    That's brilliant! I asked you your opinion and you don't have one unless I'm a user...is your answer going to change based on my level of recreational use or abuse?

    If you don't know anything about marijuana, except what you've read, then why would I care about your opinion of my opinion? You would be commenting on a subject on which you have no real knowledge.

    But isn't the entire point of coming to this site to debate issues and learn things you don't know? I've never been a politician, should I not comment on them? I've never met god, should I not talk about her?

    Not all subject matter requires direct experience but if you've voted or kept up with political debate you have some knowledge. And if you've had some religious experience at least you doing as well as most. If I deny to teach you because you lack experience with something that's my choice.

    There is no major illegal drug category that I don't have experience with.

    There is no major drug category that I can't acquire within 3 hours despite all the laws.

    If drugs were legal and required a prescription, I would have been much less likely to experience them. Legality would destroy the black market and I wouldn't have casually gone for a Doctors appointment. Indeed, my MD offered me a marijuana license recently (68 and arthritic) and I just couldn't be bothered since I can buy pot anytime I want anyway and I don't feel like paying for the license.

    Well then, I think your rules for discussing topics are fairly immature so we'll just stop now...and you don't know whether I have the experience or not, you're just assuming...

    Good to know that since I've never been to church or read the bible, I shouldn't discuss religion...
