    You can tell who the potheads are by their fervent defense of legalization.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Well, I can take American's remark as humour, and at least it's related to the topic, but your suggestive comment crosses the line.
    I find this rather insulting.

    Does it matter to you if I am insulted by the majority of your posts?

    Or is it inconsequential?

    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    Wow, I thought I was being friendly on the one, very recent occasion we have crossed paths, I had no idea you "are insulted by the majority of (my) posts".
    Have I made any suggestions about what you may or may not do or have done in your private life, or made any negative references towards your person? I don't remember even having commented in a negative way on any of your posts, before now.

    Or have we argued with each other before? it cannot have been the 'majority' of my posts, or I would remember.

    Is there no data on adult 'heavy' users, or have you not found any which show how "dangerous" it is?
    I do think heavy cannabis use is of concern for adolescents, it can interfere with personality development and, as the studies suggest, this may later become an issue of psychological well-being.
    You are welcome to show how damaging cannabis is generally, but using material which references this age group specifically is not convincing.

    Both you and marduc pointed out that frequent use can trigger depression but others denies it.
    Because you two admit this does it mean I must never mention again?
    What a bizarre question.
    Mention it as often as you like, but it is a marginal risk. And the keyword is "trigger".
    Let's keep in perspective.

    Trigger as in the same way tobacco can 'trigger' cancer,emphysema,heart disease etc etc

    Once again do you think that there is a cut off point where the adolescent becomes grown up and thus resistent to the effects of cannabis.
    to use the example of tobacco again,children were far nore damaged by secondary tobacco smoke adults but adults WERE affected.
