    Is it true that pot is more potent these days than it used to be?

    much more potent now,. in the '70s what was available was usually a mixture of leaf, maybe some fertilized bud, and a lot of stems and seeds,.. nobody touches that stuff anymore,.. in today's world, what people buy is all sinsemilla buds, frustrated female flowers, by far the most potent part of a marijuana plant. Hybridizing has also upped the THC levels considerably.

    Yes - You are a hypocrite. Congrats on spelling it correctly. You must have had a lucid moment in between your flashbacks. I don't want to go so far as to favor the legalization of all drugs but if it could be done properly it would take the profit out of the hand of the drug cartels. Do you think Pablo Escobar would have become the 4th richest man in the world if cocaine had been legal.

    It is already easy to get for anybody of any age. And has been for a long time. There were kids in my neighborhood in the 70's smoking pot. I wasted a lot of years by waiting until I was 18.

    Well it doesn’t sound too smart to be legalizing something that is more potent now

    legalized for adults, nonaddictive, safer than alcohol.. federal acceptance opens the door for expanded medical research. Removes the criminal cartels from the picture. In Oregon, legally produced marijuana is analytically guaranteed to be free of pesticides and other chemicals,.. you don't know what poisons you're ingesting from the black market. Are there downsides?.. yes, but like I said,.. safer than alcohol.

    Both are not good. Not recommending prohibition we just shouldn't legalize another substance that can destroy your life and the people around you. Seen too much of it in my advanced age. Try 16th street in Denver these days and see the vulgar rot legalization has wrought to that city, its sad.

    Why not criminalize alcohol too. It worked out so well in the Roaring Twenties.
