More dumbing down of America. They are going to legalize mj in every state, just a matter of time. But like everything else they are using cancer patients as the excuse, ie; sell the public on the benefits and the humans will clamor for more. We have to keep our eyes open and look at everything being pushed our way by the media. Meanwhile people are asking where all of the stupidity is coming from, duh.

I don't agree with anything that mario's boy says or does, pot should of been legal years ago but powerful pharmaceutical company's and of course the police would not stand for it. and NYC just think of the money they would loose on stop and frisk arrests and fines
never been to the Netherlands, and don't know what "downtown" looks like, but we bet the "window shopping" and entertainment is first rate, after all entertainment in Dunkirk consists of watching sea wall crumble, and out house mall on the way to the pier/dock to view the soon to be de-funk power plant

Judeye please tell me you are not serious? We already have a abundance of problems around here without a bunch of potheads(legally) running loose. Do you have any idea of what that crap does to the brains of young people as far as development goes? Have you been by chance to Holland/the Netherlands? Yes I have. You think downtown Dunkirk looks bad,"you ain't seen nothing yet"!

(cont.) ...can convict solely on the results of the test.
Refusal to submit to a blood test is an automatic one-year revocation of one's license.

A Yale study using real-world data from auto accidents indicates that a drunk driver is approximately 10 times more likely to cause a fatal accident than a stoned driver. But epidemiological studies show that drivers with a blood THC level of more than 10 nanograms per milliliter - about half a joint - are far more likely than sober drivers to cause an accident.
With recreational pot now legal in Colorado, if a driver is pulled over and suspected of being under the influence, after the standard field sobriety test there’s no breathalyzer, rather a trip to an area medical center for a blood test.
The blood test is designed to tell how high a person is at the moment, not whether they have been using pot in the last several days or weeks like urine tests used by some employers. A blood test will measure active THC in the bloodstream, while a urine test only measures a metabolite of THC.
If the test returns >5 nh/ml of blood, a Colorado jury can convict solely on the results of
then there is the question of the oldest profession, job opportunities and tax revenue is un limited

Sorry but I think it should only be available for those who need it for medical reasons. It should be prescribed just like any other medication by a doctor. If you are high on MJ and driving like you are drunk should the cop let you go because it's MJ or arrest you for driving while high on MJ?? Sorry but I don't think booze and MJ are the same. Another question should they make all drugs legal cocaine and all the others?

If in fact it helps those that are suffering sure. No to recreational use,we already have enough people driving under the influence and I sure wouldn't want someone working on my brakes that smokes that crap for fun.

Personally, I don't like the effects of marijuana (I didn't inhale ;), but I do believe that pot should've been legalized long ago, same as booze. Supporters can hide behind pot's "medical benefits", but the only reason it's now being considered is revenue, the same reason many states have changed its view on gambling. Funny how social/moral/legal issues are reconsidered when new revenues for the state can be raised. I guess prostitution will just have to keep waiting.

Juddeye, you are correct as to marijuana was made illegal. Race reasons, but you ignore why we had the minmimum wage and gun control laws enacted, the same reason. Racism. You support both so you just called yourself a racist in a way. . The MJ thing was on PBS and so was the gun laws. The minimum wage is in history books.

Why so limited? Why not legal for any adult to use for any reason? Why not regulate it like we do alcohol and tax the heck out of it? Did you see the projected tax revenues that Colorado expects to gain from pot in that state? Not to mention the huge savings not only in money, but in people's lives, if we kept pot smokers out of our prisons. Just think of the number of JOBS legalization could create. Yes, expand the legalization to include every adult for any reason they choose.
By the way, you might want to look into why pot was made illegal in the first place. It had NOTHING to do with the plant itself. Everything to do with RACISM. Look it up...
