In response to John Mkay and parts of this article that try to make the assumption that I-502 will in anyway help end the black market or Mexican cartels:

If it's "legal" to possess an ounce of cannabis, yet there will be absolutely no legal markets (due to federal preemption), and with growing even a single plant being still illegal, where do you think the average recreational cannabis consumer is going to purchase their ounce? The black market of course.

pfffter you're losing your cool, and not making your side look good.

We're not the only ones fighting against per se limits. To argue that the per se limit is worth the 1 ounce decrim is one argument, but to argue that per se DUIC policies aren't completely unscientific and unethical.....that just doesn't make any sense and makes you seem like you're grasping.

here's NORML fighting hard to stop the same EXACT 5 ng/ml limit for cannabis in Colorado: http://www.capwiz.com/norml2/issues/aler…

#146: Unfortunately that's not what this is about with I-502. Take a look at the federal CSA and take a look at 502 and you'll see that it will NOT stand a challenge in court. However, if like Missouri (Show-Me Cannabis Regulations) and California's End Cannabis Prohibition Act of 2012 they would of kept the EXACT same initiative but removed it from the state's controlled substances list - THAT would of stood up to a federal challenge because the feds can't reinstate state criminal sanctions...this would of brought real, lasting reform (and they still could of had the distribution system in the initiative, etc.).

Also: not true undead. Under the cutoff your defense doesn't change. Above the cutoff...you lose your right to a fair trial.

And sorry undead, I just can't not work to make sure this never becomes law (for the same reason so many people have fought again per se laws for decades), because changing it after it passes is practically an impossibility.

Kevin…you know that this isn't about driving impaired, it's about unconstitutional (where’s our fair trial?) and unethical laws being unacceptable (and you KNOW they're unethical as NORML has been saying so for YEARS).

Also, it’s quite a shame to hear your opinion has changed so much since you met with us at Sensible Washington’s Steering Committee meeting a couple weeks ago when your tone about this whole situation was quite different...

#101: undead, I think that's one of the bigger disagreements that separates a lot of our opinions. If it was easily altered, this may be a different issue, but in reality, 1) our legislature legally can't alter it for two years, 2) DUI and DUID penalties are never reduced, and 3) a recent attempt to protect JUST patients from the per se limit (just like even Arizona has for their per se law!!) didn't even make it out of committee.
