    Of course, how are you going to tax each and every pot-head growing his own stuff? honor system ?

    Any links to this research? I'm no dummy and I understand medical terminology and science on a molecular level, I would be interested in reading these reports.

    As for the honor system.....I would have to agree.
    One must be wary of the mentality creating the problem or the law creating the crime.

    I love America and the Constitution, if you don't then get out!

    So if pot is legal and you use it then wouldnt it be the same as someone who drinks? I wouldnt drink and carry so it only goes to say I wouldnt "smoke" and carry. (not that pot will be legal for me anywho) The same laws that regulate guns and alcohol can be used to regulate marijuana and guns.

    It was probably the same way when alcohol was coming around except you didnt have to get permission to carry a gun then. I am sure antis (if they were born yet) were all against alcohol and guns. Legal is legal in my opinion and as long as you dont mix the two ie smoke and drive or smoke and shoot then why should it matter?

    It's only a matter of time until marijuana is de facto legalized. They will amend federal law eventually.

    I don't smoke (or drink really) but I think it seems ridiculous that you forfeit your 2A rights over it--especially with all the folks on anti-depressants and other psychotropics these days...

    Cultivation of pot is a science all to itself. In fact, several community colleges in California offer certificates, and degree's in pot cultivation.
    I pretict pot will be commercially produced, and taxed.

    Regarding the paranoia about everyone getting stoned, and not working, IMO, not true. If you want pot today, make a phone call. The same people using today, will be the same using tomrow.

    I am waiting for the ATF to knock down my door. I admited to using pot.
    Hey, your back! Haven't seen you post in a while.

    Abuse of a firearm while stoned should be treated identicly to abuse of a firearm while drunk or abuse of a firearm while under the influence of prescription pharmaceuticals.

    Likewise, since neither being prescribed pharmaceuticals nor being a social drinker are legitimate grounds for the denial of a firearms license, then neither to should be a user of state-recognized medical marijuana.

    Legalization for the sole purpose of taxation is an abomination..................

    I know in Nevada it is illegal to be in possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol (.10 BAC) or under the influence of drugs. I don't see a problem with a person getting a permit, and only carrying when not under the influence. Of course, marijuana stays in the system for at least a few days or a few months depending on the person so it would be difficult for the person to know when it is out of the system. But that should be that individual's problem. Shouldn't punish everyone who uses medicinal marijuana from time to time.

    I never tried the stuff, and don't plan on it. I don't know if it kills pain better than Rx drugs, but someone shouldn't be handling dangerous objects while under the influence (where it is a gun, a car, etc.).

    Amen to your post Bighouse doc. As a practitioner of internal medicine for about 20 years, the entire "medical" marijuana is a complete sham. We have had marinol for decades which is the active ingredient. I could have written a prescription any time I wanted with my DEA certification but I never once had the medical need to do so for any of my patients. We have so many alternative treatments without the toxic effects of either "medical" marijuana or marinol. Appetite stimulation, nausea relief of chemotherapy and who knows what other alleged benefits, I know of no doctors who have ever personally prescribed them in a true medical need. It is all politics and the politics of controlling the "masses" just as they did with the opium dens in China by the British. China got rid of the Brits and the opium dens at the same time.

    The DEA does not recognize the states loosening of medical marijuana laws. Doctors who prescribe this are in jeopardy of their license although few have been prosecuted to date even though the state condones it. There is absolutely nothing to the justification of medical marijuana since we have so many alternative treatments without the intoxication effects. Just a bunch of potheads who are now voting in their substance abuse. It will be a sad day if CA actually passes this travesty.

    I am in favor of what the sheriff has done, there really is no responsible use of marijuana. One or two drinks does not have the same clinical effects on intoxication as one or two joints. Not the same issue at all from a medical viewpoint.

  11. Has anyone here criticizing marijuana ever even used it? Pot does not make you "belligerent." It relaxes you. That's the whole point behind its medicinal effects.

    And you guys who're predicting impending doom of legal marijuana are just as bad as the libtards who predicted impending doom of allowing carry permits. "Everyone's going to be stoned out of their minds and production will spiral out of control!" sounds strangely similar to "the streets will be flowing with blood as the bullets fly!"

    No one who smokes pot actually cares about the law, just like BG's don't care about getting a carry permit. At least legalizing marijuana will end the stupid "War on Drugs" on a grand scale, will relieve our overcrowded jails (since almost half of jail convictions are pot-related), and allow a steady stream of tax money to ease up this out-of-control deficit our country has. I know for a fact if it were legal and taxes weren't too outrageous that most users would rather buy it. Have you ever tried growing weed? It's a pain in the ***. Plenty of people would rather buy it. Legalizing marijuana on a federal level would be the smartest thing this country could do.
