    Speaking of anecdotes. LOL

    The 'pot' business is all sorts of things- in three states it is both big business and small business- why do you think that they are all 'disgusting vermin'? Do you think that everyone who works at Coors is disgusting vermin also?

    As for the rest- i know people who belong to pot co-ops, where their members own a ranch and they grow their own. A friend of mine's son is working on a pot farm owned by locals in Southern Oregon. Down the street from me is a medical marijuana shop owned by locals who legally bought out the previous smaller local medical marijuana shop.

    And then of course there must be big time pot dealers- somewhere. But I don't know of any personally.

    Frankly, all of your replies are just your personal objection to pot- you have yet to present a rational, fact based opposition to the legalization of pot.

    We have three states that have legalized personal pot use- the sky has not fallen. Canada will legalize pot- and the sky will not fall. Portugal has decriminalized all drugs- and their drug related problems have plummeted. The Prohibition failed- Prohibition killed people and enriched criminals. Marijuana prohibition has done the same thing.

    Why would anyone want a law that results in more people dying and more criminals getting rich?

    If you're for small government then you have to be 100% for legalization and getting the government out of the issue.

    I have to agree that is the simplest way to reduce government payrolls and need for tax dollars, potentially at multiple levels.

    Your outrage is indeed fake, and imaginary to boot. So, yes, you're a POS with nothing but hyperbole.

    Nobody asked me about Big Brother; I voted against Big Sister the Criminal Crone last November, though. And yes, mentally ill gimps like yourself do indeed need to be told what to do; you're too stupid to get by on your own without harming others.

    But you and other constantly say they were same. Make your tiny little minds. Ah, but you can't you're mentally ill ... never mind.

    The violence caused by scofflaws who fell all over themselves to buy from criminals, and then blame the government for the results? Yes, it is pretty stupid and cognitively dissonant gibberish.

    no, it didn't; the violence associated with alcohol abuse continued to climb, right back to the levels that led many to vote for Prohibition in the first place. Gangland killed each other over more than booze, but you aren't educated enough on the issue to comment on it. Most of the violence was in those cities already long corrupt and gangsters were already operating, for one; mostly the gangsters worked for the Democratic Party machines. You wouldn't know anything about it but Prohibition was already in force in many states before WW I, with none of the Chicago style stuff going on, and besides, Chicago was already a very violent city before Prohibition, so was parts of NYC, Toledo, Detroit, and every other slum ridden northern city, so your argument is just the mumbling of ignorant ideological gibberish. Gangsters killing each other isn't even remotely a reason to do or not do anything.

    Typical stupid argument, based on drugging your brain into oblivion. you're just repeating crap you read somewhere and have no idea what you're talking about. Alcohol and drunkness was a horrible scourge on families and incomes, domestic violence was through the roof as was other violence, which is why it was such an important issue for women and children. They bore the brunt of it, and led the drives to ban it. The U.S. was the drunkest country on Earth, with per capita consumption triple the consumption in Europe. Prohibition indeed lowered that by a huge margin, even as weak as it was, and with the Treasury Dept. Chairman who hated Prohibition and a distillery owner himself in charge of enforcing it, of course it wasn't as effective as it could have been, but it was far better than nothing.

    Yes, because pointing out the facts is always 'rayciss n right wing' stuff. You're the real racists, and we all know it, in complete denial and therefore the major part of the problem, not any imaginary 'alt right' your fake news sources keep feeding you fake narratives about. Keep promoting the gangs and high murder rates, it makes you feel better, obviously. You all must be masturbating like mad over the death tolls in Chicago.

    The point you make does make sense, since I have noticed that the Progressive's almost your the same words and inflections in the wacked answers on the various boards around the internet. At first I thought they were the same person or that the DNC had printed or made a program with retorts for internet board usage.
