I posted studies on pot, because the topic is pot. Why is that so hard to understand?

Pot doesn't exist in a vacuum.

To have an opinion on one drug, without a comparative opinion on the others, is immaculate degeneration.

How do you expect anyone to take you seriously?

Are you an island onto your own?

But the thing is, you're not correcting anything. You keep insisting over & over again that people who smoke pot go psychotic & turn into cannibals. You've got a severe reaction & viewpoint of pot that is extremely incorrect. All of us on here have tried telling you this yet you refuse to listen. I'm not sure why you're being so stubborn about this. Perhaps you had a bad reaction to pot in the past & therefore are dead set against it. Whatever it is, it's illogical. If you don't like it, you don't like it but please refrain from trying to spread completely untrue "information".

You mean like the spin, lies and half-truths that the government, and the special interest groups spew out? And the BS links you post? For cryin' out loud it is listed as a Schedule I narcotic, which states it is highly dangerous, and has no medicinal value! Which BTW cannabis is NOT a narcotic! Opiates are narcotics! But you have other substances that are more dangerous can be quite ripe for addiction, and in fact quite deadly, yet they're scheduled lower? Where is the f***n' logic in that? Also given that it is Schedule I it means that research is quite limited as to how harmful, or not cannabis truly is! WTF does the government have to hide? Oh wait, they're too busy getting their palms greased by the special interests who fear losing money by making it legal! What a crock of s***! At least let's be honest here!

Why would you have such an overall general drug bias?

The other reason is taxes. The government has not figured out the right way to put a lid on this and keep everyone happy. Once they figure it out, the tax part is probably ready to go.
Agree with you.

They also make a ton of money (Prison Industrial Complex and our Courts) by locking people up for it.


How hypocritical of our government.

It's good to know, though, that you support government control and interference over every little thing a private citizen might choose to put in their bodies as well as the billons upon billons that are clearly wasted on the "War on Drugs."
Finn_Jarber talks about references, but actually hasn't posted any.
