I'm a little surprised that I knew that those are both actual marijuana strains. The names crack me up sometimes.

Probably, but it'll be way cheaper than it is now and I'd rather that money go to our government and legit business providing jobs than to Mexican drug cartels.

Here is a good documentary (well, I agree with it, so it is true).

It is actually quite informative. Did you realize that your refrigerator was designed for beer?

Such is the logic of the anti gov. anarchist Ronulan.

I must be old. We had home grown, Colombian Gold, Red bud and some I don't remember. A nickel bag was $5 and almost filled a sandwich baggy. Bennies were the latest thing. Rap music didn't exist. Ah, those were the days.

I'll bet those aren't great sellers.

I've never met a marijuana user yet who didn't want the highest THC he could get and/or afford.

Then you've never met a medical marijuana user who just wants to feel better and not get stoned!

Several cannabanoids (sp?) offer medicinal qualities like stimulating appetites in people on chemotherapy, pain management for those with chronic pain issues (no pun intended).

THC is the hallucinogen, and I don't know if that also provides the calming effect that those with anxiety and stress issues prefer, but high THC is usually the abused strains.

I'm not sure it makes sense to label eliminating a blackmarket and bringing drugs under government control as "anarchist."

That's kind of the point. You wouldn't buy 3.2 beer if the regular stuff was available would you?

You miss the point. He doesn't want more gov. regulation.
I think it should be legalized, taxed, and regulated like alcohol and tobacco. I want the black market eliminated and the product sales at least overseen by the government.
The attitude of some of the "Ronulans" seem quite anarchist.

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.
I'm just wondering how old you are ? Do your own research and maybe we can talk.........!

Right, we need more taxes.

The attitude of some big government Romneyians seems quite anti-conservative.

What exactly do you want the government to "oversee"? To verify that if someone buys weed advertised with x% THC that they get x% THC? You want them to make sure that if someone buys an ounce they get an ounce?

Why is it some people feel so incompetent that they need the government to hold their hand for every little thing?

Maybe supervise sales like they do for booze and tobacco so it isn't sold to minors. Just like booze, tobacco and sex weed is an adult thing and the decision to do it or not do it should only be made by adults. It's not the best thing for brains that are still developing.

But as it stands it's easier for kids to get their hands on than alcohol because the people selling don't care who they sell to. Sometimes a little government regulation is a good thing.

We could tax it and use the taxes to open voluntary rehab center. Pardon the pun, but sort of a users' fee.

If beer had healing qualities and I was on my way to work I'd go for Odouls so as not to be impaired.

You completely missed the point.
