    But, if you want an increased heart rate and to ingest more carcinogens than a cigarette pot is probably the way to go

    Furthermore, pot always leads to intoxication, a high. A glass of wine or beer with dinner for an adult does not.

    True that beer is no good for those already w/ Asthma and COPD...or allergies...

    And interestingly polyphenols are also anti-tioxidants....http://news.menshealth.com/drop-the-...ne/2011/06/16/

    Yes, it was silly for this dude to smoke pot and go crazy on the highway...

    The fact marijuana is a schedule 1 drug is a joke
    The fact you cant grow industrial Hemp is an even bigger joke.

    carcinogens are all over the damn place. Be careful not to overcook your dinner
    Furthermore, pot always leads to intoxication, a high. A glass of wine or beer with dinner for an adult does not.
    Define intoxication? low levels of alcohol have some effect on an adult. In fact some smaller females will be over the legal driving limit in some states after a single beer. I can't say i know the exact level of intoxication in one "serving" of pot vs one serving of alcohol. I'm going to go out on a limb and say you don't either.

    antioxidant is a word used to sell fruit and skin cream. Did you no that so-called "antioxidants" often have an oxidizing effect?

    Yes, it was silly for this dude to smoke pot and go crazy on the highway...

    anecdotal evidence is better used in presidential debates targeting dumb voters.

    The second study doesn't even contain the word marijuana. The first study doesn't correlate violent crime with marijuana specifically. It's aggregated with all of the other drugs included in the study.

    And stop with the "gateway drug" fantasy.
    That is awesome. My 1st roommate was a soldier. I was 18, he was 22. hated him , then we grew on each other. Still friends today.

    my 2nd roommate and I smoked pot a LOT. would listen to RUSH, UK and Zeppelin til the sun came up.

    I still don't understand why kids don't go to college...pot, girls, boos...what's not to like.

    Your misinformation is staggering.

    The health problems associated with alcohol in this nations dwarf anything pot does.

    Whether pot is good for you or bad for you is irrelevant.

    The only salient question is: do you have the right to tell others what they may or may not ingest?

    I'll give you a hint.

    You don't.

    At the rate I've been going, I won't get glaucoma until 50 years after I'm dead.

    An ounce of prevention worth a pound of cure.

    Not only is most, if not all of this totally false, but I always get a chuckle when those who claim to be stewards of personal responsibility try to use it as the basis for their argument

    This.

    So very very very much this.

    If I ingest something then commit a crime, by all means, toss the book at me. Hard.

    Till then, my body, my choice (right? )

    Marijuana was a gateway drug for me as a young teenager. Eventually I graduated to coffee and Aspirin. Juan Valdez and Felix Hoffman should be serving mutiple life sentences.

    Glad I could round up all the dopers, it's usually pretty hard to get them to focus Of course they don't they don't want to hear anything bad about their escapism. Social deviates always want a Good Housekeeping seal of approval on their vices....

    Paranoid over-concern aside, (which I'm guessing could be from traces of PCP or cranking up the ISO-2)

    First, in JI no one can hear you laugh, although dope does give some the giggles

    Second, I'm not a steward of others personal responsibility nor do I claim to be. Find that post o' mine where I do.

    Third, I'm not telling anyone what to do. Just saying there are consequences that should not be dismissed. Not my problem if your
    testes decide to impersonate the California Raisins doing a death scream then atrophy. Again, find the post where I do tell folks what to do.

    Fifth, Which parts are false?

    Let me know how production and efficiency will go up after that 2 PM doobie break on the loading dock
