You asked me if I wanted to debate it with you.

My answer is no.

Tears for your forum rights should be directed elsewhere.

Bro, marijuana affects you physiologically. It affects your depth perception.

Two things alcohol doesn't do.





Oh, wait... alcohol does exactly that?


Damn.

If only. Can we also add legally shoot the speakers of the cars with the sound so far up it rattles your filling and makes your ears bleed. Also, shoot the tires of idiots that text and drive, hold the phone up to their ear and drive, and worst of all, fecking reading while they drive. I guy I went through rookie school in Wilmington with, did this. I offered to drive for him. I only drove with him once.

That's all I want.

I also hate olives, so I agree that they should be illegal.

So that makes it 2 against 1, so Rabbi is clearly wrong hear. The math doesn't lie...2 >1

Why can't they get jobs? Because its illegal. More states change the laws, the more the fed has to deal with it and it'll quickly become a SCOTUS issue. Ending MJ prohibition will allow it to be properly tested in labs and more proof its lack of long term effects and companies will stop testing for MJ usage in the same manner. Companies will begin to blood test and look for high levels that indicate very recent usage, just like the legal system will use to prove impairment.

It'll be fully legalized and treated like alcohol: don't smoke at work or lose your job.

It'll just take time.

1) it should be a state not federal issue
2) MJ inhibits the user for 72 hours after use, alcohol does not.

Would it be fair to say that in your estimation, marijuana is a greater threat to public health than alcohol?

Well guess what, people DID vote and change the law.

Enforcement of simple possession and use of Marijuana has been REMOVED from local LEO authority.

Hypocrites.

One example 72 hour after smoking a joint drivers are FAR more likely to rear end another vehicle.

This is not the case for alcohol.

Are you seriosuly about to suggest that MJ causes more driving fatalities than alcohol? Are you seriously that ignorant?

Huh?

Think about what you wrote. How is anyone a hypocrite? The state law was changed. This is America, people (including Gov employees) are still entitled to their opinions.

Just because Obama was elected does not mean I have to 100% agree with everything he does.

No it is not be a fair representation of my estimation.

Marijuana has its own set of problems; marijuana and alcohol share some of the same problems, but each has their own separate problems. To claim that marijuana allegedly poses fewer problems than alcohol, therefore we should treat marijuana the same as alcohol is an unsupportable argument.

I argue that legalizing and mainstreaming another drug is not a positive, or healthy direction to any society to undertake.

Secondly I argue that should we choose to legalize and mainstream another drug, we need to do so in light of the unique properties of the new drug instead of trying to treat it the same as a completely different drug.

One example being that unlike alcohol marijuana leaves the user with after effects (depth perception) for approximately 72 hours after use.

Marijuana was legal from 1776 until more or less the 1930s.

The main reason it was made illegal were based on racial reasons.

Laugh but it true, Harrison narcotic act aimed mostly at the black population. Just as concealed weapons laws were directed towards the black people.

Please prove me wrong and correct my ignorance, if you can. If I'm wrong it is from faulty input years ago.

You're correct. The black man was the boogyman used to garner support but the motivation was more power for the DEA and financial interests of a newspaper magnate that worried about losing money from the lumber he was invested in to hemp paper.

Just like today, if you want to get something done then find a way for it to save rich people money.
