“He's a token guy right now and no one is going to want to deal with him if that's his attitude -- if he’s walking in and saying things are going to be a certain way because he said so.”

Is he a token guy or a toke'n guy?

I hope he fails. Big Weed would be as bad as Big Tobacco.

I don't hope he fails... but I do believe that Big Weed will become a big industry just like Big Tobacco.

"Big Weed"
Sadly that is what has happened so some extent in Colorado, and the proposed "rules" in WA are appearing to favor big money; because of the thousands and thousands in FEES, to apply for and get licenses, and yearly.

Here's a suggestion -- don't legalize, de-criminalize. Let Americans grow some (with limits as to how much), possess some, even sell or give away small amounts. I consider the corporate banditos to be as big a threat as the South American drug lords, frankly. I'd like to see BOTH of these groups kept out of marijuana, and our stupid, prison-filling pot laws revamped to let people do whatever they want

You should brush up on the Colorado law. 1) it was decriminalized several years ago. 2) it is completely legal now and households can grow 6 plants (3 flowering at once) and can give away weed to people. Legal to be in possession of 1 ounce. Can buy 1 ounce at a time (when the stores open, 1/1/14). I can have more than an ounce in my home. Not sure why you say 'don't legalize'? In the end, legalization is what is needed.

Yes, in Colorado. By "legalize," I mean open growing, sales, etc., which will give corporations, such as L&M, the ability to take over the entire market

We'll see if the federal government actually lets it happen. Since the election Holder has been saying that he will let us know how the feds will treat this law. Its a political hot potato, the administration is damned either way they go. The new law for retail sales doesn't go into affect until 1/1/14. Time will tell, never underestimate the stupidity of the federal government.

You have the idea, but remember, Prisons are private and out to get as many "customers" as they can. We spend $30 Billion on Prohibition yearly, and the big money buys way more lobbyists than the MMJ lobbyists.

It is stunning to realize just how few Americans understand our system of dual sovereignty. People on my side of the table still suffer the delusion that the change in State law means that they can't get arrested. On the other side of the table it does not appear uncommon to believe that State and local authorities are allowed to enforce Federal law.

In this case muggles is slang for cannabis and I'm making fun of people who ask "Why do you think they call it dope?"

Now you've gotten me worried that it's too obscure of a reference. I've never read any Harry Potter either.

I hope Jamen Shively does not turn out to truly be an 'insensate greedhead'. I hope he finds his humble self and works with those who are already in the fight for legalizing cannabis hemp. I want to see an industrial cannabis hemp industry, built less on greed. There could be enough for everyone if no one person is able to let the little green monster of greed come out. We can be better than that. We need individuals who can be better than that too.

I wouldn't give up on him yet. We need people with money and the courage to speak. Speaking out, shining a light on a better future working together would be my suggestion to him and anyone wanting to move the issue further. Speaking honestly utilizing facts would be the way I would go.

It's critical that they get it right. They won't get a do-over. I hope they all get together and work it out. Money and brains is what it will take. Leave the egos at the door.

Don't we all know people without a clue who act like they know what they are talking about and are able to convince equally clueless people to invest, but who find out later they've been had?

Should have been legalized in the 60's and taxed just like booze, our prisons would have less people in them and we would be getting tax money in.

These are just ideas to prey on the poor addicts and weakness of low information groups. The cry is to take their money by drugging them up.

Low information groups support the continued prohibition of industrial hemp, even though they can't explain why it should be illegal.

Regulate it like any other vegetable like broccoli
or mushrooms.

Mushrooms are a fungus, not a vegetable. Marijuana is a flower not a vegetable. You did correctly guess on broccoli though.

Marijuana is a: "HERB." One of God's bitter herbs. I imagine Moses may have had some after Pharoah demanded the death of the 1st borns. How else could you deal with such heneious behavior in leaders?

Ooops, ever since 1947, and the "inducted NAZI BRIGADE" you're lucky the citizens aren't on dope!

They've killed so many last century, and so many have died, for Vietnam and Iraq and LIES.

Look bottom line is, people can read, are more educated and know when they are being taken for a pharma/dowchemical/Oil/cotton industry fool.

So peddle all your lies to someone who believes in the bs, you peddle.

When's Santa coming little boy?

LEAP.ORG.

Law Enforcement Against Prohibition, much more truthful and bigger than those PIC prison profit people.

They are only against it because as long as the prisons are full of NoHARM felons, they get free slavelabor by penalty for profit.

We read their books a long time ago, and WE the People have found them false and lacking any substantive reasoning for the continuing of penalizing behaviors of humans. They will make their mistakes in life, but if there is NO HARM, there is NO FOUL FOR PRISON.

RELEASE THE POLITICAL WALL STREET PRISON STOCK SHARE FELONS!!

NO crime, NO jail.
