    who risk imprisonment and losing their licenses for a quick profit.  It is to the advantage of all dealers to weed out these few bad apples

      medical marijuana clinics and we'll hear their fucking bullshit reasonings.

      Americans seem to think that marijuana is a bigger threat to them than guns.

      And they could not possibly be any stupider.

      And that goes all the way to the top, if stupid decisions are being made.

      Which they are.

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

        medical weed is ignored as the feds exert their power over the states, in this case asserting federal laws on weed trumps state laws.  Heck the IRS even disallows business deductions for the clinics on the grounds they are a criminal enterprise (BTW ever seen an infrared photo of S. Cal?  the amount of weed grown on public lands with impunity is staggering)

        •  Ronald reagan did with marijuana research (5+ / 0-)

          what the NRA did with gun violence research: deep-sixed it.

          Since the early 1980s NO federal funding has been used to search for good applications of cannabis. Only research to find bad stuff was authorised.

          Even today - in the 21st Century - it is still so banned its virtually impossible to study.

          The purpose is clear: thwart anything that interrupts the propaganda stream.

          Same with eliminating gun violence stats: that seems to be a basically evil maneuver: we dont want people to be able to show how deadly guns are.

          Can't show how positive weed might be, can't show how bad guns can be, both clearly GOP policies and SOME cannot see the parallels - perhaps even brag about their lack of dot-connection..

    •  The ATF needs a lot more agents to (4+ / 0-)

      enforce any gun laws.  This Republican House, even if a modicum of gun control legislation passes, can - and no doubt will - refuse to appropriate enough money for enforcement.  It's the deficit, you know.
