I won't be surprised if Obama enacts the decriminalization of Marijuana as a federal crime and it will be totally thrown to the states.  Here in PA we have it for medicinal uses but if states like NY, DE, NJ and MD legalizes it as a recreational drug, then PA will be forced to so as not to lose hundreds of millions annually to those states.

He can not repeal an existing law.  However, he has pretty much ignored this law and not enforced it.  He's done the same with immigration and the Defense of Marriage Act. It's part of the Rule of Law that must be restored.  A POTUS ought not be able to pick and choose the law to inforce and those he will ignore.  There is a Constitutional process for repealing and changing laws and it ought to be followed. People lose respect for all laws, when some are enforced while others are not!

not too fussed about it. Its like guns. People who wanna get high will get em anyway. Might as well tax em.

Yes, that's the argument used here to legalize the stuff.
The problem I have with that statement is, if that's to be the case, why not legalize breaking/entering?  Look at how we'd reduce the population of prisons and improve the recidivism rate.
Next they could legalize mugging, and, finally, murder, because (what the heck!) it's already legal to kill the newborn.  Might as well be consistent.
Piiiittthhhh on that argument.  The last thing we need is more potheads on motorcycles, or businessmen high on pot.  The accident rate caused by drunks is already too high, without adding potheads to the mix!
And it's a real gateway drug.

Nothing but trouble in the future.

cuz at the end of the day those things hurt other people. Dont worry the bussinessmen stupid enough to get high while working will lose the company and the motorcycle guys will kill themselves. Natural selectioin will take care of the idjits.

Considering the populace there, and the Hollyweird bunch, it pretty much already was. At least the vote didn't come as a surprise.

My daughter worked a late shift with a guy who is a regular user of pot.  I would call him an addict.

Things got busy and hectic, and he went off on my daughter where she was truly afraid of him.  They generally had a decent relationship.  He ranted, raved, ravaged the back room, etc.  She was very close to a 911 call.

For all those who think that pot is benign and people just get MELLOW on it, think again.  Regular use is dangerous to your lungs as well.  It has no filter, and people intentionally inhale large amounts. 

My former boyfriend was a different person when he used it, and not in a good way.  It is not without its problems.

Colorado is having second thoughts.    The problem?     It goes back to the tax revenue generated by the marijuana.

Oregon is counting their tax revenue from pot.

Wait until the cartel sells pot cheaper that the State sponsored businesses can.

It's like the casinos, every year the tax funnel got bigger and bigger.
