    Re: Marijuna

    Tigger:

    Anyone could kick a candle over and start a fire. The fire wasn't started by Marijuana. People don't have to be "Pot heads" to fail to call 911 to report a fire. Your entire argument is a red herring. Your example fails on so many levels.

    My point, and the point I will always make in regards to this topic is that like alcohol, the use of marijuana places an individual in an altered mental state where they are no longer capable of making good, proper, and right decisions on a moments notice. THAT in and of itself should be enough to get the plant eradicated from the entire planet. That is also why the mere possession of the product should lead to an immediate death sentence, without trial. There is NO worthwhile medicinal or narcotic use for the plant. IF a version were capable of being produced that could make hemp without any chance of being converted back into a form that could be smoked, I'd be for allowing that. Otherwise, wipe it and all of its users off this planet and we'll be better off so far as I'm concerned.
    The death penalty without trial? I'm beginning to think you favor child molesters over potheads. You've never spoke of them with such hatred. Not to mention that this statement of yours is completely anti American. Well done.

    I see a redeeming value in corporal punishment and discipline. I see no redeeming value in the possession, sale, distribution, or use of that crap. I think my feelings on the panty-waisted and linguini-spined version of society that America currently engenders is already well known.

    Tbh, that's pretty extreme. There is, however, some medical use for marijuana, though I favor tight regulations on it so as not to be abused.

    I have severe glaucoma of the type that marijuana could possibly be used for if it were legal. I'd rather be blind than to ever even consider that treatment. My father died of cancer and refused any/all THC-related pain therapy. It's not necessary. There are other, legitimate options.

If they hadn't had the marijuana the fire would likely never have started. If they'd been jailed (or better yet executed) during their prior marijuana related run ins with the law it never would have happened. If they had been willing to accept the responsibility for their actions (which they were not in their immoral state) the tragedy could have been averted.
    So the accidents that happen sober can be attributed to what, fun? Are you sure your not from Footlose?

    Seriously, you are SO overreacting on marijuana, it does not do what you are describing. It does cause people to go crazy, and do wild things they wouldn't normally do. For the vast vast majority of people, all it does is make you sleepy, happy, and hungry. You don't get addicted to it like other drugs, and you can't overdose on it. There is really no danger with it at all. Legalize it and all be done with it.

His life and my sight are not more important than our Souls, thank you very much.
    and i see this as a post of one who is willfully ignorant and proud of it
    to have glaucoma and refuse to take a wonderful drug that will mitigate the effects of that disease is only something a fool would do
    to experience the pain of cancer (and likely the nausea that accompanies many forms of treatment) and refuse to mitigate it because the soothing drug is marijuana is another act of ignorance
    and then to pretend that your soul would be at risk if you indulged in marijuana may be the most stupid statement i have ever seen on the internet, and that is a VERY low threshold to cross

    you have no argument. unless willful ignorance is an argument

    If it works, it works. However, it's entirely your choice what way you want to be treated. I am not in your shoes, so I cannot say what is the best option.

    From some articles I have read, including government articles, THC does have some harmful effects, ranging from tar that sticks to the neurons in the brain, to aiding in the cancers of the throat, lungs, and mouth.

    That's not the THC, but the act of smoking.
