Might as well start the new name the WEED HOUSE.

On one corner we will have the crack houses and the same weed head druggies type of people will be running the weed houses on the other corner.
I'm guessing you haven't read much on the medical studies of marijuana. Try not to be ignorant in this discussion

To start addressing your ignorant statement, you can do some homework and look up the drug marinol and get back to me

That doesn't mean it exerts its effect that entire time

Fyi, the medically approved appetite stimulant, marinol, can stay in the body for years. Doesn't mean it makes people hungry that entire time

Sorry but I already did my research and you failed to read it or did not understand it.

Report back to me once you read and if you need help getting to those links I already provided.

OMG I cannot imagine the true "potheads" on our roads.

These idiots will be driving high as a kite and killing even more people then their own brain cells.

Dont fall for the BS they need it for medical. Most of these potheads will need it to feel better and the medical issue wont go away until they can get even more.

We have illegals on our roads driving on the wrong side, cannot read English, we have drunks and druggies on our roads killing innocent people every day and now we might have to deal with weedheads too?

Marijuana smoking causes short term memory loss, apathy, inappropriate appetite and short term memory loss, but I don't really care one way or the other cause I'm too hungry to argue about it right now and short term memory loss.

I wasnt directly referring to what you posted that I felt was fantasy.


"Hooked on that stuff". Come now. It is not addictive. psychoactive properties does not indicate that psychological effects would be brought upon anyone.

I've been around people for most of my life who smoke marijuana. They are from all walks of life.
The only negative effect I have seen in any of them is a tendency to crave food after using weed and
to be very calm and relaxed. Should bus drivers, airline pilots and surgeons pass around a doobie before performing their duties? Of course not. Just as you wouldnt want to have any of them stopping off
at the local bar and have a couple of alcoholic drinks.

Denver CO is our nations testing ground. The Netherlands and Uruguay approve marijuana sale and use.
Once the U.S. goes further towards legalization I would be most of the world follows suite just as they did when America decided to outlaw it.

BTW, even the THC metabolites (over 100 of them) have psychoactive properties - major safety concerns with that.....imagine bus drivers, airline pilots, surgeons hooked on that stuff and practicing their profession.

Bad news.

"potheads" have been driving on the roads for decades. Its apparently a non issue. Alcohol is the drug that needs to be prohibited. Those alcoholics killing more than their own brain cells and their internal
organs.

I wouldnt be too concerned with it since it has been happening for decades but the governments finely have come to the conclusion that they are fighting a silly battle and that the economic benefits to their states will be huge.

Full legalization will allow the cops to concentrate on more serious matters than people smoking a PLANT.

I have to comment again.......

ADDICTED TO POT?

That high statistic comes from the amount of people in a drug rehabilitation program for marijuana.

WHY are they in the rehab program?

Because they got caught with a small amount of pot, and the judge says participate in this drug program and pay no fines and no jail time. It isnt because they are *actually* addicted to it. Another (hugely) inflated statistic!
