Oh I got it, I just think glass star screens are better.

The same can be said for pornography. What was once relegated to the bad section of town is now all over movies, TV, and sex scandals that at one time would have sunk a politicians or celebrities career is now par for the course.
Look at other things that are threatening the moral fiber of America like illegal aliens. Never before have they had more rights given to them by do gooder law makers while all the time they are breaking laws. How about the protests against Police? People used to respect the badge and the only people that hated cops were the criminals now it is left over hippies from the occupy wall street movement.

My point is once the walls of something that was illegal are eroded and broken down so it is made legal there will be repercutions in the streets until the commotion settles down. I'm sure that once everyone has tried it the numbers of sick kids will decline but the moral decay of America will continue.
I agree with you 110%!!!
You are spot on.

Take a look in the Minnesota thread under St. paul Minneapolis and the cannabis culture thread
That ought to make your head spin.

Because of the time needed from first ingestion to knowing how strong a dose you've taken, edibles have to be used with extreme caution, even by adults.
You are right on.
It IS a problem!!

Or you could just link to it, OP might not have the diligence to look it up, because the results could go against his mindset.

It never ceases to amaze me how people who use drugs, and yes, pot is a drug will defend themselves to the hilt on their drug using.
They will put children, family members, finances, employment all at risk.

And make so many out there off the wall reasons and excuses that it is just Okey dokey to use and it's not a problem. And hey, it is even better for everyone!
And they are so very good at attempting to turn it around twist it around on to you and off of them.
Just sickening

Caffeine is a drug.

Sugar, is a drug.

Do you keep yourself clear of these?

Please mind you, I am not a drug user, I'm just asking. I have thought it funny that the government can tell you what you can, and can't put into your own body, when there is no "victim". If I want to consume a flower that has been around since the dawn of time, I should be able to.

Cannabis has historically been proven to be pretty benign, there are NO overdoses associated with it, it provides relief to some of those in need of compassionate relief, and the only thing it seems to lead to is some take-out and a nap. OH GOD, HOW DANGEROUS! Yet alcohol continues to ruin lives/families.

You might have convinced yourself of what you want to believe, but the reality is, your "truth" is far from it.

Times, they are a changin'. I'd prefer to be on the right side of history.

Man, you really do think all drugs are the devil, don't you?

"They DO exist!"

Why do you seek to control what other people would like to do?

If people want to smoke pot let them.
If they want to drink let them.
If they want to watch porn let them
If they want to go buy guns let them.
Remember the days when everyone smoked cigarettes? Smokers were all over the place and I don't think anyone who has responded here would argue that people are not better off not smoking. The ads for tobacco were everywhere and it was easy to get. That is fine for the adults who should know better but the kids didn't and they lite up and got addicted.
How about booze? The advertisements used to be everywhere and were then limited or banned but are now making a comeback. You still cannot actually drink a beer on a TV commercial but you can admire it. Once again nothing wrong with that when it comes to adult consumption. Speaking of that I don't agree that a 18 kid can sign up for the military and risk life and limb but cannot order a beer at the local tavern. That is another thread.

Someone said "And there it is, the "think about the children" crap."

Well it is or at least it should be. The majority of posters here on City data would agree with me that characters like Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown etc.. etc... would have been better off and possibly still alive if they have had a better upbringing. They came from "the hood" and were witness to all sorts of bad things.

My point is kids need positive examples to become positive upstanding citizens. If kids are surrounded by high or drunk adults who watch porn then guess what they will see nothing wrong with it. Sex is everywhere, Guns are everywhere, Violence is all over the place, and kids seeing adults consuming pot and getting high is going to lead to those kids thinking it is cool and trying it themselves.
More FAIL, Todd. Positive examples = good parental standards, not Todd's standards. Sex has always been everywhere; you can watch animals mate in your back yard. Warner Bros cartoon characters had guns; does it warp one's mind? I had cap guns, BB guns and then .22s. Not every kid did, but I was raised in south TX. Violence is how we got to where we are today. Kids have always seen more graphic violence than sex on TV. Sex is natural, no? Gory and macabre violence, what movies are comprised of these days, is not.
How many kids actually see adults getting high? C'mon, Todd, be real.

What I do have a problem with is how our current society, politicians, media gives a pass to things that used to be taboo and how our kids are being raised thinking that it is the norm Some may argue that it is the norm but I think it is a shame that kids can't be kids anymore and are forced to grow up way too soon nowadays.
Dude, marijuana hasn't been taboo since the early reefer madness days. I'm 25 and from high school on, marijuana was present and not even close to taboo. You are living under a rock if you think kids are smoking pot because they were pressured into it by society or some crap like that. They are smoking it because it's awesome, end of story. You can't possibly censor society enough that high school age kids won't know about marijuana.

Legalization is going to make it harder for underage kids to get any. Before, they could hit up their dealer, who didn't care about their age. Now they have to buy it in a store because the dealers went out of business. I guarantee you that the kids who want it will still get it one way or another, it'll just be a bit harder.

So no, legal pot isn't causing any problems. At the very least, it's not causing problems that even approach the problems that prohibition has caused. Prohibition does not work, and people like you are what's keeping it going far longer then it should be. Get with the program, Todd. You're smarter then this.

It never ceases to amaze me how people can think heroin, alcohol, cocaine and meth are in any way related to marijuana. All you have to do is open your eyes to the devastation the first 4 cause, and how completely benign marijuana is (not even by comparison, benign in it's own right). It is the safest drug we have, including big Pharma's drugs (which kill and permanently maim 10's of thousands every single year, yet are as legal as can be).
