    If someone isn't informed about the risks of drug use then they must be blind, deaf, and unable to read braile. You'd literally have to be Helen Keller. Oh wait, she invented braile didn't she?

    If you're going to use them you gotta play by the rules of the drug and know what you're doing. You need to know what you can mix with what and how much you can have. You need to know your own medical history aswell. If it's your first time, start out low. You need to know how the drug works and what it does.

    Look at Britney Spears. She recently OD'd on MDMA, cocaine and Vicodin. Just like in the kitchen, you can't mix ingredients and not know what you're doing and expect a cake. With drugs, you can't mix chemicals and not know what you're doing and expect good results.


    Not that i'm advocating drug use because i'm not. IF you choose to use, know the rules or your gonna lose.

    I just made that up

    I JUST saw the tail end of a news segment on channel 2.

    There was a "water drinking" contest hosted by a local ATL DJ/ radio station and a girl died from a water overdose.

    Well... I'm sure those of inclined to break the law will not listen to the "man" but the problem at hand is "the man" has no right to tell us what we can and can not snort or smoke or inject. What we do in our own homes is our own business. If I want to wake up in a pool of what I HOPE is my own filth, that's my problem, not my next door neighbors. Lol, auctually my next door neighbor is a preacher who used to be a heroin dealer.

    The word was
    first coined in the 1890s, but was adopted by the Bureau of Narcotics in the 1930s to
    describe all forms of Cannabis and to this day U.S. drug enforcement agencies
    continue to call the plant marijuana without regard to botanical distinctions.
    So that means if you had a variety of Cannabis that wasn't the "drug" then you could fight and win a case against the US because you weren't growing pot?

    The only real problem with legalizing Cannabis is the fact that people are afraid. I personally don't like the idea of people driving around high or drunk....but when you legalize a motor functions and judgment inhibitor, those are the risks. Another reasons is because Cannabis has been given such a bad name in the past due to false accusations against it, people are afriad of loosing braincells/etc. Take a wiff of city air, betch you'll lose 10x's the amt. of braincells in 1 wiff of city smog then u would smokin a joint/bowl.

    The only real reason Im kind of a fence sitter is how many irresponsible pot smokers I've met in my life. I only know about 2 that I feel comfortable around when they are smoking it. The others wierd me out, esp with bowls...thats just wierd....

    My .02 cents.

    Lol, they aren't going to bite you Dustin

    Unless you're hogging the Doritos that is lol

    I agree that driving drunk or high is bad. A reasonable person wouldn't do that. If they do that then they deserve to be punished.

    BTW, what's weird about bowls?

    You guys keep talking like the user of a drug is the only person who gets hurt. Maybe it's not primarily the user that the laws are protecting? No one lives in a bubble... our actions ripple out across the planet like the wingbeats of the famous butterfly in China.

    Betting that people under the influence will be self-policing is usually a losing bet. That much should certainly be obvious with any judgement-impairing drug. Their intentions may be noble before the drug usage. During, however, they may be unable to keep their promises.

    And when it comes to addictive drugs, the path from use to abuse is the path of least resistance. Of course that's where most people are going to drift... momentum in the direction of abuse is chemically built into the drug. The term "addictive" means "you are more likely to get addicted than not".

    Maybe you guys are responsible about it. Maybe there's no one in your immediate vicinity that gets hurt (though with some drugs, there may very well be a hidden trail of blood from its origin to your doorstep). It's easy to assume that one's own experience is the experience of the majority. In this case I don't think that's true. For every one of you, I'd bet there are at least 20 people out there who'd be better off without access to drugs.

    So maybe you guys should try looking at it from another angle to see how it sits with you. Instead of all the "me, me, me" ("*I* want drugs so I should be allowed to have them, and the consequences to society are someone else's problem")... try thinking of the loss of access to drugs as a fair sacrifice. Think of it as taking one for the team. I don't really care much about legality. To me that isn't the issue. "Should we" do drugs seems a lot more relevant to me than "can we" do drugs. Try to look at the world as a whole, and ask yourself, knowing how most humans work, whether a world that supports drugs is a better place to live in than a world that attempts to eliminate them (as futile as that may be). You may find that even though you like drugs and can handle drugs, a sense of concern for humanity's future dictates that it's wiser to give them up for the greater good. Drugs don't interest me at all, but if they did I still wouldn't touch them for that reason. I couldn't sleep at night knowing I was helping to create a darker future for society, even if my own life was going just fine. I'd be disturbed knowing where my money was going, and who I'd be giving more power to.

    We can't complain about the world being a dungheap and contribute to the dungheap at the same time. If our actions support decay, then we support decay, no matter what we think we support.

    In short... get out of your bubbles. They don't exist. You affect the world, whether you like it or not. You can do harm whether you think you are or not. That's a burden we all have to live with.

    And after high school they burst pretty violently of their own accord, so you might as well get it over with early.

    The anti-libertarian in me wonders whether the marijuana or the laws against it causes more trouble. I certainly favor abandoning the war on drugs because it's been a disaster. But complete legalization would be a disaster too. Somewhere there's a line in between "The War On" and legalization that would minimize the harm to society. But, given what we see with alcohol, society is willing to accept quite a carnage in exchange for easy access to an intoxicant.
