The government doesn't like appearing wrong.

But for you in particular, it should be legal. For no other reason than you'd need a pick me up after being a browns fan.

Hey now Memphis! Them's fightin' words! Don't be hatin' on my Cleveland Browns, LOL! Yeah, it they can be painful to watch, but being born and raised in NE Ohio, the Browns are a part of life, and a part of growing up. It always seemed that during football season family functions or other social functions on Sundays revolved around the Browns games. Whether I was at a friends house, at my grandmothers, or my parents were throwing a party, the Browns were on, and sometimes were the reason for the gathering. Especially during the 80s. Despite the heartbreak, the good thing about it is, we always have hope, and that's part of being a fan. Say what you want, but what other fanbase fought the way we did to keep our name, history, and colors and get a team back in 3 short years? Other cities like Baltimore (where Modell ironically moved the original franchise) and St. Louis weren't afforded that luxury. But I absolutely agree that you have to be high to watch them half the time! Otherwise, I would have thrown a brick through my tv a long time ago!

But I digress. Despite the government not liking to be wrong, well... sometimes you just gotta suck it up, and eat crow. Why wouldn't they do more research on it and perhaps allow it to be tested on people? I would happily volunteer my services. For a small fee of course.

They did allow that. Nixon's own scientific study on it proved that it was almost harmless. Same thing with Reagan.

They focused on three lines in both studies that suggested that teens shouldn't be smoking it, and left the rest of it alone.

As far as the browns, the thirstier the drinker, the sweeter the drink.

So then with that said, I say it's "high" time to repeal the prohibition!


As for the Browns if and when (I'm being optimistic so I'll go with when) they win it all someday it will be that much sweeter. And at least I can say I was there during the lean times.

Not all illegal drugs are sold in that environment.

Yes they can,and do it quite often. SWAT teams break down doors all over this country on the basis of very flimsy evidence.

I agree. Speeders can kill you in an instant.

Are we talking one or two plants or are we talking a farm in the backyard?
