Nah. If you get that buggered up and stupid, you will completely forget that you're even deer hunting.
Deer are curious and will come straight to smell of it though.

I think the government should legalize all drug use and open free self-serve kiosks every few blocks to serve those too weak to resist.... Kill two birds with one stone..

The liberal media had a story on this morning about people killed by high drivers in Colorado. Threw out some stats suggesting about half of the smokers there admit to driving high.

Probably the same half that was driving high before Colorado legalized "The Pot".

Probably the same amount driving in TX high.

Personally I am tired of trying to do more of the same expecting a different result in regards to our nations drug policy. legalize it, tax it and move along. use the tax money to improve schools / pay down our nations debt.

Yep legalize it, penalty for driving high when you kill some one in an auto, manslaughter or maybe even murder.

If you want that to happen the tax would need to be collected and allocated by a non gov. entity. Gov. will see a billion coming in then spend 3 and nothing will get improved

They legalized it in CA Jan. 1. The world has not changed a bit. The state created 3 new government agencies to regulate it- more people on the gov payroll.

I read that the cost of cannabis at the state licensed dispensaries is 3-4 times higher (pun intended) that ‘private party’ transactions from illegal growers to buyers.

No stories in the papers about people killed in car or workplace accidents while stoned.

I'm anti-drugs. But I agree. Either make them legal or don't. Don't tell me weed is not bad for you but then tax it with a sin tax. I wont buy it either way but what's not right is just not right.

Exactly. If anyone thinks that tax money from pot would be anything other than wasted, you haven't been paying attention.

I’m sales mgr for an engineering company doing product development. I’m contacted by people doing bongs, vaping units, cannabis distillation/ oil extraction.

What’s interesting is the business guys making money, running a chain of licensed dispensaries are NOT stoners. They’re in it for the $, and don’t mess with getting high.

To each their own, just don’t drive, shoot a weapon or put somebody else at risk.

I just don't think something should be taxed if legal. The whole premise that a sin tax somehow has some moral bearing is ridiculous. It's nothing more than an excuse to tax more.

For the record. I'm all for legalizing it.

Besides the fact I'm not for legalizing any drug......

The "sin tax" is a con. They claim it's for this and that but we all know that's a load of BS.

Just like the mj tax would be for increased health care, rehab, pot education, and other feel good programs... But very little would actually go to those programs.

I would say to make everything legal as long as people paid their true fair share. Let health insurance companies calculate if a pot smoker should pay more and how much. Same with everything including everyone like fat people, skinny people, people who work out or don't etc.

It's complete BS (to put it nicely) that someone who is healthy with a job has to pay for someone without a job and who is unhealthy.

Its like the Gax tax we pay to the Fed that "goes towards" highway infrastructure, yet we need Congress to pass spending bills for infrastructure because they already spent the original allocation of funds from the gas tax on something else. Probably trans fluid lesbian dog parks in the Heights or something.

Sorry, road tolls are here forever. Building roads in even lightly populated areas is ridiculously expensive and the only way to fund big construction is with user fees.

Default Trump attempting to Legalize.

I had to go to a legal dispensary (pot store) to buy a vaping product to tear-down at work. We’re looking at the heating element for a project.

Strange to say the least to see all the little jars on shelves. There was one on sale called “AK-47”.

The place is owned by a lawyer the woman behind the counter told me.

The T shirts were nothing special to buy one.

I'm all for less federal government intrusion particularly if it's not in their enumerated powers. Clearly the states can and should set their own laws. I just hope our state continues to keep it illegal so maybe fewer libtards will want to move here!
