FML - The follow-up
katzperiod Say more :
Ok, my turn on my own post. My slip up came because it is very hard for me to organize my thoughts when I don't write them down and also because of frequent personal use. This is all besides the point of the debate though. I oppose the marijuana laws for both my own selfish reasons and from an economic-minded libertarian approach. It is written in the Declaration of Independence that all men are entitled to their own pursuit of happiness. From a public health point, marijuana does not physic

I'm just gonna give everyone reading this a preview of what the res of the comments are. First someone says something provocative and ignorant like "weed is Harmless", than someone replies, and than everyone has to get their two centss worth in about weed

the legalization of weed isn't that big of a deal, it's bound to happen at some point, people just need to learn to accept that, I'm not for or against it, it's just that people need to calm down

You do realise that the criminal activity that's connected to narcotics are of a different nature than "killing and raping". By smoking weed young people are aiding an entire industry based on illegality and often involving themselves is such crimes

Asshole teacher. He probably smokes/smoked more than you do back in his day. And if this was reversed Ie: the person debating against legalization lost their train of thought and someone suggested they were playing both sides of the fence *wink wink, nudge nudge* then they would probably get very annoyed and angry that you suggest they smoke (generalization I know but most people I have spoken to that are against legalization have never touched the stuff.. never will and think anyone that does

it's all because of money, alcohol and tobacco are only sold for money, and hemp plants are illegal because it's a lot cheaper then cotton, paper from tree pulp, etc...

Actually, all politicians are commies now, and making drugs illegal is proof. All they want to do is control our lives and make us believe they know something about what they're doing.

What I think the author meant was that it turns ordinary people into criminals because it's illegal. If it wasn't illegal, these people would not be criminals anymore, they'd just go back to being ordinary people.

Government spending isn't a bad thing, boosts GDP, and right now I think the world could do with some of that. Inn other words, people who smoke weed are aiding in the recovery of the economy! If that's not a great argument I don't know what is.

You don't get GDP do you? Government spending doesn't boost GDP because it is taken from the tax base and thus has already been counted. The only way it can boost gdp is when it is used to create non government jobs.

marijuana turns normal people into criminals? yea no... maybe because they are smoking illegal, not refrence to things like robberies, thefts.. and the "propoganda" reason to why its still illegal is horseshit, and anyone who knows anything about the current arguments about marijuana legalization knows that. They have no scientific proof that it is extremely dangerous the ONLY reason it still remains illegal, is because if the government does decide to legalize it, they cannot tax it to it

I can grow fuckin tomatoes in my yard, is that legal? Yep! Do people still buy tomatoes? Yep! Your point sucks, just cause if it's legal people can grow it, doesn't mean everyone that will ever smoke pot will take the time and effort to grow it. Don't be dumb
