I think it's great that more folks are gonna be smokin' pot. Maybe that supply-and-demand thing'll finally kick in and pot'll become more affordable for all of us. Hey... I been tokin' for more than twenty years! It hasn't affected me negatively at ALL! Well --- unless you count that ignorant judge awarding my ex with sole custody of our kids because of an ignorant bias against weed as, "affecting ME negatively." Maybe more enlightened laws like the one in Colorado will stop that kind of discrimination!

SHORTER: "I like pot, and it pisses me off that other people don't. Therefore the law should be changed for my benefit."

And that, my friend, is what elections are for.

If you're being serious, then I for one would suggest that losing custody of your kids because of pot is a pretty negative consequence. Were it me, I'd drop the pot and do whatever I could to get my kids back. Priorities, and all....

Unfortunately you gotta roll with the punches my friend. You don't seem to phased by the loss of your parental rights. Pot before kids?

Quoting George Schultz: “For 40 years now, our nation's approach has been to criminalize the entire process of producing, transporting, selling and using drugs, with the exception of tobacco and alcohol. Our judgment, shared by other members of the commission, is that this approach has not worked, just as our national experiment with the prohibition of alcohol failed.”

George Schultz served as the United States Secretary of Labor and the U.S. Secretary of the Treasury under Nixon, and as the U.S. Secretary of State under Reagan.

George Schultz? I think I've heard of him, dude. Cool to have him on our side. I'll have to look him up... maybe we could share a doobie sometime...

This is SO cool that I don't have to worry no more 'bout bein' a criminal! Party on!!!

In his column of March 12, 2013, my beloved friend wrote on the issue of legalized marijuana in the state of Colorado. On his radio show, he justifiably bemoaned readers of his column who had written comments questioning his sanity and their relationship over this one issue despite years of being Prager groupies. I will not do any of that. But for only the second time in our long relationship, Mr. Prager, you are dead wrong on a topic … but I still love you.
