If we're going to make Pot illegal,why not ban alcohol as well?
Alcohol is a very dangerous thing.  People who aren't even born,can also be permenately harmed by it.

How may auto accidents are enough? How many additional  FAS children do we need?

We need to ban assault alcohol the most.
Who really needs a drink that's 190 proof?

I understand if you like the taste of wine,but there's no point in something that's 190 proof as it would have no taste.

The powers that be rarely listen to logic or facts on drug legalisation.

Alcohol is far more dangerous, but people crash cars whilst high too.

Alcohol and drugs are banned in prison. People still seem to get both in there. Any hope of preventing their use through the use of government force is a futile effort. The best method is educating people.

I think people talk to their teens in the completely wrong way about drugs and alcohol. You can't just tell them not to do them or that you don't want them to do them, etc. As teenagers, they are trying to find their level of independence and trying to grow that independence. Telling them that they can't do drugs will just create a rebellious feeling about the issue. When I talked to my kids about this subject, I told them that they are free people and are free to make their own decisions. However, they need to figure out for themselves if this is something they need in their lives. Tell them that you are hopeful that they will decide on their own that they don't need them.

I always laugh at those who think they can legislate a sense of morality. Prohibition was already attempted once and all that gave us was the Chicago mobsters and gangsters who brought it in from Canada, much as the current gangs bring drugs in from Mexico and other points south. People have the right to make bad decisions. If a man drives drunk and kills someone, you charge him with the crime of murder. It's as simple as that.

Making a substance illegal only creates a black market for it, which allows a gap for violent cartels to thrive in.

What we really should be doing is educating people that alcohol is ethanol - what we use to fuel cars.  It's near equivalent of huffing gasoline, imo.

We should end the misinfo propaganda on cannabis and inform the public that no one has ever died from cannabis and it cures many diseases, including cancer.

But wait - the government doesn't want us to be healthy, big pharma profits way too much off our suffering and demise, hence big tobacco.  And oh yeah, they don't want us to think with open minds, they'd rather have us numb or brains with pharmaceuticals and alcohol.  Cannabis (and psychedelics) would threat their very existence.

I agree on the education part, but saying it cures cancer is also misinformation. I've not seen any conclusive evidence that it does this.

One study in mice and rats suggested that cannabinoids may have a protective effect against the development of certain types of tumors.[3] During this 2-year study, groups of mice and rats were given various doses of THC by gavage. A dose-related decrease in the incidence of hepatic adenoma tumors and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) was observed in the mice. Decreased incidences of benign tumors (polyps and adenomas) in other organs (mammary gland, uterus, pituitary, testis, and pancreas) were also noted in the rats. In another study, delta-9-THC, delta-8-THC, and cannabinol were found to inhibit the growth of Lewis lung adenocarcinoma cells in vitro and in vivo .[4] In addition, other tumors have been shown to be sensitive to cannabinoid-induced growth inhibition.[5-8]

Key word may. As much as I'd like it to be true, that's still not conclusive.

The fact that it has worked on people and saved their lives says wonders.  Also take note of the statement "These compounds have been shown to induce apoptosis in glioma cells in culture and induce regression of glioma tumors in mice and rats."  Apoptosis is cell death.

In fact, my beta fish, Hendrix, had swim bladder disease (he would sink to the bottom or float to the top) and so I sprinkled some kief (trichomes from cannabis) into his tank and he swam up to them and ate them, and not even an hour later, he was swimming back as his healthy self.  This worked on two occasions.

Haha, not exactly scientific, but maybe you should study this further. And it could just be a coincidence. My Dad's stupid wife "performed" reiki on one of his diseased turtles and it quickly got better and she took this as proof of the power of reiki haha.

Yeah, I have had the opportunity to read those studies.  As someone who has worked with cells in tissue culture, I can tell you that it really isn't that hard to trigger an apoptotic event.  Further, these studies use carefully controlled doses of cannabinoids derived from synthetic processes.  Delivering the chemical to a solid tumor in vivo is an entirely different story.  Try to control the dosage with the grass you get from your dealer.  Imagine a doctor prescribing something like 2 bong rips every 4 hours.  Further, you have individuals smoking it, which inhalation of any byproducts from burning have been shown to increase the risk of lung cancers.  I have also seen studies showing similar neural patterns between schizophrenics and heavy marijuana users.  

That being said, I do not think it is any worse than alcohol, and I support legalization.  Hell, I have even been known to partake on occasion.  I just think advocates for legalization do themselves a massive disservice by claiming it to be some magic cure all.  While it definitely deserves study for potential medical uses, to claim it is something like taxol is pretty laughable.  The argument to bring it out of the black market holds much more sway with me.

I agree. I think when people claim it as some sort of magic medicine for all ailments it has a negative impact. I'd love it if it was true, but I don't see any conclusive evidence for some of the more grandiose claims. I hope at some point I'll be proved wrong though.

If we're going to make Pot illegal,why not ban alcohol as well?
Alcohol is a very dangerous thing.  ....
Because the know-it-alls who make your laws and tell you what to do and not do have social gatherings at which they consume alcohol, not pot.

They want to control you, not themselves.

Certain liberal types want to ban cigarettes while legalizing marijuana as well. I have to admit that is inconsistent. I support the rights of smokers to smoke in private. I feel sorry for their kids, and I hated when I was a kid going to weddings where everyone was smoking like they are going to die tomorrow, having to inhale that crap. Still gotta have some consistency.. you can't legalize marijuana and ban cigarettes.. that's stupid and illogical.  I would not let people smoke pot in public places if they can't also smoke cigarettes. Both should be banned in bars and restaurants.. people can do that stuff at home or at concerts, whatever.

If however someone wants to bring "pot brownies" into a bar or place like that... more power to them. It's the smoke that is the distinguishing factor here and affecting other's enjoyment by doing it. I look forward to the day it's banned in indian casinos.

Same. It felt weird when they banned smoking over here in pubs and clubs because I was so used to coming home smelling of stale smoke and having it sting my eyes after being couped up in a smoky pub/club for hours.

Certain liberal types want to ban cigarettes while legalizing marijuana as well. I have to admit that is inconsistent. I support the rights of smokers to smoke in private. I feel sorry for their kids, and I hated when I was a kid going to weddings where everyone was smoking like they are going to die tomorrow, having to inhale that crap. Still gotta have some consistency.. you can't legalize marijuana and ban cigarettes.. that's stupid and illogical.  I would not let people smoke pot in public places if they can't also smoke cigarettes. Both should be banned in bars and restaurants.. people can do that stuff at home or at concerts, whatever.

If however someone wants to bring "pot brownies" into a bar or place like that... more power to them. It's the smoke that is the distinguishing factor here and affecting other's enjoyment by doing it. I look forward to the day it's banned in indian casinos.

I can see legalizing weed but having restrictions on smoking it around others in confined spaces (including the smoker's own kids, in his own house).

That's kind of like "Let me force YOU to get high", right?

...
We need to ban assault alcohol the most.
Who really needs a drink that's 190 proof?

I understand if you like the taste of wine,but there's no point in something that's 190 proof as it would have no taste.

That would be an acquired taste.

And what we need to ban are the assault-rule-makers.

The fact that it has worked on people and saved their lives says wonders.  Also take note of the statement "These compounds have been shown to induce apoptosis in glioma cells in culture and induce regression of glioma tumors in mice and rats."  Apoptosis is cell death.

Yeah, I have had the opportunity to read those studies.  As someone who has worked with cells in tissue culture, I can tell you that it really isn't that hard to trigger an apoptotic event.  Further, these studies use carefully controlled doses of cannabinoids derived from synthetic processes.  Delivering the chemical to a solid tumor in vivo is an entirely different story.  Try to control the dosage with the grass you get from your dealer.  Imagine a doctor prescribing something like 2 bong rips every 4 hours.  Further, you have individuals smoking it, which inhalation of any byproducts from burning have been shown to increase the risk of lung cancers.  I have also seen studies showing similar neural patterns between schizophrenics and heavy marijuana users.  

That being said, I do not think it is any worse than alcohol, and I support legalization.  Hell, I have even been known to partake on occasion.  I just think advocates for legalization do themselves a massive disservice by claiming it to be some magic cure all.  While it definitely deserves study for potential medical uses, to claim it is something like taxol is pretty laughable.  The argument to bring it out of the black market holds much more sway with me.    

If you watch people's testimonials, you'll see that it works beyond limited test settings.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0psJhQHk_GI

Will it work 100% of the time?  No.  Though you should keep in mind chemo kills more people than it heals.

If I had cancer I would rather ingest concentrated THC or CBD oil than suffer on chemo any day.

I watched a video on youtube about a squirrel that came back to a house in order to eat some rotten apples. The squirrel had been around the night before and got drunk on the alcohol being produced by the fermenting fruit. This night the home owner had a video camera, the squirrel saw him and attempted to run away, but being intoxicated just fell on its back every time it tried to climb the tree to safety.

Self intoxication is a phenomenon that is spread throughout the animal kingdom and there are countless examples of it. It occurred to me that if the man was a hungry predator the squirrel would be dead as its abilities of self preservation had been diminished. So why then has evolution not breed out the desire to engage in self intoxication?

I postulate that there must be some advantage in engaging in self intoxication that out weighs the dangers caused by the diminished abilities of self preservation. Some possible mechanisms are;

1) Life is hard, not just for humans. It's possible that these episodes of abandon help to maintain motivation.

2) Barriers to reproduction my be broken down by intoxication. This would seem especially true in the human species.

3) Altered perception may help you see things differently and enable you to see solutions to problems. A large number of creative people claim to get inspiration from intoxicants.

So if self intoxication is both natural and beneficial (from an evolutionary perspective) then why do humans see it as a big problem?

I have a theory about this, if anyone is interested?
