Marijuana users are  generally well-versed in their recreational drug of choice. And the fact it's relatively harmless outside of the normal risks of smoking, and outside of the schizophrenic/MAOI population.

The fact that Tobacco is legal, but Marijuana is not is appalling, and falls back on the hypocritical and racist reasons for the delegalization of marijuana in the first place.

So most potheads know more about pot than nonsmokers. No shiat. Did they hire Ric Romero to head this study?

Pot smoking hardwood floor guys are better than sober hardwood floor guys. Why? Because the job sucks so bad you gotta be high to want to take the time to do a nice job

Kept me from doing things I should not for years.

Now if the pants-wetters would get overthemselves - they lost the election in Colorado and WA, but oh, the fight they are putting up - Like a 30 pound Northern they are fighting.

And like the northern, we will land them, then club 'em over the heads.

They also seem to have inferiority complexes.

We all know Marijuana prohibition pure political theatre to line the pockets of Lawyers, Prison Execs, and LEO.

What I can't figure out, is why so called "conservatives" and other the other obviously crabby-old people on Fark support painfully expensive, intrusive policies like this.

Could it be that they like intrusive government so long as they're holding the butt of the gun?

Same can be said of building an in ground pool, or pretty much any repetitive uncomplicated labor. It genuinely does help you focus an be "into" the task and do a better job than if you're biatching to yourself about how much the work sucks.

If you use a vaporizer, you probably have better lung capacity than a non-smoker.  It's like constantly doing breathing exercises.

Yes, because there are so many health problems related to marijuana. Hungry, happy, and sleepy are pretty huge health risks, right?

Because they went out of their way to make Newports illegal right?

It was about money and big industries being hurt by hemp, not arresting the "negros." That part was just a convenient bonus.

Uh, racism was a huge part of the criminalization of drugs. The first drug law in this country was banning opium in California because of racism against Asians.

There was a show on the Discovery channel called Curiosity, and an episode highlighted people who used drugs (both sober and while "high"), one of the tasks was to assemble Ikea furniture....worth the watch.

Bingo. Industrialized hemp may have been a factor in criminalizing cannabis, but the heavy penalties for possessions of small amounts were not a threat to the textile industry.  They were put in place as a method of harassing and imprisoning Hispanics.  The "negro" issue is more in line with the laws that were passed in the 80s in which possession of crack (primarily used in the inner city / minority areas) vs less strict laws on powder cocaine which was used common in the middle and upper class.

Another reason for making weed and coke unlawful was that middle class married white women started using and going to see jazz bands and enjoying life and their husbands got their congressMEN to make it against the law so the wives would stay home and drink, and make supper.

Don't think so, `Nancy'.

Today, for your enlightenment we have Irvin Rosenfeld, a stockbroker, from Florida, testifying in Michigan re: Medical MJ.
Rosenfeld has been receiving 9oz. (360 joints) of Marijuana, every month (from the Federal Pot Farm at the University of Mississippi) since 1982.  His condition?  Multiple Congenital Cartilaginous Exotoses.  The hearing was in `06.  He is currently still employed and still getting his tins of Uncle Sam's boo.  Can only wish all citizens were as Farked up...
