Shall I show you the quote where you said you wanted the highways safe? Your character trait is you like to blame ONE thing without looking at other things that cause the SAME THING you claim to rally against. You claimed you wanted the highways safe. That wasn't my claim, that was YOURS.
I don't care what ANY doctor says...even that smoking pot will kill you in 5 seconds.
IT IS NONE OF THE GOVERNMENTS BUSINESS WHAT ANY SANE ADULT PUTS IN THEIR BODY.
'What kind of sick and twisted toy factory is this?'
'We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away.'
"Better to be dead and cool, than alive and uncool."
Why do you think it's intelligent to use liberal arguments? Do you have any respect for liberty whatsoever, or are you one of the big government statist types that wants to control what people do in the privacy of their own homes?
Alcohol, cigarettes, big macs, cars, guns, etc. etc. etc. all kill thousands and thousands of people every year, while marijuana kills zero. Why aren't you begging the government to control those things for you as well?
And why do you want the government defining what happens in the privacy of your home? Would you like them defining your sexual position, or what you may eat?

"If I take death into my life, acknowledge it, and face it squarely, I will free myself from the anxiety of death and the pettiness of life - and only then will I be free to become myself." ~ Martin Heidegger
Oh wait, it's not.
Just saying "it's different" and "they're not the same" doesn't actually say anything.
HOW, specifically HOW is it not the same?
An IRRESPONSIBLE person takes a gun, goes into a crowded area, and shoots people.
An IRRESPONSIBLE person smokes some weed, goes into a car, and hits someone.
In the first instance, the stance is we shouldn't blame the gun and ban it, we blame the person who CHOSE to take the gun and use it in an irresponsible way.
Yet in the second instance, the stance seems to be we should blame the pot and ban it, NOT blame the person who CHOSE to take the pot and use it in an irresponsible way.
Please, EXPLAIN how they're "not the same" because just saying "they're not the same" isn't an argument.
If that is your only argument, let me issue an equally legitimate and sound retort.
"Yes, they're the same"
"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
