ANYONE who thinks otherwise, please inform me so that we can proceed to have a true debate on the topic, otherwise, keep your silly, emotionally-based arguments to yourself because I'm tired of hearing them.

    What I find most ironic, is some of the most vehement defenders of the Second Amendment resort to the EXACT same tactics as the anti-gun crowd with their idiotic and nonsensical demonizing of an inanimate object. How can you defend guns against a brazenly idiotic premise while utilizing the exact same premise against marijuana? How can one fail to see this!? The hypocrisy of some people is simply astonishing.
    Because marijuana allegedly makes people lazy....but guns don't kill people....wait...inconsistency....

    So you believe that the people and governments of the U.S. and every other civilized nation, including Canada and the most liberal EU societies, which all strictly enforce laws against cultivation, trafficking, and in most cases even the personal use of small amounts of marijuana, are all deluded?

    Is that your belief?

    What laws are you exactly talking about. I expect links BTW per country and per law.

    Other nations are not my concern, nor are appeals to the majority. Foreign legal systems are unique to their region and history, therefore, I am not interested in discussing the efficacy or validity of their drugs laws; their business is their own.

    What concerns me is the arguments against legalization in the US. They are blatantly wrong in every way conceivable. There is no legal, logical, moral, or philosophically legitimate argument against legalization; it simply does not exist. We are a nation of liberty engendered by NEGATIVE RIGHTS. Americans would do well to familiarize themselves with this concept as it seems to escape them with some regularity. If you feel my argument is without merit, then let us proceed with a true debate.

    I'll take the pro-drug crowd over your whiny diatribes. I have yet to see you formulate a structurally sound argument. In fact, most of your arguments are very emotional.

    You must look at why the economy is spiraling downward; why do you think that is?

    Hint: it is not from a lack of jobs or job creation.
    So more jobs and a taxing on marijuana would not help? Please.

    Do you realize how ridiculous that sounds? Debates should always be about logic and reason.
