What's next?

"People are going to smoke pot, so let's make it legal." That's some stupid arguement.

"People are going to buy liquor for underage kids, so lets make it legal."

"People are going to run stop signs, so make it legal."

"People are going to shop-lift, so make it legal."

"People are killing people in JC, so make it legal."

What this country full of laxidasical workers need is another reason to lay around on the couch and watch Cartoon Network.

Well I think they should outlaw liquor. I don't smoke pot nor do I drink, but from what I have seen liquor makes alot of ppl crazy, where is pot makes them mellow.. Look at all the ppl on script drugs, just legal drug addicts.. I have a friend who was going thru chemo, smoked pot all through her treatment and made life easier for her, oh yeah it was her Drs idea she do this.. Pot helps with alot of different illnesses, can you say that for booze?

If it was legalized and taxed, it would heal all of the City, State, and Federal budget problems.

Keep all the mexicans from having a reason to come across our border and sell, criminalize alcohol and legalize pot. anyone can get it anyway if they wanted to and pay americans. support americas people not illigals selling the illegal product. cigareets are probably worse than pot

What states have already decriminalized it.. I had a friend come from cali a few weeks ago and he had a license to possess 25 plants or under 5 lbs (in Cali) Kansas will probably be the last state to catch on.

I dont like marijuana in JC. It attracts nasty and horrible people to JC. It causes tooo many problems. If it becomes legal those same ppl will want to legalize the next drug or something else. If you cant have it you want it more and ppl fight just to fight to prove a point. Its rediculus that ppl fight for stuid things like this just to satisfy their ego!

You say "some" have died directly from "cannabis" and you post a link and the first line is "A WELSHMAN is "thought" to have become the first in Britain to die directly from cannabis poisoning." Do really believe this evidence of a death caused by cannabis? If so your parents never taught you any critical thinking skills, what so ever. If this was even half true do not think an event of this magnitude would go by unnoticed. Do you not think it would be on the front of the NY Times or on any local news channel? With your logic I have proven big foot here is the link:

I can not even type this story into Google and find it. Hell for all I know you typed this thing up your self. Yea SO WHAT, when you get behind the wheel of a motor vehicle intoxicated, things happen. Its the pavement you are hitting at 50 mph that is killing you not the "cannabis" you idiot.(That is called common since) It takes 40,000 thousand times the amount to get you high for it to become lethal. Here it is again "DID YOUR PARENTS EVER TELL YOU IF YOU DO NOT KNOW THE ANSWER TO KEEP YOUR DAMN MOUTH SHUT!!!!" This what you call a "real" link!!

I guess you are too stoned to know what you're talking about either... canadis? what the hell is that? Do you perhaps mean "cannabis"? Cannabis Sativa or a mix of different types of cannabis? If you are going to comment on people's issues, at least make an effort to know what the hell you are saying first.

Why thanks rob I appreciate your concerns, but the miss spelling of a word in my first post does not change the validity of my argument. As you may have noticed in my second post the word is spelled correctly. Even with you level of intelligence you were still able to understand what the word was in the first place. Good Job. YEA!!!

Go smoke another bowl and watch more cartoon network, NP.

You're an idiot and a pot-head. The long term effects of THC consumption have addled your cognitive reasoning skills. Probably why you still cling to that diswhashing job at Dennys.

Standards for pot smokers:
Drop out of school.
Live at moms house.
Work "under the table" to save that precious tax money for more pot.
Hold on to that dead-end job because you don't have to "THINK".
Get real creative while high, but too hung up on the buzz to put anything into motion.
Spend most of your time hunting for who's "holding".
Drive a P.O.S.
Date another greasy pot-head.
Spend most of your time with other, do-nothing dopers.

You'll deny it, but you know I have hit the nail smack on the head.

You'r a real winner, NP.

Thomas Geller, MD, Associate Professor of Child Neurology at the Saint Louis University Health Sciences Center, et al., wrote in their article:

"Cerebellar Infarction in Adolescent Males Associated with Acute Marijuana Use," published in Pediatrics in Apr. 2004:

"Each of the 3 cannabis-associated cases of cerebellar infarction was confirmed by biopsy (1 case) or necropsy (2 cases)... Brainstem compromise caused by cerebellar and cerebral edema led to death in the 2 fatal cases."

Liliana Bachs, MD, Senior Medical Officer at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, et al., wrote in their article:

"Acute Cardiovascular Fatalities Following Cannabis Use," published by Forensic Science International in 2001:

"Cannabis is generally considered to be a drug with very low toxicity. In this paper, we report six cases where recent cannabis intake was associated with sudden and unexpected death. An acute cardiovascular event was the probable cause of death. In all cases, cannabis intake was documented by blood analysis."

Liliana Bachs, MD, Senior Medical Officer at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, wrote in a Nov. 28, 2005 email to ProCon.org :

"Causality is a difficult assessment in forensic toxicology. It is often an 'exclusion diagnosis,' and so it is in our cases. I'm therefore not sure about how to classify those deaths.
At the time I published that study [see above] I would probably not classify [the cannabis] as primary causation because it was not broadly accepted that [a death from cannabis] could occur at all. Today I see reports coming all the time that acknowledge cannabis cardiovascular risks, and the situation may be different."

The Institute of Medicine published in its Mar. 1999 report titled "Marijuana and Medicine:

Assessing the Science Base":
"The cardiovascular changes [from marijuana use] have not posed a health problem for healthy, young users of marijuana or THC. However, such changes in heart rate and blood pressure could present a serious problem for older patients, especially those with coronary arterial or cerebrovascular disease.
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading causes of death in the United States (coronary heart disease is first; stroke is third), so any effect of marijuana use on cardiovascular disease could have a substantial impact on public health. The magnitude of the impact remains to be determined as chronic marijuana users from the late 1960s enter the age when coronary arterial and cerebrovascular diseases become common.
Smoking marijuana is also known to decrease maximal exercise performance. That, with the increased heart rate, could theoretically induce angina, so, this raises the possibility that patients with symptomatic coronary artery disease should be advised not to smoke marijuana, and THC might be contraindicated in patients with restricted cardiovascular function."

But you probably know more than the research scientists. You might learn something if you put down the pot pipe and did a little reasearch outside of Google.

After all, you're a smart stoner...right?
