    Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    "Why marijuana is safer than alcohol" I am posting this link as an educational tool for the misinformed. This article should not be read by anybody prone to addiction. Or children.

    Well c'mon, let's be fair, by "Sodium is more dangerous than pot", he might have been talking about "Na" (the chemical symbol), when it's in its purest form it happens to be highly explosive and deadly when put in water.

    Ah, yes, that must be what was meant, it shows that both Sodium and water are dangerous substances, and this would be a very good legalising argument...

    Also, food poisoning is not uncommon, but there is not a single case known to have been the result of ingesting Cannabis, so food is far more dangerous than pot.
    Those puritarian, fascist tee-totallers are either ignorant or purposefully withholding such vital information. It's political, man, it's the establishment oppressing the masses by keeping them away from the good stuff.
    Yeah, that's what it is, pass me the pipe...

    No matter how many times you call the argument stupid, I'm still right and you're still wrong. If you really want to convince me, go drink two gallons of water in 15 minutes and tell me whether you survive or not.

    Do I sense some sarcasm? Or is it exhaustion from irrational discourse?
    Ooh ooh I know, pick me ! It's the latter

    That's right.
    So are you saying the externalities of alcohol use are acceptable?
    All the regulations, sales restrictions and taxation have failed to keep people safe from causing damage to themselves and others through irrational, addictive overconsumption.

    If they don't have the money and the god damned mealy mouthed pious hypocritical socialists who babble endlessly about "externalities" are too damned cheap to contribute their own money to charity, I guess they die in the gutter.

    That's okay with me. The stupid exist to be punished.

    Why should I be concerned about this?

    The community benefits by learning that it's members are in no wise obligated to run their lives as a charity for friggin' parasites.
