5. Mail-Delivered Weed Prevents Awkward Conversations with That Guy You Don't Really Like

Not everybody likes their weed dealer. He or she might be a good person and you don't really have anything against them, but maybe you just don't click and you'd rather just get your stuff and go. But that would be rude. And you need to maintain this relationship, so you stay, talk about the weather or civil engineering, and just feel weird for 20 minutes. And of course, there's always the possibility your weed dealer guilt-trips you into staying to smoke a joint, witness a murder, and then flee for your life from crooked cops and drug lords.

But mail-delivered weed? That allows you to indulge your anti-social smoker fantasies with no awkwardness and no hurt feelings whatsoever.

Too bad it's illegal.

Will the RFT run an article on having "assault rifles" mailed into NYC or Chicago, just to help out the USPS? Mailing controlled substances, especially since the product is still illegal outside of some states, is a federal crime. A crime both the buyer and seller will be dealt with regardless of which state they live. Many seem to in the state of denial, but reality will awaken them.


My only objection to legalizing pot is the huge social safety net we have made for potheads and other drug users. If someone wants to waste their life being high - go for it, but do not expect me to pay for your food stamps, welfare or unemployment checks, or provide you anything at all.

Wiser to use FedEx or UPS than the USPS. The postman today will be tomorrow's UPS delivery driver, not the Walmart greeter.


USPS should go to half the routes on M-W-F, and the other half on T-Th-S. A business needing daily deliveries can pick it up at the post office.

wrong look at states that already do it. just because there is a free market in legal states does not mean there is still not a very stable black market still. tons of stuff gets turned away from rx shops and dispensaries and all of that floods in to the black market and stays in state or goes out of state. even in legal states you can buy your own clones and grow it yourself within the realms of the state law.

I've been around the block.. In a world where your going to be able to buy starters any day of the week.... I think your under estimating the daily smoker...

This is a culture of right now. Weed takes around 4-6 months start to finish to grow and if you know what you're doing you'll have a good product. It costs around 7-800 for a decent grow setup, plus nutrients, time, etc. Far less people will be growing than you think.

Did you know your first class mail and parcels are protected from search and seizures under the 4th Amendment?

I hate to break it to you but you can't grow Tobacco just anywhere or in small rooms to make it lucrative. You should have used grain alcohol as a better example. But depending on where you live lots of people still do it and it's easy to get.

When it is legal everyone will either grow it or know someone that does.... Can't see the sales being that great when every state has it.

Dude... I'm not getting any weed through the mail. No way. Not until full legalization occurs on a Federal level. Asking a government entity to bring you something the government considers criminal is like asking your wife to go find a whore who will blow you. Or something like that...

What about the drug dealers??? If we legalize then they'll be out of the job. If the Crime Rate lowers then Police will have nothing to do, leading to their loss of jobs. If it gets legalizd here then there will be no need to have it shipped in, affecting Postal jobs... I say keep it the same and if you get caught with this illegal drug its your problem

I keep telling people that the prohibition has failed and most of them tell me that they agree with me but I don't think most of them fully understand what that means. This is our money leaving our state when we could be making it right here. Does anyone else not see that the longer states hold back on the legalization the harder things are going to be? This country really has some growing up to do. Legalize, regulate and tax it. Stop sending your money to Colorado and California or even worse To The Drug Cartels In Mexico and Afghanistan. Fight for legalization in your state and take credit for creating jobs and lowering the crime rate. Yes ladies and gentleman the numbers are in from Colorado and if you have been paying attention you would understand that Crime has actually gone down as a direct result of the state Legalizing, regulating and taxing Marijuana.

The point is...rft allowed this article to be published...it let's them prove that their style or voice is quite adolescent and unrefined...sure most of us might agree with the fact that weed is alright and shouldn't be illegal and yes a lot of us might want to be like "hey wouldn't it be cool if weed was legal and wouldn't it be cool if we could just mail it around"...but why pay someone to write an article like this (ESPECIALLY WITH SUCH FUCKING TYPOS) and basically publish the transcript of a really, really stoned conversation....?

I am a firm proponent of the medicinal qualities of marijuana and this article is complete bullshit. Its illegal here, regardless of where its coming from, and if it were legal here we wouldn't need to have it shipped. Your company denied my application for proofreader, and that's a damn shame considering the typos and shitty grammar portrayed in this article. I have half a mind to delete the rft from my feed after all this. Write quality articles or fuck off.
