I think it's a fact prescription drugs lead addiction, overdoses, and car accidents.

Its hard for a leech to create tax money when they are living on SS, getting Medicaid and probably hitting up food banks too.

I hope you know that everyone pays into SS with their own jobs. If you are living on SS, that means you just spent your whole life paying into the system. Your point shows a startling ignorance in how assistance programs work in this country.

I bet you also don't realize that people on benefits, at a minimum, produce sales tax for the government. AND you seem to be ignoring the fact that there are many Americans who have a full time job and get returns for their income taxes.

No problem. I think its commendable when a youngster admits his confusion. Its actually a sign of maturity!

If you think that everyone getting SS is doing so with merit you are insane.

Also, you said prescriptions lead in recreational drug use, you are crazy if you think that is the case, more people use Marijuana than prescription drugs for recreation, where are you getting your numbers

I never made that claim (of course there is such a thing as SS fraud, but that isn't the majority), but YOU definitely made the claim that people on SS are leaches.

I never said that.

No not at all.

What youll realize is that Trump had to say SOME things to placate the voters so that he could get elected.

Politicians cant keep %100 of there promises. Some things they say because they sound good at the time.

That goes for Trump too.

But we need to get behind him and hope he ends the scourge of marijuaana dependancy Asap.

I said most people who die of recreational drug use are using prescriptions by far, most people addicted to drugs areally abusing prescriptions. From aderol, xanex, opioids etc.

Opioid and heroin use is also the largest increase in traffic fatalities and in many states lead traffic fatalities.

I sourced the info from drug abuse foundations even.

That whole rant you posted looks like it was written under the influence of marijuana. It makes no sense at all.



Makes perfect sense, it's just that it has many valid points that you refuse to acknowledge them because your ego won't allow you to admit when you are wrong.

That or the info is too much for you to handle and it went right over your head.

Proof of your misunderstanding is the fact that you assume it was written under the influence but I was completely sober. You really shouldn't assume anything because it makes you look uneducated, along with all your misspellings in your thread posts. If you want to be taken seriously then you should learn how to spell and comprehend what people write because you obviously just say what you want to and think you are right when you are wrong.

Bigger problem than marijuana dependency is alcohol dependency. That should be eradicated before anything else. People who drink alcohol are 100% more likely to harm others than those on marijuana. Marijuana actually has health benefits if you really took the time to research it. There are different strains that help those with anxiety, lack of appetite, paranoia, insomnia, migraines etc etc. But of course you are probably stuck in your old ways and will never understand the benefits. You would probably rather crack open a beer to help you with your problems, or even lab made synthetic drugs that cause more symptoms than help. You should try to do some research before you say anything else because you clearly have no idea what you are talking about and just speak off biased opinion without any facts.

The scourge of marijuana dependency? This, sir, is totally ridiculous. The medicinal benefits have been scientifically proven over and over again. The governments of Israel, The UK, Germany, Italy, Canada, and even to some degree the US have all funded further scientific study of the benefits of cannabis for arthritic pain, cancer, Parkinson's, epilepsy and a whole slew of other ailments where weed has been shown to have positive medical impacts. So your Jeff Session quote is completely false.

Furthermore States with recreational marijuana laws are reaping the benefits in another way: taxable revenue. People love smoking pot, so people spend money on pot. In return states are seeing huge increases in tax revenue that is in turn being put towards spending on things like education, public transportation, and infrastructure.

If every state in the Union legalized pot tomorrow crime would drop, the black market for weed would disappear, tax revenue would increase by billions and the citizens would probably be a lot more happy and comfortable. Stocks in Hostess, Kellogs, Hershey, and Digorno would see a nice increase, too.

You're also forgetting the simple fact that there is exactly 0.00 dollars budgeted through the end of this year to do anything related with attacking State's marijuana laws. Zero, zip, nada. Congress stepped on the Attorney General's ideas about a new war on weed.

Nothing will change with State's weed laws.

unfortunately this guy you are trying to convince is already stuck in his biased ways. He doesn't understand the benefits and never will. It's like talking to a stone wall. And even though you make a very clear and concise post with many valid points he will claim it makes no sense. Easy cop out.

What a joke. There's so much weed doom porn right now. Every day, High Times and Norml post one of two stories: the Trump administration is going to lock everyone up for weed and/or it's OK, nothing to worry about.

The cat's out of the bag. Get a life. This is doom porn at its finest. Even if Trump wanted to shut weed down (he doesn't), he wouldn't be able to. Maybe stop spreading nonsense and look at what has actually happened.

It was a typo/autocorrect. It means we need to look at addiction issues as reality not as what subtance people are using. The addiction issues are the problem and where to address. Your not supposed to drive impaired in anyway, whether your exhausted, sick, on pain pills, smoking blunts, or pounding beers. Once you get in trouble the hospitals should do a blood test if there is property damage or bodily harm. Every substance should have a blood tolerance level.

Do you disagree the police should have a way to check opioid levels in blood in the field even though it's a bigger statistical problem than marijuana?


Probably the only way to check opioids in blood would require taking a blood sample and submitting it a hospital lab. I thought we were talking about marijuana?

Pills are always a problem. Edible MJ [e.g., gummies] has user problems. Users are sometimes unaware that the human body requires time to digest what is eaten. Nothing happens after 10 minutes or so, so they eat another and maybe another. Eventually, the effects are felt but by then they have 2x or 3x the dose in their system. Not directly fatal that I know of but certainly not a good situation.
