I believe marijuana to be a harmless plant.

It does make you high, but not incompetent.

Marijuanas legal status is based on racial slander as opposed to scientific fact.

There are no deaths related to marijuana overdose.

Marijuana is no more of a gateway drug than cigarettes and beer if they were put on the black market.

Hemp is a great natural resource.

Marijuana is found to have more medicinal purposes than various pharmaceuticals and with less side effects.

Marijuana costs no more than a pack of cigarettes to manufacture. A pack of cigarettes weighs about 1oz. 1oz of marijuana costs 80-120 for the lowest grade of quality on the black market.

Kids should not have access to it, it should be over 18-21.

I'm just curious of your thoughts ad opinions.

It's probably beneficial, possibly slightly harmful. People who smoke it constantly have said that they develop memory problems, and of course coughing is always a long term effect of inhaling too much of any kind of smoke. But overall it's a generally harmless drug. I don't know much about it's purported benefits.

Benefits? You sir have obviously never played cruising USA on n64 while baked. First place every time. I can only assume real racing would yield the same results.

It is really bad for you when smoked. But I really don't care about legalization issues enough to get into a lengthy conversation.

There is debate about its benefits. Most medical associations don't approve of it and think its benefits are minimal. They say use Marinol instead.

Marijuana is an axiom. It simply is.
It requires no explanation.
It defines itself by it's own function.

For example:

Q:" What is Marijuana?"
A:" Yes. "

Q:" What can Marijuana be used for?"
A:" Yes."

Q:" What would you do to legalize Marijuana?"
A:" Yes."

Also, Marijuana goes great with Heineken.

I didn't include any other drug in this debate.
If pot wasn't on the black market less people would be attracted to the other drugs the most sought out.
That's an attribute to any speed overdose.

You realize those arguments are from the early to mid 90's?
to be ignrant, but I didn't even read them. It was more about "drug" legalization rather than marijuana legalization.

As of 2002, 2 have died of overdose. But other deaths have been caused by the drug through other health risks.
http://www.drugwatch.org...

The end of the first paragraph. "Although alcohol may have been used."
This was created by a nonprofit anti-marijuana group that left no real clues to their resources.

It is still derived from marijuana.

Marijuana costs no more than a pack of cigarettes to manufacture. A pack of cigarettes weighs about 1oz. 1oz of marijuana costs 80-120 for the lowest grade of quality on the black market.

Agreed, so what?

Taxed or untaxed, that money would better boost the economy than kingpins pockets.

Kids should not have access to it, it should be over 18-21.

Well duh. But then you have a black market amongst teenagers.

Marijuana is easier to access than beer or cigarettes.


I'm just curious of your thoughts ad opinions.

This is my opinion, but I have no opinion on drug policy (simply put, I don't care).

People are going to prison for life sentences because they were in possession of $200 worth of pot or less in the USA.
That's a horrible injustice that they have to face simply because "people don't care".

You're not going to get too much resistance to legalizing marijuana on this site...
Beliefs in a nutshell:
- The Ends never justify the Means.
- Objectivity is secondary to subjectivity.
- The War on Drugs is the worst policy in the U.S.
- Most people worship technology as a religion.
- Computers will never become sentient.

Benefits? You sir have obviously never played cruising USA on n64 while baked. First place every time. I can only assume real racing would yield the same results.

This is typical of what marijuana is good for, and it encourages even more of these kinds of behaviors. IOW, altered mental states, laziness, and unproductive behavior. Trust me, I know this from experience. Although, I think that the owners of the Doritos company will argue with me about it being beneficial. It's really bothersome to think back on all the money I spent on weed, munchies, and games, not to mention the time spent doing absolutely nothing productive or helpful to anyone, including myself. It was just a wasted period of my life, pardon the pun.

So ultimately, no, it should not be legalized/decriminalized. If anything, I think penalties for possession should be increased.

Those are the kinds of rights that I think of when it comes to talking about "freedom". So who are you to question my freedom to do those things?? I doubt that the founding fathers envisioned a "right or freedom" to sit around smoke dope and play video games all day, when they spoke of rights and freedoms. I think that using that word to make an argument for something like drug legalization is a molestation of the meaning of the word.

Oh Heavens, no, you misunderstand. I was just saying that I put away so many Doritos, while I was stoned, that I should have been given stock in the company. I still love them and would never advocate banning them, they are a national treasure.

By that logic junk food and video games should be outlawed, shoot every recreational activity should be outlawed as they aren't productive activities. Movies , TV

I'm a person who is exercising his free speech rights to argue against drug legalization, or voting rights if it comes up for a vote. Those are the kinds of rights that I think of when it comes to talking about "freedom".
Freedom is not simply exercising the right to vote. Freedom entails choosing your destiny, creating your own life path, and making decisions for yourself without Big Brother regulating your life. Freedom is not simply restricted to political freedom.
So who are you to question my freedom to do those things??
I never questioned your freedom to do things. You are free to air your idiotic beliefs as you please, and I am free to question them. Who are you to question my freedom to question your beliefs or even my freedom to question your freedom to question my freedom to control my life?
I doubt that the founding fathers envisioned a "right or freedom" to sit around smoke dope and play video games all day, when they spoke of rights and freedoms.
The Founding Fathers lived in an era in which the educated elite did not work. They all owned slaves whom they forced to do work for them, ran the government (which was extraordinarily small), and whiled away their days in intellectual discussion. This is not much different than sitting home all day and being unproductive. If they can sit home all day and be unproductive, why am I not afforded the same freedom?

Moreover, the FFs had a very twisted sense of freedom that included owning and raping slaves. I do not particularly care what their conception of freedom entailed.
I think that using that word to make an argument for something like drug legalization is a molestation of the meaning of the word.

How? Political freedom is not the only form of freedom.

Benefits? You sir have obviously never played cruising USA on n64 while baked. First place every time. I can only assume real racing would yield the same results.

This is typical of what marijuana is good for, and it encourages even more of these kinds of behaviors. IOW, altered mental states, laziness, and unproductive behavior. Trust me, I know this from experience. Although, I think that the owners of the Doritos company will argue with me about it being beneficial. It's really bothersome to think back on all the money I spent on weed, munchies, and games, not to mention the time spent doing absolutely nothing productive or helpful to anyone, including myself. It was just a wasted period of my life, pardon the pun.

So ultimately, no, it should not be legalized/decriminalized. If anything, I think penalties for possession should be increased.

By that logic junk food and video games should be outlawed, shoot every recreational activity should be outlawed as they aren't productive activities. Movies , TV

I doubt he would care about this so long as big-government is making profits from your labor. Why even permit people to sleep? That reduces productivity. Work them to death and import more slaves from Africa.

Exagerate much?? The discussion isn't about those things. It's about marijuana and it's effects.

Wasn't your logic that:

If X causes unproductivity, then X should be banned.
