Colorado ski town legalizes pot - Yahoo! News
Step in the right in the right direction?
I've got mixed emotions about the legalization of pot.
A step in the right direction; But, who gives a damn about Colorado?
I'd just rather see it decriminalized, as long as we honestly educate our youth on the effects of marijuana. I was taught as a child that marijuana was as bad as heroine or cocaine by the DARE officers that would come to our school. Until I found out for myself what it was I had an unfair opinion. Alcohol is more dangerous and destructive then pot.
yes. step in the right direction.
its happening, its really happening, slowly but surely.
The exact same thing I got in my Elementary school. Turns out the cop that came in and talked to us in the 4th grade was arrested for slinging heroin like 3 years later.
It is a step in the right direction, and while symbolic (since it's still illegal at every other level above it) you can expect to see more places doing this.
anyone remember in elementary school when the cop came to talk about drugs theyd pull out that wooden breifcase thing that opened up with all kinds of drugs in it??
i used to wanna steal that. or i wonder if any of it was even real
Hopefully, it'll get decriminalized at the Federal level. I don't smoke pot, but I don't see why it should be banned. After all, cigarettes and alcohol are legal.
reminds me, its about time for my once a year "toke" to relieve a bit of pressure and stress in the skull.
Haha, that's funny as hell. When I visited my mom in Frisco (right next to Breckenridge) in September she gave my whole family this book:
I bet my mom becomes a pothead.
We need more people in prisons!

Whoooo what? I think you mean Woooooo
Says the kid from Kansas.
Decriminalization isn't legalization though.
She lives in Frisco, I'd wager she's already a pothead.
So... seeing as how Breckenridge is at like 9700ft above sea level, does smoking weed in that high of an elevation have the same effect as drinking at that high of an elevation(meaning you only need a little bit to get very fucked up)...? Highest elevation I've smoked was at about 6000ft. and I didn't notice anything.
Don't tell my stoned ass how to celebrate.
I know that decriminalization is not the same as legalization, but it's a step in the right direction. I was just trying to contrast how absurd it is that cigarettes, which cause cancer, and alcohol, which is responsible for many deaths every year due to drunk driving, are legal while pot is not.
In moderation, you can do many dangerous activities and no one gets hurt. You can't say marijuana is excluded from this fact. If someone got super high and got behind of the wheel it would expose the public to the same risks as being on the road with a drunk. I'm so tired of hearing this crap...
Edit: I'm not saying it shouldn't be legalized but that's a sorry ass justification.
The few times I've smoked in my life (not many) I was laid out with the spinners. If I would have drove in that condition, I would have killed someone or myself.
Don't get me wrong. I've smoked my share. 2 years straight, breakfast lunch and dinner. Bubble Gum, White Widow, Cush, whatever. It was some strong 1 hit quit shit.
My cousin came down from Washington State a couple of years ago and I took a rip of some of her shit. 1 (ONE) hit. I thought I was cool, seemed cool anyway. 10 minutes later everything went black and white and I got dizzy. NEver happened to me before in my 2 years of chronic smoking. I had to lay down for 20 minutes. Imagine if I would have got in a car when I thought "I was cool?"
I'm just saying. There's some seriously strong shit coming from up north. It aint no joke.
Precisely. Which is why I'm pointing out how illogical and hypocritical it is for alcohol to be legal.
Please let me know if I'm making myself clear or if you need me to elaborate further.
Either way, I believe it's your right to destroy yourself however you'd like, as long as you don't take me down with you.
I'm sorry, you conveniently didn't include it. I see.
First class move there slick.
Right so adding the blitzed out potheads behind the wheel is ok. Got it. You must have an amazing immune system because last I checked, an automotive fatality is non-discriminatory.
