You're an idiot. You miss the whole thing. Pot has Real, REAL, medicinal benefit. Not just to be a pothead. They are finding that it is doing fantastic things in the healing world. It's goofballs like you that continue to give this amazing plant a bad name. Shame on you.

ALOT OF US IN WASHINGTON ARE NOT THAT HAPPY ABOUT LEGALIZATION. I M MEDICAL MARIJUANA ANYHOW SO IT DOES NOT EFFECT ME. BUT FOR THE AVERAGE PERSON TO GET ON THE SO CALLED ""GOLD RUSH"" BAND WAGON IT IS ALMOST FINANCIALLY IMPOSSIBLE. IT WILL COST THE AVERAGE PERSON ABOUT $100,000 TO GET LICENSED, AND SET UP ... UNLESS YOU HAVE A MAJOR FUNDER YOU WILL NOT BENEFIT. SO THIS LEGALIZATION IS ONLY FOR THE RICH!!!!!!!!THE REQUIRED MONITORING SYSTEM FOR A GROW OPERATION WILL COST A GROWER ABOUT 25 GRAND ALONE!!!! SO LETS SEE NOW THAT TODAY IS THE FIRST DAY APPLICATIONS ARE BEING TAKEN IN WASHINGTON STATE WHO REALLY GETS A LICENSE....... IT WONT BE MOM OR DAD WHO WANNA GROW A ROOM... WAY TO GO GOVERNMENT.

end prohibition! i'm sure once they figure out how to test it at traffic stops and how to find out within a small window when you smoked last, it will be legal all over.

The only ones in fear are the pharmaceutical companies, because they know they're producing death.

Obama says they have bigger fish to fry. I personally don't think we need more pot heads in America.

You're right. we don't need more potheads, but we DO need the tremendous health benefits of this plant. You can get the benefits without getting high. But potheads will continue to make it a harder struggle than it needs to be for legalization. It's more important for them to get high than it is for the rest of the world to heal. Sad......
