Just joking dear.

I don't really mind tobacco being legal -- I don't choose to use it and try to stay away from those who do (and I do like having it banned from use in public places because people smoking in enclosed public places force me to breathe smoky air). I would like to make marijuana as legal as tobacco, or actually as legal as alcohol since it does have an altering effect, but also with restrictions similar to what cigarette smokers face because of the smoke. Then the people who don't wish to use it don't have to, but the people that do can.

I don't see pot as any more of a "gateway" drug than alcohol or cigarettes.

I did numerous studies on the effects of pot...and the results found that it did not make me smarter. Quite the opposite.

QED.

great... all I need is for some of my stupid friends to hear this so they can justify smoking this stuff! There going to be researching this question for a long time. It's still not going to stop those who take it.

I should have guessed some quack would have written a book saying tobacco is good for you.

Doesn't matter if it is good for you or not, Melon. I know tobacco is not good for me, but if anyone trys to make me stop, they will get a swift kick to the head. End of story. What the hell gives anyone the right to lecture me?

What does Libertarian have to do with it? I thought the Republicans had the market for ignoring science.

I think that the left is just as good at ignoring science when it suits their interests; for example "race as a social construct" which come to think of it could lead to one hell of an OT.

[q]Report: 92 Percent Of Souls In Hell There On Drug Charges
October 12, 2005 | Issue 41•41

HELL—A report released Monday by the Afterlife Civil Liberties Union indicates that nine out of 10 souls currently serving in Hell were condemned on drug-related sins.

"Hell was created to keep dangerous sinners off the gold-paved streets of Heaven," ACLU spokesman Barry Horowitz said. "But lately, it's become a clearing-house for the non-evil souls that Heaven doesn't know how to deal with."

The disproportionate number of drug offenders in Hell is a result of God's "get tough" drug policy of the 80s A.D., imposed after Roman emperor Domitian Flavius introduced opium to his people. God's detractors say His reactionary "one sin and you're out" rule places too harsh a penalty on venial drug users.

According to God's law, souls who possess four ounces of illegal drugs at any point during their mortal lives face a mandatory minimum sentence of eternity.

High-ranking seraphim in the Eternal Justice Department defended God's law.

"It's all about accountability," the angel Nathanael said. "The rule of the Lord affords the complementary blessings of freedom and responsibility, and provides the governing framework under which man is punished or rewarded according to his deeds. The rules are very simple: You do the crime, you do the time. Eternity, in this case."

The ACLU report included profiles of hundreds of offenders condemned to eternal perdition under God's law. Among them is Pvt. Robert "Bobby Joe" Hetfield, a World War I fighter and amputee who became addicted to morphine during his last 72 hours of life on a French battlefield in 1918. As punishment, Hetfield has spent nearly a century cleaning Beelzebub's dope house every morning by consuming the urine, excrement, and vomit left by Satan and his revelers.

Another offender listed in the ACLU report is Huachuri, an Incan peasant who used a coca-leaf-based marital aid in 1311. As punishment, he is sodomized continually by a winged, razor-penised goat.

I am not so sure cigarette smoking is the correct or analogous abuse substance to be compared to marijuana.

I liken it much more to alcohol drinking, and ignoring my own opinions about pot, I truly cannot see why alcohol is legal to be sold over the counter, but pot is not.

One is proven to be addictive, one has not been proven to be addictive.

Both inebriate you to a certain degree, for some in much the same ways.

Why is pot illegal? Because it is a plant that grows and is not manufactured by big business?

The day pot becomes legal is the day big manufacturers jump in on the game and the GDP goes up. Why then does the government dislike this substance, but allows alcohol producers advertise in every form of media available?

I just do not get it.
