    Puff Puff Passed: Colorado legalizes Marijuana

    9 News Colorado is calling a victory for Amendment 64, to regulate Marijuana like alcohol. Hopefully the beginning of the end for our asinine drug war.

    Re: Puff Puff Passed: Colorado legalizes Marijuana

    and in unrelated news, Monster.com just crashed because their servers couldn't handle all of the searches for "jobs in Colorado"
    Somebody over at another sports forum is insane. He's a fat-ass who has nothing better to do than run a site like he's some type of powerful person when everyone knows that he's a worthless person. Banning people with no explanation when they simply ask a pertinant question in a chatroom? He removes 1000's of threads that have real meaning to people without so much as an explanation. He barely has a pot to piss in, so his only shot of exerting power in his whole life is to act like an internet Hitler. The funny thing is EVERYONE talks so much s*** about the guy behind his back in Pm's etc. because everyone hates him.

    PM ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS IN other sports sites - tell them BillsZone is where it's at. BillsZone has a chance to be everything that the other site should have been, but couldn't be because that other guy is so insane.

    Great night for progressives. The entire country should legalize this.

    And for the record, I'm a drinker, not a smoker, but I don't believe that people should be prohibited from doing something just because it's not for me.

    Re: Puff Puff Passed: Colorado legalizes Marijuana

    i smoke weed, i love weed, and i want it to be legal mostly because i think it'll be a huge plus for the economy and it'll clean up a lot of crime. But I also know that weed does more damage to the brain and the lungs than people seem to think and that it's not good to drive when you're super high. So as it becomes legalized, I'd like to see a campaign to educate people on the negatives of weed. And right now because schools and government merely say, "weed is illegal" as the main reason why kids shouldn't do it, kids are doing way too much of it. It's funny but if it's legalized and done the right way, less kids might truly abuse it.

    It's still against the law ( Federal ) but will not be enforced in those states, little doubt. Look at Northern California.

    Your best post ever. I think weed should be legalized and given pretty much the same restrictions as alcohol. Nobody under the age of 18 can purchase it (for the record, I would also lower the drinking age to 18, which is the same as it is in much of Europe). You cannot drive while smoking it or drive while stoned. Lastly, place a hefty sin tax on it and you can get some more government revenue.

    Taco Bell.

    The cops just need to drive around with a bag of Taco Bell in the car and wave it in front of the window when they pull someone over it. If the driver reaches for it, you know he's stoned because there is no way anyone would eat that **** when they're not high with the munchies.

    Some people do seem to treat it like something you can smoke with the same frequency as filtered cigarettes.

    That said, since medical marijuana has become "legal" here in Colorado, they've developed all sorts of alternate means of dosing it. I was watching a news report on them - there are THC drinks, cookies, brownies, and gummies for god's sakes.

    Massachusetts passed a medical marijuana bill:

    Massachusetts passes effective medical marijuana law!


    After years of medical marijuana bills being stonewalled in the state legislature, Bay Staters took matters into their own hands in the 2012 general election and passed an effective medical marijuana law.


    Question 3, the ballot initiative approved by 63% of Massachusetts voters, allows qualifying patients to use and purchase marijuana “produced and distributed by new state-regulated centers or, in specific hardship cases, to grow marijuana for their own use.”

    And there's the problem. As far as I know, testing for weed can only detect if there is pot in your system, but it can't determine when you smoked. I think the best they can do is give you a field-sobriety test, but I don't know how those results would hold-up in court. Maybe the combination of a failed field sobriety test, and the fact that there is pot in your system would be enough for a DUI charge to stick. idk.

    But I do believe that pot is probably less harmful than alcohol, and we spend way too much money on the drug war, so I am in favor of having pot legalized and regulated.
