    I know too many people from both groups of abusers, and to be honest, the alcohol abusers are harder to spot in general everyday life until they get to a certain point, when the physical manifestations of their addiction become very obvious.
    I wonder if the fact that alcohol abuse does have those physical manifestations is part of what I see. It's easier to hide pot abuse for extended periods. No one really knows how much you actually do.

    To a degree, this is true. But there is a period of time that the physical manifestations of alcoholism are not easily spotted. During that time, alcoholics typically hide their abuse very well.

    Once the physical manifestations are present they won't hide it as much, so when people think of alcoholics, they think of those obvious ones. They aren't thinking of the functional alcoholic who don't have overt symptoms.

    There is no logical argument against Pot, and even if it was such a bad thing for people I still believe it aint worse then Cigarets of Alchohol and its a persons right to do as they please with their own bodies.

    Not necessarily. I've seen a lot of kids (gang-involved) get high before going to commit a serious/violent crime, like a drive-by shooting. It lowers inhibitions in many cases, just like alcohol does.

    That is a common perception, though...that pot makes people mellow. It can also make them paranoid, risk-taking, and difficult to deal with. Depends on the person.

    adjusting my drool bucket long enough to say

    I don't smoke pot any more, but I smoked quite a bit in my youth. That, as well as hash and opium. I've snorted coke, I've dropped acid, eaten shrooms, ingested quite a few pharmecuticals and am certainly no stranger to the effects of various drugs.

    As to those who state that pot turns people into drooling idiots, I can only question whether they know the difference between correlation and causation?

    That said, I vote for legalization. If someone is going to profit from the colossal uselessness of a sizable portion of the populace, I'd prefer that it were the American taxpayer instead of terrorist criminal gangs.
    I'm pretty sure the Beatles smoked dope. You talking about acting this way while smoking or after effects?

    What you may be speaking of is being mellow, and I'm all for it.

    Re: A question for people who don't smoke

    We all know that I am a cigarette hater, but for whatever reason, I don't hate marijuana smoke. In fact, I like the smell of marijuana smoke. I DO NOT smoke it. I tried it when I was much, much younger (last time was before I graduated high school (1986)--a total of 3 times). I have zero interest in doing it now.

    I would support legalizing marijuana. The illegalization is costing our government and people's lives way too much.

    Yeah, it is my business. A law telling you rather you can smoke or not IS my business.

    I love people who think that since they believe something, there can be no logical argument against it. Of course there are logical arguments against it. It's harmful and addictive and can influence people to make mistakes that can harm others(ie, impaired judgment). The question is whether those reasons are enough to outlaw it or not.
