Don't try to fool people into believing you actually care about those with drug problems. You've done nothing but name calling since the beginning.
Amen.

Yes you are. You're calling users of cannabis who are not causing harm to others criminals, as well as making ASSumptions that they're addicts. Ever hear of moderation? Yes even cannabis users practice it.

Why do you feel that you should be able to decide what other grown adults do with their life?
Some people just feel the need to control others or use the boots of government force to do it.

About a third said it would lead people to try more serious drugs, down from 39 percent in 2010.
Of course the public is less apt to feel this way. Because guess what??? The whole "marijuana is a gateway drug" theory is... wait for it.... BULL****!!!!

So you enjoy keeping a black market, therefore keeping the cartels in business and the crime that goes along with prohibition? People like Al Capone thank you for continuing to allow them to operate, and getting filthy rich off of it too. Then again, I suppose you're working for one of the special interests, and therefore; even the legalization of cannabis is a threat to your wallet. I find it absolutely ludicrous that people seek to profit on criminalizing Americans for use of a plant that was legal to use up until the first part of the 20th Century, because certain industries had to whine to the government, because they couldn't compete with a natural fiber!

Well, if calling a criminal a criminal is now 'name calling', then I guess I am guilty. Until today, it would have been called "stating a fact".

You'll have to excuse me if I have a hard time labelling someone smoking a joint as a criminal. You're in essence trying to lump them in with people who are actually criminals, such as murderers, rapists, or those who steal, embezzle, and commit violent acts. Therefore, I along with those who also support cannabis legalization take a little bit of an exception to being lumped in with the real dregs of society as mentioned above. But I guess that is what prohibitionists do best. They don't like something, so they criminalize it, and then attach that label people. How convenient.

Hey... I caught myself doing 5 mph over the speed limit this morning on the way to work. I guess since I broke that rule, that makes me a criminal in this case too. If we're using Finn's logic of course.

She's criminal in supporting direct violations to our Constitution by her definition.



For their to be a criminal, there has to be a victim. Whether a person, property, or to the community/state.

Well, a person who commits criminal acts is a criminal. It's pretty simple.

It is obviously you who doesn't know.

Criminal = a person who has committed a crime

Synonyms = lawbreaker, wrongdoer
