when weed isofficially legsal
BE PROUD WASH ST
weed is worse than drinking yourself into oblivion day after day?
No one has ever died from "weed overdose".
If it were legal in my state I'd smoke it too!
no one has ever died from it (unlike alcohol)
no one has ever gotten high and beaten up their wife
no one has ever started a bar fight after doing a bong hit.
was never my thing. and i wouldn't smoke it, legal or illegal... but i've never seen the point of keeping it illegal as long as any jerk can walk into a liquor store and buy bottles of ... whatever.
You know why it was MADE illegal right Jill? Of course you do.
The Mob was complaining that they'd lost a huge income stream from illegal booze during Prohibition so the US Government GAVE THEM the marijuana trade in exchange for the booze.
See, I could say that the US Gov't worked WITH the Mob and show proof but hey, that would be a "wingnut conspiracy theory" right?
If ginscpy or anyone else like him wanna' toke up it's his business and no one elses. Especially the US gov't, who shows their genius by supporting terrorist Al Qaida in Libya.
actually if you look at use/sale versus enforcement, it's really a race issue. and we're spending far too much money keeping people in jail b/c of weed.
You will never get the monkey off of your back!

Selling weed will still be against the law after Dec 6 in Wash st. It will be legal to posses a small amount for those 21 and over.
not a well thought measure
A bill to set the standards for prosecution for those driving under the influence of drugs is underway as well.
However, "King and Pierce County prosecutors are dismissing more than 220 misdemeanor marijuana cases in response to Tuesdays vote to decriminalize small amounts of pot. In King County, 175 cases are being dismissed involving people 21 and older and possession of one ounce or less. I-502 makes one ounce of marijuana legal on Dec. 6, but King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg decided to apply I-502 retroactively.
Although the effective date of I-502 is not until December 6, there is no point in continuing to seek criminal penalties for conduct that will be legal next month, Satterberg said in a statement."
