    I am afraid lot of people are way too comfortable to jeopardize their own comforts to even consider helping those who can organize people to get rid of tyrants. The Tea Party has done a fair job at it to a degree so far but they could be ambushed still and derailed if they are not careful.

    We've been stuck in Iowa since we were stripped to the bone so I have not kept up on other states well.

    I checked California's failed economy about ten years ago. Just a wild guess but it is probably a lot of their long term financial planning that has the problems. Most states can't overcome their retirement fund problems. That is also what has been taking out a lot of these cities along with their unfunded and unpaid bond issues. It will generally fall back to some corrupt administration policies and banksters/fund managers too. See that is the problem with just getting rid of things like the GMO's, big pharma and big agra policies. There is too much invested and if they legislate these things into oblivion immediately it would wipe out a lot of state retirement funds. The 2008 financial crash gives you an idea what can happen if things are not planned out well. That crash was known to be coming prior to 2000. The legislators in D.C. ignored the corruption and went full throttle with bs claiming it was going to be helping the people. Banks floated paper knowing what they were doing and only kept what was insured with federal funds. My case was the bank had the courts falsify transcript even and they wiped us out, made sure through the corrupt courts here that we could not even sue the manufacturer for purposely destroying my equipment plus they collected more than they were entitled to from SBA. No one has been willing do a f'ing thing about it even today as people make up more fraudulent crap like bogus property deeds on our property. The whole system is corrupt from top to bottom and bottom to top. Then when I was covered in caustic chemicals at work while trying to start over again those same SOB's were going to let me die. They lied and covered up and did everything possible to keep me from getting any help. Hell some of them are still wondering why I am still alive today and talk about getting an education the hard way.

    You are right about the part if people do not take a stand for liberty and the freedom to make choices. Hopefully they won't do it all in a stupid manner.

    Other than driving, which I already said should be treated like drunk driving, what danger do they pose?

    The only thing I say to the stoners is, take Uber.

    I don't have time to look into this personally, but I might suggest looking into how businesses in Alaska handled the legal/insurance issues of pot use on the job up here until it was made illegal in 1992.

    As I recall we busted people for DUI when stoned, field sobriety test was proof enough, but idk it's been forever since I paid attention. I'd quit smoking it before it was made illegal and I was never comfortable driving while stoned so I never did it and kind of never looked much into it past when I quit.

    yea you are.....tipsey has implied in other threads that if you smoked pot 40 years ago,but havent smoked since you are an addict,thats the mindset of those who think "Reefer Madness" was a documentary on pot use and its effects.....

    Well I can guarantee you that I'm not addicted, I quit in 1991 after /heavily/ partaking for 4-5 years. I haven't even thought about getting stoned since I quit.

    If you want to talk about addiction, lets talk about something legal; smoking, I picked that shit up and now I think I'll need drugs to drop it. :/

    I smoked pot every day from the time I was 18 until when my first child was born at 23.

    Then I quit. Ijust didn't smoke it anymore. I took one hit 10 years later and decided I no longer liked the effects, never touched in the 25 years since.

    There is nothing even remotely addicting about pot.

    Tobacco, now THAT shit is addictive. I went through legitimate withdrawals when I stopped smoking.
