Pot hasnt killed anyone yet..700 drinking and driving deaths in Colorado this year..Not one from smoking pot..People need to focus on making drinking and driving illegal..Oh wait..
You said 700? lol Do you realize that is almost 2 per day? And for alcohol abuse there is a breathalyzer test. For MJ there is no test. As one who has been a passenger in an auto driven by a MJ smoker it scared the beejesus out of me. It seemed there was no ability to properly judge distance from other vehicles and the reaction time was much slower. A pothead behind the wheel can be just as dangerous as a drunk.

I'm guessing that you don't look at facts or statistics.....check into it, you'll probably be surprised to find out that cannabis is less harmful than alcohol and tobacco.

They are. Being arrested for marijuana is very unhealthy.

Yes mj is a natural plant, tobacco is too. So is the clap cyanid is a natural substance too.

I don't care if pot is legal or not. In fact since it is illegal by the fed I guess Colorado will have to grow pot to supply the legal demand.

This will be a boon to agriculture. Processors will be needed and this will give unskilled jobs for the chronically stupid and might take some folks off welfare.

Marketing and packaging jobs! Since pot is federally illegal these jobs are guaranteed to all be in Colorado! Why the hell not legalize it!!!

Pot doesn't have all the additives you find in cigarettes. I would surmise tobacco wouldn't be as harmful either if all the poisons were left out.

That is the truth, you don't have to surmise. There are also many ways to enjoy cannabis without ever inhaling one iota of smoke.

There he is!!! This is the guy with a quintisential 2013 attitued.

Look assh*le, you are about as successful as a dog fart!!! MONEY IS NOT SUCCESS!!! But then almost everyone in here will go along with you. So as the human race continues to regress back to an ameba you can feel proud that you successfully helped lead the way.

Smoke your pot, make your money, step on everyone you can and find riches and success. The only thing you have right is smoking your pot and that is still debateable. It used to be that the pot smoakers I knew were fairly intelligent people. They would never call themselves a success and leave that judgement up to others. But in 2013 everyone beats their own chest. Make a toutchdown...love yourself and don't even look at the players who blocked for you.

Try acid. Seems some people found their true self that way. Of course it would probably kill you. The mirror can be a scarry place.

Amen to that.

I smoked for 2 years in college unti I wised up. Pot makes you dumber than a brick as well and for those whose IQs are less than the ounce content of a Diet Pepsi it doesn't help.

I'm from Colorado originally and can't believe this shit Amendment passed. Most my friends living there think it's a joke as well. Of course they're successful and not some warehouse picker whose only worry in life is when he'll get high next.

Ah ha, seems there is more to this then I thought.

This is the first time I have herd someone talk about the driving in a negative way. So smoking and driving should be illegal???

I don't think we need to place pot in the category of heroin but yes....if you drive pot then drive you should get busted.

I know myself that it impairs your ability to fully function as a driver.

It would be easy enough to test I would think. Get someone bombed out of his mind on pot and run an abstacle course alongside someone who's clean of that shit.

Dear Americans:

Please forgive me Sirs to change the subject.

America's trade-deficit and America's current-account-deficit are growing.
Please lower dollar-value!
Please export American-products!
Please buy American!

The U.S. must have 5-Trillion-dollar-current-acco unt-surplus per year and 5-Trillion-dollar-trade-surplu s per year!
The minimum-wage of Americans must be $70,000 per person per year!
The jobless-rate of the U.S. must be 2%!
The U.S. and American-companies must monopolize all the markets all over the world!
The U.S. needs Heavy-Industry and Manufacturing-Industry!
The U.S> must be the largest creditor-nation in the world ever in world-history!

China, Russia, Japan, Germany, Taiwan, and South-Korea are evil-fascism-communism-empires !
Remember Pearl Harbor!

Asian war, European war, Japan-China war, Japan-Russia war, Japan-S.Korea war, Japan-N.Korea war, British-Russia war, Germany-Russia war, Falklands war, South Ossetia war, Tibetan Independence war Balkan war
must be begun now!
And, the U.S. must not be involved these wars.
The U.S. must make weapons, ships, steel, cars, PCs, airplanes, and home-electric-appliances in the U.S., and the U.S. must export those weapons, ships, steel, cars, PCs, airplanes, and home-electric-appliances from the U.S. to the world!

The U.S. must withdraw our American-Forces from Japan, from South-Korea, from Asia, and from Europe.

I love the U.S.A.! I love all Americans!

Very sincerely yours,
Shinichiro Takizawa

Dear Americans:

Excuse me Sirs.

Why don't you export Marijuana?
Marijuana and drugs are not good for human-health.
But, even I can understand that some people need businesses in order to live.
Then, let's export!
We are Americans!
We have the mightiest government in the world!
The U.S.Gov ernment can force Japanese-governemnt to make Marijuana legal in Japan.

Americans must export guns too.
Americans must export Marijuana too.
(A tank may be $5,000,000. A gun may be $500?)

Please imagine.
If you found, something like, some kind of, Aladdin's lamp? Magic-potion?
What would you pray for wishes?
It seems to me that you Americans wish that
(1) you want to go to consumer-finance and borrow money,
(2) you want to buy Marijuana, and
(3) you want to hit your neibor Americans in order to get money.

YOU CAN DO ANYTHING!
Why will you do above (1)(2)(3)?????

Why will you make Kings and Feudal-Society?
America's origin may be Phalanx, Ancient Greece, Polis, Roman Republic?
Every American-court has Greek-Goddess as symbol?
(I have NO intention to support Italy.)
(I have NO intention to support Greece.)
(I only support only our America.)

Export American-products!
Get money!
You should eat stakes and lobsters in stead of Marijuana!

I am deeply sorry that my opinions are very childish.
But, you should noy watch dangerous TV-programs.
I donot deny American-TV-programs.
So, you must export American-TV-programs too!!!!!
I will watch them!

Very sincerely yours,
Shinichiro Takizawa

I have NO intention to support Europe.
What I want to say is that
our America is a democratic-country!
I think that George Washington might point out so.
(Am I right?)
I respect our America's traditions.
I love the U.S.A.!
I love all Americans!

I am deeply sorry again and again.

I am sorry again and again and again. I am sorry.

What I want to say is as follows.

Europe's origins are Kings and Feudalism and Knights.
But, our America's origins are democracy.
So, we America are different from Europe.

I cannot explain well.
Help me!
I want to show that I am loving the U.S.!
I love the U.S.A.!!!!! I love all Americans!!!!!
I am sorry.
