My B-I-L was complaining about that after I made a remark about some states wanting to allow guns in Bars !! He commented well then on the other had you have "recreational Marijuana" ! (shaking my head) I remarked, but I don''t know of 100s of people being killed by people smoking MJ !! He said just check your police records !! OMG !! are you kiddin me !!?? Gee-zus ! Let's look at alcohol which is accepted my most... how many people does that kill each year due to drunk driving ? and we want to compare these both to MJ?? THAT's how looney the right thinks !!
F-ing brainwashed, brain-dead or something near it !!
Loc: Louisville, KY
Dave, I totally agree. Alcohol causes more problems IMO than marijuana. I don't ever recall a person high on it causing much (if any) problems. But when I locked up drunks..ugh...freaking bunch of jerks who loved to fight (some not all).
I really wish all states would at LEAST pass the medical marijuana law. I know it would help my mother with her pain without her having to take all those damn pills..damn arthritis.
And those cancer patients would have a better way to deal with chemo.
Colorado has (from what I have read) done it right...tax it and watch their revenue go up.
I don't smoke or use MJ- (never have even in college in the late 60s early 70s) BUT I will defend anyone else's use of it- THEIR choice ! - it's not as bad as alcohol which destroys 1000s of lives every year. Sure some abuse MJ and become pot heads but : 1. that doesn't kill or usually hurt anyone else, and 2. some abuse potato chips - we going to ban those and everything else abused too ?!!
I totally 1000% agree about the medical purposes !! Kee-rist there's MUCH worse Rxs than MJ !! at least it's a natural "organic" product !!
I haven't smoked pot in a long long long time. I just don't have the time for it, and I don't want to do something illegal--not any more, anyways. But then, I very very rarely drink any alcohol, for the same reason: I don't have the time for it.
Now, when I retire, all of that will change, no doubt. And I want to be able to choose my high. When I was in college, things were more or less dominated by the heavy body highs of black Afghan hash. I preferred the headier highs of red Lebanese hash. And green Moroccan kieff was even headier--superb. I have no idea how all of this translates into current pot flavors. But I'm willing to find out this summer on vacation in the Rockies.

Did a bit o' "Sampling" in my time The my favorite will always be "Panama Red" but the highest I've ever been was on "Vietnamese Green"
Stuff looks like Home-Grown but the similarity ends there.
Brought it to a few parties as kind of a joke, twisted one up between 1/2 dozen peeps, and challenged anyone that was still straight enough to twist up another to have at it... ...never got any takers...
