While voters in some states were okay with allowing poassession of pot, others were offended at the thought of providing more money for schools. That is a disgrace. Now not only will there be a stoned population but it will also be uneducated. That is what the right wing wants. Stoned and stupid people. Perfect combination. This way this dumbed down nation will be asleep when what is left of the Republic ruined and stolen by the rich and the corporations.

No you cause the over crowding and lack of construction with your silly old reefer mad gossip. People aren't walking around stoned now, neither would the laws of physics change by legislation. You must realize just because you make up all these hobgoblins, doesn't make them real. Millions of people laugh in your face or spit in it would be more just. Drug worriers lies only profit the Killing Cartels and Asscops getting the money, that could be used for many social services, reducing income tax for each of us. Your lies are being exposed even by the MSM. By Sergeon Generals and Appointees turning the job down. You are an insult to humanity. Get over it and stop hurting kids in the name of profits on prohibition! Here Lack of a Brain. This is where the school funding went...

"We have spent over a trillion dollars trying to eradicate the world's most beneficial plant off the face of the earth. Imagine what a better world this would be if that money had been spent on treatment, education and studying the medical benefits of marijuana."
-- Steve Hager

Measures To Legalize Marijuana Are Passed
In Colorado, voters backed a heavy tax on recreational marijuana, which was made legal here last year. The tax will pay for the cost of overseeing the state’s marijuana industry as well as school construction.

MJ Market Poised To Grow Faster Than Smartphones
The market for legal marijuana in the United States is growing at a rate that is poised to outpace the expansion of the smartphone market, according to a new report obtained exclusively by The Huffington Post.

Marijuana's Tax Potential Attracts New Allies
A measure to impose hefty taxes on recreational marijuana passed easily Tuesday, as voters across the state overwhelmingly chose to make pot one of the most heavily taxed consumer products in Colorado.

Traffic Stop Nightmare

This is just too, too much.

Go read it, and come back.

Fortunately, the comments there are pretty much unanimous — the police, the doctors, and the judge involved in this all deserve to be put away.

This is the kind of complete loss of… humanity… that comes from the drug war.

Update: Turns out this same scenario has happened before here. 4 On Your Side reveals another traffic stop nightmare

Again, Leo the K-9 alerts on Young’s seat.

Young is taken to the Gila Regional Medical Center in Silver City, and just like Eckert, he’s subjected to medical procedures including x-rays of his stomach and an anal exam.

Again, police found nothing, and again the procedures were done without consent, and in a county not covered by the search warrant.

Here’s an interesting tidbit:

The doctors from the Gila Regional Medical Center have been turned over to the state licensing board. It’s possible they could lose the ability to practice to medicine.

And then…

And the police officers will be answering to a law enforcement board.

Yeah, we know how those work.

Be proud Schmice, your gossip has helped terrorize Americans. Al Qaeda and the Cartels appreciate it. Koch private prisons and Rehabilitation Asylums, Pisstasters and Gossip mongers brainwashing kids appreciate it. How do you profit on prohibition Schmice?

"At DEA, our mission is to fight drug trafficking in order to make drug abuse the most expensive, unpleasant, risky, and disreputable form of recreation a person could have."

Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA)

Don't Buy into the Fear Campaign About Dangers of Marijuana Smoke
By Paul Armentano, AlterNet - Tuesday, November 5 2013

Why we can't allow the truth get stretched on health risks tied to cannabis.

As public support for amending America’s antiquated and failed cannabis criminalization policies continues to grow to record levels, stalwart prohibitionists – predictably – are doubling down on tried-and-true propaganda tactics to attempt to turn the tide. One of their most common strategies is to emphasize alleged health risks associated with marijuana consumption, in particular the claim that cannabis smoking causes cancer and other tobacco-related respiratory risks.

A recent example of this argument appeared in an October 29, 2013 Seattle Post-Intelligencer commentary, entitled “Marijuana smoking and the risk of lung cancer” by Eric Vallieres of the Swedish Medical Center in Seattle, Washington. Predictably, his alarmist commentary is heavy on rhetoric but woefully short on facts.

Of course, no one argues that the ingestion of combustive smoke, whether it is tobacco smoke or cannabis smoke, is healthy. However, it is inaccurate to allege that the risks to the consumer posed by these two substances are equal. In fact, the most recently available peer-reviewed science clearly rebukes the allegation that cannabis is as equal to or more dangerous than tobacco. For example, writing in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) in 2012, researchers from the University of California, San Francisco reported that occasional to moderate cannabis consumption was not associated with the adversely pulmonary risks associated with tobacco smoking. Investigators "confirmed the expected reductions in FEV1 (forced expiratory volume in the first second of expiration) and FVC (forced vital capacity)" in tobacco smokers. By contrast, "Marijuana use was associated with higher FEV1 and FVC at the low levels of exposure typical for most marijuana users. With up to 7 joint-years of lifetime exposure (e.g., 1 joint/d for 7 years or 1 joint/wk for 49 years), we found no evidence that increasing exposure to marijuana adversely affects pulmonary function." The full study may be read online here. - Read the entire article at AlterNet.

Logic and Common Sense Kills Prohibitionists...
If it t'aint in it, it can't do you harm.

Hiding the poisons doesn't make all smoke equal.

Creating a multi-Billion cigarette black market and more demonizing, evictions, out casting and civil rights abuses. Segregation... Again fer the chillrin... Thousands of years and hundreds of cultures smoking organic Ganja and Tobacco without problems. The introduction of "pleasurable" smoking ingredients was the start of the health epidemic. Still neglected in discussions, by Congress and town councils patching budget holes with fines. Or taxes driving lower incomes to generic brands with even more poisons for your pleasure. Flame retardants and Burn enhancers to make the vegetation burn at the same rate as the paper. No one ask if it was potentially harmful to ignite and suck into a lung? As they haven't ask why Nixon rejected his own Commissions reevaluations of testing on Ganja back to the 19th Century. Still legally listed as no medicinal value when the same department sends rolled joints to patients. No one sees that as maybe peculiar? No one sees the trillion spent terrorizing Americans as odd or a little queer and funny to the ear?

Ganja phobic and Drug Worriers cause the harm with their antiquated pseudo religious farts and burps hemming and hawing diversion from Logic and Common Sense. Take the word of a Liar by Law, and a Trillion dollar job market producing a schedule number one non-psychoactive, non-narcotic, narcotic listed as equal to PCP angle dust, Crack and Heroin. This menace is known as Canvas and Burlap. Blue Jeans and Nutritious seeds and the oil in them. A trillion spent eradicating it and another trillion lost in Fossil fool pharmaceutical, cotton, trees, meat, factory farms and fisheries competition. Wall St buying legislation with revolving door dung worriers profits a higher priority than the people they are sworn to govern under the guidelines of the Constitution. Militarized Sqwat busting down doors on tips from junkies making deals. Forced enema's on Dogs testimonies proven highly subjected to the masters body language and reward system.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
