    My origional argument was that Prohibition isn't like the ban of weed for two main reasons. The topic has seemed to deviated from that, though.
    Does it even matter? If weed isn't bad for you, then just legalize it and get some money for important things. If it is bad for you then just let the idiots kill themselves and take the money they've got in the meantime.

    It's a goddamn plant. There shouldn't be this much drama.

    Sorry, I'll make a more accurate comparison.



    Me owning a secret stash of plutonium would go down just fine with the government, right?
    You're still blowing it out of proportion. Cannabis is not radioactive and would not help anyone create a weapon of mass destruction.

    Hell, if anything it would probably stop weapons from being made. Who can fashion a nuke when you're baked?

    I haven't got the heart for that. =/




    HOWEVER, if you ask me, California should try to make money by raising money, not cutting workers' pays and selling more crap. We could bring in more money by selling cocaine and starting up brothels too.






    The brothels idea isn't too bad, though.

    Then toughen the fuck up, cause they'll probably just overdose on some bad Heroin or something regardless of what we do. Fuck them, dumbasses.

    What's wrong with brothels? They're already legal in some states, hasn't destroyed them.


    And selling crap is how you raise money captain genius.

    I'm probably what most people would consider a heavy smoker (despite me stopping for the next month or so) and i haven't really had any issues at all interms of physical, i've had some slight mental breakdowns(random bouts of depression for a day or two, nothing serious), but thats only from over analyzing things while stoned. (i've always been to hard on myself, it wasn't until i started that i actually lightened up, but i still have moments..)

    Let me explain in small words for you.


    People = the people who didn't buy the product.


    User = the person who bought the product.

    Understand?

    I get that all the time. I bet that's worse for me than weed is, but I'll stick with my usual sober self. It's more interesting this way.

    People will always smoke shit. The more you try to stop them the more they smoke. Just accept it and move the fuck on.

    I dont get it, is it because facepunch barely ever gets out and watches tv when it says weed is bad for you?

    Because its not unless you have it every single day of you're life. A little bit every now and again is actualy good for you, it relax's you and make you happy.

    But facepunch thinks "omg weed is bad because it is a drug that kills 2 brain cells out of a gagillion and because its used in the phrase drug that its up there with crack and cocaine."

    where have you been, almost everyone in this damned forum loves weed.

    and it is never really good for you, its like the fats and sweets on the top of the food pyramid, its an option, not a need.

    That's just me, and i also get them sober, it's just i get them more when i smoke simply because it makes me think long and hard about things. and anti-depressants hardly, weed for the most part is prescribed for anti-depression.

    I'm just one of those people where it works differently.

    Legalizing marijuana would severely hamper the drug trade and cut the profits of all those big shot drug barons down in Mexico causing so much shit and getting however many people killed and kidnapped.

    Smoking and alcohol consumption is allowed, why not allow marijuana, especially if it's not chemically addictive.

    S'all I'm saying.

    I've read that the anti-cancer properties of THC pretty much prevents you from getting lung cancer from smoking it. There are other ways to take it anyway. Vaporization or eating it only have beneficial effects.
    And before some dumbfuck says "thc is bad fur u" here's THC's effect on brain cancer cells:

    It destroys the fucked up cells while protecting normal brain cells. Pretty ridiculous that this isn't a common treatment, but pharmaceutical companies will do anything to get people to use the more expensive and damaging treatments. Humans are fucked up.

    That makes no sense. If pot was a magical panacea, then surely drug companies would have it legalized so they could sell it at far above it's normal price?

    Because hemp oil can be made by anyone. There are other cancer treatments that are withheld from the media because they would make the company's other products worthless (dichloroacetate). And there's also the stupid stigma with illegal drugs.

    Yeah, so? People are lazy fucks. They'll buy anything, regardless of the price, even if it can be made by oneself. And I doubt cancer patients would set up their own little production stalls as their hair falls out and their body fails.

    Medical Marijuana dispensaries can sell hemp oil for a fraction of the price, taking away profit from the pharmaceutical companies.
    And THC can't be patented, making it hard for companies to profit from it.

    If smokers and drinkers kept telling me I should "drink up, braaaah, it'll mellow you out, duuuude. It's like, really spiritual and stuff, cha know? And it also, like, makes you smarter, brah, because this one time, when I was like... Drunk or something, I took this test and got like a B or somethin', dude," I'd probably care about their illegalization more.



    I'd do a stoner version for tobacco, but that'd just end up being "SMOKE UP DUDE," and so on.

    Genesis 1:29
    Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.

    Genesis 1:12

    The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.
