Does Obama being half black and half white also make him half D and half R? Obama is a Leftist, grew up with Socialist idealism and his idea's and his staff reinforce that.

have you seen any "studies" examining a "hippy speedball"???
If it wasn't true, Harvard researchers would not be saying it. Do you think they are just making it up? Do you hang out at a Hospital and ask victims of heart attacks if they smoke pot? That's personal information. http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/2000/03.02/ma...

I never said that it as "good for your heart"\

I only said that your chances of having a heart attack are NOT 5 times as high after you burn.

wed have a pile of dead wreckage from a very danerous drug if those guys were right...

Obama has backed your party off several issues in the middle/right and coopted those ideas for himself.

like O'romneebama care

now he has your party in a tough spot....

they have to change or die...

why just today senetor rand paul called for a path to citizenship, just like S. hannity and R. murdoch did....

those are the smart rethugs...

tacking back to the center is the ONLY thing that will get you more votes....

those from your side, that think nominating a MORE conservative candidate, like gingrich or santorum??

<quoted text>BS...of course it's better then smoking cigarettes, but smoking anything is not good for you. Most people that smoke pot are not occasional and also breath deep holding it in. A lot of those tests you read are not done like that. Check out what the medical field says and not what the advocates say. Because of the lower blood pressure and higher heart rate, researchers found that users' risk for a heart attack is four times higher within the first hour after smoking marijuana, compared to their general risk of heart attack when not smoking. How many people are having heart attacks because of pot but never reported? Marijuana contains more carcinogenic hydrocarbons than tobacco smoke and because marijuana smokers typically inhale deeper and hold the smoke in their lungs longer than tobacco smokers, their lungs are exposed to those carcinogenic properties longer, when smoking.
Research indicates that THC impairs the body's immune system from fighting disease, which can cause a wide variety of health problems. One study found that marijuana actually inhibited the disease-preventing actions of key immune cells. Another study found that THC increased the risk of developing bacterial infections and tumors.
Several studies have found that children born to mothers who used marijuana during pregnancy exhibit some problems with neurological development. According to those studies, prenatal marijuana exposure can cause:
Altered responses to visual stimuli
Increased tremulousness
Problems with sustained attention and memory
I wonder why the poor people that smoke pot have so many kids with add?
Give the references. Up to now, all papers mentioning problems were based on lack of statistical coherence, or pure speculation based on in vitro in vivo extrapolation. I do accept that smoking anything is not recommendable during pregnancy. Nothing here to justify illegality of pot.
Anyway, making a drug illegal augments its consumption, in all cases (with dangerous or non dangerous products).

As they have not yet had their ultra-right wing candidate yet, I donít expect them to learn until they do.

Honestly

Until they get someone like Rick Santorum ( who of course will go down in flames in the general election ) I donít think the far right will actually take stock of the situation.

The GOP is in a tough spot, a large section of their party hates other large groups of people, Minorities ( all of them usually ), women ( subservient sex ), Immigrants ( even legal ones ), and... drum roll.... Liberals ( who are a majority of Americans ), anyone of a religion other than some particular religion.

How do they start reaching out, with out a large segment of their base abandoning them?

to be honest... I have no idea how they will do this.

But I donít think they will face their crisis yet, I think they will lurch right one more time, and actually run a right wing religious nut job and have him go down in a landslide before they actually face their situation.

lol....don't paint the great obama as being in the middle...lol....that is funny.....The only middle is his constant use of loving and protecting the middle class, if he says it enough you fools will believe it.

I tried it for some problems like you, didn't help that much, smoking it gave me heartburn and made my chest hurt, eating it was hard to control the outcome, after reading about what it does to the heart to middle age men, I won't smoke it anymore and most likely will not use it anymore. Not too many people middle age know what condition their heart is, a heart attack can sneak up on anyone. Why take the chance? It's not worth it.

I hope the 2 states will be able to go through with making it legal, it will be a good chance to see how it works. I too think it should be legal. I'm just saying, like drinking booze, it has it's risks. It won't save the world.

I agree, they will be interesting test beds

the older I get ( I wish I would stop that ) the less I drink ( although I have been enjoying a nightcap lately ) and I have no interest whatsoever in pot.

This is going to be interesting to watch

I have an idea, Republicans should agree to raise taxes but only on registered Democrats since you voted for it. You get to pay for it.
