gittlebass: How is it stupid?


Take a step back from the libertarian / freedom-loving desire for all drugs to be completely legalized, because responsible adults should be able to do as they please with their bodies.  I share that sentiment, but stop and think objectively about the concept of "medical marijuana" for a moment.

What do we get with medical marijuana, and how does it compare to every other medicine available in the United States?
- No quality control.  Any grower, any strain is OK.
- Delivery method.  Smoking is imprecise.
- Indications for use.  "Whatever the patient thinks it might be helpful for."
- Abuse potential.

Putting marijuana in the same category as any other prescription drug in the United States is just silly.  There is no other medicine that is produced, prescribed, or used in such a haphazard fashion.

Again, I absolutely favor legalization of ALL drugs for any use that any adult desires, including recreation.  I'm glad marijuana makes sick people feel better for a little while.  I suspect cocaine would make them feel better for a little while too.  That doesn't mean either are appropriate medical treatments.

Bottom line, it's stupid because "medical marijuana" is not held to the same standards as other medicines.  It is a political maneuver to get around prohibition and that's clever and great, but it's shoddy medicine.  Say what you will about the FDA, but it does a reasonably good job enforcing a minimum level of safety, efficacy, and quality control.

WeenerGord: He probably just threw a bunch of seeds out there


That reminds me of something I did my senior year of high school.  I took a large quantity of pot seeds and tossed all over the high school property.  Enough of them sprouted to be a bit of a nuisance.  Good times.

abhorrent1: a guest at his neighbor's most recent party must have notified the authorities.

Just like the asshole friends that reported the neighbors pet deer. You don't live next door. If your friend who does, doesn't care, why do you farking care?
Mind your own farking business. I know you think this makes you a hero but in reality, it makes you an asshole busy body.


It's like the kid in school who tells the substitute teacher what it was you were supposed to be doing that day.

OgreMagi: Mock26: If someone is breaking the law out in public they deserve to get caught and they deserve all the consequences that come with getting busted.

Yeah.  Fark Rosa Parks!

/That's sarcasm.  I'm pointing it out because I believe you have the intelligence of a large brick.
//In other words, you are perfect cop material.


In my gamer days I would have called him Lawful Evil.
