    Default Grass Legal For All in Colorado

    Can you believe the residents of Colorado voted successfully to use marijuana legally for more than medical use? It is now legal for any adult to purchase grass for recreational use.

    Now, I see a conflict of interest. If the Colorado state police or any Colorado municipality police see you smoking grass, they can't arrest you. But if a FBI man or ATF man or any Fed sees you trying to get more than a mile high in Denver, can that Federal agent bust you?

    I wonder if that new law allows one to grow his own grass in limited quantity just as we are allowed to brew our own booze in limited quantity.

    Another question of interest now that grass is legal in Colorado: can grass be legally consumed via the various ways besides smoking it in a joint form such as bongs or cookies?

    What a can of worms that has just been opened. I don't smoke but it all makes one wonder about future implications.

    Hope it is a trend. Legalize it, tax it and take a little power away from the cartels.

    Yes, a fed can bust you but historically they haven't and probably won't. And, yes, you are allowed under the new law to grow six plants for your own use.

    This whole thing is going to be a nightmare in my humble opinion.

    Yes.

    As for the drug cartels lining up to pay taxes. Why? They have their own supply lines, and they take 100% of the profits. Comparing to Prohibition is comparing a prune to an apple. The bootleggers where running crap, and at times, crap that could kill you or blind you. Why buy it, when the good stuff was now available again?

    FYI, years ago the EVIL tobacco companies registered names for marijuana, should THE FEDS ever make it legal.

    Reminds me of the conflict between the State of Arizona, and the Federal Government over immigration enforcement.

    Except in the case of immigration, the federal government flat out stated they would not pick up the phone when local law enforcement found undocumented individuals.

    Yeah, must be nice deciding which laws you'll enforce and which one's you won't.

    It will probably be legal everywhere in a very short time since there will be an ever greater demand for tax money. I think it is a bad thing but not everyone sees it that way. Many years ago it was said that they would finally outlaw cigarettes but sell wacky weed. I have lived long enough to see it come true. This country is on the downhill slide to socialism anyway. If the govt. lets them get smoked up they won't see it coming, and won't mind it when it gets here. Just an opinion of course.

    There is a reason why Denver is called the "mile high city"
    Then there is "Colorado Kool-aid" (Coors)

    Head out and burn one.

    They'll take all of this newfound tax revenue, and add it to the lotto revenue, and it will somehow just.....disappear. As it does.

    PD
