Yeah, nice pics Mr. Scoot...I see the crop is doing well this year...when you going to share that with your Lush friends???

Btw, my dog doesn't smoke pot, but she's at that stage where she seems to be attracted to "Bad Dogs" and her boyfriend does...
Since he started smoking, he lost a good job in airport security, he just sits around and smokes, eats everything in site, can't remember where he buried his bone and won't learn new tricks...even though he's not old...
The question is...how concerned should I be here???
Any help appreciated...here is his picture....

I must have fallen asleep after that last post. Sorry. I'm really not shy MNP. The revenue from taxes on weed could be astronomical. The cartels would definitely see a.hard hit on their bottom line. I believe it would reduce some of the violence between these cartels. Corruption affiliated with the Marijuana trade would be non- existent as we know it now. From the cop on the beat who turns his head to allow a deal to go down for a little extra cash to the cop who himself is selling it. With a good portion of the pot coming from the evidence room of the local precinct. Then the corruption escalates into the higher echelon . The States Attorneys, the judges, the commissioners, the Governors, and toss in a few (many) politicians to the mix that are receiving bribes, kick backs, payola, or whatever else this "supplemental income" should be called. But the most important thing to me is that it would help relieve the problem of overcrowding in our State & Federal prison systems by releasing non violent Marijuana offenders. If you don't have to house & "guard" these type of offenders then that equals a surplus to the overhead of operating costs. I have stated my opinion before in other various similar threads & that was the reason I replied as I did. However, I will know better the next time I post & will try to be a bit more elaborate!!!!!!!!!!! . . . Attention:::::::::: MNP .......

The government has two main duties of care: firstly to protect the individual, secondly to protect society. These often conflict and balance is difficult.
We do not own ourselves to do exactly as we please even with our own bodies. We belong to our family especially our mothers who brought us into this world. We are not at liberty to do as we please for we may damage ourselves and others by reckless behaviour.
In western democracies we have arrived at a very good balance allowing a lot of freedom but also protecting the individual and society from harm.
Alcohol and nicotine are part of our culture; they are monitored and controlled by consensus, but not banned, and the balance swings from time to time with much debate and consideration.
For a longtime opium was freely available; there were many opuim dens in London and other big cities and the US. But our forefathers deemed it sensible to stop the drug fearing its powerful degenerative effects.
In the last few years a concerted attack on smoking has been made to protect the individual.
The recreational use of drugs will never be without risk but nor will the use of motor cars and many other things.
I believe that legalising marijauna will create more problems to add to those we already have so I am against it.
To those who say we must have individual choice I would say we cannot do what we like, life is limited by laws in a civilised society, we are paid up members and with the benefits come the snags.

Thanks Little Miss,
Thats what Autumn and Thanksgiving are all about:
A cornucopia at harvest time!

Dirty,
I'd say your dog is just NORMAL,
Give him a shot a tequila or two, that'l git him up and howling

I agree with most here; Pot should be legalised, might take some of the fun out of it, but felony charges for growing your own stash is insane.
Fuk any drug cartel, they have many illegal ways of making money. I really don't think it would hurt them for long. It's just marijuana.
They have guns, Kids, and many other drugs they can shoot them selves over.
Most laws written in the last 200 years have been abused by Judges and Lawyers for the purpose of raising revenues,
and keeping their high dollar jails filled, another fine money maker.
Unfortunately, if they legalise Pot they'd have to make something else illegal, or lay off many from the judicial system.
Oh well,,, it sure sounded goodBoo hoo!

If it is legal, do you really think it will stop illegal growers. Hell no! Alcohol sales are legal and they still brew and sell moonshine. It's the same thing just different products. Another point to consider is if it is legal then it gets a tax stamp at least in the US. That means the government controls it, and do you thinkk they are going to allow the high levels of THC currently out there? Again I think not. This is really a hard one valid arguments can be made for both sides, me I will continue to attempt to learn and if it comes to a vote do my best to cast an informed vote.

Organic Weed, Organic Hashish (here in lucky Europe!!!) should be totally de-criminalised (A nod to the rather clever and informed WMM there!!!)

Some artificially engineered (GM) strands of weed, ie, Skunk etc etc have been proven to be problematical among those with a propensity toward mental illness.... Probably best leave those ones on the prohibited list....

Otherwise..................................

Smoke 'em if you've got 'em....

Doesn't matter if it is legalized or not, people are still going to get it, use it, and sell it.

Come on Sil moonshine? I think I could sniff out heroin before moonshine... Maybe in your part of the country it's more prevalent. You telling me moonshine sales wouldn't fluctuate if alcohol were made illegal?

As for the THC levels. It doesn't matter if it isn't strong. I can take a ton of weak weed and make kief out of it. I can then sprinkle that kief on the weak weed and make it as strong as I want.

ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, do not legalize it:D
dont get me wrong i love smoking it and getting high, but think about it, the government is crap, if they decide to legalize it, they are going to tax the crap out of it, and they are going to take out most of the THC, so you arent smoking anymore, it will not get you as high. so my opinion let weed continue to be illegal, because you will pay less, for a better type of weed:D

Yes, they will probably tax the shit out of it, but do you really think they would lower the THC count? You are Canadian, so your alcohol is already under this type of system. Do you think that if the government wasn't taxing and controlling it that the alcohol content would be higher? With the exception of the moonshine talked about above, the alcoholic content in Canadian beverages is as high or higher than the rest of the world.

it is just my opinion, like why would the government let so much THC in to there product, they want customers to keep coming back, and if people arent getting as high they will buy more, which with increase the sales of marijuana. and i am not really familiar with the alcohol content from canada to the rest of the world:p but i think the government are greedy bastards and to keep sales up, or even increase they will cut down the THC count.

Well, the way you explain it is definitely logical. It would increase sales. But I think the black market would be too much of a threat for that to work long term. As long as there is superior product available elsewhere, the government would be hampered in any attempt to limit the THC content because people would go back to buying from wherever they do now. But that's my logic, which doesn't always line up with the government.

Should pot be legalized? Abso-fucking-lutely!

Aside from the stupid slippery slope arguments, I don't see any downside (unless you are a drug dealer).

Now let me clarify...I do not smoke pot. After all, there are much more entertaining drugs out there!

But making something as harmless as weed illegal, only serves to criminalize harmless people and create an environment in which the actual criminal element thrives.

But..... I also think that people devoting a large part of their life to the legalization of marijuana should find something more worthwhile to spend their time on.

Pot is not a wonder drug. Not a panacea. Not a miracle cure. It makes you high!

If I have one more red-eyed deadbeat dressed in a Nirvana t-shirt tell me that "Pot is like...sooo good...for like...glaucoma and cancer...and you can...like...use it to make paper and stuff..." I'm gonna fucking shoot myself.

If you want to legalize weed, then at least be honest and say why. It's not for glaucoma or paper, or any other purpose. Its because you want to get high! If it didn't make you high, nobody would give a fuck about the medicinal or paper-making properties.

Legalize it. But don't kid yourself by pretending its going to enrich the lives of the human race.

BAM!

No, that wasn't from your comment. I actually just viewed your profile. If anything would make a person shoot himself it would be the vision of a grown man comparing his dick to a 7-up can.

Comparing his dick to a 7up can? What?

I just had to click on it after that..... I thought I was going to see a guy thicker than a soda can. Holy shit I thought... But no it was just a length comparison, being longer than a can is fairly normal isn't it?

Funny though.

We all had to look. Meh. Photoshop yourself longer than a wine bottle, then you'll really have a good gag.

This thread just got way more fun than stoners talking about making weed legal.

Just friggin legalize it.. The tax that could be made would be unbelievable, there wouldnt be as many drunk related crimes because unlike alcohol which doesnt suit a lot of people (they turn violent,angry,stupid) , weed just makes you giggle and sleep, people are gunna smoke it regardless of legality so why not make it legal and make some money on it.. stops people being charged for rediculous cannibis related crimes too..

I do not see how a plant can be illegal. It is in Sweden too, on the other hand I do not see how people think that the government would get in any taxes from it...
They should let it be legal to grow it. They should not be the ones to sell it nor handle it, after all isn't alcohol bad enough to gain money from?

On the other hand, if you want a high, there are several legal mushrooms to get, do not pick the wrong ones though.

Hey Scooter, that's a big mushroom you got there...they grow them big in Ohio I see...you didn't find that in your yard did you??? I think you really need to do yard work more often...

Btw, Rasta Man Scooter...I don't think you ever told us your views on marijuana legalization...

Being as I just took a wopper of a hit from that bowl there, and had mushrooms for breakfast,
I think WMM said it best:

I tend to lean more towards decriminalizing marijuana than actually legalizing it. There is no reason why any person should be labeled a felon and have their entire life ruined forever after an arrest, for having in their possession an organic plant.

And then once sentenced and tagged with that scarlet letter - Class A, B, C, D felon tag...they get shipped to a real state prison in the USA or some other horrid place in another country and get to live around true animals for a spell. 'They' are punished even more severely once they have to be in that situation, than simple confinement from the rest of society.
