“Poll: Americans Favor Legalization of Marijuana 51-44%”

Stock tip: invest heavily in Doritos and Hot Pockets. And it wouldn’t hurt to throw some bones behind whatever that stuff is that Ferris Bueller’s teacher claims takes the red out.

I suspect sandals will be making a furious comeback, as well.

  1. Considering how far gone this country is, getting high might not be a bad way to deal with it in the short term.

  2. Wonder if they’ll tax the shit out of it like they do tobacco for teh childruhns.

  3. The hashish market will be some small compensation from Obazma to the Afghanis nasty ol’ America has kilt. So maybe throw a couple of bucks toward hookas and turbans.

  4. whoa

    Team R needs to get foursquare behind an anti-pot constitutional amendment before they miss a “primo” chance to further alienate young people

    chop chop you guys

  5. Stock tip: invest heavily in Doritos and Hot Pockets.

    I wonder what effect legalization would have upon the SSI Disability system. Or maybe I don’t wonder.

  6. Team R needs to get foursquare behind an anti-pot constitutional amendment before they miss a “primo” chance to further alienate young people

    If by “young people” you mean people who were young in 1969, then yes.

  7. I think the marijuana laws now are as stupid as the alcohol laws were during prohibition, with all the same results.

    Pot should be decriminalized (as opposed to “legalized”) and treated exactly the same as booze.

  8. I’m not against it. Voted for it here in Colorado.

    Not that I use. But I like to have options. And it ain’t like I’m advocating for your “right” to have a medical professional stick scissors in a pre-born baby’s skull and suck it out of its mother whenever that mother just isn’t feeling the whole pregnancy thing.

  9. And yes, I agree with decriminalization moreso than legalization.

  10. I think it needs be stressed, this is definitely a state matter. If the people of Colorado allow it to be smoked in bars, while the people of Utah outlaw the stuff outright, that’s their problem. The Feds just need to acknowledge that.

    California went the way of “medical marijuana”, but the problem is, the feds are still enforcing it’s outlawing, so there is still a lot of criminal activity involved with the production and distribution, not least of which is corruption of the authorities.

  11. A majority of Americans also apparently preferred the current President to the alternative. I don’t put much stock in the opinion of the majority of Americans is what I’m getting at.

  12. 51% is a mandate! Or so I’m told.

  13. What would Bob Costas do?

  14. Bob would suggest that if Belcher has just “smoked a massive blunt” both he and his baby mamma would be alive today.

  15. I also used to be a big fan of Colorado. Now I’m more of a “Ski Arizona” kinda guy. Guess I should try Utah.

  16. Crap, “Ski New Mexico” is what I meant to write.

  17. Forget Doritos and Hot Pockets — invest in Phillip Morris. What do you think their quarterly earning are going to look like when Marlboro Blunts hit the convenience stores?

  18. Crap, “Ski New Mexico” is what I meant to write.

    I love Ruidoso.

  19. Never happen. The feral govt rakes in HUGE amounts of revenue with asset forfeiture/seizures. The amount per year is staggering.

  20. I would probably give it a whirl, if it were legalized, and if my clearance didn’t depend on my abstainance.

    That probably isn’t going to happen during my professional lifetime, though.

  21. You know, I’m fully in the Libertarian camp on this one. I’ve inhaled, years ago of course, and believe me there is no comparison to the way one reacts to marijuana inhaled compared to those who imbibe spirits. The shit made me uncomfortably paranoid. Some react differently I’m sure.

    But alcohol? removes all paranoia, adds some exuberance, and with enough, recklessness. Driving and alcohol consumption pre-.08 (in the ’70’s) got some friends of mine killed or badly injured.

    The reason mj legalization is difficult to achieve? The alcohol industry can’t stand the competition and funds by lobbying all groups (and politicians) who oppose, and how exactly does the government tax a product one can grow in one’s windowsill? That’s the double-bladed sword that has kept an otherwise benign* product underground and illegal.

    *unless in certain individuals it causes paranoiac reactions, of course!

  22. Alcohol’s effects are also inconsistent. It makes my wife unbelievably alert, and me the opposite.

  23. I really didn’t notice any effect on me when I tried weed during my college years.

    My GPA noticed something, but I didn’t.

  24. Well when pot is legalized smugglers/growers will switch to hyper-pot which will STILL be illegal and all the money will be in hyper-pot and we’ll have PSA’s about healthy and unhealthy pot.

  25. pot is good for kids whose drunk ass daddies don’t want anything to do with them and what have slutty moms that dump them on grandma

  26. TMI, chirpyfeet.

  27. pot is good for kids whose drunk ass daddies don’t want anything to do with them and what have slutty moms that dump them on grandma

    Just stare at that for a while, and then imagine what it takes to be the guy who writes things like that.

    I’m guessing: mid 30s, obese World of Warcraft addict, long overdue for a shower.

  28. well you’re wrong hah i am back to pre quitting smoking weight plus i never play games except for at my last job sometimes i played the one with the monkeys and the balloons and i just showered and i have a baggie i can use to take home my unused product OR if i just leave them Clean The World will disinfect and repackage them and send them to dirty third world people so they can smell like the minty lemongrass so that just shows what you know slart

  29. i would like to be a console gamer someday so maybe i’ll pick up a 720 at a pawn shop in a few years except that’s how you get roaches

  30. but anyway yeah i think pot really helped obama deal with his trashy family life it probably kept him from acting out in destructive ways

    too bad he quit

  31. That would certainly explain the President’s tenuous grasp of reality.

    I don’t see how suggesting that the Worst President in Modern History smoked pot is any sort of advocacy for the practice.

  32. I suspect sandals will be making a furious comeback, as well.

    Not for men, I hope.

  33. A question I wish someone had the guts to ask Obama- “How much jail time do you think you deserved to do for the drug crimes you did in your 20s?” and if the answer is none, “Why haven’t you pardoned anyone currently serving time for equivalent crimes?”

  34. Actually, Squid, in 1974(?) Philip Morris actually trademarked Acapulco Gold.
