I'm all for legalizing it, our dr in Kingston Oklahoma said it's helped a bunch of her patients for pain, especially when they are so strict on opiods, even for the people that really need them for pain.

The pain from my kidney stone was so bad that I took hydrocodone and that ended up making me severely constipated and that is not fun at all. So I started taking edibles for pain management and it worked with no side effects except the worst cotton mouth I ever had. I support medical uses of cannabis, it does help.

Medication should never be taxed.

Tax the recreational side of you must.

It’s crazy how many “small government conservatives” are so gung-ho about taxing yet another thing when this subject comes up.

How about you stay in your lane and keep your nose out of my business and wallet. Especially when it comes to a practically harmless plant.

Iíve read most of the posts....not going to lie though, not all of them, but just want to put my .02 in for no other reason than Iím bored right now. Lol.

Sorry if any of this has previously been posted.

There was a woman in California who died after entering a water drinking contest trying to win her son a Nintendo Wii. She basically died of water intoxication.

Point being........ANYTHING and EVERYTHING can be lethal or dangerous in the hands of the wrong person.

Alcohol, guns, drugs......none of these things are deadly or harmful by themselves. But in the hands of an alcoholic, psychopath, or drug addict can prove to be deadly to themselves and others.

Guns and alcohol are legal because we fought for those rights. Guns provide safety, entertainment, tax money and jobs at the plants that manufacture them. Same with alcohol granted it is consumed in a responsible manner.

So why not legalize a stupid plant that has been shown to have incredible medicinal benefits? Are people going to abuse it? Sure. Will people do that anyway regardless of wether or not itís legal? Absolutely. But let people make their own choices just as we do everyday with so many different things.

It will generate revenue, jobs, and free up space in jails all over the state for petty weed charges.

I promise those chemicals in prescription pills people choke down everyday just to get through their mundane existence are 10 times more harmful than a herb.

Psilocybin should be legal also while we are at it. The science and research behind mushrooms that has been proven to dramatically treat depression, anxiety, PTSD, and regenerate plasticity in the brain is mind blowing. Why the hell a mushroom is a schedule 1 drug is absurd.

These statements are just MY opinion. I know most will not agree with me, nor read this entire post. But I was pleasantly surprised by a lot of the responses in this thread from people. Did not expect that on this site, so I felt the need to contribute on behalf of the others who arenít afraid to put themselves out there for fear of being drug over the coals!

Ran into a couple of old timers from Galveston at a dispensary up in Trinidad the other day.
They make the trip to Trinidad every few months. Both use the cannabis for medical needs. Both were willing to take the risk of transporting cannabis to treat those needs.
They said they would rather keep those dollars in Texas.
Talked to several other Texans but these two were the furthest.

Saw this today on a cannabis news vlog I follow.

Texas Ag Commissioner Sid Miller says heíd Ďcertainly expand medical marijuana

After touring a state-licensed Austin-area marijuana facility last week, Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller indicated he would like to see the program expanded.

Miller, a staunch conservative Republican, made the comments while visiting Compassionate Cultivation on Thursday, according to KXAN.

ďI would certainly expand medical marijuana. If itíll help somebody, Iím for it," Miller said. ďWhatever it is. I mean, a toothache, I donít care. If itís a cure, if it [alleviates] pain, we should be able to use that.Ē

That’s a pretty ignorant statement.

People who have to go to another town/county to buy alcohol would certainly rather spend that money local than in another town/county. Does that mean they ONLY buy in their town/county? Of course not!

Personally, I don’t care if Texas ever goes recreational. I just wish they would back off the felony for processed thc. Things like edibles, vape pens, drinks etc.

They both seem to understand that Texas would be one of the largest cannabis markets in the US the moment it becomes legal in TX. Right up there with CA, NY and Florida.
The economic impact will be tremendous.
With a little TX pride it will surpass the other markets within a decade or so.

Not the best for munchies. More of a creative/uplifting high with lots of pain/inflammation relief.

It gives me a troubled stirring in my inner being...

I am sure there are good medical uses for this stuff, but thousands and thousands of lives have been destroyed by this drug. Real research needs to be done to find out what it is that "helps" folks with the various "ailments" it is purported to "fix". If it is the THC, then it should be made available with a REAL DR.'s prescription and regulated like any other mind altering drug is. To make it readily available to anyone is a path of destruction for many, many lives. The science that has been done on it shows just how destructive this drug is to adolescent brains as well as adults... It reduces cognitive thinking abilities whether temporarily or permanently from constant use, then these folks get behind the wheel of a car/truck with diminished abilities to respond and reason... It is a recipe for disaster... The very idea of "recreational use" is ridiculous... How dang stupid to you have to be to use this drug to stone yourself out of reason as recreation?! I'm sorry, I've just seen too much destruction come from this stuff to ever think that it's normalization should be accepted... Of course with all the crap that society is normalizing today, this is not surprising... Heck, go to the West coast and get high and sodomize a minor, and you're "normal"...


You guys can just flame on if you want, but reading all the posts supporting this stuff, I just felt that I would put my 2 cents in as well... I'm out.

Iíve seen the ďeconomic impactĒ of gambling in places like lake charles and Baton Rouge. Iíll just say Iím glad I donít live anywhere near any of those casinos.
Why canít people look at whatís taking place in Colorado and other places that have gone this route and come to the rational decision that itís not a good idea?

How awesome would it be for us to brag about texas being the largest marijuana market? Thatís what I really want to tell people.

Many would rather keep a powerful and deadly black market. Clearly it has been very profitable that way for a very long time with the war on drugs.

Do you have 1 single example of a life that has been destroyed by pot? I don't partake in it but have know a lot of people who do & I haven't seen 1 life ruined due to pot. Other drugs, absolutely. Alcohol, yup. Pot, zero.

It boggles my mind that alcohol is legal but weed isn't. Either make them both illegal or both legal.

Yessir. Go back and read post 133.


Edit to add: It is also widely known and accepted to be a gateway drug that leads to harder drugs that indeed ruin lives by the thousands...

L'Auberge is the second largest employer behind the school system, sits on some pretty good real estate and brings in $10's of millions a month. What are you talking about exactly?

Not to mention that already have drive through alcohol distributors.

Not to mention that already have drive through alcohol distributors.


Have you spent much time driving around outside of the casino in the neighborhoods?

The lottery was supposed to solve all of texas education problems too and where is that money?

Gambling is just an attraction for bad things and a way for rich people to take advantage of poor people and Itís all fun and games until itís in your neighborhood.

Itís considered a vice for a reason.

Yep and people will deny the gateway thing all day long
I remember in high school multiple friends that didnít drink but started smoking dope when we were maybe sophomores, by the time we were seniors they were dropping acid and snorting as much coke as they could get their Hands on.
Was sad to see.

It's amazing how much different this thread is going compared to the past...

If you're going to let alcohol be legal, let people smoke their pot too. I am of the feeling that in some ways alcohol is worse than weed.
