PostSubject: Colorados legal " mean green"   August 18th 2017, 12:24 am

I am sick and tired of this crap already! All this legalized weed has brought into our small town are filthy bums that are hoarding the street corners and now, riding around in the back of their pickups, holding a sign asking for a hand out! You sob, if you can burn up all the expensive fuel, you dont need my money or help of any kind!

Sick and tired of seeing boo hoo, im hungry. and then seeing the sorry piece of trash get into a brand new car or like these 6 bums, a 4 door late 2000's model ford truck that most likely cost 50 grand in the day!

The money can not be used in the schools as its illegal! They found this out the hard way. Where is it going? Into the scum bag politicians pocket of course! Driving through pueblo today, the roads are pot holes. Wheres all that road improvement they preached about?

All I see are out of state druggies flooding the stores and taking off across the state line, headed back to texas.

No education improvements, teachers laid off, no road improvements, it's illegal money and can not be put into a federal bank... Yeah, give the scum bags what they want, keep education low, keep the druggies happy, you just bought yourself a vote and lined your pocket with illegal drug money!

Sorry guys, Im just pissed off after seeing all the scum out on the streets today.

The money from the weed cannot be spent as the feds still have it as illegal to do so. Its actually just piling up until the courts sort it out. Panhandlers have always been a sore spot with me and I have not ever once given them a dime. Get ur ass to work there is jobs out there but there just to damn lazy to get one. Seen one up here a while back guy had his wife 3 kids and 3 dogs on the corner lookin for cash. There was people handin him money. I think they all must have been high.

Cannabis will remain a problem with the Feds until DEA removes it as a Schedule 1 drug.

My blood boils too when I see what appears to be individuals (male and female) fully capable of work, yet choose to hold a sign on the corner asking for hand-outs.  Pure laziness.

When I was very young I recall sitting on my front porch with my father.  A hobo came up to us and asked for a hand-out.  My father, who worked 8-12 hours day, told Evil or Very Mad him to take a hike and don't look back.  That was my first lesson in the work ethic.

I go to thrift stores to buy paperback books to read. I passed one yesterday and was going to pull in to check out their books when I saw the parking lot packed with nice cars. BMWs, dually pickups, and lots of Japanese cars. All of them were fairly new and in much better shape than my 2006 truck.
It turned out that it was Free Food Day for "poor" people who couldn't afford to buy groceries. I guess it's hard to buy groceries when you're making $400/month car payments.  Mad

It really pissed me off .. nothing but freeloaders working the system. I'l bet half of those "poor souls" are collecting welfare checks too.


I was caught in traffic in Tampa a few years ago when a bum with a cardboard sign walked between the stopped cars. The sign said, "I Need a Beer Bad!".  A guy in front of me handed him 4 beers. I laughed because at least the guy was honest and didn't say "I'm Hungry" or "Will Work For Food."

Watched Live, P.D. last night. It is the show where a camera crew follows around an LEO from 6 different departments around the country and transmit in real time.
What I find amazing is how much time and energy police spend on marijuana stops. Yes, meth and heroin turn up now and again, but they must spend 70% of their time on violations leading to marijuana busts.
Stops for having a tail light out or not using a turn signal or weaving in a lane are often ruses for checking for alcohol use or marijuana. Marijuana turns up much more often than alcohol. Even in marijuana legal states like Colorado, the police spend an inordinate amount of time doing suspected marijuana car stops.
Should police spend their (and our) limited resources on marijuana busts? I ask this as a real question as I am conflicted on the topic. Should they just offer a citation if a traffic stop happens to turn up some grass? Should they continue to or stop focusing on marijuana stops?

RonC is right on.   The police spend an insane amount of time on pot busts.   The state of Oklahoma still sends folks to prison for possession of rather small quantities of pot.   The state of Oklahoma  sued Colorado because droves of Okies are buying pot in CO and bringing it back home. 

After fighting the "war on drugs" for over 40 years there is more dope on US streets than ever before.   Much of that dope  is  laced with a potent painkiller,  fentanyl.   It is killing dope users by the thousands.

DUI citations mean big money for cities and counties. Usually over $1000 by the time everything is sorted out. It also leads to suspended driver's licenses which theoretically keeps dangerous drivers from killing the average citizen. 

People who are not involved with any criminal offense are often victims of these drivers. There is a lot of pressure placed on LE departments by MADD and other influential citizens to keep these drivers off the streets.
So, it gathers in a lot of money for the city/county/state and it makes the voting public happy. Hard to argue with why they spend so much time on it.

Here's another story.   Probably 15 years or so I chaperoned some teenagers to an outdoor concert.  A very few police officers were strategically stationed here and there.  Also scattered about were the palm weed smokers who tried their best to hide their aroma.  Curious I asked the police officer about the guys 20 feet from him toking away.  His response was  "We're not here for that."

Hard hearted, but the best plan is to let them have their drugs and either die of the fentanyl or starve.  I have no sympathy for them.  They are getting exaclty what they asked for.

A very close relative (and former household member) is a police officer. He confirms Sharpsman statment: "Oft times minor traffic stops....turn into MAJOR traffic stops!!" When asked if pulling over a suspicious vehicle (some call it "profiling") for a minor infraction results in discovering a more major infraction, he says "Absolutely, almost 100%." It is 100% that there is no insurance, 85% that the driver has no valid license or no license at all, and maybe 70% someone in the car has an outstanding warrant. This does not hold for pulling over an elderly woman in a Subaru SUV or a family in an Explorer. It does happen for a Honda or Camaro with blacked out windows.
However, many of the stops I see on the Live P.D. program target marijuana violations. In fact, I sometimes get bored seeing marijuana busts after marijuana busts. Once in a while, there might be a marijuana stop that turns up more devastating drugs, like meth, but that might happen one time in the 3 hour show. The weed stops do turn up several people with warrants. It is just amazing, though, how much of the police resources are spent on marijuana, particularly in those states who just issue a citation ticket for the marijuana use. 
Our relative prefers to respond to domestic violence, weapons and warrant calls. 
Ron

"Our relative prefers to respond to domestic violence, weapons and warrant calls."


A lifetime ago, I was a special deputy with the county sheriff's dept. I rode weekends with a 6'3" 300 lb deputy who looked like a Mafia enforcer complete with knife scar across his face. At that time the most dangerous calls for the officers were domestic disturbances and bar fights.
I would much rather face a guy with a gun in a bar than put up with the drunk domestic couple shouting, spitting, and crying and making no sense at all.

We would arrest the man if he battered the woman and 95% of the time she would bail him out the next day and refuse to press charges.

Its sad but true all of this is a money game. The weed and the booze both. Do you think a guy thats been to jail 5 times for DUI or drugs gives a rip about whether he has insurance or a license or not. He gets 3 meals a day TV and a place to sleep for free. It was 95 here yesterday and we went by the local Safeway on the way home. There by the main entrance was a small woman with 2 kids a cooler and a sign. My wife commented about how sad that was for the 2 kids. The heat and what that woman is teaching them. Al

Ok I know a Guy looking to go to prison because his Girlfriend planted Meth on him then called the Cops.

She was given a Ticket for Drug Paraphilia, Misdemeanor, $400 fine. She didn't pay and left state. Made it a Felony, $800 Fine, plus $450 for Jail cost. Judge told her pay the $800 in 30 days or go to prison for 2 years.

I think the Guy is going to keep her out of prison and go because he won't be able to pay his Lawyer.

Be interesting if both go to Prison.

The Girl is not allowed in my House because she told her Mom where I keep my Pain Medication and when I would be gone. The Woman got in my House and stole my Medication and sold it. Now Cameras up and everything is locked up.

I can honestly say I have never smoked anything. When in the 7th grade, everyone was lighting up cigarettes. In order to "fit in" I had to light a few cigarettes but like my hero, Bill Clinton Rolling Eyes, I never inhaled.

When my first kid was born, I bought a box of very good cigars. After handing most of them out, I lit one. I put it out immediately and washed out my mouth with everything from mouthwash to whiskey. 4 days later I still had that awful taste in my mouth.  :barf

As adventurous kids I recall my friends and I sneaking into " tobacco sheds " where the harvested leaves were drying.  We would sit among the hanging leaves until we forgot what time it was.  

Then one Light Bulb day we braved What a Face to roll a cegar ourselves with the green leaves and smoke like real men do.  :barf confused :barf confused  :barf .

Whatever trips your trigger Marty. Smile

I started smoking Lucky's at 16 (carried in your "T" shirt sleeve and a "DA" we were bad) and drinking Bud at 18. Then after 20 years I got a brain storm and stopped everything so I could buy a new 1969 Dodge Six-Pack Dodge Super Bee. Never started smoking or drinking again, all my friends were waiting for me to go back to old the old ways .... never happened.  Razz  Laughing
