, I still speak up for it. And I am not, nor have I ever been a "punk". By the way, I ain't stoopid, neither... :mrgreen:

Same here Ax,

 

I have 3 healthy smart children, own a house, 2 vehicles, ATV, etc.......... I earn 50K+ a year, Thats doesn't include my spouses income, thats just mine.

Smoking pot does not mean stupid, does not mean punk.

 

Look at my pic, Do I look stupid? Do I look like a punk?

Pale, I think you would be surprised at how many people you are around who are in great mood because they are stoned and you just dont know it.

Yup.......there are judges, cops, teachers, etc. that all smoke it. All "respectable" people............

 

I used to be shocked at just who and what types of people smoke it cause I always thought it was just young punks etc. that smoked it, but boy was I wrong.....Now nothing suprises me.

I'll agree with that....Respectable is in Social standing???.....I'm taking it, by your meaning...

 

To me....They are merely another group of individuals that cry....*Life is soo hard!!!.....Where's my fixings...Stash*..LOL!!

 

It's a willpower situation....Many have it.....Many Don't....

 

Oh Well!!....LOL!! ;) Pale

You look high...Just kidding :P

 

Looks are rather decieving, as I recall from an earlier discussion on wearing nice clothes and looking presentable or not.

I am suprised governments never jumped on it a long time ago.

My history s a bit shaky ,but the UK have already had a pop at that with the opium trade wars with China ,when we had an empire.......

 

Things got shoved under the carpet.......

Country's full of veggies anyway , how due you think that Blair got re elected ?

I don't think it would solve our financial problems...the funds would still go to the drug lords and cartels.

if it was decriminalized, then it would be grown domestically. imagine the boost to the agriculture industry. ;)

FINAL

Testimony* of

LARRY D. THOMPSON

Deputy Attorney General

Before the United States

Sentencing CommissionMarch 19, 2002

 

 

Unfortunately, drug abuse continues to plague this country at unacceptably high levels. According to estimates generated by the National Household Survey on Drug Abuse, 2.8 million Americans are dependent on illegal drugs, and an additional 1.5 million are non-dependent abusers. In 2000, Americans spent $62.9 billion dollars on drugs. Of that, $36.1 billion was spent on cocaine alone....

my buddy's hydroponics say you're wrong. ;)

 

seriously, though, almost zero marijuana comes from south america. it's usually from mexico or canada, the best from the latter. ;)

We appreciate the chance to share our views with the Commission. We think the Commission should be guided by the words of President Bush: "We must reduce drug use for one great moral reason: Over time, drugs rob men, women, and children of their dignity and of their character. Illegal drugs are the enemies of ambition and hope. When we fight against drugs, we fight for the souls of our fellow Americans."

Replace "drugs" with "alcohol" ...what is the difference

I personally don't see mariwana(SP) any more of a drug that booze or cigaretts. I do not put it in the same class as LSD or cocain or crack.
