Digital Communist: Anyone who defends marijuana being illegal while not actively fighting to criminalize alcohol is a hypocrite.

...or just being an obedient little republican automaton.

Fark anyone who thinks they can tell me what I can and can't do in private, that doesn't hurt other people.


Calm down. Self medicate before you get all schizoid.

Hey, Valdes, is correlation the same thing as causation? I can't remember.

People like you are just as bad as creationists.

I loved the reporter, "Note how long it takes the guard to scrape the sticky marijuana buds up off the felt playing surface of the card table."

You could almost hear the reporter drooling.

/mmmm sticky marijuana buds.

Valdes: The Minnesota Department of Human Services estimates that one percent, or approximately two million Americans, struggle with this addiction. This pathological impulse is defined as "the inability to resist impulses to gamble, leading to severe personal or social consequences, such as halitosis."

That's comedy gold, right there. Forgive my previous post. I thought you were serious.

This addicition can be one of the easiest forms of addicition to hide from friends and family. Addict can shut the door and erase their internet files to hide any evidence that they have been on line. Help Guide studied 389 addicts who sought care at a health clinic. Only 31 participants reported that they were addicted, but these 31 were pathological addicts. The study indicated that while this addiction was the least common type of addiction noted, those who indulged on the internet were more likely to develop other unreleated problematic habits, such as alchoholism, hard drug use, or marijuana addiction.

See my post above, that was my take on Val- sheltered Christian with a lack of critical thinking skills and a whole load of bookmarks to parrot.

Razorwolf: Judasbot: OK...I realize that the farker was dumb for doing this, but..."because he used it as a bet, he could also be facing charges of 'intent to distribute'." That's how the get you big time. They make shiat up that doesn't pertain, just so you can sit in jail longer. That's just wrong.

I wouldn't say "made-up" per se. The law is probably written loosely enough to permit the charge.

I mean if you're having sex with someone other than your legally-wedded wife and not in the missionary position, in your bedroom, in the bed, under the covers, with the lights off and the shades drawn, then technically you can actually serve time. It doesn't mean the cops made it up. That's pothead talk.


Whoa, whoa, whoa...wait a minute. What a man and a woman and the bearded lady do with the World's Tallest Midget in the bedroom alone with a jar of mayonaise and a donkey is their business. Right?

/that's pothead talk, mister

Valdes

Of the 5,833 participants, 3,185 identified themselves as addicts, while 2,648 reported they did not indulge.


I find it interesting that EVERYONE is either an addict or didn't indulge... are you including everyone who ever tried marijuana in the addict group?
 
2008-07-25 06:41:31 PM  
Valdes: 20% of teenagers that are addicts do consider suicide. Some of them with toasters. Others with blunt force, such as hammers to the sternum.

There may be something to that - I read in a magazine once that 18% of all teens that smoke pot try to cut their own heads off with chainsaws.

Oh, Valdes, now you're slamming on Internet addiction?! Now you've gone too far!!!~??!?!

Man, Valdes' troll-fu is strong. People are biting everywhere.
 
2008-07-25 06:44:00 PM  
Valdes: The addict needs to be willing to accept the fact that he or she is in the grip of a progressive illness and has a desire to get well. However, it will never work for the person who will not face squarely the facts about this illness.

hey dude how about you STFU and stop trolling??
 
2008-07-25 06:45:07 PM  
Valdes, I think you need to relax, and since you're so afraid of pot, why don't you head on down to the prison for a happy ending massage, eh?
 
2008-07-25 06:45:47 PM

The Illinois Institute for Addiction Recovery considers slot machines and video poker to be the "crack cocaine" of gambling. much like "crack cocaine" is considered the "crack cocaine" of the hard drug world of pimps, hoes, and Coolio. The Institute claims that it is their immediate gratification that makes video poker and slot machines so very addictive, much like she-male/donkey pornography. Also, the Institute has found that gamblers progress much more quickly to the dangerous phases of gambling addiction when playing these electronic machines, much like the Q-Bert addicts of yesteryear. Such dangerous phases include betting your children at the blackjack table, or selling your second (not as attractive as the first) wife for another stack of chips.

Valdes: Young people who do not do it end up with a better quality of life and higher levels of educational achievement than their peers who do it. Those who become addicts early in life have lower incomes and greater health problems later in life, according to a study...

Time for anecdotal evidence:

I'm in a US med school, and am on the dean's list.

And I smoke pot.

It's the person, not the drug.
 
2008-07-25 06:47:58 PM  
How can they charge him with 'intent to distribute' when he's betting pot. I'm pretty sure his intent is to win the farking hand and keep his pot.
 
2008-07-25 06:50:17 PM  
I havent seen fishies bite on bait like that in years. Bravo Valdes.
Pays the troll a dollar to cross his bridge.
Giggle!
 
2008-07-25 06:50:50 PM  
Hey easy on the correlation != causation thing.

Correlation does imply causation when the right hand side variables are orthogonal to the error term. Put another way, when the right hand side variables are exogenous, correlation does indeed imply causation.

DUH.

That's actually just horrible reporting on the newscaster's part. Intent to Distribute (at least federally) is based primarily on the amount of narcotics possessed by the person. Below a certain amount = personal use; above that amount = intent to distribute.
 
2008-07-25 06:53:03 PM  
Can we make pot legal for everyone but this guy?
 
2008-07-25 06:53:42 PM  
Ok so trolls aside, we've established the guy may have a gambling problem.

Gambling problem + drug abuse =addictive personality.
Addictive personality = generally will do ANYTHING to excess.

Can't really lump those folks in with the guy that smokes a bowl after a long day, much like you can't lump them in with the guy that drinks a cold one after a long day.

//moderation. It's that often-ignored middle ground.

Counselling is usually delivered by professional counsellors who are often either qualified psychologists or social workers. In many jurisdictions services are free or subsidised by government agencies. Telephone counselling services are also available in many countries.

I agree. Everyone I knew from my high school daze who was high and stoned and drunk is now (20+ years later) either dead or a loser (read: either dead, or living with their parents, or dealing with emotional trauma and on the streets, that is, homeless.)

Yeah, Pot's Great.

I'm all for legalizing pot along the lines of booze. But that's not going to make your pothead life any better.

You'll just be a boozer, smoking weed.

Fracking Idiots.

"much like she-male/donkey pornography"

or

"Such dangerous phases include betting your children at the blackjack table, or selling your second (not as attractive as the first) wife for another stack of chips."

Now that's some funny shiat, Valdes.
 
2008-07-25 06:57:49 PM  
What's the big deal? He was just trying to win the pot...

Nope. It's against the law. Check the laws on sodomy. It's a hell of a lot deeper than most people think.

Oh hell. Just saw your other posts. I bit a troll's hand. Damnit it tastes like pennies in my mouth.

So very retarded. What did he think, that the dealer was going to weigh it out and measure its potency for everyone at the table? How are you supposed to match a bet like that, even if it's not contraband?

You can convince yourself of a lot of stupid stupid crap when high, but this guy must have been completely goofballed and dropped as a baby to think that this would work. And with a bag like that, Jesus, mister -- quit when you're ahead!
 
2008-07-25 07:15:34 PM  
Valdes: words

9/10

Way to shiat all over what should be an epic fail thread. You sir are a tremendous douche.

The real question though is how much money was his bet actually worth?

You forget the part where he tried to tell the cops it was ok since he was a card-carrying member of the Cannabis Club.

Speaking of Valdes, it's too bad the White House Drug Czar uses our tax dollars to tamper with research and to pay propagandists to disseminate false statistics about drug policy.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan, the country we supposedly liberated, is producing more heroin than the world can consume. Prices are falling to the point where drug users have switched from meth, cocaine, Oxycontin, and Ecstasy to be heroin addicts. Thanks, US Drug Policy!
 
2008-07-25 07:21:41 PM  
Valdes: "Educational achievment" != education level.

And it seems to me that if one likes smoking marijuana, one's quality of life would be better for smoking it, yes?
 
2008-07-25 07:22:46 PM  
On the flip side, I think that pot should be 100% legal. I realize that gambling is an addictive activity, but I don't think marijuana is. Now if you excuse me, I'm going to go watch Harold and Jumar II. I can't wait to see what schenanigans those crazy non-cacausian potheads get into next!!
