    And that's where it stops. None of that other stuff would exist if that first terrible choice wasn't made. Stop focusing on the symptoms, and fight the disease.

    Hahaha. Treason.... Constitution... The founders are rolling in their graves. This is not what was intended. I still can't believe people can't see what has happened and who is behind it.

    BS. Both Washington and Jefferson grew hemp for rope production, and no doubt understood it's mind altering properties. Yes, they are rolling in their graves thinking that an American citizen can be sentenced to life in prison for doing exactly what they did.

    Ok...

    You say "No doubt understood" so...

    Provide a source where Washington or Jefferson said they used marijuana for mind altering purposes. You can't. You can go back to class now. Say hello to Trotsky for me.

    There are more crooks on the Philly police force than there are regular crooks in Philly.

    LOL Your bigoted list spans decades and you can't even muster 20 bad cops in all those years.

    By your math all blacks in Phili should be considered a gang of crooks for the black criminals convicted of murder rape theft and assault using that kind of over simplistic bigoted logic since those numbers dwarf the ones you posted.

    Sidebar: There is a WILD case about duty of care and how you don't owe it to some random hoe you're smashing while your wife is out of town. They consume more hooch and morphine pills than either of them should've survived in the first place, then send like an 8 year old neighborhood runner boy to the corner store for more.
    He tells her the weekend was fun but his wife is coming back and she needs to **** here. She drinks more booze and eats like a whole box of morphine tabs. Goes into a coma. Dude has the boy drag her down stairs to sleep it off. She dies.
    No duty of care because she was just a hoe, not his wife.

    If someone wants to sit home and drink, smoke crack, sniff glue, etc, no government involvement is needed. Lets not pretend that they have improved the situation!!!!

    It's not specious when it's one simple example in a a field full of not knowing what the **** they're talking about.

    The gamut runs pistol grips, bayonet lugs, "firing 1200 rounds per minute", "cop killer" bullets, on and on and on.

    They have zero clue what they are talking about, and using the word "clip" is just one example of that.

    I would generally agree that those shouting the loudest are typically the most ignorant.

    However, the post I was referring to didn't mention "firing 1200 rounds per minute", or "pistol grips", or even "that shoulder thing that goes up". And using "clip" instead of your beloved "magazine" didn't detract from what was being said, instead it was used as an excuse to dismiss the entire argument. That is the very definition of specious.

    And as I pointed out, it is but the most minor example from the ocean of ignorance that is leftists discussing gun control.

    Meanwhile, in PA, we have people protesting FOR the shooter.

    Hemp typically doesn't have much THC, which probably explains why they were making rope with it instead of smoking it.

    Leftists are not responsible for the move towards gun control.

    Democrats are, and there is a distinct difference in philosophies between the two.

    Yeah there's lots of leftists in the Republican party.

    What are you talking about?

    If anything, it's the other way around.

    And yes, the vast majority responsible for the move towards gun control are the majority of leftists AND the majority of Democrats.

    Name a Democrat in office that isn't for gun control.

    Name a Democrat presidential candidate that isn't for gun control.

    Jefferson brought back superior strain cannabis seeds from China that he picked up in France. The Chinese had been smoking it for centuries. There is no way he didn't know that.

    In his diaries about farming he had this to say:

    "hemp. plough the ground for it early in the fall & very deep, if possible
    plough it again in Feb. before you sow it, which should be in March.
    a hand can tend 3. acres of hemp a year.
    tolerable ground yields 500. lb to the acre. you may generally count on
    100 lb for every foot the hemp is over 4. f. high.
    a hand will break 60. or 70. lb a day, and even to 150. lb.
    if it is divided with an overseer, divide it as it is prepared.
    seed. to make hemp seed, make hills of the form & size of cucumber hills, from 4. to
    6. f. apart, in proportion to the strength of the ground. prick about a dozen
    seeds into each hill, in different parts of it. when they come up thin them
    to two. as soon as the male plants have shed their farina, cut them up that
    the whole nourishment may go to the female plants. every plant thus
    ended will yield a quart of seed. a bushel of good brown seed is enough for an acre."

    The only reason to separate males from females is to cultivate it for consumption, as females are much more potent. That he understood this tells us that it's a given that even if he wasn't smoking it, he was cultivating it for someone who was.

    Cannabis is the genus. This includes 0.3% THC cannabis and 30% THC cannabis.

    That does not mean Jefferson and Washington were blasting fiddle music and sipping gin and juice, while laid back with their mind on their money and their money on their mind.

    Even Politifact shoots it down:

    Been to Colorado recently? Go to, say, Durango where our family used to vacation frequently. Clean, neat, historical little city....then. Now that weed is legal in Colorado and the druggies have moved in go visit Durango. See those big ceramic pots in front of stores? They are there to keep the potheads from pissing, and sleeping in doorways and cadging money from paying customers and otherwise making life for normal people unpleasant. The problem is MUUUCCH bigger since legal weed was passed by the enlightened legislature as the drug dummies have moved to Colo. to infest the formerly beautiful state. Oh, and that homeless problem in Portland, Seattle, San Fran, and LA? Reporting (see the YouTube video "Seattle is Dying") shows its mostly from the wigged out hopheads who have gravitated to...uh...liberal enclaves that have cosmopolitan attitudes toward drug use.

    So, yeah. Lets encourage even more of that in places where it isn't as much of a problem. I don't care if the weak simpletons who just have to use mind altering substances to get by fry their brains. I just don't want to have me or my community afflicted by the human detritus that results from all the brain frying they willingly engage in. Find a way to keep the weak minded druggies from harming me or requiring my tax money to treat them or support them when they have problems and they can buzz their little brains to the early graves they seem to desire.
