PINK:MJNA lots of volume, closed near open, but should jump if one of the three states pass their laws (Washington & Colorado [possible] and Oregon [unlikely]). I'm waiting for a bump in a different penny stock to cover my transaction costs to buy 10k shares.

We'll have Medical MJ here soon - i can't see big resistance to our bill up next week. (Although this IS the state that voted FOR seatbelts, then AGAINST seat belts and then was the last state to VOTE them back in. LOL I think we were the last state for Right on Red, too. So we could be way behind the doobie-curve here.)

You just need it "prescribed."

I don't know how different the law in CA is to the proposed MA one, but my brother was in LA last spring and said that Venice Beach is now MJ-Heaven. It's one Rasta guy after another with a lab coat and an "office."

Medical my aunt Sarah. Either make it legal or illegal. Sheesh.

I think Colorado has a real good chance on passing it next week. I wonder how long after the other 17 medical Marijuana states will put bills to make it legal interesting times.

It would hurt the "anti" drug cartels here in the US even worse, which is why laws are legal, for now.

However, the effect of legalization in some states and not others will result in a massive marijuana industry in those states, since they can then safely grow it and export to the illegal states without crossing any international borders. There is no random search when you cross from Colorado to Kansas. The effect will be double-edged. It will hurt the Mexican drug dealers a lot more than this study guesses, but it will increase the supply of marijuana and decrease the cost, in the states that don't legalize it.

I believe some growers grow low THC, high CBD strains for medicinal use.

I don't know anything about it beyond that though.

Hands down stupidest debate in our country right now.

Anyone with a Reagan era mentality on weed is a fing moron. Period.

Only reason its still illegal is because the people in power still contain elements of the reefer madness generation. You know, the uneducated paranoid extreme right bible thumpers.

Same people that ruin the party.

Hey 50 and 60 yr olds, pull your head out of your old ass and get with it.

"Prescribe" rather than "proscribe"...

Guy was shot and killed - with a .40 caliber no less - in my area over the weekend. Part of his double wide was his grow house, and the perps snatched plants from pots as they fled. Integrated hit team - one black one white - per the newspaper.

Would that guy be alive now if MJ was legal to grow, consume, and sell?

How much less demand would there be for law enforcement, lawyers, judges, prisons and guards, bail bondsmen, etc if MJ was legal to grow, consume, and sell?

Just askin...

My recreational drugs of choice are [currently] legal. And I have no desire to branch out.

Of course he'd be alive. The perps would've went to Cumberland farms to buy a pack instead of rob this poor bastard.

The legalization of marijuana would not hurt the Mexican drug cartels one bit, because they would just take over the pot industry in the United States.

Legalizing marijuana is a very, very bad idea for many reasons.
Least of which would be the drug war between the American growers and the Mexican drug lords as they fight for control of the marijuana trade in the United States.

Legalize marijuana and you'll instantly bring all the Mexican drug violence into the United States.

And you are getting ready to post the links to the studies that support this right?
