Also the domestic production of hemp. Possibly the most useful plant on the planet.

Yes, most definitely. Many of the early detractors of Marijuana were actually from other industries which felt Hemp would ruin their business.

No, that goes too far but I can sell you a hidden video camera and set it up for you if you like. The live feed goes straight into the precinct, criminals often wonder why they got caught so fast.

Me?

No

But I thought you would since you said you thought we should become a police state.

Just trying to be helpful.

You didnt detect a note of sarcasm in my response? I'm the last guy on the planet that would want to turn the US into a police state. Just the opposite in fact. That's why I support the legalisation (or at least decriminalisation) of marijuana. The police have enough real crime to deal with without busting some kid for smoking a joint.

Oh sarcasm.

Sarcasm is the ugliest form of "humor". I HATE sarcasm. I don't like using it on others so I ask others not to use sarcasm on me.

I'm here to talk straight with others, but if you use sarcasm on me then can you deal with it when my pretty sharp form of sarcasm is used back on you?

Your post about bringing back prohibition deserved sarcasm. If not outright ridicule.

That was my rep for you. I clicked the wrong thing.

Nothing deserves sarcasm, IMO people only use this horrible form of "humor" known as sarcasm when they can't win a debate through facts.

Liquor is an ugly thing. Tastes bad, broke up more families, killed a lot of people too soon, caused billions of all kinds of accidents, broke up romances or started fights because the guard gets dropped and the stupid things are said, made people commit crimes.

There's still a lot of people who are 100% against drinking. It's about time that WE were heard.

Personally I could do very well if I never had a drink for the rest of my life.

But its you, you and you who I am worried about.

BAN THAT GARBAGE!
