You are being fed a line of crap.

Suit yourself Bobby J; however, you should try sobriety just for a couple of months. You can always go back to smoking pot after that. Then talk to me after your brain has cleared.

I bet you can't do it, can you? Just a couple of months.

you'll not know until you try

Hey Dennis I guess God really messed up when he put these receptors into the brains of many humans. You must be smarter than Him.

The cannabinoid receptors are a class of cell membrane receptors under the G protein-coupled receptor superfamily.[1][2][3] As is typical of G protein-coupled receptors, the cannabinoid receptors contain seven transmembrane spanning domains.[4] Cannabinoid receptors are activated by three major group of ligands, endocannabinoids (produced by the mammalian body), plant cannabinoids (such as THC, produced by the cannabis plant) and synthetic cannabinoids (such as HU-210). All of the endocannabinoids and plant cannabinoids are lipophilic, i.e. fat soluble, compounds.

There are currently two known subtypes, termed CB1 and CB2.[5][6] The CB1 receptor is expressed mainly in the brain (central nervous system, CNS), but also in the lungs, liver and kidneys. The CB2 receptor is mainly expressed in the immune system and in hematopoietic cells.[7] Mounting evidence suggests that there are novel cannabinoid receptors[8] that is, non-CB1 and non-CB2, which are expressed in endothelial cells and in the CNS. In 2007, the binding of several cannabinoids to a G protein-coupled receptor (GPCR) in the brain was described.[9]

The protein sequences of CB1 and CB2 receptors are about 44% similar.[10] When only the transmembrane regions of the receptors are considered, amino acid similarity between the two receptor subtypes is approximately 68%.[4] In addition, minor variations in each receptor have been identified. Cannabinoids bind reversibly and stereo-selectively to the cannabinoid receptors. The affinity of an individual cannabinoid to each receptor determines the effect of that cannabinoid. Cannabinoids that bind more selectively to certain receptors are more desirable for medical usage.

Ahh Dennis the collectivist in you is showing. You are assuming we all have the same brain chemistry, you are assuming we are all identical. You have abolished individualism.
Reality is, you are depriving your brethren from something their brains were born to have.
A Tribute Dennis.
Styx- The grand illusion
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=ZW8TlrYhBxk

Welcome to the grand illusion
Come on in and see whats happening
Pay the price, get your tickets for the show
The stage is set, the band starts playing
Suddenly your heart is pounding
Wishing secretly you were a star.

But dont be fooled by the radio
The tv or the magazines
They show you photographs of how your life should be
But theyre just someone elses fantasy
So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because you never win the game
Just remember that its a grand illusion
And deep inside were all the same.
Were all the same...

So if you think your life is complete confusion
Because your neighbors got it made
Just remember that its a grand illusion
And deep inside were all the same.
Were all the same...

America spells competition, join us in our blind ambition
Get yourself a brand new motor car
Someday soon well stop to ponder what on earths this spell were under
We made the grade and still we wonder who the hell we are
All rights go to Styx

Bobby J,

I know cannabis all too well. I know that it leaves you spaced-out for more than 24 hours after you get high. I know that your brain doesn't fully recover to full function until weeks after your last high. Nobody told me this. I know. Now you may want to incapacitate your brain and claim that it is your right to do so, but this does affect others. It affects people that rely on you, namely children, elderly and co-workers.

I also know the culture. The drug world. It is not pretty. Now you might think things would change if only pot were legalized, well it hasn't in the states that have done so.

Legalizing marijuana is a marxist ploy to dope our society. I know that you disagree, but I also know that I am right.

(I used the word utopia, tongue-in-cheek)

Actually Denver basically legalized Cannabis and Colorado basically legalized Medical Marijuana. It was holly rollers like you who circumvented the voter with HB1284.
You and your control freak brethren should move to New Mexico.
BTW, THERE WILL NEVER UTOPIA, NOT IN ANY STATE, UNDER ANY FORM OF GOV.

The Forefathers knew this and designed a government that would not add insult to injury. They knew and accepted human nature and did not try to perfect it. They were all naturalist regardless of religious slant. Think about it.

We agree on States Rights as the BOR instructed. Now you need to honor this principle and leave Colorado Cannabis alone!

Bobby J.

Dennis,

I am mostly libertarian but I do not believe in legalizing elicit drugs, not yet.

I do however believe Cannabis should be completely legal at The Federal level and the Feds should use interstate commerce clause against states that try to prohibit citizens from interstate Cannabis trade.

Obama may be bad, but there is nothing he has done that is worse than Bush 43 Big Pharmacy allegiance. I am POSTIVIE if Republican gets elected, they will do something equally bad as Bush 43 and Obama.

Two trains to serfdom, one may travel slower or take a different route, but they both take us to the same destination. Voluntary Slavery and possibly death.

Dennis

Bobby J,

I've long been an advocate of the elimination of one of these parties, brought about by the development of a third party. Seriously, in 2012, we MUST get obama out of the White House. This has got to be priority #1. Does that leave us voting for the lesser of evils? Yes, again, but we MUST accomplish at least this much.

We must not stop there; however, I do not know if you and I could agree on which direction to go from there, and that is a microcosm of the problem with which we are faced in developing a 3rd party. Clearly the solution lies in minimizing the federal government. This way the states could develop identities to which individuals could relate. This is what was intended in our Constitution. For example; you and I disagree on legalizing illicit drugs. New Mexico could legalize them and you could move there, while Colorado maintains the criminal nature of illicit drugs and I would stay here. Now if a utopia develops in either state, then other states could follow that success. This kind of development cannot happen with the overbearing federal government we have now.

Fundamentally this is the difference between conservatives, and liberal (marxist-communist) socialists. The role of our federal government. Conservatives want to minimize it, and liberals want to maximize it. What does our Constitution say?

Ultimately it will come to another civil/revolutionary war, and most likely a division of our once great nation. The liberal, atheistic, progressives will form two nations. One on the East coast, and one on the West coast. The conservative, principled and moral based population will form within the middle of the USA, including the Gulf states, will form the New United States of America.

we true Americans will NOT be denied

Bobby J.

Dennis,

I mean The Republican Party, both its elected representatives and its voters.

Their policies are just as much Marxist as Demoncrats. Nixon gold standard cut, Reagan debt, Bush wars. Bush Jr, Prescritpion plan. I can go on forever.


"A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers…. The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth."

Read this article from the Independent. Obamanation's fall from grace in Hollyweird, his A list of actors and donors you can boycott, and what drives the left.
Been going on for a longtime.

Bobby J,

I adamantly disagree, if by "right" you mean conservative. Now if you mean republican, then maybe I see your point.

President Obama is touting how terrible it is to hurt the middle class regarding tax cuts ($1,000.00) per family per year. Of great interest is that his Democrat cohort Gov Hickenlooper is requesting that personal property tax exemptions for senior's over 65, be disallowed. What hypocracy. Gov Hickenlooper should think this overy more carefully, as that tax excemption provides much need food for those seniors that are just barely getting by. Of course if the middle class citizen is your priority, then by all means shove the poor senior citizen under the bus. Shame on you all.

Nor does the right.

Dennis

When we had the opportunity to make the tough decisions, we were absent. I believe that the internet has empowered the general population with knowledge, normally hidden from us in the past by the main stream media. We slumbered, we lost. It is much too late to make a difference now, as the left is so entrenched in the marxist-communist agenda that they don't even realize it. The only way to lever our situation is by force. This force must be responsive, defensive, organized and strategic. We (true Americans) will not fire the first shot, but we will fire the last.

I cannot emphasize this enough; prepare now
