Why Marijuana should be Legalized

301 posts in this topic

The drug has been proven to cause anxiety disorders IF it is consumed very frequently in critical development stages of the brain (ie, before the age of about 20.) There after, it may still have an affect.

Smoking marijuana can definitely cause anxiety, and if it's not causing your anxiety, it can make your anxiety a whole lot worse. The problem is that it causes a spike in seratonin in your brain, which means that it floods your head and causes you to feel good. The problem is after--your brain's seratonin levels are depleted, and often your brain does not produce more which can cause serious anxiety. If you are worried about it, it's a good idea to give up weed for awhile to let your mood even out. Keep us posted!

Probably because you just learned about it. I don't blame you, but it is worth looking in to as someone who supports the drug you don't want to be ignorant.

I didn't say otherwise, and thats a crappy argument to support the drug.

Watching people who are so chronic it's done from the time they wake up till they go to bed, and do very little else says different to me. People wouldn't bother using it if it didn't have the effects it does, same as any other drug that is used for recreation. People often say it's not a drug but when you watch people who's lives get encompassed by it, it's hard to agree with that sentiment.

When compared to stuff like opium, heroin, crystal meth, cocaine, crack, oxycontin, hydrocodones, marijuana is a bush league recreational stimulant, not a drug.

You're forgetting who pays the health-care bills. A socialist health care system doesn't work when people are working to intentionally hurt the systems (injur themselves.)

Marijuana barely qualifies as a "drug" to begin with.

The illegality of marijuana is the best thing that ever happened to the stoner community. Do y'all seriously want to turn marijuana into a mirror image of the alcohol or tobacco industry? Are you all so high you can't think straight? Surely we, of all people, know and see the danger of government control? Surely we more than anyone understand the insidious nature of the combine? Do you not understand the meaning of the word, "legalize"? You keep using that word; it does not mean what you think it means.

I hate to go against someone as wise as Pete Tosh, but there it is: marijuana is a gift from the Most High, and Jesus says: "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God, what is God's." Marijuana is most assuredly NOT Caesar's. Under the present system, it is not Caesar's, it is all humankind's, and it is also one of the last great sources of money and power which is not under the control of the combine. Church and religion? Controlled by the combine. (What is the combine? you ask...read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest). Medical and health profession? Controlled by the combine. Only enthoegens remain outside government control - as it should be. That the combine pushes these things away and shuns them is a blessing! It is the difference between Soma and Moksha. There is a price to pay, some people get incarcerated, some access is limited, costs are high because of the risks one takes. It's a small price compared to the price of legalization.

Take some time and read the laws surrounding the alcohol industry, it is a veritable thicket, a dense undergrowth of law and regulation. Marijuana, there is really only one law: don't. Every individual who grows it, smokes it, ingests or possesses it is a recruit battling the combine; there could be no bigger defeat for freedom than legalization of marijuana. Think with your heads, people! Why on earth would we, who know so much better, support government takeover of this thing we love? Certainly, there are all kinds of policy reasons to do so from the perspective of the state, from the perspective of the non-user, it's a simple, easy argument to make and many are making it: I've seen the commercials coming out of Washington State. I've made the argument myself, for the sake of it, I could make the most convincing version of it y'all have ever seen, but it is wrong and I pray fervently that it never happens.

Alcohol does not kill ?

Pot is the least of the worlds worries , I would be much more concerned with the prescription pills doctors can prescribe containing cocaine and heroine and all the people on the roads who are drinking driving then people who are relaxed and happy and giggly after smoking a blunt
