Is because they're making a lot of money off of things stoners use to make themselves appear not high. Like eye drops, for example.
Now think of how many people wouldn't waste their money on eye drops if they didn't have to hide there bloodshot eyes?

True gesture. But the real reason it has not been legalized is because old fucking geasers in congress. The same geaser trying to have the legalization for marijuana petion not be seen and he even made a law that's illegal to talk about marijuana.! Look----->

So pretty much what their trying to do with this bill is make it harder for people to gain back our constitutional right to use marijuana by violating our right to freedom of speech. Fucking lovely!

so, the reason they arent legalizing a potential multi-billion dollar industry is because they are protecting a company that makes about 6 million a year?

Lol I was just about to say eye drops probably don't even make that much money and lots of people that smoke don't even use them. Plus, I don't think eye drop companies are the people that decide whether or not weed should be legal.

I follow the attire

Thats the reason I love this site, this useless piece of information has been inside my head for a while, and I had no where to spew it until just now.

I think everyone should read this acrticle in it mentions how many businesses would get hurt during the legalization of marijuana

stuff just doesnt make sense. we have to take into account other forms of money making from bud being illegal. private prisons like Corrections corporation of america, the GEO group and Community education centers all combined with hundreds of prisons all over the US add up to a few million people being detained. the owners of said prisons get money for every individual they have in there from whatever form of government is above them (local>county>state>federal) in the end the money comes out from the tax payers. also consider the market for drug testing which is HUUUUUGE much bigger than people consider. i think it eventually comes down to bud being the only product that realistically can be made at great quality and can move billions of dollars a year and, to some extent, cannot be taxed appropriately by the government (if, hypothetically, it were legalized its to assume wed be smart enough to know we can just grow it). Im currently unable to recall other information regarding the subject, maybe ill come back to it later.

or not considering the government spends way more money on the war on drug than eye drops. Maybe its because there is no way to immediately test if you high like there is when ur drunk.

 
 
Thu, 10/13/2011 - 3:14pm

So if weed was legalized, having dry, red, itchy eyes would be the cool thing to do?

I don't use eye drops. My eyes normally don't get red. The smoke usually blows the opposite direction of my eyes. Not sure how I pull that off, but that's the way it goes.

 
 
Thu, 10/13/2011 - 11:11pm

fuck, me too, il be high as fuck and ask my friend" are my eyes red?" he goes" r u even high?" but yeah, i guess we just got skill. haha

I can't go without eye drops. My eyes get redder than clifford the big red dog. Me and my friends will be high in public and they will constantly be telling me that my eyes are bloodshot. I guess we're just the opposite, bro.

Your eyes don't get red because of the smoke itself. Smoking green increases blood flow in your eyeballs so your blood vessels basically expand.. This is also why marijuana is the only discovered cure for some eye problems and diseases of the eyeballs...

oaktrees Says:

by the way, your eyes going red have absolutely nothing to do with the smoke. ever had edibles? no smoke, eyes still red as fuck. its the increase flow of blood to your head that subsequently pumps heavily into your eyes that makes them go red.

The REAL reason among many other "REAL" reasons is that it cures everything.

Not when you smoke it, but if you create oil with concentrated amounts of thc (and I'm talking 1 pound of bud made into 1 oz of oil) and ingest it, it cures literally everything a revitalizes all of your organs. This plant is even more amazing than most stoner's realize. Most people compare it to alcohol and thats a fucking joke.

THIS STUFF CURES EVERYTHING.

phoenixtears.ca <------------do some reading on this site.

Now why would you make something illegal that could cure everything...simple answer, MONEY.

Off cancer patients alone they make fucking billions of dollars, and that's just ct scans and other cancer related medications...

Now what about every other single illness and condition? Same deal.

Pharmacists and pharmaceutical companies wouldn't have jobs or make any money. You can't patent a plant.

The truth is that the people who run this world know very well what this plant is capable of, and they don't give a flying fuck if you die. This is the message everyone should be spreading if they want cannabis legalized, stop calling it by its street slang names and start calling it by what it is , Cannabis Sativa or indica. Most people won't even know what you're talking about when you say cannabis.

Anyways, rant done.

Peace bros and sisses

loving this! the reality is that to make a million dollar product, you need a million dollar problem. why the fuck would the pharmaceutical companies want something that can fix you without spending so much money on them? at the end of the day, the last thing they want is cancer cures, AIDS remedies, or anything of the sort that would inevitably put people out of a job. wake up guys, this is the market system we live in today.
