    And that doesn’t even take 10% off their annual deficit. And how are you going to tax something if I grow my own?

    if pot were legalized, i think it would be safe to assume that home growers would be about as common as people who grow their own vegetables. It’s not really all that common now; most people get it from at least one other person.

    tl;dr: hippies don’t have enough economic power to matter, ever.

    great so all in all its about dredging money from the lower forms of life in society
    has the economy dropped so badly that the government needs to tax scumbag stoners to help the state survive

    Your comments cause me genuine pain and suffering. If i ever meet you in real life i will try my best not to eviscerate you and shit on your ashes.

    #4 to #3 – KommissarKvC (02/12/2010) i agree,…its bad enough that so many americans are becoming so overweight,..just imagine what it would be like for americans as a people getting stoned, since use of marijuana makes you hungry but also affects you so you dont feel the satisfaction of what you eat, a stoner eats more than normal, thus stoned americans would make the current obesity figures pale by comparison Fuck all scientific research, this guy can make the most astute observations and put two and two together better than Slick Rick KommissarKvC (02/20/2010) pot smoker’s mental development is largely… Read more »

    well the only realistic way to resolve the ongoing issue about drugs is to welcome the ideal that asian nations use – when a drug dealer is caught, they are just taken somewhere and executed

    so in the end, when all dealers are dead, the users will either have to give up the habit, or start makingtheir own, be counted as dealersand be executed too

    Yeah, then there’s about 30439034 others that’ll take his place because the demand goes through the roof because suppliers are getting shot from either rivals or government. You run the same tired arguments conservatives tried five odd decades ago (hello war on drugs) Ban street amphetamine in the US and they move to importing from mexico, after mexico buckles from US pressure they move to asia, when southeast asia finally succumbs to UNODC; tougher regulations on amphetamines precursors is circumvented by EU states because those locos don’t give a fuck; five dollars a pill in england and that’ll be twice… Read more »

    There is no established link between smoking pot and lung cancer. Why do people keep ignoring this?

    TrikYodz

    maybe it was a jic for people who try to bring that excuse up, but all i know it does lower lung capacity. and i can see people abusing it to the point that somehow it would, but you and i both no it doesnt happen so that 119-ish dollars is just some breathingroom or leeway for unforseen expenses.

    well, I love weed and I believe that marijuana is an incredible plant, but I cannot believe that smoking marijuana can’t cause lung problems.

    KommissarKvC

    well depends on the type of weed, some of the stronger ones can make users cough pretty bad and that does damage the lungs a bit

    TrikYodz

    does coughing lead to cancer?

    This is an interesting find. Cannabis contains about 10 times the tar, and harmful carcinogenic/cancer inducing chemicals than cigarettes and cigars. I would not have expected that it does not increase the incidence of smoking related ailments.

    Yet another example of the anti weed propaganda over-hyping the alleged negative effects of weed…

    The Matrix: Rebooted

    That 10x number is bullshit. Worst case studies have shown that’s 50-70 percent higher than tobacco AT MOST.
    www.drugabuse.gov/infofacts/marijuana.html
    Those carcinogens are from burning hydrocarbons, so if you’re using a vaporizer or eating brownies its irrelevant.

    Phyreblade

    LOL… Very interesting… Depending on where you look, you will see numbers ranging from 4 times to 10 times, depending on how it is taken.

    Moar ridiculous propaganda I suppose…

    TrikYodz

    errowid.com, my friends.
    also, vapoos kick ass. they barely have any odor.

    Not legalizing marijuana also makes money, the private prisions stocks increase by the number of inmates one holds and more prisons are built, not that i agree with this… i’m just saing

    maybe one day someone will finally use the idea of sending convicts into space as expendable labor to help colonise other planets
    If something goes wrong and they die, well meh, they’re just convicts

    TrikYodz

    but isnt overcrowding in prison an issue? im just saing.

    Phyreblade

    I dunno. I think going to pot would be good for them.

    posted this in another thread, but is still relevant to the profiling that has been stated above.
