Legalize it & tax it. I don't even smoke (anymore) but I've seen more people get into more trouble with alchohol than Marijuana by a long shot....

I'm against legalizing pot.

If you make healthy choices you won't drink alcohol or use marijuana.

Don't say pot won't hurt you. The jury is still out on that question because the research isn't complete.

Just a few observations I have noticed but not supported by research:
1. Regular pot smokers tend to be lazy and unproductive workers.
2. Potheads seem to have any money and always want to borrow (and usually never pay back) from non smokers so they can buy a "dime bag.
3. Pot smokers tend to gain weight in their mid sections from binge eating fatty foods and having the "munchies"
4. A lot of male pot smokers seem to have Erectile Disfunction and many experiment with homosexuality to compensate for the loss of sensitivity in their organ.

CANABIS IS NOT AN addictive drug like prescribed narcotics ! it can be used to help cancer patients , pain ,not able to eat and a load of other illnesses that will eventually die so WHATS the problem with helping people in their age bracket to use canabis to help them enjoy the food they need to eat and its better then using morphine to ease the pain. educate yourselves by reading the pros and cons and decide for yourself.i respect you people who are against it , we all have to still have to live together

Well there you have it, smoking pot causes homosexuality. All that research that says I was born gay is worthless. I became gay because of pot smoking.

That right there is what got pot to become illegal in the first place.

Can you say that about alcohol drinkers? Yep, many of them are lazy and unproductive. The redneck stereotype.

But do MOST alcohol drinkers or pot smokers fit the stereotype? Nope! Most of each are everyday hard working people. Neither substance is harmful in the least and can be helpful if used correctly.

There is more evidence that alcohol is harmful when abused, than there is that pot is harmful when abused. Few would dispute that.

However, stereotypes die hard. Pot was made the drug of the poor, underclass, and largely minority people back in the early 1900's. Still today, these misconceptions persist. They are slowly leaving as more and more of the "wise old people" are former (or present) pot smokers who know better... and the older folks who don't know better start to die off and no longer get to vote!

I have never smoked anything. I don't want smoke in my lungs. No tobacco smoke and no marijuana smoke either. Smoke is unnatural and dangerous to the soft tissue in the lungs. It is proven to cause emphysema, chronic bronchitis and lung cancer. There are people that never smoked cigarettes but who smoked marijuana who are dying right now from smoking pot.

It is much safer to eat marijuana than smoke it. It can be baked in cakes and casseroles and give you the same pleasant buzz or high while eating. Just follow the same recipe that you normally would but add the marijuana to the cake batter or casserole filling prior to baking. Mix it in well so that it is evenly dispersed in the mixture. I like to chop it very fine so that it isn't recognizable. My guests usually eat all of it and have a wonderful time laughing and frolicking about not realizing what has made them so happy.

When I smoke it I usually get hickups. I guess from holding the smoke in my lungs. It spoils the fun when I get them because sometimes I get nauseated if the hickups don't go away.

I've tried it several times and it didn't affect me. One of my friends who smokes a lot wanted me to try a bong so I did. It filled my lungs with smoke but all it did was make me cough. No buzz, nothing. My friend got wasted but I was stone sober. I guess I am just not affected by marijuana. I get high drinking vodka and bourbon.

This name goes out there to all the uninformed ignorant people who thinks marijuana is bad and or harmful.
Why must people always make assumptions toward people who toke. Can it not be legalized and taxed properly? Can we just burn wout these protestant homos bothering us? If it does, better yet when it does become legalized; people who smoke are not going to just start to bother any of yall, start sucking peckers, or become lazy. People will do what they want regardless bc its human nature. So go have a nice helping of shut the hell up and let us toke.

Friends---
are you bloated and fat from drinking beer after beer trying to get a pleasant buzz on?

Does drinking all that beer cause you to run back and forth to the toilet or back door to take a whiz?

Do you sometimes drink so much beer that you burp and fart loudly?

Do you sometimes think you are Mike Tyson when you drink too much beer and end up getting your ass whooped?

Does you wife or girlfriend refuse to give you any because you tend to fall asleep or pass out before it's over?

Is your beer budget higher than your rent?

Friends if you can answer yes to any or all of these questions I have the perfect solution--Uncle Frank's Doobies. Home grown Canibus bud harvested from our growing fields in Polkton, NC. Carefully rolled in my kitchen by a team of experts. Just one will produce a beautiful high, two will make you feel like you are floating. A pack of 10 in a colorful box is only $12.
