    Holy hell. What respect I had for you just plummeted to the deep, dark depths.

    IMO, anyone who tattle-tales on people who aren't hurting anyone is pretty low.

    Totally! It's illegal so we must tattle on others! I mean, this one time a guy I worked with in DC said something about doing it doggie-style and I called the cops on his ass. Having sex doggie style is illegal in DC after all, and we MUST enforce the laws!

    I think people who can't keep their prying noses out of other peoples PRIVATE lives, should have their prying noses cut off.

    While I wouldn't make that particular report myself, I think it's dangerous to equate reporting criminal activity to being a tattle-tale. If there were young children in the house, however, I think I probably would.

    I wouldn't call the police if I saw pot smokers. I would if I saw a pot sale and get the license plates and stuff. They need to enforce the laws, not just the ones we don't like or feel aren't all that important. Pot is an illegal mind altering substance, and keeping it off the streets should be a priority. My uncle is currently serving time in prison for selling drugs, and he got caught through racial profiling and snitching. I don't want someone violating drug laws to be teaching our children.

    Teachers are held to a respectable amount of moral conduct. It is not excessive, but it certainly is not to the standards as everyone else. People need to realize that.

    They should enforce the ones that will actually help make our society better. And get rid of the rest of them.

    Pot is an illegal mind altering substance, and keeping it off the streets should be a priority.
    No, it shouldn't be a priority at all. It should be a non-issue.

    My uncle is currently serving time in prison for selling drugs, and he got caught through racial profiling and snitching.
    I'm sorry to hear that your uncle is a victim of our warped, damaging, morally-reprehensible money sink called the "war on drugs".

    I don't want someone violating drug laws to be teaching our children.
    Why not?

    Getting potheads off the streets and out of our schools does help society. I don't want someone stupid enough to smoke pot to be teaching my kids.

    Don't expect me to be crying about that.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Funny, considering most of my friends are teachers and all either have or do smoke regularly.

    How do you feel about people who drink alcohol?
