I am ready to give you the schooling that your dope smoking teachers apparently neglected.)

    I have smoked pot numerous times and spent most of my high school years surrounded by pot smokers. For some "scientist" to insist that marijuana doesn't affect your judgment and spatial awareness is flat out bull#### and anyone who has ever gotten high will tell you this. It indeed induces paranoia in many users - that is a demonstrable truth. Which is neither here nor there; my main concern about a drugged up populace is....why make it easy on them to enslave you? You say you are a libertarian, and yet you willingly hold out your arms so politicians can chain you and do as they please. That makes absolutely no sense, and the main reason why I haven't joined the Libertarian Party. If they want to enslave me, they're going to have to work for it.
    Ignoring the rest of this statement, this is the first time I've ever heard someone claim that more government regs is a libertarian goal.

The reason someone gets busted for pot possession is because they in fact were affecting someone else.

    In honesty, I don't really care about pot legalization; I care about the slippery slope and unintended consequences. You are correct when you say that smoking pot is no different than drinking a few beers, and our drug problem in this country has very little to do with pot smokers. HOWEVER:

    The argument for legalizing pot can be used to legalize heroin, or meth, or cocaine, or any other more intrusive drug. Is that really what we want?

    If we agree that alcohol abuse is a serious issue, why would we want to throw marijuana abuse in that mix as well?

    Does anyone really *need* to smoke pot? The active ingredient that "sufferers" insist they want is available in other forms, and you can get a prescription from your doctor. So really, let's stop with the camouflage and be honest for a change.

    Legalizing anything does indeed encourage use. That's a fact and anyone who disputes it is full of crap.

    We're on a national vendetta against cigarettes and tobacco use, yet....we want to encourage the smoking of pot. Really? There are numerous studies that show marijuana is physically way worse for you than tobacco. Second hand smoke? Ha. How about contact high?

    Not to mention, if we are equating pot smoking with beer drinking, drinking a beer doesn't get everyone around you drunk. So it would have to be regulated strictly, as in NO public consumption. Which means we're back where we started with pot smokers enjoying in their homes in private, and getting arrested if they're getting baked in public.



    There's no point in legalizing marijuana, and legalizing will not reduce crime by one single case.
    This is actually a very good argument...


    for repealing the 21st amendment.

    Hey, if they'd go OD and leave me out of it, I'd be way okay with it. But that's never - ever - the way it works out. These people's "personal choices" have an ugly habit (ha) of becoming my problem, whether financially or by increased crime.

    Besides, I am unaware of a Constitutional amendment prohibiting drug use. Which one is it?

    Same as people's drinking habit?
    I'm not sure where the constitutional amendment prohibiting drug use statement came from or where you're going with it, so I'm going to ignore it for the nonce.

    Yep. We are not nearly tough enough on true drunk driving. We set these silly limits and some guy who's had two beers gets popped, but habitual drunk drivers don't lose their license. They don't spend a lot of time in jail. It's a money making scheme, and not a true public safety measure. But MADD can virtue-signal because they are "doing something " by targeting light to moderate drinkers. So since we don't punish destructive drunks in this country, now we shouldn't punish destructive druggies either?

    You said "repealing the 21st Amendment", which I took to mean that the 18th would stand, and alcohol would essentially be prohibited.

    I meant that your argument for keepin it illegal is a better argument for making liquor illegal than it is for making pot legal. Any argument you make for making your drug of choice legal is just as valid for any other drug. A couple of them have a slightly better excuse than the others just because of their historic roots, pot, mescaline, liquor and a few others, but too say one is less destructive than the others is hypocritical.
