Before it becomes an issue, and it almost always does, a friendly reminder:
The Discussion Of "Illegal Activity" On The Above Network Sites
And, most recently:
The Discussion Of "Illegal Activity" On The Above Network Sites: UPDATE
Sorry for what amounts to a topical digression, but we've been getting so many "I've been smoking it for years", "whoa, I'm so wasted" and "I grow it in my back yard" posts that it really is necessary to point out what awaits such posts and members who insist on making them.
Thank you so much to everyone who has stayed on topic and not taken us down that oft-traveled road.
It really does make a difference.

So how do you discuss the conspiracies involved with America's War on Drugs then?

Sorry guys, but it is really difficult for me not to conclude that this is only a ploy by Congressman Paul to gain more attention as part of his four year long campaign for presidency, and I must say, this is a pretty darn good one! I mean, he didn't just outsmart every politician that ever lived with this ploy, he also trumped every previous classical example of the popular expression "too good to be true". How on earth did a guy with ideas such as he allow himself to become a victim of government-related media suppression during the '08 campaign? What will happen during the 2012 Campaign? Will they suppress him again? Will the earth still function as we know it? Will Ron Paul actually re-set the presidential election day voting record currently held by President Obama? This, my friends, remains to be seen. But I do know this, president or not, Ron Paul may be the lasting image that represents what "We The People" really stand for.

Also to add to the ridiculousness, hemp also falls into the same category and you can't even get stoned on it. But you can use it too replace many inferior and toxic substances produced by industry.

3) And for my general argument all the time- What would we do when employers make it prohibited in their employees but everyone is legally allowed to smoke it? What would we do when all the depressed unemployed people start deciding to smoke pot because it makes them feel better? Would it help them go out and get jobs?
4) What about using it while driving? Or pregnant? Or in public?
