What really concerns me is the number of youth becoming addicted to meth, coke and pills. As the father of teenage girls, who don't do drugs, it concerns me when my daughters tell me about the drug problems many of the kids they grew up with are developing. I have a friend and his daughter is destroying her health with pills. It is sad because I remember what a sweet little girl she was when several of us used to take our girls to the drive-in in Lexington when they were younger
The only reason that marijuana is a gateway drug is because it is illegal. Drug dealers are already committing a crime by selling it, so why would they ID? Drug dealers also often sell other things, and don't discriminate to who they would sell to.

A Columbia University center for drug abuse and addiction study shows that it is easier for kids to get drugs and pills than alcohol.

Regulate it, tax it, and take it out of the hands of the cartels and drug dealers that would sell it to kids. And hammer pill mill doctors, who are the equivellent of herion dealers.(because that's what those pills are, synthetic opioids.)

So if it is legalized you believe there wouldn't be a secondary illegal market still in existence? Because there would still be those who would want to purchase that are not of age or eligible through a dispensary.

No, kids still get alcohol, but it's more difficult for them. I'm not so naive to believe that big government is the answer. I'm sure you think big government will solve all the problem of the world, and all we need is more laws and more government restricting gun ownership to solve gun crime, but the fact of the matter is, criminals don't follow law.

There is a lot of talk about becoming addicted to cannabis.The thing a lot of you do not realize is the fact that all vertebrates have an ENDOCANNABINOID system,that regulates every function in your body.The cannabis plant has nutrients that feed this endocannabinoid system so that we can stay healthy.A lot of people claim that cannabis causes depression.Recent studies now show that this is the depression reoccurring after cessation.In other words they were depressed before they started using,and the cannabis was reliving the depression.Take the time to research the endocannabinoid system and find out just how good this plant is for you.

Hellooo? Where did you go Dude? You once lambasted me; calling me a moron for not reading one of your posts thoroughly. Now I want to know why I should`t call you the same for stating that I believe in big government, and that it can solve our problems as a country? Based on my history of posts here on Topix, I want to know which ones you used to substantiate your opinion. If you are a honorable man you will have the fortitude to reply with an apology as I did to you.

I doubt this arrest had any impact on the marijuana market in Waynesboro. Just changed where a few users will buy.

I know I didn't call you a moron for not reading one of my posts thoroughly. If I called you a moron it's because you called the father of modern capitalism obscure and a socialist.

Your social conservative stance on prohibition is what makes you pro-big government.

"I know I didn't call you a moron for not reading one of my posts thoroughly."

Actually, you did. Because even after admitting that I didn't fully read your post and to whom you were referring, you in your next few posts continued to call me a moron and that I was somehow embarrassing myself. And as far as my "social conservative stance on prohibition" I feel like if someone wants to poison themselves with hard drugs or rely on weed to give them a chemical boost to cope with their day then they should go for it. But when they finally figure out that they are a waste if oxygen or they figure out that they can't hold a job because they are stoned most of the time then they are on their own. No more free rides on the tax payers and if they die shriveled up in a ditch somewhere then so be it. But most of the legalized weed crowd also fit into the group pf people that think the Government should pay for you to try to get clean. Am I wrong about you fitting into that category? Because we live in a country where now it is politically incorrect to let someone sink or swim by their own actions we need to stop as many people as possible from using drugs. And if that's cheaper than the feel good social programs of therapy and understanding. You know; all that b'u.l.l.sh..it that doesn't work.

You can slice it any way you want it. You read my post and called Adam Smith an obscure author and a socialist. It had nothing to do with you "not fully reading through it." Damage control alert!
I don't do drugs because of my security clearance. I've been drug tested since I was a teenager. So, no, I'm not in that category, but I've known people that have casually used marijuana all my life, and because they work in the private sector they make hundreds of thousands more than me. You have preconceived notions that all pot smokers are what you would call the free range democrats from the mall, they're not. I think this policy of "oh help big government", drug war has failed us. It's time to look at alternatives. It's not working. Just like public education is not getting a ROI, neither is this so called drug war.$11B so far this year... and it's April 12. Yeah, I would call that a big government policy.

*worked all their lives in the private sector. I've been private for over a decade now, but still get drug tested because of my security clearance.

"and because they work in the private sector they make hundreds of thousands more than me"

I have many doubts about the above statement. You are telling me that someone with comparable skills and performs basically the same tasks as you during the performance of their job; makes and I quote,(and we are talking personal take home pay)"and because they work in the private sector they make hundreds of thousands more than me."

Are you talking per year? Over a 5, 10, 15 20 year career? I sincerely doubt that this is the case.

Now your following statement is one that I whole heatedly agree with.

I've studied the endoretardinoid system, and have come to the conclusion you have an enlarged one.

Of course you doubt them, because anything out of your stigmatized stereotypes can't be true.(Read between the lines) And yes, we're talking take home pay per year.
