idahochoice, If you can do so well smoking your joint each evening, why don't you just move to a state where it is legal. You said " For me it increases creativity along with many other attributes. I am the idea guy that can sell an ice cream to a Eskimo." Yes, you are creative. The good salesman can sell ICE to an Eskimo and then a freezer to keep it in. Selling ice cream is not a hard sell, especially if the Eskimo has the munchies from toking up. Maybe you have munchies on your mind.
Legalizing marijuana will cause the most damage to our youth. The easy availability will just increase its use by them. Their immature brains are forever damaged by THC.
If you are so accomplished, why do you need to rely on a chemical to relax. Relaxing is a skill that can be learned.
btw, 70k a year as a Director of Sales means you either work for a small sales organization or your title is just a title.
I am not impressed by the salesman who can sell ice to Eskimos. The best salesman only sell the customer what they need. Using psychology and slight of words to sell something that a party does not need or for more that the product warrants does nothing to add to society. We have too many that serve themselves at the expense of others. Legalizing pot may serve your needs but at what cost to others ?
Marijuana grows are often planted in areas where the amount of water and fertilizer used is excessive compared to the naturally occurring water and organic matter. This water run off pollutes streams that are the habitat and spawning grounds of fish, many that are endangered. If the fertilizer was used at minimum levels with minimal watering to prevent run-off, the ecosystems would not be subjected to such harm.
These same grows trap, poison and otherwise kill herbivorous animals that invade the grows eating the tender buds. The back country has been turned into dangerous war zones. Dangerous to hunters, hikers, and animals.
R Jenkins, I know someone who is living as the damages of pot smoking. The driver was stoned that caused her to suffer a life changing brain injury. She is the damages. There are others who have suffered similar damages.
The slowed reactions create a risk on the job. The memory struggles also create a risk on the job. The lack of a sense of time creates a risk.
I have had an employee who showed up for work just slightly stoned. He was a waste of my money and was fired immediately.
Mick, Again you are dead wrong. The Commerce Clause refers to Congress regulating (not regulations) commerce between the various states meaning Congress is to promote commerce between the states in a well functioning or agreeable form. Regulate back in the day meant well functioning or well trained and equipped. It did not refer to regulations. The same holds true with the 2nd Amendment. A well functioning or well trained and equipped militia (citizen army), being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. Some day, SCOTUS will have to properly rule on the Commerce Clause. Until then, it will continue to be improperly applied.
Trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens to reduce the use of guns by criminals is like telling me to get a vasectomy because my neighbors are having too many children.
Mick, Read Printz vs U S. Plus, Heller did not say government can enact any restriction on firearms ownership. There is a limit to the powers government has to limit gun ownership. The arbitrary limits they are trying to pass are just that. They do not have any justifiable reasons for the limits they want to enact. Assault weapons are not dangerous to the public welfare. Magazine sizes are not dangerous to the public welfare. Pistol grips on long guns are not dangerous to the public welfare.
So, what limitations do you suggest are legitimate ?
Robert Jenkins, Are you smoking pot ? Your wandering post sure sounds like you are on something. Was there supposed to be a point to your post ? I guess you are for legalizing marijuana. I am for legalizing an educational system that has not dumbed down the standards of achievement so that people can successfully communicate their thoughts. I'd also like to see broad use of drug testing so we can know when to take someone's protests seriously.
It appears you never googled Printz and Mack. The important part of the decision says "Finally, the Court found that in those cases in which it has commented on federal direction of state officers, the principle has emerged that the federal government cannot require states to administer or enact federal regulatory programs.  Accordingly, the Court held that the mandatory obligations imposed on State CLEO's by the Brady Act unconstitutional and must be severed from the [p.191] remainder of the Act. "
It can be found at http://www.saf.org/LawReviews/Jay1.html
It was a suit brought by 2 county sheriffs against the federal government who objected to being told to enforce parts of the Brady Act. They won their point.
I wonder who the diddle brained person really is.
