    I don't touch the stuff anymore. A good red wine or homebrew is my flavor now. Can't afford that kind of trouble at this stage.

    The criminalization of MJ is silly. Someday we will look back on this chapter much as we do prohibition. I shudder at the billions of dollars spent on the war on drugs, that could have been MUCH better spent.
    Let's see, first you claim you put me on ignore, but really you didn't.

    Then you accuse me of being an old drunk.

    Then you quote me, but claim you were not talking to me.

    Now I am a pothead.

    You are special.

    Since you are on ignore, I'll quote this so Dave can see it...

    Regarding the name calling, I wonder if he is this wishy washy when he is trying to decide between cheese puffs and corn chips because he's got the munchies?

    Why is Marijuana not legal? Itís a natural plant that grows in the dirt. You know whatís not natural? 80 year old dudes with hardons! Thatís not natural but we got pills for that. Were dedicating all our medical resources to keeping old guys erect. And putting people in jail for smoking something that grows in the dirt.

    Jmtc, Duck, I think you were drawing the wrong inference from this news story. That is, People (sellers) who have made the choice to engage in criminal acts are likely to make more bad choices & try to make the most of the opportunity while they have the chance. First, they were probably selling some of the smoke to folks who had faked or no prescriptions as well as their legal customers. Then, since they're already breaking the law doing "that", might as well go the next step. Where there is a market/demand, someone will try to fill that need and profit from it.
    As RK alluded to, because pot is illegal in most cases, it's users are "in the community" with users of other illegal substances.
    "Hey man, you know where to score some crystal/blow?"
    "Nah, but maybe the guy I get weed from knows where ...."
    and vice versa.

    But selling meth & coke out of a place that's already going to be on a high profile police watch list? .
    "Hey man, are you stoned or just stupid?" In this case I think it was the latter.
    "It's not that government is inherently stupid, although that's a debatable question."

    Sorry if I don't abide by your net-iquette!

    But apparently you and duck have a reading disability. Let me say this again: You're far too entertaining to keep on ignore. And secondly, I merely stated I personally don't touch that stuff, and frankly, I don't give a rat's behind if you, or anyone else does or doesn't. If you think I lay awake at night wondering what RK's vices are, you're in for a big disappointment!

    Think what you want, but please, stop putting your words into my posts.

    And I have not called any names or insults here, so please don't run to Chris and tell on me! he's got bigger fish to fry.

    And Duck, cheese puffs are far worse for you than a herbal smoke. If you get the munchies, I would suggest broccoli and cauli bites.

    You got it all wrong, Ken. Its used to keep old men in nursing homes from rolling out of bed and hurting themselves.

    No, your post was my entire point exactly. You said it much better than I did.
