4/21 should be "Random Drug Test Day".
Sigh, it's far past the time that cannabis was removed from the list of illegal drugs.
Tylenol is more dangerous than pot.
OH, agreed... I used in my younger years and found alcohol to be far more dangerous. But, the fact remains that it is still illegal.
I don't use tylenol daily to get high. That's the difference. And it is only dangerous when taken incorrectly.
Pots a drug, period. Alcohol used to get high is also then being used as a drug. Stupid to do that as well. Some have a glass of wine as it pairs nicely with their red sauce and others might have a beer as it goes great wtih a hot dog. But, they don't get high.
While I have no problem with medical mj doled out like medication at the pharmacy only-------- I'd never support legalization across the board.
I hope that doesn't bother you OH, it's like many issues in this world, where different opinions are okay.
Had a conversation with my niece and nephew (one in college and one in highschool)---- both say for their out of contrl partying friends, mj was what they started with. Sad.
I have no problem with disagreement.
In fact the idea of everyone agreeing about everything sounds horrible to me.
Many herbs have different uses. Basil in large ( extremely large) quantities can cause severe stomach cramping. Thankfully it's legal or we wouldn't have pesto!
I have no problem with people using things to make them feel better. I don't care if you drink a glass of wine because of the taste or because you like the feel. It's not my business.( Driving impaired is another story.)
If you can grow a plant in your backyard that will relive your nausea, help you sleep, ease your muscle pain, and help you relax when you are stressed, why should any law say you can't grow and use it ?
It is a weed, easily grown and could be almost free for anyone.
I've got no problems with folks using mj as long as they are an adult, making an adult decision to use. That includes knowledge of its benefits, side affects, and all potential draw backs.
As with alcohol, I think some can use and use responsibly. Others seem to fall into the "abuser" category, but you'll have that with all drugs...
One thing I have found extremely entertaining is those folks who chronically use and say that there is absolutely no harm and boast of its medicinal purposes. I do believe in the medicinal value, but any time you inhale smoke into your lungs.... you are doing some damage, therefore taking away the "no harm" defense. Combine that with short term memory loss....
To each his own, and if your use does not interfere with my daily operations, smoke up.
