    I'm aware. You're against it and I'm for it, which is why I'm trying to undermine your credibility by exposing your inconsistency.

    Surely, if you favor criminalizing marijuana on the basis that it causes lung disease you would also favor criminalizing fatty foods, since they cause heart disease. Unless, of course, your sole concern is people's lungs, in which case I would simply write you off as being a strange individual as opposed to an inconsistent one...

    If you want one about alcohol, fatty foods, or tanning beds.....be my guest. Start a thread. I'll debate the merits of that too.
    The question cuts right to the heart of your credibility, which means it is relevant to our debate concerning the legalization of marijuana. I understand if you're afraid to answer the questions, since the outcome would most likely be unfavorable to your position, but I'm less than sympathetic.

    Well, it's true. Prohibition creates an unregulated black market for drugs. Consequently, it empowers drug dealers who have no qualms about selling drugs to children. That's your fault.
    Well, drug dealers have no qualms about selling marijuana to children and no, that's not my fault. The people buying alcohol for my friends and myself weren't suppose to buy alcohol for us either. But hey, it was easy to get. which brings me to my next point....the most prevalent drug being used by children of school age isn't marijuana, it's alcohol. Hardly surprising since it's both more readily accessable and cheaper than marijuana. These are just two more reasons you should oppose marijuana legalization too.

    source

    ...Drug-Specific Prevalence

    The most abused substance is alcohol in adolescents, followed by cigarettes and marijuana (Johnson, O'Malley and Bachman, 1994). Crome (1997) found that at least 30% of secondary school students drink alcohol regularly, with 10% drinking more than moderately. 10 - 20% of the students smoke cigarettes regularly, 70% have tried at least one illicit drug, with 2.5% using an illicit drug at least weekly. When only a single month is looked at, 33% of 12th graders and 9% of 8th graders reported being drunk at least one time in the past month in the study conducted by Johnston, O'Malley, & Bachman (1999). They also found that 23% of high-school seniors and 10% of 8th graders reported using marijuana in the last month. This is an increase of 9% and 7% over the last 8 years. Cigarette usage in the last month also increased, to 35% of seniors and 18% of 8th graders. This is an increase of 7 and 4% respectively over the last 8 years.....

    I can run off the effects of a big mac. If I smoke enough marijuana.....I can no longer run.

    I'm aware of that.

    Okay, so Big Macs stay legal but with mandated running proceeding consumption?

    What about alcohol? Does that stay legal, too? Not sure how someone can run off the effects of a bottle of tequila...

    Tanning beds? Legal? I wonder how a person reverses an hour of exposure to UV radiation? More running perhaps?

    {sigh} As I indicated earlier I'm more than willing to debate any topic you want. I suggest you start a thread and we can debate these topics individually.

    Okay, then why would you attempt to restrict a physician's options in treating their patient when you readily admit you have no formal medical training?
