    Marijuana Legalization?

    What do you think about legalization? Global legalization? Or only in certain advanced countries? Why banned weed when alcohol is more dangerous than marijuana.

    #2
    Because way many more people are hooked on some form of pill than drink alcohol. Do you think big pharma and the politicians in their pockets want marijuana to be legal?

      after my gastric bypass surgery leaked and I went septic ,in a coma for 28 days and another 50 in Hospitals they had me hooked real good I had a hole in my butt you could fit a softball in so I was on 180 ml grams a day you could set your watch by when I took those pills , well after I had the last surgery to fix my stomach it was November ,by my birthday in March I was off of them completely my Doctor was sure I would have to go to rehab to get off of them ,Nope I just smoked pot and it worked .So I believe that the big Pharma companies will fight to keep pot right up there with heroin

      The "group" who started this anti-opiate thing has skin in the game. Google Andrew Kolodney and Suboxone. Most of the people deciding this stuff have monetary reasons for their crusade and are not pain doctors who went to school for their specialty. Chronic pain people aren't hooked, less than 1% get addicted or have withdrawal symptoms when forced off their meds. I went from 250 mcg Fentanyl patch to none, all it did was make me have more health issues, less sleep, more pain, less abled, more isolated and broke from buying dispo weed to try to replace the help that the Rx gave me, it was covered by insurance. In the 5 years since the 2016 CDC's misapplied guidelines went into effect overdose deaths from heroin and illicit fentanyl have increased. It was never the pills. Blaming ODs on pills is like blaming gun violence on pills - both examples are inaccurate. Politicians don't mind mj being legal, it brings in tax money to their states, and they invest in the industry. Big pharma is like the mob, they won't lose money, they just increase prices. Back on a small pain patch, I can attest to the price increase.

    I like that it's legal to grow in my state. I only wish it was more than 4 plants per household. And i very much concur with the above statement. It's a plant that produces amazing helpful medicine for people in many forms.

      Wow, didn't know you had a 4 plant limit. It's five here. Here's my problem with MJ for pain: If you're in the hospital you can't use it, and the drs are clueless. Now women having complete hysterectomies get IV Tylenol for post-op pain, it's cruel. People dying from cancer in hospice can't get morphine. I love MJ but it can't compete for severe pain management. A neurosurgeon told me I need surgery in 3 places on my spine, two different surgeries, and that I'd need "a couple of Norcos" afterward. They're on my allergy list. Doctors are afraid to get busted for doing their jobs, despite their Hippocratic Oath.

    Even in some areas where it is legal, the restrictions don’t make sense. You can grow say four plants but you’re not allowed to store the amount of weed that those four plants could potentially produce. Can’t sell it either. Butttttt!!!! If you’re caught growing four plants illegally, the news will say they confiscated a live grow operation worth over 100k 🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

      They've always severely over-inflated the 'worth' of busts, using small buy street values. I think the "inventory" thing is a CYA for illegal big grow busts. We had a county sheriff who was busting so many vehicles hauling weed on I-80 that a major newspaper had a cartoon about how to avoid my county while traveling on Interstate 80. The drug task forces were pulling people over, taking their cash (even when no drugs were found) and letting them go ... then taking Vegas vacations on what they pocketed.

      SoOrbudgal hey, that's 4lbs x 3 grows per year
      We get 12 here as well, but I've never had more than 7 going at once and 3 of those were for other people. I have a whole new respect for pharmers who can stay on top of 12 plants.

    As of July 1, 2021 the state of Ct. made it legal recreationally, was already legal medically, and yes big pharma has a lot to lose (GOOD) the thing is, when will the United States 🇺🇸 government recognize it? However if your afraid of the Federal laws in place, while your state has approved it, when will most realize that the state law supersedes the federal mandate? Remember the States created the Federal government so.

      I'm glad CT finally passed it but the bill is stupid. I can grow up to 6 plants but only possess 5oz. The math doesn't add up. Most of us can pull that or more off one plant.

      MO has an eighteen plant limit but the details are weird. Six "flowering", six "non-flowering" and six "seedlings" per permit. They don't have much personnel to enforce any of this anyway.

      4x4 tent, Platinum LED P4-XML2. Four female Crockett's Tangies in coco for seed.

      Project Deuxberry:
      3x3 tent, Platinum P300 LED. Four Dutch Passion Blueberries in coco for seed. Three females, one male. Harvested and drying.

      Coco/Perlite/worm castings/mycorrhizae mix.
      Megacrop for seeded grows, Down-To-Earth dry amendments for regular grows.

      Coconut Grove: Vegging Super Lemon Haze, Purple Kush, Peyote Z-----z, Pineapple Express, Wedding Cake and Alien Technology fem photos in new 4x4 tent under new Platinum P4-XML2 LED.

        There has been a growing popular movement in the United States to legalize marijuana for medicinal and recreational uses, with several states adopting such measures already. One motivation for legalization is the economic benefits that can come from the regulated commercial availability of marijuana. Increased tax revenues, job growth, and investment opportunities all are powerful incentives to push for legalization.

          The other day they cited the issue with crossing state lines between legal & illegal states. If you travel by air you have to dump what you didn't use and wait to buy more after you arrive in a legal state. Then use or dump that before you leave. On the upper east coast states are small and people cross state lines daily while driving, at least they're observing this issue. There's a large cultivator in a town 10 minutes away, I've never heard of any complaints. They expanded before COVID, more than doubled in size.
