Poll: Support grows to legalize marijuana in New York
« on: February 20, 2014, 01:15:25 PM »
According to the poll, 89% of New York state denizens support making medical marijuana legal, and 57% favor legalizing recreational pot.

Hopefully it will go to the voters the next time around.

Don't hold your breathe...
Wasn't it Coumo that made it for isolated areas for only certain dire illnesses? I could be wrong on who, but the limit was total shit and think that needs to be redone so that it is fully medical option like the Dude state CA, at least. So what are we looking at, this year or 2016? Meanwhile I have heard that many have moved to CO and others are think of it.

Please, don't. Pot is, like, bad for you, man.

We're enjoying the stoner tourism and tax money here in Colorado and we don't feel like sharing.

The way this happens is by putting it to a vote.
Most politicians won't come out in support but once the public support is there then they don't have to any more.
If it happens it will be 2016. That's a lot of time to pressure a vote.

Progress is slow, but we're in it for the long haul. Besides, not like us stoners don't know how to wait patiently on the couch.

Yeah, this is just about par for the surreal course of today's world. NY state will legalize pot but NYC will still drop the Nazi jackboot on anyone who dares purchase a 32oz beverage. Jesus. Fucking. Christ.

Well at least they got Bloomberg out of there.
That beverage thing was over the line big time. All time world record over the line.

I'd love to hope that somehow someday I might be able to go out have a nice dinner a couple drinks and then light up a stogie in the restaurant. But the way things are now they'd call the SWAT team.

Not so much to defend nut to explain the theory.

Banning over sized soft drinks is meant to lower healthcare costs that are spread across the spectrum. When some numbnut spends everyday drinking what is essentially a poison and causes a lot health issues for them selves, we all end up paying for that, in terms of added healthcare costs and lost GDP. No man is an island we all share in each other's fates, so if we could keep some from over doing it, we would all benefit. This theory is behind everything about civilization. Like we all gave up the freedom to shit in the street, in order to have a sane and reasonable society.

That only applies because we've socialized healthcare costs. That was the initial mistake. If we didn't require hospitals to provide emergency care to everyone without consideration of payment, those concerns would take care of themselves without reducing the liberty of the populace as a whole.

You have a right to fuck up yourself. You don't have a right to make me pay for it.

Right! It was preferable when poor people just died on the streets.



Those were the days!

We still have to pay to clean up the dead bodies, we also lose consumers, producers, potential discoveries and ideas. As a capitalist I know I make more money being surrounded by living, healthy, prosperous customers than if I let my fellow Americans fall so far they can no longer help me.

Personally I don't put a price on our basic freedoms.
This is the same attitude that religion seems to take. That the general populace can not be trusted and must be guided like sheep. Sorry I don't buy it.
We used to believe that the greatness of the US was the proof that freedom works.
I still believe it. Leaving people to their own devices will not lead to the end of the world.
People should do what they see fit and keep their noses out of others shit In the end that will work out fine.

But if your freedom comes with a bill for me, how is that free?
