No one should ever go to jail for any cannabis 'offense.' The government needs to butt out of our personal lives!

It's absurd to say recreational use has no value. It's akin to saying recreational drinking has no value. Besides which not all recreational is purely recreational ...stress relief is indirectly medicinal

relax junkies. Legalization is coming. Medical marijuana is paving the way. In the mean time find other ways to ruin your health.

Alright, I won't attack [you] an unarmed person.

Agree or disagree with my opinions, but what have You actually said anywhere on this forum? Anything other than scoffing at my comments?
Even half fried or on a comedown I can still manage to post my views ....albeit a bit stringy, whereas you just post lame attempts at insults

Your posts are nonsensical and I'd rather scoff than debate nonsense. You are wrong that's my opinion.

You opinions are yours and ours belong to us. Agree, disagree, but the need to be so disagreeable and resort to name calling and belittling in an attempt to demean .. well, that may
be your way, and IMO 'that' is wrong.

I stepped in now because I saw you do it and the time just became appropriate to mention it.
Normally we can't help wonder if one posting with proxies in gray boxes also have a profile/sock and therefore we don't pay them much mind especially when they don't know the art of debate.

Has anyone noticed that an ti cannabis morons can never cite any credible scientific evidence to back up their ridiculous assertions? Just self righteous asshattery on their part!

Good morning

So many want to get high in any way they can. The best high I know is
to go 24 hour without sleep.

Hope you are well.

Morning Tehee, hope you're well too.

Without sleep and without drugs... yeah it's a bit like being drunk..... free high :)

But, I love drugs and make no secret of it... that's what the muppets on this forum love me for
