    i believe we need daily updates on how "patriotic" pot heads are in paying taxes on pot, at pot shops.

    Well, immoral? No? But that still doesn't mean the pill may not be the medically more appropriate prescription.

    Marijuana is not a panacea, its still basically bad for you and something that can be abused. Its medicinal uses are relatively limited. That being said, if you and your doctor think its necessary, fine....but you get the point, right? You take aspirin before morphine.....

    Only "original sinners" claim that potentially, seed bearing plant is bad and not good; should we confide in their sincerity over that of a god?

    It's about the side effects. The two drops I currently take don't have any effect on my mental and cognitive abilities. The use of marijuana cannot say the same thing.

    My main problem is the mind altering affects of marijuana when used. IF, and only IF, the chemical could be extracted in such a way that there were no mind-altering side effects and the facilities growing the plant were not capable of turning the organic material into a version with mind-altering capabilities I would CONSIDER it.

    Side effects make it immoral?

    It's the particular side-effect.... the altered mental state that comes with the use of marijuana, that is the problem.

Personally, I'd love to be able to get off all four medications if it was possible. Hell, I don't even take pain killers unless it's absolutely necessary. I had 31 teeth pulled over 8 days back in 2004 without filling either pain medication prescription that I was given because I don't like the side effects.
    That's a wise choice, avoiding unnecessary medications. What does moral/immoral have to do with it though?

    So you are 100% certain that you could deal with ANY situation that might arise while you were in that state? You'd be willing to write your last will and testament, get married, or do a business deal in that state, correct? If not then the altered mental state is immoral.

    With marijuana, it's about the lack of capability to make proper decisions and take care of oneself while in that state. The altered mental state created by use places one in a position of abdicating their responsibility to take care of themselves in case of an emergency. That abdication, without previously ensuring someone else is there to make those decisions for you is IMMORAL on its very basis.
