I'm not going to click on another Opposing Views link.

They seem to just steal their stories from other sites and must be paying Drew a lot of money.

And besides, who the hell cares if pot is kosher?

Why would they not be 100% for the use of marijuana?  Would they not see it as a gift from their supposed god?

"Oy vay?" Accord to my Jewish friend, "Oy" and its variants are largely negative interjections. I'm not sure what would be a decent replacement, though I imagine there are some Jewish Farkers out there with their own opinion, with a characteristic willingness to share them.

I'll never understand why conservatives and right wing fundies throw a fit about marijuana usage, when 40,000 people die a year in the U.S. from alcoholic liver disease and alcoholic-induced deaths. And we rarely ever hear them speaking out against alcohol which takes so many lives.

/yet when marijuana is mentioned, it's REEFER MADNESS!!!

It's leftover bullsh*t from the late 60's when those damn hippies were dragging down 'Merica with their drugs and their opposition to freedom-fightin' in Vietnam. With marijuana now rapidly becoming legal, it's a big slap in the face to them. I'm in Colorado, and my out-of-state conservative family members are appalled at pot being legalized here.

Legal pot, black president, gay marriage, Iraq War doublethink, the list goes on for conservatives watching their fantasy world crumble around them. They're having an identity crisis.

In just one of these "Rabbi rules X is kosher" stories I would like to see the actual written rabbinical opinion rather than accepting on faith a newspaper summary. Even if it is written in Hebrew, if the ruling is important enough to affect Jewish religious law than there should be an English translation.

There is too much "because the Rabbi says so" and too little examination of how he argued and whether those arguments could also justify man on dog sex.

Aren't stress and anxiety aliments currently treated by prescription drugs? Seems that since stress is no considered to be dangerous to your health, you should be able to use marijuana to relieve it as much safer alternative to other drugs currently prescribed.


wellbutrin it's 150mg 2x a day

He's not dismissing recreational drug use out of hand as I read it.

"Taking drugs to escape this world in any excessive way is certainly forbidden," Zalmanovich said. "However, if the drug is administered to relieve pain, then the person giving it is performing a mitzvah."

If he just said "in any way" I'd be the first to agree with you but the use of the word "excessive" tells me it's not that black and white to him.

Obviously I could be wrong on that.

Wellbutrin is also a great way to commit suicide as well. By cardiac problems, they mean this:

cdn.lifeinthefastlane.com

Complete Atrio-ventricular block.

Wellbutrin is one of those "One-pill kill" drugs in kids, along the lines of norvasc and verapamil.

Symptomatic poisonings with symptoms of circulatory compromise will either get Intralipid Rescue, or they'll end up on cardiac bypass or ECMO.

Here's my problem. I live in a state where it's legal for medical use. I have severe joint pain and work full time in a job that requires motion.

I also work at a site that requires drug screening, and who will happily fire me if I tested positive for marijuana. So... I deal with and hurt like hell because it's not worth being unemployed.

War on drugs is pointless when they're busy going after cancer granny who smokes a bowl for it, when those resources and money could go towards stopping actual hard drug use.
