Warning: Don’t Screw Up Legalization

December 31, 2013

It’s a wonderful thing to finally see the legalization of marijuana that is creeping across America. I was beginning to think I wouldn’t live to witness it. But, knowing how you humans ruin everything you touch and that you can even fuck up a wet dream, I worry that ya’ll will screw this up too. Remember that Washington and the anti-marijuana boneheads are watching this experiment and hoping for its failure. Don’t give them that satisfaction.

To the users in these legalized jurisdictions, I beg you… Don’t be stupid. Abide by the laws and regulations. Don’t buy weed legally and sell it to minors or transport it to states that haven’t yet legalized. And, just because it’s legal, you don’t have to be wasted all the time. Use responsibly.

To the bureaucrats and merchants in these legalized jurisdictions… don’t be your usual greedy selves. Remember that if legal marijuana costs more than on the black market, then that’s where many users will continue to buy it. You will have defeated the whole purpose of legalization. You are in competition with the illegal drug dealers so set the tax policy and prices accordingly.

Successful legalization will be measured by putting the drug dealers out of the marijuana business so that kids can’t get their hands on it. Only cheap, regulated and readily-available pot, used responsibly, will do that. I want legalization to come soon to my red state. If you screw this up now, not only will the legalization wave come to an end, but you people in Washington, Colorado and California will lose this hard-won freedom that has taken eight decades to achieve. If you ruin this for me, you’ll have one angry gray alien to contend with.

    Good luck with this one! So now we will not only have people driving drunk we will have people driving stoned. So basically twice the problems on the road and at work. Trains, semi-trucks, bus drivers etc. Oh yes America is going to pot alright. Great.

      You can’t be serious! Do you really think that, because pot is illegal, people are not already driving stoned? The only problem I’ve seen caused by stoners on the road is that they drive too slowly. Legalization won’t increase the number of stoned drivers. Long-haul truckers have always been known for being hopped up on speed so they can stay awake. Several train wrecks have been caused recently because the engineer was texting instead of paying attention. The transportation system is full of people high on drugs ( prescription and illegal) or distracted by technology. You’d better sell your car and take up walking… but avoid the roadways. It’s a jungle out there.
