    kind of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite 75 years of federal marijuana prohibition, the Justice Department said Thursday that states can let people use the drug, license people to grow it and even allow adults to stroll into stores and buy it — as long as the weed is kept away from kids, the black market and federal property.


    In a sweeping new policy statement prompted by pot legalization votes in Washington and Colorado last fall, the department gave the green light to states to adopt tight regulatory schemes to oversee the medical and recreational marijuana industries burgeoning across the country.

    I don't care about weed and its kind of annoying how people who smoke it talk about it all the time, but I did see this on fb a few times today
    And felt special that I was ahead of 'the saloon curve.'

    that's cool, but before you start feeling too proud, remember that the saloon curve is based on mostly retards.

    How long now until the pro-pot people suddenly become anti-pot because the Tobacco industry completely takes it over.

    one small step forward but i'll take it.

    unfortunately, the next prez could say fuck that and unleash his atty general.

    the fed gubment broke damn near every treaty it ever made with the natives, i fear this may just be a temporary peace.

    we shall see. :toke: :flag: :yay:
