NJ dispensaries, and / or those who support those dispensaries (in either the police or NJ state govt) are paying "protection" of some kind to the feds.

Oakland is not.

The "protection" could be in the form of cash, lucrative contracts, promises to back legislation, or any number of other things that Oakland and / or CA is not doing to the satisfaction of the feds.

If you simple understand that the US Federal Govt now operates like the worlds largest and most sophisticated mafia racket: a whole lot of things become clear.


and Colorado and Washington are going for total legalization in November...both will probably pass.

Once the rest of the country sees the tax revenue raised, the crime drop, the number of arrest drop dramatically and when tourist dollars start flooding into those two states...the other 48 will be legalizing too.

Will the FED come after all of them too? naaaaaa...the FEDs will levy a huge tax of their own and crawl back in their hole.


Once and for all, S-T-O-P asking for pot to be taxed! Am I on a liberty website, with like-minded folk? (It's not just you, using the word "tax"). PLEEEEEEEEEASE tax your own lifestyle and leave mine alone! I know it helps to soften the blow to the statists when you offer them a tax in turn for your freedom, but c'mon man? If it is "legalized" then taxed, we are just trading one form of totalitarian evil for another. We have to be consistent in opposing the State no matter the form of tyranny. I will non-violently resist and be detained if I have to, before paying a "pre-fine" for my behavior. Theft is theft, but don't give it to them until they pull their guns.

Anarchy is peace, government is war

Did I ask for pot to be taxed?

NO I did not. However, both Colorado and Washington are wanting to treat weed like alcohol....meaning it would be taxed. Of course....if a person wanted to throw a couple plants in with their vegetable garden and create their own supply....it should not be taxed.

Am I Missing Something?

Can't states just bring suite against the the federal government for infringing on state's rights and sovereignty?

I know that a citizen must be charged with a crime in order to fight the law that created that crime.

Are states the same way?

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

That's assuming the government of said state actually cared about it's citizens.

Wish one of the failing media companies would hire the Judge and start Freedom Watch back up. I am still pissed at FUX News about canceling that show.

Holy crap John Carter...

No truer words have been spoken about the importance of this plant..very few DPers really know the importance of this plant getting planted EVERYWHERE there is dirt on this planet..this plant MUST be grown WORLD WIDE! It is the ultimate "green energy" plant that would take this country out of debt in just a short time..I have spent 100's of hours researching this GOD SEND OF A PLANT and without question there is not one other plant that grows on our planet that has so much to offer..yet world wide this plant if in your possession could put you to death or put you in prison or fined. Big Oil/Pharma are the devil..nothing but lies have been told about this plant for 90 years..there should be ZERO taxes on this NON TOXIC vegetable..we NEED to grow it everywhere! FOOD FIBER FUEL and a medicine that CURES disease!!! Put that in your pipe and smoke it! This plant is truly a God Send and we must stop demonizing it and start to utilize it for what he intended us to use it for! And PLEASE stop calling it MARIJUANA..this is a racist term for this plant..call it what it is...Cannabis Hemp! (research how the term Marijuana is RACIST!!) has to do with them Colored boys and Mexicans smoking this stuff and wanting to rape the white woman...FACT. Many people enjoyed smoking that "Indian Hemp" that never gave anyone any problems..but then this Marijuana comes along and drives the minorities crazy to bang white woman and by God that there devil weed needed to get dug up from the roots and destroyed!! Funny thing is that Devil Weed was the Indian Hemp they enjoyed smoking everyday..in the words of Homer Simpson...DOH!!!!!!!!!!! and REEFER MADNESS here we come......please fellow DPers..wake up and educate yourself on this wonderful gift from God..it truly is a TREE OF LIFE in so many ways.
