    Recreational use legalization isn't a front burner right wing issue. Let's be honest, anyone who wants to buy pot to get high can do so pretty easily and with little serious fear of being caught, except for drug tests. So righties accept the status quo and are content to let others do the heavy lifting politically on this issue.
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    I dig it.

    (I still can't believe that someone on the Nixon re-election campaign actually signed off on naming his re-election pack the Committee to Re-Elect the President. I mean, there isn't even really a second "e" there. "C.R.E.E.P." has to have been deliberate.)

    Yep. There ARE still some principled people in the world these days. Not enough of us, but some.

    Thjat just seems wrong. If you don't want to smoke weed, fine but why would you refuse a particular drug?

    Let's pretend that this issue isn't solely about you and your Father.
    At the high-end, untreated stages I have heard it is incredibly painful. Thankfully at this time mine is treatable with other methods. It's about PRINCIPLES, not masochism. Yeah, I know most people don't actually believe in PRINCIPLES anymore, but some of us do.

    So far as I'm concerned the issue is PRINCIPLES, and that makes it about my father, myself, and especially about those of you who have no PRINCIPLES.

    Oh, should I add that I got a college roommate expelled for having marijuana in our dorm room?

    In other news, Doritos made a big donation to the new pot legalization superPAC.

    And some of us don't give a **** about your "Principles" and hew to our own.

    (For the record, I do not smoke marijuana.)

    Principles. The same reason I don't drink alcohol, use tobacco products, or any other drug. In fact I go out of my way not to use any OTC pain medications either unless there is no other choice. As for what Principle I'm talking about.... Personal Responsibility. These compounds put you in a mental state where you may not be capable of taking care of yourself properly or being able to make instant judgement calls with proper clarity.

    Well sure, but I'll take Tylenol if I have a headache. I certainly don't have a problem with cough syrups that contain alcohol.

    I'm not a fan of smoking weed either, but if there were a legitimate medicine derived from THC I would take it if I needed to.

    I go out of my way to avoid taking ANY medications that I don't absolutely need to. OTC or prescription. In 2005 I had 31 teeth extracted over the course of two consecutive Mondays. Even though I had pain-killers prescribed, I never filled either prescription and dealt with the pain via hot showers and as minimal doses of Advil as I could get away with. I also only missed 5 days of work throughout the ordeal.

    I would not, under any circumstance, take a THC-related medication.
