On pot...seems a simple news story generates some controversy [View all]

So shall we review some fun facts?

Pot possession in California is not legal....unless you have a prescription...yup...it is a class II drug under California law. I know funny. Americans for Safe Access are trying this at the Federal level in the DC Circuit right now. (if they succeed I can't wait to call my local US Attorney for comment)

Colorado tried to head the Commerce clause at the pass, by saying that it is not legal to export it from the state. Enjoy it, while in Colorado, but not taking it across the border.

Fun fact, it is the Commerce clause that is at the heart of the Federal governments contention that Federal Law trumps state law. I mean you pot heads will send all over and when it crosses state lines (at times international borders) well, it is now subject to federal regulation.

Washington is the farthest any state has gone down the road to decriminalize possession, though it did not go so far as to make it legal to cultivate. This weed literally grows everywhere in Washington state and Northern Oregon though, the state had a pot head literally fly over the state throwing seeds from the air. It's the only state you can call the cops to remove the plants from your backyard and you will not get in trouble.

Oh and yes, while we might be for legalization, news articles are not editorials. I cannot put in there my views. In fact, if the DC court reschedules the plat, it will not end the war. After all, the universe of people who can get a script is smaller than the universe of people who'd like to consume. But it will be a step forwards.

Oh and let me repeat this, I am all for legalizing it...and regulating like tobacco and alcohol...I have personally been in the front lines of this joyful war...but we need to know where we are. It's like good to know.
