    I've changed my mind on something...

    I was watching a Discovery channel show about Jamaica, and it got me to thinking about a topic I've discussed before.

    The logic that changed my mind isn't anything I haven't heard before. I guess I just needed to come to the conclusion on my own.

    I think that pot should be made legal. My logic stands on these simple points.

    1. It is legal to smoke.
    2. It is legal to shit-faced drunk.
    3. Why shouldn't it be legal to smoke to the point that equates to being mildly inebriated?

    On these simple ground, I believe that smoking pot should be made legal.

    Don't get me wrong, I still believe that if you smoke (tobacco or pot) or drink, you're doing something stupid. However, I think I'm more than okay with the idea of pot brownies.

    That is all.

    I head on NPR that California thinks pot could save their economy. They are hurting pretty bad right now, and it would be stupid to not do it.

    It's not a documentary. It's actually a show about travelling. The host mentioned that the two biggest sources of income for the Jamaicans are tourism and pot, but that he couldn't talk about pot because he isn't allowed to talk about it because of the network rules. That got me to thinking about the issue of pot and it's legality.

    The show is Called No Reservations. You can watch the Jamaica episode on YouTube.

    Here's part one.

    I came to the realization it should be legal the first time I smoked it.....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    I said that I changed my mind, not that I went insane.

    It doesn't look like anyone is enforcing it.

    After I read your post, I searched the Internet on the topic. Most of what I read said that they cops won't bother you if you stay on your resort. And it also said that, so long as you don't flaunt it, the cops leave you alone.

    Things may have changed since you were there, or, being that this is the Interweb, what I read may be wrong.

    I agree with that, but they do "beach raids" every week, the drug dealers hang out right at the shorelines of resorts, the resorts cannot do anything because they don't own the beach, so the cops come around carrying rifles, guns, etc. and all of the dealers throw their stash and swim out in to the ocean, its pretty funny.
