“Lies: Pot is a gateway that leads to harder drugs (vast majority of pot smokers stick with pot), promotes criminality (only because it is dumbly illegal), used to escape reality (enhances consciousness), causes brain damage (shows promise as a brain cancer cure) and is addictive (simply untrue).
Pot is a good thing for many productive people and a godsend for many ill people.
It should be free of tax and regulations, government control or medical oversight.
Whats wrong with having something (like wild berries) naturally available without charge?”

“I see quite a larger difference between your comparison of the current POTUS to a common scofflaw, besides, using 'law to the letter' to argue a position ignores the intended spirit in which that law was written.

“Maybe more truth in your comment today than back then.
But 'Reefer Madness' (the 1937 film that invented the pot scare at a time when very few teens were even interested in pot) was solely financed by Randolph Hearst in order to protect the value of his vast timber holdings (source of paper for his newspaper empire) by keeping hemp off the open market as a cheaper competitor for paper production.
The proof of this is easy for an educated person to confirm.
Ps.. the earliest pot law was drafted in Texas created as an oppressive device to use against Mexicans, the common users at the time.”

“"In forty years I've never known a chronic pot smoker who was a better person for it..."
Nobody says it makes you a better person, but it will make a person feel better.

"Most were unmotivated...."
Too bad you were not exposed to a classier social circle.

"Abrasive to be around when they weren't stoned...."
Thank god for pot, we don't want that, do we?

"Useless to be around when they were"
Many, many acclaimed daily users of cannabis.
(p.s., don't use people - use love around people)

"Blaming everyone else for their problems..."
I don't have a problem with that.

"Other than that..."
Right, other than that try to arrive at a proper conclusion next time. Use what is called objective logic rather than your subjective reasoning because its highly prejudicial and discriminatory. Try to learn why being like that is a bad thing as a whole.”

“The issue may be is pot less harmful or dangerous than alcohol, but the facts say otherwise. The fact is pot is not harmful or dangerous at all (or anymore than say chicken wings). In the future it may be proven (while only now evidence points to a high suspicion) that pot prevents cancer. Won't a past anti-pot society look stupid from a future perspective? Isn't it stupid to discriminate against enlightened users of cannabis now?”

“It quote 'the more self-awareness we have, the better we are at communicating and making personal connections' is overly simplistic; a person's ability to effectively communicate and make personal connections does not indicate a similar level of 'self-awareness',

What is 'self-awareness'? It is the awareness that 'self', I, is all an illusion. Understanding our illusions helps us to better understand our place in the universe.

Understanding that nothing matters promotes self happiness.”

“(warning: lame comment here and only lame responses are requested)

Pigs not exactly empty headed (that would be an improvement) but what is there is generally the worst aspects of human thinking; race and sexism, a desire to intimidate and frighten others, and a worse but so common trait of ego insecurity compensated with a highly motivated desire to be recognized as 'brave' and this is often achieved by the killing of innocent civilians when seen as a 'righteous shooting'.

Brave? How many justifiable murders must we witness before folks realize that shooting a frail homeless women with a butter knife 11 times or a plugging a few bullets into a driver's head because his car inched ahead? Car a dangerous weapon? Sure...but not when going 5 MPH away from you.

Yep, Kops R Dumm (not all, but most as they always co-conspire when 'having each other's backs', i.e. performing perjuries like we perform empty compliments to protect one another's service record).

Overpaid too and the job is not as dangerous as they try to lead many to believe; electrical linemen, crab fisherman, coal miners and foundry workers all have higher on the job injuries than police.

Corrupt union and sweetheart pensions/medical.....can't we just police ourselves? Please say yes by agreeing that you don't need cops but they need you.

(pop tarts are like cop farts; that's why the cops arrested the boy, IMO)”

“Wow! You can peg a person's mind after reading just one account of their behavior? Can you do this with everybody or just with people who do not agree with your practices

Your assumption of "She must not have very high hopes for him." shows you to be the very thing the first three letters of that word implies. It is called exposing your predjudices. Please stop it.

No, I think your judgement is suspect.

When will people understand that sucess or even great sucess in a career field is no indicator of someone's character- involving either vices or virtues.


You sound like one of those shallow thinkers who declare 'its wrong because its illegal.'”

“"Do judges get a kick back for sentencing?" Yes, they do.
"How bout the prosecutors?" Prosecutors want convictions, not justice.
"Do tell, who exactly is in on this plan?" One recent example of "who" can be seen in the 'cash for kids' case out of Pennsylvania (google if you doubt); two judges recieving money from a private juvenile facility operator for every young person sent to their lock-up. Good kids who were first time offenders for minor acts like trespassing or breaking city curfew ordinances were being sentenced to serve time - rather than probation - and the judges got a kickback from the operator for every ward sent his way. This went on for eight years before the case came to light and the state's Attorney General stepped in. Both judges now in a Federal run minimum security facility. I am sure their plea deal involved not being sent to a private prison.
"Give me a break." Nope, you don't get one for this.
So, how do you like them apples?”

“Wrong. Every cop is bad (except Serpico, of course). Reason being they do not uphold the law; they subvert it actually. The 'thin blue line' does not mean good versus bad...it means 'us' versus 'them'. A cop who does not turn in his partner for a crime or a criminal act is a criminal himself. Cops know who the 'bad' cops are and who the 'good' cops are. Cops can not be trusted to police themselves, thus they have an Internal Affairs department investigate them. Why should we trust them? These people put themselves above the public interest. We need a new breed of law enforcement officer, not a continuation of bullying thugs from those with sadistic perversions. Yep.”

“"For its purchase price, CCA obtained not only the prison but a 20-year management contract to house inmates for the state and an initial guaranteed 90 percent occupancy rate."
If this is the case, I see little reason to offer first time offenders in that state probation rather than sending them off to serve time. This is pretty much exactly the same scenario as the "kids for cash" scam that was run by Penn. judges in order to collect 'bounties' from the private prisons for every person they send to them as a convict. In the Penn. case, the victims were children sent to prison by judges to enrich themselves.”
