And if he did. Did he eventually divest.

Clyde, If the AG divested and has not disclosed then he is deliberately giving the appearance of self serving, otherwise he is self serving.
This is real binary. For the short period of time when I worked for the Federal government the code of conduct was quite clear on the appearance thing.

Unfortunately... The true foundations of these attacks. Attempting to either have Trump quit, or Impeach and Convict. Will fail.

He will continue, albeit at a slower pace than he thought was possible. To get most of his Programs, and Executive orders in place.

As I have said many, many, many times. Negativity against Trump has never, and probably never will succeed. Unless the 'Never Trumps', Democrats, et al. Actually address the Real Concerns of the American people.

IE: The Economy and Good Jobs (not minimum wage).

Clyde, so you agree that the AG is not in compliance with the code of conduct?

Going to be interesting to see if that Schedule D form 1040 is going to be used at his trial. Of course the same applies to tRump who desperately doesn't want his conflicts of interest investigated. Wonder there if he advised someone and did business with who he told them to use and didn't disclose it. Might be interesting to look at all those conflict check boxes on those corporate returns! Perhaps that is what the IRS is auditing?

Personally I reckon that it should've been legal for a very long time now.

Then there would've been a lot less need for those jails, there would've been a hell of a lot less violence, there would've been a lot less theft/robbery and a lot less pressure on emergency health services due to there would've been a lot less need for those cheaper hard drugs which wouldn't have gotten the foothold that they have now.

Cheers.


Yep, they've spent all this time worrying about a little green weed that makes people a little giggly or hungry, and now cheap heroin runs through our streets like water through a river.

My wifey and I now can't even count on all of our fingers the people in our lives that have either become addicted to heroin or have died from overdose. The problem is beyond an epidemic from what I can tell.

And alcohol flows like a river, too. It's really crazy to me. With a more conservative court, I don't know if there's any hope of seeing marijuana federally legalized anyway soon.

And add in the cheap Gamma-hydroxybutyric acid and Methamphetamine based drugs doing the rounds these days magnifying the problem.

Cheers.

If legislation is passed the courts have no say in the matter. Many of the states have spoken and will put pressure on on their federal legislators.
The day's of prohibition may very well be numbered.

I thought that the new favorable state decisions could still technically be usurped by current federal regulations against marijuana.

That is true but that would require mucho cajones.
As I suggested the federal legislators will have much political pressure put upon them.

Or one little states rights case where the conservatives want state control of a federal program and the entire prohibition scheme comes crashing down.

Possibly.

Doesn't matter in The Grand Scheme of Power. The Democrat Party, over the past years (even before Trump). Has suffered massive political loses in State and Federal Elections. And worse for them. Refuse to admit the American people have dismissed them.

All they and the media do. Is yell and scream Conspiracy! And that is the Real Difficulty to get anyone, outside of their deranged accusations. To take seriously a real issue.

Since it appears that the American People have no faith in the accuracy The Media. And the Foundation of all this yelling, screaming and accusations (a few true). Is an attempt to overturn a Legitimate Election. It will fail.

Thereby, eventually enabling Trump to proceed with what he campaigned upon.

And the one issue which caused me to vote against him.

My wifey and I now can't even count on all of our fingers the people in our lives that have either become addicted to heroin or have died from overdose. The problem is beyond an epidemic from what I can tell.


I read this yesterday and all I could think was: fentanyl. Because it is being added to other narcotics especially heroin it is causing street heroin to become overdose-prone. I didn't have any recent corroboration but then just today in one of our local newspapers: 'Safe' injection site tests show approximately 80% of drugs contain deadly fentanyl

Fentanyl is safe enough to be used medically when diluted properly by someone trained, but it is so strong it is too easy to get the mixture wrong and it becomes deadly.

Yet another thing that would not happen if this ridiculous "War on Drugs" was ended and addicts could purchase narcotics with proper quality controls prepared by certified people.

And there's variants of fentanyl out there too. stuff that's 10x or more stronger than typical pharm. grade fentanyl, stuff that's meant for animals and goes for such cheap prices people can buy pounds of it from overseas mfrs and increase their profits exponentially.
But yes, it seems the fentanyl is what is directly responsible for the epidemic of 'heroin' deaths.

In the last 6 months alone, two of my co-workers have passed away due to overdose from heroin (or whatever was mixed with it)

meanwhile, the feds want to keep locking up people for smoking pot?

Clyde, you continue to refuse to answer a simple yes or no question. I didn't ask whether it mattered or not. Instead you choose to deflect. Your critical thinking is lacking. You really should try to improve. How sad, very very sad.

Hi betreger...

Understanding your Non-Critical, Non-Nuanced Thinking, and Posts.

I do enjoy the attacks.

Confirms, as always, what I have been saying.

BTW: Keep up the Clyde. It is, to anyone maturing beyond a 10 year old in a school yard... Childish. Also confirming...

BTW 2: Haven't yet made up my mind if I should mirror the childish Clyde. Or just sign CLYDE. Until it do...

Have a wonderful day.

CLYDE - Clyde :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Annotation: I do like the appearance of Clyde :) :) :) :) :) :) :) Therefore...

Have a wonderful day

Clyde :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Clyde your unwillingness to answer a simple yes or no question reveals once again what you are. This is not an attack, you self destruct on your own.
