It makes people lethargic and they don't want to work. We have enough of that around here. It should only be used for medicinal purposes not for the general public. Cancer patients yes but only them.

Sounds like that you have used it before and know all about it. Did you have cancer when you consumed it?? Cancer takes control of your body and you do don't feel like working or doing every day life routines. I do not think that you should judge someone unless you have been in their shoes, OK. Please pray for cancer victims that they beat the disease if you have the "guts" to send up a prayer.

I have worked with cancer patients for years Miss Betty. And no I've never smoked pot. Why are you so angry? Is it wrong for me to express my opinion? And as far as prayer is concerned - I couldn't make it in life without prayer. I just hate to see our children having anymore exposure to pot. My daughter is a drug addict and she started by smoking pot when she was 15 years old. It is a gateway drug. She is now in her 40s and is very much addicted to stronger drugs now such as pain killers. So.....as you can see that's why I know what it does to people. So keep you smart remarks to yourself. Maybe you haven't had a child that got started on pot and now is a drug addict. Again, why are you so angry?

because non custodial parents choose to spend their money on marijuana and booze instead of their children. Take a look at the line up when the county has Child Support court!

Then why don't the drug dealers pay their bills and support their children if there is so much money in dealing it? Why aren't they living it up instead of welfare recipients? I bet if you drug tested all the welfare recipients you would get more than half with some drug in their system! I don't know of one single person whom is a fine upstanding citizen and a pot head combined.
An alcoholic will work. A pot head will not and if they do, they have a poor work history and life ethic! I have done the math. I know what I am talking about. It does not matter how much pot costs legal or not, pot heads will spend money on getting high before they will pay their utility bills, rent or buy for their children! Being legal will not talk pot heads into getting their priorities straight! Look at them. They can't even try to have good hygene and most live in filth!

I see by the post numbers that someone on this thread is afraid of the truth and flagged post #14 (my post)for removal , typical of some jerk who can't argue with the truth to just cover it up ! WHAT A COWARD ! "I would guess it was "sick and tired of bs" seeing it was a direct reply to him/her. check the numbers for yourself ! reading your crap you sound like a defacs nazi.

29. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.

these dealers you are talking about are dealers they are users who sell a little to get more. The real dealers live in nice neighborhoods and you don't have a clue about who they are. Also the hygiene and welfare are addicts no matter what the drug, alcohol,pills, pot or meth. Most users are just like social drinkers and know limits, too much of anything will cause problems.

This illusion they portray of the "dirty little drug dealer" is what they want us to believe . the truth is the laws they make only promote the problem on both sides of the law . The ignorance on this issue it astounding !

Then you do not know many of your Dr's, lawyers,teachers,counselors or closest friends true nature hundreds of people write anonymously into medicinal marijuana organizations and voice that if it were not illegal they would support it but because of the "taboo" ignorance they cannot for fear of idiots like you taking their jobs. Pot is a far cry from crack,meth, or even pharmaceuticals! It is a god given natural herb,doesn't have to be smoked may be ingested in several manners but does not make people shitty people! Alcohol has destroyed innumerable lives through addiction yet have you ever met a "strung out" pot head who has to go through withdrawals to recover? NO! you haven't because marijuana is physically impossible to become addicted to. Get your f-ckin facts straight. Sounds like you're looking for someone to blame low income living on.well look in the mirror and on your tv because if we as a nation took compassion on the homeless or the dire need of humanity within our borders we'd fund living quarters and classes for those who cannot instead of sitting in your house bitching,we'd give empty buildings to be used for living instead of sitting empty and condemned because people are unable to "pay" We watch T.v. and support endless accounts of stupidity and moral decay, and wasted money just for entertainment! I bet when your doctor prescribes you medicine you take it because they are "acceptable" yet you don't know what its made of-haven't a clue.a "doctor" said its what you need.You more than likely consume 90% of this genetically altered food that is mass produced today with hundreds of chemicals and will have some disease in old age simply due to diet,yet natures own herb is bad?In Mendocino county CA proctor and gamble (who is a major corp producing everything from soap ,toothpaste,to toilet paper look them up they make damn near everything guarantee at least 40% of your household goods) just purchased 1000's of acres in the emerald triangle for growing marijuana because it can save a country in recession-it IS capable of being distributed wisely. Ignorant people like you have been so long in the dark with the idiocies handed to them by the media and governmental campaigns that you have no idea where the true harm stems from. Whats killing our youth is being pumped into households daily by legit doctors and gov. Meth will make people live in squalor,cocaine will make people live in poverty without notice,heroin will make your honor student a whore but marijuana has been scientifically proven repetitively that it soothes the nerves naturally,it has served as a god send for those dying in agony from cancer treatments because it gives them an appetite when NOTHING else has or will! You seriously think that all those people who are using medicinal marijuana are lying just so they can be lazy pot heads. Go research and read some FACTS for yourself,get educated before you want to blame potheads for poverty and squalor in these hills. Look to doctors and the government (who funds methamphetamine clinics) if you want to blame someone.[
