Amendment 64

I'll completely understand if the mods want to remove this. Political, not motorcycle related, etc... My apologies if inappropriate.

I've posted a poll on a couple of different local interwebz boards, and am really surprised at the results.

Reminds me - I need to sit down and read the details on this tonight. Can't make a decision until I have the facts. And this is about doobies, not politicians, so I think it's OK

I'm for it but....

this type of legislation will not pass until the alcholoic generations of the 40's, 50's, and 60's complete their life cycle.
Differnent generations, different dependancy. I guestimate around 2025 the HR puffin-stuff revolution will materialize .

What's the point of making something "legal" in Colorado that is still illegal under frederal jurisdiction?

The FDA still says marijuana is a Schedule I drug. Until that changes, nothing really changes.

It forces the issue. States will have to legalize first, then the Fed will follow suit. Or, so I believe.

I'm for legalizing marijuana, but after reading the blue book, it just seems like the proponents of this scraped something together to get it on the ballot.

It seems like there's still a bit of work to be done and issues that need to be resolved before it's legalized. I'm voting NO this election for it, not because I don't want it legalized, but it just seems like it will be legalized on a whim this year. Besides, it's still illegal federally.

You want it legalized, think it will be but don't like the wording? Everything has to start somewhere.

I'm not following you. Smoking, booze and motorcycles aren't illegal at the federal level. Marijuana is.
It's a Schedule I controlled substance like heroin and worse than morphine which is sched II

I realize that that is the current law, but do you really agree that pot is worse than morphine. Some laws are just stupid. Alcohol is way worse for you.

Yes, Big Pharma is quite peaved a weed growing out of the ground will undercut them after years of producing highly addictive and relatively ineffective pain pills when measured against the side effects. So...the government declared it a schedule 1.

Follow the rabbit hole of corporate lobbyist for the drug companies (ie the powerful & controlling families of the world). They could not patent marijuana thus no monopoly thus let's outlaw it. And the cotton growers, the hemp fiber is superior to cotton but that is a huge threat so suppress it.

Marijuana is truly worse than morphine and equal to heroin?
Sure after alot of back door buttons have been pushed and payoffs paid.

States ended prohibition before the feds did. It forced the issue. We are a group of states not a single state.

Right on. And we all know it leads to other drugs and thats where the problems really begin.
