I just doubt this administration, is gonna be that tight assed about it....not like the republican's that want to continually flex their power....American's are realizing, the war on drugs was a huge waste....

Well .... actually, it's not the Republican politicians who are like that, it's only the idiotic voters. The politicians do not like spending the money on the war with drugs, they do still have some conservative values. Repugs, teabaggers, and Progressives are notoriously pushing to end the war on drugs, but there are a few of their politicians, and just enough of the Democrat ones as well, to slow progress. As I keep reminding people, the two parties are not that different in reality, just in the spot light they put on a show for voters.

The politicians generally figured out that the war on drugs is a waste a long time ago, but they need either a majority of the voters agreeing, or the ultra wealthy to agree, in order to actually do something about it. It's a game of cat, mouse, and dog, and they're the cat.

The war on drugs might be a huge waste but, we can still win it. We can win it by ending it!

So you disagree with state's rights, sad.
The "States rights issues" came to a head with the hodgepodge of conflicting abortion laws resulting in the "Roe v Wade" issue from many years back. This country can not live with major laws differentiating between village to village,town to town,city to city,county to county, and state to state. As much as we don't like it,sometimes it takes it takes Federal Law to make society's laws fair to ALL!!

Federal law takes into account states rights. They dont just sit behind their desks trying to figure out how to quash the wishes of the "people" Both fed and state legislature/congress are guided by the wishes of the people they represent. Thats why you have elections! So if the pro mj trend continues, the feds will have no choice but to relax, and decriminalize mj across the board. At the end of the day, the people rule, not the govt

um what ? Politicians really don't care what the people want or their best interest are, they may say that but it is all just lip service.

You misunderstood my point. My point is: those politicans you speak of, were voted in by people like you and me. They dont put themselves in office. And the very same process (voting), will eventually cause mj to be decriminalized

like I said lip service, we may have voted them in but they then flip flop to what they think is the better good, we can only hope that they do the right thing. I for one hope that they DON'T pass the regulation cuz a drug is adrug is a drug, addiction is addiction. Get over it if they do pass it or rather look the other way , more and better u.a's for everyone. If you think that pot is okay in the work force then check out your locale jiffy lube that will change your mind in a big hurry thanx

It will be a hard uphill battle in the Bible Belt. Stoners and dopers are compared to Cheech and Chong in "Up In Smoke" Not to far off from the kids you see locally sitting cuffed on the curb while Rambo searches their car.

Cops aren't stupid like you think. Every town has their punk stoners and they are well known in the law enforcement circle. Thanks not breath mints,coke cans, and cigarettes they're placing on the car roof. You're right about respect. Those lowlifes who show no respect for the laws of our land deserve no respect themselves.

not a priority here in my town, they're more busy chasing the "pillheads", which hold up and rob the pharmacies, break into homes to rob people of their pills, and kill 7 year old kids while driving under the influence of pills. Then all the people arrested for DUI (alcohol, because the BAC is listed) All stories in my local paper today. Not one thing about cannabis....

Respect is a two-way street, and the few cops that think like you do not deserve their badges, when we expose them we will end their careers by making them to mail clerks.
