Re: WRONG WRONG WRONG
you have know ****ing idea what you are talking about! Pot destroys lives. It's illegal for a reason. It makes you dumb, and you make poor choices while smoking it. some people start smoking that chit and can never get away from it.
Who has no idea? I think it is you gunny. Where do you get your information? I am sure you are right wing pro-prohibition about everything. No one should have sex, do drugs, or do anything without first calling their congressmen and asking for approval. The fact that you actually believe that an herb that has been in use since before Jesus even walked the Earth is a 'dangerous' thing stipulates that you are incapable of making an educated comment on this subject. If you did any research before you opened your suck-hole you would have already known that the levels of impairment due to the drug THC are less than that of the drug ALCOHOL. There are people in the USA who can handle the responsibility of paying their bills, having a family, and being outstanding members of the community and still smoke pot. I know it must be hard to believe, but outside of the 30 or 40 people you personally know in the world, there are people (probably your boss) that go home and burn one just like you would go home and sip one. For ANYONE in the USA or CANADA that consumes alcohol yet tries to convince people that marijuana is bad, I have one thing to say. YOU ARE A HYPOCRITE. The effects of alcohol are far more 'dangerous' than those of pot. How many people smoke a joint and drive their car into a van carrying a family? How many pot-heads do you know that get stoned and start fights or become abusive? Not too many people (statistically) get high and have violent attitudes. The fact that marijuana wasn't even illegal in the US until the government passed prohibition for alcohol should say something to you "know it all deputy drug czars" out there. Marijuana was pushed into the controlled substance schedule after a big lobbying campaign by a synthetics company called Du Pont in 1936. Have you heard of them? They were afraid they would not make so much profit with their synthetic products if people in the US kept using products (such as clothing) that were made of hemp. So, after the 21st Amendment passed and BOTH pot and beer were made legal again, the Marijuana Tax Act of 1936 was passed in order to make the taxes too high for Hemp farmers and scheduled marijuana as a "controlled substance."
If pot is so bad - why is it medicine in some states?
If pot is so 'dangerous' - why hasn't ANYONE IN THE WORLD contracted cancer from using ONLY marijuana?
If pot is so horrible - why can it run vehicles more efficiently than the gasoline and oil that Bush is so eager to steal from the rest of the world?
If pot is so bad - WHY DO OTHER CIVILIZED NATIONS use it as medicine and have lax-ed legislation regarding its use?
