I have been told when you get really old it doesn't help, it just makes you paranoid. Who knows?”

“I've seen a lot of instances where old people have been helped by using Cannabis for reduction of pain and an increase in appetite. And I don't know about the paranoid part. My Mom, 88 and died about a month ago, was extremely paranoid the last 3 years; people stealing from her (she didn't have anything really worth stealing) and people were trying to hurt her. She NEEDED to use Cannabis but she didn't. Also, look at all the young uber-gun nuts. Can't get a bunch who is more paranoid than that. I'm pretty sure that it helps many of the older users. Paranoia? Don't know. Hell, even aspirin doesn't help everybody. :)”
“According to the SCOTUS, the right of privacy is derived from several constitutional sources, such as the right against unreasonable searches and seizures. A "penumbra" of rights cobbled together into a recognized right of privacy.”
“I'll repeat what I wrote in another comment: "If he told the Justice Department to stop busting the Cannabis dispensaries in California, because they are legal through the rights of the states, they would stop. He hasn't told them so, "YES." these arrests are on his hands. Hypocrite."
Are we in agreement?
I'm getting to the point where instead of making Cannabis legal, it should be made mandatory for everybody 21 and older. :)”
“The war on Drugs is a local matter, but abortion is a federal matter. Go figure!”

“The SCOTUS has recognized a fundamental right to privacy when it comes to abortions, on par with free speech and freedom of religion. A woman is autonomous when it comes to these reproduction decisions, and the government lacks a compelling interest to interfere with her rights. Pot isn't like that.”
“Tell that to the medical marijuana dealers in California. They'll set you straight.”

“That wasnt Obama either . Local authorities wanted federal help
But I will say Im getting sick of waiting for the answer we were supposed to get "soon" according to Holder.
There is no reason to wait -- all the evidence is clear --our children are not dying from cannabis , but their lives are being ruined by the enforcement of these baseless laws.”

“So your telling me the President was in the courtroom and he was the one to bust them. Well damn.”

“Huh, that law has been on the books long before Obama became president.”
“They take a more solemn oath to protect and defend their salaries, their pensions, their health benefits, their ability to trade on inside information, their ability to accept gifts and their ability to take paid for "information gathering" trips. When those concerns are not at issue, they focus on U.S. markets and perpetual war.”
“I never elected the CIA or the NSA. Both organizations have acted outside the scope of authority given them by elected officials. When talking and conversation sound like hate to you. It's time for some self assessment.”
