Marijuana

Post by Glen Ring » Tue May 25, 2021 5:03 pm

Our state, and I guess other states, have opened up the Marijuana growing and distribution sites.
I live in a VERY rural area and there are several marijuana farms and distributors near us.

We were in a small town today and a lady was using her "prescription" on the side walk in front of a store. All legal here now.

We have decided, as match directors, to treat the users the same as we treat someone who has had a beer, or taken a prescribed drug such as dilauded or percodan, to name a couple .

If we are aware the shooter is under the influence of any of the above ( and others of course) they cannot shoot at our match.

Have any of you match directors had to deal with something like this?

So Bruce, your saying the cure is a "dirt knapp" ? Certainly effective and permanent, that's for sure! If drunks were handled the same way the earth would be pretty much depopulated me thinks !

I trained with some Saudis and Malaysians When I was in Virginia one summer. Their penalties were severe for possession of drugs.

In Oklahoma City we had a Police officer train with us that was from a small country that hung drug traffickers. I asked him how long the appeals process took and he stated "FOREVER'...it was actually 5 or 6 months!

The only issues we have had to deal with , so far, have been folks drinking alcohol. One sip of a beer or anything else containing alcohol and the match is over for them.

an aust drug trafficer was arrested and eventually put down in indonesia.
he knew the deal before he started, yet still went ahead.
the disappointing aspect of the whole thing, other than his attempted dealing, was the fact that he and a whole lot of oz do gooders campaigned for his release on the grounds of his potential to do good.
how many lives do these dealers take. even addicts still alive are in reality the walking dead.
and the trauma to friends and family, and the loss of potential.
the fact of these do gooders just goes to show where the world is really going.

Thinking you can make war on a weed is the height of statist thinking.

What do you do with people that are not on drugs, but act like it?

This State makes me sick! Now there trying to do like Oregon and make all drugs legal. I live by a small community that's not even a town and they have 2 weed stores. Restaurants were closed for covid but pot stores could stay open. Sad world!

I'm pretty anti-drug but after watching this all my life they just as well make it all legal let it go through legitimate channels pretty sure those southern countries would prosper a lot better and we wouldn't have them all coming here

I would like to see the impact that legal marijuana growing has on some of the organized groups south of the border. We worked a group that boated in large amounts and drove them across country and into Canada through an Indian reservation. I guess now folks can buy weed legally in Washington and in Oregon and get high back in Canada. I have always been anti-drug and have NEVER used any illegal drug, but I'm wondering about how this state will gain from all the taxation...or will this be like the great Emu and Ostrich scam of the 80's.

I predict legal prostitution will be in the near future...it's a home grown "crop" that almost everyone enjoys.

It would be an absolute shame if people were allowed to freely decide how to treat their own bodies.

It’s been legal in certain counties in Nev. for years. I lived there many years. Been there, done that going to those places! There run like a bar, only you can have all the fun you want with the girls...They run adds in the Cal. And Nev. newspapers for girls over 18 to work at the ranches. Most of them are young beautiful girls! They live at the ranch 3 weeks out of the month and stay with their sponsor for one week. Tested every day, they’re fully taken care of and protected. I know a few girls that worked at the Moonlite Ranch for 2 years out of high school, one made enough money to pay for her home and a new car, and the other paid for her college education. And the third is a friends wife! She makes a LOT of money! They live very well. It’s not all bad!!
