    Only some things, but not all things. The board will tell you what you can and can't have. You aren't an adult...you can't make choices for yourself. Also, while we are at it, no more big sodas.

    "GRAND JUNCTION In two years of work as an undercover officer with a drug task force, Mike Dillon encountered plenty of drugs. But nothing has surprised him as much as what he has seen in schools lately.

    Dillon, who is now a school resource officer with the Mesa County Sheriff's Department, said he is seeing more and younger kids bringing marijuana to schools, in sometimes-surprising quantities.

    "When we have middle school kids show up with a half an ounce, that is shocking to me," Dillon said."

    It's Colorado, they were already doing that.

    That is the theory behind illegal narcotics, yes. But if your next argument is "Well then why not ban alcohol!?" then, as I pointed out a while ago, you are really just making an argument for banning alcohol, not legalizing marijuana.

    Hahahah, higher numbers.


    But not really, marijuana use amongst kids has been on the rise for quite some time. It's just that now they don't feel the need to hide it. Get over it already. Gonna freak out that kids in middle school and high school drink booze too? Cause they do.

    Further proving that the entirety of the legalization argument is one long uninterrupted string of logical fallacy.

    Does your reasoning apply equally to traffic laws? Kids will wreck cars anyway. Should kids be given answers to all their tests in school because kids are just going to cheat anyway?

    The argument that some people will break the law is piss poor justification for repealing the law.

    Are you finding it difficult to distinguish these things with recreational drug use? The human appetite to experience something beyond what their senses can provide is not something that the law will ever tame. It is ancient, historic, and intrinsic to human society. Your analogy to traffic laws go a long way in showing that you have not quiet grasped that concept or this debate.

    Kids will wreck cars, yet I do not propose to ban them from cars. You do understand what makes a rational argument, yes? Not wild accusations and off the mark hyperbole. So stay on target next time you respond.

    IMO, I bet the percentage of teenagers smoking weed compared to when I was in high school (early-mid 90's) has dropped significantly....

    I'm not 100% that's true, but I don't think it's pot's fault either.

    Most kids these days won't even smoke a cigarette....

    I'd bet that more kids smoke pot than cigarettes.....
