    OK, so it’s kinda split related. I think it’s an important message to get out. We’ve got a little dude. :doobie:

    Oregon, Washington, and Colorado have an opportunity to legalize the herb next Tuesday.

    Please encourage everyone you know in these states to get out and vote.

    In Oregon, vote yes on measure 80.

    Thanks, CR :doobie:

    It should have passed in California the last time around. Except for the fact that the stoners were too stoned to get off the couch and vote.

    The Colorado one is too close to call, but if stoners act like stoners again, it’ll fail.

    Too bad Obama and his goons will continue to ignore state laws and keep raiding dispensaries. It’s funny how when he got elected everyone thought he was gonna legalize weed and he turned out to be one of the most anti weed presidents ever. Weed will never be legal on a federal level. I mean, if HEMP (not weed) still isn’t legal to grow in the U.S., then weed will never be. It’s nice to see these initiatives on state ballots and seem worth voting for but remember, a vote for Romnutz or Obummer is a vote against weed and a vote for the continual murder of women and children.

    It ain’t legal, till I can harvest it with a combine.

    Woaa! BG, Let’s keep the big stage out of it.

    If the people lead, the leaders will follow.

    Please, positive vibes 😉

    BG – if three or four western states legalize it’ll be like dominoes just like with mmj.

    DC, Arizona, New Mexico, Virginia, Michigan, and a bunch of the small east coast states have mmj now – 19 med states!

    at some point they will be forced to change the scheduling of cannabis, and more and more dominoes will fall.

    i’m sure back when Cali, Oregon, etc. first got mmj i bet no one in D.C. though it would ever fly there… its all just a foot in the door. those who chose to be pioneers and activists will either end up martyrs or the Henry Weihards and Jack Daniels/Jamisons of their craft…

    BG…

    You’re a smart guy… I know this w/o a shred of a doubt. Anybody who rocks ISIS is 100% muy bueno in my book. You know Obama(or any president) is a single man with no true power with a shitload of partisian shit heads in the way. A president is a merely a facade.

    One day the wheels will come off this shit wagon we call democracy, and we can actually build a true democracy… All the underlying back end players and brilliant marketing keep weed illegal so that a majority of our population can stay focused on getting drunk on shitty beer, watching an effin square screen that is meant to mentally numb people, killing each other, or taking a pill to cure everything. Weed is illegal because they know it’s the path to unlocking our true selves.

    Splitters…Pick up a book, get to know yourself. Weed will take care of the rest :doobie:

    Shred, that’s a little insulting, and misses the point.

    I’d like to be able to cold press those seeds. Take the oil and put in my gas tank. Diesel engines were designed to run on bio.

    I’d like to sell the fiber, for building material, clothes, etc.
    I’d like to see plastics made from this oil.
    I’d like to see the plant come to our tables, and be recognized for the valuable food source it is.
    I’d like to see this resource available to our farmers.

    Don’t worry some of those plants a little closer to the homestead, will get a little extra love and attention. :mrgreen:

    Free your mind, and the rest will follow

    There’s a lot more at stake than just getting high

    well gee i sure never meant to hurt anyone’s feelings.

    Hey Shred, don’t get too sore. Just don’t knock it, till you’ve tried it. :thumpsup:

    Oregons measure will allow for the cultivation of cannabis, on any scale. “hemp” is just low grade cannabis. The ability to grow fields of high quality genetics, would be a game changer. Better genetics = more oil and fiber.

    Some of the taxes collected on the sale of cannabis are earmarked for research and promotion of industrial “hemp”

    The focus of the opposition is recreational. They would like to reduce it to kids getting high.

    You know, -Ohhh, what about the children? :nononno:

    Let’s allow police to focus on real problems.
    Create sustainable jobs.
    Free a substantial part of the prision population.

    These tax savings, and taxes generated would have to positively affect any residents living in these states.

    and IMO therein lies the true reason that the government will remain opposed as long as possible: the prohibition of cannabis is probably the single largest individual concept of law feeding the prison/legal industrial complex.

    the loss of law enforcement and correctional officer jobs, the closing of prisons, the loss of dollars into the judicial system – they’re afraid of the vacuum it would create. there isn’t enough real crime (that they could actually catch) for them to all keep their jobs.

    What exactly would be the difference for you when weed is legalized? I assume you can already buy and smoke it now…

    I’ve been living in a country were weed’s been legal for as long as I can remember, but not many people I know smoke the stuff. It’s more for teenagers here I suppose. I’m not agains it though.

    The positive of legalisation in my opinion is that you don’t have to go to some shady drugdealer to get a smoke, you can just buy it in the shop.

    One of the drawback I think is that weed is addictive to some extend. We may have less problems with people addicted to weed here, but there are still plenty of kids who smoke way too much and end up addicted. And because we have such a long culture of growing and smoking weed, the stuff has become way to potent for a kid or beginner. Our local weed is now more than twice as powerfull as when I was young, not a good idea if you ask me.

    Yeah, I will be voting no on I-502 specifically for that reason. If someone partook in even a small morning sesh, they would probably be over the blood limit for the rest of the day, according to an article I was reading but cannot find.

    Does anyone know how they will be doing the blood tests? We always joked that we didn’t want some cop sticking a needle in your arm while semis drive by on the side of the freeway.

    What exactly would be the difference for you when weed is legalized? I assume you can already buy and smoke it now…

    The difference comes from the 850,000 less Americans prosecuted every year for a ridiculous “crime.” Or the millions of taxpayer dollars wasted on arresting, prosecuting, etc. Instead, why not earn money by taxing the industry? The fact that hemp is illegal to grow in this country, yet still legal to import, export, and manufacture, is beyond my explanation.

    and IMO therein lies the true reason that the government will remain opposed as long as possible: the prohibition of cannabis is probably the single largest individual concept of law feeding the prison/legal industrial complex.

    the loss of law enforcement and correctional officer jobs, the closing of prisons, the loss of dollars into the judicial system – they’re afraid of the vacuum it would create. there isn’t enough real crime (that they could actually catch) for them to all keep their jobs.

    Almost our entire prison system is privatized. I don’t think, but someone correct me if I’m wrong, that the government would be losing a ton of funding for the judicial system. Just the assholes who run the private prisons of this country. (Anyone see that Daily Show recently which the prisoners who bought stock in private prisons?) And I can only imagine the amount of jobs created by trimmers to keep America stoned, not to mention all the other endeavors that legalization of marijuana would provide…

    lot of good takes on this issue…but when it some down to the “vote” process, do you all REALLY believe that this ponzi scheme “democracy”lets the peons have a legit say on legislation? How can we actually know that the votes count?? All those suits we see on the the program box we call TV are actually sincere people with integrity? I call BS. But thats my humble perspective.
