I used to hangout with a bunch of dead heads in berkeley back in the 80's. they did everything. including marijuana. in the space of about 10 years, I watched them turn from intelligent people to honest to god "dead heads". not only did they become brain dead, they also became paranoid.
I oppose marijuana and other drugs for good reason. personal experinces.
If they did everything, you can't blame marijuana. I know many people using almost only marijuana and there is no problem. I have cured a lasting sciatica in one week with marijuana. In fact I have seen only benefices. I appreciate also *much* more the company of potheads than of drunks. Marijuana is as good for the health than green tea, and probably much better. Anyway, it is a nonsense that the government tell me what I can eat and consume, without any evidences that there are problems. As I said, the papers against marijuana contains always confusion between a implies b and b implies a. Always.
And if you fear the other drugs, just inform yourself about the devastating consequence of prohibition in that domain. It augments enormously the consumption of all kind of drugs. Legalize all drugs if you really want to protect the kids against drugs. Use clean legal regulation, and inform the people.

you should hear yourself talk. you contradict yourself.

legalize all drugs????? are you crazy?

where is the logic if you know they fry your brain?

do you think it is normal for your brain to function in such a way that allows you to see hallucinations all the time?

as I see it, and what is happening on capitol hill confirms this.. taking marijuana makes people think they are above the law. and that is not good for society. it brings chaos.

but hey... if you are brain dead, how would you know this?

let me finish my story about my dead head friends in berkeley.. we are not friends anymore.

you want to know why?

..one day, they came up to me and told me that I had to sell my car or we could not be friends anymore. I had this car for like 10 years. and I get this ultimatum now?..I thought to myself. so, I asked them quote, "what's the big deal?" "we'll been friends for over 10 years, and you are going to forget all that because of my car???"

their reply. and they said this in a very serious way quote, "the company that makes that car is responsible for the deforestation of the amazon forest. you must sell it, or you cannot continue to be friends with us."

I was so taken back by this stupid argument. I told them to shove it...thinking back, I realized the drugs did this to them.

I see the same sort of logic coming out of capitol hill now.

quote, "it's all bush's fault." "vote for me again because I will help cure cancer." "I'm going to be totally transparent." "outsourcing our jobs overseas is good for us."

yeah. right.

http://rehab-international.org/marijuana-addi...

you people than go around saying that you can't get a DUI with marijuana. that your senses are vastly better with the use of marijuana. yet, you can do a google search and find stats on how drug based DUI are increasing all over the country. duh.
http://www.prweb.com/releases/Arizona/DrugDUI...

frankly, I think you drug addicts will say anything to get your high. we already know you people will break the laws to get your high. I wonder just how far your addiction to marijuana will push you? kill someone?

people like you make me sick.
I'm sure these are people that have other addictions included! N wow, I wonder Wut kinda drug addicts you've come across, ur talking like this PLANT is more destructive than methamphetamine or alcohol? Plz, look on ur search engine n do sum research, check out how many numbers of people passed out or OD on mj??? N do u have to b childish with every thing u say? Duh? Really? N people like u, ignorant, n dumb as a door nail make me DREADFULLY sick! If u wanna go based on facts....check how many people if they r addicted to marijuana, are addicted to sumn else to stimulate the high? I could honestly tell u, cannabis is THE ONLY medication I use....that alone has helped n stopped me from taking anti-anxiety medication, opiate pain killers, n for u to continue going on about how us medical marijuana patients will "say n e thing to get high"...u don't don't SHIT! Ur jus prob referring to ur own experiences with out an open mind....u also mentioned ur all for compassionate use of medical marijuana but yet there u are calling me a drug addict n all this other bs coming outta ur typing!? How old r u n e way??? N trust n believe, I've gone thru addiction issues with narcotic opiate pain killers....I have not met, read carefully...I HAVE NOT YET MET, ANY ONE WHO HAS EVER been addicted to marijuana!

REALLY, this was pulled from the article of the shyt link u posted: "Not every person who is addicted to marijuana will have withdrawal symptoms. Actually, this is one of the few drugs that do not have a severe set of symptoms associated with withdrawal.", How stupid, Methadone Maintenence therapy for example, would NEVER ACCEPT a person "addicted" to marijuana for its treatment! N in this artice, this dumb ass person says,"Those who are addicted to marijuana will need the same drug treatment as a person addicted to any other drug. It is not easy to overcome an addiction, no matter what the substance is. Many people see marijuana as being a safe drug, but it is addictive and when young individuals form this addiction, they will need to seek treatment to win their battle"..stupid shyt I tell ya man! The person who wrote this article is as sum as u r! oh yea n this look familiar, pulled by UR article a well:"Marijuana addiction is relatively common, but it is usually combined with an addiction to a stronger drug."......meaning?!?! This was YOUR ARTICLE ASIA! N I told u the SAME shit!!! Hmmmmm sumone knows more than sumbody else here...I did my homework n there u are only reading the topic sentence n throwing it at us "addicts"!!!! Go take all ur stupid lil p.o.s link n ur addiction babble bullshit, n shove it far up ur ass to where only YOU could hear YOURSELF speak, cuz around these parts, well dear, quite frankly, WE DON'T GIVE A DAMN! Lol smh....gente pendeja....

Insulting allusions will not help your case.
Sulfuric acid and jumping out of a windows can also demolish my brain, and yet are legal.
When drugs where legal, there were no problem. It is the prohibition which creates the incentive to sell drugs, and it is the prohibition which makes it possible to hook young people.
We cannot control the drugs in prison, despite the modern technology, how would you control drugs outside prison?
The drug problem is an hoax. There is only a prohibition problem. Many vets of the war on drugs understand this very well. Listen to some member of LEAP (Law Enforcement Against Prohibition) here:



and related videos.

Legalize *all* drugs because it is the only genuine way to really protect all the kids against all the drugs, legal or illegal. Regulate them properly. Educate people and don't let the government do the thinking at their place because by doing so you generate the irresponsible behaviors.
Tax the drugs proportionally to their measurable danger and effective social costs. You will see the price growing up for dangerous products like tobacco and alcohol. For cannabis, you will see that the health insurance company will pay us to consume it, very quickly.

you sound like eric holder and janet napolitano.

you think you are above the law.

you have your opinion which happens to be contradictory to existing laws. in your mind, obeying the law is not acceptable.

I would want my kids to smoke dope as soon as they can light their own. Prior I would give 'em a little vodka in the skimmed or buttermilk which i get for free from the restaurant whenit is out date. My dog loves it and whenever you reach for a match she comes over and fries a sheet eating grin and sits so close you can smell her feet, she smiles a boomer when you finally light up and insists on a blow or more 'til she passes out or plays the piano. It is just like church; too much fun & fancy in religion to leave it to the religious alone.

LOL. Are they also Asian? I certainly hope so, because if they are white then you could come back with "You must stop claiming you are white because white people are the ones responsible for all of the deforestation worldwide". That is the truth.

Marijuana is a PLANT. It is not a drug. It is no different than broccoli or lettuce, and eating those plants makes you feel different, depending on the plant. Saying that "drugs did it to them" is ridiculous.

2 things...

your claim that white people are responsible for the deforestation of the rain forest is racist. my guess is - you are basing your claim on some "gut" feeling. right? the people who are responsible for the deforestation are the brazilians. duh.

as for your logic on marijuana being a plant. so, it could not do any harm to anyone. now, the moron in you is showing. don't you know that many drugs are made from organic materials? and many can kill you? cocaine, heroin, morphine to name a few. another duh.

I suggest you stop taking drugs. it is not making you any smarter.
