Re: Am I the only person who's against legalizing pot?
I think they should let the pot go legalize it or just not penalize it would be better.

But when ever you get government management involved ..it may come back to bite you in the rear end.

You will get it a high costs and be regulated in ways you do not have now.

They gave us tobacco then they turn around and attack smokers...

They give you entertainment gone wild...then turn around and attack you for it.

They busted up the bootlegging and made more controlled taxed regulated drinks..

Yet this to may see its day of being attacked..it is already in other places.

No one should do drugs while driving or working their jobs or tending their kids..

It influences the brain out of its normal way it would be if not high on pot..

It can make people to laid back actually laid back to the point they are slow responding...almost lazy like want even sit up straight leaning on the walls instead of standing straight.
Giggly and goofing off attitude wanting to monkey around ....behaving sexually excited.

They should not work like that.

You don't want people drunk while driving either, but they still do it. And when they get caught, they pay the consequences, just like anyone would driving high.

(on a side note, I can find at least 3 studies that conclude that high drivers are safer than even sober drivers.)

 Quoting: Chris Hansen


if they do this, they get charged the same as anyone driving drunk. Not something you want to do a lot, very expensive at least in my state, and more than one... you're in a heap of hassle then.

I'll say this again. Everyone who supports marijuana being illegal, should also support alcohol being illegal.

What would happen if society would not have it's outlets to loosen up after a hard week busting one's ass at work.

Are people expected to stay stone cold sober for life because of someone else's moral values? There is no doubt some people, in fact dare I say a lot of people, drink what I would consider excessively. That's their right.

Punish them when they harm others, don't make nanny state 'preventive' laws just in case they might do something.

You shouldnt be worrying about what other people are doing. If you do not want to smoke pot then dont do it.

Well yeah. Also: if you don't want an abortion don't get one, if you don't like guns don't buy one, if you're against gay marriage don't marry a member of the same sex, etc., etc., etc.

The way I see it, people's minds now-a-days are already messed up bad enough. What will our society be like when there are no laws holding the insanity at bay.

To be fair, alot of those messed up minds have LEGAL medications to thank for that, all the anti-weed people are bitching about the wrong drug pushers.
 Quoting: The Myth


an extremely important point.
opiates meth and crack cocaine,
along with accursed fiat money.
are messing up hearts and minds.

all common prescription drugs,
opiates being the real
devil and original cause for
the idiotic "war on drugs".

well, money is the cause,
to be honest. or the lack
of money to be precise.

when you are high, you are impaired. your reaction time is way slower. now imagine 10000000x more people on the road driving while high. if its true there are more people driving high than drunk people..... it would be crazy to legalize pot. the fact there are more people high on the road when pot is ILLEGAL means there will be a lottttt more pot drivers on the road when it becomes legal.

yeah, every single one going like 40mph, cos it's safer.
blinkers at every turn, cos it's correct and not racing the
other drivers; like they would if drunk, even sober.

comparing pot to alcohol is what we have been taught to do.
without questioning words like high.
with prescription drugs it´s called dizziness or drowsiness.
intoxicated on alcohol called being drunk. but since hemp and
thc is non-toxic, you can´t become intoxicated by consuming it.

so what does being high on weed mean then? not low?
as in un-depressed? wonder where all the money is going
for marketing and campaining pharma meds...
any one else fed up?

Exactly. If anything should be banned, it should be banning stuff or telling people what to do, because we all know how that works....

On top of that, if ANYTHING would be banned. Guns, drugs, toxins, poisons, chemicals, alcohol, addicting flavorings, cancer causing substances, legal highs, etc etc.

POT.

POT!?

Which possibly cures cancer, obviously helps with almost all illness, and has zero to harmful negative effects?

Once again....anyone who wants to get high and go for a drive is ALREADY DOING IT, the weed's legal status is not going to change the number of high drivers by any great degree either way.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28118884


Colorado is a good example of what I am talking about.

Here is an interview on NPR's Fresh Air from this past week. Sorry, I am on mobile, so maybe someone more savvy than myself could translate this m. site to the www. URL for me...

[link to m.npr.org]

In CO, if you want to sell, a certain perentage must be grown by you (50%, as I recall). You must also pay for inspections as well as a sever thousand dollar license. Most small-time growers, as well as many retail stores (like mom 'n' pop, but really their adult kids, lol), cannot get all the paperwork and fees. Apparently, in some cases, a shopping cart is required. Also, no deductions may be taken on Fed taxes, aside from the costs associated with the actual fam operation. This is a big deal for a small business. God knows what Obamacare will do to it (something I ordinarily stand behind, but not the point).

The guy interviewed had some very interesting things to say about the tobacco industry. He said that big tobacco has had contingency plans for Nat'l legalization in place for at least the last twenty years. It is, in this use, anyway, a vice industry, undeniably. These industries thrive on addiction and dependence. Yes, I know pot is not addictive, but what sort of additives will we be seing (or not seeing)? Also, like an above poster stated, what will happen once Monsanto gets into the mix? It's gonna be a disaster, that's what'll happen! It will certainly not be any fun. We certainly won't be getting buds that have had Mozart played their entire lives... Once the stockholders get their way, what will their way be?

I hope I am wrong about this. I hope it stays much the same, but with less anxiety. At any rate, these things bear thinking about.

I don't think it's that simple. I don't really buy the whole "Marijuana is natural, ergo it should be legal" argument. Not saying there aren't any good arguments for legalization, but that's not one of them.

I don't think people who are not smoking pot right now are all of the sudden going to take up the habit just because it's legal. So what does it matter?
