    You think you're clever but you're really just demonstrating that you can't read.

    Hey we should test this. Have some people smoke a pipe and see what happens.

    Am I the only one who sees the hypocrisy in saying that drugs are illegal, yet an addictive substance that is proven to cause millions of deaths each year, is legal? I think that's something supports my claims that humans are the most ridiculous creatures on Earth. If people have the right to slowly kill themselves, then I have the right to shoot up on heroin. Personally, I don't really care about restrictions on poison.

    Ok if anti-ban is represented by folks who are for the full legalization of all hard drugs, then **** smokers and ban that ****.

    I just can't make the leap for smoking a cig outside to shoot up heroin. Big, world of difference there.

    You just don't get it do you? On one hand you get on your high horse about smokers and how vile and disgusting they are, but at the same time you talk almost reverently about the awesome creativity of drug users and how there should be no laws prohibiting what you put into your body as part of your exploration of life (or whatever) and you accuse me of intellectual dishonesty? I have a question though, if drugs are so awesome and enlightening, why did you get your knickers in a twist when you thought I suggested you were on them? Your positions are so contradictory it's just laughable. If I'm clever, it's because you make it easy for me.

    Unfair ?
    true
    And its also unfair that they pollute the air and the surrounding surfaces.
    I propose higher taxes on these weeds, including marijuana(which should be legal by now), this to pay for some of the clean-up.

    You know if they legalised smoking everywhere, at every age, then it would deter people from using their cigarettes. As cigarette ownership goes up, it been shown that smoking goes down.
