Your same lame responses are getting used over and over entirely too many times. You've used that damn line already before on multiple topix threads. We'll stop whining and sniveling when you stop imitating a broken record........humm, I guess your gonna blabber on about random jobsite company time next. Your BS is getting way too predictable. Skip on......

There you go again assuming that everyone who disagrees with you is a "stoner" destined to live under a bridge. What makes you so sure that I'm not a cop who has seen first hand and witnessed the way our unjust cannabis laws have destroyed lives, torn apart families, and turn neighbors against each other thru the black market and all the crime that it creates? Try getting your head out of your arse. These silly little assumptions and post you make truly shows the type of character you are.

No one is telling you that you can't smoke. The above banter is a typical stoner attempt to justify anywhere/anytime open use witout any restrictions in the workplace or traffic and that is still a long way off in the Bible belt. Light'em up! Just be a man enough to live with the situation it may cause or just go back to whining and sniveling.

and the above banter is from a sick, sadistic, prohibitionist that thrives on government control and laws, that will be whining and sniveling when cannabis is legalized. and don't give us this crap about fed laws and prohibition. Back when alcohol prohibition was repealed, states legalizing alcohol and telling the feds to kiss their ass is what started the domino effect. You're "workplace rules" thing is a farce. Never had to deal with any of that hypocritical crap in my life...fear mongering is all that is....

Most stoners and dopers like you don't have to put up with workplace laws in a company with them because you can't pass the first base test or get a job in one! Enjoy your life flipping burgers,mowing grass,and cleaning pools.

Nice try but we're not totally stupid. Why would you be cleaning pools when they are covered for the winter? DUH!!!! Is there good insurance,paid sick leave,disability benefits,workmans comp, and retirement programs in that business? Kind of goes along with the pay and long term benefits that the summer beach chair rental people get.

Spelling wasn't one of your high points it seems. A stoner with a lack of education will go far in life.

because no one should go to jail over a non violent crime like marijuana. In fact, marijuana is safer than the legal drug alcohol. (the true gateway drug)

I found this great letter from MPP.ORG to support Regulating Marijuana like Alcohol.

I am writing to encourage you to co-sponsor the Ending Federal Marijuana Prohibition Act of 2013 (H.R. 499). The purpose of this bill is to regulate marijuana like alcohol on the federal level. I believe it is a very sensible proposal.

This nation learned long ago that prohibiting a widely used and widely popular substance just doesn't work. It doesn't eliminate use of the substance; it simply ensures that the substance is sold by criminal actors in an underground market.

In many ways, the prohibition of marijuana makes even less sense than the prohibition of alcohol. While the health effects of alcohol cause tens of thousands of deaths annually in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the health effects of marijuana are not cited as a contributing factor in any deaths. In terms of public safety, no one disputes alcohol's association with violent behavior, from domestic abuse to sexual assaults to barroom brawls. Yet the use of marijuana does not produce the same kind of dangerous behavior.

The bottom line is that it doesn't make sense to punish adults who choose to use marijuana instead of alcohol. And these adults should be able to purchase marijuana safely from regulated businesses -- which will generate tax revenues -- rather than in an underground market. It is time to regulate marijuana like alcohol on both the state and federal level.

I hope you agree with me and will co-sponsor H.R. 499.

Southern States now supporting Medical Marijuana:

Found the news report at gacareproject.com

ORML reports on polling: In another sign of the changing times, this past week two new polls have been released demonstrating majority support for allowing the medical use of marijuana in two southern states, a region historically less supportive of cannabis law reforms.

A poll conducted by Public Policy Polling revealed that most North Carolinians believe that a doctor should possess the legal option to authorize marijuana for patients. Support for legalizing medical marijuana is at 58% overall, with 33% opposed and 9% undecided. A majority of every age group under age 65 supports allowing for the medical use of marijuana. The poll surveyed 608 North Carolina voters between January 10 and January 13, 2013.

Another Public Policy Polling survey had the majority of West Virginians supporting the medical use of cannabis, 53% in favor to 40% opposed. Further, when asked which is a safer treatment for debilitating pain: the medical use of marijuana or Oxycontin, 63% responded medical marijuana. You can view more data from this poll here.

You have to be kidding.. The Website that you posted below is trying to sell you a drug counseling program says marijuana causes "Paranoia, hallucinations". Paranoia from the police perhaps.. but other than that ...I don't think so. In the history of mankind, no one has ever died or o.d'ing on marijuana. Unlike the legal (gateway) drug Alcohol which kills thousands every year. Another argument might be that a non violent marijuana user should not go to jail over a non violent crime and spend up all your tax dollars on a failed drug war. Education and taxation is key. Regulate marijuana like alcohol. In fact, regulation does work. It's easier for some kid in high-school to buy marijuana off the black market from the drug cartels than to buy the deadly drug alcohol. This proves regulation does work. Thank you to Mpp.ORG for showing me the truth.

You can call marijuana "natural", but so is opium. I have nothing wrong with taking a few hits here and there just like I have no problem with a few drinks here and there. It is the trash out there that has more than a few and kill people with their stupidity whether it is due to drunk driving or the frying of their brain that too many people are too stupid to see marijuana will eventually do.
I vote "YES!" to legalize all drugs, just tax the sh*t out of them and anyone who kills someone due to the usage gets an instant hanging (same with drunk drivers or anyone who kills someone due to alcohol usage).
