I was thinking the same thing about all those 'scientific' studies railing on about the evils of cannabis, funded by Phizer and Anheiser-Busch and the U.S. govrment.
Also, let's not forget those poor chimpanzees who were suffocated with thos gas masks while being pumped full of pot smoke. The poor things died just so our honorable government could show how deadly cannabis was. If that were true, then very few of my old school buddies would have died a long time ago.

Funny how people still believe that with zero real-world evidence other than someone told them. Or their preachers railed against it in some self-agrandizing sermon.

Yes, proving the obvious to idiots, that chimpanzees die of smoke inhalation also.
I knew some super-stoners in HS. Most of them were content to live a relaxed, drama-free life, and not rock the boat.
I also knew some hell-bent rockers, determines to flip the world upside down.
Cannabis didn't give them these people their personality types. They didn't change, for better or worse, after discovering the 'evil weed'. But all grew into adulthood. No arrested development. Memory loss is a myth. Alcohol erases entire days and weeks. Cannabis might make you forget whether you ate 4 or 5 slices of pizza last night.

Thomas, you stopped just short of saying it. Topix readers are too stupid to decide for themselves, and need you to protect them from themselves, and represent the general public in that respect. Go on. Say it, Thomas. Get it off your chest. You will feel so liberated after you admit it.
Bow down to the wisdom of Thomas. So wise, he alone knows what is best for us. So knowledgable, no one is even qualified to agree with him, much less disagree.
Uncommon, you haven't had opportunity to stand toe-to-toe with these old men. It isn't worth it. There is no honor in it. I understand your frustration with hard-headed old farts who made up their mind on a subject a long time ago. No need to hasten their demise. Be patient. Sweeping changes are making history as we type.
Guess what? I'm a stubborn old fart too.

Well blow me down;

Here's another toilet paper poll from "Law Officer."

64% of law enforcement officers believe that MJ laws need to be relaxed in some form. Ideas vary, but concensus is building.

Yeah hah!!!! LEAP has as much credibility as the LEAEMR, The Law Enforcement Against Enforcing Moonshine Rules . It's turned into a game of who can bribe the locals for open distribution of drugs, pot , backroom card game houses, slot machines in "Fraternal Clubs"and moonshine so while the B I G smokescreen shows up for the public on top,, the business goes on as usual below ground. You can't stop it, I can't stop it, and if you appear to be a rock in the gears, you will dealt with in the underground way. Don't invite an untimely future "accident" by their method of enforcement. You think our present system of government protection is not to your liking so maybe sampling the other side will help you decide which is best.

Yeah, the good ole days of walking barefoot down a dirt road to joe bobs' shack for a quart mason jar of hooch.
That is getting pretty far out there, comparing the smart cops to mafia collection agents.'Pay your marijuana tax or we'll breaka you kneecaps!' Hoot hoot!

The officers have a LOT of individual discretion as to what they can do and don't have to do in the cases of drunk or stoned people they encounter so there is a relaxation of the laws. SO MUCH has to do with the attitude of the people involved in the situation. If the kids or adults want to confront the officer with a bunch of stupid BS, then it's game on. If those same people cooperate and admit the situation and seek a solution the officers will work with them. I've raised kids and went through growing pains but my kids were drilled with the concrete fact that the officer on scene was the deciding factor as to whether you were just out of line or a threat to the public and needed to go "downtown". It's humiliating to have to pour your beer in the gutter or empty your baggie into the wind but SMART INFORMED people will settle for that. Yes officer, No officer, Thank you officer. If the truth were known, the police don't want to go through the paperwork required to bust people for infractions but if you give them lip service, you've met your match.

If marijuana is legalized for medical use in TN, does that mean that Tennncare will pay for it? If so I so NO to leagalizing it.....

You don't want Tenncare to pay for a medicine that allows epileptic kids a normal life, because you don't want your tax dollars paying for that nasty weed. That logic makes perfect sense to you, doen't it?
Everything you 'know' about cannabis is a lie.

Reading through these news rap-sheets, I could not find where any formal drug charges were brought.

Child molestation is a very sick crime and should be punnished severely. However, this is somewhat off-topic for this thread.

I think you responded to the wrong thread, Zebo.
But that reminds me, I know this dude that gets on the internet and pretends to be a young girl. He lures these dudes to a meeting, and beats them brutally. So far, none of his 'victims' have called the cops.
Way off topic, I know. But you brought up the subject.

That's funny, I responded to a post from a user claiming a connection between canabis usage and a range of child molestation cases.

That post doesn't seem to exist anymore.

I wonder if these 'people' are deterred from their predatory behavior, even for a little bit. I bet they think twice before they try it again.
I went to a narc-anon meeting the other day. Just for fun, I got up and introduced myself, and admitted I am addicted to weed. I almost got lynched by a bunch of real angry addicts who didn't wan't to hear that. They were pissed that I thought I had a problem because I can't pass ThomasAs' drug test. Boo hoo, they told me. Come back when you sell your baby or steal from a stranger at gunpoint for a bag of weed, they told me.
So much hate.
