Well, first, I want to say I am definitely pro-legalization as a personal position. Not only because the war on this, especially as something any
American can grow in our climate and conditions, has been an abject failure but because it has some really powerful uses beyond the most obvious its
so well known for.
Having said that, I think to answer one question on the thread....what would a nation of stoned people look like? It's a relevant question, IMO.
They'd look happy, content and slow to anger. Pretty cool scene, dude!
...they'd also be apathetic..VERY slow to anger, short term focused and generally wondering why people care about crap like what Government is doing
Precisely what the Government legalizing this are doing it for. We ought to moderate the embrace of this as it comes legal and keep perspective. It's
not a golden thing or silver bullet. For every plant to create hemp and industrial products...how many gallons of water that is becoming a serious
problem. Ask California about that, as the illegal cultivation is actually being cited as a contributing factor to water problems in some areas.
....the illegal, not proper growing. Important to note.
I think it's going to happen, but we need to recall it's being done for all the worst reasons by the ones actually DOING it. Tax money, and fat,
dumb and happy people who don't care about what they do afterward.
