well it's one thing on a small list of things that it seems everyone here can agree upon. You don't have to fight for it, but there are people who are.

This thread is definitely good confirmation that MJ legalization is low on the list of most people's priorities, yet few object to it.

I don't wish I had thrown my vote away on that jailbird Jill Stein.

MJ has been illegal since before I was born, yet somehow we have like, 8 Cheech and Chong movies, Dr Dre's The Chronic, and bong shops on every college campus...

Legalization is top of the list of issues I could give a flying fuck about. Anything people can already do with total impunity if they have half a brain is not worthy of fighting for.


Prolly why OP is fighting it prolly ;)

Btw, the "war on weed" is def not Obama's fault or fight or even his idea. Pretty sure it was started by OLD MONEY-hungry control freak men.

He didn't start it, but if his Justice Department is continuing it, it sure as hell is his fault, and fight, in the present. Lap dog that he is to NEW MONEY-hungry control freak men and women. But mostly men.

I don't think he'll change his mind on this subject.

But, I am voting in the next Democrat primary and this issue may be important to consider, assuming the candidates are similar minded in other areas.

you can't even get a job at many places these days without submitting to a urinalysis. I think it's discrimination.

Its worse. It shows the company assumes you are a user until you prove otherwise. Says a lot about our whole system in general that most big employers have this awful policy

Some places have random testing. So, it doesn't matter whether or not you're actually capable of doing a job... what's more important is that your piss is clean.

Doesn't make sense for him to start this fight with Obamacare looming. I believe this to be true with gun control too. We'll see though.

He was gonna leave the dispensaries alone too...for the very same reasons.

I hope that this article holds true. But I'm not, um, holding my breath...

The President's very own words are, "at this point, Washington and Colorado -- you've seen the voters speak on this issue... it does not make sense from a prioritization point of view to go after recreational users in a state where it's legal."

Public pressure works, my friends.

Democracy isn't about letting someone get elected to do whatever they want. It's about electing someone who will do what WE want them to do.

And he's a chronic liar. If he wasn't such a typical politicians that lies, lies again and then tells the big lie, only for people to believe him when it's politcially convenient, I'd have more confidence he is sincere. Since that is not the case, I have absolutely no reason to believe him now. I'd have to be a fool.

"Guess" is the key word here because he never says he won't do it.

All I'm sayin' is that this sounds a lot like what he said about the dispensaries, and we know what happened there.

I hope I'm wrong.

continued pressure on him is the only thing we can do, and if we don't continue to put pressure on him, then we are partially to blame in my opinion.

Exactly. If he really wasn't going to do anything then why not just come out and say it?

No, get it on the ballot and passed in more states, and when we have more than 25 states where it is legal, that would constitute a majority.

That would put pressure on the feds.

My point is this is so much more of a political issue, and they will keep playing politics until they are forced to realize how stupid the laws are.

Lincoln smokes weed in the movie? I will be sure to give it a spin then. They did indicate it was historically accurate. So for Hollyweird this all makes sense.
