    This is good. Stop wasting tax money fighting something so harmless.

    The Straight Dope: How does marijuana cause "the munchies?"
    The Munchies, Marijuana and Happiness | Psychology Today
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I was going for comedy, but there's a reason Jack-in-the-Box has built a specific ad campaign aimed at potheads.

    Hey, holding a Big Gulp? Face a death squad. Holding a doobie? No prol'um mon.

    I don't think the government should be concerned with either one, but in all honesty a joint is probably better for you than one of the large soda's they sell at the movies.

    I agree. I've been smoking pot and working out for years and dont weigh more than a buck O five. It does encourage the munchies but it doesn't make people fat
    Silly poor people
    Tax cuts are for the rich!

    In later years when you're hacking blood out of your lungs, you can think of this moment.

    Not withstanding the ridiculous exaggeration, you're missing the difference between supply and possession.

    Nobody will be punished for drinking vast amounts of soda but companies are being prevented from selling it in huge sizes, which only encourage people to consume (and pay) more than they would naturally choose to.

    The real problem is that those two things often go hand in hand.
