    If possession and/or use of marijuana carried the ...

    This is a hypothetical exercise.

    If you do not partake, assume you do.


    If possession and/or use of marijuana carried the death penalty, would you continue to partake?

    Yes?
    No?


    My answer is that I would not chance it. So, no.

    There's some country, I think it is Indonesia?, where they execute you for possessing the tiniest amount of any drug... and still they have druggies and drug dealers.

    Addicted is addicted, and there's too much money in dealing it.

    I don't partake now, but I certainly wouldn't if it were punishable by death.

    For what it's worth, I definitely don't think it should be punishable by death. As for whether it should be legal, I am on the fence and would not vote one way or the other. I see plusses and minuses both ways.

    Mj addictive? I thought one of the reasons they cite to legalize it, is that it isn't addictive?

    Regardless, I am amazed that you would put your life in jeopardy over MJ.

    What is with these marijuana threads? Why is everyone obsessing over it out of the blue?

    I have no idea as to what you speak.
    This is just a question that was recently in my thoughts so I thought I would ask.
    So how about answering the question?

    No - in the last few week across the net the interest and posting of marijuana related questions, debates and articles has skyrocketed . . . and I wouldn't smoke it regardless - I don't like to alter my awareness and sense of self. It only causes problems.

    So maybe I have unwittingly been influenced.
    That is how it works sometimes.

    So how about making your answer in the poll?

    I'll ponder. . . I usually don't poll.

    In fact - I don't think I've polled in years.

    But I'll make an exception for you.

    No, wouldn't take the risk. No loss to me, I've never smoked it. Now if they outlawed pizza...
