I don't really expect those who love marijuana to believe anything negative about it anyway.

ad hominem

Try attacking the points that have been made instead of the person making the points, it would be a good step in improving your debating skills..and so far, I don't believe you've refuted anything, or even attempted to refute any of the points made.

The problem with your "quotes" is that you failed to mention is they're directed toward teens using marijuana. Legalization wouldn't likely allow teens to smoke it, nor does anyone think getting ripped and then going to school is a good idea.

In the thousands of years marijuana has been used, guess how many documented cases there are of marijuana causing cancer?

Hint: It starts with a "z", and ends with an "ero".

And as for your claim that there is a correlation with smoking pot and being violent...that's one of the more laughable claims you've made, right up there with the gateway effect. The only "violence" someone feels after smoking pot is how fast and viciously they can tear apart a bag of cheetos. Take a look at a majority of these links, they send that ridiculous claim right down the toilet.

We may be living in a faster world, but no way is it more stressful or pressure-packed than the '30s and '40s. When was the last time you engaged in an air-raid drill? Or saw a house with a bomb shelter? When was the last time your father skipped dinner because there wasn't enough food to go around for the whole family?

But I thought the US still had morals then? Air raids and bomb shelters?

Never have I come across or heard about someone violent and aggressive while under marijuana.

This just keeps getting more laughable...

Absolutely right. When/If marijuana becomes legal it will most likely be for 18+ or 21+; with the exception of doctor's prescription for medical use otherwise.

Guaranteed those in high school and younger will not be allowed to purchase it.

And of course a Google search is ironclad!

You can find just about anything you want on an internet search. But how much of it is accurate?

More like kids were more likely to have (2) parents and parents that were strict. And a society with high values and morals in general.

There can still be morals during a Cold War. Read up on it!

I ask the same to you.

The evidence out there speaks for itself. Marijuana does not cause people to act violently. That is just absurd.

You do realize you are setting a very poor example for any teens who visit this site?
I hope they listen to me and not you.

And how many documented cases have there been regarding marijuana and cancer? How many studies have been done on that? Marijuana smoke contains more cancer-causing agents (carcinogens) than is found in tobacco smoke.

Oh that's great. You label someone as a bad example because they don't agree with you. Don't try to sound all righteous.

About the tobacco vs. marijuana smoke, it could be true that marijuana contains more carcinogens but you have to also take in one important fact.

The cigarette companies add extra crap to it; such as nicotine. That makes you want more of it and that is why so many more people chain-smoke cigarettes.

People, at least the ones I am familiar with, don't nearly smoke as much marijuana as those that do with tobacco. I know of no chain-weed smokers. So the tobacco smokers take in more of the material than the marijuana smokers do.

If you think that having two strict parents is going to save the world, you're sadly mistaken. Sadly mistaken. The two kids who did the Columbine shootings both came from two strict parents.

Trying to be funny does not change it.

Did a whole entire project on it!

Your "morals" didn't keep the US out of the Cold War, did it?

A Google search that sends you to social and scientific studies is quite reliable.
