Well, now...So is arsenic "natural."...Want to
"snort" or otherwise ingest this stuff ???...
An area in NE North Dakota has a wells into a water
strata laden with TOXIC levels of arsenic...
I have not researched whether or not arsenic is a
CUMULATIVE (small amounts build up within body
more rapidly than excreted) poison...
Furthermore, there are foods/vegetables that are
normally healthy,but toxic when ingested in large
Incidentally, are you aware that the LEAVES of RHUBARB are extremely toxic while the stems are not ???...
If its legal to possess and smoke arsenic, then it should be also for cannabis.

@Old Timer
There is nobody that has ever died from smoking marijuana and it is a proven fact that being hi on marijuana does not impair your motor skills and therefore you are fine to drive it is not like alcohol

Taylor, sorry but you couldn't be more wrong. Several unbiased scientific studies have shown decrease reaction times and judgement lapses while under the effects of THC. The only supporters of the argument there is no decrease are those with a vested interest- NORML and other legalize- marijuana groups.

At best the supporters say there is no clear evidence- that statement is far from 'proven fact' you claim exists.

I can only believe the valid reports from institutions I have read. Can you provide a link to a source that shows no difference in reaction time?

Ok- most have us have been there-done that. Weed makes you chill- lazy, you aren't running out looking for a booty call or more,. Liquor horns you up- you want to get laid.
Behind the wheel a weed smoker will more likely fall asleep- a drunk will hit the gas or ignore it.
I'd rather screw a drinker- and hang with a weed smoker. It's 2013- lets move past the BS and let the 429 flag fly!

It would be legal if the congress could see a way to get political graft from its sale. The problem is if the government took the risk out of selling weed that everyone would grow it and cut them out. If it doesn't line there pockets then it won't happen.
That is ridiculous. How many tobacco fields and breweries do you see in peoples back yards, if marijuana were legal it would be more economical to buy it commercially than produce it yourself.

I support the use of all drugs and think we should legalize them all at the same time, so we can get so high.

supreme court justice Stevens said openly that " he thinks pot should be legalized federally and he draws no distinction between it and alcohol" I do however ,I think alcohol is much worst !

It is stronger and more addictive than years ago. It kills brain cells in which your body does not replace. Why would any intelligent person want to inhale toxic {hydrogen cyanide} chemicals into their body.

Medical Marijuana is a very viable and important MEDICATION, it is not a recreational drug, there should be no such thing, Slippery slope I don't want out there
