You cannot be physically addicted to cannabis.
Physical or mental, addiction is still just as dangerous and deadly and marijuana is one of the most addictive drugs of all.http://www.justthinktwice.com/
Did You Know? Each year, more teens enter treatment with a primary diagnosis of marijuana dependence than for all other illicit drugs combined.
Because it stays in your body up to four weeks after ingestion. Because your body welcomes it. Doesn't mean they were high when the accident happened.
"Your body welcomes it?" What kind of hippy BS is that? That is about equivalent to the "It's natural, man!" arguments as if there aren't millions of natural poisons in the environment. As has been pointed out, marijuana use is extremely addictive and the reasons the users are such a menace on the road is their drug use. Stop making excuses for your dangerous behavior.
One person kills themselves, possibly because they realized how shitty their life was and wanted to die, so we should outlaw it? What about the 1/3 teens that kill themselves while drunk?
More two wrongs make a right? Regardless, alcohol should be illegal too. It is extremely dangerous and addictive. The Netherlands did not act based on one death, but on many such lives being snuffed out for no reason. You may think it's okay to sell products that kill children, but most people don't.
[Addiction is 95% mental, I'm sure you're addicted to a few things as well. Doctors rob people of their ability to control their use by convincing them it's a disease. That's too bad, you're missing a lot in life.
I am not addicted to any dangerous recreational drugs or anything else. Your addiction is making you lash out at the person trying to help you because it lies to you to try and make you think your behavior is okay. It isn't. It hurts yourself and the people around you and if you enter into the business of illegal paraphernalia sales it will very likely ruin your career as well when you are charged and convicted. In the name of protecting the children I am now starting to collect data on you to forward to the authorities. I will not sit idly by while you ruin lives in the name of profit.
No, it is ok, because it's their life, I'm not going to outlaw TVs and fast food because people destroy their selves with them.
Both entertainment and food have significant non-dangerous uses and are a an essential part of the functioning of our country. Your use of mind numbing, dangerous substances has no comparable alternate usage. It does nothing but harm.
Statistically, no, prohibition doesn't work. America, the great founder of the war on (some) drugs, has the highest drug use. While Portugal, a country that has decriminalized drugs, has seen over a 50% reduction since decriminalizing. Weird.
That America started a war does not mean that they are doing it right. With increased penalties and enforcement usage rates would plummet to the levels of Singapore. It is quite simply a lie that prohibition doesn't work. The policy is poorly implemented, but we have examples of how it can work.
The policy in Portugal is not legalization. No country is insane enough to support such a policy. Addicts are forced by the government into treatment and manufacturers and distributors are still harshly punished. Portugal is just another example of a policy of prohibition that can work. It is absurd that you cite it, but your mind is obviously too addled by drug use to see it.
You got that part right, you, I and everyone else is a drug user. Ever felt happy? Or sad? Or love? Or had a dream? Those are the drugs altering your conscience.
The natural process of the body is not a drug. It is a system that has evolved to drive us toward the pursuit of things vital for survival and the avoidance of things that are not. The danger of deadly drugs like Marijuana is that they short circuit this process and encourage the pursuit of deadly poisons.
And by the way, I'm not a habitual drug user, or drug addict as you would say.
It is clear that you are. Most deny it, exactly as you are. I feel very sad for you that you are living in this state of denial. You can be free of your depraved drug seeking life style if you seek treatment. Admitting that you have a problem is an important first step.
