I am not a thief so you were not protecting anything or anyone from the likes of me. I am a peaceful, loving, caring, hippie.My penis is fine according to the 32 years of smiles on Mrs. Garcias face,52,no viagra yet,maybe when I am 90 .. If and when the day comes that we no longer can have intercourse ,due to some health factor,we will still be loving and caring for each other. Sexual Intercourse doesn't hold a marriage together,dummie,LOVE does. You have a warped sense of LOVE and SEX. Paying interest on food is absurd you should have grown you some veggies last summer instead of typing o the computer all summer when we met..We eat organic vegetarian 90% of the time,ride a bike a minimum of 5 miles a day.I grow a vast amount,Organically,of the food I consume and all the Marijuana I consume I also grow organically.As far a weapons ,there you go again with the need to keep hurting/torturing people.Living off of interest and students loans is no way to help the American economy ,in fact you are really an INSURGENT helping to destroy the American economy.

Don't assume it. Just because I don't get paid for doing my part which one time landed me in the slammer for protecting someone else's property from the likes of you... Were they stealing from the homeowners or were they the homeowners? Couldn't tell you, no one did check the ID's did they? And I repaid that by doing my time...I stayed, I didn't relie on anyone bailing me out...it is called personal responsibility. While there I also met some women more like Vinces chick who have no clue about what they are doing to themselves nor their own. One girl in particular arrested twice in the same week for selling drugs and he main concern was what her mom did to her...? Are you taking notes Vinces Chick? And yes, she still protected the criminal kind, that would be someone like you that would be you Jerry Garcia Aka drug dealer. Regarding where I get my food, I buy it, I don't steal it...I might pay more interest for doing so, but it is my credit card or borrow money which needs to be repaid...like my student loans. Children, if you are not in school tomorrow, I will bring the police to your home! Jerry Garcia Aka Drug dealer have you been checked for HIV/AIDES lately? Better be careful before your thing falls off...and then your wife won't be loving you too much! Have you considered the reason why women like me don't date might be because of men like you? I rather abstain thank you. This is what this world has come too? Do you think I can have my weapon of choice back?

You haven't stolen probably because you have relied on others paying you from monies which they probably stole in order to pay for their habits...you people that stupid...then pay your consequences. Willie Nelson is a happy fun loving hippie...difference is I don't think he relies on addicts to make his living. In fact, he is probably stuggling with his own addiction...no thanks to you.

No one in the 6,000 year History of Marijuana Use,including Moses, has ever died from Inhalation or Ingestion of Marijuana. It contains no Poisons,fool.You can choke to death on anything like you are doing now on your own words.Again the Gateway Theory has been proven false,which proves you need to go to the DEA web site and re-read the facts,mam.

See that is where you are wrong Jerry Garcia aka Drug dealer incase you aren't aware people have actually been poisoned with marijuana whether it was accidental or because of a suicide or an actual assault...if you don't believe me...check your books...or better yet, call poison control...these drugs are illegal for a reason. Now, imagine a little child finding mom's or dad's stash...alot smaller than an adult. And don't forget what could happen to an individual who is under the influence of this narcotic as little as it might be and mixes it with alcohol...chances are they will not able to wake up if on back and too knocked out s/he might be too out of it to realize they are about to up chuck...which results in one choking to death. Remember, it is a gateway drug because it is usually second to ciggarettes, they were ok...let's try something else, it might be ok for the moment...let's try something else...and etc. etc. etc. Jerry Garcia aka drug dealer...how about you get into a different market?

The Institute of Medicine agrees that the marijuana-gateway theory is misleading:
"In the sense that marijuana use typically precedes rather than follows initiation of other illicit drug use, it is indeed a "gateway" drug. But because underage smoking and alcohol use typically precede marijuana use, marijuana is not the most common, and is rarely the first, "gateway" to illicit drug use. There is no conclusive evidence that the drug effects of marijuana are causally linked to the subsequent abuse of other illicit drugs." (from the Executive Summary of the IOM report Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base)

What's wrong with the Gateway theory?
The gateway theory doesn't really explain anything. It's just an observation that has been distorted. It's true that hard drug users generally try marijuana before they try hard drugs, but that's only because marijuana is more popular and easier to obtain than other illegal drugs. The more important observation is that MOST people who use marijuana DO NOT go on to use harder drugs. There is nothing special about using marijuana that makes people want to use harder drugs.

Distortion 7: Gateway Theory
Distortion 7: Marijuana is a gateway drug that leads to heroin and cocaine addiction.

False. The ‘gateway’ claim is a myth. Marijuana is the most widely used illicit drug so it is very likely that people who use less commonly-used drugs will have also tried marijuana. That does not mean marijuana led to hard drug use. The research indicates most marijuana users do not go onto use hard drugs; marijuana is more properly viewed as a strainer that catches most illicit drug users and they go no further. The numbers bear out these findings: According to the federal government 76.3 million people have tried marijuana, while only 2.78 million have ever tried heroin in their lifetimes and only 5.3 million have ever tried cocaine in their lives. The figures for monthly use are similar: 10.7 million Americans admit to being regular marijuana users, yet only 1.2 million admit to using cocaine each month - 1 for every 9 marijuana users - and 130,000 people use heroin monthly, or 1 for every 80 regular marijuana users.

Gateway to Nowhere?
The evidence that pot doesn't lead to heroin.
By Ryan Grim
Posted Thursday, July 20, 2006, at 11:57 AM ET
Heroin
Earlier this month, professor Yasmin Hurd of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine released a study showing that rats exposed to the main ingredient in marijuana during their adolescence showed a greater sensitivity to heroin as adults. The wire lit up with articles announcing confirmation for the "gateway theory"—the claim that marijuana use leads to harder drugs.

It's a theory that has long seemed to make intuitive sense, but remained unproven. The federal government's last National Survey on Drug Use and Health, conducted in 2004, counted about 97 million Americans who have tried marijuana, compared to 3 million who have tried heroin (166,000 had used it in the previous month). That's not much of a rush through the gateway. And a number of studies have demonstrated that your chances of becoming an addict are higher if addiction runs in your family, or if heroin is readily available in your community, or if you're a risk-taker. These factors can account for the total number of heroin addicts, which could make the gateway theory superfluous.

Early Squirrely,Maybe you should read this again 35 Billion Dollar Indusry and that is just Cannabis. That does not include the papers,bongs,pipes, Marijuana Slogan shirts,caps,bling bling. Take pot out of America and she will bankrupt!!Read and paranoid yourself to death.--------- Cannabis biggest cash crop in United States

Daily Times Monitor

LAHORE: Marijuana is the most valuable cash crop in the United States, worth more to its growers than corn and wheat combined, according to a new report by a leading American drug reform lobbyist that cites the US government’s own figures, says an article in the Los Angeles Times.

Decades of government efforts to crack down on both the cultivation and consumption of pot have had a counter-productive effect, since even the most conservative government estimates suggest domestic marijuana production has increased tenfold in the past 25 years. It is the leading cash crop in 12 states, and one of the top five crops in 39 states.

The report’s author, Jon Gettman, says it is “larger than cotton in Alabama, larger than grapes, vegetables and hay in California, larger than peanuts in Georgia, and larger than tobacco in South and North Carolina”.

California accounts for almost a third of all US production. It is a major economic force in the state, especially in the redwood forests in the north, where the smell of weed wafts unmistakably down the streets of several towns.

Marijuana remains popular with the baby boomer generation, which first experimented with it in the 1950s and 1960s. And its use is booming among teenagers and young adults, especially as alcohol cannot be sold to people under the age of 21. US Marijuana cultivation is worth more than $ 35 billion per year. And that is a conservative estimate, based on government price surveys, says Gettman.

Hey Early Squirrely,here is that Oct 6th News Atricle.--------- Man still critical after industrial accident
October 6, 2006
EUGENE, Ore.(AP)— An industrial accident that left a bakery worker in critical condition after nearly suffocating in a tub of dough has raised concerns about plant safety, a union official said.

Brian Byrne remained in intensive care at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Eugene on Thursday following Monday’s accident at the new $42 million Williams Bakery plant.

The plant had its grand opening in August but has been operating since July. Workers at the plant have since expressed concerns about safety, said Gene Beaudoin, business agent for the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union Local 114 in Portland.

In particular, they have concerns about the fermentation room, where bread dough weighing hundreds of pounds slowly rises in 10-foot-long troughs while moving slowly along a conveyor, Beaudoin said. As the dough rises and fills with gases, it needs to be punctured or punched down to keep it from overtopping the trough.

At the old bakery near the University of Oregon, workers punctured the dough with knives. The new bakery was designed with air jets that were supposed to beat the dough down, but the system wasn’t working because the air just scattered the dough around,“making a bigger mess,” Beaudoin said.

So the air jets system was turned off, and workers manually deflated the dough with their hands or paddles, he said.“I believe that’s what he was trying to do — knock down the sponge,” he said.

On Monday afternoon, Byrne, a veteran of more than 30 years at the bakery, somehow got pinned between a machine guard made of Plexiglass and the trough of dough, according to the Oregon Occupational Health and Safety Division.
