Saying things like "it's no different than alcohol" is demonstrably false, since one is legal, and one is not. It is a bad argument.
    The orginal argument "it's no different than alcohol" was a moral argument talking about its effects on a person. The legal argument was incorrectly introduced.

    That you find people to be criminals who smoke pot is a fair and accurate, though misguided, opinion.

    Technically, that is true as long as pot is illegal, those who possess (sp?) and partake are committing a crime. It is not an opinion, in my opinion. It is a stated fact. However, to be a "criminal," per se, is to have been convicted of a/the crime, is it not?

    Much like doing 70 in a 55 is a crime. You're not a criminal until you pay the ticket.

    That's the point. Good, wholesome, productive, loving, responsible, American citizens who partake, in their private hours, are often branded criminal, simply because of their semi-harmless pleasure. Most of the negative things about pot could be rectified overnight simply by legalizing it. It's just stupid.

    Anyone who chooses tobacco, alcohol, pharmaceuticals, to enjoy their life with, yet demonizes and criticizes the pot smoker is nothing more and nothing less than a blathering hypocrite.

    But, there is a yen and a yang. Both are making boo-coo money keeping it the way it is.

    I think that brown Mexican ditch weed should be illegal.

    B.C. bud should be decriminalized.

    People who smoke pot are heroes in the face of extremist political repression.

    "Civil Disobedience" by Henry David Thoreau says it all about the correct response to the injustice of criminalized marijuana.

    Of all the issues in the world, all the things wrong with society and government, to focus on marijuana laws is one of the stupidest things ever.

    But it is also one of the clearest issues to resolve.

    I agree with you.

    The police and DEA have much more serious things to focus on.
