New Poll Finds Majority of Americans Have Smoked Marijuana

According to a new poll released Monday, 52 percent of Americans over 18 have tried marijuana at some point in their lives. The survey conducted by Yahoo News and Marist Poll found that not only have most adults in the U.S. smoked pot, 44 percent of those who tried it once still use it today.

The poll, titled Weed and the American Family, looks at everything from family views on marijuana use to regulation, entertainment, social acceptability, and more. And of course it comes just in time for the unofficial holiday of cannabis culture that falls on April 20th each year.

Despite marijuana still being federally classified as a dangerous Schedule I drug, on par with heroin, American attitudes toward the drug have changed over time. The Yahoo-Marist poll found that, out of the respondents who have tried pot at some point, 65 percent are parents. In fact, people who are current marijuana users are slightly more likely to be parents, at 51 percent.

The poll also found that American parents aren't that worried about their kids smoking weed. Out of all parents surveyed (not just those who had tried marijuana), the leading concern is a fear that their kids will smoke cigarettes. It was true in reverse, too: those surveyed said they thought their own parents would be more upset if they smoked tobacco rather than marijuana.

Responses to legalization were varied. While more than 8 in 10 Americans (83 percent) support legalizing medical marijuana, people are evenly split on recreational policy — 49 percent of Americans support legalizing marijuana for recreational use while 47 percent oppose it, according to the poll.

And most (62 percent) respondents said they wouldn't use marijuana as a self-prescribed pain reliever even if it were legal.

Recreational marijuana use is now legal in eight states and the District of Columbia — with a majority of U.S. states offering legal cannabis products to patients for medical use.

Come on you other 48%, get with the program.

"We'll give you legal WEED, if you turn in your guns". The handwriting is on the wall folks. Fill out a 4473 lately? The part about drug usage? You won't be able to purchase a firearm through a dealer unless you lie on the form. Bad form because you've just committed a felony. And now you are a felon in possession of a firearm. That includes medicinal marijuana.

It's a Brave New World folks. Soma Holiday anyone?

God made marijuana.

No man should be thrown into a cage and have his freedom taken away for growing a plant or being in possession of a nontoxic flower.

That's the thing, marijuana grows naturally in the wild. I could never understand that this has gone on for so long without people pushing back on government. Frankly I'm tired of being told what I can and cannot have by a bunch of cucks in Washington

Off ATF E-Form 4473

"Section e.
Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?
Warning: The use or possession of marijuana remains unlawful under Federal law regardless of whether it has been legalized or decriminalized for medicinal or recreational purposes in the state where you reside."

And then there’s this other one:

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

If they’re not infringing me, then I’m not smoking pot.

4-20 will be a somber day around the cracker house as we remember those who were massacred by federal troops and company cops.
We are 100 miles from the Big Sandy Massacre and the Ludlow Massacre.
We are just as much in danger of another Ludlow Massacre in 1914 as we are today.
Let us hope history does no repeat itself.



The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard andColorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards on a tent colony of 1,200 strikingcoal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado, on April 20, 1914. About two dozen people, including miners' wives and children, were killed. The chief owner of the mine, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., was widely criticized for the incident.

The massacre, the culmination of an extensive strike against Colorado coal mines, resulted in the violent deaths of between 19 and 26 people; reported death tolls vary but include two women and eleven children, asphyxiated and burned to death under a single tent.
The deaths occurred after a daylong fight between militia and camp guards against striking workers. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the southern Colorado Coal Strike, which lasted from September 1913 through December 1914. The strike was organized by the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) against coal mining companies in Colorado. The three largest companies involved were theRockefeller family-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I), the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company (RMF), and the Victor-American Fuel Company (VAF).

In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg.The entire strike would cost between 69 and 199 lives. Thomas G. Andrews described it as the "deadliest strike in the history of the United States".

The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn described the Ludlow Massacre as "the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history".
Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident.
Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor lawsand an eight-hour work day.

The Ludlow site, 18 miles northwest ofTrinidad, Colorado, is now a ghost town. The massacre site is owned by the UMWA, which erected a granitemonument in memory of the miners and their families who died that day.
TheLudlow Tent Colony Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009, and dedicated on June 28, 2009.
Modernarcheological investigation largely supports the strikers' reports of the event.

Prolly more to do with Quetzalcoatl's "birth date" some where between April 6th and the 22nd?

http://www.ancient.eu/Quetzalcoatl/
Quetzalcóatl (pron. Quet-zal-co-at) was one of the most important gods in ancient Mesoamerica. The god known as the Plumed Serpent is a mix of bird and rattle snake and his name is a combination of the Nahuatl words for the quetzal - the emerald plumed bird - and coatl or serpent. He was also known as Kukulkán to the Maya, Gucumatz to the Quiché of Guatemala, and Ehecatl to the Huastecs of the Gulf Coast. He was regarded as the god of winds and rain and as the creator of the world and mankind. In Central Mexico from 1200 CE he was also considered the patron god of priests and merchants and considered the god of learning, science, agriculture, crafts and the arts. He also invented the calendar, was identified with Venus, the rising morning star, he was associated with opossums and even discovered corn (maize) with the help of giant red ant that led him to a mountain packed full of grain and seeds.

Quetzalcóatl was the son of the primordial androgynous god Ometeotl. In Aztec mythology he was the brother of Tezcatlipoca, Huizilopochtli and Xipe Totec. He is the 9th of the 13 Lords of the Day and is often associated with the rain god Tláloc. The god was particularly associated with the sacred site of Cholula, an important place of pilgrimage from 1200 CE and all round Aztec buildings were dedicated to the deity.

Oh come on guys... the Patty was just an impressionable girl, kind of rich but still, she had no moral bearing. But then who would when you don't have it....hence "Stockholm Syndrome."

The big argument was: She could have cut and run in the bank robbery-BUT she did not. And, then all her sudo-nice 2 know-ya friends got themselves burnt up while being shot at....yah, my first "live TV." Reality and focal submission got its start that day.

Far more people have died from eating cookie dough than over dosing on weed.

Make sure you don't burn the dough!

cookie dough notwithstanding...

Here's a little more on that study. From Wa-Po:

marijuana_study-08.png

excerpt:

This is one of the survey's most interesting findings: asked why they currently use marijuana, only 16 percent of smokers said it was “just to have fun.” The rest cited a variety of utilitarian reasons: 37 percent said they used marijuana to relax; 19 percent said they do it to relieve pain, 10 percent said it helps them be social.
If there's any group in society who do something “just to have fun,” you'd think it would be marijuana users. The stereotypical image of the “stoner” is the guy blazed out of his mind on his couch, eating Funyuns and giggling at his TV.
But most users don't see themselves this way. For them, marijuana is less about recreation and more of a product that fulfills a specific need in their life: relaxation, or pain relief, or social lubricant.​
