Thank you for taking the time to post this. I appreciate the factually-supported and intelligent debating you've done here. I especially liked Gupta's article. It seemed to include a complete and unbiased examination. It's frustrating to see your efforts ignored, your facts dismissed without supporting evidence, and unfounded accusations used in place of quality arguments by ignorant people. I'm impressed and disheartened at the same time. So much infrastructure wasted on the criminalization of such a weak drug. It makes me so sad for us.
thanks. if you're an '88 RFA grad i have a bong or 2 older than you! we see here that there will always be those who chime in with one line belches, burps & farts. they spew but never listen. best to ignore and move on i suppose. i post here for anyone who seeks ALL sides of the issue, for those who are open to discovery and enlightenment rather than clinging to outdated nonsense. the demographic of those who support legalization leans toward the younger folks for sure with democrats 2 to 3 times more likely in agreement than repubs. i'm encouraged that younger folks are taking a stand. it's the older people (my age & older) that are most difficult to reach. they've been fed the lies for so long. i've been able to enlighten a good number of friends/acquaintances from my age group. i've seen that "lightbulb" go on when they discover "truth". i try to have at least 1 conversation a day with someone my age who may be on the fence. i am fortunate that my daily life, work, business situation allows for that. i'm not some stereotypical cartoon "hey man stoner" . i own a successful business, a cozy home, drive quality wheels, pay more in taxes than many of my friends gross, love my family, my town and my country. so thanks you again and please share your spot on views wherever/whenever you can and together with others like us help to affect change!

LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) is producing a full length film which I've supported with a monetary contribution. Here's a promo clip...

like I said. I don't smoke (anything) so could care less. I can't remember the last time someone actually went to jail for a plant. The majority of marijuana infractions are misdemeanors which result in a fine. If you think legal pot will be cheap you're an obvious idiot. It's already been stated by Marlboro that they will acquire the mass market on crops. How long before Nicotine and various other chemicals find there way into your legal pot? What do you think will happen to the various excess chemicals that can't be buried in their cigs? they'll go into your legal pot. what may or may not have caused cancer before (just as many sites stating the opposite) will definitely cause it now. This practice does happen, I've been a manufacturing manager for over 25 years. typical idiots that can only think of getting what they want without understanding the consequences. Again, ultimately it doesn't matter to me. I consider it a "thinning of the herd". BTW I do apologize I thought I saw a hightimes link but mustve been mistaken.

I think it's wonderful that they want to legalize weed. I don't smoke it and it's only going to expose undesirables in society. Go ahead smoke up, and just like alcoholics, I'll have better employment opportunities than you, I'll get promotions over you, my kids will be more successful than yours because I won't be dopped up all the time and will be able to be a proper parent. Lol you think this is a great move and just because it's does not change the stigma and the affects this drug carries. Go ahead losers, there will be less of you driving that's for sure, DUI's will be as prevalent as DWI's. Loool you're idiots.
"expose undesirables"? how so? "just like alcoholics"? so everyone who cracks a can of bud is an alcoholic? "better employment"? i've fired closed minded dolts like you. not for their views but because that mindset tends to mask much deeper issues that do interfere with productivity. my kids? you don't want to go there. one holds a juris doctorate, the other a masters degree. both successful beyond my dreams. i wish yours all the best. more DUI's? why? will cannabis users suddenly begin drinking & driving? i certainly don't condone driving while under the influence of anything but the FACT is that cannabis users tend to be safer, drive slower, are less angry, have no road rage, are more patient and therefor overall are LESS likely to be pulled over like the common boozer who's all over the road. does that mean folks should spark up while driving? no, of course not. personal responsibility as with alcohol, prescription drugs, even coffee is a reasonable expectation. accept these truths for what they are, or not... the time's they are a changin'.

Looool you're delusional! Better drivers?? You think doing drugs makes you a better driver?? That statement right there makes me question the validity of your entire post lool. You've got to be kidding me! Besides when is government control over your life ever a good thing? Try letting the government control your health care oh wait that just happened and it's a mess. You pot are acting just like the government wants you too "oh yeab man this is going to be great. We get to toke up man and be high whenever we want" idiots! You'll get comfortable and start smoking it all the time. Those dumb bastards that think they are going to toke up walking down the street or while driving a vehicle, or on a lunch break outside got another thing coming. This is about money, not your well being. This is about control over cost and product and their will ne plenty of laws just waiting for you to break and pay fines. Yeah driving under the influence, going to be huge, for the courts and insurance companies. You're a bunch of dummies supporting this. But hey, I don't smoke, but I am concerned about the amount of control is being taken away from "we the people". And really that's the ONLY reason I oppose it.

the contradictions "idiots" (apropos) and " Conjunction..." demonstrate here are astounding but beneath reply at this point as they clearly both choose ignorance over fact. they embrace unfounded-unsupported rumor and lies over proven truths and education. they invent false, fantasy scenarios then argue against them... it would be funny were it not so sad to know that ancient irrelevant mindsets like those still exist. but since America is now 58% in favor of legalization and that number is growing exponentially, i think it's safe to assume that they will go the way of the prohibitionists movements of yesteryear. nobody even remembers who they were.

Quoting random studies from the Internet does not constitute fact. As I previously mentioned you can find a study to support anything. Remember the studies saying LCD was great for clearing the mind? Your delusional if you believe life will be peachy and perfect. Your close minded views do not make you the great debater you believe yourself to be. Your arguments are no more valid than some moron saying violent TV creates violent behavior in adults. I can also see that theres no point in continuing to argue with someone who believes no matter what they think is right. Topix is where all Rome's highly intelligent debaters go right? I did not argue as to whether or not legalization is right. I simply warned you of the future issues you can expect. I welcome the legalization of all drugs and the employers right to descriminate.

UCLA is hardly a "random" or obscure source of information. I must've missed the LCD study but i have a 60 inch screen on in this room right now and i feel no mind clearing effects. LOL My views may seem closed minded to you but they're based on my own personal quest for truth, absent of believing everything i'm fed without question. I've done my homework. You have not. So you're correct. Debating with you is not fair... to you. So your argument has been reduced to a "prediction" now? Go it. LOL ...and just to lock in your defeat you resort to demonizing this very forum you chose to indulge! So what's that make you? 1 more pill you may now choke on is that the current trend in medical cannabis friendly states is that employers are increasingly NOT including cannabis in their pre-employment drug testing. it's just not an indicator of an employees ability to be a productive worker. sobriety at the workplace is of course demanded as it should be. all other qualifications being equal i'd hire a man who responsibly uses cannabis for relaxation or recreation over one who uses alcohol for the same. i have plenty of company in that regard and will do what i can to educate those capable of comprehension. Gotta go. Big game on the LCD tonight. Go Sox!

I'm not entirely sure what your argument is. Spouting off in nonsensical ramblings means nothing to those of us with above average IQs. I understand you being upset, little boys often get upset when they're talked down to. Your quest for truth should be limited to the question as to why you have nothing else in your life to feel strongly about. I'm assuming your single in your mid 30s and has a relatively strange grasp on weird sexual endeavours. You know what, everything you said is correct Topix king. please enjoy the solidarity of the radioactive glow of your penis replacement TV, while I have sex with something besides my hand.

From Bloomberg Businessweek, Technology Section:
Being a computer coder takes a physical toll. The long hours sitting at a keyboard can cause back and wrist pain. You can run to a pharmacy and pick up some Advil, or if you’re in Silicon Valley, you can drop by the Palliative Health Center for some Sour Diesel. Palliative Health is a medical marijuana dispensary, one of many in San Jose, Calif. Inside, iPads are mounted on pedestals so patients can scroll through and check prices and availability of Sour Diesel, Chem Dog, and a dozen or so other strains. The shop offers marijuana-infused sodas, muffins, and chocolates, and monthly classes on cooking with cannabis.

Around 40 percent of Palliative Health’s clients are tech workers, says Ernie Arreola, 38, the assistant manager.“We’re seeing people from some semiconductors, lots of engineers, lots of programmers,” he says. That makes sense, because the shop is an easy shot from some of the area’s biggest employers—Cisco Systems (CSCO), Google (GOOG), Adobe Systems (ADBE), Apple (AAPL), EBay (EBAY)—and a short drive from dozens more. Also, people in Silicon Valley do like their pot.
