Disappearing Hitchhiker: TV's Vinnie: By now, the only ones who want to keep pot illegal are DEA Agents (reduced funding if pot becomes legal), televangelists (because they hate everything fun), and pot cartels (the obvious).

Don't forget big alcohol...

If I were the CEO of nabisco I'd be lobbying the hell for pot legalization

fusillade762: "If marijuana is fully legalized and at some point folks say, Well, we can come up with a negotiated dose of cocaine that we can show is not any more harmful than vodka, are we open to that?" Obama wondered. "If somebody says, We've got a finely calibrated dose of meth, it isn't going to kill you or rot your teeth, are we O.K. with that?"

Wow. Thoughtfulness and nuance from a politician.

Legalizing even the smallest amounts of cocaine or meth would be completely irresponsible.... since neither of those is still under patent protection.

I would love to smoke a fattie with the president. The snacks in the White House kitchen are likely awesome.

Seriously, I'm 52yo and I never thought I would see this in my lifetime.  Now perhaps I know how my LGBT friends are feeling right now.  Good for the POTUS.  I'm one fat, old white guy who is proud to have voted for him twice!!

/I hope it makes up for voting Reagen twice

This is very irresponsible of Obama. My friend's cousin smoked some "grass" once and tried to microwave his own head. He would have done it too if he could've got the door closed.

m00: Noam Chimpsky: Marijuana is worse for your brain than crack and heroin.


Crack literally causes areas of brain death by destroying the blood vessels of the brain -- it's like giving yourself a bunch of mini strokes.
Heroin destroys your brain's dopmaine balance, probably permanently -- but it doesn't make you dumb... it just makes you chemically imbalanced. Marijuana causes some subtle effects in memory formation.

So it's not worse. Alcohol is worse for your brain long-term than marijuana.

Don't even try that bullshiat. Every great author, composer, inventor, painter, philosopher and anyone else worth a damn liked to drink some adult beverages..Those who had some accomplishments and smoked pot lost the ability to create anything worthwhile after 10 years or so of smoking it, or their brains went cancerous like Bob Marley.

Noam Chimpsky: Marijuana is worse for your brain than crack and heroin. It turns you into an imbecile. You can prove this by striking up a conversation with any pot head.

so by that logic, since you are an imbecile, you are most likely a pot head.

I read that quickly, and thought you said "dog-assisted rapes".

phillydrifter: (He dodges the question by jumping from "if we legalize weed, will coke, meth be next?") Well lets see, alcohol is legal and kills thousands annually. Tobacco is legal and kills thousands annually.

/weed for president
//you know why -- a la Cruz "pot still schedule 1, Obama says "don't worry about it" -- Biden is going to run down every one of those legal pot shops come Jan 21 2017

Are you having a stroke?  There was nothing remotely coherent about that post.

Yeah, good plan, lets use booze and cigarettes as the gold standard.
If it's no worse than them, go for it!

Since this is the Moonie Times, I"m sure they're horrified by that statement.

And their readers are so mortified they'll need to go have one of the "nerve pills" they begged their doctor to give them.
