Legalize it, but don't corporatize it.....

I smoke Marijuana like a chimney. I used to smoke weed a few times a year behind closed doors. Recreational is newly legalized in localville. We call it "the new reality" and it is very strange. I wish I could send pictures of some of these products back to the 1970s....the advertising is unreal. The young folks use vaporizers, edibles, and CBD oil but the dispensaries still keep some low-priced flowers around for us aging flower children. The seeds aren't something you have to clean out of your < strikethrough > weed < /strikethrough > Marijuana or Cannabis any more, they cost $10 apiece for nonfeminized low-end strains!

I'm only allowed to grow six plants. Mine could all be male for all I know. I've never grown the stuff before in my life. It's a delightful addition to my garden--easy to care for, grows fast, lots of fun and makes me feel like a much better gardener than I actually am.

But......

The old men who bought the land when it was cheap because they never really could come back from Nam can't afford the taxes. They could lose their land if they can't sell their product--and they can't! The market is glutted. Most dispensary weed is grown in greenhouses. You can't just stop smoking it or cut back from buds to shake to pipe scrapings to "oh well". The growers who developed the strains you love, such as Jack Herer and Grandaddy Purple, are still going to trial in federal cases while we users cheerfully chomp CBD-infused chocolates and buy these things that are marketed as "prerolls"--a gram of sinsemilla wrapped up in a rolling paper with a cigarette filter at one end.

Mom and Pop farmers being driven off the land and into nursing homes or mental institutions is nothing new. I don't expect you to shed a tear for my Marijuana farmers when I have no tears left to shed for your strawberry farmers. I just hope that (collective) you will learn something from our mistakes.

Agribiz doesn't see anything special about Cannabis/Marijuana. It's just another way to make money to them.

I disagree. My life would have sucked a lot more without Marijuana. The Senior Citizens who risked their lives, went to jail, and frequently lost their families as well as their property to The War On Marijuana Growers deserve better than this.

I don't, and the few times I ever tried it found it had no effect so wasn't worth the bother.

Despite the fact I don't do drugs I'm for legalizing most because I believe far more evil is done in the name of drug suppression by authorities than could ever be done by all the addicts on earth. In the U.S. the "war on drugs" has been used as an excuse to take away more and more of our rights over time.
