For all the progress and understanding your "debate" offers, you may as well be speculating about the weight of Satan's turds. Use the scale in your bathroom- we are all dying to know.

Because of the fragility of a Leftist's ego, anything that threatens it is intolerable and provokes rage. So most Leftist blogs can be summarized in one sentence: "How DARE anybody question what I believe!". Rage and abuse substitute for an appeal to facts and reason

Good for you? They didnít pass a bill forcing you to do anything, they just passed a bill taking away your power to tell others what is good for them.

You have that backwards.

Up to now, there are only evidences that *some* substance in the MJ tar provokes cancer in vitro, none exists for in livo cells. The smoke contains powerfull anti-cancer agent, too.
The idea that second had MJ smoke provoke cancer is premature. In the meantime, there is no problem with forbidding the public smoke. It is also elementary courtesy.
More BS and nonsense. Smoking anything is not good for your lungs. I should have the right to breath smoke free air. people smoking weed often breathe very deeply, and hold the smoke in their lungs for a length of time. This way of smoking allows the carcinogens to have prolonged contact with the cells of the lungs.

marijuana smoke acts as an irritant to the lung tissue, which can cause a cough and an increased production of mucus. The irritants may also prevent the lungs from clearing infectious agents, increasing the frequency of lung infections.

smoking weed drastically increases heart rate by 20 to 100 percent. This increase in heart rate can last up to three hours

Smoking weed also may cause the heart to beat irregularly. Research has shown a definite link between heart disease and smoking marijuana. A study by S Jayanthi and colleagues from the National Institutes of Health on May 13, 2008 in the journal "Molecular Psychiatry" demonstrated the first link between smoking marijuana and heart disease. The researchers tested blood from multiple marijuana users and showed that they had high levels of a protein that is a proven risk factor for heart disease.

Want safe pot, consume it, don't smoke it.

You are starting to repeat yourself- but don't worry, regularity can be seen as a sign of health in aging men. If your contribution is limited to one sentence in summary, it would be " Ladies, don't squeeze the Charmin.
Careful buddy, you still got a little on your chin.

Although I do not partake ( and in fact also drink very little ) I donít see the problem her.
Legalize it, tax it, control it... take the rug out from under the crime lords that control it now.
how much tax will it bring in? anyone can grow it and it will still be cheaper to buy on the streets,therefore the cops will still be busy arresting people selling it illegally on the streets. "control it" ?

it's illegal because you can grow it yourself. Everyone would have it growing and the government won't be able to tax it or make a dime. It's a WEED!

You sound so dumb, that compared to you a person would be better off in a dark room with a bowl of dry oatmeal.
You can't fix stupid. Don't even try, it's like making a gift of your mittens to a man with no arms.

that is why when the legalize it??

people have to be able to grow it as well.

if the federal governemnt someday legalized it??

you can bet that many southern states(and mabey idaho and wyoming, utah) will try to pass their own prohibition laws.....

people still, make their own beer and wine too, so why should this be any difeferent??

Im sitting here jacked up on caffeine, after many bowls of prime fresh, northern califronian MMJ?? and my heart beat isnt 100% faster than it normally would be...both these medications are supposed to increase my heart beat wildly according to you??

and they dont/ more "evidence" that you are in the business of peddling hysteria...

but then again, ive been doing it a long time??

and everybodys nervous system is slightly different.

but I still enjoy debunking your silly arguements when ever I can.

ps: roicaardo, dont feel so bad, or defeated by romneys loss...

you are still right mabey 5 percent of the time....

and that is a better record than most of the tea tards in your class..

you know the teatareded....they can not really decide if they are small government, or big "R"??

vaginal probes?? voter supression, union busting, emergency manegment laws????

are these really the activities, of a party that is "small' on government....

It is just a slogan.

the are Big government when it comes to corporate welfare

and that is about it.

just look at how reluctant any of them are to discuss cutting the defence budget??

they scream and whine about the debt??

but it is only medicare,unemployment ins, and food stamps?, that are negociable??

what craven toadies to corporate power!

now Obama will make them expose themseleves this way,

when they oppose his middle class tax cut....

and you know they will?? because anything obama?? is BAAAAAAD.

so let obama, the master politicain?? back them off even MORE political turf on the feild...

rethugs cant pass a tax cut unless their uber wealthy sponsors are taken care of.

that is what the G.norquist pledge, is ALL about.

not the middle class.

Grow up Grover Norquist, there is NO crying in Politics, P.S. how are your overseas buddies doing Norquist?

Now that the fools running the Republicans nd tea baggers but are not elected officials at all, like Karl Rove and Grover Norquist.

These two DUMB BUNNIES have been running around crying about how they lost.

Norquist Says Obama Portrayed Romney as a Poopy-Head. I would be pointing fingers at someone else if I was on the hook for wasting $300 million dollars.

Colbert warned us about their ill ways.

The media came and covered it for days;

Repubs said "no, we're as pure as a lamb"

We'll fight for you and the 47 percent;

But look at their votes....where did they went?

Seems Mr. Karl Rove won't ever work for another President.
