  •  the federal government (8+ / 0-)

    has said that under "federal property" will stern consequences be applied.

    Things are changing.

    Some pot groups are optimistic that things will change in a second term.

    •  i suppose they could crack down on hikers (8+ / 0-)

      in the National Forest and skiers at resorts with federal leases. that would go over well.

      that'd show us for sure. maybe then we'd quit our wicked ways and become productive citizens.

      it is beyond the time to turn this matter over to the states. it is not the time to escalate the 'war on drugs' in any way shape or form.

      i guess everything is at it should be. this showdown will bring legalization to the forefront and should have happened a long time ago anyway. my gut tells me it will be productive and the voters will prevail.

      •  I think the Fed. land part is to combat growers. (2+ / 0-)

        The impact growers have on the ecosystem in federal lands is very distructive and in some areas, quite significant. Add to that, the risk of harm to an innocent hiker by accidentaly stumbling into a grow area, and I could see why they want to be clear about enforcement in national parks.

        Now, I'm not saying that they won't give someone problems if they're caught with a dobie, but I think it's more of a political statement as well as a land protection statement.
