    There is a dichotomy of sorts in the US that just gives me pause. Today 8 States and the District of Columbia allow a person to carry some amount of marijuana on their person without fear of arrest or breaking any law.
    Just eight States out of fifty allow you to do that, at the same time all 50 States allow you to carry a firearm on your person. Most allow that if you pay for the permit but still they allow you to carry something designed to extinguish the life of another.
    But something that many people use to enjoy and not a danger to others is illegal and you could go to prison or spend yourself broke trying to stay out of incarceration.

    I find this dichotomy very odd, peculiar, weird, queer,bizarre and more.
    What do you think?

    Look to the big money of alcohol and big Pharma for your answers.
    Corruption for profits sake.
    Maybe big tobacco too.

    They are all about free markets excepting for the things they do and money exchanged in the shadows to regulate it in any and all ways for themselves.
    People have spent decades in jail....for these selfish laws....whils those who lobbied for them and creqated them live the life of luxury and pass it down from generation to generation.
    Laws against pot should have been abandoned before they were even created.

    But guns need to be accessible..imo.......if it weren't for them....they might regulate it so we must pay to breathe air......they already have water being bought for at least $1/bottle.
    The guns play a role in keeping them in check.

    They finger print us for our timeclock now...they run background checks for jobs....
    and we all just go along with it.......I'd like the prints and background checks of all who have made us do this to be able to make a living.......all about lobby and power...and putting somebody above the rest of us.

    I guess they are going state by state to see if legal pot is going to work long term. California just joined 5 other states making recreational pot legal.

    So far so good No major complaints

    I agree with much of what you said but I don't believe the government has any fear of its actions because people have guns.
    When the SWAT teams show up at your door it's all over but the dying.
    What I do see coming is the Police will begin to change minds on some gun ownership. They are the people who have to go face the nutter with a pile of weapons with intent to kill as many people as possible.
    Just seen one on the news someone killed a cop and shot many others.

    Been law in California now for a whole 8 hours

    Give it time
    Was in Vegas it was everywhere
    The panhandling was worse i have ever seen and the oder was all over the strip and throughout the hotels
    The governments will soon over tax and the criminal element will still be there

    The thing being missed here is that federal law takes precidence over stat law, all the DOJ has to say is stop and it's illegal again

    And I will guess that in State Legislatures all over our country it won't be justice that gets their attention but rather how many tax dollars they can reap.

    But if thats what does it more power to them

    The TV news missed out that California it's been legal for awhile now maybe a year? But it is today that Stores with permits will be finally able to sell it. The recreational regulations in Cali is very differant from the Medical Marijuna so the stores that have permits today and maybe only one or two in the whole state have to comply with the new rules.Lots of packaging and dosing regulations totally different from the medical side.

    I think the Feds interfering would be very unpopular
    Not saying Jeff Sessions would not like to jump on it because he would.
    But I think Trump would not want that to happen

    What I do like reading the article about it above is that many of these same States allow you to grow your own. Not many can grow stuff as good as you can buy but at least it's legal

    The police and military were the types who came for the jews in Germany.....they might have been better off fighting to keep their guns.
    And when some extreme polticians comes along here....those cops and military will be coming to round you and me both up.
    It ain't gonna be Donald trump or Hilary Clinton or Bernie rounding us up.

    It always affronts my senses when I see them make laws like: you can't pan handle here, you can't loiter here, no sleeping on the sidewalks, no feeding the homeless.... Just makes me sick to see this is how people think we solve problems.

    We have to guard against populist movements that scapegoat other groups.

    I don't really think it is as popular as the MSM would have you believe
    Sure there are people who think this is the greatest thing ever, but most Americans probably dont give a crap

    Like the really small percentage of gender neutral that was made out to be this huge problem

    Personally i don't care, just don't make it a problem for me, which it will after all government is now involved

    Tariffs equaling income tax revenue would be better.
    that makes America great again.
    lower taxes on stuff will only fake foreign junk cheaper...and our stuff won't be bought.

    We have a media that is run by the Democrat Party, and they won't even report on anything good about Trump. They are just an arm of the Democrat party and the Democrats support the weed bills, so why would you expect our crooked, biased media to report it, even if there was deaths and accidents because of weed smoking?
