And it's not remotely a fail. Movies, TV, video games, PARENTS and the Internet have ALL been associated with violent behavior in teens and other life-long issues. Not sure such a thing has been documented in pot...maybe, but certainly the links are much stronger in the things I listed.
Your ignorance is the problem. Unless you are asking for prohibition as well, making pot illegal is compeltely illogical.
Pot is the same as alcohol is. BOTH are to be used by ADULTS only. Anything more than that is criminal by either the parents or the person who buys it for them. But BOTH should be LEGAL. And yes, eventually YES, pot will be legal even in Texas when they realize what fools they have been.
And your community is already awash in dangerous chemicals...car exhaust, air and water pollution, your neighbor's weed killer for his beautiful lawn, factory waste and emissions....not to mention everyone in your community already impaired on an epidemic of PRESCRIPTION drugs.
You have nothing here....you know you cant use a moral argument here and are trying to use law and pseudo-science.
You think 'drugs are bad.' Well for the most part, so do I and the people that use them stupid. No laws against being stupid. I'm an American and believe in personal liberties...not making things illegal just cuz I dont like them. You're not much of a conservative to wish to see a failed GIANT bureaucratic program against pot be eliminated and the laws associated with it.
Youv'e applied your arbitrary knowledge of pots dangers without any legitmate study to back it up.
I'm guessing your'e basing the effects of marijuana use on your personal opinion, so why would black tar heroin be any different ?
They're both destructive and people who are high on either one are at a intellectual and physical disadvanatge.
Its their problem until they go out into the society and impose their addiction on the rest of us.
So you are ok with alcohol being "imposed" on you but not pot. It's clear you're letting your ignorance get in the way.
Go read some articles for once. Shall I google them for you too?
And you do not have a right to define and control the society your kids live in. There is no such right defined in the constitution. You have a right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You do not get to tell free human beings what they can and can not put in their own bodies. Do you have any respect for liberty whatsoever? Or just for your own contorted view of how people should act?
"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
