Good grief, what total crap.

Anything you don't agree with you automatically trot out the "leftists" as the boogeyman causing something we should all fear.

Alcohol prohibition was NOT foisted on the USA by leftists of any stripe. It was forced on us by the biggest bunch of tight-ass bible thumping ultra-conservative white witches the world has ever seen; they bullied and barked until the nation adopted the Volstead Act.

Inane talk about "unintended consequences" should recognize that overnight the prohibition of alcohol brought about by the ultra-conservatives turned most of our adults into criminals for having a few beers or a glass of wine. Worse, it created a national web of organized crime that we still fight to this day. Are you going to spin a story that organized crime was not an "unintended consequence" and that those women actually intended to spawn organized crime, corruption, death, blindness from drinking tainted alcohol, and dirty fortune of the Kennedy family?

NONE of the "unintended consequences" of prohibition was caused by "leftists" of any kind, it was the ultra-conservative schmucks of the Women's "Christian" Temperance Union that wreaked this havoc upon my father's generation. Those good christians, those saintly do-gooders, did horrendous and lasting damage to our nation.

The same mis-guided ultra-conservative pukes are still battling for prohibition of something, anything, that they can rant about from their church and political pulpits, keeping the gullible rubes quivering with fear in their pews, deathly afraid of inter-racial marriage, black voting rights, equality for all, fear of alcohol, fear of a plant, or fear of gay marriage, or fear of labor unions, or fear of a black man in the white house, or fear of a nuclear power plant, or fear of the leftists coming to take all yer gunz, or fear of universal medical insurance ..... or fear of .... or fear of .... it never ends .... the use of fear to bilk billions from fools and rubes ....

It's time for prohibition of MJ to end. When it does we'll all be better off, and it will have nothing to do with any leftists, just common sense and sanity.

[quote=SoButCounty;26909518]My cardiologist is informed of my daily cannabis use at my checkup every 6 months. He does not advise me to abstain. I've smoked with my family doctor on numerous occasions in social settings.

Your question is ludicrous.

Didn't you already have a heart attack?

You honestly don't think the tachycardia it causes has any effect?

I mean, it's not just a little bit of tachycardia. It can increase your heartrate considerably.

My resting heartrate was in the 40s, but when I smoked the good stuff, my heart would get up to the 110s and 120s.

You're telling me that it's healthy for that to happen?

What if you excercise? I think more studies need to be done and for those that want to be pilots, it should still be illegal.

Pot does slow your mind down and make you more forgetful. There is a difference between a sober mind with no THC in your system and a mind that still has traces of THC.

I love it when you get mad! No joke, that was absolutely beautiful.

With so much hatred in your heart, you are doing far more damage to your heart than any amount of mj intake would do. Smoke a joint, and chill out for a few hours. A little time in a happy state of mind would be good for your heart.

There is no hatred there at all. I've having a delightful time debating and it's one of my favorite hobbies.

There are "unintended consequences" and the people that cause them never seem to want to clean them up or pay for them. I think that is fair don't you?

For me personally I'm not taking a harmful substance and a drug into my body. You can, but I'm not.

I think you are in a state of denial. Whenever you post something with a political overtone, the hatred comes oozing out.

When did I say I was ever for prohibition of alcohol? I didn't.

The same misguided leftist pukes are still battling to divide and segregate, kill babies, cause societal and moral breakdown, raise taxes, increase regulation, fool people with phony baloney scams like global warming and peak oil, ruin the medical care system, impose tyranny, take choice away from people, shut down electricity generation, it never, ever ends, the use of tyranny to strip individual freedoms and liberties away, Trillions and Trillions of deficit spending and collapsing the US dollar.

I think you have no idea what you are talking about. I'm sitting here laughing right now. I've got no hatred at all. You mistake debating for taking things personally. It's a debate and exchange of ideas, nothing personal.
