Good news for free-spirited air travelers:

It is totally cool to get naked at the airport!

Just make sure you are doing it in protest of TSA's security policies.

I have a hard time swallowing the fact that california residence voted an option for the public and the public is still waiting for law enforcment to advise them. Law enforcment works for the public. we may not always agree as Americans on all things, but we do have a responsability to enforce the will of the majority sands any violence. The majority in california want pot at this time. Its been voted and decided. that should be it. Or does no mean yes and yes means no? cut the double talk and stand up.

You have a few years on me, I started smoking God's herb in 1969 on the way to Woodstock, too bad I didn't make it,lol. I evidently missed a good party.

My wife and I own and opperate three businesses, we put two children through college and volunteer in the community. Some people still call me a pot head but most of them have passed on now.

It is not going to happen as people who smoke pot don't vote. They are stoned and forget. It is ok though as when you are stoned nothing matters. It isn't important anyway and really to complicated to think about. Just have a good time and don't let things bum you out. Legal weed doesn't taste good anyway. What would be really cool is if they taxed taxes. They could make billons of dollars if that were legal. I would have to maybe get a job just to pay my tax tax. Whatever............

legalize it, educate kids from young age the long term problems from prolonged use and parents raise your kids to not do drugs.

There will always be a few that think pot is an evil drug and the person is weak for using it. Their loss, my gain.
In moderation, I will continue smoking good ole sticky bud forever.

If you are going to call it "typical pothead behavior" then you are going to have to do better than your links. First off this behavior is far from "typical" and second your links did not specifically blame the actions on marijuana alone.

The theater shooter link says, "A report of his alleged weed smoking was attributed to the New York Post, but ...

... we couldn't find the story nowhere online. TMZ points to a piece that doesn't mention such toking, saying:

... A man who lived across the street from Holmes told the NY Post he used to "see him smoking weed behind the apartment." He told the paper, "Nobody ever really talked to him. He was alone a lot."

The man was looking "from across the street and could see plainly behind the apartment, whatever. This one is the most lame of your links it even used the word "alledged". What about the other drugs he took that evening, you didn't mention that?


The face chewer link says, "The 31-year-old was once diagnosed with schizophrenia after a misdemeanour arrest, reported Local10. A history of mental illness coupled with marijuana is now being considered as a possible cause of the frenzied attack along the MacArthur Causeway"

The phrase, "Now being considered as possible" doesn't present the conclusions you are trying to sell us. What about his "history of mental illness" could that have been a major factor?

The Baby on roof of car link-

"Police said Clouser and her boyfriend had been smoking marijuana in a park and left with the toddler to buy beer late on Friday night. Officers stopped the car and the boyfriend was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence while driving with the baby in the 2000 Ford Focus.

Police learned that Clouser was so upset about the arrest that she drove to a friend's home and "admittedly smoked one or two additional bowls of marijuana," Holmes said."

Sounds like alcohol may have played a role in this one and I don't believe that anyone who advocates legalizing medical marijuana would be toking and drinking around a child. Why didn't the police take the child when they arrested the male for DUI? I don't drink and I firmly believe that anyone who does these things with children present should be in jail for a long time. Some people are just unfit to raise children, this case proved that but it failed to prove that marijuana was the sole cause of what happened.

Your last link didn't show me anything about marijuana effects that I could find, just freaky stuff only a crazy person would be interested in. From seeing how much time you put into this attack on medical marijuana, it is evident to me that you must be a drug dealer and fear for your job security.

I have smoked marijuana for 43 years and have never harmed anyone, but then again, I don't drink or do other drugs, not even an asprin.

Now would you like for me to show some links about alcohol abuse and its effects on society? How about the horrors caused by tobacco use through the diseases that it brings. Children can still buy candy cigarettes in Kentucky, now there is something to be upset over.

Well, first of all, there is no such thing as "medical" Marijuana. Marijuana is a dangerous mind destroying, schizophrenia causing class 1 illegal drug. Illegal "Medical" Marijuana is an emotional catch phrase designed to make acceptable dangerous drug addiction - the "foot in the door" tactic.*(so to speak)*

Secondarily, you yourself argue that mind rotting pot is "an associated factor" in the horrible examples I quoted. It is the obverse of the coin that "proves" 400,000 "deaths" are "associated" with beneficial tobacco smoking that schizophrenic potheads regularly pull out of their posterior orifices to "justify" their unquenchable addiction to this dangerous mind destroying pot. This, even though there has never been any reputable medical studies whatsoever proving tobacco use is harmful in any way.

I'm wowed as usual. You reallly need to look at facts before you spout off. You say there is "no such thing as "medical" Marijuana"

"Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years."

http://www.cancer.gov/cancertopics/pdq/cam/ca...

Actually its around 10,000 documented years of medicinal use.

You say, "unquenchable addiction to this dangerous mind destroying pot"

I can show studies that refute these claims, I will search and link them for you if you like.

Myth-

"Marijuana has a higher risk of causing cancer than cigarettes/tobacco"

"No, it doesn't. There has not been one, offical medical study that says so. There have been no links to cannabis and lung cancer."
