But how much of this is also related to powerful people (I am not talking about drug lords) controlling the flow of drugs,the govt funneling the money that all these police departments get for fightiing the never ending drug war.
Oh...I'd venture to say a whole heckuva lot.

And let's not forget where the money came from to fight anti-communist forces in central American in the 1980s.

At least they put it to a vote. That is what America is all about. Let the people say if they want it or not.

I say the weed will never be voted into legalization. Too easy to make money off of it illegally.

wonder why there is a spike at age 42? is that when you start finding your college kids stash ? lol

That's probably when you figure out that your kids are pot smokers, they figure out that you used to be a pot smoker, and then parents and kids light up together.

I don't smoke pot, but TONS of upper-middle class people do. TONS of people that vote as well. (at least in Austin (and San Jose), they do. :D )

I work with a bunch of people (I'd say out team is about 75 people or so) who make 85-200k a year - I would say that there are maybe 5-6 who DON'T smoke pot on at least a once-in-a-while basis. More than 75% are weekly (or daily wake-n-bake) guys. If an outside polling team asked everyone at work I would bet we would get a 30%-ish return, or less. Stats like the ones posted are woefully inaccurate and certainly have no credibility to anyone with a brain and the ability to reason.


Legalizing marijuana is a freaking no-brainer. Taxing the ever loving fudge out of it makes the fiscal side of me tingle -- lower property taxes, hotel taxes, etc ... yes please. More power back into the hands of local farmers? check. We could go on and on and I don't smoke.

I think they should make Jazz illegal since it leads to drug use.

Quality movie. You know they've done a remake?
LOL. Yup...I bought it even. The new one is a musical and it's a 2 disc set complete with the original. I bought it for my mother-in-law.

Believe it or not, I found it at the Maxwell AFB Base Exchange.:_rofl:

I personally know a NASA computer programmer (location and department withheld for obvious reasons) who smokes like a chimney. Since being hired on he's fixed software bugs that had eluded other programmers for years!
