    More jobs might be good for some people.

    More profit might be squirelled away or spent on bling.

    Higher productivity only creates more profit if there is a market for what is produced.

    Weed is one of God's greatest gifts to mankind, and people from all walks of life enjoy it. I'm sorry if you are being excluded.

    I would like to go back and remind everyone that Rand said "all the time" in his words, referring to weed. Like most anything in life, moderation is OK.
    Sorry, I thought this thread was meant to be satirical, considering the OP.

    I think Danarhea just doesn't understand libertarianism. Do you?

    Well, I agree with Rand Paul on this issue even more so than merely politics. I'm not a big fan of mind altering drugs but the Government has neither the ability nor the authority to prevent people from using them if they so choose, regardless on whether I think they're a good idea.

    Paul Rand will never see the inside of the White House, except as a visitor.

    Like most Republicans. he's on the wrong (Losing.) side of every social issue.

    Supporting pot-smoking will not get him elected POTUSA.

    His acknowledgement that it isn't worse than alcohol is all he needs. He doesn't need to support it.

    What he said was spot on. It should not be criminalized, casual use is not a problem, but "people that use all the time" (IE your typical pothead) are absolutely unmotivated, or rather motivated basically towards nothing but munchies, video games, and the next bowl. The same could be said of people that drink alcohol "all the time" or any other drug use "all the time".

    I'm a lazy, forgetful bastard, and I've never done weed in my life.

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    LOL...

    Weed affects different people differently. Maybe it will make you less forgetful and motivated?

    It doesn't matter if I spend it on trying to buy world peace or a new Mercedes. Either way, as long as I'm hiring people and contributing to the economy everyone's a winner.

    And if I produce stuff that no one wants, I'll go out of business and someone who's better at their job will take my place. Such is the beauty of free market capitalism
    If you hate capitalism so much, then just write everything in lower case. Problem solved.
