You'd think that our success at eliminating objectionable behavior would have discouraged supporters of 64.
After all, look at how we've eliminated prostitution after thousands of years of effort. Oh, wait, never mind.
And the success of prohibition. Okay, bad example.
And cigarette smoking. Oh dear.
How about food choices and obesity? Uh oh.
Surely perverse practices like masturbation have been eliminated by hundred of years of censure. I can weigh in on this one - not.
How obvious does a thing need to be? Honest information about responsible use and benefiting the common good through taxation is the only sensible approach.

Dunno. I saw it passed in Weld county even though Romney and Gardner won. Pretty interesting considering legalization wouldn't normally be associated with most people who support a conservative republican platform.

I'm so glad you outlined the differences between responsible use and abuse. Oh wait, for you, there is no difference! "Touch the weed and it'll ruin your life!" What a joke, you're still stuck in the 20th century!

And I guess all social drinkers are really closet alcoholics? Just because you think other people can't "hack it" (probably because you yourself can't, and you know that) doesn't mean others' rights should be restricted.

From the Seattle times:
Quote:
But what they cannot do is force Washington to reverse course and ban small amounts of marijuana possession, he said. "Under the U.S. Constitution, the federal government can't force a state to make something illegal."
That would be the Attorney General. Some actually believe that the feds can force a state to make something illegal. States do it as a courtesy to suck up and get money but in all actually we are a nation of "50 states". Feds enforce federal law. Period. States can sort of do it...although the flap over Arizona is actually part of that question. The dirty little truth is the feds need the states to continue the scam that they (the feds) have real power. Beyond occupying the state, they don't. All they can really do is intimidate individuals. America is a nation of freedom loving people and the feds know that this is the beginning of the end. States have spent billions locking up people for taking drugs-which amazingly people do everyday under the blessing of the AMA.

Just say to yourself...the king has no clothes...the king has no clothes...

http://seattletimes.com/html/localne...anafolo08.html

I am proud to have left a state that turned down legalization (although that measure had real problems) and proud to apart of a state that the majority have taken a step towards freedom.

That is just sick. Maybe your grandkids shouldn't go out on the road.

Alcohol and weed use and abuse has changed drastically in the last 12 years? Educate me, whats responsible use and abuse.

Just because you got suckered into an online bitch fest you feel the need to try and get others into a bitchfest with you. You are an idiot. You dont know me and I dont care to know you, dont put words in my mouth. By the way I say they would run your life, not ruin.

If you learn to read I said from my experience, not yours.

And cigarette smoking. Oh dear. Cigarettes are also not illegal, how many people die every year form cigarettes? Est 400,000+ per year
How about food choices and obesity? Uh oh. Food is also not illegal, we are also the fattest country in the world. 68 percent of adults are overweight or obese.
Surely perverse practices like masturbation have been eliminated by hundred of years of censure. I can weigh in on this one - not.

Will weed be any different?
