    There is a risk premium in this thing. You think people will be paying 20 bucks per g if there's no penalty to the cultivation of primo bud?

    It's a plant. A resilient one. They should sell smokers' licences. $100 a year, and you're good, just keep it out of school zones, and certain industries would still prohibit use for safety purposes. No stoner pilots plz.

    I guess that depends on if it's legalized at the state or federal level. If it's legalized at the state level I could see them giving licenses to growers/sellers, if it's legalized at the federal level I think it would be more likely made to be like alcohol which can only legally be sold in stores that have an ABC permit.

    Yes, I realise weed is expensive because of the risk factor, I just don't see it being cheaper because now it's legal and the government sells it. It's only illegal because of how much more money is made with it being that way, so no, I do not see it miraculously going down in price if it is made legal one day.

    The Government isn't going into the weed selling business.
    Yes it will be cheaper. This is how the market works.

    Got the Obama books on audible. This should be interesting.

    What do you guys think about Petraeus, though?

    He walked right into that MILF trap. Then he stood up and acted like a real man. He is still pretty cool in my book.

    I got caught in one too; no regrets LOL. He is, after all, a Bush man.

    The man's only human...

    Her biography of Petraeus: http://www.amazon.com/All-In-Educati...eywords=All+in

    I'll let the rest of you start making the jokes about the title.

    Part of her appearance to promote the book on The Daily Show:


    To be honest, my first reaction was, "He's resigning because he had an affair? Clinton didn't. Gingrich didn't." It's probably the right thing for him, personally, to do.

    What's funnier is this all broke this week -- since Tuesday. According to one news report I saw, her husband was in the middle of planning an expensive birthday party for her in DC on Saturday night and only disinvited the guests on Friday!

    It was, IMO, appropriate for him to resign. It's a liability at that level.

    It also showed a startling lack of discipline, from such a man. His not leaving would have made a joke out of agency rules for those down the chain.

    That was actually the basis for the FBI investigation. The supposed extortion coming into play at that level could compromise national security.

    The infidelity notwithstanding (human-factor and all), leaders must lead by example. There is no room for exception to policy or executive privilege at this level. This man was selected and vetted because of his exemplary background.

    According to the investigation, this affair was going on before he left the military. There is no way that the background check and confirmation hearings could have missed it. Things that make you go hmmmm.

    IMO The only reason a falandering politician should have to resign is if they built a platform on moral values

    Otherwise it is thier private buisness

    I don't know if I'd vote for them though
