    Just when you thought the 2 and only states where Cannabis is legalized make it to the superbowl was a coincidence, NJ, where the superbowl will be held, follows in their footsteps...

    “This is a waste of law enforcement resources and taxpayer money. And a marijuana conviction can have tragic long-term consequences for individuals. People may lose jobs or be unable to secure employment because of a criminal record. Students who incur a marijuana conviction can lose their student loans. The punishment doesn’t fit the offense and New Jerseyans agree we should remove penalties and instead tax and regulate marijuana.”

    Advocates are applauding the senator’s announcement as a common sense measure that is long overdue. “Studies have repeatedly shown that whites and blacks consume marijuana at similar rates, yet people of color overwhelmingly suffer the criminal consequences,” said Udi Ofer, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of New Jersey. “In New Jersey, African-Americans are arrested for marijuana possession at a rate of close to 3-1 when compared to whites, despite similar usage rates. The time has come to tax, regulate, and legalize marijuana for personal use.”

    consider that the doc was not meant or made for people like u who already know it and possibly live it, before u dis it, and maybe before u even finish watching it icon_question.gificon_idea.gif

    If you already knew most of the stuff in it, what were you expecting to learn or see new ? Jesus, himself break thru the clouds with an answer to the problem icon_biggrin.gif? There are tens of millions of people who need to be enlightened / educated as to the effects of our decades long drug war at our own taxpayer expense, who know nothing about all the lives ruined by our so called "war on drugs"

    I've known so many people that smoke up in college, and have had housing taken away.
    I really hope this does get to senate.
