Never inhaled, well good for you. So then why don't you write about things you know about like say, blue blooded predatory perverts of the community with "psychiatric issues" and their sainted mothers. And the ruinous destruction and devastation they cause. Who knows, maybe the sainted mothers are the cause of the predatory perverts "psychiatric issues" and predilections.

"Let me state for the record that I've never smoked pot"

Gotta keep that image pristine.

So now that the govt realizes how futile it may be to clog the court systems, probate, and prisons, OR because "OTHER MEANS OF REVENUE ARE NEEDED," just swing to the other side of the parabola to legalize, commercialize, and tax. See cronyism for details.
I say decriminalize with the exception of smoking marijuana in public or providing to minors.
Leave the people alone for when govt gets involved there is no "free market"
Will we ever learn? Of course not.

If Fukushima goes we'll all be smoking pot. Among other things.

Nothing to see here....

But anyway, perhaps Dr. Michaels has in her bag of propaganda tricks the answer to how a blue blooded spawn of a saint could turn out to be a boogieman in the basement of an elementary school preying on little girls. Perhaps he's the victim of that demon weed, that gateway drug that turns perverts in basements of elementary schools into sexual deviants. Perhaps!

Your point as to using marijuana at a young age and that it conforms your sexual tendencies in one direction or another is well received. In my opinion I believe caffeine is the gateway drug for many.
Of course this all boils down to where do you draw the line on many things in life.
Personal responsibilty and common sense are gone.

Yes, lets demonize the demon weed when there's things like "U.S. Children Misdiagnosed with Bipolar Disorder" and the all important government supported drugging of children with government paid for mind destroying psychotropic drugs poisoning young minds with drugs not suitable for inquisitive young minds. Quieting the normal curious minds of children. And somehow that's legal!

I suppose that is why they are attempting to 'legalize' drugs like marijuana as a sort of compromise to how incapable the govt and corporations already are. That's all they care about, power, contol, and money.

I won't be surprised when the day comes that the government will be endorsing medical marijuana for toddlers snatched from their biological parents. But for now those unfortunates little misfits of dysfunctional parents will have settle for the kindness of government paid psycho-therapists referring the little lunatics to government paid child psychiatrists who will prescribe dangerous psychotropic drugs for their little developing minds. Because somehow that is legal!

Andrea Nuciforo applied for a pot permit to sell marijuana to college kids in Amherst, Massachusetts. Is he using his political connections to open a medical marijuana dispensary? How much money will Nuciforo make off of this venture? Nuciforo wants to run for U.S. Congress in the future.
