The claim that if the government doesn't 'require' apple trees to bear fruit, then it is discrimination not to call walnut trees apple trees too!
Smile.
Yeah.... we've all seen a walnut tree hanging apples. Sober up.

If the reason a gay person marries a straight person is to stay in the closet, they propably do not tell their wife they are gay.
Do they love their wives? If both parties are aware, does it matter?
Lesbians who marry straight men may not yet realize that they are lesbians. Girls are condition at an early age to look forward to marriage and children. They often marry for the wedding, and to please their parents.
Does that work in reverse? Are there lesbians who may not know they're straight? Anne Heche? Chirlane McCray?

It makes you look simpleminded when you say Same Sex Couples cannot have sex.
No, just accurate. Just ask Bill Clinton. What form of birth control do same sex couples use?

I'm a lesbian and for birth control I use Kimare's personality. Come to think of it, his personality is a total lists-blocker.

Food isn't just for nutrition either. There's sex, also, know as coital sexual intercourse, which an opposite sex couple engages in, and there is other sexual activity. A SSC is sexual with each other, they cannot have sex, by design definition.
Would it be masturbation if I told you to go fxck yourself?:o)

Hmm, interesting question. The impulse answer would seem to be that more people would use marijuana because of its legal status. This would seem to be confirmed by the numbers coming out of Colorado in regards to college students where it is claimed that the numbers have climbed drastically. But is all what it seems to be on the surface when we dig a bit deeper? Are there in fact an increased number of users, or are the users simply more open about the usage since it is now legal?
Now I don't agree completely with your analogy to prohibition of alcohol, I don't think the law lead to an increase in usage, it simply didn't result in a decrease. And there is certainly no doubt that organized crime received a boost thanks to the Amendment.
I doubt there has been an increase in the number of actual users in college. What might happen is that some people will relocate in states that legalise it. For people who've settled down with families and careers this isn't easy. But for those in college...

I didn't claim there was an increase in alcohol use with prohibition. What actually happened was an initial decrease due to a lack of supply. You can't drink what doesn't exist. Once the infrastructure was in place, the party was back on with pretty much the same consumption. What happened, in the negative column, was that people died due to poorly brewed hooch (toxins like lead) and mixed drinks emerged so people could choke down inferior bathtub rotgut gin. Then there was the criminal activity associated with territory ownership and distribution. Just like we see with drugs these days. Make it legal and tax it. Win win all around. No change in consumption, revenue for the tax man, quality product produced by non-black market producers. Have a look at the stuff being sold in Amsterdam as well as some of the CA market with prescription cannabis.

Did you know that the reason cannabis was demonised was for paper and rope products? The pulp wood industry and the nylon industry didn't want the competition. Thank Hearst and DuPont.

Smile.
Should the apple tree not bearing fruit be cut into fire wood? What about a tree that bares both fruit and nuts? Should it be eradicated?

Interstate 101 at the rest-area stop near Gaviota. You'll find the repubs lined up at the guys restroom at the stalls with the holes cut into the walls.

As to the other questions?

Do they love their wives? If both parties are aware, does it matter?
