Oregon to put "POT bill"on 2010 ballot-Initiative would allow pot sales at liquor stores
SALEM, Ore. - Relax it and tax it.

That's the motto behind a new cannabis initiative that would allow Oregon's state-controlled liquor stores to legally sell marijuana to adults.

Initiative backers said their plan would send 90 percent of the proceeds from the state's sale of marijuana to Oregon's General Fund, which could lower Oregonians' state tax burden.

Smaller percentages would go to funding drug abuse education and treatment programs.

The initiative would also legalize the growing of hemp, a non-drug variant of cannabis that can be used to make industrial-strength fibers and bio-fuels.

Supporters claim that allowing cannabis cultivation and sales through state liquor stores would add $300 million in combined tax revenues and savings to Oregon's budget.

Never going to happen, the federal government will not allow it. Not at this time anyways.

So quit packing up your bongs, bowls and papers for a planned move to Oregon, it is not going to happen.

Let me put it to you Mr. Texan so you can understand a little easier. I would speak slow, but since I am not verbally communicating, this will have to suffice. Portland, Oregon has a lot of conservatives like yourself. It is a greener version of Austin; which you should (if you have a brain) be familiar with as pretty liberal. Though no one place is 100% liberal in this world. I am glad that you didn't lump gays into the weirdo category, that means subconsciously you have a hard time internalizing the issue. Perhaps, when you used to play high school football...you might have spent too much time inappropriately staring at fellow team mates in the locker rooms.
As for the weirdo bit, yes there are plenty of us who are not conforming to the concepts that you hold onto like a security blanket. Fearing that you MIGHT actually enjoy being different, must really terrify you. I am one of the weirdos, if you are afraid of us, then please stay in your uptight and I assure you really, really, really boring environment. The environment where you know exactly what is going to happen and everyone does everything the same way. (To me that is like a bad horror/sci-fi film). On the plus side, I know I will not have to worry about you invading our state with a bunch of inane babbling and rhetoric.
-Sincerely,
A Portland Weirdo.

Yep, Portland is pretty awesome, I just don't feel comfortable in big cities. I grew up in a small town so Portland is HUGE by my standards. People who don't like nonconformists shouldn't move here, we neither need nor want any more uptight haters here.

if this bill passes...oregon will become the richest state in the nation.....

overnight....guaranteed!
Beyond one's own mind there is no dazzling light to come shining in from outside to wake one up. If one recognizes one's own intrinsic State as pure from the beginning and only temporarily obscured by impurities, and if one maintains the presence of this recognition without becoming distracted, then all the impurities dissolve. This is the essence of the Path-namkhai norbu.

Why is there a legend about the descent of Christ into hell? The Teacher addressed the lower strata of the astral world, saying: �Why, by cherishing earthly thoughts, bind oneself eternally to Earth?� And many revolted in spirit and rose higher.
