Figured I'd go ahead and post a poll and see how you guys and gals feel about cannabis. I myself haven't smoked it too much, but before I enlisted I partook maybe 5-10 times. I personally didn't enjoy the high too much, but the pain relief was amazing.

I've been on a few big pain killers throughout my day for issues related to service. They all make me feel too high, numb, and are very addictive. Marijuana has been a pain reliever that I've recently enjoyed. It has made me feel better than the pills. Those "legal" pills are addictive as ****, and have led to more problems than I'd like. After a long days work I personally would prefer smoking and going to sleep than drinking and taking these pain pills.

Anywho, what are your thoughts on marijuana? Should it be legal, medically only, or stay illegal?

The problem is that the Sherriff's Association is the most powerful lobbying group in the state. While us general citizens agree with "screw em", the state legislators are in their pockets and don't dare oppose them.
Well, as St. Widge suggested, maybe the carrot/stick approach with a percentage going to them would get them on board. Yeah it's a bribe, but if it works, go for it.

Talked with a buddy who knows some folks over in the legislature. His contact says 75% chance this passes so the bribe might work.

We shall see.

It's already going to be legalized anyway. I don't get waiting til 2024. Makes no sense. Hopefully the governor's attempt to move it to July 1 works.

I'm not sure I'll ever smoke it, but, I'd really like to try the edibles.
