I wonder why people actually think that marijuana has a chance of becoming legalized. How would you compensate the countless thousands of inmates who are doing long stretches of time for essentially peripheral involvement with a plant that costs more to kill than to grow?
How would you fairly measure the amount of THC in a driver's bloodstream which would indicate a recognized level of incapacitation requiring the suspension of driving privileges? THC is stored in fatty tissue and can remain there virtually indefinitely.
Decriminalization for personal use may be a remote possibility, but the growing, processing and distribution of weed will never occur on the Federal level. That means that the acquisition of weed for personal use will continue to be a clandestine procedure and no tax benefits will be realized.
Oregon will repeal OCTA when the Feds cancel every form of funding to the state.
