I’d like to see it happen but it won’t because the owners of the United States would never let it. Big corporations have no interest in seeing crime go down and people being happy and no one killing each other over chemicals. They want things to remain as they are so they can reap the benefits of everyone else’s pain. As long as humans think that money is the answer to all of life’s problems, we continue to circle the drain and everyday gets closer to self destruction. I just wish I could be there at the end to watch all the jokers go down who thought they knew what they were talking about wail in despair and regret.

R U dead inside from using un-perscribed drugs?

No, I’m not dead inside from “un-perscribed drugs”. I’m dead inside because people don’t want to be bothered with living a good life but would rather invest absolutely nothing so we end up with a country and a culture like we live in now. Do you understand? Most likely not. Or if by the minute chance that you do, you don’t care.

Cheer up, bud. This country & culture isn’t all bad. We just landed a nuclear powered robot on the surface of mars. That’s pretty cool, right?

The Grass Roots party basically shot itself in the arse by putting Carlson up there as a candidate. I believe we should be legalizing marijuana. I have no respect for Carlson and the trash he’s selling vulnerable people. Marijuana does not produce the type of negative effect that his product(s) are. Guess they won’t be my party of choice! Wonder how much of his tainted cash he slipped their way…

As if Obama isn’t a big enough joke, the dopers want a guy like Carlson to lead the country? This is proof positive that drugs do indeed cause cognitive dysfunction.

Couldn’t be any worse: Dubbya nipped from time to time from a bottle of Johnnie tucked away in the bottom desk drawer there in the Oval Office, and Barack usually hits the crack pipe before he orders a drone strike for an extra little thrill.

Actually, the sane adults (anyone who opposes legalizing additional mind altering drugs) should use this nomination wisely. Take a look at the guy — he looks like death warmed over, likely from his self-medicating with the crap he sells. He should be the poster child of keeping dangerous drugs from being sold to impressionable youth and low I.Q. citizens.
In, fact here’s the Ad campaign opener: A picture of a healthy, accomplished looking and smiling young man: “This is You…”, and then any of the several unsightly photo’s of Mr. Carlson: “This is You on synthetic drugs…” .
So, there you go, the start of a successful anti-drug campaign! This is my gift to the community, no charge (I know, and probably worth every cent, eh!?).

i think he has a ben franklin look to him actually lol…and dont hate the man because he is doing what you are either unwilling to do or unequipped to do.

Don’t hate the man because he’s willing to do what I’m unwilling to do? What kind of crap is that?! Carlson exploits the addiction of people, and addiction he played a large role in producing in the first place. And for this he should be honored? He’s lucky the families of his victims don’t take their rage out on him. Levi, you rail against the 1%, the affluent, and those evil corporation, yet you deify a drug pusher. What’s wrong with this picture? Corporations employee people. Carlson makes them unemployable. The 1%’ers pay income taxes, while the addicts collect disability and welfare. The affluent are, well, affluent. Drug pushers are effluent. It’s time the addicts and their apologists stopped making excuses, stopped being a burden, and started contributing in a positive way to society. Legalizing drugs isn’t going to change these peoples behavior, it will only make it legal.

Hugh…you have been brainwashed by a government propaganda about legalization because it’s about them getting more tax dollars and power.
Legalization of marijuana would solve a lot of things for us including our releasing violent criminals early into society because have to make room in prisons because of zero tolerance nonense.
Regarding those smoking pot as not being contributors…you should note that we’ve had at least 4 US Presidents that know of that smoked weed and that included Jefferson and Lincoln…
I highly recommend you and anyone else that hasn’t seen it…to watch the History channels documentary on marijuana and cocaine if it airs again…quarantee will be an eye opener.
Regarding Carlson…I think he’s without scruples and is last person want representing the cause for legalization…do more harm then good.

Even though Jim Carlson has no chance of being elected, I would vote for him before I’d vote for Mitt Romney.

This may sound a bit off the wall, but Jim entering the Presidental race may have national implications. I for one believe that Minnesota is indeed a toss up state and much more closer than what the national polls are showing. If you take a guy like Jim, that has a rather large pile of disposable income, he has the capability of making some waves with people that are on the fence, just plain fed up with the system or maybe had a weak mind set last time to fall for Obama’s everything is free campaign promises. If I’m the head of Obama’s campaign in Minnesota my eyebrow just turned up. [Jim: where do I sign up to help?]

That’s not a “bit off the wall” — that cleared the wall and flew for miles.
First, you believe Minnesota is a toss-up state? Excuse me while I ROTFLMAO. Where the hell is Romney? How many stops has he made here? Why didn’t he pick Pawlenty? He conceded Minnesota from day one. Hell, Minnesota’s delegates are even backing Ron Paul at the national convention.
Second, Jim doesn’t have a very large disposable income. The Duluth Police Department and DEA have it all now.
Third, the most votes a Grassroots candidate from president has ever received was 5,378, and that was the one year they managed to get on two states’ ballots. Despite what your Republican gods may have you believe, 5,000, even 10,000 or 100,000, votes taken away from Obama aren’t going to be enough to give Romney Minnesota.

Dan H…..LOL!! You sure have that right! The only folks that have a higher rate of stupidity ….. than other Minnesotans……are Duluthian voters…….and other voters in Northeastern Minnesota!

Quite right, they continue to vote for politicians who don’t understand the fundamentals of capitalism and send business pouring into South Dakota like the state has sprung a leak.

Tom, don’t be so ignorant. Of course Minnesota is a toss-up state, sure it doesn’t get the media play like So. Carolina, Virginia , Ohio and such, but it definately is no lock for Obama. If it wasn’t for an independant third party stooge running for governor, Minnesota’s state government would have mirrored Wisconsin’s – Republican majority in all branches of government!
I’m going to say this Presidental race in Minnesota has the potential to be as close as 2008′s Franken/Coleman race and Jim Carlson pulling even just a few hundred votes could represent the difference as did the 400 write-in ballots all for Franken found in the trunk of some clerk’s car that were validated and counted.

He’s got a pretty good chance here in Minnesota. After all, we got Mark Dayton.

He doesn’t run his business $1.5 trillion in the red like Obumma so he’d probably do a better job.
