Maybe the Generals at Fort Carson ought to be more concerned right now with their soldiers use of Spice -- their way of getting around drug testing. I personally know several soldiers who are addicted to this nasty substance. I'd rather have them using MJ off-duty than alcohol or spice!
Jeez, gimme a break already -- what a joke, considering that the legal recreational marijuana we're talking about here is for ADULTS and if regulated the same way that alcohol is (the way WE voted for it btw) concerns about teen usage remains the same as it always has. Wish there were a requirement that our elected officials have some sort of cognitive thinking skills instead of just pushing forward with their own emotional fear-spewing and unfounded agendas.
TT -- Wow, you are a real piece of work! Like I said earlier, I think you would be surprised at the true demographics of the pot-using communities (medical and recreational). Perhaps you should pull your head out long enough to take a good look around and get a grasp on some reality. Considering that you've shared your imaginative picture of me, I think I'll share mine of you: An overweight, unhealthy, friendless slob, slouched in front of computer day and night with nothing better to do than to try to jazz up those of us who actually try to have an educated, open-minded, and civil discourse on a myriad of current-day topics.
I have much better things to do than deal with a mental midget such as yourself, so good luck to you and bu-bye.
TT -- Why a registry for legal adult recreational marijuana users? Is there a registry for alcohol or tobacco? Do they test public assistance recipients for alcohol, tobacco, or RX drugs used illegally? You obviously care what other people do since you continue to harass, harangue, b*tch, moan, and whine a whole lot about other people and their situations... I wonder what ever happened to you to turn you into such a miserable human being?
BTW, I have had an extremely well-paying job my entire life and career as do most of my other pot-using friends. I think you'd be surprised at the true demographics of this particular topic.
"Gateway" drug -- really? For a majority of people the primary gateway drugs are ALCOHOL and PRESCRIPTION drugs from parent's liquor and medicine cabinets. Methinks someone watched "Reefer Madness" too many times! I really don't understand what these people (Mayor Bach, Dan May, John Suthers, lol, and even TejonTech, etc) are sooooooo afraid of with legalized marijuana use and sale??? I'd rather see alcohol prohibition come back and leave marijuana alone. It's much safer to the population!
Oh yeah, and I admire and respect the Reverend Broadbent's views on gay marriage in his church and community. It is refreshing to hear from a religious leader in the community who is not hellbent on hell fire and damnation!
The problem seems to be that the straight-“religious” crowd believes they have the corner market on what is right or wrong, fair or unfair, just or unjust, holy or sinful and that they can impose those beliefs onto the rest of the population. And since many people do not worship the same god, with the same rules and interpretations, or any god at all, why don’t we just remove the whole religious/god part of the argument. Then the problem can be viewed as what it truly is – a civil equal rights issue. Don’t impose your interpretative beliefs into someone else’s life, and they won’t impose theirs into yours. Really, when it comes right down to it, how does gay marriage affect your life in any way, shape or form? Why lose sleep over this issue? What is your problem with EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL?
