Re: “The Cannabis Catch-Up: Troubling Signs for Legal Markets?

Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All-American pastime, alcohol.

Plain and simple!

Legalize Nationwide!

Fear of Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is unfounded. Not based on any science or fact whatsoever. So please prohibitionists, we beg you to give your scare tactics, "Conspiracy Theories" and "Doomsday Scenarios" over the inevitable Legalization of Marijuana Nationwide a rest. Nobody is buying them anymore these days. Okay?

Furthermore, if all prohibitionists get when they look into that nice, big and shiny crystal ball of theirs, while wondering about the future of marijuana legalization, is horror, doom, and despair, well then I suggest they return that thing as quickly as possible and reclaim the money they shelled out for it, since it's obviously defective.

Re: “Vermont Marijuana Legalization Stalls in the House, Fails Again

It's time for us, the majority of The People to take back control of our national marijuana policy. By voting OUT of office any and all politicians who very publicly and vocally admit to having an anti-marijuana, prohibitionist agenda! Time to vote'em all OUT of office. Period. Plain and simple.

Politicians who continue to demonize Marijuana, Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, and so-called "Addiction Specialists" who make their income off of the judicial misfortunes of our citizens who choose marijuana, - Your actions go against The Will of The People and Your Days In Office Are Numbered! Find new careers before you don't have one.

The People have spoken! Get on-board with Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, or be left behind and find new careers. Your choice.

Re: “Pot Shot: Shap Smith's Marijuana 'Compromise' Misses the Mark

Every time there is news of politicians starting a "task force" to "study" marijuana legalization, in reality they are just prohibitionists going to Colorado to try to find "problems" with it.

When they realize they can't find the "Doomsday Scenarios" they so very desperately hoped to find, they just fabricate their own "problems" with marijuana legalization.


So now they can feel confident that they can now deceive the public with the same old scare-tactics and anti-marijuana propaganda they have always used. Because these politicians feel that by now claiming to have "studied" the effects of marijuana legalization first hand, they may appear more credible when trying to scare the public away from marijuana legalization.

Give it up prohibitionists. This tactic will not deceive the public!

The public is no longer as gullible as prohibitionist politicians hope we are.

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching MUCH SOONER then prohibitionists think and there is NOTHING they can do to stop it!

The people have spoken!

Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!

Re: “Vermont House to Vote on Marijuana Legalization After All

Also, we will still be wasting our tax dollars sending police around to ticket marijuana users and wasting police manpower and resources.

Instead of allowing our police the time, manpower and resources to protect us all from real, dangerous criminals who actually commit crimes with victims and pose a real threat to society.

Why else do you think some politicians are so EAGER to "decriminalize", instead of LEGALIZE?

Don't Let'em Fool Us!!!

If you can't purchase it legally, then it isn't legal.

If you have to fear a monetary fine/ticket which if you don't pay and/or show up in court to handle, you then become a criminal with a warrant out for your arrest, and when convicted (yes convicted, as in crime.) you will then be forced into free manual labor and/or forced drug rehabilitation to be used as another statistic prohibitionists love to flaunt about supposed "marijuana addicts", then....No, it's not legal!

This will not suffice! Getting caught purchasing marijuana is still considered a serious "drug deal" and you will be prosecuted for it!

DEMAND FULL MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION NATIONWIDE!

Re: “Vermont House to Vote on Marijuana Legalization After All

Don't be fooled by marijuana "decriminalization" because citizens are still going to be treated like common criminals for marijuana under it. This is what prohibitionists such as Kevin Sabet will settle for.

Citizens will STILL be forced to the dangerous black market and a shady illegal street drug dealer to purchase their marijuana. Getting caught buying it is STILL a crime they will arrest and jail you for. Then, they will also most likely try to FORCE you to either mandatory community service and/or rehab, and if you don't comply, guess what? JAILTIME!

They also fail to mention the additional huge cost of court costs which can range from several hundred to several thousand dollars on top of the relatively small ticket/fine.

If you fail to pay these expensive court costs you will be in "the system" as a criminal. With a warrant out for your arrest and incarceration.

No thanks!
