Don't flatter yourself. You only think you known what you're talking about. You have no grasp of the facts whatsoever. You're even afraid to debate "losers" like us so you simply resort to name calling.

Real adult Bob....

What's sad about her is that she's a 24 year old concubine... just sayin'.

I voted "NO" on the poll because imo, it's flawed from the start. It should read, "Should the United States of America legalize MJ?"

The USA aspect would be a poll someone should start in the P&OC forum, but I'm content to keep this poll focused on our fair state, since we'll have it on the ballot this fall.

I really have to doubt you've been close at all to a rehab center or a homeless shelter--stops that a whole lot of dopers make on their journey into the abyss. What I've observed in those places with respect to drug use and its predictable consequences is far more compelling than any so-called "fact" any self-confessed drug abuser wants to throw out here.

Drug use destroys lives, plain and simple, and oh yes I do know what I'm talking about, whether you like that or not.

Does Alcohol destroys lives?
Does Food destroys lives?
Do car accidents destroy lives?
Do sporting accidents destroy lives?
People destroy their own lives ?

In stead of the govt and locals picking up the tap for methadone clinics i mean rehab etc etc. Lets collect a TAX that can be used for these programs.

Folks are already using pot. Decriminalize and legalize it. Collect A tax.

Thank God for that! Many of us boomers are waking up too. I believe almost NOTHING that I read, hear, or see in the mainstream media. It's almost 100% b*llsh*t across the board, and if it comes thru FAUX news it IS 100% b*llsh*t!

Ah yes, I forgot Bob. You are (as you have referred to me before), "a legend in your own mind".

Shucky darn. Criticism from a self-confessed drug abuser. How could I not take you seriously?

Ask any cop...a drug pipe is standard issue gear for those living on the street. Oh yeah, now tell me that their drug use had nothing to do with how they ended up there.

But hey, you just keep paddling...that river in Egypt is very long indeed.

Well Bob, I gotta agree that your statement is accurrrte as far as it goes, but it doesn't have very long legs. Chances are pretty darn good that there was very intense stress in their lives PRIOR to their drug ( including alcohol ) use. Here in GJ, many of the homeless are military vets who have fallen on hard times. While serving the country in combat zones, sh*t happens and they come back to the USA with PTSD and much worse. Additionally they get screwded over and neglected by the very government they served with their military service. So, in the bigger picture, a drug pipe is pretty small potatoes on their path to homelessness.
