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.”

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.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

I actually agree with him.. Either hell has frozen over and pigs are flying..
GOP House members came to Paul Ryan to be Speaker. He didn't come to them. And he was everybody's conservative darling back in 2012. So unless 1 of the remaining 240 wants to step up & do a better job in budgeting & negotiations & herding the party cats, then everybody please STFU. You go to battle with the army you have, not the one you want but don't have.

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.?
