Do you honestly think your area makes up the majority of marijuana in the whole world? There are many many strains and as a plant, it is natural.
Sure, people add stuff to it but not always and in its natural state, it is a natural plant.
Semantics.
Yes the old Cannabis sativa is a natural plant. Nowadays bush buds still are, but not the hydro form which is chocka with chemicals.

True - Anyone can define spirituality.
But atheists are excluded from believing in it. An atheist has no choice but to reduce every observed thing to matter. All things spiritual , by definition transcend matter.
From Amon Ra to Zeus and the hundreds of gods in between - I don't believe in any of them.

Yet that non-belief certainly doesn't exclude me from the sense of awe and wonderment that the religious may feel. All I need do is look up at the night sky and contemplate just how small and insignificant we actually are in the face of the cosmos. No need to resort to the supernatural.

If you're saying that only the religious get to define spirituality, then let's take away the common denominators of awe and wonder.

What does that leave us with?

It leaves us with any one or more of hundreds of gods from Amon Ra to Zeus.

Except that the religious can't demonstrate that their god(s) of choice are for real; all they can do is pretend to know stuff they don't know.

Very true, I really wish people would do more independent research. Sigh.

He was a very intelligent, decent, creative, special guy.

<quoted text>No, in some cases there are monopolies. Private enterprise is the best path. We need more of it, not less. More government stifles free enterprise and destroys incentive.

Every recession and depression have been caused by government.

Every dollar taken from the private economy and put into government is counter productive to the success of the people.
Yet corporations exist just to amass money. That old lie about paying less in taxes so they can hire more people has worn itself out. Pay higher wages so the middle class has more discretionary income is what will help the economy.

You've been had.

I'm not surprised.

I didn't condemn anything, just listed facts. You knew Marijuana was illegal didn't you?
Arguing with me about something you clearly know close to nothing about doesn't make you right. Just makes you yet another christian, slinging shit.
You seem to be catching the shit just fine....

That's not what you said.
Here are some of your "undisputed facts" so far, BlatherToones.
Undisputed fact - You did not exist prior to being expelled from the birth canal.
Unidsputed fact - Evolution is not disputed.
Undisputed fact - There is no paranormal, and nothing spiritual.
Undisputed fact - No god exists.
That's quite a list you have going, BlatherToones.
Can we look forward to more additions? I sure hope so, because your stupidity is entertaining.

"Science cannot tell you if there is or is not a god".
Oops! The physicist disputes your science, Bart Buffoon.
Wonder who we should go with?
You forgot his other fact:

Undisputed fact - DNA didn't exist until it was discovered.

You Christians are definitely the most oppressed majority in history. You definitely have a legitimate complaint about non-Christians treating Christmas like its just another winter holiday. That's definitely a War on Christmas.

Better to be a drunk and rot your insides I suppose.

Didn't know I was a 'stoner', whatever would I do without loving christians telling me all the things I am.

Oregano and parsley are drugs too right? Oh, of course not, the Govt and media that control you haven't told you they are.
