I remember, but am still at a loss as to why, if you don't think anyone "needs" a HCAW, and we finally smarten up enough to realize this as a collective, what is the problem with getting them out of circulation as much as is possible?
Because we weren't smart enough to outlaw them sooner, anyone who legally purchased one should get to keep theirs? I just don't get this mindset.
When the "legal pot" stuff was all the rave (k2 or something), many people bought it legally. Then most states made it illegal. Since it was made illegal, you could get in trouble for possessing it, even though you bought it legally.
Is this different? Or do you believe that the legally purchased fake pot should have been allowed to be possessed until the purchaser smoked it all and he should just not be allowed to buy any more going forward?
Yes, consumables are consumables. If someone purchased 50000 lbs of syn pot, yeah, I have no problem with them smoking it up.
To put it another way, I have guns. Legal guns. No AW. If I'm required to register all of them, rifles/shotguns, I'm fine with that. If the govt decides one of them is illegal, under new laws, I would not surrender it. Now I'm a criminal.
