    so sad when things like meth and heroine are being peddled to our children in pill form. Adderal = Amphetamine, oxycotin/oxycodone/hydrocodone = heroin(opiate) derivatives. THESE ARE THE GATEWAY DRUGS. marijuana became a gateway when it was put into the black market . does this sadness not remind you of the 1930s when we single handedly created organized crime with prohibition (cartels?)? We should be getting rid of the real problems IMO (the hard drugs destroying people and families and these ideas the popular media/music is propelling into children that being a complete fool and selling drugs is what looks cool)

    What a waste of taxpayer money and law enforcement resources.
    In two weeks it’s legal in CO.

    Since illegal in IA and since Terry Braindead’s head is shaking so bad via Parkinson’s disease a trip to CO would do him, and his attitude, a world of good.

    otherwise I guess he could save a trip and ask Mid-Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force for a little bud…if they haven’t toked it all up already???

  • No More Tea Bags

    The Iowa Pharmaceutical Board UNANIMOUSLY voted to decriminalize marijuana and approve it for medicinal use. For the first time in the Boards history, our illustrious Gov Brainsdead vetoed a UNANIMOUS recommendation by said Board.
    When are the people going to rise up and get rid of these corporate clowns???

    Wow….Just watched 60 minutes re legal mj in CO.
    No doubt this is big business and will leave alcohol sales in envy.
    They have a 16 oz beverage they claim will leave you mellowed-out for an afternoon.
    Those that can’t handle their booze (AA) will no longer worry about; health issues, vehic homicide via OWI, starting fights they cannot finish, beating wives and wondering “why did I do that” the next morning, sleeping with “who knows what due to poor judgment and catching who knows what in return.”
    Congrats CO!
    This is long past due…
