Marijuana Geocoin?

Recommended Posts

I got an email from Oakcoins/Geoswag for a Pot or Pot geocoin for Geowoodstock. Although it is partially legal in certain states, it's still illegal federally.

 

Am I the only one is is upset about this?

As Great Scott! says, it's only a coin.. :)

I wouldn't add it to my collection, but others probably would

- The times, you know...

 

Guess I missed where pot's now okay, but I'm a $^&*# for having a marlboro. :lol:

Wait... it's not even the official Geowoodstock coin. But given that the event is taking place in Denver where pot has been legalized why get upset if someone wants to make their own coin to celebrate that fact?

It's federally illegal, and some of those laws still apply to CO, WA, etc.

Where can I get cigarette Geocoins? Maybe from the years when tobacco was pronounced to be medicine. People sure were gullible, way back when. :ph34r:

You don't like it, don't buy one. I know it's a hard concept to follow, but believe me, it really does work.

Yes, you are :ph34r:

 

BTW, don't travel to Amsterdam, you might get more upset.

What really blew my mind is the OP is in Alanta, GA and owns geocaches in Idaho and Washington. :unsure:

I don't find it funny, I just don't understand how you can maintain them from Alanta. :)

Nice edit to take the "I find it funny" out of your original post.

 

There are people who can maintain them. Just like how my brother still has some in Atlanta, yet he lives in Minneapolis now.

I don't understand. Is the coin considered illegal/offensive because it has drug connotations?

You are mis-quoting me intentionally. <_< I only edited the emoticon.

 

It's okay to own listings in other States that others maintain for you. I prefer to maintain my own listings, but whatever works for you, it's none of my concerns.

 

I'm sure that some geocachers were offended by the Tincup Whiskey trackables promotion here as well as this pot geocoin that you speak of.

As a collector, I would be interested in one. :)

YEP, Only a Geocoin and with MY experience, I know that IF one makes it, and it is "different" sort of a novelty, THEY WILL BUY IT :D:rolleyes:

I Know it has been awhile since I have been here. BUT, why would caches even be mentioned on this "GEOCOIN" Forum??? Maybe I am missing something Here. :unsure:

I think you're kind of alone on this one. Even the Justice Department doesn't appear to be too concerned with what the State's do:

The coin is a Geoswag project coin and is NON-trackable. It does not need GC approval and it will have your preferred ID name.

 

As with all coins ... don't like it ? - don't buy it !

 

I save my voice for where I put my $$$ - I'm NOT participating .... B)

It's hip to be controversial. It creates buzz.

That's a game changer. That makes it a token and not a geocoin. Geocoins are trackable on Groundspeak. B)

Now there's another can of worms to open (whether trackability makes something a geocoin or not). I recall some very heated debates about that very topic in the past.

 

Thanks to everybody for keeping what could be a very sensitive topic on-track gang.

Yes, there are non-trackable mystery coins that geocachers pay top dollar for. I almost forgot about my Bell Witch mystery coin. :anicute:

And there you have it, it's non-trackable, so I'm closing this thread.
