"Tide has shifted..." Actually you wish. Thinking adults have not "shifted," only mindless mouths.

Its time to end prohibition. Last time I checked, Colorado has not become a "zombie state". Just because it is "legal" it does not mean alot of us will smoke the "ganja", any more than we will smoke cigarettes.

The St. Valentine's Day massacre in 1929 shocked the public and sparked repeal of the 18th amendment. People saw how the prohibition of alcohol was breeding crime and bloodshed. In a Chicago warehouse that morning, seven men were gunned down execution style. Last year, 15,273 people were gunned down because of a different prohibition, many of them execution style. This continuing bloodshed fails to shock the American public, presumably because those dying are mainly Mexican. Meanwhile, the U.S. government continues to spend billions -- at the border, on the streets, in the courthouses and prisons -- fighting a war that's caused more harm than good.

In ObamaWorld it's better to be inebriated than to face reality.

Alcohol is a far more dangerous drug than marijuana. I have never heard of anyone getting high on weed and then beating up their wife or girlfriend. It happens all the time with booze. Alcohol makes people stupid and sometimes mean. Not so with pot.

Minnesota will never be up to speed on this issue. They can't even open liquor stores on Sunday.

It is embarrassing that our state is not a leader in the charge to legalize.

Stop the carnage now!
