    That doesn't even make sense.

    Yeah, do you have evidence of those numbers? Regardless, why is it of anyone's concern? It's not my business if someone want's to get ripped on Jack or high on Maui Wowie. It alleviates many debilitating illnesses, so let those people use it for those reasons. Others want to get high, so let those people smoke up. It's all much ado about nothing. Personally I don't like to smoke it. I prefer to make tea out of it and put it on pizza and in baked goods.

    It's easy to get a prescription for weed. That's the point.

    Not questioning you. Just pointing out the wild abuse of the system.

    Henry, again, I'm not questioning you or anyone with legitimate conditions. I'm just saying a LOT of perfectly fine folks are suddenly in need of "pain medication". It's just not hard to get in many places.

    That reminds me of people faking illness during prohibition in order to have Doctors prescribe em' "medicinal alcohol" So what? Legalize it and let people use it for whatever reason they want or need.

    Who cares? It should be entirely legal to anyone who wants it. Why not let people smoke it to get high if they want? We let people drink to get drunk if they want.

    Yes, can you point me to the evidence presented that it's 'highly destructive at the personal and societal level?' They studied a small sample of college age students - how did they project those findings to career trajectory/family status/arrest rates/death rates/wealth/long term health, etc. of pot smokers versus casual or heavy drinkers or those who stayed home on Friday nights and studied? And where did they quantify or estimate ANY cost to society overall?

    That's exactly right. There is a massive death toll from alcohol abuse every year, but we don't really care about that. There is just no way I've seen to compare the two and with a straight face argue for keeping alcohol legal, elevate a major drug dealer like McCain to POTUS candidate, but locking people up in jail for smoking or selling pot.
