Quote
California Gov. Jerry Brown questioned on Sunday the widespread legalization of recreational marijuana, asking how America can stay a great nation if everyone is stoned.

NBC’s “Meet the Press” host David Gregory asked Mr. Brown if it’s time for recreational marijuana to be legalized in California, but the Democrat said he’d have to first watch Washington and Colorado “show us how it’s going to work.”

“The problem with anything — a certain amount is OK, but there is a tendency to go to extremes,” Mr. Brown said. “And all of a sudden if there’s advertising and legitimacy, how many people can get stoned and still have a great state or a great nation? The world’s pretty dangerous, very competitive. I think we need to stay alert, if not 24 hours a day, more than some of the potheads might be able to put together.”

Welcome to Bizarro World.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

All he needs to do is look at his own state to see the results of a state full of potheads and it isn't pretty - or effective.

I actually agree with him.. Either hell has frozen over and pigs are flying..
"Die-hard conservatives thought that if I couldn't get everything I asked for, I should jump off the cliff with the flag flying-go down in flames. No, if I can get 70 or 80 percent of what it is I'm trying to get ... I'll take that and then continue to try to get the rest in the future."

I'm for decriminalization of pot and that is how far I would go...  From what I have been hearing Pot is worse today then it was say over 40 years ago..

Seen various figures bandied about, it's anywhere between 4 and 40 times more THC per plant than the stuff we smoked in the 70s and 80s. So yep - a lot stronger now. I have the odd joint with friends and it is a sight stronger than the resin we used to get, that's for sure.

Couldn't that simply mean to get a desired effect, less need be smoked, etc.?
