    Re: Medical Marijuana

    I am against the legalization of any illicit drug, in fact, if I had my way, I wouldn't want tobacco or alcohol legal either. If you have to ingest, inject, smoke or snort any substance to feel good about yourself, you've got some issues. That said, I think the way most states that have legalized medical marijuana have gone about it is the most piss-poor method imaginable, we all know that people are forging prescriptions or just buying it illegally out the back door of dispensaries and it's being ignored by the authorities. If we're going to allow it, it has to be much, much, much better controlled.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I do not believe it should be available. I have such little faith in my fellow men and women that I am not comfortable with people having it available to them.

    Well, I don't see how it can be any worse than trusting them with guns, 2-ton machines that move at 70+MPH, your bank account info or your waiter every time you give him your credit card. Or finally, for that matter, the leader of every country with nuclear missiles. Compared to those I'd say medical marijuana is downright Disney friendly.

    What if I just like the taste of beer, and I enjoy the effects of alcohol? I don't need the alcohol, but it's enjoyable and I'm not harming anyone.

    I DON'T trust most people in those situations either, Cardinal.

    My problem with marijuana in general is the same issue I have with narcotics, alcohol, and other substances..... They create an altered mental state which inhibits people's ability to make sound decisions instantly.

    ...if used immoderately or in unwise circumstances. Nearly every object or activity, used unwisely or immoderately, can have negative consequences. If you limit the freedom of someone to do something on your rationale alone, then no activity or object could be permitted to exist.

    And of all those things, marijuana is historically pretty near the bottom of the list as demonstrable destructiveness goes.

    How about we just agree that people who hold jobs that can directly endanger another human being should be on as few mind altering substances as possible.
