<quoted text> Only uneducated dumbasses call it "Dope." I love idiots like you that shoot off opinions without first educating youselves on the facts. "Dope" is a slang word for heroine derived from the high dopamine content which is the basis of heroine.
Heroin is synthesized by the addition of two acytl groups to the morphine molecule; it is not made from dopamine; Opiates bind to receptors causing the effect.

Marijuana is not without health risks. If you are going to smoke it, inform yourself. Use moderatly. And please allow time for your brains to fully mature before partaking....Kids, take your time in life, there is plenty of time to experience things later...slow down;relax;be kids; anticipate your futures.

It's better for you than many things that are legal. I don't even use, but I'm definitely not against it, nor am I opposed to using one day.

its only illegal because the tree industry and oil corporations were threatened by hemp oil that burns cleaner and get better mileage and hemp paper made from marijuana which doesnt devastate forest and the crops grow back every few months.

[QUOTE who="A.J."]There's no logical reason for it to still be illegal.[/QUOTE]After you get fired at work for failing your drug test, you will get a loooooooong vacation from decent work. States can make SMALL amounts legal to possess and use BUT they can't make companies allow stoners on a jobsite. If you choose to smoke,you will still get a DUI if caught driving and run the chance of getting fired for having it in your system on company time and company premises. If people are still dumb enough to take take that chance,then be prepared to take whatever is dealt out to you plus having that ball and chain on your work record and your driver's record.

NOT scare tactics. Just plain reality of what can happen that stoners want to escape from.

Moonshine is also a product of natural ingredients but the Feds keep locking up the businessmen who make it. The states that legalized MJ for small amounts of possession and consumption still didn't overide the fact that the Feds still classify MJ as a CLASS I narcotic and Federal law overrides state and local laws. Also you can still get fired from your job if you smoke legal MJ and go to work and get caught in a random pee test where there is a zero tolerance drug policy. If you get in an auto accident and the officer suspects use,he can have you taken in for testing and if you're positive,you can be charged with "contributory neglengence"and held partially responsible even though the other guy was 100% at fault. Bottom line is that it may be getting legal to smoke in some places,it's still not legal to have it in your system.

And there are those of you who who had rather escape from reality in smoke than face it with the truth. The jails are full of people that try to use the "I didn't know","it's not fair" or "nobody told me" lame excuses.

ThomasA......you are my hero! I also love to see peoples lives legally destroyed for no apparent reason. It makes my pecker hard! I think that we need to lock more people up in a cage for having a plant on them. Throw away the key and let them rot. Let's be BFF!!!!!!!

For no apparent reason? There are laws against driving under the influence,not paying your taxes,stealing,speeding,making moonshine,and dealing in drugs. When a toad decides not to obey laws on the books, then that's a choice they make and need to man-up to getting caught and take the consequences instead of whining and sniveling about "no apparent reason","it's not fair", "everybodys doing it","I didn't realize...." and all the other lame ass excuses people come up with. If you don't like the laws as they are, work to change them. If you choose not to participate in that change, sit quietly by and take what comes your way.

ThomasA......you are awesome! With views like that you should run for president! I agree with you 110%. We should lock up the lawless S.O.B.'s trying to gain freedom. Who cares about them "stoners" complaining about unjust laws.....lets throw'em in a cage. I love how you say that if I don't like the laws, then work to change them. We should make more laws that destroy lives! Let bring back slavery....hell yeah. While were at it let's also take back womens right to vote, that was a pretty cool law. How about we snatch up more land from them stupid indians, and execute anyone accused of witchcraft. We can burn'em on the stake, just like the good ol' days. We should even go as far as to give England all of their tea back that them law braking bastards threw out into Boston Harbor. ThomasA, you are one swell dude! I absolutely love your views, man!.........PROHIBITION ROCKS!!!

If you're disabled and not in the workplace,have at it. Be sure to refrain from driving with that stuff in your system. Could cause financial problems just like driving drunk if you have an accident and get stuck with a DUI. Peace!

The medicinal use is safer than many of the current options for numerous ailments.

It is good for pain relief from serious ailments no doubt but if you're that sick, you wouldn't be in a workplace or out driving so there would be no problem unless the patient decided to venture out with it still in their system without a doctors release.

People will rally, to have marajuana, legalized, and you're right, with any lame excuse. Including the idea that Marajuana is good for medicinal purposes. It's used for glaucoma, so to make the point, lets add things to the list, that marajuana doesn't serve a purpose for. Name a plant- any plant that doesn't have some type of medicinal value? Long before Merck Pharmacuticals came along, thats what people had, a veriety of plants. Holistic healing [all natural remedies] are just as effective. Merck makes billions of dollars convincing people they will never be cured of depression. Companies like these, what all natural remedies out of business. The point is the next step crosses over to people having their rights violated by the government- including constitutional rights. So people will stand up for the legalization of pot, to the point of being indignant. It's still wrong.

There are "dopeheads" as you call them but there are many medicinal purposes for marijuana. If you were to read medical journals where marijuana was used to treat nausea, pain, to help those who cannot eat or have lost appetite due to chemotherapy, people with HIV/Aids, Fibromyalgia, and many other conditions.
Are those people 'dopeheads'? I think not.
In all actuality marijuana is much less harmful than a person who has beening drinking at a bar and then trying to drive home and threatens to kill those who are on the road too.
<<< a good example of what a dope is! Add to list as many things as possible, so that it sounds right. Used alcohol as an example of how harmful it can be to make marajuana sound less threatening, then state you're opinion that if you don't know anyone thats been harmed by marajuana use then it has to apply to everybody! It's a weak foundation.

This issue will go on forever. There are always two sides to the story. You take the right or the left. By the time I was 30, my parents where killed when i was 6. I buried two husbands. One burnt to death in a fire on our wedding day. Two months later our son died. If I use and don't bother you, then shut up about it. Crime would probably go down. People maybe would be safer. I still work for a living. I guess i have bad luck. but i am not God and cannot judge. I could, but i would be an ass like you two!!!!!!!!!!
