    The real gateway buzz is spinning in circles to get dizzy, the spinners move on to making each other pass out, and then soon they are in middle school and trying out pot because it is so easy to attain, and then the **** just goes from there. Some people just have a propensity to enter altered states, and others don't.

    legalization would include laws regarding sales and distribution to minors, thus making it more difficult for juveniles to get drugs, delaying the age of first use, and significantly lowering the potential for lifetime use and abuse.

    Most studies indicate that alcohol is a much stronger "gateway" drug than is marijuana. More people do stupid things while drunk than stoned.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    That is BS and a myth that has been discredited time and again. Why am I not surprised that you would still try to make than argument?

    It depends who is doing the studies..........Studies also say that pot eats brain cells......Someone made a joke about the reason prop 19 did not pass is because the pot users were to stoned to get out and vote.....Lot of truth there...........

    If you are going to try to refute something, you should do it with substance instead of just claiming that something is liberally biased. BTW, did it occur to you that the BBC only wrote the article and that the study was conducted by actual scientists?

    Proposition 19 to legalize marijuana defeated | abc7.com


    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- One of the most controversial measures on Tuesday's ballot is Proposition 19, the initiative to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana in California. It was sure to be challenged, even if voters approved it. Some lawmakers had already been preparing to tax cannabis sales. The measure was defeated Tuesday night.

    The Associated Press called the measure defeated at 9:45 p.m. Tuesday.
    What was missing in the debate, and apparently by you, is that medical marijuana is prescribed by doctors, the same as all other medical prescriptions.

    The tragedy is that MM is the only effective pain killer, and those millions who live in pain will be forced to deal with underground sources and give the profit to thugs who don't pay taxes.

    I don't have to...Its obvious to anyone that knows anything about politics that the BBC is a left wing rag.......Its about as left wing as moveon.org....If you did not know that then your the only one doesn't.........
