Was this professor in a bathtub smoking a joint with Karen Allen?

Well, after half a fifth a few hits puts me right to sleep, so he might be on to something.

Marijuana is bad because Jesus and stinking clothes.

The strong majority of everyone I know who makes less than 50ishK a year smokes doobies.

The strong majority of everyone I know who has a real job with a real income doesn't.

Just think...if all of those poor people would have easier access to weed, they could alleviate all of their pain and other legit medical and pyschological issues. They would instantly get better jobs and become more productive members of society.

Thanks republicans!

Funny most everyone that I know that tokes earns over $100k/year, I was quite shocked to find out about some of them.

There needs to be a secret handshakes or high sign...

When used to indulge, I generally drank less.... At my advanced age, I think a few puffs would get me to bed much sooner than a 6 pack.

Notice that on the video the experts for the anti-marijuana side were not independent observers but holders of vested interests (a Police Officer and a professor with the National Cannabis Prevention Centre.)  Where as the writer of the study seemed to just be following the scientific method to his conclusions.

I used to binge drink. I'd would have a whiskey drink, then a vodka drink, then a lager drink, and a cider drink.

Makes three of us who know these types of people.  Heck, some of us here are, too.  We just don't go around bragging about it.  We know to keep our mouths shut because, quite frankly, we have way more important things to focus on than to giggle about smoking pot.

Wonder when the USG will start mailing an ounce a week to any adult in the country who wants it, plus $500/mo cash in your back account, plus the same to the state you reside in. Permanent unemployment, free cable tv and interweb, stay stoned all the time...just don't cause trouble. Mosler's future.

real drug education needs to become a reality.  Stop trying to scare kids and have a serious and realistic conversation with them...

like how the habits you develop now will sneak up on you and become fairly hard to break in the future.

/smoking in high school
//binge drinking in university

The meaning of the word Duh, is so allusive to some folks.  Those pesky prohabition scare tactics were so completely full of shiat, yet they are still believed to this day even by smart people who claim to research things on their Google machines. The reason marijuana got kiboshed was because it was disruptive to the paper and texttile industries, not because it was ever "dangerous", to a single soul.

Never.  It's more profitable to allow falling wages and rising food / gas / rent / healthcare costs to drive them to crime, then jail them and use them as slave labor in for-profit prisons.  As long as it's gradual enough not to trigger widespread rioting, and as long as you can spin it as promoting Self-Sufficiency and being Tough On Crime, you'll be a hero of the people too!  Well, the ones that can still vote.

(You know that scene in A Knight's Tale where Wash from Firefly gets so mad making a threat he can't use words?  That's how I feel about this THIS.)

I'm now picturing a drunken rhino wearing a top hat, drinking a martini, and singing chumbawumba at a Karaoke bar, and my day just got quite a bit better because of it. Thank you sir.

Budweiser, pharma: "Hell no, definitely not, no way, don't even try or else all hell will break loose and people will overdose and go insane and stuff."

/yes, it will, and will start to repair the damage a diet of caffeine/speed & liquor over decades has been doing to your country's population.

Cool story: a friend of mine used to be the designated weed carrier for Bon Scott of ACDC.  If Scott got high, he wouldn't keep chugging bottles of booze.  My friend couldn't go with the band on the tour when Bon Scott drank himself to death.

Plus those teens keep running away.  The professor might catch a couple if they're self-medicated.  Simple "follow the money" logic, right? Who benefits the most from stoned teens everywhere? Paedoeoeueuphiles, that's who.

It'd probably work.  Chav's tend to either want to get high or drunk.  When they get drunk they generally become quite violent... it is probably better they get high instead as it tends to have the reverse effect.

You can either have em violent and drunk or high and desperate for pickled onion monster munch.
