    If prop 19 was voted on in an election year, I think it would've passed. More people leave work to vote for a president. I think more pot heads would have voted.

    I think ALMOST everything should be legal, provided that there is enough educational material out there to property educate someone about it's use.

    I don't agree w/ prop 19 because there is a hidden agenda in it, as I stated earlier.

    I mean, there's many more dangerous substances out there OTC...

Not to mention that the feds already stated that if big business begins grow ops, they would not turn a blind eye like they have been doing with the relative small time grows.

    So in short, it's legal, but supply becomes scarce.

    Not that great.
    Im gonna have to call bullsh*t on this bro. Like you mentioned in your response here large companies would come in and start major distribution systems. I believe phillip morris actually bought like 400 acres in california when the talk of prop 19 came about. And supply would increase significantly

    That "legal" stuff you guys are talking about contains synthetic cannabinoids. Don't be fooled, it is not the herb getting you high. Thats like saying a prohormone is the same as a herbal supplement.

    I never said it was the "herb" normally the companies are using a chemical called JWH-018, which recently the DEA has put a one year ban on (placing them as schedule 1 drugs like coke,heroin etc)

    Look at my post, 2 above you. Belmont and Clark is not that bad of a drive from skokie. If you dont want to drive, take the Skokie Swift into the red line, and get off the red line at Belmont, it brings you right there!

    Just remember, it is labeled and sold as incense, do not ask for legal smoke they will kick you out. Ask for K2 incense. The summit is the strongest, I think they have another brand as well, but I have not tried it.

    @IrishCannon: Socially conservative and fiscally liberal...

    My state(Illinois) isnt much better, they are about to vote on a bill that will double my state taxes. Insert tax weiner in butt sans lube...Yet they just voted down the medical marijuana bill (I dont smoke, but the stuff should be legal for God's sake). My state will vote for any and every spending bill, but when it comes to Gay Marriage or Pot they all of a sudden wave the conservative BAN Hammer...

    I didn't know that. Honestly, I stopped looking at the "legal" alternatives, as for now I am going to remain natural. I laughed at your "I quit bud last week" comment, it reminded me of Snoop Dogg in half baked.

    Just heard on pacifica radio that the state of CA is proposing a tax on med marij of about $50 per every $1000 made in each dispensary to help fix the budget. Many dispensaries think its appalling to tax sick people to save the state.
    One thing that could be the only upside to paying 57 instead of 50 an eighth is, assuming it has any real impact or at least makes the news, think about how much less dispensaries and pot users will be policed. I'm not saying they will turn any more of a blind eye than they do already, but legal pot users will literally be paying that officers salary next year. We might see the rules and regulations drop even more for medi marij cards for patients. Instead of back and shoulder pain, it could be "I get headaches from looking at a computer screen all day" or "hey i took clomid too many times last year and now i can't see." *had to throw that one in*
    This ONLY being possible assuming it has any impact on revenue.

    I completely agree here, what is the reason for banning a compound that is safer than both alcohol and tobacco. The DEA is a joke, and the 'war on drugs' is a bust. Go look for heroin dealers that are fukcing up our youth

    One thing that could be the only upside to paying 57 instead of 50 an eighth is, assuming it has any real impact or at least makes the news, think about how much less dispensaries and pot users will be policed. I'm not saying they will turn any more of a blind eye than they do already, but legal pot users will literally be paying that officers salary next year. We might see the rules and regulations drop even more for medi marij cards for patients. Instead of back and shoulder pain, it could be "I get headaches from looking at a computer screen all day" or "hey i took clomid too many times last year and now i can't see." *had to throw that one in*
    This ONLY being possible assuming it has any impact on revenue.
    LOL @ the clomid comment. Cali is trying to do anything for $$$ right now. We should legalize and tax weed, juice, and prostitution/escorts. Those taxes might help the state keep schools open.

    We could do that....we could also stop allowing the rich to use tax loopholes and make them pay the amount that the rest of us po folk have to pay each year. Not saying tax them more (though i'm not against it either if its corporations) but just the amount they supposedly should be paying.
    **trying to think of something to tie in with pot..uhhhh...uhh....**
    oh oh ...then legalize pot and tax it like booze and keep teachers working and not shutting down programs like Head Start for low income families.

    I always have to laugh when people say tax the corporations, because the corporations get THEIR money from the people! Taxing the corporations is exactly the same as raising taxes on the people that use their products/services! Nobody seems to realize that! I say we tax Wal-Mart! Oh wait, I guess that would mean the "po folk" would have to make up for those tax hikes by paying more for their purchases. Suddenly doesn't sound so appealing when YOU have to pay the bill, does it!?!

    Maybe I was a little vague. Tax corporations if they are american based corporations that take their business to other countries for cheaper labor. Or just eliminate tax loopholes unless they are creating new and innovative environmentally safe products or investing in renewable energy to an extent.
    Who do you think are paying those tax hikes by the way, the corporations?
    Do you know how much GE paid in taxes out the billions in profit?

    I agree with closing tax loopholes. Everybody needs to pay their taxes. And I agree, GE should definitely pay taxes. But then again, they lobbied so hard that the CEO of GE is now the head of the Presidential Council on Jobs and Competitiveness! Apparently only conservatives are required to pay taxes in this administration. The liberals are the ones that have given GE every single tax break, and yet you never hear of any liberal attacking GE for not paying taxes. But then a BIG BUSINESS comes along like Boeing, or Twitter, who simpyl want a tax cut (but they're still paying taxes), and the libs come unglued. It's all propaganda, it's all politcs, and it's all bull****. I think we probably agree on many things (except the green energy BS). But taxing corporations are not the answer, because the customers are the ones that pay the corporations, who then in turn pay the taxes. So, in effect, taxing the corporations is taxing the people. Case in point: They keep raising taxes on cigarettes, and who ends up paying those taxes? Same thing with fuel. They raise the taxes on gasoline, and who ends up paying? The business WILL pass those costs on to the consumer, and when they are no longer able to, they WILL lay off employees. A business cannot be expected to take a loss without a fight (God knows I wouldn't if I worked hard to own a business), and when forced into the red, they WILL close shop. Then where would the economy be?
