There are vast numbers of legal substances that are as, or more, harmful than marijuana. It's stupid and short-sighted to single it out as a pariah and not reap the MANY benefits that would come from legalizing it, not the least of which would be vast tax income and better allocation of law enforcement resources.
Not to mention how many things we can use hemp for....
Oh I agree with you fully JR...but I wanted to be in before the daily smokers who don't do it to alleviate an illness. The ones who you run in to and are always half asleep with their top lip curled up, head cocked sideways with that doberman look.
Sorry, just a wee bit jaded by the many apprentices I've had to get rid of because they're always sporting huge bong-overs and can't do the job they're required to do. Then the others smoke it at lunch hour and say it doesn't affect them, right before calling me because they lost their keys to the shop and or forgot something and need me to drive to their site before the inspector shows up.
I've dealt with many pot heads and they all have the same bull. Sure there are some who can function (I am good friends with one), but for the most part, the article is very believable. All your points are correct, but not what I was getting at. Next time I'll elaborate.
