surgery is always the last option....as someone into alternative medicine...
im sure you can understand that one.
if you cant??
then your a crusty old man who is OUTA touch with current trends.
that is obvious with your bigoted stance on gay marriage.
no one has EVER presented a cohearant arguement on why gays shouldnt marry.
A slip disk heals in 2 years or you need surgery. Smoking pot won't cure it fool. How old am I? I'm not old, but I have respect for elder folks. Even gays get old. Is that your best hate speech calling a person you have no idea the age "old"...lol

Hunty,
My size indicates that as a MAN--a BIG, 100%, hairy ass, knuckle draggin' MAN--I am NOT ashamed of being referred to as a sissy!
What I find fascinating is your attempts to stir up some shizz between telegraph hemp and me.
You're very dogged aren't you?
I have no beef with T.H.
You're chasing after the wrong cha-cha heels on this one.
SNAP!
You are a sissy because you make a statement then back down when another gay person, a pothead says comparing gay lifestyle to animals is bigot language. Did you make a mistake saying that? Or did another gay man make you back down? no pun intended.

OK, I am done with you.
We can continue our conversation when you learn how to present your arguments in complete sentences, with at least the slightest attempt at proper grammar, and perhaps with a little coherence.
Until then, you simply sound like an uneducated fool, and there is no purpose to our discourse.
Well said, Hemp is proof that we need to take a further look into making pot illegal.

Not true.

who's opinion matter's- unlike yours- explained it to you.
"Plaintiffs cite Loving for the proposition that a statute can discriminate even if it treats both classes identically. This misconstrues the Loving analysis because the antimiscegenation statute did not treat blacks and whites identically—it restricted who whites could marry (but did not restrict intermarriage between non-whites) for the purpose of promoting white supremacy. Virginia's antimiscegenation statute was the quintessential example of invidious racial discrimination as it was intended to advantage one race and disadvantage all others, which is why the Supreme Court applied strict scrutiny and struck it down as violating the core interest of the Equal Protection Clause.
In contrast, neither men nor women are disproportionately disadvantaged or burdened by the fact that New York's Domestic Relations Law allows only opposite-sex couples to marry—both genders are treated precisely the same way.
They are now. Gay marriage is allowed in NY. Try to keep up, stupid.
akpilot wrote:
As such, there is no gender [*16]classification triggering intermediate scrutiny.
Nor does the statutory scheme create a classification based on sexual orientation. In this respect, the Domestic Relations Law is facially neutral: individuals who seek marriage licenses are not queried concerning their sexual orientation and are not precluded from marrying if they are not heterosexual. Regardless of sexual orientation, any person can marry a person of the opposite sex. "- Hernandez v Robles
You really should get your GED before you attempt to interpret the law Rose.

Yes. I agree. Not mentioning any names, of course, but anyone who "believes" the currently prevailing myth that the founding fathers had anything to do with the Republican's infamous 14th Amendment that did so much damage to the nation when high paid agenda driven Government judges departed from the Constitution to inflict their "Brown" dictate - as well as fostering the preposterous notion of Homosexual "marriage" - should take a beginning course in the Constitution. We dog lovers, though, can take heart knowing that we are next.

Bigfoot, if it were just about government benefits, gay people would just marry someone of the opposite sex. So, it should be clear, even to a dummy like you, that it's not just about government benefits.

POT is illegal.....if you dont have a doctors recommendation.

it has been decriminalized in some some states, so that you wont get trouble for a small amount.

further criminalizing drugs will not work...prohibition hasnt worked from the start.. the proof is that weed is more popular and availible than ever.....

wait, I thought you wanted marijuana made legal??

because you thought the whole medical thing was a guise for people to get high...??

you lieterally change your opinion according to who you are talking to.

no moring at all!!

Well hay oh great ignorant one! Maybe you should educate yourself on the medicinal and medical properties of Cannabis! There are many legitimate uses for Pot and it can be of great help to those who are suffering from medical conditions like Cancer, glaucoma,and really to many others to name in a post! It also helps immensely in cancer patients going through chemo and radiation therapy who have no appetites where pot helps stimulate! Many people who suffer from chronic pain use it also and again it is of great help to them,so don't judge!You sound like a very bitter whatever but maybe like I said do a little reading on the subject before you spout off like this! The answer is NO we need to look into the further uses of Pot as a medicinal thing! The honest truth is that it's a lot less harmful than alcohol is and doesn't do the damage that alcohol does! Ban pot? How did trying to ban alcohol work out for the country? You sound as I said like a bitter uneducated fool!

Yes. My African and non-African Homosexual friends often tell me they observe Homosexual behavior in the animal kind. Take my honey, Bowser, for example. Not only does he love me, but I consider him to be my best and most faithful friend as well.
