I am all for pot being legal, but there is literally no reason in the world to start legalizing all this other crap.
Totally agree.

Cannabis is less harmful than both alcohol and cigarettes. I couldn't say the same about any other illegal drugs.

Maybe legalizing it would be a bit off board, but decriminalizing it certainly wouldn't be a bad idea. Read some articles on Portugal.

The Marijuana thread? how the heck did I miss this?

All my friends here know where I stand. Iím a libertarian and Iím a stoner. I smoked my first joint 38 years ago and I smoked my last one.....well Iím still smoking it now.

For 30 years I smoked every day at work. When you run construction labor crews it is an absolute necessity as a motivational tool. I still managed to climb 2 company ladders and start my own.

I have no research or science to contribute just my own experiences.

When I donít smoke cigarettes I have greatly improved cardio. I donít think the MJ adversely affects that for me.

I have never seen a workplace accident caused by MJ ( although I have blamed a couple of huge f*** ups on it.)

Iíve never known anyone to rob, steal or prostitute themselves so they could buy MJ.

Iíve never known anyone to burn a couple then go home and beat the ďolí ladyĒ.

When faced with hard physical work it is a great motivator at work yet somehow has the opposite effect at home. (Iíve been employee of the month with an overgrown trashed yard at home.)

MJ can curb your ambition, but isnít ambition a sin?

To me, the bottom line is that mj is a gift.

Whether you believe in God, Ja, karma or just the randomness of the universe, itís a gift and should be enjoyed.

as for the other more harmful drugs. Again, Iím a libertarian. I say legalization would serve to thin the herd and improve the gene pool.

Kilz buddy, I've been trying to rep you for the cool new colors but I just can't seem to spread enough.

"Pharmaceuticals" are equally illegal if they aren't prescribed by a doctor or physician.

And everyone already knows alcohol is worse, that doesn't justify anything.


The problem with Marijuana is it's a gateway drug for impressionable, irresponsible teens and young adults.

In my opinion that last line is highly debatable. I would not trust the "research" that's out there. If teens wanna do real hard drugs they will just go straight to them, if that's the intention then why not cut out the middleman?

It's not like Marijuana eases you into harder drugs, it certainly didn't work that way with me that's for sure, and so many others that I speak to on a daily basis, as I'm a voluntary counsellor for many of these "impressionable" teens.

Marijuana doesnt "ease them into it". It creates a curiosity factor when they get bored with it. Especially people who do it habitually and develop tolerance to it.


They start with marijuana, like the highs, then suddenly everyone wants to do shrooms, then ecstasy and acid, then God knows what else....then it starts into cocaine/dope territory.


That seemed to be the normal hierarchy when I was in HS...which as many of you know, wasn't that long ago.


People just don't go out and take hard drugs, their is a big intimidation factor when it comes to that....marijuana eases a lot of people's minds about drug use and contributes to people starting heavier drugs a lot more than people want to think.

I smoked a lot of weed in my teens. I also told every single person that offered me extasy/coke/heroin to **** off.

Like Liza said, if teens want to try hard drugs, they'll try them regardless. Just like people can say no to harder drugs regardless of marijuana use. I suppose marijuana does create curiosity, but still...
