marijuan has been legal in california for many years. i guess obama thought that it was unfair that california was the only state with legal marijuana and wanted the rest of the country to have the same.
I remember in the 70's we used to say "Pot will be legal in 5 years". It's been 40 years and I guess we are getting close.
It won't be legal until you can light up a spliff on the Circle without feeling paranoid.
NO to U.S. Government Mandated Health Care and Insurance!
I know personal responsibility is a problem for lots of people. They want to be told what to believe, what to buy, and "what is good for them."
The medical practitioners labor union AKA " the American Medical Association" and the pharmaceuticals corps. have a near monopoly on health care. I've earned an average of 14.5 annual returns since opening a Vanguard Health Fund account in 1993. It is not rocket science. From 9 percent of the economy a couple of decades ago we are pushing twenty percent of GDP goes for health care.
The majority of WE the people demand expensive health care procedures that only the government can afford, all the while they consume vast quanities of alcohol, tobacco, legal and illicit substances, and on epidemic portions of food, and consequently suffer from avoidable obesity, diabetes, and other preventable illinesses.
We, who choose moderation, are compelled to pay for risky behaviors of others under government sponsored health schemes.
As far as pot goes, Amsterdam's tourism economy will be hurt if California starts opening "coffee shops." I don't have a problem with it, as long as people are not driving under the influence, or demanding we pay for the health consequences (or benefits?) of their consumption.
It's about time is all I can think to say. They should have legalized it back in the '60's. Would of saved everyone a lot of trouble.
