VICTORY! Cannabis Legal In Colorado And Washington
Last comment by MrTowlie 4 hours, 45 minutes ago.

Colorado and Washington state have struck a blow for individual freedom and states rights. Thumbing their noses at the Federal Government and it's failed 40 year "war on drugs" they have boldly rejected the prohibition of a substance far safer than the legally sanctioned poisons of the alcohol industry and replaced it with a means to regulate cannabis's sales and use. Rather than continuing to spend obscene amounts of our tax dollars on an immoral, unconstitutional, and unwinnable assault on personal choice and freedom while sending all the profits out of the country they have wisely decided to legitimize one of this nations largest agricultural crops and reap he benefits that only regulation and taxation can bring.
With this first big blow against the unholy alliance of Big Brother, Big Pharma, and the Industrial Prison/ReHab Complex expect The Machine to shriek in rage and fear as it realizes it's days are numbered. Just as the end of Prohibition v.1 ended with individual states acts of defiance so will this current stain on human rights. It took only a single election cycle the last time, just four short years to repeal Prohibition 1, what will the next four hold for us?
BTW; did I mention Massachusetts just passed a Medical Marijuana Bill granting safe access to medicine for it's citizens?

Keep up the good work Tommy, the more light you shine on the governments war on human rights the faster they scurry for cover like a bunch of cockroaches.

Here's something from the Infowars site:

"They say crime pays? Not exactly. Legalize a former crime and tax it and it really pays.

Just ask Colorado. Perhaps not so awkwardly labeled the “Highest State,” Colorado pulled in $2 million in taxes related to the sale of recreational marijuana…in January 2014 alone. Combined with taxes on sales from medicinal marijuana, the state pulled in nearly $3.5 million in pot-related tax revenue. If that trend continues, the state will see more than $40 million in additional tax dollars in 2014. To put that in perspective, that’s approximately 1% of the total annual budgets for Delaware, South Dakota, Montana or West Virginia."

TommyMarin commented on Wednesday, Mar 12, 2014 at 17:12 PM

Add to that windfall the savings made in not having to arrest, prosecute, and jail marijuana users and the savings will run into the 10's of millions if not the 100's. And that not even counting the loss in potential income earnings by those saddled for life with a "criminal" record for indulging in a victimless pastime that even according to our president and Michael Botticelli, the deputy director of the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy, have admitted is safer than alcohol and tobacco. http://tinyurl.com/krpe3b8

"A new report from the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice adds to the growing body of evidence that legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana does not lead to any number of doomsday s c e n a r i o s envisioned by legalization opponents. Looking specifically at California, where full marijuana decriminalization went into effect on Jan. 1, 2011, the report finds that "marijuana decriminalization in California has not resulted in harmful consequences for teenagers, such as increased crime, drug overdose, driving under the influence, or school dropout. In fact, California teenagers showed improvements in all risk areas after reform.""

States with medical marijuana laws saw decreases in suicide rates, drops in drunken driving, fewer drunken driving fatalities, declines in heavy drinking, fewer painkiller overdoses, and lower teen usage rates.

This new study took things further; today these products aren’t being smoked [in a way] that the product is carbonized and there’s ash."
