With a pocket full of aspirin, I gather up my every day--SFA/Beacon in the Darkness
I live in Massachusetts. We did a pre vote to see how many people would vote for it and 83% voted for it. Medicinal marijuana not legal. Now they can pass it at any time they want before November 22 which I dought they will. November 22 is when it goes back to public vote and will definitely pass as our pre vote was 83%. It was the exact same thing that happened with decriminalizing up to a oz of weed in MA. They didn't pass it but when it came time to vote on ballot the people passed it. I am glad we have decriminalized it but I really cant wait till it is medicinal it helps me a lot with anxiety. Only thing I am wondering is would they let someone prescribed medical marijuana smoke on probation (I am currently on till next march). I don't see why they wouldn't as its not controlled by the feds.
Not nearly enough. I think that it should be legalized on a federal level and in all 50 states. Just like cigarettes- must be 18 to buy and legal while driving. Hell It wouldn't even bother me if they illegalized alcohol just to legalize marijuana. It's much safer to society and in my opinion healthier.
Personally I think all drugs should be legal and there should be better information given about them. Putting weed and heroin in the same schedule and telling kids how dangerous they both are just leads to kids trying weed for the first time (don't lie, you all did it at some point), and realizing they've been lied to. Now they wonder if they were lied to about harder drugs too. That's from a social standpoint. From a fiscal standpoint, if the US legalized and started taxing drugs, our budget deficit would disappear in a matter of years. I've said it a million times, if people need or want drugs, they're going to do them. We can either legalize and profit from them, while controlling quality, or continue to fight this silly 'war' that obviously hasn't worked in the three or so decades since it began. Talk about a quagmire!
6 mature plants grown well is a very good amount of weed.
I used to live in Ca and grew my own. It is possible to get 6 inch starter clones for about $9 ea or plants 2/ 1/2 ft for about $30 which were the better deal. If you got them in late summer they would grow for about 1 1/2 month and be 4" and start to flower. It is easily possible to grow all of your own and enough for 2-3 friends.
So you can have a good high quality supply for very little $.
Also possible to grow a small crop in a closet.
I had a growers certificate that I framed and proudly put up on the wall.
In Ca it was easy to get a Dr letter, but about $100. Any reasonable reason was Ok. Like: It helps my pain, back, neck any where, helped me relax, helped appetite, sleep etc.
Pot worked like a charm for an elderly friend that had never smoked. Suffered from splinter headaches and no medication worked. I scored him some medical grade and it works 100%.
Things aren't going to get better for chronic pain sufferers until the government makes the medical profession content itself with the sick and dying that can no longer make use of their legs to get help.
Federal law and state laws differ in this much like they do with alcohol. It is simple, compare it to the 60's and 70's when the feds said raise the drinking age from 18 to 21 or we pull highway funds. They cannot regulate it weed, they know it, therefore it can't be allowed to be legal ever. If you read the constitution, state law can trump federal law and the states can win and kick out the feds. However, they will not do it due to funding. I am in Texas and half the budget is for federal mandated programs they either poorly fund or force Texas to fund on our own to keep them afloat so the Texas gov't doesn;t argue. The other reason is those in power and make the laws are still the reefer madness generation. Sure they all "tried" weed in the past but "didn't inhale." (My ass) Weed doesn't even need to be a pain med. It has the same pain med effects as booze, which is deeply rooted in society and easily regulated. Alcohol actually used to be a common pain reliever before many of our pills.
Thank Obama for saying he would not screw with medical pot and instead he ramped up the seizures with his administration's policies. Bush was easier on weed.
