I agree. The gov't has been doing research on pot since 78 -79, all "seeds'" are GMOed and owned by Monsanto.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37066414


Can you provide any evidence to substantiate your claims so we can decipher 'fact' from 'subjective speculation'?
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


no, he can't, cause he totally made it up. Of course, he'll give a link to an obscure blog to count as "evidence"


Meanwhile, you can still get seeds from wild plants in most of North America.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 12655021

Don't worry there is a bigger plan in play then any one is seeing. It removes all aspects of privacy and patient doctors "privilege", they will tell you when you have a issue, not the other way around.





Title; HEALTHCARE NOT HANDCUFFS

Putting the Affordable Care Act to Work
for Criminal Justice and Drug Policy Reform

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) sets the stage for a new health-oriented policy framework to address
substance use and mental health disorders. By dramatically expanding and funding healthcare
coverage to millions of currently uninsured people, the ACA represents a remarkable opportunity for
criminal justice and drug policy reform advocates to advance efforts for policies promoting safe and
healthy communities, without excessive reliance on the criminal justice solutions that have become so
prevalent under the War on Drugs.


This paper is intended as a starting framework for criminal justice and drug policy advocates to
navigate the ACA, and to take advantage of the conceptual and practical opportunities it offers for
shifting the conversation and the landscape.

BTW this whole thing OP posted is a trap to seize money and monitor cash flow.

Remember if you smoke pot you have no second amendment rights, next they will pass it on to alcohol.

Once again, the communist regime in Washington has decided that they can change the law without the input of congress. I hope the law catches up to them some day. I wood love to see Holder sharing a cell with King Barry.
 Quoting: Epic Beard Guy


^this^

After the buzz wears off, people really need to think about what just happened... again. Rule by fiat is the exact opposite of what this country was founded on. People should be free to possess a naturally occurring plant. However, they should not look to one lone ruler to allow them that privilege. It should be republic law, not a fiat proclamation.
"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

Look up Opium war in the late 1800's. Basically china didn't want to deal with the British as a business/trade partner so the British imported opium and it made all the chinese lazy and stupid. So the British come is and take over the main port, they seize it, and become the only trade partner. So countries/governments can and have used drugs to control populations.

The pot's tainted. I used to smoke everyday and then it was like I became allergic to it all the sudden. Something has changed with it. My guess is a genetic variant has finally saturated the natural genome and this the government is ready to open the flood gates on the stuff. Use with caution people. There's something fishy going on.

Already held up in court.

If someone in your house has the card and lives with you, you also surrender your rights.

If they repeal the law and you had a card in the past you still so far gave your rights up for life.

So now what will happen is a physical record to track people through bank transactions.

 Quoting: saffire&gold

they are? is that why only 4% of the states have legalized it?

the legalization in 2 states is the results of a decades long movement by the people in those states pushing for support in their government.

If the government was really behind legalization, we'd have legalization today, and they'd release everyone in prison for pot and related crimes.

Hell, in some parts of Texas, they can throw you in jail for having a pipe (not even having marijuana). So, how exactly are they falling over themselves to legalize it?

The hidden agenda here is that the left sees that the majority of people support legalization, so they've made it their issue. The right could have done the same thing, but instead, they went with "zero tolerance" and catered laws to their private prison contributors.

no, it hasn't. having a card does not give up your rights, stop that nonsense.

you can still buy with cash or bitcoin, no tracking needed.

compare that with GOING TO JAIL, and maybe even getting a felony (like in Texas) and never getting to own a gun after that, either.
