    Re: Miracle Marijuana

    I honestly have mixed feelings about medical marijuana and legalizing marijuana. I guess I'm neither for or against it so I voted "other." Anyone want to persuade me either which way?

    It's none of the government's business what a medical professional prescribes to their patient, nor is it any of the government's business what an adult puts into their own body.

    Let me try to collect my thoughts into a reasonable argument.

    First, against marijuana being criminal from a personal use perspective:
    1. marijuana is slightly addictive and smoking it can cause health problems for the user, but these factors do not exceed those found with alcohol and cigarettes, which are legal
    2. smoking marijuana responsibly does not harm anyone but the person smoking it
    3. therefore, there is no good reason that smoking marijuana should be a criminal offense


    Second, against the production and distribution of marijuana being a criminal offense
    1. The War of Drugs spends a lot of money to little effect - many are caught, but the drugs still flow because of the demand
    2. The existence of the War on Drugs drives up prices which makes it more criminally lucrative
    3. The existence of the War on Drugs creates the need for organized criminal enterprises to subvert interdiction
    4. Therefore, the War on Drugs creates crime and criminal enterprises.

    PS.... Commercial grade mexican in 1975 was 100.00 per lb and 160-180 for a kilo. A "matchbox" of weed was 2-3 dollars and you had to go to "the other side of the tracks" to buy quantities that small. Me and my friends would give away matchboxes should the friend be out of weed. Fat four finger ounces (lids) were only 10.00 bucks. Heck, I spilled more than a matchbox of weed without ever bending over to pick it up. If you bought doobage for 50.00 a pound you gotta be at least 75 years old.

    Back on topic. Weed is addictive. I know. Any questions? Good. Case closed. Have a nice weekend class and remember. Monday. Class starts at 8:00 am. Bring pen and paper.
    When I got married in key west in 1969 a "lid" ( a prince albert pipe tabocco can filled with pot) was fifteen dollars. A pound of good snap, crackle, and pop, mexican weed was eighty dollars.

    And what debate have I won? If you weren't so focused on presenting the "pothead" agenda, you'd see I was PRO-legalization. It's folks like you that damage the pro- argument. A "pothead's" personal opinion is irrelevant. He just wants pot to be legalized so he can get high without consequences. That is NOT a good argument for legalization. There have been plenty of good arguments for legalization presented in this thread. Why don't you read a few of them.

    I don't completely agree with this. A certain amount of regulation is necessary, because what you put in your body CAN affect me and others around you.

    Not by itself it can't. Affecting you would require some other action on the part of the user besides simply putting drugs into their body - say like driving. The only way you can even remotely say that someone else's drug use (by itself) can affect you is when taxpayers have to foot medical bills caused by drug use, but that's a slippery slope because I can complain about McDonald's and HFCS just the same. That's more of an issue with the health care system than with someone else's drug use affecting you.

    Nope. The way I figure it, the less other people smoke, the more available for me.

    I'll take that even further - it's nobody's business what other people's doctors prescribe to them, and it's nobody's business what other adults put into their own bodies.
