Re: “Charges Dropped in Controversial Durham Marijuana Bust; One Arresting Officer No Longer with DPD

I guess Queso is so narrow minded that he does not realized all the negatives he referenced are direct results of it being illegal in USA! There are some negatives to legalization, and stats from Colorado show increases in certain accidents and children injesting but small compared to benefit IMO. An honest discussion is important to craft responsible legal weed regs to end stupid incidents like in this article.

Yeah right gran, the gangs "south of the border" don't exist because we cede the duties of production, distribution, quality control and enforcement of age restrictions to them. You disagree? How about if we get together for a friendly discussion over a glass of bathtub gin at your local Capone's Speakeasy? Shoot me an email to set it up, hey, I'll pick up the tab!

To each his own, I guess. I will never understand what's so great about getting high. Is life so bad that we have to alter our environment to find it enjoyable. I wouldn't brag about being able to grow contraband because that is what it is. This myth that marijuana doesn't hurt anyone...well let's take a trip down to the border and speak with victims of the gangs and cartels pushing weed and other drugs across the border. We can sometimes be selfish and narrow-minded.

Re: “Charges Dropped in Controversial Durham Marijuana Bust; One Arresting Officer No Longer with DPD

As a Colorado resident with 24 legally growing plants I am miffed by what is happening in the southern states. Each day I read about people getting charged with felonies for a few plants. Police invading homes over small amounts of marijuana. Three productive law abiding citizens live in my home including myself. We hurt no one, still go to work, obey the law, pay our taxes. Why continue this policy of going after cannabis consumers. Not to mention all the money it costs.
I just don't get it.

Re: “North Carolina Voter ID Law Is Discriminatory, Federal Appeals Court Rules, Striking It Down

i'm sure there's other redundant protocols in place at the state level - we're quite good at that.

Re: “Coin dealer flips the game on counterfeiter

He was found innocent because he had legitimate paper work that his father had stating these coins were purchased from a mint advertised on Tv years ago. His Father thought he was making an investment in his families future. Little did he know back then they were fake. His father passed leaving the coins and silver to his children. Crazy to think this could happen to any of us. Could you imagine not knowing they were fake? How humiliating.
