Colorado To Vote On Legalizing Marijuana
Last year, the city of Denver, Colorado, legalized the possession of under an ounce of marijuana within city limits. This was more of a symbolic victory, as nothing really changed. The cops were still handing out tickets and taking away sacks under the precedent that state law, which still has marijuana as an illegal substance, supersedes city law.

That could all change this November. SAFER, the organization that pushed the first initiative last year, has once again triumphed in bringing this to another vote. A proposed state wide decriminalization of marijuana will be voted on by the good folks of Colorado when the polls open up in few short weeks.

I know what you are thinking, and yes, it is sweet, but chickens should not be counted before they are hatched. While Denver is more of a liberal city, Colorado itself is a conservative state. This initiative has been on the ballot before and failed. This time it will not be the “hippies” Cartman is always talking about who decide the vote, but it will be the small mountain towns and folks like Mr. Garrison who are convinced that “Marijuana is bad” who will have the most influence.

Nearly the same proposal was defeated by a slim margin in the late 90’s. A lot has happened since then, what with 9-11 and the war in Iraq. It will be interesting to see how the events of the past few years have affected the small town voters.

Another factor that could decide things is the youth vote. Younger people are notorious non voters, and the only thing that is for sure here is that this initiative will either pass or fail by a only a percentage point or two. The turnout for the 18-24 year old age group could provide just the push Mary Jane and her merry men are looking for.

Also there is the possibility of a major terror attack taking place before the vote. It is hard to tell how that would affect things. On one hand it might make people realize there are much worse problems we need to be spending our money on than marijuana, while on the other hand it might also be the catalyst to enforce stricter laws on the American public for “our own good”. One can only speculate at this point. The next few months will tell the story only as it unfolds and not a second sooner.

Until then, I am going to smoke this big pile of weed I got on my table while staring out my window at the great Rocky Mountains, not giving two shits about the man or his stinking law.

Can't the Feds still come in and raid like they do on medical marijuana in Cali?

Isn't it amazing that the justification used to continue marijuana prosecution in Denver is exactly the opposite of Denver's justification to arrest those who exercise their rights to bear arms.

Rick Stanley went into detail on one of his recent shows, explaining how Denver claims the right of "Home Rule" in order to disregard the Colorado Constitution, as well as recently passed state law affirming the right to bear arms, by continuing to arrest those that exercise that right.

This is a double standard. "Home Rule" cannot be claimed in one instance yet ignored in the other.

In my opinion, "home rule" is unlawful. The powers not vested to the federal government by the Constitution are reserved for the states, and the people, respectively... not to any "municipality".

Here's what the marijuana issue comes down to: government has no authority to interfere with the unalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
&Having raised the earth's temperature 1 degree Fahrenheit in the last three decades, we're facing another increase of 4 degrees over the next century.

Forget guns, why is alcohol and tobacco legal?

alcohol is addictive, cause a lot of family abuse and disfuncionality, car accidents, liver cancer and its still legal.

Tobacco is also addictive, causes lung cancer, secondary smoking also causes health problems to others and it doesn't even get you high!

Cannabis on the other hand is not addictive, it eases pain, it makes calm so you are not prone to outbursts of anger and I'm sure there alot of good effects from it.

the only bad effects would probably be a chance to get cancer or it gets you as some say as a gateway drug

gateway drug.. that's balloney I think.

I've been smoking for over 12 years now, and not once have I felt the slightest urge to sniffing a line o' powder or stuff some needle in my veins.

The situation that màkes it a gateway drug is when the guy selling the weed àlso sells hard stuff. (which is the case when it's illegal, this does not happen in, for instance, dutch coffeeshops)

And he's all friendly, all buddy buddy, and one day you stick around a bit to roll a blunt and he says like 'naah, my treat, here, try this....'

I believe this proposal does not stand a chance.

I bet a lot of the people who have to vote have allready been contacted by HS to tell them their theory about how drugs help terrorism. which in effect, it partially does generate the funds for CIA's black ops so in that respect they may be right.. they do just about control cocaïne after all, but I doubt pot is in that position.

the world'd be a lot better place if a lot more people would smoke a blunt now and then.

My theory about criminalizing marijuana is because you as a consumer can grow it yourself, which makes it impossible to tax or to make any profits by the big companies. Unlike alcohol which is hazardous if its not made professionally and bad alcohol could cause blindness and death in some cases, just like cigerattes are also controlled by the Philip morris and british american tobbacco...but Marijuana they can't control its market atleast thats what I think.

It's interesting you say that because I smoked weed for awhile and I always felt everything was wrong, but I never looked into it very much. It wasn't until I got older and did mushrooms that I really started searching for answers and I still feel that mushrooms broadened my horizon more than any drug I've taken. I was smoking pot the whole time though and haven't stopped:DEven grew my own for awhile. Anyways it might just be that I got older and not the drugs at all, I really have no idea. Could of been Pluto for all I know. Still the mushrooms maybe me believe in anything that and a great book called A Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy:)

hehe. i think it had something to do with the drugs! the gateway, not to other drugs, but to knowledge! awesome. yeah i tried growing my own but it didnt work too well..:(i havent done shroomz yet (for some reason i started getting waaaaaay too high just from weed all of a suddon one day. like other place of existence-type high. no joke. thats when i noticed everything. if i take more than like two hits, oh shit... lol). but yeah man thats awesome. i love hearing how drugs have opened the minds of others as well. keep it up!

i know people like to say stuff about taxes, but come on, the new world order has greater reasons why drugs are illegal than some taxes! its all about surpressing freewill and knowledge for these people. and they must be eliminated.

Personally I think it's illegal to make them money. Taxes might make the government money, but that's all open on the public record. Drugs create tons of money for CIA/MI5/Mossad trafficing in mostly herion and cocaine from the Golden Triangle area and Afghanistan. It also help control population because they will be too busy being addicted to hard drugs to do anything, such was the case during the opium wars in China when Britian invaded and pushed a bunch of opium. That set back China culture and society by centuries in my opinion. One final factor in control is that they get to arrest the low-level grunts and the users into prisons that they are starting to privitize and make billions of dollars off of which is our tax money. It really is set up in the perfect position of control and money for forwarding their agenda, which is why I don't buy commercial weed anymore. I grew my own for awhile though I can't right now or I look for homegrown. Anything that looks like "brickweed" or just regular commercial I won't touch. But that's also because I'm kind of spoiled due to having my own. It's really superb growing your own:D

ya. i dont think mine is off a brick. ehh who knows. i know its sum 1 hittta quitta stank bud thats for sure lol. ahhh can u smell it from here? i bet u can!:)yeah no doubt man. the NWO makes most of their money from drugs. its a shame that they use all the drugs they want and then bust us to keep their prison planet strong, while at the same time giving them the right legally search and TAKE anything they want from just about any amerikan. not only because the majority of amerikans smoke weed, but because they can plant anything they want on anyone.

man just wait until there is a camera covering every inch of amerika. how will we smoke weed then? is this really what it all comes down to!? shiiiiit we must defeat the NWO scum!

Colorada's law is tame compared to Nevada's. They're both going to vote in November I think. Nevada's will set up places to buy marijuana even.. :LOL: Here's a quick Q&A on the Nevada law.




Quote:Why should I vote for the marijuana initiative (Question 7) this November?

Question 7 provides a sensible alternative to Nevada's current marijuana laws, which do not work. Why do we say our laws don't work? Because anybody who wants to use marijuana currently is. What we're proposing is removing marijuana from the criminal market -- where it finances the activities of violent gangs and drug dealers -- and putting marijuana into a tightly regulated and controlled market, where we can tax it and place sensible safeguards on its sale.

Drug dealers don't card, but once Question 7 becomes law, everyone who sells marijuana will.


What does Question 7 do?

Question 7 would allow for the possession and sale of up to one ounce of marijuana by adults ages 21 and older in the state of Nevada. By removing marijuana from the criminal market, Question 7 takes money out of the hands of violent gangs and drug dealers and taxes it. Half of the tax money would fund state-sponsored alcohol and drug treatment, while the other half would be earmarked for the general fund, where it can be used for education, fixing the roads, and other expenses the state faces.

Question 7 institutes reasonable safeguards on who may purchase marijuana and how marijuana is sold: Only state-licensed shops will be able to sell marijuana. The shops cannot be located within 500 feet of a school or house of worship. No place that sells alcohol will be allowed to sell marijuana -- nor would gas stations, convenience stores, grocery stores, casinos, or dance halls, and you’d have to be 21 years of age or older and show valid ID to even enter a shop. Finally, Question 7 doubles the penalties for giving or selling marijuana to a minor, and it doubles the maximum penalties for killing someone while driving under the influence of marijuana, alcohol, or any other drug.
