31. Thank you for weighing in on this. l don't know personally if it is my loss.
Edited on Fri Nov-05-10 02:22 PM by truedelphi
Doctors let me have unlimited vicodeine. Only one has helped me resolve WHY I need pain meds in the first place. With that help, and knowing how to avoid the cause of pain, my pain med useage is way. Marijuana impairs my ability to remain awake, plus has caused me massive paranoia. So it isn't about me personally at all.

But it sucks that people who do use it have to face charges by police. And that the prisons have so many inmates from these minor drug charges. And that the prison industry literally has sucked this state dry. No governor or legislator here dares to face down the Prison Guard Union. We don't have teachers, social workers, project managers or needed projects - but hey, we have prisons galore. With staff that never worries about being laid off due to lack of funds.

Meanwhile, cartels from south of the border clean up one family member and ship them here, where that person buys an entire bank! To help launder the cartel's drug funds.

I also liked that Prop 19 would have freed up job seekers from worrying about whether their minor marijuana useage would have cost them a job.
