It's full of violence, hatred, and ethnic cleansing with a few good (but contradictory) one liners about being nice to people thrown in for good measure.

    And you still didn't respond to the quote I gave from Exodus....


    Again, this is simply ignoring the reality of my own example that I gave. I would have quit what I was doing from the sheer stress of it in the early stages. As it is, I smoked a few joints, calmed down, and everything worked out fine. Your entire argument rests on the idea that there is nothing productive about any mental state other than a sober one. There are mountains and mountains of scientific evidence to the contrary.


    There is nothing animalistic or "junkie" (do you even know what that word means btw? I've never touched heroin or hard drugs in my life....) about my actions. I'm a responsible business owner who likes to get high sometimes because it makes me happy and occasionally provides some inspiration. That's all. The idea that it takes self discipline to be sober relies on the idea that not being sober is more appealing. Given that it clearly isn't to you, that argument goes out the window too.
    Apparently you are the one who doesnt know what a junkie is. Feel free to look it up in the dictionary. Don't like the label? Ditch the weed!

    "A person suffering from drug addiction, most commonly used to refer to a heroin addict". There is no physical addiction with marijuana, it's psychological, and as I said, I've never touched heroin in my life. There is a massive difference between junkies and people who smoke a bit of weed. The fact you can't tell the difference between the two is just a testament to your ignorance on the subject.
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.

    There is no point. All the faithful of all the world's religions believe in essentially the same thing. It's called the golden rule for a reason. Morality is really very simple and universal. Only by being flippant and making **** up will you arrive at a fundamentally different conclusion.

    I guess you didn't read that defining closely enough, or else you are very thoroughly in denial. Probably denial. Very sad. You have my pity.

    Nope let them do it illegally. That way not only are they stupid, they can have arrest records when they are caught and kept out of the work place.

    But, seriously, I have a real issue with what Rand Paul said, and I strongly disagree with him. Why? Oh, I dunno. Just not motivated to explain, and besides, I forgot the question.

    Article is here.
    I think if used in excess then yes there is loss of IQ and motivation.

    This is the case of the obvious being anounced and the American public feigning outrage.
