    I heard a snippet of her in passing and she was not too thrilled about it and something about the problems it will produce........

      is an reefer mad talking point.

      What problems, exactly?

      With marijuana LEGAL cops no longer have to waste all their time arresting 850000 americans a year for fucking nothing.

      That is going to free up a fuckload of time for them to DO SOME REAL WORK.

      it will also likely lead to numerous layoffs as a HUGE part of the judicial system is clogged with marijuana 'crime' that will simply DISAPPEAR once sense is restored: they have already cleared the books in washington State and I imagine Colorado is well on the way.

      What problems???

      Alcohol fuels most of the problem conduct in America.

      And then there is WALL STREET! Plenty of real crime there. MArijuana hasnt hurt America but the assholes on Wall Street sure have.

      No...really. What fucking problems will this create???

      Marijuana legalization SOLVES problems - it doesn't create them.

      Republicans create problems.

      Anybody tells you legal marijuana causes problems is a dumb motherfucker or a politician, or both .

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      because I am Libertarian in nature, even though I do support bigger government for financial planning.

      With that being said, it seems as if the democrats are just as statist as the republicans when it comes to certain things.

      95% of all life forms that once existed on earth are now extinct. It is only a matter of time until the Republicans follow suit.
