Sadly it's the same on both sides. People can't debate without getting emotional. I cite personal experience and facts rather than name calling, others don't.

I can't see how you got this; "Letsallgethigh" #63 believes that all who enjoy cannabis are irresponsible enough to get in their car and kill a family" from letsallgethigh replying to the previous poster stating that he was ok with someone driving around impaired from marijuana much like someone driving around impaired from alcohol.
I'm the same way. Name calling accomplishes nothing. As for #63, his reference about a user driving and killing a family makes the assumption. Either way, i have yet to see any justification to continue this failed prohibition. Even if you eradicate all of the lies, the way it started is enough for me to say it should be abolished.

Really, imagine what it's like to look in the mirror everyday and realize that you are a looser.. How that feel??
Let's hope that scaremongering, insecure fools like you don't have children. Because then they will be misspelling simple words like "loser", and finding forums in which to project their obvious feelings of inadequacy. I’m just sayin’.

He was comparing impairment from alcohol to marijuna where the original poster said that he didnt mind people driving high from marijuana as compared to impaired from alcohol. Impairment is impairment whether its from mj, alcohol, prescibed meds, lack of sleep, etc. It's irresponsible behavior that is at the core of the argument and I can see his point.

By the way, you're one of the few rational pro mj advocates that can debate without citing theory or propaganda. So my hat is off to you despite the difference of opinion.

Same to you. I advocate responsible cannabis use. Driving under the influence of anything is risky and has the potential to do harm to others. However, to use that as a basis to continue this prohibition is ludicrous.
If we banned everything that could be abused and negatively influence driving, we'd have no alcohol, no prescrip meds, cell phones, sprey paint, whipped cream, well, you get my point. There should be a common ground where responsible adults can obtain or grow cannabis while not treading on the rights of others.

I don't understand why responsible adults need to grow marijuana when they can buy it down at the local dispencary. Prop 215 legalized medical mj. Anyone with a doctor's note, for whatever "legitimate" ailment that plaques them can buy mj.

It's cheaper, and therapeutic to grow your own. You also don't have to worry about what is in it. You also leave teh med cannabis for those who actually need it.
