    Life, death and taxes. Three things you can pretty much count on.

    Any guesses as to the likelihood it plays out the same way for both?

    You really have this Black white thing going Right GEEZ............

    I got this......so that city black man is actually the janitor at the court house and goes in the same day, time and court room as the white man. He sees the Prosecutor that knows him. White man walks in and doesn't know a sole...white man ends up getting 1yr in prison. Black man gets CWOF and probation for 6 months and class.....so where is the justice LOLOLOL.

    We have a flawed system that is never going to be even.....


    So the real question is who loss in this...... WE did because we TAX payers paid for this to happen due to the shitty laws on herb..

    If you truly believe it is a harmless plant and if your support for legalization is a principled position on the negative impacts on society arising from the current laws, then why would anything less than making it legal and giving the government no role be acceptable?
    Does that list of events not sound like progress to you? Because it sounds like slow and steady progress to me. It also sounds like compromise. Isn't compromise fairly important in a polarized society? So I ask: What should 'we' be doing? Stomping our feet demanding we get it 'our way'? Because I think the answer will be 'then you get nothing'.

    Remember earlier when you made comments about how it was nice to debate civilly? This is you taking it in an un-civil direction, by keeping an issue alive that really is being propped up by you. I don't think anyone has called you a racist, so quit crying about it.

    I said it was an issue that the majority should decide several days ago. I said I would be fine with either outcome days ago. I said all the polls indicated it would pass days ago.

    I have my objections and I voted against it, but I won't give it a second thought after it is passed.

    I'm not nearly as wrapped up in the socio-economic-politics of this as some of our SJW's and in retrospect I think passing it might be a good thing because a number of them clearly needed an easier way to mellow out.

    Shall we discuss charter schools?

    Sure. Charter schools are still a long way from proper educational freedom, but at least are a step in the right direction.

    A. He said "bud". (Best beavis and butthead chuckle)

    B. On the bright side we now have something in Mass. that our NH neighbors will cross the border to buy here instead of the other way around.

    Perhaps a fireworks for weed barter system will develop between the states

    Re: Q4: Legalize Recreational Marijuana

    So my question is, after Dec 15th, the dispensaries that are currently up and running for people who have medical Marijuana cards, will they open the doors to the general public at that point?

    Re: Q4: Legalize Recreational Marijuana

    No, a regulatory framework for recreational retail distribution must be developed. I believe the target date for retail openings is 1/1/2018.

    There were supporters on TV last night masking the good point that Mass. does not have to re-create the wheel on this as other states have already figured it out reasonably well.

    I believe there is also a provision that gives local communities a vote over whether to permit retail in their city or town by vote.
