Now that people are accepting marijuana, there's talk of decriminalzing everything. Cocaine and heroin included.


Forward thinking?

Or have we lost our minds?

Decriminalizing marijuana was great but it’s created this weird world of dispensaries where weed is treated like it’s holy with ‘bud tenders’ who recommend everything in the store. Now we’re more concerned with fruity flavors & false advertising of promises that never happen. Medical & non-medical lines as if that even matters anymore in most cases besides pricing. Then it’s the whole going thru (in some cases) several doors as if it’s a Vatican vault to buy fruit roll up flavored weed by products. The whole process is ridiculous after 1st few years of the novelty of decriminalization wears off. I don’t have to do all that to grab few drinks for example

Never happen. Ever. The PTB will not leave billions of dollars on the table to NOT fight the War on Drugs. Every prison across the country has about 50% of their inmates in for a drug crime. The majority of them are non-violent crimes too. Law enforcement agencies but federal and local would have their budgets slashed to the bone. This would also cut Big Pharma earnings because more people will self medicate. Portugal had decriminalized all drugs 20 years ago and it worked out just fine. Too much money to be made here in the "greatest country in the world" profiting on the suffering of others. USA! USA! USA!

I’ve been to legal recreational weed dispensaries twice in my life, once in Colorado and just last month in Vegas. Both times it was the best customer service experience of my life.  These were the most knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and friendly retail employees I’ve ever dealt with. It actually took me aback. Even the. Irl game security guys at the door had smiles on their faces. I asked for recommendations and they could talk for hours if you let them. They fucking loved their jobs and loved telling you about it. I don’t know how much they make compared to people at Wal-Mart or CVS, but the quality of employee isn’t even close.  As someone who doesn’t care that much about all the technical details, it’s a bit much, but just once I’d like someone at Best Buy to know anything about what he’s selling like these guys do.

Lot’s of happy stoners with their dream job come true so yes very enthusiastic employees. Lots of overnight ‘experts’ tho who label read hype from equally overnight companies that start to muscle their way onto shelves. Weed is an inconsistent product. Buying same name weed from same store & same ‘bud tender’ 60 days apart won’t mean same product. Yet I can buy same drink from same bar-bartender 60 days apart & it’ll taste same. Weed dispensaries have a lot of garbage on their shelves & it gets expensive navigating thru products until you find a product you like only for it to change on you down the line

Kind of sounds like cigars; i got fooled a few times early on and then figured out what works for me and how to read the reviews. Does Weed store effectively like cigars or are you needing to smoke it relatively quickly for the best results?

Now that law enforcement and the criminal justice system have been fully monetized and made sources of revenue it ain't gonna happen.

One of the worst things that's ever happened in terms of justice is the private prison system, where contracts require that prisons are kept at a set % of their capacity (usually above 70%) or the state has to cough up money to the contractor.

You can buy old weed but it mostly moisture control once you have it. I keep in large heavy glass jar where there is breathing space kind of like wine in a glass but honestly I’ve never kept weed around long enough for it to go bad. Key is to skip dispensaries & find the growers directly but usually you have to buy minimums like an ounce or more @ a time since they have better things to do than nickel & dime. If you want weed products (vape cartridges-edibles-live resins-etc.) go to dispensaries

Have you taken a look at our public prison system at any point in the past 60 years?  We have an entire industry of cops, prison guards, prosecutors, judges, and all associated unions and ancillary workers coming together to ensure that the U.S. has the largest prison population in the world to keep the machine running, and you think private prisons is one of the worst things to happen?  It's not even a blip on the radar.  And if the state is involved in providing more money, it's not "private".  Private prisons don't exist.  There's 100% public prisons, and then there's 80% public/20% private prisons.  This has always been a very strange talking point on the left, presumably just because they get triggered by the word "private" even when it doesn't mean what it says.  No, the state has fucked up our criminal justice system.

That would be legalizing it, which is even less likely than decriminalizing it.  You can't even get birth control OTC because everyone wants their cut.  The more hoops you have to jump through, the more people get paid.

Suzy Cream Cheese has a controlled substances issue. She needs a bed in a rehab. Not a bed in a prison.
