Nay.  Bad for the kids, bad for the brain, bad for productivity.

In addition to being psychologically addicting, it tends to destroy the cells.  Its a toxin.  It kills cells.  By definition it is bad.

I quit 20+ years ago, when I got to CA.

When I was a kid I smoked the the old weak stuff, like Panama Red and Acapulco Gold. I got to Santa Cruz, the damned stuff was so powerful I had to drop it. Couldn't handle it. :blush:

It's true, the stuff today, is what San Simeon was to a lid of Mexican rag, at least 10 times stronger.

You can generally gauge the depth of a person's understanding of private property, the law, individual liberty and the role of government, on this single issue.

I can't disagree.

My approach would be to have everything decriminalized, but at the same time, I would stop sugar coating reality, and start exposing kids, from about 11 or 12 onward, to very graphic and unedited pictures of drug overdose victims, drunk driving crashes, etc., along with the life experiences of those that had succumbed to that kind of lifestyle.

I think we would have a much more intelligent and informed population. Not more drug users.

Certainly can't disagree with you.

I also think that doing away with public education is probably the single change that would pay off the most in terms of cultivating a more informed and intelligent population.

Anything that is done in the free market, is done better than anything that government has to offer.

A limited and rational amount of, (government enforced), laws will keep the free market honest and flowing freely.

Well I agree with the first statement- entirely.

And the second statement introduces an exception that I just can't agree with.

It is my contention that law is best produced in a private market, just as anything else.

I would further argue that when the state takes over the production and enforcement of the law, that the product is diminished greatly.

Poll: Feds should butt out of states that legalize pot

"But the poll also showed that attitudes about legalizing pot for recreational use are almost evenly split, with 49 percent opposed and 47 percent in favor, which is with in the poll’s plus-or-minus 3.8 percent margin of error.

All age groups under 64 are in favor of legalization, with those 64 and older opposing it by a 54 to 41-percent margin."

That's where we part ways. I think the founders' thoughts on government's role were pretty good.

I posted the poll to further the discussion but I would add that one exception hardly constitutes an entire poll or that it's representative of all those polled.   :huh:  So just because one is under 64, I'd say it's a stretch to conclude the poll is flawed on that factor alone. :biggrin:





I think it's safe to say that we already have that ("Young kids and Drugs") regardless of the debate over pot legalization.
