I don't smoke ANYTHING, especially tobacco (is there ANY USE for tobacco, help me out here, folks?).

But on this issue, there are several things that I believe to be very important.

1. Nancy Reagan made a mess of this, as did all her minions in the "just say no" campaign. It would have been better for her to tell people to "just say no" to sugar, HFCS, bad cholesterol, red meat, and highly  Read More...

FOR SOME of your misguided pundits, consider this. In a state like Oklahoma, a person caught with one joint can face up to a year in prison (which is usually the case). So now the person gets charged with a FELONY. They get out of jail, can't find a job....THEN ARE FORCED TO GO ON PUBLIC ASSISTANANCE. And for what? One joint? DOES THIS MAKES SENSE?

Not every state is like Oklahoma. In Ohio, simple possession gets a ticket for $100 and doesn't warrant a visit to court.

And for awhile here you'd get in more trouble for paraphernalia than the cannabis.

I think his point it the ridiculousness of laws and destroying a person's life who is doing no harm to himself or others.

We should all be pushing our state's gov't for legalization, see if Obama's DEA can keep up with 50 states...

I'm more for States rights than not, as long as the majority of voters pass the law then the feds should abide by the states vote.

Wonder if Obama will change his vacation plans to either Colorado or Washington this year.

I expect him to actually get an auxillary office there. But I also pose this question to you. If our military has enlisted and officer clubs on base will they also provide pot smoking areas and sell exotic blends in the military base stores? Just what we need, is a guy in a nuke silo in Colorado, stepping outside to smoke a fatty on break!

Nowhere in the Colorado or Washington laws does it allow cannabis on military bases nor is there any part of these laws that allows employees to be intoxicated on the job. If you can't argue for prohibition without making things up out of thin air, maybe you should reconsider your position?

The Obama administration suggested last week that it was considering plans to undermine the voter initiatives. In his interview with Walters, The Best is Yet to Come. He did not lie. What the voters wanted is immaterial to this administration. That's why forty six percent of the people did not want him back. He lies.

If marijuana is illegal under federal law then booze and cigarettes should be too. They do much worse damage to peoples health than pot. OOPS, I almost forgot the hundreds of billions of taxes booze and cigarettes bring in...OOPS, I also forgot the tens of millions of dollars the booze and cigarette lobbies bribe (OOPs I mean contribute) to a vast array of congressmen.

Where do you think the money came from to get the legal weed amedments on a ballot to be voted on in CO & WA--big surprise-- Big Tobacco-- that is who will benefit from all this wasted time and money on the legalization of a drug for the sole purpose of getting stoned.

I'd like to see proof that tobacco companies lobbied for marijuana legalization. On the other hand, the alcohol lobby has spent millions trying to prevent Americans from having access to a safer, healthier and more responsible alternative to their drug. It must be out of altruism, right?

Gun Control, let's see, they have that in Norway, Germany and nearly all European countries and there have been mass killings in the past several years that I know of, if a person is bent on killing, they will find a way.

Obama grew up in the day. He smoked a lot more than he's letting on. What a shame he will not admit it's not as bad as the booze.
06:48 AM on 12/15/2012
He admitted it. Is that not enough? You expect him to say that he smoked 253 joints in his youth? Come on.

Bleeding heart liberals and ACLU types got it canceled because it violated one Amendment or the Other. They forgot, IT IS A PRIVILEDGE TO DRIVE AND YOUR LICENSE IS REVOCABLE FOR VIOLATIONS. Well, a person that complies with the insurance laws, and not drinking or taking drugs while driving or piloting, HAVE AMENDMENT RIGHTS AS WELL. It is called the right to LIFE, LIBERTY, and Pursuit of Happiness. That right includes the expectation that States will enforce Driving and Insurance laws to protect the public in general. So where is the ACLU and Insurance Lobbyists when it comes to protecting the rights of the normally Law Abiding Driver and Pilots.

Driving is a term of art used in commerce; if your travelling in your personal conveyance, it's not the same thing at all, barring that the objective of both is to get from where you are to where you want to be.

My only thought on this is: establish the standards and reliability of testing as with alcohol. If the Legislative and Judicial systems in each state or federal level can see eye to eye on how to test, what to test with and what level of toxicity in the blood stream is illegal, then do it now. 21 states already legalized medical MJ and 2 have legalized its non-medical use. Much the same as legal drugs prescribed by physicians and medical maladies that physicians dictate and notify the law enforcement system that people should not be allowed to drive or pilot aircraft, so should the states and federal government establish the same rules for non-medical usage. Insurance companies could assist in this matter by simply notifying all automotive and aircraft insuree's that if you have an accident, the only person or property covered will be the other party. You will be blacklisted from obtaining insurance coverage in the future. By the way, why don't they do that with un-insured motorists. You know, New Mexico used to do it before. Proof of insurance prior to registration, if you cancelled, the insurance co was mandated to notifiy the DMV. If you didn't show proof of insurance within 30 days, you were automatically sent a summon notifying you that your Drivers License was suspended. Failure to appear within 90 days meant REVOCATION.

There are already ways to test for driving under the influence of cannabis. It's basically a non-issue: it's illegal, these laws make it even easier to prosecute by setting concrete standards, and there's no evidence that legalizing pot will lead to an increase in traffic fatalities. In fact, states that have legalized marijuana dispensaries have seen their traffic fatalities drop while neighboring states saw theirs rise.

Regardless of political affiliation, or views on second amendment rights, the utter horror of what happened simply cannot be expressed by mere words. I'm a dad and an ardent shooting enthusiast, and I can't describe how I feel about this. I can only ask, what has happened to our society? I am truly sickened.
