I'm not saying they're good for you...in fact, they are a mild poison. On the other hand, the reason most are illegal is because some putz used them as an excuse to act like an a$$holio.
Whoa, look's like i started a bush fire here. I mean, basically that if you can smoke it and be productive, good and "go on with your bad self" as they say.. but if "smoking 10 bowl's" or however they say it doesn't do anything to you, then, why smoke it.

Oh and i'm not sure that's approprate language, i was offended.

I don't want to derail this thread, considering it is likely to get yanked anyway, but I have to say it did make me think. I was considering the argument that thousands of animals will eat cannabis growing in the wild. Then I started wondering if animals commonly eat poppies and/or coca or any other medicinal plants. Then I started thinking of how my cats and dogs will eat grass when they have an upset stomach but are also capable of eating and drinking things I wouldn't think of touching, all the way from truly disgusting things that would probably kill me (if only from retching to death) down to muddy water. I, otoh, prefer a grass extract for upset stomach and Muddy Waters on my sound system.

The upshot of this is that now I am wondering just what mechanism(s) help animals comprehend what substances are safe and which are dangerous, that we seem to have lost. Obviously they can't detect some kinds of poisonous pollution in water, but they are quite good with plants. Why is that and how does that work? Is heightened sense of smell the only reason? and if that's so, how is it that some dogs can apparently detect some forms of cancer in people?

See? I don't need cannabis. Free Association? Check!

but I hate that it's called military intelligence$ so if your friends would have killed the "bad guys" either side being high or not would that have helped? And, how about after having killed, some could consider marijuana as therapeutic? That being said I don't condone typerope waking stoned a good idea unless you trained high (pun(?))

Yes, I forgot to remind people how old it was and did so in the other thread link is ^above. My stance is almost the same but medically seeking it's a crime for it not to be legal!

I personally think we are way to tolerant to drugs. Ganja is a drug and it should be baned.
seriously DUDE
do you want your taxes doing things like building roads fixing bridges supporting schools
or would your taxes be better spent locking up people who have never hurt anybody in any way
who just had something non lethal not a weapon in there position
do you really want your taxes supporting a black market in pot with all the damage to society
that a black market of any kind involves

look at the huge disaster the (so called ) war on drugs has been for the U.S.
I think ALL DRUGS should be legal

we had alcohol probation here in the U.S.
it was the most law less time in our history
it was so bad that it embedded organized crime in to our economy
and is still inflicting damage to this day over 70years later

I am betting this thread is not only dead but in a state of rigormortus. I notice fewer and fewer cons posting and that is indicative of a mindset that says

I just want to know the government is working to protect my sensibilities and tell me everything is gonna be OK

Oh well it is a drug so use it like you should. Don't over do it. Use it wisely. And remember it is your life and pursuit of happiness. My father died of alcohol.
My sister destroyed her life with a mix of alcohol and other drugs.

To think that people get put in prison for 3 to 5 years for small amounts of Pot. Well that is crazy.

Why is alcohol legal . It was decided by congress that it was to violent to keep prohibition going. To many innocent people hurt in the actual enforcement.

Not going to say smoking pot and being a stoney with the short term memory loss is a good or bad thing. Just saying smoking pot should not make you a criminal.

Heck at my age if I got stoned I pass out with a bag of chips in my hand.
So I say this to everyone. It not about right or wrong it is about growing up and being responsible.

sour cream chips are good like the BBQ ones to. Now was it the ripples I had last night mmm.
