Thanks for cluing me in right up front that I should put you on ignore.

Given the DEA’s relationship with Sinaloa, and the agency’s fury over legalized marijuana, it almost seems like the DEA wants to crush the legal weed market in order to protect the interests of their cartel friends. Almost.

But how can this be?  RWHN assured me, quoting a very impressive study from two RAND Corporation experts that legalising marijuana in the USA would have no impact on the Mexican cartels?

And that the DEA are a bunch of really nice guys, too.

Chiming in here that despite our intensely regulated market, edibles are having all kind of problems, including a recall last month of one of the larger brownie makers for sanitary concerns:

The Denver Department of Environmental Health recalled several products from the company At Home Baked because of concerns over the machine the company was using to produce water hash to go in the products


Regardless, as the tax revenue and lower crime statistics keep coming in, there won't be much opposition that will be tolerated. Coupled with the states that are following our lead as well as the district decriminalization of possession, and the ball is finally rolling in the right direction.

We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

Actually my number one complaint is the bullshit dui laws that have come with legality. I can't even have a whole beer at dinner without being over our bullshit .05 limit. It's ridiculous.

On a lighter note, the pot clubs/bars are still working out. Hell, one of them was advertising on the radio about a week products filled piñata for the 4th of July. So that's something I suppose.

You're right of course. I'm disgusted at myself. What say we imprison them all, pre-emtively. To protect them from the inevitable gateway to meth?
