mm "stupid drug addicts" mmmm your showing your lack of knowledge immediately with that statement alone talking about pot smokers.
"Make you dumb as a post" the pot smokers seem to be able to remember the name and registration details to post, whats your excuse, just plain brainless
and are the "stupid drug addicts" including the ones taking coffee, alcohol, tobacco, valium, oxycontin, morphine ansd all its derivatives. the children being prescribed ritalin. Aspirin, paracetomol
all these drugs are known to kill people on a regular basis, then we can look at the problems that the pharmaceutical companies are causing with the push on sales of anti depressants which many are known to be highly addictive, we can move along to the psychotropics that are being pushed onto the public without safe screening and adequate testing just so a drug dealing companies can make more money with governments well wishes, and look after there shareholders pecuniary interests.
in future before you open your mouth you should get your facts correct and ensure they are factual, and then look at your war on drugs wholistically not from the blinkered world of misfacts that you defecate from.
Why wasn't heroin, cocaine or meth in your list of "drugs"? Why not legalize those too? Why should you potheads get to use your drug of choice and not the addicts that use any of the other harmful drugs? What's the difference?

How is pot any different than the other things you claimed to be "drugs" other than the fact that pot is illegal? You potheads are hooked on pot that's why. And don't feed me the "pot isn't habit forming" bullshit, because that's what it is - bullshit.

If all the "drugs" you listed are so bad, what sense does it make to add another one to the list? Because you potheads want pot, that's why.

<quoted text> the gov. is absolutley the biggest drug dealer there has ever been, they make more money then the oil companies, and I completely agree with you're very educated and well explained comment,(although I more admire you then love you)but you have to admit that this guy had to have smoked one to many when he came up with this plan!
Thank you for your agreeance with my comments,
it's ok to admire not all can love me lol.

I don't think that this "Who" persona was smoking pot to post this diatribe. The lack of intelligence and thought that went into there outburst depicts alcohol overuse maybe or to me more likely a psychotropic or opiate based drug, most likely prescribed or stolen from there mom. maybe they should try smoking pot, they may be able to put together an intelligent sentence then compared to the current attempts.

i don't really feel that governments are the biggest drug dealers,
but i do see them as the biggest enablers for drug manufacturing companies to damage and rip off the public, they are creating multiple addictions by unscrupulous sales techniques and media manipulation to make people think there are new discoveries of human psychological and physiological maladies that there drugs will cure.
why were these so called afflictions or maladies not a problem in the early half of last century?
All Governments on both sides of the fence condone this and enable these companies to make obscene profits from the public without any consequences for the damages and human cost to society as a whole. another glaring example is the alcohol industry. look at the damage it does to society and to families. yet all governments are happily taking the taxes and blaming the users for any problems.
When the USA drug administration and registration board (excuse me if i don't have the correct name of this agency) based there approval of new pharmaceutical drugs on amount of money payed with there application of registration, NOT on proven long term results of the drugs, well you can judge the credibility of these actions yourself, to me they speak loudly.

i have worked around alcohol and drug counseling and disadvantaged youths for over 25 yr now, my comments aren't based on what i read in newspapers and what politicians and fools wish to portray to the masses, but on what i have had to deal with and see on a regular basis for many years

Have a nice day

feed you the BS HAHAHAHHAHAHAHa i can't feed you the amount or kind of BS you have already accepted as fact lol.

why don't you go do some research and get facts before you open your mouth

this doc is worth seeing, in the respect it does present another view of what these legal drug companies are perpetrating against society and how they have insidiously incorporated them into everyday life

Well, the word "harmful" is a little iffy. No one ever ODed on pot, went crazy or turned homicidal maniac on pot. In spite of your belief, it's questionable if it's addictive. It does even have some proven positives, medically speaking, for some conditions. I don't use it, but know many who do that are fully functional, hard working citizens. It's effect on behavior is usually calming,.. instead of soul stealing it seems to lead to soul searching.

Now those other drugs you mentioned,?.. bad news, they're addictive, behavior altering, unpredictable and very destructive. But even so, I don't support the war on drugs, because part of the reason for the destruction is the so called war on drugs.

Let the drug users do their thing! Then the power structure will crumble, because Soon the herd will thin, the profit will drop, the motivation to sell will disappear, and "voila", the remaining drug problems become manageable. We'd end up using taxes for programs that work instead tossing endless funds into the money pit.

Because the war on drugs is futile. It helps creat and prepetuate the very criminal behavior and social climate it claims to control. It's basically just a war on taxes and tax payers.

If a man wants to throw his life away, who are we to stop him by supporting him all his unworking life, sending him to detox facilities at our expense, and ferrying him in and out of jail and thru the system until he dies of OD anyway.

Frankly, I'd rather lend my support and money to help someone who is trying.

Happy New Year Jody and all others

well said and presented points lady, i agree with all your points including supporting those that are trying,
it is criminal what is spent every year worldwide on policing and gaoling pot users and supposed attempts to eradicate a plant that was around before Jesus.

I'm not a user either but i do not witness family violence fueled by pot,
i have witnessed exactly that from many other drugs.

i am a strong supporter and believer of the many medicinal uses of marijuana and the growth n production of hempen products (Industrial Hemp)

Keep Smiling and have a nice day

Now go back to your alcohol .....
In all fairness, you cannot OD on pot, yet drinking to much can put you in a coma. Too much meth, cocaine, and heroin can kill you too. Most potheads know, don't smoke dope when you're stoned, you don't get more stoned, you get lower on dope.
That is the big difference between alcohol/drugs v/s pot.
I would rather share the roads with a pot smoker then a beer guzzler. Pot smokers are usually more cautious and paranoid, drinker don't realize there is a problem.
Just my opinion and don't call me a pot head, my job does random drug testing so I am clean.
