if alcohol and cigarettes are legal, i see no reason why pot is ILlegal. so taxes, so what. that may help solve our towering debt problem.
california could sure use it. you pay taxes on everything else. also, mushrooms and the like too. if someone is dumb enough to eat a half ounce of
shrooms and lose their mind, that's their own fault. but i suppose in the age of the lawsuit, maybe the govt. is a little sketchy on the whole idea.
"i smoked pot, and i got...STONED! it was the scariest thing in my life!" and rather than use the experience for good and see it for what it was
and maybe never smoke weed again and cherish every moment of your life like they never have before (in other words, LEARN FROM IT), they will choose
to sue the hell out of the govt for legalizing it, and the companies that grow and distribute it...
as for doctors prescribing things that do you no good... THEY ALREADY DO THAT. cancer? here's an extreme dose of radiation that will probably kill
you. you're gonna die anyways, so ya know... i have very little respect for the medical industry, they are the biggest pushers of all. lonely?
depressed? well im alive aren't I? you can feel happy constanly and never ever have to feel bad again no matter what happens, try our drug! i see
commercials all day of someone frollicing happily through a field, what are these drugs for? ask your doctor! what the hell for? so they can make
money. i don't really think crack and coke and pcp and heroin stand a chance, because no good comes out of those. i think its funny the way govt
can regulate what states of mind are ok and which are not. you can get wasted on irish car bombs and go into a blind rage, buty it's legal. but you
cant chill and smoke a j and just kick it, THAT'S WRONG!! and if someone wants to jump off a building, chances are they would have done it sooner or
later, that's the way it is. pot grows out of the groud, alcohol is the manipulation of rotting plants, which sounds more appealing? i live in a
valley where approx. 30% of the population are meth addicts. and they roam the streets like zombies or ride bikes and aluminum cans are like gold.
meth is evil, it should be illegal, but you can get practically the same thing thru some diet plans in a brown little pill. pot is benign, the worst
thing that can happen if you smoke too much pot is you can get a headache, or pass out for 12 hours. im sure prolonged use could cause you to
develope lung cancer, as with smoking anything, but hey, you CAN EAT IT TOO. put it in your spagetti! what then, colon cancer? if you can't know
your limit, then you do need help. you can use anything as a crutch, work, sex, tv, religion, so why not weed too?
ps i dont necessarily think im right, but it just does not make any sense that this is against the law. and people do it because they want to (most
of them) not out of the thrill of doing something illegal. if it were like that, they'd probably rob a store, that would be a way bigger kick. and
in reguards to drugs triggering psychotic schizophrenia etc, that's oviously something wrong ANYWAYS there, and it would have happened eventually one
the point is, the only thing that would happen if pot was legalized, is that a whole lot of stoners would suddenly not be paranoid. paranoia effect
of a drug is cause by the fact that it is illegal and you could go to jail. what's the harm in seeing the world through a totally different
perspective? and yes chances are they would be made a lot safer. you would know what you are puting into your body rather than guessing.
so i'll break it down :
shrooms - yes
acid - yes
ecstacy - for me no, for other people sure why not
(that one is on the same level of brain destruction as alcohol and meth)
tweek - no way
pcp - nope
coke - ummm....
heroin - for suicidal people
so there, that's my take...
