    It was a joke......
    The only thing that will make them stop is incarceration or when it is no longer profitable.....
    If it is legalized, profits will plummet.....

    But I digress.... t'was just an observation that likely wasted even more bandwidth.

    I still don't think that legalizing pot is the way to go.

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    So far it is slightly over four to one here in favor of legal pot.

    It makes me proud to be an American.

    I would like to also say that American pot growers have been trailblazers (especially california) in growing even better pot than any where in the world.

    Thank you Calfornia.

    The pot that is being consumed today is very strong. It has a negative impact on mental illness. Here is an article by the National Institute of Drug Abuse

    "THC acts upon specific sites in the brain, called cannabinoid receptors, kicking off a series of cellular reactions that ultimately lead to the “high” that users experience when they smoke marijuana. Some brain areas have many cannabinoid receptors; others have few or none. The highest density of cannabinoid receptors are found in parts of the brain that influence pleasure, memory, thoughts, concentration, sensory and time perception, and coordinated movement.1

    Not surprisingly, marijuana intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty in thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Research has shown that marijuana’s adverse impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off.2 As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time.

    Research on the long-term effects of marijuana abuse indicates some changes in the brain similar to those seen after long-term abuse of other major drugs. For example, cannabinoid withdrawal in chronically exposed animals leads to an increase in the activation of the stress-response system3 and changes in the activity of nerve cells containing dopamine.4 Dopamine neurons are involved in the regulation of motivation and reward, and are directly or indirectly affected by all drugs of abuse

    I disagree. I think it could be used in mental illnesses especially for people who have lost their appetites.

    Pot gives you the munchies.

    Do you have anything to back that up?......

    When I was in school,.. stoners used to gather and invite me along with comments like,.. "hey man,.. you want to to get stupid with us?"

    Seeing what their grades and learning habits were at the time,... I decided early on that it wasn't the right path for me.

    The results of this poll tells me that there are still a lot of people "getting stupid" these days.

    Oh well,... it is what it is.
