Washington state lights up as smoking marijuana becomes legal

In the city of Seattle pro-cannabis campaigners celebrated in a haze at the foot of the Space Needle tower at one minute past midnight, the moment the state's new law came into effect.

Vivian McPeak, director of Seattle's annual Hempfest, said: "This is a big day because all our lives we've been living under the iron curtain of prohibition. The whole world sees that prohibition just took a body blow."

The new law only allows cannabis to be smoked inside, and doing so in public is still subject to a $100 fine. ...

No, it's the overreaching greed of Republicans q.v., The Record of Republican Corruption as an example and the people who support them. This is not to say that Demos don't push for some of the same things as Republicans e.g., the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act by "Wild Bill" Clinton, q.v., Paul Ryan: ‘I Agree’ We Need To Reinstate Glass-Steagall.

But, Baby Bush implemented one of the most obnoxious policies of all, the Faith-Based Initiative, "A union of government and religion tends to destroy government and degrade religion." ---Supreme Court Justice Black, q.v.,The Faith-Based Initiative and ‘Charitable Choice’: Harmful to Religious Liberty and Civil Rights

Ah, those were the days, the 1970's! I saw a "Dragnet 1970" where Joe Friday lectured school teachers on marijuana. An excellent show where he pointed accurately, marijuana had to be as bad as alcohol, and he might as well have pointed out no doubt all the problems of in taking burning weed, but then he was a smoker.

There's only one thing more detestable than the Democrats' never-ending lust for power, and that is the Republicans' thoughtless overreactions which end up feeding it. Dept of Homeland Security via Bush comes to mind. The Repubs seem not to understand what is meant by unintended consequences.

Booze and tobacco products are taxed quite heavily in the U.S., and they certainly have not disappeared. So, these pot states could raise revenue from it. A very slim silver lining in a big black cloud.

This is a great experiment, for now we will see how it affects public health, safety, and welfare. Will there be more car accidents? Accidents in workplaces? More domestic violence? Or just greater sales of junk food like Twinkies (well, not them, anymore, but something similar).
Greater tax collections? I doubt it. I think the general rule is--if you tax it, it will disappear.

The same is true for all medi mj dispensaries around the US. Any one of them can be raided by the DEA and ATF at any time even though they are a legal entity within their own state, operating within the law. Crazy.

I'm on the fence over the legalization, but I do agree that it's def less dangerous than alcohol which will never be outlawed no matter how many die.
What's interesting is that while being legal at the state level in Washington and Colorado, MJ is illegal at the federal level. Pretty funny. So, you could be smoking a perfectly legal joint, but walk by a DEA agent while doing so and you will be arrested and charged with possession.

this is a nation that puts its children on psychotropic drugs and fills their bodies with a known neuro destroyer - (asptme) -- and then makes hemp, a food, and material for ropes, clothing... illegal. Guess we'll just stick with petroleum.

it invades countries because of WMD's and then used deplete uranimium in the tons (see Rokke). ?

then afghan farmers turn to poppy fields after decimation of wore and then mainstream news covers the fact that the troops are told to protect the fields.

we take in mercury, aluminum, detergents into our body and then look our nose down the alcoholics.

the answers are in scripture. God has given us design for life. that is male/female, generations and living from the provision of God's hand. the intelligence of the people is going down, and this is why. we do it to ourselves.

our people take their synthetic pill everyday to abort the natural processes of the body (linked to breast cancer as well) -- which is known in one mechanism to be abortifacient.

then after DU, BCP's, asptm, mercury, aluminum, psychotropic drugs, petroleum-dollar wores, poppy fields, the church will take its moral stand with the prison complex which has given us the highest incarceration rates of the world. my mind doesn't grasp such things.

I'm against the whole gay marriage thing, but believe it or not I don't have much of a problem with legalizing marijuana. It will free up space in the jails for dangerous criminals, put more tax revenue in the treasury, and put drug dealers out of business while making sure the product is high quality and regulated.

People who are getting high are going to get high weather it's legal or not, so why not make some common sense laws? Alcohol is legal and regulated and marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol, so legalize it and get over it.

Does this mean Christians should start eating space cake and passing the peace pipe around? That's a decision that you would make for yourself, the same as drinking beer or anything else the Bible doesn't specifically condemn.
