    A horrible drug that causes cognitive brain and lung damage .
    The disgusting state governments are tricking the masses
    This is not a safe drug
    It also makes you incompetent and stupid

    Plus I have to smell it all the time and makes me nauseous
    Anyone else agree ?

    Agree. I have seen too many people's lives ruined by marijuana. It is especially damaging to young people's brains.

    Decriminalizing marijuana would take most of the profit out of it.

    Look at the "Dutch" model for legal prostitution! & !
    Disabled Welfare folks get "Sex Aid".



    In 1970 the Amsterdam, "Red Light" district
    was a place to promenade. What a sight.
    Nothing seedy about it.
    Ladies would sit in big picture windows and when they had
    a customer, the curtains were closed.
    Nothing "gutter" about it.


    Moi :oldman:
    I only saw it, never bought.

    Imagine trying to drive a car with 2/3 of the pop whacked out
    Marijuana is drug for people who have quit life

    You think if it’s legal all of a sudden 2/3 of the population will smoke pot? Sorry, but people who don’t smoke pot don’t do so because it’s illegal. It’s because they aren’t a loser. Pot is legal in my state and I still have no desire to smoke it just because it’s legal. Recreational drugs are for losers.

    Making it legal does result in more people smoking it with bad results.

    It actually doesn’t. No such thing has happened in my state where it’s legal.

    Apparently you do not live in Colorado.
    "1. The majority of DUI drug arrests involve marijuana and 25 to 40 percent were marijuana alone.

    2. In 2012, 10.47 percent of Colorado youth ages 12 to 17 were considered current marijuana users compared to 7.55 percent nationally. Colorado ranked fourth in the nation, and was 39 percent higher than the national average.

    3. Drug-related student suspensions/expulsions increased 32 percent from school years 2008-09 through 2012-13, the vast majority were for marijuana violations.

    4. In 2012, 26.81 percent of college age students were considered current marijuana users compared to 18.89 percent nationally, which ranks Colorado third in the nation and 42 percent above the national average.

    5. In 2013, 48.4 percent of Denver adult arrestees tested positive for marijuana, which is a 16 percent increase from 2008.

    6. From 2011 through 2013 there was a 57 percent increase in marijuana-related emergency room visits.

    Lol...hey, **** happens. Cons are pushing to cancel the virus lockdown and let people kill each other until only the immune are left, so don’t rag on the potheads. We’re all on our own, don’cha know?
    Suck it up and hope that a drunk or pothead doesn’t kill you while driving. It’s the American way.

    Trump loves that guy in Philipines, that says, shoot dead any pot smoker you can find. I think Trump, who has ALL authority, could clear this up in a decree. And he wouldn't have to kill many more than the covid 19 to do it. You wanted a gov that was small enough to drown in the bathtub, but strong enough to institute death squads.

    Prohibitionists are unbelievable, we live in a free country, if you don't want to partake... don't

    Alcohol is by far a worst drug

    Except that your bad activity affects me.
    I would get rid of it also. It has almost no redeeming qualities. In order of priority, I would ban tobacco, alcohol and then pot.

    I have know many that smoked when younger, the only ones whom lives were ruined where the ones that got busted for it, the war on drugs does more harm than the drugs themselves

    remember, the abuse is there legal or not, just one makes criminals of those that did not abuse

    the war on drugs is evil, it funds gangs and terrorists

    "Drug Money Funds Terrorism And Terrorists"



    ending prohibition is the way to go...

    look at the prison stats.... look at the gangs and terrorists funded by prohibition


    i don't drink or do drugs, wish they never existed, either of them, but I do not believe prohibition is helping anything, in fact I think it does more harm then good
