Reason attended the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition, and encountered Billy Tauzin, former conservative congressman from Louisiana, who …


  1. Blessing and a curse. You'll notice once it's legal big weed companies will control everything, including the price. You'll need a permit to grow, and to get weed you'll have to go to dispensaries. I'm ok with that

  2. When it's fully legal all you paranoid parents out there are going to have to get use to it or momve to Iraq we're there is no freedom 🙂

  3. this helps who? and how? this is absurd….why? pot does not pay for any of our tax problems……its like taxing air…why? oh because it gives them money. now they can pay for their retirement plans. fuck that! i should not fund government liabilities.

  4. I expect it to be fully legal 50 years — in the past, retroactively. Screw congress and the cowardly states. We should just take control of our own bodies now. It's OUR lives. We don't belong to those creeps.

  5. The entire Controlled Substances Act should have been repealed decades ago. Every form of prohibition does more harm than good.

  6. So now you fucking Yanks make marijuana legal and so it's ok. U can manufacture it and push drugs on other nations. Yet u destroyed countries of South America for 'illegal' drug trade. Why is that? Why is US marijuana ok and Columbian cocaine isn't. Why r the current American big pharma and marijuana barons reviled criminal drug Lords, but El Chapo or Escobar were. Fucking Western double standards.

  7. Mississippi is stuck in the mud about cannabis. There's no understanding, blatant disregard for simple decisions, and depression. I live in this (only thing to do is eat and compare) state. The SAME thing's happening here and you try to make the best of it but the no progress is down right depressing. Cannabis is needed here.


  8. Im in Texas i have degenerative disk dease my doctor told me to drink alcohol and smoke weed instead of giving me hydrocodone

  9. no he didn't. trump promised to end foreign wars, and yet we have more operations and more troops killing more people then before trump came to power.

  10. As far as leftist liberals, weed is their only quality that isn't authoritarian but is redeemable at the same time. That and being pro choice.

  11. I didn’t know weed can cure cancer. The way they present it, they make it seem like weed is the best drug for all illnesses

  12. Big Pharma will eventually push, or not counter legalization as long as they eventually control it through requiring a prescription and regulations allowing only certain entities to manufacture and process weed derivatives, just as how big pharma is the only ones making most prescription drugs now.

  13. I live in Santa Fe New Mexico we're neighbors to Colorado & soon we'll be following suit hahaha LOL to the rest of you Bland States!

  14. The entire point of the pharmaceutical industry is to keep people not to sick to die. But sick enough to keep buying. So they ain't really looking for new medicines, cures, etc.

  15. So we're going to be a nation of stupid lazy people. Especially ppl under 25 are going to have their brains destroyed. I guess they figured we needed more dumb people in this country. We are going to get our asses handed to us internationally when all the top professions are filled by people who didn't do marijuana.

    Btw, i'm all for medical use for medical mj. But for the public it will erode and maybe destroy our nation.
