    Yes, they want to let you smoke weed, but put you away for an empty casing.

    Sounds legit.

    It honestly makes more sense than the other way around.

    so the heart of the federal goverment wants to ignore both the federal ban on pot and the constitutional right to bear arms?

    I already think DC is stoned.

    Supporters of the change point in part to a recent American Civil Liberties Union finding that blacks were eight times more likely than whites to be arrested in the District in 2010.
    "I think it's very detrimental to the psychological development and social development of young people that are using marijuana, and especially our young black men," he said.
    That sounds exactly like the arguments William Randolph Hearst used to push for the ban on anything related to hemp when he found out he stood to lose millions because it would be cheaper to manufacture paper from hemp plants instead from wood.

    Perhaps a Federal Mandate requiring ALL politicians to smoke pot or pay a penalty, I mean tax, would actually HELP our political mess and govt insanity.

    The logic is basically this: An empty cartridge case implies you've got a gun or have shot one, hence you're a threat. That makes about as little sense as claiming that having a beer bottle cap implies that you're drunk and therefore a threat.

    every time DC is mentioned it takes me a second to figure out if we are talking about the capital city or our forum.

    it sort of is that way, a beer "casing" (can or bottle) in your car could land you with an open container charge.

    Right, as though an "empty" implies drunkenness implies threat.

    Why is anyone surprised? This is a typical liberal thought process. I fear it will only get worse.

    I'm not saying we should kill all the stupid people. I'm saying remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

    It was those "typical liberals" that kicked Giron out of office. Most of the liberals I know are anti-drug and pro-grun.
