That scenario asks Washingtonians to vote strategically and perhaps make some temporary sacrifices in order to more rapidly win the war. Maybe that's not a fair thing to ask, because nobody can guarantee them that their example will ultimately lead to victory.
Folley said:You're right, this is the first law, and who's to say there will be any more following this one? If this law comes into power than we're not going to see the major reform that we all want for another 10 years at least

Folley said:and yeah, now we can't grow weed... but the penalties for doing so are very light. If we pass 502 those laws become very stiff

Folley;10854218 said:WE have the power to change these laws, they cannot ignore this issue any longer, but for you people to say we should give up the last 100 years of fighting just so we can have legal weed a little bit sooner (instead of, you know.... actually voting for a fair and just law) is frankly just ridiculous.

There's gonna be far more opportunity of debating and working out the kinks once law changes then there is of finding your "perfect bill" in the next ten years.

23536;10862454 said:514 was also not mentioned in the story because it's not on the ballot
further legalization can come in another bill.

You're saying that you're so afraid of losing your crop that gets you a thousand of dollars at a time? Sounds like you are lining your profits by weed being illegal.
Folley;10862118 said:No, you get a $200 ticket if the cop doesn't like you. If he does, he's probably just going to take your shit.
