Re: War on Drugs Cant Be Won, According to Global Leaders

This could be seen by history as the turning point of the drug war:

Federal government won't block Colorado marijuana legalization - The Denver Post

Quote:
The guidance instead speaks to prioritization of federal resources and lists eight federal priorities that prosecutors should consider when deciding whether to undertake a prosecution. They are:

• Preventing marijuana distribution to minors

• Preventing money from sales from going to criminal groups

• Preventing the diversion of marijuana from states where it is legal to states where it is illegal

• Preventing criminal groups from using state laws as cover for trafficking of other illegal drugs

• Preventing violence and the use of illegal firearms

• Preventing drugged driving

• Preventing the growing of marijuana on public lands

• Preventing marijuana possession or use on federal property
Most of these things are appropriate regulation even once it get legalized

I always figured they would start to ease up on this stuff in O's second term. Just paving the way for full scale legalization in the next 5-10 years.

Research shows Oreos can be just as addictive as drugs - NBC12.com - Richmond, VA News

How is weed still illegal and oreos and crap food are legal and actually addictive, unlike weed?

I think it depends on just how cold the milk is with those Oreos .

Without getting too off topic you hit the nail on the head. Some of the artificial crap in processed foods, HFCS, for example are appetizer stimulants causing individuals to over indulge.

Opinion: Marijuana is safer than alcohol - CNN.com

"Don't believe it could work? In 2009, Colorado's medical marijuana industry exploded, prompting the state to put in place the kinds of regulations I've just outlined. According to CDC data on youth drug use, from 2009 to 2011 -- a time when youth marijuana use increased nationally -- the percentage of Colorado teens using marijuana dropped more than any other state in the country and is now below the national average.

Marijuana is safer than alcohol; let's treat it that way. Adults who would prefer to use marijuana instead of alcohol should be free to do so. Just as significant, the law enforcement resources spent making those three-quarters of a million arrests could instead be devoted to preventing and solving real crimes.

I firmly believe that marijuana should be legal. That said, I went to Colorado in August and was walking through a mall in Colorado Springs with my kids when a couple teens walked by us and the conversation they had went like this. What y'all doin tonight? Oh we're going over and getting high. Linearly laughed out loud and cringed at the same time. And there were more pot shops in Colorado Springs then 7-11s, not exaggerating.

Re: War on Drugs Cant Be Won, According to Global Leaders

I dont get how legal perscription pills kill well over 100 people per day, most due to substance abuse, and yet people worry about marijuana being legal?:
CDC - Prescription Painkiller Overdoses Policy Impact Brief - Home and Recreational Safety - Injury Center

Why isnt congress dragging in pharmaceutical companies and ask what are they doing to stop the abuse of their own drugs that kill upwards of 240 people per day across the country?

Yeah it's definitely disgusting what's going on with prescription pain killers these days. I see the abuse all the time in my line of work. Doctors hand out em out like candy.

Not only revenue, but think of saved cost in our court systems and with locking up people for no good reason. The fact someone could go to jail for possession is redic. Any jail time for a dried plant is cruel and unusual punishment.
