Nice touch.

I have known and conversed at length with 1/2 dozen women who have been raped.  

Perhaps you are not aware of the full epidemiology and the total social costs of alcohol?  Alcohol is one incredibly nasty drug with a disproportionate amount of the costs falling on women.

That and I do assume that if women are smarter than men, it is not by much.  If I observe male voters endorsing self-loathing policies, I fully expect women voters to also endorse self-loathing policies.  Sometimes the same ones, sometimes not.

Now, I could be wrong.  Maybe women see weed as the enemy of a strong work ethic.  Or as a good excuse to lock up a lot of non-white folks in prison.   

British Columbia woman might have a different take; there is now a shooting every three days in Surrey, British Columbia.    The RCMP claim that most of these shootings are narcotics retail market driven.

Let's be clear about who American women are and what they want.   Attention, love, children, family.

Think about domestic violent abuse.   Once again alcohol is the domestic abuse drug of choice.  

Think about it from the woman's perspective:  "Well we fell in love during a drunken stupor so with the good comes the bad."   

Or maybe the choice is seen as between a couch-potato marijuana stoner and an obnoxious drunk.  The reefer smoker could be perfectly happy alone working on hobbies, projects, art or simply vegging in front of some kind of monitor.    No attention in that case.

The drunk is much more likely to engage with edgy, entertaining prose or even love taps.  

From the perspective of rational American women, it is rather clear why there is no hurry to legalize pot.

Alcohol is popular because it promotes relationship building between the sexes.  It is also the sexual assault and rape drug of choice so the question that must be asked is to what extent do North American women discount sexual assault and rape as simply the cost of doing business in the mating game?

Frankly, I wonder if rape and sexual assault are not so bad after all.  Not a nice experience but perhaps not so devastating as many imply. 

The problem with marijuana is it does not make men open to a relationship.  Alcohol does.  

Love with violence is better than no love at all.  

That and alcohol is 'family friendly' and marijuana is not 'family friendly'.   Automobile and boating accidents have the potential to wipe out families with mercy.  In this department, alcohol excels.

It gets ruined.  Keep it between 225 and 250 and let it go for about 12 to 18 hours in oil or butter.  Sprinkling it on yer pizza is a waste of time unless you like the taste.  Otherwise nothing to be gained, but the taste.

Following popular demand, the growers clip loose leaves off the buds so they look 'tight'.  It is a waste.  Then there is the 'crystal look' which usually means the weed was harvested too early and has insufficient CBD.

There is obviously not just one answer but prohibition was not a great success, unless you were Al Capone.  Also, in terms of determining impairment (especially when related to motor vehicle offenses), there is not (yet) a valid test for pot intake, that is possibly why many law enforcement agencies wish to maintain its illegal status.
