    Re: Miracle Marijuana

    5 reasons to legalize Marijuana in order of relevance to me.
    1. Proven medical value
    2. Personal freedom
    3. Industrial Hemp
    4. Incarceration of nonviolent users/growers/sellers
    5. Financial gain

    So, digsbe, were you convinced one way or another?

    My other point is that how can I believe anything that the war on drugs cottage industry says after claiming that pot is addictive on the dea website. This is simply not true, but no real government study will ever be done to present it in a non biased way. Too many people rely on pot being illegal to pay their country club dues.
    If you present your argument like this, you will HELP your position. Well thought out and on target. Cease the anecdotal evidence and the presentation of inaccuracies and comparisons, and you present a good case.


    OTC cough syrup is more dangerous than pot.
    THIS is the kind of stuff that does not help. It is a skewed comment that is not entirely accurate.

If you didn't mean that, or if you no longer believe it, then I think we are probably in agreement on what kind of regulations there should be after all.
    CAN. That's the word that I used as a qualifier. It CAN affect me and others around you. In a sense we do agree.


    Yes you can. People use drugs and don't cause other people any problems all the time. Drug use alone can't affect you. Drug use and subsequent irresponsible behavior can.
    Drug use CAN lead to problematic behavior.

    Pot also helps to control road rage, believe it or don't believe it, Cap'n.
    I'm glad you have a perfect driving record, but you're doing it again. Driving under the influence of pot is dangerous. It alters your perceptions and reaction times. Giving credence to an opposing view without presenting the realities of this creates misrepresentation and hurts your credibility.

    Free clue: It certainly does contain addictive substances. It attaches and excites cannabiod receptors in the brain, similar to what opiates do to opioid receptors. This can cause an addictive reaction in some folks. You are providing incorrect information.

This could occur, anyway, but marijuana use can hasten this developement. If one already has the symptoms of a mental illness, marijuana (as with most substances like this) can worsen these symptoms. On some rare occasions, marijuana might create some of these mental illness issues, but this is very rare, far more rare than that of other substances.

    Your article misrepresents facts.

    Not very, it appears:

    "THC's effects on road-tracking after doses up to 300 g/kg never exceeded alcohol's at bacs of 0.08 g%; and, were in no way unusual compared to many medicinal drugs' (Robbe, 1994; Robbe and O'Hanlon, 1995; O'Hanlon et al., 1995). Yet, THC's effects differ qualitatively from many other drugs, especially alcohol. Evidence from the present and previous studies strongly suggests that alcohol encourages risky driving whereas THC encourages greater caution, at least in experiments. Another way THC seems to differ qualitatively from many other drugs is that the former's users seem better able to compensate for its adverse effects while driving under the influence."

    Marijuana And Actual Driving Performance

    I tried to find a link to this on the NHTSA's website, but they seem to have deleted it (which is one reason that I don't consider the US government to be a reliable source about drugs, they have a history of ignoring and trying to cover up anything that doesn't support "Drugs are bad, M'Kay").
