I doubt it, prohibition doesn't work and it will be millions more taxpayer dollars down the drain to victimise otherwise law abiding citizens.

Just a question, but with pharmaceutical science the way it is now, isn't there an easier way to administer cannabinoids than smoking/vaping?

EDIT: science yo.

At the forefront drugs are illegal, and resources are allotted for this task of enforcing it. Efficiency is a natural, and favored.

According to the video 82% of Americans want drugs to remain illegal. With that I'd bring up the wisdom of the crowd.

Highly debatable, but were talking efficiency.

Personally....I don't care what people do (including OD) within the privacy of their own homes, as long as they're straight when in public. It might be a great way to "thin the herd".

I'm talking something a little more professional. :wink:

If you were suffering from any number of the symptoms medical marijuana users have, wouldn't you rather pop a pill and be done?

Very possible!

Most of the cannabinoids that account for the benificial effects are soluable in fat.
If you heat Cannabis suspended in (for example) palm oil, the cannabinoids will dissolve in the oil.
Filter out the leaves, and you've got a clean solutiuon of the active substances.

my nephew makes cannabis pills like this :roll:

Although the drop probably makes for some tender mutton. :P

Yeah when it dropped it near the end of the video, it did seem to double-take like it didn't mean to drop it.

With that I'd bring up the wisdom of the crowd.
In this situation it's more 'majority rules' than 'wisdom of the crowd'. I think that wisdom of the crowd would only represent the current status of a taboo (in this case) in society (assuming the sample is representative). It's not really a decision made due to innate function but instead cultural influence. Also, this is measuring the responses to a dichotomy that doesn't have a definitive truth like the weight of an ox or the number of jelly beans, so it's not a pool of estimates that would be expected to have a normal distribution (or even close to a ND; see below). Further, in this instance 82% of the people are 'right' (judging by current societal laws) whereas, in the true wisdom of the crowd, no one may be right but 68% of people's estimates would fall within a standard deviation of the true 'mean' if the sample had a ND. Though, in the case of the jelly beans especially, the distribution is probably right skewed since some people guessed as high as 30,000 but the lowest guesses were in the 400s or so.

Some recent developments on the wisdom of the crowd:

If you look at it like that than you're doing it just to keep busy..you should make the most out of it.

Get all the education ( including drivinglicences etc) they'll let you get.

Hell..you might even go towards weapon maintenance/repair and from there go to design.Or become a licenced gunsmith.

Something like that.Depens on what you like.

Use it to better yourself and to build a future, if you are serious about it.
Along with the unpleasant business of war...the army offers great opportunity.



Take it from an old man.. :D ( the advise I mean...not the soap)

GI Bill is nice as well. Get all the technical training you can (and experience to put on a resume) in the service, and then when you get out get your bachelor's in an area to complement it (or do something you like).
