Are you apologizing for the fact that our laws are so stupid that these guys were arrested in the first place? If so, I agree with you, both FL and NS have backwards attitudes on social issues.


Although I am a non-smoker, and pro-decriminalization, these guys were obviously idiots. Why not put the weed in the trunk and the passenger in the back seat? Or just leave their headlights on on the 103?

WHY would they be acting so surrepticiously? Prohibition? Threat of criminal charges?

Acting like a normal person would be a good start. Likely wouldn't have been pulled over if they had their lights on.

/pro-legalization
//decrim is a stopgap and, while better than we currently have, still largely hypocritical


Alcohol is decriminalized as well, not legalized. Go manufacture mass quantities and try to sell it like any other product. Not hypocritical so much as practical.

///if you've never toked, you have no frame of reference to understand that toking is far less "intense" / "harmful" / "addictive" / "intoxicating" than drinking is, and that it is literally not a big deal at all, and actually very positive (moreso than alcohol, caffeine, etc) on day to day life for many folks, medical or no.

Who said anything about "never toked?" I have, and did on a regular basis back in university.

What I was trying to say is yes, the enforcement is ridiculous, but at the same time expecting weed to be treated like sugar is unrealistic.

That argument is criminally stupid. I've never done all sorts of things, but that doesn't mean I cannot comment intelligently on them or that I have no right to an opinion.

I have never smoked pot. If completely legalized, I still never would smoke pot. I think the act of smoking pot is foolish. I lump it in with drinking; if you want to, go nuts. I've never been presented with any argument against pot other than a slippery slope fallacy (if you toke you'll move on to harder drugs). Legalize it, regulate it, tax it.

Actually, you have no idea what you're talking about. You still have the right to an (uninformed) opinion, but, having never had the experience personally, you lack the requisite personal experience to offer an opinion as valid as a participant.

For example, a non-drinker's opinion on the effects of alcohol on the human body may be scientifically accurate (pulled from Wikipedia, or from a book), but their opinion QUALITATIVELY (that is, concerning the quality of their knowledge) is substantially limited by the fact that all they understand of the reality is THEORY.

Those who understand both theory and practice (aka. those familiar with praxis) are in a much better position to speak on something than those that only understand theory (the worst of the lot), and those that understand practice only (shadetree mechanics still know how to get a car working, even if they can't explain the physics).

If you've never done it, I value your theoretical aide to our cause, but it's like being a wrestling FAN rather than being a wrestler.


Actually, you are less qualified to speak on the effect than a person who's never used it, but who has done extensive research (including not just "therory" but also interviewing users and other subjective measurements). Reason why: you, having used the drug, experienced a certain effect. Other people may or may not experience it the same way. You are only "personally" qualified to speak of its effects on you, and are no more qualified to speak of its effects on other people than anyone else. Yet, because you've used, you are irreversably biased and cannot form a completely objective opinion as can someone who's never used. That person, the unbiased person who's done good research, is the only person who "knows what they're talking about" when they make generalized (as opposed to personal) statements about marijuana.

Duh. People who smoke pot will never get to decide or influence the future of pot legalization - no one takes them seriously. It's the paid lobbyists, the suit-and-tie research crowd that will influence and finally bring about legalization.

The fact you believe in objectivity as it pertains to a psychoactive substance and the experience thereof is frankly illuminating enough to disregard this as pseudo-scientific pablum.

Further, personal use generally means a cohort of other experienced AND inexperienced users, offering greater insight as to both the cultural as well as the "medical" effects of the community AND the individual user.

You are literally arguing that a pure theoretician is more reliable in terms of comprehensive and holistic understanding of (in this case, even better, a "drug" or prohibited culture -- thereby reducing access to "reliable" theory and data to an even greater degree) than a theoretician-practitioner. Which is hilarious.

/please consult Latour's Laboratory Life, and come back and talk to me about "objectivity" via inscription.


1. I explicitly claimed it that objective expert I spoke of was not just theory, but included subjective research like interviews and stuff. Talking and observing users is NOT theory, it is EMPIRICAL evidence, and is essential for someone to know what they're talking about. This was explicitly stated, and you conveniently ignored it, which I think makes you the one who doesn't need to be taken seriously, as your me. 2. You "cohort" is not a scientificly rigorous sample--in fact it's almost certain that those people were self-selected because they had a similar reaction to the drug as you. Your cohort is, in fact, reinforcing your biases.

If you, as a user, were to do a rigorous scientific study, I would at least admit you are qualified to speak about its effects in general, though you will never be as objective about it as a non-user. Have you done rigorous research? Ok then, you're not qualified to talk about this except as it pertains to you personally.

That was the last one I got pulled over for, too. But, in their defense, that one wasn't profiling.
