    Right behind you.
    "In 2016, 35-year-old comic book artist and screenwriter Blake Leibel scalped his girlfriend, stripping her skull to the bone, drained her body of blood, then hid out in their West Hollywood condo with her desiccated corpse for more than a week. Only after the girlfriend’s mother tricked the police into knocking down the door did they discover the grisly scene.

    The girlfriend had complained to her mother that Blake smoked “huge” amounts of marijuana."

    John Wayne Gacy was a big REO Speedwagon fan, ergo, listening to REO Speedwagon causes one to become a serial killer.

    Christ, is this what passes for logic these days?

    I hope this isn't true but sadly it might be. I was recently forced to see REO at TwinRiver Casino and have been pretty angry at my wife since then. Not ready to kill but those songs are hard to shake from your head.

    I have 17 years of sobriety, I can count the number of times I took a puff on a joint over 40 years ago on less than 5 digits, I have seen what alcohol can do when abused, I have seen what tobacco can do yet Government condones those substances and relies on the tax revenue from it for its survival.

    If people like Coulter are worried about societal problems they can start with alcohol,tobacco and state run lotteries.

    That will never happen because the government is more concerned about tax revenue than the public good.

    I'm not going to pick up a joint, it is not my thing, but if an adult can use it responsibly, by all means spark one up.

    If they are doing it with plants they grew themselves depriving the government the tax revenue, even better.

    and if you enjoy a glass of your favorite adult beverage that is fine with me too. I'm not here to deprive you of your right to the pursuit of happiness.

    Oh one last thing, someone remind me to pick up cigars, something to smoke while mowing the lawn this weekend

    The problem with many conservatives is they tow the party line on what freedoms they would allow. They are as willing to regulate drugs, advocate religion as good and atheism as bad* and impose sexual morality as liberals are to regulate guns.''

    That would be 15 if digits mean fingers, and 9999 if you mean digits that pass the C/C++ "isdigit" test, or 65535 if we are talking hex digits. To paraphrase Bubba, "It all depends on what digit means".

    The idea of a government banning a plant that has been here for millions of years is INSANE. If you believe in God, then guess who created it?

    At least with booze, it's been tried: 1920-1933. Failed spectacularly (some would even say predictably), cuz Human Nature. Would fail just as spectacularly with tobacco and gambling as well, and for the same reason, much as it's failing now for pot etc.

    Prohibition, in that regard, falls in the same category of that other great Been-There-Done-That of humanity: socialism.

    Could be that. In the other thread, I noted that, in my case, autistic brain wiring + bad fever trip when young => I can never, ever touch hallucinogens. I have had exactly one experience with the herb under discussion. Shan't be repeated. [grin]

    I'm guessing there's a dearth of research into who should avoid what and why, cuz illegal.

    Yeah, but he created peyote and shroons too, as well as Kim Kardashian's ass. All things that god created that can be detrimental to the user.
    I don't smoke the shit. Years ago, back in the days when pot had seeds in it, and did not have cool names, I got a wicked panic attack from it. Total paranoia. I figure it's cuz pot has changed a lot since the 80's when they used to grow the stuff in the dirt, and maybe my metabolism changed or something. But I do think pot amplifies or enhances other substances. If you are drinking, and pretty buzzed, smoking weed will make you wasted.
    And maybe it effects some people differently than others. A long long time ago, I knew a chick that got wicked horny from pot.

    For me, it all comes down to people telling other people how they should live their lives. Politicians should stay out of it as long as people don't harm others.

    Yes. And if someones trippin too hard weed usually makes it worse. Alot of people report panic attacks happening after smoking really low quality bud. The stuff grown outside illegally often has all kinds of nasty pesticides.

    Imagine if they banned maple trees. Or elm trees. Silly. Ban dandelions. Ban crab grass.

    Although, I could get behind a ban on crab grass. Some plants are more equal than others.

    She has jumped the shark. Sort of like judge Napolitano. It’s like they both suffered massive cranial injury.

    Hey hey hey! A guy I worked with bank in the late 80's was a friend of the lead singer. Kevin Whateverhisnamewas. They met at a Chicago bus station years ago when he was getting out of the Navy and they just clicked. Every time Speedwagon was in town, he'd get a limo to pick him up, hang with the band and then go to the show. Never killed anyone! LOL
