Another milestone is instilled in the dumbing of America.The Strains of this product go from mild to extremely potent with lingering after effects that the whole state will feel before long!

Even if the states forbids other outside sanction potent weed sales, how are they going to know with a urine test?

Stupid liberal progressive Democrats strike once again!

Recreational marijuana became legal to consume and possess in New Jersey last year, but it hasn’t yet been available for purchase. That will change next week when a half-dozen medical marijuana dispensaries are expected to open to all adults over 21, reports the New York Times. According to the Ashbury Park Press, 13 medical marijuana dispensaries have been approved to sell weed to those without a medical marijuana card.

    This why why all the recreation pot smoking minions for The Socialist Democrats keeps growing. Could you even imagine a cop on the beat as a pot user?

    Now short term medical use like for cancer treatment or seizures could be a viable alternative for use if there is no good safe working alternative.

    I dont smoke the stuff, but firmly believe it should be removed from schedule under the federal substance control act and states determine whether it should be used medicinally or recreational.

    Surviving the 60s I have seen far too many people with felonies or misdemeanor convictions for simply possessing a small amount or experimenting with the stuff. Many went forward to live honorable, productive, and professional lives.


    As far as potential to cause * harm to ones self or others by driving or behavior under the influence, consider such a personal responsibility issue. People who do so should be punished severely same as driving under the influence of alcohol.


    Fact is many states have already legalized pot either medicinally or recreationally.

    You cannot accurately measure pot intoxication at this time so recreational pot use cannot be properly regulated at this time.

    Members of law enforcement are drawn from a cross section of the population/community that they are hired to serve. While they should be held to a high standard that really doesn't mean they are better than the average person. I have known dozens of officers and some were functioning alcoholics, some hooked on prescription meds, some bigots and some bullies. In other words there is already room for abuse and the legalization of pot probably will have no discernible effect on their job performance. There are already jobs that can have higher drug standards than what the law calls for, so it wouldn't surprise me that police departments adopt those standards. If you can justify a no tolerance rule for someone operating dangerous machinery, then why not for someone who drives a cruiser and carries a gun? Bob
