HONOLULU (AP) - A bill that would have legalized marijuana in Hawaii has died in the state House.

House judiciary committee Chairman Karl Rhoads said Tuesday that he decided to kill the bill after learning from House leadership that the initiative does not have enough votes to pass the House.

let's discuss the pros and cons of legalizing this blessed herb.

It must be the thrill of doing something "behind daddy's back". People do get addictions to their own hormones (adrenaline).

Out of the handful of times that I have smoked, only once did I get the rubber bones (my daughters description she had gotten from a contact high) effect. Now and again I think about partaking but don't know why..... I mostly want to munch.

We are also instructed to drink but not to have to much. People abuse their vices.... I do smoke cigarettes and I do think I abuse my use. I have bought tobacco seeds to grow my own but am hearing the government wants to put a halt to that. I do think home grown tobacco would be much better due to the fact it would not have all the chemicals added to it.

Some people that take legal meds their doctor gives them abuse or even become addicted. They get to the point to where they think they can not live without them. I personally know one that begs, borrows, and steals the legal meds he has become addicted to.

I stopped smoking pot over one year ago due to health problems which are hereditary and a result of heavy cigarette smoking but to which marijuana was exacerbating conditions. I smoked for 25 years and like the great Bill Hicks said:

“I use to take drugs, quit and have nothing against them. This is not a very popular idea, but it’s the truth, I have taken drugs before and, ah, I had a real good time. Sorry. Didn’t murder anybody, didn’t rob anybody, didn’t rape anybody, didn’t beat anybody, didn’t lose one f*cking job, laughed my ass off and went about my day. Sorry”.

No doubt members of this group are already aware of the info that follows but I thought it might be interesting to visitors.

There is absolutely no good reason for the prohibition of marijuana, apart from the fact that keeping it illegal secures unimaginably huge incomes for drug cartels and other organized crime identities. Statistically alcohol and tobacco, both legal drugs, contribute significantly to the leading causes of death within Western society, whereas it’s very difficult to find any noted deaths attributed to cannabis, and yet it remains a crime to posses it.

Again referencing Bill Hicks on “Just so no to drugs” commercials, he noted they are often followed by a commercial for Bud or some other alcoholic beverage company. “It’s ok to drink your drugs, we meant those other drugs, those un-taxed drugs”.

Both marijuana and hemp have been used for thousands of years. What is the difference? Smoking hemp will not get you high no matter how hard you try; it has next to no Tetra-hydro-cannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient that produces the pleasurable effects derived in smoking marijuana.

Prior to the Industrial Revolution, most rope, canvas and paper products were all made from hemp. For a short time, tree-pulp papermaking and synthetic fiber production became more cost-effective than using hemp.

However in the early 1930's, the hemp decorticator machine revolutionized the harvesting of hemp and promised to reduce the cost of producing hemp-pulp paper to less than half the cost of tree-pulp paper. Hemp, a renewable resource, requires minimal chemical treatment to process as apposed to the sulphuric acid wood-pulping process.

William Randolph Hearst, media mogul billionaire and huge timber acreage owner with massive paper-mill holdings, was not impressed. Hearst cleverly utilized his immense national network of newspapers and magazines to spread wildly inaccurate and sensational stories of the evils of cannabis. The infamous “reefer madness” campaigns from this era are now an amusing source of entertainment.

Hearst was not alone in his scheme to destroy hemp production. The new techniques also made hemp a viable option for fabric and plastics, two areas of manufacturing which together with paper seriously threatened DuPont chemicals, which at this time specialized in the chemical manufacturing of synthetic fiber and plastics, and the process of pulping paper.

In fact, Hearst and Lammont DuPont had a multi-million dollar deal in the works for joint paper making. So these two moguls, together with DuPont's banker, Andrew Mellon, bravely joined forces to stave off the bitter onrush of bankruptcy.

They combined Hearst's yellow journalism campaign (so called because the paper developed through his and DuPont's methods aged prematurely) and the appointment of Mellon's nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to Commissioner of the newly created Federal Bureau of Narcotics in order to successfully stamp out the threat of hemp production.

World War 11 brought a temporary reprieve in the anti marijuana propaganda in the US.

Hemp for Victory – A presentation by the US Dept of Agriculture, encouraged farmers to cultivate hemp for the war effort.

1942 – “Patriotic farmers at governments request planted 36,000 acres of seed hemp, an increase of several thousand percent. The goal for 1943 is 50,000 acres.”


This direction was short lived, post war America saw a return to demonizing hemp and smoking quality marijuana, as if they were both the same product. Harry Anslinger successfully lobbied President Eisenhower to pass the Narcotic Control Act of 1956, which put marijuana in the same category as heroine and made it subject to the same penalties.

In 1976 Jimmy Carter campaigned for the Presidency stating he favoured the decriminalisation of marijuana. AS President in 1977, he announced support for a change in law to end federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana. However, in what was surely coincidental, Carter’s chief drug policy adviser was caught snorting cocaine in what was named the “Quaalude Affair”. Carter could no longer appear to be soft on drugs and his proposal to decriminalise marijuana died in Congress.

I do agree it is God's gift for our health. It really pisses me off that we are being kept from the benefits because of greed.
Comment by Just Another Mama on July 2, 2009 at 12:39pm
Regardless of what my kids would tell anyone, I am not a stoner. Not saying I haven't ever smoked. I would have a hard time coming up with 10 occasions! Would I smoke if it were legal? Probably not. (Drinking is legal and I don't drink). I do believe that marijuana is beneficial to health. I do believe it has been banned by the government because there would not be much need for doctors or drug companies.
