So why are you attempting to force your homosexual agenda down everyone's throat? I could not care less what anyone does in the privacy of their own bedroom. I simply oppose sexual harrassment.

Its going to be interesting to see how the legalization of pot affects the family tourist market for these states that have legalized it.Do families want to go to states where now they have to wonder if a pot head is driving their way just around the corner.

If they can tax the hell out of it and get their union campaign donators in on it, they'll go for anything.

Not true. Bush, McCain and Romney were all moderates. The tea-baggers just made them pretend to be nativist yahoos in the primaries. They like being lied to.
The Republican party always picks a candidate who would prefer to support comprehensive immigration reform.

You're like Al Capone, that is, if he'd been a crazy right-wing internet troll instead of a crime boss and illegal booze distributor...:)

if you had an inkling of American history, you would see that the government is involved in alcohol - forgot prohibition?

Bet you don't even know who wrote prohibition, and why, do you?

Ever see a guy who smoked a joint trying to get in a bar fight, or any fight? maybe a verbal fight over who gets the last Oreo, but thats about it doofus.

How many people died last year from DWI's you imbecile?

I'll help you out,m you fcuking imbecile;

"According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) 32,885 people died in traffic crashes in 2010 in the United States (latest figures available), including an estimated 10,228 people who died in drunk driving crashes, accounting for 31% of all traffic deaths last year."

http://www.centurycouncil.org/drunk-driving/d...

Now, how many people died from marijuana related incidents?

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Marijuana_related_d...

This link begs to differ, but still - according to this release, 279 deaths related to marijuana have been recorded from 1997 to 2005;

According to Freedom of Information requests submitted by the group ProCon.org , from 1997 to 2005 the Food and Drug Administration recorded 279 deaths to which marijuana contributed. 187 of these deaths were listed as being directly related to the use of the cannabis plant itself.

So let's put this in perspective - almost 33,000 people died in the latest study in ONE SINGLE YEAR due to alcohol - but 279 died in a seven year period?

Even you can do this simple math moron!
