Thank you so much

Thank you so much for selling alcohol to the public which can kill you if you drink too much, and also for the highly addictive nicotine cigarettes and snuff that we can go buy at the store anytime.

You did a great job of taking the less-addictive and least harmful substance of abuse off of the streets!

Kudos, and excelsior!!

OOPS! I think you just broke your 8 gauge string by pulling your whammy bar too hard.

Next time you venture a seven stringed instrument, perhaps you should look into adding a lower string instead of a higher one. I'll teach you how to smash that guitar properly, once your attitude improves in about 15 years or so...

Typical, only dumb ass potheads would get on here to bitch and cry about how pot should be legal. Dont bother to mention that its a gateway drug, and if any of you deny that then you are a complet moron. I worked with drug addicts for 3 years, and one of the questions i had to ask them was How old were you when you 1st started using drugs and what drug did you use? 90% all said POT! When asked why did they proceed to do harder drugs they would say Pot just didnt do it for them anymore. I am not a fan of alcohol or cigarettes either but I have found that people that smoke pot always attack others to justify there habit. Im sure one of you will get on here and bash me and say my facts are wrong and thats fine but when you counsel people that would rather spend $ on alcohol, cigarettes and pot instead of shoes, clothes and food for there kids then maybe you would understand.

3 Million! thats a JOKE! with all the Deaths from Pills and Crack and this is what they are after. Sorry people this is NOT the 60's,70's,80's...there is no "gateway" drug!Kids are shooting Dilaudid in School and Lortab is the " gateway" drug here if one exists. Besides the main "gateway" to ALL substances is ALCOHOL! Keep focusing on this dumb s**t and forget the REAL DRUGS! The Feds are here to what? Find some random pot crop that "somebody" grew.Com e on! Quit wasting our Tax Money on this! Lots of things are "illegal" but right now we are losing our way of life over PILLS! NOT POT! As long as the DRUGS are Supplied by Drug Companies and then they in turn put up Methadone Clinics to get even more Money then the Drug Companies will make Drug policy. Think about it for one minute,if it was not this way then we would have Heroin everywhere just like all the other Rural Areas. The Govt wants to Control the Drug Business! Like it or Not,believe it or Not but it don't take Genius to figure it out.
It is what it is

This is a joke. We pay State Police great money from our tax dollars and they go around riding four wheelers and pulling up weeds. Meanwhile, all the drug dealers and in Bluefield, Welch, Hinton, and Beckley commit crimes and hurt people. We pay State Troopers 50K plus a year to ride four wheelers and helicopters removing weeds. While Mexico just imports marijuana and takes all of our money. If there was good weed available people would not buy harder drugs or commit violent crimes. Weed is a sedative that calms people West Virginia is stupid and Tomblin is stupid too.

maybe you should concentrate on their addictive personalities and disfunction in lyfestyles that led them to do drugs instead of 1950,s reefer madness propaganda. how many of these people said marijuana made them try it in the first place. or was that a lyfestyle issue. how many were suicidal and wanted to end their existence and way possible. like you yourself say they went on they were wanting a bigger rush. most kids i know today get their highs from the medicine cabinet. and again after 40 yrs of telling kids its a gateway drug what do you think they are going to tell you? exactly what you want to here so they can get back to their families and friends.

I am a wife and mother to a beautiful, well taken care of, 14 month old little girl. I had a rough labor and now I have a lot of back pain issues. I also have been suffering from depression since my delivery. After a year of feeling lousy and taking prescription pain pills for the pain. I stumbled upon some marijuanna and read about it's medicinal qualities and health benefits. That was it for me. I smoke one puff in the morning, one in the afternoon, and few in the evening before I pick my daughter up from day care. No one knows I smoke, because I use it as nature intended, for medicinal purposes. I am happy every day now, I am doing better at work and home, and guess what....no more prescription pain killers, now I just take Tramadol if needed. So you see folks, it is time to get with the times and do a little research on it before you get on here defending anything. Mary Jane is fantastic. There are actually recipes online to make your own THC tincture and capsules, which is my next move so I do not have to smoke it anymore, I can just ingest it!

Mary Jane? Is a street name for Marijuana, I believe you are a criminal who purchases an illegal substance. Stop trying to down play your illegal activity just to make yourself feel better. Wait until you have a mandatory drug test, What will you do then?

Any one remember pro-hibition? Alcolhol used to be illigal. Something that has been around since the bible days, even Jesus drank wine! But our federal gov got a cucumber stuck and make the impactful decision to take it away from the people of the country. Same goes with Marajuana, just because the govermnent says that its "bad" doesnt mean that it is. I assume that if our good ol government outlaws caffeine tomorrow that each of you would go criminal to get some! I can go pull up some weeds in my back yard and smoke them but If It made me feel great then theres no doubt in my mind that the governing officials will find something wrong with it and start blamming Americas problems on the weed!! Truth is that Native Americans smoked it for centuries, it can be traced to our American roots! The government was unsuccessful on taking away alcolhol and they are loosing credibility amongst the American people by aimlessly blaming pot for all the problems our youth are encountering. We are only a stones-throw away from loosing all of our rights, you people who have not tried it...shut the f**k up. I have never tried herion so i will not for one second pretend to know one f**king thing about its addictive nature. You all are just repeating some rubbish you grew up listening to your mom preach to you. I am a thriving American who enjoys to smoke this natural remedy to anxiety and pain. If your grandmother was diagnose with terminal cancer and she found that the only way she could gain an appitite would be to smoke a joint would you call her a criminal for buying the stuff?? I hope not!!! Maybe if that happened then it may become clear to you how harmless this stuff really is.

Oh but she should totally take the prescription narcotics pushed on her by our own pill-pushing doctors. The stuff that they doctors push on you is twenty times more addictive!!! Also the pills are jam packed with enough aspirin to kill your liver in ten years!!! And if you are foolish enough to buy pain killers on the street you will know that it holds a much harsher punishment than if arrested with marijuana. Funny, wonder why THAT is? Maybe the police know this also? Buy painkillers without a prescription and its a felony, buy marijuana it is a misdemenor.Funny like I said.

Of course that blows everybody's mind here! They can accept methadone and pills but a Plant that has NEVER caused even one overdose is completely unacceptable.Not to mention Man has used it since we could use our hands. The Medicinal Properties in Marijuana threaten the Pain Pill and methadone Business here so the Police are going to protect their "Bosses"! Well,it's like this! WE will keep pushing for Legalization. And this inflated Article has been sent all over the World so people can laugh at how STUPID our State Authorities are. We don't want your Alcohol! We don't want your addictive drugs! We are American,we have that choice ya know. I see Speeding as a lot bigger threat than pot. Anybody who chooses to smoke weed over a Legitimate Pain Problem should have that choice between drugs that Addict and a simple Plant. Those who are informed KNOW,that the "War on Drugs" is War on Pot" as ALL drugs can be evacuated out of the System except pot. "Illegal"! Please People! Ask me if I care! You smoke your weed and if uneducated people don't know the History,the Effects and the MANY uses of Marijuana then thats your problem. If it's soooooo wrong then why is the White House considering legalization to "fix" the Economy? Do your Research!

How about you do neither! How about you dont smoke weed and you dont buy illegal pills! Just take what you are perscribed by your doctor. I Swear to God you people will make any excuse to smoke your dope. Get off your asses and run for Congress or Senate and try your hardest to get into a position to get it legalized! Until then IT IS ILLEGAL! YOU DONT LIKE IT THEN MOVE TO AMSTERDAM!

Show me proof that the White House considering legalizing it? How about googling Marijuana linked to accident, or death. You might be surprised at what pops up. Like the one where the operator of a train was to stoned to stop his train when he was supposed to and hit another one head on! Over a dozen killed! Oh wait i forgot pot has never killed anybody. Alocohol and pot are both worthless drugs that should be illegal!
