    I think this is a situation where raw numbers tell a better story. Now, this is a year from legalization, not a calendar year, but that shouldn’t much affect the point here.

    NV traffic fatalities:



    2015: 321
    2016: 329
    2017: 305

    On the flip side, pedestrian fatalities are up.

    My best guess is that this is a combination of fewer people driving, thus the pedestrian increase, and the way the “Great Recession” greatly and negatively impacted visits to Las Vegas, where my guess is a large percentage of these fatalities occur. As things hit, trended down, and as things recovered, trended back up.

    Besides my actual job, this subject has gotten very personal. My life partner's mom has late stage breast cancer, fucking Russians do not go to doctors until you drag them there. She is now going through chemo w 4 different drugs at once. It is harsh and just an awful experience. She has never touched weed at all till this. I had my edible chef NY make her favorite orange chocolate with heavy dose of cannabis 84MG. She has half at a time and it gets her through the nausea and in fact while she has lost hair but she has hardly lost any weight at all and says the chocolate is the only thing getting her through it.

    Those that oppose it need to sit down with her and explain why it should not be legal. I doubt many have lost that much of their humanity they would be able to. You are either ignorant or have lost a significant part of your humanity to oppose this. Also, cancer is treatable if caught early rather than late stage, people go to the fucking doctor.

    I think it should be legal, but it impacts me zero, in Canada, America, anywhere.

    Legalize and use proceeds to lower taxes. Never happens that way. First the lottery then casinos now pot. Never helps you one bit to keep more of your hard earned money.

    Thank you Governor for implementing most of all the remedies we crafted in the Marijuana Justice Act at the federal level. Such an important step to remedy the effects of the overtly racist war on drugs. Thank YOU

    Young people in liberal states use more cannabis, but have lower rates of dependence

    https://www.theverge.com/2019/1/24/1...l-conservative

    Young people living in liberal states consume more marijuana, but have lower rates of marijuana dependence, according to a new study from Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. Crucially, this finding is true regardless of whether the state legalized medical marijuana, suggesting that the broader political climate affects how people use the drug. It also serves as a reminder that the effects of legalization will look different in different states.

    In general, people in both liberal and conservative states are consuming more marijuana. In a span of about eight years, ending in 2011, the percentage of people ages 18 to 25 living in liberal states consuming cannabis grew from 33 percent to about 37 percent. In contrast, the numbers for the same age group in conservative states went from about 25 percent to 26 percent.

    Similarly, fewer people in both liberal and conservative states are struggling with cannabis use disorder. People with CUD experience withdrawal symptoms like mood and sleep problems if they don’t consume cannabis for a while, and can’t stop using it even if it negatively impacts their life. The rates of CUD fell to 17 percent from 20 percent in liberal states. However, CUD rates only fell to 18 percent from 22 percent in conservative states despite fewer people in conservative states using marijuana to begin with.

    Q: who was the biggest douche that you have worked with?

    A: Eddie Van Halen hands down he threatened all the stage hands that if we wernt all pushed to the side when he got off stage that he would "bash our faces in"

    Now the new David-Lee-Roth-Van Halen album, “Tokyo Dome In Concert,” is available for purchase, and it’s super, super, super, super, super, super, crazy bad. - Doug Elfman
