The real worry

March 11, 2014

A recent letter compares pot to other legal drugs, like tobacco and alcohol. It appears the comparison is made to negate the guilt of those recently busted for mailing pot from Arizon....

Interesting! I'd always assumed you were a local, who's development HADN'T been fully-arrested at 14-years-of-age!

My mistake.

You misremember. Nothing was off-limits, including making stuff up. See: Dan Rather. - Ritty77

Ah, yes...all the locals remember THAT segment, on "60 Minutes"...when WYOU "mysteriously" went black...for those 20 minutes.

Rmiller, I have been listening to him as long as I can remember. He is misunderstood by many but he has millions of listeners and has been in the business a LONG time. He is one of the most brilliant interviewers in media. He's the only talk radio I listen to.

Your post is interesting...this is a strange one. A 777 just doesn't disappear....just saying...

That Malaysian plane made a 90 degree left turn over the ocean. Computers don't make that "mistake", humans do. Thus, whatever the end of the story is, somebody in that cockpit made a left turn.

Actually beside a few loyal listeners, it looks like liberal listeners boost their ratings; they seem to know a lot more about what they say than most conservatives and libertarians. -Phil

Phil, I kinda have to laugh every time I see shaman and some others on here "quote" what is said by Limbaugh and company. One doesn't even have to listen to them to get a brief of their dialog from some on here. Personally I don't give any of the talking heads from both sides the time of day. It's all merely entertainment to stir up the loyal followers and one is no worse than the other. I get my talk show entertainment everyday from Howard Stern and he stays clear of politics. LoL

This analysis of yours is backed by what?? Yes I do listen(off & on) so I can know 1st. hand what they say. It does however filter straight through the "Conservative/TP system", I hear the same talking points constantly. It is what it is, I just usually do not agree with them. I do however find amusement that these people(backgrounds & all),& their "thoughts" are followed(almost to the point of worship) so closely by some.-Have a Great Evening!!-Scott

Legalize, but hold users accountable for their actions.

Test positive after an accident, report it to their car insurance company.

Get injured and test positive, report it to their health insurance company.

If I remember correctly, "Dubya's" eloquent past was off limits to bring up.(he was a heck-of-a oil man, when sober, from my understanding) If pasts are so important, How did a person(the God Father of Conservatives) whom leads a small army of "ditto heads" become so much of an influence, being a drug addict & all?? How about Beck,(food hoarder, & much longer irrational list) & his Army of "B___kerheads" become so influential to Conservatives/TP?? Seems to me to be a strong case of "Do as I say, not as I do"--Which leads to Newt, & his harem, but that's another story...-Have a Nice Day!!!-Scott

Another troll post from the king of trolls. Totally irrelevant to this discussion or anything else for that matter.

Never mind marijuana, we need to be able to get Coca Leaves from Bolivia and Peru. Their presidents have been attempting to get the UN to allow sales of the leaves for years. Yes, you can make cocaine if you have a ton of leaves, but individuals don't buy a ton.

I doubt if I could walk the high altitudes of the Andes without chewing the leaves. You don't get hungry and you don't feel tired. Your legs do get sore, but you can walk all day without eating.
