Not everyone who uses (and this does also include abuses) sticks out like a sore thumb, the vast majority go about their lives right under your nose while you are oblivious. You seem to be seizing upon a small segment at the extreme end of the bell curve and extrapolating that to all.
Edit: of course having read this thread these sloppy generalizations are a recurring theme from multiple posters.
Law Enforcement Against Prohibition
Drugs are bad, prohibition is worse
I am how God intended me to be, SOBER.
If you're not into Faith then I am what evolution intended me to be, SOBER.
No, you are not designed to go through life in a perpetual drug addled haze of compromised intelligence.
You are not at your best or brightnest under the influence of mind altering chemicals and AGAIN, addiction doesn't just hurt the addict.
It tears Families apart, it ruins marriages and it cost lives.
The Left wing Politicians want their constituents to be stupid, compromised and dependent.
If they cant burn the books or keep their supporters from educating themselves out of their political influence they'll just refuse to enforce the laws that stop this self destructive poverty enhancing behaviour.
It SHOULD piss you people off, but you havn't woken up yet apparently.
Hard to do that when your'e perennially High.
If you could point out where in the constitution or bible where you were granted this right, we'd love to see it. Please cite specific references.
I hate oregano. Do I have the right to lock you in a cage for consuming it?
"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
But don't worry, I will guarantee you that even when it is legal nationally, there will not be any more stoners in this country than there is now.
Marijuana is comprised of 400+ chemicals. With each strain, the amounts of each chemical varies greatly.
Humans are comprised of 60 chemical elements with varying levels of each from one person to the next.
To say marijuana affects all people the same is plain idiocy. Studies like this are pointless. Your sample size of one hardly constitutes first-hand knowledge on the subject.

Firstly you compared compounds to elements so that doesn't fly. Perhaps the best way to look at it is that the study did uncover what it says it uncovered but it is likely fair to say that the effects aren't as pronounced or disabling as the anti-weed groups tend to say. I don't think there is any question that nicotine is way more addictive and alcohol is much more disabling than marijuana. Probably best not to use it but it doesn't seem to be as terrible as some would like people to believe.
Alcohol prohibition was tried for 13 years and the results are IN! It frikken failed.
Or do you believe alcohol prohibition was a success? If so please explain how so

Like yours for instance.
I will NEVER agree to the legalization of marijuana for the purpose of getting stoned.
It is a far powerful and dangerous drug than its made out to be, especially for the younger generations.
