People should just mind their own farking business. Don't like weed? Don't smoke it. Simple.

Well, it's clearly ridiculous to deny pot for prescribed medical purposes on the basis of some sort of ideological zealotry.

But something far more heinous and disgraceful is the prohibition in many nations that denies the blessed relief offered by medically administered Diamorphine (Heroin) as an analgesic of last resort to millions of suffering souls every single day (who might be you, me or them one day) these are quite possibly the most disgraceful examples of pompous, self righteous, callous ideological zealots and/or fools ever to claim moral authority over the rest of us.

You can bet many of the opponents of such things will be immediately off to a clinic in the UK or some other enlightened country if they are ever victims of end stage horribly painful disease.

Take note politicians and their toadies, this may be you some day!

My refusal to fully back it is because I view the majority of supporters are nothing more than stoners looking to circumvent the laws. They care nothing of medical ethics, they just want to snicker and pretend they are sick and ask for weed. Look at how many dispensaries have nothing to do with medicine. I refuse to support such activity.


I shouldn't have to, and don't, ask idiots like you for shiat. For one, I'm willing to break the law when it is operating outside of its boundaries. For two, you are a worthless pissant with no authority to make that decision. Your logic is the most retarded, juvenile reasoning behind being against something I've ever heard of.

I'm a firm believer that the US would be a better place if pot were legal: less crime, more revenue/business, less cost to services, etc. I doubt anyone could change my mind.

I'm also slightly less positive about decriminalizing all drugs, as I think we go about it the wrong way. But that's far more complicated than the marijuana stance.

It is a very simple issue, actually. How many people do you know that want a more harmful/dangerous drug than marijuana who cannot find it? The war on drugs prevents nobody from doing any drug, it only serves to drive up the costs of those drugs, and to fuel the prison system. There is a reason we hold such a disproportionately high percentage of our population in prison for victimless crimes - its a great way to justify an ever bigger black hole for tax dollars to be funneled into police and prison unions pockets. Those same unions turn around and lobby politicians with the public money they siphoned.

And what the hell is stoner culture besides Taco Bell and Half-Baked?


Please pull your head out of your farking ignorant ass, GAT.


That is the stupidest god damn thing I have ever seen you type.

People abuse alcohol and look at the chaos it brings.

People abuse Cocaine (a schedule II drug, so its classified as having a medical use vs. hemp being schedule I, which is classified as having no use). Coke can give folks aneurysms and make them keel over dead quite easily. That happened to a nice lady I knew, she left a newborn baby and a husband. Coke is some nasty shiat that has (imo) zero medical use.

Hemp, no matter what you think about it, should be legal for adults to use - either recreationally or medicinally.

Stop throwing stoners in jail and maybe the corrupt businessmen and politicians and murderers can be the ones locked up.

Wake the flying fark up please. Pot is not bad - folks understanding about it is very flawed.

So your solution is to continue the cause of these problems? Simply because you don't want stoners to "get away with it?" I think the families of the people dying in northern Mexico could really care less if these chuckleheads "pull one over on us." We should use public policy to encourage positive behaviors, not as a stick to punish people like errant children simply because our own personal flavor of ethics disapproves.

Legalize it already.

There's another gateway for hard drugs other than marijuana. It's called pain.

There are people who live in incredible pain who are unable to obtain health care and try to manage their pain as best as they can. And the truth is that illegal drugs are cheaper than a visit to the emergency room or doctor's office these days.

for pot its currently "anything" = DUI and on the spot tests don;t exist yet.

so i guess the only way is to arrest under suspicion of DUI and then test?

sounds like a great "non-issue" to me!

dumbobruni: many were against the approval of oxycodone due to the potential for abuse.


Anything that is physically addictive has that potential. The proper way to deal with it is not to flip out and start tossing people in jail. Nor is to treat people who have prescriptions for things like oxycodone as automatically suspect. The way certain people who need pain medication are treated, whether it's the limits on how many pills they can get, without regards to whether it's actually sufficient, to how they're sometimes regarded, is utterly barbaric. Treating those people badly on account of those who are addicted, is just indefensible.

cman: I am gonna make an assumption that I am probably the only one in this thread who thinks heroin and methamphetamine (and all drugs) should be legalized.

Please prove me wrong. I hate being *that guy* alone in a thread



Nope. Right there with you. Many of the harms caused by these drugs could be ameliorated, or removed altogether, by legalizing them.

Reduced costs in policing and incarceration
Legalization allows for regulation, which can prevent adulteration of the substances. The "pure" versions of these drugs can be far less harmfull than the "street" versions, thus less medical costs
The ability to prescribe Heroin would reduce crime inspired by the need to get money to purchase it
It would kick organised crime squarely in the nuts
The "gateway" theory goes out the window. Don't need to go to a dodgy dealer who makes more profit from a bag of stepped-on heroin than a quarter of weed, don't get offered heroin
Simply put, An it harm none, do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law

Why should it be illegal for anyone who wants to use it? I don't see it as being any worse than alcohol, if anything, it's less harmful.

Because that's not the argument. They're hijacking legitimate medicine and fark people that do that. Its bad when Jenny McCarthy does it, why is it not for these people?

Fair_Poopsmith: GAT_00: Pro-legalization protests are filled with people who show up stoned and look like the type of people who contribute nothing. If you really want legalization to get somewhere, you have to look like you're worth something. A crowd of people who don't look like stoners calling for legalization is worth far more than the usual protests.

If you want the establishment to listen, you have to play at least some of their game. If you look like you should be ignored, you'll get ignored. Its why I went to one OWS protest and left when I realized at least half of the people were currently stoned. Its so farking stupid and easy to not shoot yourself in the foot like that.

You're not wrong about any of this, but it has no bearing on your conclusion that there is value in keeping criminal penalties for an unspecified cannabis-using lifestyle.

"I'm against gay marriage, because it's illegal, and I don't like how the gays are co-opting the christian idea of 'marriage' in order to receive medical benefits. Well, yeah, I know that isn't the only reason, but MAN, there sure is a lot of that going around, and I hate people who exploit the law that way. Have you ever been to a gay pride parade? Those homo protests are filled with people who show up in leather chaps and feather boas and and look like the type of people who are constantly buttfarking. If you really want legalization to get somewhere, you have to look like you're worth something. A crowd of people who don't look like queens calling for legalization is worth far more than the usual protests.

If you want the establishment to listen, you have to play at least some of their game. If you look like you should be ignored, you'll get ignored. Its why I went to one Gay Pride Parade protest and left when I realized at least half of the people were acting promiscuous.

While I agree that seeing "medical" pot shops with shiatty pun names that cater to college kids with "back problems" is annoying as all damn hell, that's still not a good reason to keep it illegal. In fact, by legalizing pot completely, you'd get medical usage to gain back respectibility and authenticity since they can start, you know, actually providing it to medical patients.

Or just makes the rules to authorize it a lot harder to knock that shiat off. It wouldn't be hard. But the stoners who are the backers of this don't want that, so you're left with an idea with promise backed by a legion of worthless morons.

Having read most of this mess: I have yet to see, hear, read, or otherwise be presented a sound, cogent argument against decriminalization of marijuana. Thus far no good argument based either on medical, scientific, moral, or ethical grounds has been presented to me.

This seems to me to be an issue of control. There just happen to be some folks out there who want to control what other people look like, what they do, how they do whatever it is they do, and so forth. I would be willing to grant them that control if and when such people can prove beyond a reasonable doubt that they are perfect in every way.

You'd have to do a study to show marijuana impairs you before such a thing is necessary. Otherwise just slap a generic "do not operate large machinery while under the influence" warning on the packaging.

Doesn't seem to stop them from giving you a pupilary dilation test, searching your car, and then throwing you in the tank for driving while impaired.

Effects of THC on driving performance, physiological state and subjective feelings relative to alcohol.

This study shows any "impairment" causes them to drive more carefully. You'd need way more study, but it doesn't seem like it's a problem.
