He said they'll probably disband the DEA, as if other incredibly dangerous drugs aren't out there.

I don't care what anyone says, pot changes a person's thinking ability. They may get along fine while they use it but it's not the same as if they stop or if they had never used.

I think most of us know someone who never quit smoking pot, and can see what has happened.

and the same could be said of alcohol however the victims would likely be significantly higher. I don't smoke but if it were legal I probably would occasionally. Just because something is legal doesn't mean its good and vice versa.

Interesting - He was interviewed last night on NPR. They asked him "Will you be moving to Washington or Colorado soon?" His answer... "Yes,both."

I know people who never should have started. When I worked in a mall, the local burnouts would come into the store and waste our time because they couldn't keep a string of thoughts together for very long. We'd ask questions and get completely blank, vacuous stares.

That's it in a nutshell.

I am on the legalization side from an economic perspective. Country spends too much money investigating, prosecuting, and incarcerating people for smoking and distributing pot while others are making millions growing it in other countries and selling it in huge quantities to main distributors. There are people in federal prison with life sentences for growing plants. If you look back in history the same tales are told about alcohol - about not being able to keep thoughts, ruining peoples lives etc. There's a great documentary PBS put on.

Alcohol and pot - both will get you in lot's of trouble...and ruin you. Hopefully from an economic standpoint the monies that used flow out of Colorado and Washington will now stay there in the form of tax revenue.

On the flipside the thugs who used to sell drugs there will have to make an adjustment. So from the other perspective we may have an economic impact from increased sales of more potent drugs.

From social perspective - losers will always be losers unless they choose to be part of society. Those people will choose bad behavior and drugs if they are legal or not.

I'm going to read the law. I hope any of you here that are lawyers read it as well. My fear is that some liberty has been chipped away at.

My .02...
