    If you look at the historical reasons for why pot was outlawed, the reasons are just as stupid as the ones you hear from the anti-gun crowd. It's a bunch of hysteria that doesn't add up in the end... but as history shows, it's not about making sense, it's about which group can shout the loudest that gets the laws passed.
    There ya go buddy

    Eh ****, I think it may be a city ordinance, wich is likly because the state doesn't ban it.

    South Dakota Codified Laws Text Search

    nope, not there either....idk, but people grow personal use tobacco around here and the cops allow it.

    No one's selling it () so the government doesn't care.

    One of the very few good things coming out of the Lakota Nation (and believe me, it's a short list) is cheap tobacco products. Yeah, you have to go to the reservation to buy, which is where exercising your right to keep and carry comes in, but you can walk out with a carton for about $15-20.

    As a side note, one of the other few quality products the Lakota Nation produces for sale is choice jail bait, but that's another story.

    I miss the days when I was in the Navy, and we could at times get cartons of smokes at sea for 4 dollars a carton. They had that sale right before getting home once. I took 2 sea bags full of cigarettes off the ship then.

    Why are you against allowing one substance to stop being banned by the government, but not for a similar one to be taken off the shelves?
    Well, its kind of the slippery slope dont ya think?

    If you know alcohol isnt good for you either, then why would you want to allow the legalization of other drugs that do nothing but harm people?

    Just b/c 1 is legal, means you have to legalize all? That doesnt make any sense to me. I would rather draw a line in the sand at alcohol, then to continously move that line b/c someone thinks someone else is a hypocrit.

    Sorry, but if being labeled a hypocrit is the best someone can do, then so be it. Life goes on.

    All the folks I know who are on drugs are worthless people who complain about working or are now divorced.

    Drugs ruin lives, whether it is alcohol, heroin, or dope.

    This entire arguement in my mind, is one of feeling better about not considering ourselves hypocrits b/c alcohol is legal and pot isnt, so therefore people want to legalize all drugs.

    I am sorry, I just dont care to live in a society where condoning such things is OK. I say draw the line at alcohol, b/c that has ruined enough lives, why start down a whole new path of misery with another drug? And then another drug, then another drug, etc, etc.

    I find an overwhelming correlation b/w immature adults and drug use. This is from personal experience from friends I have lost due to drugs and friends who are now dead thanks to drugs.

    There is nothing good that comes along with using drugs.

    Not really, but I can go with it. I see it as the right to do whatever you wish with your own body. My body does not belong to the Nanny state. So if I want to smoke pot it's really no one else's business provided I am not harming their life, liberty or property.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    How is defending the right to privacy not everyone's business?

    Sure, what you personally choose to do with your individual body is not for public consumption unless you choose, but since everyone has to abide by the same rules, how are those rules not everyone's business?

    It should be. But apparently some people don't think I have a right to privacy.

    Not sure what you mean. "Rules" that tell me what I can and cannot do to me are immoral.
