National Legalization of Marijuana

Animated GIFs & Nonsense

Will marijuana become legal nationally or in more than 1/2 (25) states?

It's gone as far as it can and no further legalization will occur. (No change)

The question, however, did not get answered. IF someone were to mail you some edible substances from Colorado, would you actually try it?

Answer the question, Claire!
I appreciate the kindness, but no - and not for anti-drug reasons, I just can't risk the chance of something else getting in my life and liking it and putting energy into it with all the other stuff I have to do. I successfully avoided World of Warcraft because I knew, for me, it would be a timesuck. I didn't avoid trolling Reddit and I struggle to stay away from that shithole. I know myself well enough to know that if I started getting into edibles and so forth I'd spend a lot of money, spend a lot of time stoned and spend a lot of time being unproductive. So it's easier for me to just never start.

I mean, you can still buy weed in those places in Denver if you or anyone else enjoyed that aspect of it.
Nobody has ever purchased weed in "those places", I've never purchased weed myself but know that it's absolutely everywhere. I have no idea where you work but can still confidently say that even if CO was a prohibition state that you could purchase it from half of the people working in your office though the safer route would be from somebody who works maintenance because if they tell on you then you could just tell the HR lady that you smelled alcohol on their breath earlier and she'll believe you because HR people are generally stupid and because maintenance people are generally drunk.

I wish I could get high without having to go to the doctor first. Although it's easy enough:

- Doc, I have a headache.
- Well, let's take a look at what might be causing it.
- I think it's because I get stressed at cannabis still being illegal.

You then high-five the doc and walk out with a weed prescription.

Its even easier than that. Go to website, fill out details, have 1 minute phone chat with "doctor", pay $40, then shop online to have delivered right to your doorstep.

I think I'll go with Jonsey's answer; if weed mellowed me out even more than I am already I'd get nothing accomplished. However, if marijuana was reasonably proven to provide me significant benefits in my medical problems then I'd use it, in whichever form is best for my problems.

This is one of the reasons I'm grateful I have found all alcoholic beverages taste terrible. My family has a history of alcoholism. I shudder to think how I could have ended up like Pinback.

So is that a yes answer or a no answer?

Well, it INCREASES appetite so not really recommended for you. You'd be better off with a stomach stapling or better yet that thing where they take out most of your stomach.

Judging from the lack of a positive response, I think his answer is 'no'

I don't want to put words in his mouth however.....
