Next TAM in Colorado or Washington?

Given that weed is now legal there...

I mean, I'm sure these states have something sciency that can be used for official justification. At least they can't be worse than Nevada in that respect.

The DEA is not busting individuals for small amounts of pot, and apparently they don't plan to anytime soon. We already have medical pot dispensaries and no one is bothering them.

Oh, this is a satire thread not only for the title, but the OP.

Moving on...

Dang, spoke too soon. The Feds raided some of the dispensaries in the state this morning.

TAM is only for people who appreciate good wholesome and domestic things, like beer.
Cannabis is of course exotic, smells exotic, looks exotic, and tingles all the right xenophobia chords to give a man or woman hours of tribe mongering fun. One makes you dumb, the other makes you a witty literary critic or writer of truths. Which one? I think it's clear it's not the weird exotic stuff that makes you interesting and uninhibited. It smells so pungent and exotic!
