California to Legalize Marijuana? Why?

From The Curse of The Illusioned:

As a lawsuit threat letter from Marlboro proves, something like these cig joints were around for a while — until Marlboro got pissed.

There have been stoner rumors for years about how Marlboro has “Marlboro Greens” already patented and tested for the day the green dope is  finally legal, and since it’ll be on the California ballot in a scant half-year, it looks like that day is close since every one and their mother (and in many cases, their grandmother) smokes and advocates marijuana usage.

But I don’t get it. I don’t understand why everyone’s so stoked on it. Look past the whole “it’s about time the government gets with the times” or the “it was never legalized because they couldn’t figure out how to economize it but now we need it to combat the budget deficit” shit, let’s look at it like any other crop (i.e. tobacco) or any other substance (i.e. alcohol) or other food (i.e. beef) law.

Let’s think about it with a few questions I’d like to raise:

  1. Do we as a general public really have any issues with it’s legality right now? Let’s face it, it’s not simply illegal: it’s decriminalized. Meaning get caught with over an ounce and then you’re fucked with something more than a fine that would be like you picking up three sacs from the dude across the 7–11. An ounce is a lot of dope, a lot more than the average consumer smokes — and even then, to the average consumer that does purchase in that high a quantity, how often are they leaving their house with ALL OF IT (aside to deal it). We still smoke our jays in our houses and backyards and balconies, free of heavy worry for adults, and even for kids they know that they’ll be gone by the time the smell is, by the time the cop could possibly catch a whiff of it. At this point a good percentage of cops — I have no evidence for this — are cool with it and won’t even bother if you’re caught with a dub sack. Think about it. No one who wants to smoke marijuana is scared because it’s illegal.
  2. Just because it’s legal doesn’t mean it’s free of restrictions. Like tobacco and being 18 to smoke outside only, or like alcohol and being 21 to only drink indoors, or like being in Amsterdam and being unaware of the laws behind the legal dope: technically it’s still against the law to smoke it outside in public, outside of the coffeeshop establishments. The simple case-in-point being that in continental Europe no one generally gives a shit as long as you’re not blowing it in kid’s faces and talking shit to everyone. Plus you still can only buy 5 grams per coffeeshop. Relate it to the ten-foot-pole-up-the-ass United States: you won’t be able to smoke in public, you’ll have to be twenty-one, insert something else here. Think about it.
  3. Tobacco’s legal too. But can you buy pure tobacco anywhere? Of course not, because it’s full of preservatives/chemicals/god-knows-what in whatever form you buy it. Cigarettes, pipe, rolling tobacco … It all has some kind of shit in it, even if it claims organic there’s still some type of regulation on the farming of the crop or the seed the farmer uses … So let’s hypothetically place marijuana in the same category: we may be able to grow x amount of plants in our own backyard and not fret, but where will the seed have to come from? Or where will it come from the easiest? Think about it.
  4. Marijuana cigarettes. Literally. Like that image above, fucking Marlboro greens. Why the fuck wouldn’t this happen — we’d rather smoke a fag than roll one, why would we want to keep rolling our own fat jays if they came pre-rolled? And Big Tobacco companies, as they put it, are one of the biggest in the nation/world … Gods know how much herb would actually be inside one of these cigarettes, and the government wouldn’t require them to tell us either — just like with tobacco. We buy a pack of greens for $10 (taxed for another $3) then smoke one every hour to get our small dosage of THC and nico-chemicals … Then somehow crave a real cigarette. Think about it.
  5. Bye bye dealers. Sure, maybe for a few years there would still remain the same dealers we all knew, but with new restrictions being placed on the cultivation and marketing of marijuana (for economic/monopoly reasons, as we’ve been saying for forty years against its illegality), without the proper papers based on its growing or proper license to sell, dealers would still remain just as underground as before — with their prices going up just like in the now-legalized cannabis clubs. They’ll have to work harder to produce and maintain their crop as well as their sales, how could any price just remain steady? Everything will change. Think about it.

I’ll continue to this list as I get more time, but it seems so clear that this isn’t just to make us happy–they would’ve done that twenty years ago if that were the case. False consciousness, people. Look it up.

My opinion is VOTE NO to this proposition on the ballot in November. It’ll just contribute to making rich companies richer, infecting our bodies further with even more chemicals (through something we all trusted and loved and let our lives change for so long), pleasing the working class by making us all think we “achieved” a victory with democracy, disillusioning us even further. It’ll destroy any hope we have left of our flailing generation to make a change, and completely obliterate our children’s generation.

If you read this and have a discrepancy, or valid research to disprove what I’m trying to say somewhere here, PLEASE don’t hesitate to tell me.

    If it's legal you don't have to buy the fucking designer shit you can grow your own and do away with the BS anyways.

  • James J

    Sure, let's just keep things the way they are so we can keep more people in jail. Cops arrest people for smoking, growing, or distributing pot– let's end that, bottom line, and stop dumping so much money into imprisonment for non-violent offenders. This argument against legalization sounds like the same logic as the folks who say global warming is a myth– 'just keep things the way they are so we don't get corrupted by those who want to control us and make money off it'. I am not a fan of corporations in general (though it's only the ones controlled by criminal-minded folks which I dislike) but they will always be around to make money off something; we're better off having some degree of control than NOT having some degree of control. Let's quit being paranoid and do something progressive for once.

    • shay

      Pot growers don't grow and sell pot as some sort of political protest or statement, they do so to make money! Period! You fuckers want it legalized? Fine, then you can smoke the governments shit and I'll be out back smoking my boutique kush!~!!! I've smoked the so called “Legal” weed and it's fucking shit and I'd rather not pay twice what I pay now!!!!

      Do you honestly believe that if your government decriminalizes pot that it will in anyway benefit you as a pot smoker?

  • James C

    GREAT ARTICLE! I've been a patient in California for 8 years now and I have to agree that completely legalizing cannabis to anyone is a bad decision. One problem is the fact the for frequent smokers, metabolites of THC can be detected in the body for up to 45 days. In that respect, it is virtually impossible to accurately test for DUI/DWI under the drug. This is because of the fact that size, metabolism, and retention of the metabolites varies from person to person so you could have been smoking a bowl a month ago, get pulled over and tested, and still receive a DUI and a night in jail. An ounce IS a large amount and if you figure everyone is allowed one…. Choosing to go with a pure smoke instead of a “green” cig WOULD cause you to go to a dealer because not everyone can afford or would know how to grow well.This would definitely cause the prices to go up even higher than before, the only difference being the dealer is now legal and would have a storefront, and the product would be similar to buying the finest beluga compared to buying standard caviar.

      Wow there are so many reasons why this is retarded I don't even have time to start. Someone, please tell James here why this is ridiculous while I go back to work.

    • oman28

      Where I live in Australia the authorities have recently introduced drug testing of motorists which includes marijuana, amphetimines and ecstacy. A friend of mine had been smoking one night and then was pulled over the next morning and breathalised for marijuana. The test proved negative. So while THC can remain in the system for 2 – 4 weeks, a blood test would be required to detect it.
      Also the product needs to be fully legalised as opposed to just decriminalised. Since decriminalisation in the state of South Austalia , many companies force their workers to undertake blood tests for marijuana under threat of dismissal. Decriminalisation has done nothing to remove the black market and has led to an incease in crime as people are arming themselves to defend their backyard plants from thieves.

  • http://IraDeZeus.com Zeus

    If it's legal to sell marijuana cigarettes, consumers can CHOOSE which one is best for them. If they're not happy with the product the big companies are selling, they can grow by themselves.

    Any kind of prohibition is a piece of freedom we are losing. We don't need prohibition, we need critical consciousness to choose what is best for us and everyone else.

  • DeepCough

    A libertarian argument is definitely warranted on this issue, because taxing a substance that governments on the local, state, and federal have spent billions on prohibiting just to offset growing deficits is like paying someone for crashing into your car and then walking away without restitution. No doubt, there are plenty of things that could go wrong with legalization, but it's not like the current system is doing anyone any good, and those “big corporations” ain't exactly going without profit as drug laws stand now. The problem here is that no one wants a serious solution to the problem, just keep things the way they are, and all of a sudden, they'll work themselves out. To that, I will quote Penn Jillette by saying, “Bullshit.” Haven't enough resources been lost to the doctrine of “illicit substances” already?

  • braveHeart

    What amazes me is this assumption that if it's legalized in some small way they're just going to open the jailhouse doors and let all the pot convictions walk free. Is there anything in this legislation to that effect? Anything about legalizing it for the home-grower without having to have a medical marijuana pass?

  • dumbsaint

    It will be interesting to see what restrictions are placed on growing if it is legalized. Presumably the bill is only going to be passed if there is profit to be made (for corps or by taxes). One or two plants are easily grown and would produce enough for most households.

    It would be more than a little insulting for them to say 'weed is now legal -but only if you buy it from us'

    • GoodDoktorBad

      Thats the part I'm concerned with.
      Since some profitability would be lost if anyone could grow it legally. People would still buy the commercial stuff, just like some people buy- instead of grow tomatoes. The price of commercial weed would have to be priced to balance with the ease of growing at home. A convenience market, like tobacco or alchohol which can be grown or made at home, but most people don't bother because its easier to buy.
      If the price is too high, because of taxes or profit concerns, people will turn more to growing….

  • werdy

    1. In order for the legal user to have their ounce of pot, even if cops are “cool” with this amount, someone has had to, along the way, possess more than an ounce of pot. Even if you buy 8th's from someone who only buys a single ounce at a time, someone else had to possess more than that at some point. In other words, to paraphrase your view on legalization, it is somehow acceptable to put at risk of arrest and/or physical violence the people who enable you to use this drug, as long as you yourself do not get busted. What massive sense of entitlement makes you feel like this is OK? And you have the gall to talk about workers rights at the end of this article? What about the workers who grow and transport your illegal pot? Fuck them, right? Send them to jail. As long you can still get high.
    There are legions of people (eg. growers, trimmers, traffickers, big-dealers and minor dealers) who assume the risks associated with getting your ass high. Sometimes they do it because of greed, sometimes for love of the product, lots of times because of desperation, and everything in between. These motivations are no different than those that drive people into auto factories, restaurants, investment banking or any other licit industry. If you are a pot smoker, and you have been given the opportunity to do so, please have the heart to thank these workers for the hours of fun and self-discovery they've risked their lives to provide you by voting YES on this proposition. You should be beating down doors and creating an active voter block to hit the polls in record numbers. If you do nothing or, worse, vote no, you are an ungrateful leech of a human being and should stop smoking pot before you give the rest of your demographic a bad name.

    2. The idea is not to remove all restrictions on the use of marijuana, but to redraw the legal lines of acceptability to mitigate the harms of marijuana criminalization to the user. Also to make the state money, but that's just the soft-sell. Of course there will be laws restricting marijuana's use. I can't think of a single act that is “completely” unrestricted in all circumstances, in the United States. Does that have any relevance to a rational cost-benefit analysis of recreational marijuana legalization, even from a libertarian/radical perspective? No. The proposition is for fewer legal limits on the production and consumption of pot, which means fewer bodies in jail. To say that the inconvenience of new regulations to you, the user, somehow compare to those faced by people in prison possession(possibly for life with 3 strikes) is complete bullshit.

    3. You can grow Tobbacco and dry it yourself, thereby getting pure smoke if you're looking for it. You can even buy heirloom plants from small growers for this purpose, cutting out corporations. While annoying, it is possible. This may not end up being the situation with weed (after all, not just anyone is allowed to distill liquor) but if it is, the chances that the major international seed-banks are already in existence will be willing to sell you high-quality varietal seeds is gi-fucking-normous. Hell, they're trying to do it right now.
    Also, the major R&D regarding weed strains has been happening in the gardens of small growers, many of whom have had to jump through plenty of hurdles to get adequate medical marijuana licensing. The entire premium marijuana aesthetic is built around getting the right strain grown and cured the right way. This market is not analogous to the cigarette-tobacco market. The majority of market demand is for passable, not incredible, cigarette tobacco (in the U.S.), and the plant itself has not gone through the same process of eroticization. When was the last time you heard of a tobacco centerfold? I could go to the convenience store down the street and look at one in High Times. Cigars, rolling, and pipe tobacco are a whole different bird though. Certain producers are sought after, and many coveted cigars are made under just the same non-corporate conditions that one could expect high-quality herb to come from were it to be legalized.

    4. See my comment on 3. The aesthetic of marijuana smoking is different than that of cigarette smoking. People want to use vaporizes, pipes with jimi-hendrix's face in them, bongs the size of China and, occasionally, blunts and joints. Seriously, if you're in such a hurry to get high that you need the same convenience that cigarette smokers have with death sticks, you're not doing it right.
    Worst case scenario, we'll have the next generation of stoners smoking Marlboro Greens instead of schwag when they first start out, and then quickly graduating to something that doesn't make them feel horrible. For an alcohol metaphor, Greens will be to real weed what Thunderbird is to real wine. Though really, I don't see a tobbacco conglomerate getting behind producing pot until it's nationally legal. If it's legal in CA and Illegal to the DEA, there going after the hugest retailer first, for the biggest pay-off in terms of seizure of illegal funds etc. A legitimate corporation isn't going to touch that. They've got easier ways to make money.

    5. See 3. Again, plenty of growers of award winning pot are growing legally in the US after jumping through the fuck-ton of hoops they needed to gain this status. And plenty of illegal growers are willing to risk their lives on the off-chance they make big money on your predilections. There has to be a couple of growers/dealers who will find that filling out some paperwork and getting proper documentation is easier than the pain in the ass of evading the massive surveillance networks of local governments and the US DEA. This is what happened with medical dispensaries in CA, why wouldn't it happen with recreationally legal storefronts?

    On the un-numbered 6th argument- If you're worried about putting money into corporate hands, you should be in support of anything that throws a wrench in the cogs of the prison industrial complex. The same people who make money off of cigarettes by owning Phillip Morris and RJReynolds stock also make a fuck-ton off of sending people to prison for pot by owning shares in Corrections Corporation of America and the like. Decriminalizing drugs is a major step towards dismantling the prison industry, and you can't feign intelligence about working class struggles in this country without acknowledging the impact of imprisoning and disenfranchising large sections of that working class for bullshit reasons.

    Not that I don't have any concerns about this prop passing. For example, I haven't seen any articles evaluating what the federal backlash might be. Just because the DEA isn't prosecuting locally legalized medical M. doesn't mean they won't come down on locally legalized recreational M. like a shit-hurricane. If not because they hate marijuana and what to uphold the status quo, than to maintain some kind of legitimacy as a law enforcement agency.

  • revh5

    1. Yes there are problems and too many gray areas with pseudo legality.
    2. You're saying 'don't remove the restrictions because then there will be restrictions'.
    3. You can buy 'pure' tobacco. You can also grow your own, if so inclined.
    4. There is much mass market beer, but again you can brew your own or you can buy from micro brews.
    5. Bye dealers? So what?

    ALWAYS VOTE FOR FREEDOM

  • VoteYES

    Alright I'm going to tell you why you're wrong on almost all points.

    1. The only thing you're right about is that most people don't care. There are still thousands of arrests made for marijuana in CA and have more marijuana arrests than any state and cops are still told it's a drug and there is no medical benefit from it. And a lot of people don't smoke it because it's illegal. Illegal = bad in most peoples mind, and there are many many people who think just because it's illegal it's wrong to do. They have nothing against it, other than the fact that it's illegal.

    2. I fail to see the problem or what you're trying to convey. Of course it will have restrictions, everything now a days does. Most places you're not aloud to smoke a normal cigarette, so it would be safe to think you wouldn't be able to smoke marijuana in those places either. And it seems like you're saying that having an age restriction is bad. Do you want children to smoke marijuana? I know I don't, and I don't see a problem with them having to wait until they're 21. They have to wait till they can drink (not taking into account college and the like).

    3. Actually you can grow your own tobacco without additives if you want. And a lot premium cigar and pipe tobacco DOESN'T have harmful additives. Is it pure tobacco? No, I'm not saying it is. You still need proper fertilizer and pesticides so as to not have destruction of the crop. The same can be said of any non-organic produce you buy, but the pests that attack tobacco cause even worse damage. Also there are a lot of seed banks that you can buy from that have hundreds of different strains, so you will be able to find “pure” seeds somewhere

    4. This is a very likely possibility, but it would honestly bring ruin to companies that did this. Marijuana is not like tobacco. With cigarettes it's mostly all the same stuff with just different flavors (menthol, lights, cloves) added in. Marijuana there are hundreds if not thousands of strains, each getting you high a different way. There is the bottom of the barrel stuff that barely gets people high, and then you have top quality, grown with care, medical grade marijuana. There are some strains that get you really sleepy and all you want to do is sit down and watch TV, while some make you happy and want to go explore the world. Why would people go for beer in a can, when they could have the top shelf with a choice between the best the world has to offer? Plus you make it seem like all of the high end dispensaries around CA will just disappear over night. These businesses are in place, and aren't going anywhere.

    5. …..so? I don't why you're defending the people that want it kept illegal the most. Dealers only exist because it's a black market and they make HUGE profits from it being illegal. A lot of people (myself included) do not like dealers as they can rip you off or rob you. Dealers are the reason a lot of people go on to do harder drugs, because that's where the real money lies. But it seems that you're also talking about growers in the same paragraph. With growers I believe we'll see EXPANSION, as they grower will be able to use what they know about growing to the full extents without having to watch out for DEA raids and such. Growers will become what microbreweries are to beer, high quality with high price tag but worth every penny.

  • closetgrower

    I grow my own, don't sell, don't tell, nobody knows. Growing penalties are far harsher in many (most?) states than penalties for possession.

    I live in another state, not in California. My state, though, is definitely looking to California for its future political direction. Which way this goes in California will have a large impact on the potential for future decriminalization of cannabis in this state.

    I hope this succeeds in California to set a precedent and move in a direction where I'm not committing a felony every single day, putting my freedom, money, and property at risk just to grow a plant.

    You're complaining about Philip Morris getting their fingers in the industry and selling inferior buds but have you forgotten about the 100,000 non-violent marijuana-related offenders currently incarcerated? Your points are valid but keep in mind the bill is simply part of a larger process. After legalization we will still have a long road ahead in battling social injustice as it pertains to food & drugs. As a part of that process this bill, with all the public debate it is provoking, still seems to be a step in the right direction.

    As a California resident, I think it is ridiculous to maintain the status quo described in this article. Think of all the time and energy being wasted on eradicating this plant, a plant that is also useful in far more practical ways than “getting high.”

    A strong, legal, government-approved hemp industry would do more to get the California economy back on track than all the hollow promises of “job creation” we here all too often from politicians on both sides of the aisle.

    Hemp. Hemp is banned too, as part of that class. That's why it needs to be legalized. It's not for the marijuana, it's to let us grow hemp again (like we used to in the early years of our country's existence). Hemp threatens the cotton manufacturers and the timber industry, among others. It's a strong, fast growing, lucrative plant that can be grown easily and sustainably, and be used to replace many of the products currently made by those industries. Hemp is already being used for clothes, paper, rope, and car interiors, among many other things. But we can't grow it here, we have to buy raw hemp from Canada or Europe.

    When the hemp ban was originally enacted, the drug part of it was a scare tactic used to convince voters to support the ban. Marijuana is only one plant of the hemp family, but the whole family was banned. See why?

    This is such a no brainer issue; At 14 and 15 years old I could get pot, acid, coke, speed, extacy, even herione from a guy from South America, the only drug I couldn't get was alcohol, I had to have someone else buy it for me, which I sold pot at that time so I could always get one of my older customers or my dad to buy me alcohol, but I couldn't get it without someone elses help because you have to have ID.

    1. 43% percent of the state do not want pot legalized.
    2. Do you really think they would actually allow you to shove into the faces of that other half of the state? At first its a proviledge, in time it will become a right.
    3. You CAN find organic tobacco and you CAN grow it in your yard. And I don't believe that all the many reputable seed sites/stores that exist now would compromise the purity of their sought after products.
    4. You CANNOT prevent major label companies from dipping their feet into close-knit markets. But you have the freedom to choose for yourself where/how you purchase your cannabis…
    5. The majorty of users say that they would be happy to be able to purchase their marijuana safely and legally. The black market wil only further taint its product as unfortunately, dealers will have to seek other means to keep up with all of California.

  • http://profiles.yahoo.com/u/W26OKF6LNGTWIWPVS5BD3WWQCY TheJay

    this dude is a complete fucking moron.

    California is not the only state in the union. People are scared to smoke. An ounce isn't ALWAYS a lot.

    You can't get pure tobacco because you can't grow tobacco in your fucking closet because it isn't that kind of plant. Weed is, though. You can grow your own fucking weed. Let's say theoretically you have to be licensed to grow… if possession is no longer a crime, who is going to search your house for plants?

    The idea that suddenly every commercially available form of marijuana would be laced with tobacco and other chemicals is insane. You know how when you take a puff of a cigarette, you DON'T hold the smoke in? Yeah, that's because you CAN'T, because it's full of tobacco and poison. What pot smoker is going to buy a weed cigarette that chokes you half to death when you hold your hit in? Fucking nobody, that's who.
