you missed my point entirely kevin. one can go to costco and buy as much liquor as you want. why is that? because there is nothing unsafe about it. why would you settle for a law that limits the amount of cannabis you have? why is an ounce ok but a pound not? what if i grow? as soon as i harvest i am in violation of the law. I currently have authorization from my doctor to posses five pounds. All i had to do was go in, state my need, and explain that I grow. He was happy to up my limits. Any medical patient COULD do the same. ill say it again, what we have in place now in the medical states is hands down better than these quasi legal laws. These laws create new felonies and are written with no foresight. dont settle for this bullshit people. demand real change and cannabis legislation written by people who have fully thought this through....It doesnt matter tho. we wont get a real legalization law passed till the baby boomer generation is all gone...too many old voting mofo's stuck in the 1950's


why would your doctor write you a "prescription" to possess 5 pounds at one time? That's like giving a years worth of "pain medication" at one time. Sounds like your loophole is being threatened. Also no one mentioned medical MJ besides you, not all of us live in states where we can "legally" possess 5 pounds at once. From my individual point of view, this is indeed ground breaking, sorry if you don't agree because you might not be able to possess 5 pounds at one time.

clearly you dont understand the physics of growing. five plants in my yard gives my five pounds. i have the authorization to have five pounds because that is what i harvest. It is not even comparable to "getting a years worth of pain meds at once". the fact the you even compared cannabis to a pharmaceutical drug shows to me that you are not worth debating with after this post. under these laws, as soon as you harvest, you break the law. what kind of legalization laws wont let you grow your own? do you honestly think that citizens should not be able to grow? sounds like you kinda resent the fact that i have figured out a way to get a years worth of cannabis for about 25 cents a gram. Getting a bad law repealed and replaced with a sensible one will be much harder than waiting another 10 years and getting a real legalization law passed.

this makes me ill...just follow the money...

want to open a legal operation to sell cannabis? nope, holder's going to come down on you...

want to launder money for murderous mexican drug lords? no problem, as long as you have a powerful lobby and make some huge campaign contributions

great work...liars, hypocrites, puppets of the truly wealthy...our gov't bought and paid for and brought to you by Global Megabank Inc.

YORK — When the Justice Department announced its record $1.9 billion settlement against British bank HSBC last week, prosecutors called it a powerful blow to a dysfunctional institution accused of laundering money for Iran, Libya and Mexico's murderous drug cartels.

But to some former federal prosecutors, it was only the latest case of the government stopping short of bringing criminal money laundering charges against a big bank or its executives, at least in part on the rationale that such prosecutions could be devastating enough to cause such banks to fail.

They say it sounds a lot like the "too big to fail" meme that kept big but sickly banks alive on the support of taxpayer-funded bailouts. In these cases, they call it, "Too big to jail."

"Shame on the Department of Justice. Shame on them," said Jimmy Gurulé, a former federal prosecutor who teaches law at the University of Notre Dame.

"These are actions that facilitated major international drug cartels to continue their operations," he said. "Now, if that doesn't justify criminal prosecution, I can't imagine a case that would."
