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.

...what are you talking about? setting a bad example because I'm listing facts and legitimate reasons that marijuana should be legal? If you go back and read my previous posts, you'll see a variety of reasons that keeping it illegal would be, to use your favorite word, morally wrong. Nowhere did I suggest kids should go out and smoke pot, but nice try at making another nonsensical argument.

Study finds no Cancer-Marijuana connection.

Look, foxnews.com even has the same story!
http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,196678,00.html

Marijuana unlikely to cause head, neck, or lung cancer.

Marijuana has NEVER been a factor in murder from someone who is "high" on it. Marijuana has never ruined my life, but alcohol sure did. I lost my father at age 19 to it.

It's also been proven that more people binged on alcohol during prohibition and more illegal activity was involved with it (rum running, bootlegging, etc.) It's the exact same with marijuana.

And if it's regulated like alcohol is in Canada (outside of Quebec) it is much tougher for kids to get their hands on than it is now. Now, it's being sold in schoolyards. We have the "LCBO" Liquor Control Board Ontario where alcohol can only be sold in government run stores. Proper checks are in place so anyone under legal age cannot purchase. That's the way it should be with grass too.

Remember my teacher who was murdered a year ago?

The ****wad who murdered her was DRUNK when he murdered her.

Man pleads guilty in stabbing death

Dec 17, 2008 - 04:05:33 CST
[TOWN NAME] (AP) - A man charged with killing a [town name] woman has pleaded guilty to murder, saying he was drunk when he stabbed her to death.

[****er] admitted in court Tuesday that he killed [teacher], 43, a teacher at [school] who was stabbed to death in her home March 1. Her body was found the next day.

[****er], 27, told Judge [name] that he went to [teacher]'s home uninvited, got a knife from her kitchen and stabbed her a number of times while she lay in her bed. He said he was drunk at the time.

Defense attorney [name] read a statement he said was written by [****er], in which [****er] apologized to [teacher]'s family for what he called an "unforgivable crime" and said, "If I could bring her back, I would."

County prosecutor [name] said [teacher] had dated [****er]'s brother and the victim and [****er] knew each other socially. He said a motive for the killing may never be known.

"I would be surprised, given the alcohol usage, whether there was much thought process for motive," [County prosecutor] said.

The prosecutor said [****er] left [teacher]'s home after killing her, then returned the next day pretending to discover the body.

[****er] is to be sentenced Feb. 3.

It makes me so angry whenever I think about it. This guy ****ED up big time. The same guy has made so many mistakes, and alcohol was always somehow involved. AND LOOK. HE'S ONLY TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS OLD. He was 26 when he murdered her.

I don't know anyone who has ****ed up their lives because of pot, and I know a LOT of pot smokers. OH MY GOD WHAT A CONCEPT.

Ummm... Unless I'm WAY off, you turned 10 years old in 1971. Which means you would have been in 5th grade THAT year. How does 1971 = 1960s?

Close enough. 1971 was still like the '60s anyway!

What is important is that I lived through my teen years staying as far away from marijuana as possible. That is what good kids do.

Well aren't YOU the little goody golden boy. I know lots of "good" kids who never used grass who were a long way off from being good kids.

But I'm glad you see yourself as so far superior to us "bad kids".

So you dropped the "marijuana causes cancer" argument?

Hey, it's better on this side, Tripp! You're making pot muffins for us! I can call some of my drag queen friends from West Hollywood and we can all sing Donna Summer karaoke!

Fleet, your arguments all along this have no merit.

Then I guess you had to resort to petty attacks; such as the "bad example" as an attempt to shed a bad light on those that disagree with you and make you look like "the good guy".

The gateway theory - Has never been proven.

Marijuana leads to violence - Not one reported incident on any violent behavior as a result of the influence of this drug.

Another thing, why would the few religions that use cannabis in their rituals use it if the effect makes you uncontrollable and violent? They use it for "spiritual awakening" and meditation; not crazyness.

Marijuana leads to decay of society - It has an unwarranted negative stigma attached to it. Alcohol and tobacco have been doing not much good for people all this time but nobody says anything bad about it because it's legal and found everywhere.

Marijuana smoke contains more carcinogens - As I have stated before this could be true but tobacco smokers take in much, much more of the smoke due to the nicotine and other crap the companies put into them.


I think you are still pwned Fleet. You've been pwning yourself.

No it does not. Marijuana is an HERB, it's all natural, it comes from the ground. Tobacco, on the other hand, is chemically processed in some giant factory where they embed it with all those 1500 cancerous causing chemicals in it before they sell it. Do you see people growing pot, putting all those cancer causing chemicals in it? No. It's grown, picked and smoked. End of story.

This statement is not only insane. It's laughable. Wow... sorry excuse me for a minute, gotta go spark up this roach... I don't think I can handle this "Fleet" on a sober level.

Yeah, I don't know where that one got pulled from.
At the D.C. rally I was at with all of the pot smokers there should have been an immense riot.

I don't drink nor do I do drugs, but that's just me. Even I don't see the harm in legalizing it. To me it's along the same lines as alcohol. That's just as dangerous to me, so why isn't that illegal, too? I just don't see the big deal if something like alcohol can be socially accepted. That doesn't mean I think either are okay...I think it's stupid as hell to go and get smashed, or to get high, but if that's what people want to do let them. I really could care less. As long as it's regulated just like alcohol and tobacco, I'd say it's just fine to legalize it.

I can't do this anymore. This thread makes my brain ****ing BREAK.

Saying that 1971 was just like the 1960s is like me saying 1991 was just like the 1980s. These were entirely different decades. Sure, fashions and TV shows from the 80s carried over to the early 90s, but...

Oh wait. Why am I bothering? Look at this thread. No other conservatives are arguing. It's just good 'ole Fleet.

It's just funny to me the way people view weed. Like it's some terrible drug that makes you craZAyy and do dangerous and wild things. Seriously?
