No...It is based on what I hear and read most righters say and post. I mean you tippy toe on the line yourself...You cut people and slur those who use or support drugs being legal...You do say you dont care,but at same time you say it with a written sneer.

To me the biggest supporters for making marijuana legal and decriminalize other drugs should be conservative....It would save hundred of billions a year and mean peoples freedom to choose to do drugs or not.

You see I voted for Ron Paul the last two Presidential races...We need TRUE REAL conservative values not the fascist controling rleigous crap we have from so called conservatives now. BARRY GOLDWATER CONSERVATIVES IS WHAT THE GOP NEEDS.

You know zero about alcoholism, some alcoholics are so addicted that if they suddenly stop it will kill them. I have seen alcoholics who after years of abstinence thought they could take just one drink of hard liquor and after doing so it was Katie bar the door nothing stopping them and they were back in the gutter again.
You couldn't be more wrong. Three men in my family are alcoholics, two, thankfully, no longer drinking. The third started again after twenty one years of sobriety and promptly ended up right where he started. He thought he would just have himself a night out.
A second cousin, a lifelong alcholic, drank himself into a coma and died at the age of 64.
Sugar shock...or alcohol induced diabetic shock, stated right on his death certificate under cause of death.
Conversely, sugar is also what can kill an alcoholic who stops cold turkey and what induces sugar cravings in those who quit.
Believe me, I know all about it and quit drinking myself by the age of twenty exactly because of my family history. I started at eleven and could drink anyone under a table with little or no ill affect. I was in my forties before I started having an occasional glass of wine without fear of my old, compulsive, drink yourself into a stupor impulse.
None of this negates the fact that alchohol, on its own, is not an addictive substance. Years of abusing it mess with the bodies sugar levels and ability to break sugar down, which no mammals are actually designed to do.

Well, you can dream and scheme all you want, but enhaling any foreign substance in to your lungs and body can't be good for it. How many people die of smoke inhalation a year. When you weaken your lungs, you weaken your body. Prove me wrong if you can.
