    Spoiler alert:

    Because that "erudite" post satirically exemplified the all too common position that you are doing a wonderful job of reinforcing.

    You guys are gonna have to stop. Otherwise even more fallacious arguments will come forth.

    Marijuana cannot be made legal, otherwise the terrorists win!

    Im very surprised GH did not support this argument yet; many far right ne0-cons use it.
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    It would appear that you have nothing of relevance left to "contribute" to the discussion at hand.

    Why does anyone still bother “debating” these people? Their views are based on emotions incapable of being expressed rationally, so their only contribution is to tacitly deride the opposition with feigned discourse.
    What is rational about smoking pot?

    Wow, so Holland, Germany, France and other nations who make Pot illegal are Conservative? I had no idea.

    How ironic watching you go on talking about logic when making such illogical arguments.

    I am still trying to comprehend the logic of sitting around and smoking weed. It must be the same confused logic that suggests that sucking smoke into your lungs from weed is not bad for you either.

    I truly could care less if POT is made legal; but the notion that this will solve California’s or any State’s revenue problems makes me laugh hysterically.

    Yes, we need more people to just get stoned and sit around waiting for their Government checks. This will keep the economy going.

    I wasn't aware rational was a requirement for something to be legal.

    You obviously aren't aware of anything rational when debating either.

    Carry on.

    Solve? No. Help? Yes.

    And some conservatives need to grow up instead of generalizing everyone that smokes pot as lazy. I know all to well there are more successful people than you that smoke pot.
