonest cons against legalization.

No, I haven't been and obviously you lack any experience with the tenancies associated with those under the influence of marijuana.

They are know to drive 5 miles an hour below the speed limit with both hands tightly gripping the wheel at 10:00 and 2:00 and usually avoid driving at all if possible.

There's probably some cases of people being drunk on top of being high (a very bad combination) and causing damage. That's more a function of the booze than the dope. Marijuana intoxication produces the opposite affect of loosing inhibitions such as those who drink. If anything, people who are high are more self conscious almost to a mild paranoia.

Ahh... the cop from Morris, fearing his taxpayer handout is in jeopardy, chimes in once again on the issue of the "evil weed."

No, quite frankly, I have NOT seen (nor been to) a crash site involving marijuana.
(I scour the newspapers, internet, etc. and have not seen news of a "stoned driver" causing a wreck.) That is not to say I condone impaired driving. Rather, I see PLENTY of stories related to alcohol, prescription drugs, etc. causing crashes. I also see a LOT (and am a personal victim of) distracted driving accidents.(Are you prepared to outlaw people drinking sodas behind the wheel, the scenario that caused me a year of physical re-hab?)

Pot and Booze is a bad combo, and likely the scenario you have come across. I have seen those stories. If you care to clarify, go for it. So far, you are blowing (prohibitionist) propaganda smoke.

You are law enforcement. You are one of the only factions which still supports pot's prohibition. Why? Because, the 40% spike in forfeitures the last two years in MN means your job is fully financed and secure. What a selfish reason to advocate putting people in jail over! Keep it up, and eventually, public support for "heroes" such as yourself will wither completely.

Ahh..gotcha. Phillip Morris would be like the Mexican cartels. No one would want their pot products if one could legally, lovingly, grow their own organic goodness at home. This is one reason they (Big Tobacco and alcohol) do so much funding of anti-pot/drug initiatives. Their "substance of choice" would be in harm's way if legalization occurred. Irony of ironies. The more dangerous substances telling us how "dangerous" pot is.

The guy from Morris (law enforcement it would seem) always comes on to chime in on pot. He floods the conversation with nonsense until people tire of it and leave. Ignore him. He is a troll looking to protect his healthy publicly-funded salary and has proven time again to have nothing of substance to add pertaining to this topic.
