    It is you being dishonest by suggesting weed is a harmless substance.

    FAIL

    See your previous post. Wow. That was really easy.
    FAIL

    Semantics :

    Uhhh no. I'm not. Do you know what semantics mean?

    FAIL


    I find drunks to be sad. I guess we're about even.

    Me too. I am not a drunk, I drink on occasion socially, and almost never to excess, (three is a maximum for me when out, as its not part of my diet to have that many carbs) never around children, and never when driving.


    So even? Not even close. I am a responsible drinker. You are an admitted daily weed smoker who puts weed before anything else.


    So calling me a drunk? FAIL

    Anywho.



    Like alcohol.

    You keep bringing up alchohol as if I am defending alchohol, making a value judgment of one over the other.


    FAIL


    And alcohol can kill you on your first drinking binge. You can not possibly smoke enough weed to die from it after one time use. However drink enough alcohol and irregardless of how many times you've tried it before you can die.

    As can drinking too much water. What is your point? Do you even remember it? What position of mine do you think you are even arguing against?


    Oooh a little touchy. I already explained to you. Your attacks on marijuana and it's users are a tad hypocritical the moment alcohol is brought up.

    How so? I probably drink socially 3-4 times a month, almost never to excess, and NEVER when I am driving.

    The only reason I didn't call the cops on that asshole at legal seafood was because I had no service. I laid into the barkeep about letting him leave as well.

    I find those who drive under the influence of a recreational substance, abhorrent scum.


    You are trying to lower me to a pathetic way of living. I am nothing like those who drive drunk or high.... FAIL



    I support yours to drink yourself to death.

    Freedom is a bitch.


    I believe in drinking all around. Wait.....
    idiotic non response, incoherent rambling, pass.





    Yawn. Save it for Amazing Grace.


    Yeah, cause freedom to you is what you can get for yourself... noted.

How ludicrous. Doctor's aren't really allowed to treat people with chronic pain in a sense because all those drugs are "addicting" which is again, ludicrous. When you need them, and know you'll only get 120 pills a month, you aren't going to abuse them, trust me.

    I'm so bad off I truly don't know what I'm going to do, and yes, I've tried everything. This is one thing I was hoping Obama would help the country with, and it's this antiquated way of looking at everything.

    Personally, if we are going to go down the toilet, we're probably lucky we haven't done so a long time ago.

    I have always been against Pot for the sole reason that it is illegal and getting caught impacts your chances at getting good jobs. But if it was legal I would have no more objections to it than smokes or alchohol..regulate it and tax it all you want, since it fits somewhere between smokes and liquor for impact on society....

    It could lift some of the burdens off of the Californian budget. If you legalize it and tax it, your already saving the wasteful amounts of money spent on police, court and prison resources to keep people from toking up. Saving the state economy though is quite a long shot, there would have to be alot more reform besides legalization of marijuana to do that.

    2. this is one anecdotal incident on TV, and we know the TV never lies.

    3. driving while high, no matter how much of a burned out dickhead you are, still endangers people who follow the law, like me.
    All I wanted to show is you can smoke marijuana to improve your focus, those conditions are not the same conditions you would see on road. I do not promote smoking marijuana and driving, I just want to show that you can smoke to improve focus for simple things.

    I'm not really sure that there would be a market for weed bars. The reason they exist in Amsterdam is because weed being legal is a novelty which attracts tourism. However, if weed was legal on the scale of the United State's largest state I think, at least for the people of California, the novelty would diminish quickly. And then it would be a question of whether weed really lends itself to bars.

    I don't really think it does, at least not in the way alcohol lends itself to bars. Booze is a social drug, lots of people go to bars and meet people, it's the purpose of the establishment. I don't think weed lends itself to that kind of socialization.

    I also don't think that letting people smoke pot in bars is a good idea. People who are stoned and drunk just become retarded and don't enjoy either effectively.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    You mean showing you the definition of words you clearly do not know how to use?

    Are you having a seizure? Put down the beer bottle son.

    No. I am bringing up alcohol as a reference to how weed should be handled. Try again?

    FAIL
    Seriously, are you having a seizure?

    As can drinking too much water.
    Pssst. Water is legal.

    What is your point? Do you even remember it? What position of mine do you think you are even arguing against?
    Your hypocrisy. Weed smokers bad. Ruining your liver! Funny!

    How so? I probably drink socially 3-4 times a month, almost never to excess, and NEVER when I am driving.
    And yet your liver is useless according to you.

    The only reason I didn't call the cops on that asshole at legal seafood was because I had no service. I laid into the barkeep about letting him leave as well.

    I find those who drive under the influence of a recreational substance, abhorrent scum.
    I'm driving in about an hour to town. Gotta start rolling.

    Isn't it good for glaucoma? That is a real bummer to have. Even with treatment you sometimes go blind.

    I notice you are like a lot of the posters being you have a pro drug stance, but are not attacking the root of the problem with drug legislation. The federal government shouldn't have the right or ability to restrict the sale of anything.

    We get caught up in restricting things because they are deamed not socially acceptable. The states are the ones who are to decide what can be socially accepted in there areas as long as it is something that does not conflict others rights.
