Please take the time to research CBD and THC synergy. I agree that there are some people that abuse cannabis but there are true medicinal benefits that we can reach if everyone was educated right and not fed lies. The truth is that medicinal marijuana today has thc that is way to high and cbd (which is a lesser known cannabinoid which acts synergistially with thc) that is too low. This is because thc is what has the psychoactive properties not cbd, cbd actually regulates the negative effects of thc which is confused with the thc being blocked or stopped by cbd. Therefore people want more thc rather than a sufficient amount of both thc and cbd. These are some of the effects of cbd.

Despite what Porky Limbaugh might tell you...being in-possession of the facts is not a crime...but, they surely DO come-in handy for smackin'-around someone as poorly-educated as yourself!!

Get with the times PA. Legalize it and make room in the prisons and the criminal justice system for real criminals.

"All I did was to try to show my support of that law." - Tedeaux

No...you're showing support for wasting MORE Federal-buck$ on a law that's making no discernible difference.

I'm "fairly" certain you can chalk-that-up to one MORE reason you "conservatives" are losing National-elections. You prefer (YOUR) beliefs, over (readily available) knowledge; i.e. "absolutes" vs. Reality.

"Just checking, but have the dems already taken our constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech away? The way you put it Shaman, we don't have the right as conservatives to voice our opinion on anything that might disagree with any of the President's left wing causes." - Tedeaux

"Nice" misdirection/distraction. The subject is the logic behind marijuana Prohibition.

If you prefer to consider that a "left wing cause" (that has nothing-to-do with the President)....that's ALSO an issue where "conservatives" PREFER those good ol' timey "absolutes", rather-than the FACTS (available), that's your option...but, hardly the justification for arresting/imprisoning those folks that "conservatives" consider "undesirables".

Just checking, but have the dems already taken our constitutionally guaranteed freedom of speech away? The way you put it Shaman, we don't have the right as conservatives to voice our opinion on anything that might disagree with any of the President's left wing causes. Last time I checked, it was still against PA law, as well as Federal law to smoke pot. All I did was to try to show my support of that law.

"Everett said Pennsylvania is not traditionally a state that embraces progressive reforms."

How true this is. I wonder if it has to do with the Republican Party?" - rick424

*

It has more-to-do with people within the Republican Party.

That Party has a tendency to draw people who are (typically) afraid of their own shadow...let-alone anything new & different. They're much-more "comfortable" with the Status Quo...where there are no decisions to be made, or risks ventured...which pretty-much explains their need for "absolutes".

It is nearly ipossible to argue against the fact that the "war on drugs" is a losing battle. So much has been spent chasing after and imprisoning people who smoke a plant (not much different than tobacco) that is deemed illegal. Legalize it, just like alcohol and tobacco, and then tax the crap out of it. Let adults decide if they are going to use it or not.
