When Marijuana Get Legalized, You're Gonna See Some Serious Shit

I think it's safe to say that alcohol just isn't as cool as marijuana. Alcohol is normalized and accepted into society. It's sold in mass produced bottles, there's only a few major brands per type of alcohol (as far as a college kid like myself is concerned). It's not like the average guy is brewing his own tequila. And I don't think most people develop good relationships with their local liquor store. Let's contrast this with weed. Weed isn't accepted into society, at least not officially. Because of its "underground" and illegal properties it's a bit of an adventure to go out and buy some. People do in fact grow their own weed that they're really proud of. There are thousands of different kinds of weed, and then there's the thousands more kinds that aren't actually new kinds but are other kinds that are just renamed. Weed is a bit magical. Which was why
this article interested me.

Very simply, the author's talking about what's going to happen to the state of getting high if weed gets legalized. Weed is going to be put under the same economic logic as any business. So prepare for weed pills labeled with precise dose counts of THC. They'll put a number on how much of a head high you'll get. They're going to take all of the magical properties of weed and make them a matter of science. You'll probably even smoke weed that's been genetically modified and patented, so that when you come across a seed you'll be slapped with a lawsuit if you try to plant it for yourself. Not to say that we shouldn't legalize weed. But as we bring marijuana into the light it's important to ask what type of world we're going to bring it in to.

  4. Its better to keep that shit illegal, cause if its legalized, it would (like you mentioned) be wayyy too complicated, and prolly' be double or triple what you can get it for on the streets.

    Much love and $upport headed your way broham!

  8. I hear a lot of friends here in Denver expressing their skepticism of the legalization of weed. I've heard it all: quality will go down, prices will go up, government will regulate it like tobacco and put chemicals in it, etc...
    And frankly I think it's all BS. We call it 'weed' for a reason. It grows Everywhere all the time and does not require extensive knowledge to grow and harvest.
    From what I have seen in the past year with Denver's medical MJ scene, things are looking greater than I had anticipated.

  11. It should be legalized. Deaths aren't caused by it. Only deaths on roads while stoned, but that risk is worse with alcohol anyway. It's a joke. Brilliant post. I followed hope you can follow back.

  13. Sounds like a good world to me

    I'd rather trust science than 'some guy' to how good the weed is

    minus the seed bit... that obviously wouldn't happen, can't copyright nature
    and they'd get into more shit than you if you found a seed, due to laws against the spreading of GM crops/foods, and the required security needed to grow them (GM fish aren't even allowed near sea)

    also price will go down, crime will go down and (based on portugal and amsterdam) usage will go down
