Democratic party is the party of restricting liberty -- not Republicans.


Not as far a pot goes in Texas.


Texas is the only exception. They stole SanFran playbook on how they dealt with opium and applied it to MJ.

I'll start growing any thing they will allow with no fees. They previously put a high price on it for the regulation.

And the Golden Boy, Reagan, declared a War on Drugs. While laws against marijuana were on the books before that, it was that event that demonized it to the point that a person's life could be ruined for possession.

But let's not talk about that because it blows up your entire narrative about how the Republicans wish marijuana was legal but those damn Democrat squares get off on it being illegal.


Actually the war on drugs as it pertains to marijuana was declared by Nixon and there is an abundance of information on how it was used to target minorities.

Reagan declaring war on drugs was more driven towards the coc aine situation which was a major problem during that time. Watch the documentaries on this in Florida if you have not already -- very interesting.

I cannot equivocate those two situations and it is dishonest for you to leave out the detail. My narrative remains intact.

lol reeks of desperation.

what's going on?

trotting Kanye out so elaborately. and, now the this. its funny.




Obama didnt even try.


In 2013 there was a drastic policy shift wherein the admin announced that the DOJ would no longer attempt to enforce marijuana prohibition in states which passed marijuana laws nor would it seek to have state laws overturned. (see Cole Memo)

It was that exercise of prosecutorial discretion that pretty much allowed all these states to move forward with their own laws.

And of course the Cole memo was what was rescinded by Sessions in January. Here's an op-ed at Fox from some clown discussing how that was good news:


Reversing Obama era policy, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has given federal prosecutors the discretion to prosecute marijuana traffickers. That’s good news for those who believe in the rule of law. And good news, too, for those concerned about public health and the safety of our nation’s youth.

On Jan. 4, Sessions revoked the Cole Memo, a 2014 Justice Department directive issued by then-Deputy Attorney General James Cole. The memo essentially gave marijuana producers and distributors in states that had legalized the drug immunity for violating federal drug laws.


(he got the date of the memo wrong)

theintercept.com... link from jully so older but covers the topic of the op sort of

Clemency for nonviolent drug offenders became big news following reality TV star Kim Kardashian West’s successful petition for the release of Alice Johnson — a 63-year-old grandmother who spent 22 years in prison for her role in a drug trafficking conspiracy. Although Kardashian West was widely mocked for meeting with President Donald Trump, Johnson went home to her family within seven days of her White House visit on May 30. Since then, some incarcerated people under similar circumstances have reason to hope that their clemency applications might also be granted by Trump.
my father is dying of cancer and things that cant be talked about here are a benefit to him so if its truly legalized it could be quite the coup

This approach means the Dems can take credit for the move since they'll have control of the House.


Are you taking predictions class with Mr. Creepy Porn Lawyer?

I don't believe this is a tactic being employed by Trump. Afterall, he said back in 2015


SPARKS, Nev. -- Donald Trump softened his tone on marijuana legalization on Thursday, saying at a political rally that states should be allowed to legalize marijuana if they chose to do so. Trump reaffirmed that he supports making medical marijuana available to patients who are very sick.

"In terms of marijuana and legalization, I think that should be a state issue, state-by-state," Trump said while taking a handful of questions during a political rally at a casino outside Reno on Thursday afternoon.

It seems like now is a good time to tackle another issue he spoke of during and after his campaign to become POTUS. And I agree, anti-Trumpers will find some way to discredit the efforts to lesson the criminality any way it might be enacted by the Trump administration, even on issues they are in favor of.

If only Trump would walk door to door handing out free marijuana fatties rolled in $1,000 dollar bills served on a platter of pure gold....then and only then might the left be civil to him, at least for a day.

That memo is cute, and you just explained why it was largely ineffective in how easily it can be reversed. The fact of the matter is the law needs to be reversed at the federal level.

Lets not ignore that the DEA has the authority to both schedule drugs and enforce the law, which I personally believe is an unconstitutional violation 9f the separation of powers. And snce when did prosecutors not act with discretion anyway?

I wish the creepy porn lawyer wouldn't make predictions about the creepy son of the creepy pornstar-cheating-with-and-paying-hush-money-to president.

The funny this is how the "family values" would be morality police on the Right think representing a pornstar is somehow a bad thing but cheating on your wife with one is a-okay as long as you're the cult leader.

I'm not sure I can think of any people I have known in life who have not crossed the threshold of immorality. This does not mean those people lack values so much as the strength to always do what is right by the system of beliefs to which they subscribe.

I have never understood how pot is seen as worse then alcohol and requires such control. May be tobacco industry is worried about competition.

"Cute" or not, it had real world effects. The policy shift significantly advanced the ball and without it, we wouldn't be where we are today. But yes, we've been way past time for legislation at the federal level to end marijuana prohibition.
