    It's a character flaw, but I try my best to keep it to myself when riding lifts with strangers and their impressionable spawn.

    I've lived my 50+ years with MJ being against the law. It has never been an issue for me, professionally or legally. I've never had to surrender my fingerprints to anyone. It can stay illegal, fine with me. But as the current administration takes away the rights of my gender and many others in this nation, as well as dismantling regulations that kept our air, water and earth safe - suddenly progress I've seen made during those 50 years go "poof". Don't expect anything done by states to remain legal - there is no longer forward progress as a society - eventually the backward ass ignorants of this country will be sure you stay inside wth your joint or they'll cart you off to a jail cell. No way I'd invest a penny in the industry or even step foot in a "legal" shop. When Sessions decides all pot smokers are drug addicts and treated as such - they'll go back to whatever proof (or computer data) the "legal" states have and get you. Mark my words...this administration is that evil.

    Keep your shit outside where no one can smell or inside. You just never know.....



    Sure - I have a foil hat - but what I've seen the last year makes me realize that the McCarthy era-like zealots are purely capable of anything.

    I kinda like how the legal guys still cant use banks due to the federal illegality of it. Which means I buy it cash, no tracing there.

    Do they smoke pot in the Handmaid's Tale?

    Seriously. Alpinezone is one of the few places left on this planet where people can have a conversation without political screeds being thrown into the mix. Or at least it used to be.

    For the benefit of everyone's amusement, could you please list all the "rights" you've lost in the last 18 months?

    ROFL.

    Yeah, my life seems pretty nice, I wasn't aware of the dystopian nightmare I'm living in! I better dust off my crossbow when I get home given SkiFanE just informed us that the Hunger Games have already started.

    I'll have to try that next season. But in all fairness, you are a 6 foot (?) male? (vs a 5'4" middle aged female) Don't think you would get much flack.

    Great point. I was fortunate to have confused Facebook so it would mix left and right wing echo chambers on my newsfeed. The news media totally underestimates the differences between the two. On Facebook itís literally 2 different worlds, with different facts, different focuses. Even the representatives of opposing organizations donít match up in different echo chambers.

    My wife, who also fits that 5'4" middle aged demographic to a T , but who actually has asthma, has used that approach a few times with 100% success as well.

    Pretty sure that the vast majority of the population does associate the word "asthma" with breathing problems, and actually does comprehend that smoke, of any kind, in a small space, and asthma don't mix well!!

    Much better than sounding all "parental" with a "do you mind?" Or "are you really going to smoke now?" which oftens begs for a non compliant reaction from many!! Gotta thank the great writings of adloescent psychologist, Dan Seigal, Ph.D, for that basic, but often very effective concept of using a third diversion with facts over a straight confrontation approach with my formulation on this!
