    Apparently the story isn't as rosy in Washington. $25 on the street, $75 from the legal places. I'm sure all the dope heads would rather do it legally and pay their fair share of taxes for an inferior product.

    Might want to check out your source. Look at the vid again ... he has a sign on the glass reading:

    "Fast & Vast" (I'm assuming that's a strain he's selling)

    2 grams $50
    That's the going rate in Colorado shops, as well.

    He also says $10,000/lb is his "break even price" (paraphrasing). So 448 grams (1 pound) x $25/gr gets him $11,200. Close.

    Your claim it's going for $75 per gram doesn't add up.

    I went back and re-read the article and watched the video, and never saw anything about $75.00/gm. It only shows a label for $50.00/2gm which is $25.00/gm. Now we don't know if that is before or after taxes, but I can't imagine a 200% tax.

    There is nothing in there that mentions $75. Dan will be in back to tell us where that came from.

    And he isn't selling it for $50 ... his sign says 2 grams for $50. That's why he closed up til he could find a wholesaler with a better price.

Crime and death do to bad booze or just plane alcohol poisoning went thru the roof, not to mention gang deaths by rivals.

    I suggest a brief look back into that period and all of the problems it caused rather than solved. Don't like it, don't use it.

    But legalizing it IS going to reduce over all abuse and crime in the long run. All you need to do is look back to what happened after repeal. Add to that better education and the removal of the allure of using a banned substance and I would venture less abuse and overall problems down the line.

    Some people are just going to hold on to old myths and are incapable of taking on a subject with a rational mind.

    MJ is much safer than booze or cigarettes but because they are prejudiced MJ, it is a waste of time trying to discuss with such close-minded folks.

    There are thousands of responsible and successful folks that smoke MJ and like I pointed out earlier, some people are just losers whether it be booze or drugs. Losers are losers no matter what they consume! However, that is no reason for a free people that are responsible from indulging in whatever they wish.

    While you were typing, I was already re-watching the video as I thought I had gotten that wrong, but as I wrote earlier, been a long month.

    Way, WAY too much made of the many, many myths regarding this relatively, low-risk, mind-altering substance. What potential dangers exist, are far more related to the personality of the individual involved than to the substance itself.

    AND, don't be naive ... it has been readily available to our kids for decades, and they all know how to get it if they want it. Nothing much changes with legalization EXCEPT the source is now separate from a lot of the previous sources who ALSO dealt the more seriously dangerous drugs. That fact in itself makes legalization a good thing.

    This thread for the most part has been interesting reading. I'm in favor of legalizing pot for the reasons many others including Franco, already outlined. I've been around a few potheads and also have experience with drunks since I married one when I was much younger and my personal feeling is pot heads don't beat their wives, punch guys in bars over imagined insults, stick up liquor stores, etc. Are you at risk on the road from being crashed into by a stoner? Yes, but at much less risk than being killed by a drunk.

    In fact, I pretty much favor legalizing all of it. It's been abundantly proven over the past 30 years that the war on drugs has been an abject failure and colossal waste of money. Meanwhile drug cartels, virtually unheard of 30 years ago, basically rule this criminal enterprise. I just watched a program on heroin and it seems the rise in heroin related deaths has come from how cheap and readily available it is in comparison to the crackdown on addictive narcotic pain pills. And I also agree with Franco that losers are losers and the govt. isn't going to be able to protect them from killing themselves. As for the ones that let their children accidently get into their stash... these are probably the same ones who feed them junk food and don't watch them so they call the cops when one is asleep in the basement. You can't fix stupid.

    Some of the personal comments are a little low though. Shinyhead you should be ashamed of yourself for dissing a guy's dog and in the process displaying your lack of knowledge about the breed.

    DC AFC Gambler's Dilwyn-Stacked Deck MH, that you said was the sire of one of your dogs, threw masking, brindle and multi colored dogs a lot, including a son, DC AFC Distagon MH that was light deadgrass with a dark widow's peak, dark ring around his neck, and faint saddle markings. Currently we have a female AFC, that has distinct markings. It's very common in the breed and perfectly acceptable, although show people prefer the solid colors. I have several ash Chesapeakes (see avatar); that color is also "not preferred" but perfectly acceptable. On a scale of 100 the CBR coat color is worth a total of 4 points so it's not a big deal.
