I mean the cartels or their ilk. I always figured that the cities where it's legal - like those in Colorado - folks thought, "hey, I'll open a shop!" but the folks who were supplying the state illegally wouldn't just shrug and leave. I'd think they'd want to hold onto their commerce by threatening the naive folks who are new to the business. "You can open your shop, but you're selling our product. Get it?"

The Marijuana Retirement: How My Parents Became Late-Life Pot Moguls

Bill O'Reilly's Pot Lie
oreilly-drugsThe New York Times' marijuana legalization editorial (7/27/14) got a lot of media attention. Unsurprisingly, Fox News host Bill O'Reilly wasn't a big fan of it; and on his July 28 show, he attempted to debunk the paper's position via clever editing.

"Over the weekend, the New York Times called for the USA to legalize marijuana all over the place," O'Reilly declared. "No surprise, that paper's far left on its editorial page, so its stance is predictable." Actually, the paper called for a federal repeal, leaving it to the states to decide what to do about marijuana's legal status. And given that a majority of Americans now support legalization (Gallup, 10/22/13), it's hard to call this a "far left" position.

But then O'Reilly gets to the real issue:

The real reason, the unspoken marijuana play, is contained in the Times editorial, quote: "The social costs of marijuana laws are vast…. The result is racist, falling disproportionately on young black men, ruining their lives and creating new generations of career criminals," unquote.

There you have it. The left believes American law enforcement targets African-Americans for drug prosecutions. Therefore, they want drug sales to be categorized as nonviolent offenses and marijuana to be legalized. It's about race, not drugs.

O'Reilly calls this the "unspoken" issue in the Times' editorial–but it's quite plainly stated in the piece. What he seems to be saying is that the idea that marijuana laws are racist is a myth. (...)

I think I've mentioned before that the state has recently confiscated many of my neighbors property, cut down their trees, and created a long narrow clearing in the woods that runs for miles.

 I like to think that as in the days of my youth sometime when all the big earth raping equipment has moved on to cause mayhem elsewhere, even before their silly little interstate is officially opened that Johnny Hempseed will have traveled up and down large sections of it spreading his joy for the public good.  I have mentioned my strange beliefs to some of my neighbors who like most everyone else around here don't think too highly of the governor's landscaping efforts.

Unless you have some mental disorder, in which case it can help bring about a serious psychosis. Not saying you're wrong generally speaking, but in some cases there is a danger. Some specific brains apparently react rather badly to it.

 
I skipped the link on S's recommendation.  Anyway, we have heard a lot about people who were dosed by eating cookies and things like that at a party being hospitalized.  Not everyone has a good time.  No one should ever be administered a drug without their knowledge at anytime for any reason. 

But I have never heard of anyone checking into a hospital for a reaction to something that they smoked willingly, as long as it was unadulterated in the first place.

In gummy's case, we are talking about someone who is willing to give it a go, knowing that they are in for something unusual or not.  Doing something with full knowledge of what it is you are doing matters.  In the case of mj, a bad reaction would happen the first time and be mild and over quickly if it happened at all. 

These are informed adults who are asking the right questions beforehand and at a good place (here) to ask these kinds of questions.   Pain is such an interesting thing to discuss.  It is truly an individual issue.  Everyone reacts to meds differently depending on things like gender and the amount of pain using the 1 to 10 scale and obviously many more factors.

I'm just implying that in the case of cannibus, anecdotal information usually trumps and is more reliable than the official scientific versions that are bandied about far too often.  Someone who has used cannibus for 50 years is naturally skeptical of any official government report on anything.  The reason being is that they have personally been dealing with government issued lies regarding cannibus for 50 years.  I would say based upon that, the distrust comes honestly when you stand back and take a long look at the big picture.

Thanks for indulging the side trip down the rabbit hole.  Cannibus is one of the gateways to the rabbit hole afterall.  Other than petroleum, probably no other substance has been more abused by politics than cannibus.  Once in the rabbit hole, fact is too often found out to be fiction.

If the slant is that the use of MJ isn't totally harmless because it can cause issues under some very specific circumstances then I'm ok with that. As with any type of drugs there may be serious side effects depending on what might be called a "pre-existing condition" that may not be known at the time. More generally, what works for you (or me), might not work for everyone.

PS: The argument works for peanut butter as well. {#Wink}

 
Ha!! Right? I have never been one of those that thinks anything is for everybody. There is still such a lack of practical knowledge about cultivation/consumption that doesn't end w/a joke about cheeto eating stoners.
