You don't have a problem. You can quit anytime you want. That's what we ALL said. But how many really quit? And how many got arrested for VIOLENT crimes?

Your subjective experience and failure to responsibly use a mind altering substance shouldn't mean that other more responsible adults shouldn't have access to it.
My experience wasn't limited to me. It was a GROUP experience. So why did you have my posts deleted then? A little too close to home?

You know what. I really REALLY hope I'm wrong. It's just my experiences shaped me the same way everyone else's shapes them.

One guy was particularly mad at me for quitting. I was actually afraid of what he would do (and I'm not a tiny fellow). Years later I read that he was arrested for molesting his very young daughter.

30 years later I still read about people I hung around with then still getting arrested for that crap. But, once again, this is something I would REALLY like to be wrong about. Because if I'm not, imagine what this country will become...

OK, so you don't associate with the nicest people.

How is that an argument against legal pot?

I know plenty of otherwise law-abiding, financially successful middle class people who like to smoke pot on occassion after the kids go to bed in the privacy of their own homes.

How is that your business? Why should it be the government's business?

Considering that I've been doing it probably since before you were born and will retire a millionaire with no arrest record, yeah, I think I might be OK.

That was then. Today all my friends are successful professionals. And because I am honest about what I've been through I've had my share of people coming to me crying about how their dope addict kids and relatives are making their lives a living hell.

As far as it being my business, if the dope didn't affect others, then fine. But you don't live in a vacuum. Everything you do affects someone else. I'm sure everyone around you loves you. That is, those that are on dope.

Presumptuous a bit, eh?

Let's throw judgmental in there too.

Millions of adults in this country use pot recreationally and responsibly. Sorry that you and your ne'er-do-well associates are not among them.

Are you Hispanic or Latina? That explains your compassion for illegal invaders.
Hey, would you be so helpful if the illegal children were from, say, Africa?

Good for you. But for every one like you (if what you say is true, dope does make people into liars), there are a hundred dopers dependent on others who can't function in the workplace.

I'm sure you polled them all personally and didn't get this "info" from a pro-legalization organization. Go on in your darkness. I hope it doesn't come back on you like it did on me.

<quoted text> I am a real American just like every other AMERICAN born in the country, naturalized or however they got their citizenship, including aliens who served in America's military in order to gain citizenship. You pine for the old days when minorities couldn't vote or maybe you want to go back to when women couldn't vote. Those days are in the past and we are a much greater country for it. I see your bigotry even extends to anyone who disagrees with you. Jesus says to love God and love your neighbors (everyone).
Being born here doesn't make your idea of America accurate. There's a lot of foreigners who laid babies for profit. They raised their anchor babies to bleed America, not love it.
Like I have said many times, my family has been here for over 300 years. If my ideas aren't pro-America, who's is? And, why are my traditional ideas wrong today?
My ideals are based on the America that our forefathers created. How do your immigrated ideas trump that? You don't even appreciate being white so, how can you appropriately defend our forefather's ideals? You can't. You are a wasted white American, who sells his soul for easy comfort. You will not fight for us because it is too much work and thought.I trump you, as an American.

I will make it as simple as I can for you because you are so deceived and darkened by your dope that you have become a dope.

You say you have smoked for years and never got arrested so in YOUR WARPED MIND that makes what you did okay. You are not hurting anyone. You do it in the privacy of your own home. You are swimming in money. That makes it all better.

Well, some people have murdered people for years and never got caught or arrested.
Some people have raped and not been arrested.
Some have tortured people and not been arrested.
And they are all swimming in money.
You think I am being extreme at this point, I'm sure.

But the truth is that you are complicit in the crimes of all those people that got you your dope. You financed their behavior. Everyone they KILLED and RAPED and TORTURED is on YOU because you financed it all just so you could smoke your dope. And all those kids fleeing the violent drug lords and crossing the border is YOUR FAULT.

Years ago a young man asked me to write a letter to a sentencing judge. He was arrested because he had child pornography on his computer (incredibly horrible stuff). He told me "I was only watching stuff on the computer in the privacy of my own home. I'm not guilty of nothing."

My thought was that if it were pictures of MY children on his computer, then he would have had problems of a much more serious nature. However, "I didn't hurt nobody!" was how he justified his criminal actions.

His family ended up losing their successful business that they had for YEARS over his selfish behavior.

But keep lying to yourself. I don't have a problem. I ain't hurtin' nobody. Yet in fact you are financing a world of hurt for some people

If you are PRO-DOPE then you are the REASON all those children are being tortured and massacred and fleeing their countries. Why can you not make that jump in your mind? It's really not a big jump. It's a very obvious very simple truth who is tormenting those kids and what leads to it.
