Yeah, if you are drunk, and then smoke (especially without being an experienced partier), I'd put even odds on you chunking.

I can't remember that far back.

Seriously :lol

Smoking after I've already been drinking tended to give me the spins. God damn, the spins suck.

Big tobacco would do alright with pot, but not great. They'd undercut the people growing boutique grass and some people would jump on it. Many, many more would rather have good quality bud than cheap bud, though. There's also the number of chemicals to consider. My understanding is that Colorado bud is already highly chemical laden, and that doesn't go over real well. My hunch is that the tobacco industry would rather focus on vaping products in the US. The rest of the world is still quite happy to puff away on Marlboros.

And Hickenlooper always struck me as an interesting case. He seems to be demonstrating that you can be a highly popular politician just by listening to everybody, rather than only the members of your own party.

Yeah, smoking or vaping herb after a lot of drinking was a guaranteed puking back in my college days. I'd have to drink a A LOT though. I'm talking the days when I'd drink a 750 of vodka and then get in on a joint somewhere. Instant disaster. Today though, if I'm only drinking 7 or 8 beers, smoking is a non-issue.

Dallas just passed an ordinance making possession up to a QP a non-arrestable offense, albeit still criminal. That's about as good as we can do in this state. While you'll still wind up walking some dogs or washing fire engines, and spend a bit of time on probation, it's a helluva lot better than all of that + go to jail.

And the QP starting threshold always struck me as odd. I never understood if it was intended to be highly generous or really cruel.

Connecticut current governor announced yesterday that he will not be seeking a third term (does happy dance). I'm hoping this means legalization will actually be plausible with the next administration.

I hope so too; it still astounds me that he wasn't on board with that, especially given the financial woes that we've been experiencing.

The one downside to that announcement? I think we've just subjected the nation to Dannell Malloy.   He's had national aspirations for a while now.

No doubt. He's been gunning for a transportation department gig in DC from what I understand. As far as the weed thing goes , I've read that he's taken a lot of money from CT's alcohol distribution industry.

I'm not saying legalizing weed would suddenly make CT perfect, but if there was ever a time for a guaranteed massive tax hail Mary that public would happily pay, this was it.
