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.

No.

Christmas is called "Christmas".

Saturnalia was called "Saturnalia".

I'm wondering if anyone still celebrates Saturnalia.
Yeah, you do. It's called something different now, christmas.

Marijuana's illegal, too.

Plus it clearly qualifies as a drug, especially in the enhanced form you can get it today.

There's nothing natural about pot's THC levels anymore
I know it's still illegal in places and never said it wasn't. Just said it's not a drug. It's not addictive. It doesn't kill.

You didn't read my post did you?

I'm not inexperienced with drugs and the people that are addicted to them.

Wanna hear a sad story?

I was TDY at Ft Gordon, GA in the mid-70's. I went home on leave to Ft, Huachuca, AZ, which is about 1900 miles away. There was good pot very cheap available in AZ. Had this lovely green stuff that cost $10, that's ten, a baggie. More than an ounce, almost the whole baggie.

I drove back to GA with two of them. I get to the turn to the front gate of the post and I see the drug dogs at the guard post.

Holy fucking shit!!

I decide not to enter at that time and went on down the road until I hit a stretch with no development and very light traffic. I pull off, open the passenger window, and chunk my stash out the window and into the high weeds, then drive off. Almost crying. But better than getting caught with a few ounces of pot back in that time, especially on a military installation.

There is no doubt in my mind there was a very, very happy prison road gang member that found it later. A nice fully stuffed leather tobacco pouch with papers.

Sniff...still brings tears to my eyes.
That is sad, especially the part before the story.

Correct.

The only place 'Christ's Mass' is celebrated is in Catholic Churches. Protestants celebrate Saturnalia and a host of other Pagan Mid-Winter rituals and call it "Christmas" wich is essentially a nonsense word. They could have called it "Gylfrizz Day" for as much as it has to do with Jesus/Christ.

Huh...
Take a marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers together in the right quantities, toast them, now you no longer have a marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers.
You have s'mores.
That used to be a marshmallow, chocolate and graham crackers.
Things change, Ben.
I thought you knew.
The only thing that changed was the amount of thermal energy applied to each component. They're still marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers.

Two opinions:

1. Various countries legalise the use of certain drugs - but few legalise supply. So users must buy from criminals. That's just not well thought out.

2. Abstinence is often stultifyingly simplistic. Churches that enforce abstinence have a lot of teenage pregnancies, and a lot of abuse cases. Prohibition was a total f**k up. People need to sit down and discuss the pros and cons of legalising drugs. This is coming from someone that only drinks wine and beer - my only self interest is in making places I want to visit in Central and South America a little bit safer, and hitting the heroin based finances of the Taliban and their ilk.

Yes, "gods" were replaced by the magnificence of "Nature" that produced wondrous creatures such as ourselves. Out of nothing.
You see, nothing can exist until we say it does.
It's called a god substitute.
You can't behold the beauty of a landscape or a spiritual feeling unless you have something to ascribe it to. Unless you were a totally materialistic creature exploiting whatever it can find. That would be true evolution from randomness. It would all be about the exploiting. No "morality" or spirituality to mess it up.
Yahweh, Zeus, Sagan, Dawkins. Oy, they are all the same.
.. isn't it the other way around? Didn't pagans originally worship nature, not a god ??..

.. consider the Mayan culture; their total absorption in cosmology ..

.. many scholars think the priesthood perverted man's worship of nature in a successful bid for control and power. The natural became the supernatural ..
