Teen dies after vehicle carrying 4 others rolls

Maybe part of getting a driver's license for teens should be a trip to the morgue to see the real results of reckless driving. Seeing wrecked cars is helpful, but broken bodies would leave more of an impression.  (May 20, 2007 | post #8)

No jail for Willie Nelson

I call bullshit. Obviously you're part of the "Reefer Madness" generation. Prove what you're saying. I don't smoke pot, but have seen the ill effects of smoking cigarettes and booze firsthand. Have you watched someone die of COPD caused by smoking cigarettes? How about cirrhosis of the liver caused by Jim Beam? Neither one caused by pot, but by the legal drugs nicotine and alcohol. Hospital visits have been covered already. Alcohol kills a lot more people than pot does.  (Apr 27, 2007 | post #24)

Keeping it illegal cannot be justified by anyone either. There is no reason for marijuana to be illegal. We have a legal substance, alcohol, that is much more dangerous and kills more people than marijuana, which is illegal and doesn't kill. Legalize it and be done with it.  (Apr 27, 2007 | post #15)

Some drivers cheat state out of big money

Well, I see that "cheating the children" has already come up. Not everything is about the children.  (Apr 27, 2007 | post #132)

Well, I wondered when "cheating the children" would come up. News flash: not everything is about the children.  (Apr 27, 2007 | post #131)

Oh, please. Pot is a helluva lot less harmful than booze.  (Apr 25, 2007 | post #10)

Lawmakers consider outlawing cigar bars too

You make it sound like 2 packs of cigarettes and 40 cigars are the same. They aren't. If you are talking about full-size cigars, just one can have as much tobacco as a pack of cigarettes. Cigars are wrapped in tobacco and don't have a filter. They also have much higher levels of nicotine than cigarettes....one stogie can have up to 400 mg of nicotine, while your average cigarette has 1-2. If you spend an hour sucking one stogie, you've basically done the same risk-wise as smoking a pack. http://www.cancer. org/docroot/PED/co ntent/PED_10_2X_Ci gar_Smoking.asp http://www.quitsmo kingsupport.com/ci gars.htm  (Apr 21, 2007 | post #50)
