I can think of many examples of Marijuana making kids weird in highschool. And a classmate who was well known for having a marijuana problem who killed himself.

Marijuana is the candy cigarette of drug addiction.

And Jared Loughner displayed a common side effect of marijuana. Paranoid schizophrenia

You can try and defend marijuana like someone working for a big evil tobacco corporation.

Jared Loughner is not the first pothead wack job to kill someone.

I can bet most people in prison are potheads.

The reason that there are "potheads" in prison is because of Unconstitutional laws.
How do you like being considered the "property" of your Gov't?

Saying that because he has used marijuana is the reason that he killed people is like saying that he was exposed to the color red too often or that he ate too many twinkies. You are either a troll, have a reading comprehension problem, or just following the Anti-drug blow-hard bandwagon.

Statistics can be abused, but it can also be done properly. I have searched for more than 35 years a "serious" statistics showing than cannabis leads to any problem, and found almost nothing. It might be that heavy long time smoker could develop some weakness in some articulation, I thought, but even that has not yet been confirmed. The idea of the dangerousness of cannabis comes from the propaganda exclusively. Certainly cannabis is not good for everyone, but anything is not good for everyone. I read a bit more papers "against cannabis" linked by prohibitionists here, and I realize that they are 100% speculation from selective choice of "verifiable facts". That seems quite dishonest.

But without doubt cannabis can be extremely dangerous ... once prohibited. Indeed, even without smoking it, just possessing it, you can loose your job, be sent in jail, be killed, etc.

Cannabis should never have been made illegal. It is pure fear selling. Even war selling. And defense of special interests.

Say what you want, but how can you excuse crazed potheads running around shooting Legislators and Government judges? Isn't it a little more than just chance that Congresswoman Giffords spoke forcefully against the legalization of time and space distorting demon pot?
One usually reliable (non Government controlled) news source quotes one Caitie Parker as having Tweeted:
"he (left wing loon Jared Lee Loughner) was a pot head who was into rock like Hendrix, The Doors, Anti-Flag..."
Source: http://theantiliberalzone.blogspot.com/2011/0...
Even establishment Governmental "news" sources admit "a Jared L. Loughner, having the same date of birth,...(was charged with the criminal offense of)...possession of drug paraphernalia".

Since our post 60s 70s "Liberal" Government fired its first shot to overturn all that is normal and good by beginning its war against decent women and men who smoke tobacco, and, while at the same time, promoting pot usage, Americans have gotten way too up-tight. Unleashing crazed "mentally unstable" potheads onto society is no way to promote "democracy" and the American way.
You describe those decent peaceful folks who advocate peaceful co-existence and comity as being "dishonest, irrational and opportunist". Do you have any positive suggestion that might end this escalating wave of wanton pot related 60s era type violence terrorism?
Ronald
Legalize pot, and you will see that if a pothead kill someone, pot will not even be cited as a plausible factor. Journalist will even not mention the fact. Your extrapolation of possible correlations is incorrect. You just perpetuate the reefer madness propaganda. That does no more work.

Do we really want poeple like Jared Lee Loughner to smoke pot legally? He could already do it illegally. If they legalize pot will convicts have legal access to it? Will the taxpayers be footing the bill for pot smoking in prison?

Jared Loughner displays symptoms of Paranoid schizophrenia, which is a common health side effect of someone who abuses marijuana.
Candy Cigarettes are scientifically more healthy than Marijuana.
Could you be any more uninformed??? I think not.
First of all, the blood is on the hands of anyone who supports cannabis prohibition. Only through prohibition does any violence surround cannabis as it allows cannabis to be monopolized by cartels and the criminal element.
As far as your schizophrenia point, it is NOT a "common side effect" as you would have folks believe. It can, however, perform as a catalyst for those with a pre-disposition to mental illness. This catalyst can be one of a number of things. Paranoid Schizophrenia is not only limited to cannabis users. Matter of fact, they are only a small percentage of those with schizophrenia.
So please, enough of the Reefer Madness type hysteria.

Do convicts get served alcohol while in prison? NO.
So what would make cannabis any different??? Your point is moot and, to an extent, ridiculous.

Obviously poor Len has never heard of medical marijuana and I am sure that every convict feels that they qualify for medical pot.

I can see the liberal Lawyers lining up for this issue.

Good question. How many prisoners are getting prescription drugs in prison today? Are there federal laws that gives them rights to medical treatment? Why don't you get on that. I can't do all your research.

But you are the one making the claim that prisoners would receive medical marijuana, so it is YOUR research.

Sure I've heard of med cannabis, and if the prisons were allowed to distribute, they already would be in the states where med cannabis is already legal.
Where are the "liberal lawyers" lining up??? I've heard of no movement on this.
Once again you are betrayed by your assumptions.

It is far too late for that. Thanks to prohibition the drug cartels have already a bigger budget than Mexico government budget. There is just no other choice than complete legalization of marijuana.
The prohibition of drugs transforms the world into a big Chicago. Prohibition is a success only for the drug bandits. It makes it possible for them to manage anomalous amount of (black) money and to corrupt the politicians and to continue ... prohibition, which is the motor of their business.
We should legalize ALL drugs, and tax them relatively to their (real) damages. People would clearly understand what are the dangerous products, and, as we know today, cannabis, magic mushrooms, and salvia divinorum are much safer alternative to alcohol, tobacco, and crack.
Prohibition is economically, ethically, and medically wrong.
Little to late. The drug cartels already have 20 million soldiers in America. They are illegals. They have invaded many streets. We must ship them all back and end the probition. Then we could convict the worst of the worst of the police officers. This will save the taxpayers billions and make the streets safe again.
