Yes, they are so stupid that they abuse prescription meds that are already legal.

I didn't know til recently you could melt and shoot or crush and snort a lot of these "codone" type pills, but apparently it's been going on for a long time. They're bad enough just taking them. I think if pot were legal we wouldn't be having all this abuse of prescription medication.

I do not use pot nor do I advocate it. But, when the argument against its legalization for medicinal purposes shift towards "abuse," I gently ask if there are any prescription meds that are currently legal that never get abused.

A nurse told me a few days ago that some people abuse synthroid (Thyroid hormone treatments for those of us that suffer thyroid disorders) because they think if will speed up their metabolism and they will lose weight!

Aiken legislatures like bill Taylor who can't seem to do anything should get this proposal put on the November ballot so sc voters can decide before all the potential tax revenue goes to ga and fl like what happened with the lottery. Do something bill Taylor and Tom young.

Need the tax revenue and spend too much money and time enforcing its illegal use. A majority of voters have used this drug illegally. It's use is a social norm for a majority of sc citizens just as alcohol use is.

Very interesting.... I found this info on another thread and thought it should be shared:

Before marijuana prohibition began in the late 1930's many people, including some of our nations leaders grew cannabis for a variety of reasons. It’s fairly well known that cannabis has thousands of industrial uses, and has been grown for thousands of years. While simply growing cannabis is far from proof that someone smoked it, there is still evidence showing many would-be U.S Presidents enjoyed it for recreational and medicinal uses.

George Washington routinely smoked marijuana to alleviate the pain from his ailing teeth. Washington’s diary recounts his efforts to better cultivate and enhance his crops of marijuana.

Thomas Jefferson grew cannabis on his plantation and smuggled Chinese hemp seeds to America. He also is believed to have given special smoking blends out as personal gifts which is why he makes the list.

James Madison once remarked that hemp gave him insight to create a new and democratic nation.

James Monroe began smoking it as Ambassador to France & continued to the age of 73.

Andrew Jackson has been documented to have smoked cannabis and tobacco cigars along with the troops he led.

Zachary Taylor like Andrew Jackson, Taylor is said to have smoked with his troops in one or more of the many wars he was in.

Franklin Pierce continued a popular theme of the era. Pierce also smoked with his troops as a general in the Mexican-American War. In a letter to his family, he says cannabis is “about the only good thing” in the war.

Abraham Lincoln quotes (real and fake) about Lincoln enjoying hemp are all over the internet. While some debate if Lincoln sparked up, many resources point to yes.

John F. Kennedy's close acquaintances say Kennedy used cannabis regularly to control his back pain (even during his term) and actually planned on legalizing marijuana during his second term.

Jimmy Carter, along with his efforts to legalize marijuana, also hosted many marijuana smoke filled events at the White House. This leads most to assume Carter at least tried it at some point in life.

George W. Bush publicly refused to answer the marijuana question. He was later caught saying he refused to talk about it “because I don’t want some little kid doing what I tried”.

Bill Clinton famously stated that he smoked but “didn’t inhale”. He has been known to bend the truth every now and then, so he still makes the list.

Barack Obama has joked off many American’s wishes to legalize marijuana. Obama has been very open with his own marijuana smoking in the past, once saying “I inhaled frequently. That was the point”.

Here's some other pot smokers that you might be familiar with that were not presidents, but they were cool enough to admit to it: Steve Jobs, Michael Phelps, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner, Montel Williams, Stephen King, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Oliver Stone, Barbra Streisand, Justin Timberlake, Willie Nelson..........and the list goes on and on. I would be here forever trying to name the 42% of Americans who admitted to smoking marijuana. I hope this helps you to understand that EVERYONE who smokes cannabis is a burnt out piece of trash and needs to be locked up in a cage.

You should go to Wal-mart and buy a "bottle of death" commonly known as aspirin for six dollars and swallow them all. It's legal to do so.
