well this turned out much more civil than i was expecting. i'm glad to have enlightened you on some of the bull**** that's going on with people who just want to get a little high.
also, selling ****s to kids is wrong. i didn't do anything till i was in my later years of college, and i think that's the way to go. you have time to mature and develop your reasoning before you influence them. this way you don't "go bad".
anyway, something i've come to think about. the concept of "getting high" has such a stigma to it, but all around me i look at the "straigt edge" world and see examples of hypocrisy. for instance, have you ever watched someone who smokes cigarettes? it's a ritual to them, something they desire and need, at times, more than anything.
smoking a cigarette is just the same as "getting high". they smoke to feel differently. same with alcohol. the worst part, is that marijuana is almost a billion times better than tobacco or alcohol. there is no know leathel dosage of marijuana, and while it can cause the same lung problems as cigarettes, there are dozens of healthy, smoke-free options like vaporizors to use marijuana with. you can also eat it.
the point is that the prohibition on marijuana has nothing to do with the marijauan itself, the health factors invovled--as evidenced by its irrefutible pain-management benefits--and even the people who use/buy/sell/grow marijuana.
it's not a **** simply because people call it one.
