    mad Re: Should marijuana be legalized?

    The History Channel did a great series on the origins of marijuana as relates to this great country of ours.

    It revealed that the calamitous assault on legal marijuana was started by racists in the Southwest area of our country. Their target was Mexicans.

    The anti-pot movement has turned into a cottage industry. The DEA has lots of employees who keep their swimming pools filled and their country club dues paid by plain out lying about it. One of the biggest lies is that it is addictive.

    DEA agents are very well paid and reap many benefits as a result of their lies.

    Decriminalized? Perhaps.

    Legalized? I would rather not.

    When you can prove that MJ was the reason they were lazy losers, then you might have something. Until then, they are the source of their own problems and shouldn't be allowed to blame their worthlessness on inanimate objects like MJ or anything else.

    Don't need to prove it. There's lots of data out there that shows regular use creates an attitude of ambivalence toward leading a productive life. If you don't believe me look it up.

    I have looked it up. There is nothing but a bunch of assumptions based on correlation/causation fallacies. Check the IOM and the AMA, they have no evidence MJ causes amotivational syndrome. It's one of many empty bull**** chicken little claims people use to try and demonize what they don't like/understand.

    And the correct solution to that problem is to stop giving them our dimes, since no one has a prior claim to my money for their little problems that exceeds my ownership of that money.

    If someone is too lazy to work, let them starve and beg.

    Don't steal money from citizens just to throw at other people, stealing is wrong.

    Not to mention unconstitutional.

    You are using an assumption like an assertion.
