Cancer patients deserve every right to have access to marijuana, but some of these damn pot heads that are constantly complaining about being in pain, depressed, need to get off their ass on do something. You feel so much better when you finally stop smoking anyways. Marijuana causes anxiety and depression, trust me. There is nothing wrong with doing it every once in awhile or on the weekends, but this everday, even at work BS is annoying as hell to me.
    Well, it's the only way they can justify their use. Again... best intentions were to let medical marijuana's legal use for those who could REALLY benefit by it, and it's corrupted by idiots who then make claims and get scripts written not because they really need it but because they just want to get stoned, or stay stoned. I say legalize it and we can stop the pretense that some people are "sick" who need "medication". I agree... it's annoying.

    May I politely suggest a history lesson? Study the prohibition. And then get back to me.

    There is no good reason behind legalizing it. Keep it illegal and crack down on pot use. Prosecute the states that break federal law and "legalize it" for "medical use."

    Seriously? Spend more money on enforcing laws against an essentially harmless substance?

    Essentially harmless by your viewpoint. I think instead of putting offenders in jail we should fine them heavily to help fund their rehabilitation and correctional proceedings.

    If you smoke weed, you don't need rehabilitation...

    Tell me do you think the government should fine alcholics and force them to go to rehab? Or fine people for smoking because it's bad for them?

    Because might I remind you that alcohol and tobacco are more addictive then marijuana which actually registers pretty low on the addiction scale.

    I use to smoke weed, and well... I'm fine, I have a steady job, I support myself... and guess what? I'm not a criminal.

    I think if someone is an alcoholic they should be sent to rehab, yes. We already "fine" people for smoking through increased taxes on cigarettes.

    I can't support legalizing marijuana or any more psychoactive substances for recreational use. I don't think we should jail people for it, but we should fine them heavily. There is no reason behind legalizing weed and allowing another psychoactive substance to be used at will.

    Just out of curiosity, who should (not does but should) pay for rehab in your opinion?

It was much more career and job oriented than most other schools. More like a tech school than anything else. If you didn't know what you wanted to do, and weren't really dedicated to doing it, Johnson & Wales University wasn't the place for you.

    I'm not seeking any particular reaction. Just stating the truth.
