I'm tired of people accepting the excuse of "that's just the way things are." I'm a pacifist, but I'm not passive.



We have all the WRONG lobbyist pushing in this country and getting laws written and passed monthly. Meanwhile lobbyist for the PEOPLE can't get jack sh*t passed.

Illegal? Seems Microsoft's Jamen Shively doesn't really care.

tell me what contribution greasy fast food makes to society??


like I said before everybody is a criminal...


oh and by the way I do no other drugs than weed, I drink booze only on a rare moon. so would you rather me give up weed and go back to the worse drug booze??
I really don't care if they do. Alchohol use doesn't serve any purpose either. Unfortuntetly, as we saw during prohibition, it's nearly impossible to go backwards. One legal drug is one too many but we're stuck with one. We can make sure we don't have others to contend with. I'd love to see tobacco made illegal as well but you can't do that when you have people who are addicted to it as a legal drug. There is a difference between making something legal illegal and never legalizing something in the first place. We're stuck with alcohol and tobacco. That's enough.

If we legalize marijuana, why not just legalize everything? Why is marijuana special? We either condone drug use or we don't. Personally, I don't. I see what drugs do to the kids I teach.

I wish people would realize what they are supporting when they buy drugs. The disregard that drug users have for life is appalling. They support drug dealers who have no regard for life and don't care as long as they get high. Nice people....

If people stopped buying drugs, the world would be a better place. Unfortunately, drug users don't care about that. I have no respect for illegal drug users.

Anyone using drugs is self medicating. You should know the proper dosage of any medication you take and you should be under a doctor's care when using them. Not everyone responds the same to the same drugs.

alcohol is worse than mj.. kind of odd that you would rather see the harder drug stay legal..

I choose weed and it should be a choice..

do I have to say this again, i wish people would realize that if they buy consumer goods made with slave wage labor they support slavery.. oh and by the way I buy locally grow cannabis..

If people stopped buying drugs, the world would be a better place. Unfortunately, drug users don't care about that. I have no respect for illegal drug users.
in a perfect utopia..

if people stopped voting for morons we would have laws that represent the majority, every poll I see now days is in favor for legalization..

if people stopped buying alcohol they would not support big alcohol..

if people stopped eating greasy foods they would be healthier.

if auto companies made cars that only go 60 mph less traffic fatalities would result.

if people stopped texting and driving we would see lots of lives saved..

if people did not litter we would not have the pacific vortex

just to name a very few..

only in a perfect world

Well, dang.

I'm beginning to wish I smoked pot simply to tick off all the people who try to use our constitution as their holier-than-thou card.
