    I tried to follow the conversation but your posts read like incoherent gibberish. That's a "you" problem.

    I actually didn't know that. I never got into pot, strictly because it's illegal and I'm very much on-the-grid, regular UAs and everything.

    As soon as it's legal, not only for the general public but for the military also, I'm in.

    Oh come off it, even alcohol and tobacco affect the people around you. Alcoholics, lung cancer, smoking in public, DUI, numerous fire codes, medical/car insurance rates (especially if a non-user has a user on a shared policy)....I'm all for legalizing pot but that argument is pure bull****.

    If you can tell me how my smoking via vaporizer in the privacy of my own home effects other people, I will concede.

    Alcoholics? What does that have to do with weed?
    Lung cancer? I use a vaporizer. Even still, how many people have you met with lung cancer from weed?
    Smoking in public? How many people do you know have unwillingly gotten puffed with marijuana smoke?
    DUI? They shouldn't be driving under ANY substance.
    Fire codes? Wtf? Really?
    Medical/car insurance rates? It's none of their business.

    If you'd like to provide some actual reasons against it, I'll be here.

    Talk about a nanny state! Yuck.

    I'm outta here.
    Don't let the door hit you on the way out. All you've done is bitch and moan since you got here. You can't even stay on the topic of a thread.

    If you cannot conclusively prove that each and every single smoker anyways uses a vaporizer and only smokes in their home, you have no point to begin with.

    It's a controled substance which bars you from operating equipment or a vehicle while under the influence there-of. You really don't know much about this topic. Jesus dude get a clue and get back to me.

    Well let's start with the fact that the government body which will be regulating weed is the same body which currently regulates alcohol, tobacco...and firearms.

    Do you know the people I know? I could say anything and you have no way to verify it. Ask better questions.

    So you agree that smoking pot affects other people.

    It's the business of every signing party on that contract. If you are on a shared policy, your smoking is affecting others by raising their premiums.

    Against what? Smoking pot? I said I'm all for it.

    Your argument is just bull****. I fully support legalizing recreational pot immediately, but your argument is lame and pathetic.

    ****
    You smoking pot will affect others....but that's OK. If you don't want to pay a higher premium while on a shared policy with a smoker, get your own policy. If you don't like a building full of smoke, don't do business there. Other people will be affected....but that's OK. Other people are affected when I open-carry a gun...and that's OK too. While other people are affected...they are not harmed...or they at least have the ability to remove themselves from a situation if they feel they are being harmed.

    Of course, and most people are responsible with it, not operating equipment or vehicles while impaired. I'm not even sure what your BS argument is in the first place. People who violate laws and put others in danger should be prosecuted whether high or not. People who can be responsible with their drugs or liquor in the privacy of their home, should be able to do so.

    I'm still waiting for an explanation of the laundry list of reasons how "weed effects everyone" from your last post that I shot down.

    And where do alcoholics come in again?

    Marijuana (word) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The word was invented during the Reefer Madness era and has no real connection to any known language. I guess one of the best ways to demonize something is to create a foreign sounding name for it.

    You can watch Reefer Madness, the propaganda video that made its debut during the era of demonization, here. If it weren't so laughable I'd cry.

    Back in the day I smoked what my fiends called Australian Purple. Do you know what the correct name for that species is, if it's even a species at all? I honestly have no idea. It was smooth, and should cannabis become legal again that's what I may go looking for.

    I don't know, I am not a cannabis user myself. I can tell you that cannabis as a genus is divided into two smokeable subspecies: cannabis indica and cannabis sativa. Indicas tend to be more pain-killing due to their higher CBD content and induce relaxation, whereas sativas have higher THC content, are more mentally stimulating and are used for depression as well as spiritual purposes (like rastafarians, saddhus in India, etc.). Most strains are a mix of the two in different ratios.

    I just did a google search and it tells me that "purple" refers to "purple haze", which is an indica dominant strain. Smoothness is not determined by strain but whether or not it was cured following a harvest. Curing involves placing the recently dried flowers into an air tight jar where it remains from 1 month to 1 year. During that time the chlorophyls in the flowers break down, leading to a smoother smoke, but because the jar is air tight the active contituents do not oxidize. It's the chlorophyls that make people hack when they smoke and curing improves the quality.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
