    Much rather spend my money on teachers than prison guards.

    So the prison industry would lose out on the income they derive from imprisoning people who don't belong in prison. Boo freaking hoo - let them close.

    Unfortunately, probably pretty powerful.

    If pot was legal, maybe law inforcement could concentrate on more important stuff that is not victimless like rape, murder, theft, etc.
    So what if we need less prisons/prison guards? At least we'll know that the people who are incarcerated will deserve to be there.

    BTW, aren't prison guards just people who can't pass the muster to be police officers?
    Lower the standards to become a police officer, and the prison guards will still get work. :p;)

    The prison guards could become security guards at head shops :)

    I live in the North Bay in California. The owner of our local marijuana clinic is actually running for City Council and I suspect has a good chance of winning. I know people who use the medical marijauna. In some ways it has gotten worse under Obama than under Bush. Private plantings have been raided and destroyed by local law enforcement despite California law saying they can grow a certain amount. The problem we suspect is that law enforcement was given some sort of grant and they are spending the money. Also Obama could make Marijuana a level 2 drug with a stroke of a pen. (Meaning Rite Aid and CVS and Walmart couild sell it out of their pharmacies) and he hasn't. This is not political. I cannot see Romney suddenly turning Libertarian and changing the law either. I personally hate the stuff because I hate all smoking. (Eat your brownies!)

    Denver ish...
    The word on the street in Denver is that getting a doctors OK to smoke MJ is just as easy as buying a loaf a bread. If you have the money, the 'doctor' says 'OK'. There are pot shops all over the place in metro Denver.
    I am not a drug user. (except for chocolate, and I am trying to get that brown monkey off my back)

    Indeed AA but not the movie the quote is from. Well I can't be sure since I never saw the one you mention. I was quoting a line he used at the end of a Steven Seagull movie. He was talking to Tom Arnold on a talk show.

    Since Marijuana is not a schedule 2 drug, no. The doctors visit is covered.
