You keep using the same argument. Like I said earlier, you cant classify marijuana with drugs. If I used the same techniques as you, I would say that well if you ever took penicillin or any types of anti-boitics, then you are making stupid decisions because technically they are classified as drugs. "Drugs" is a loaded-word, its always going to have negative connotations with it. You keep mentioning that I defend drugs, when if you read my argument I specifically mention marijuana. MJ is not cocaine, crack, or even alcohol. You obviously do not understand how to properly debate versus another on a specific topic because you keep using ad hominems trying to attack my character. Basically your trying to discredit me and call me a druggie and brag about how righteous you are, but I have yet to see you present a substantial and clear rebuttal. This is how you are supposed to present a rebuttal:
Here you assume there is a contradiction because anything illegal must be harmful and vice versa. You are incorrect.
Actually what I'm trying to say is that it is very contradictory to argue against drugs and want it to be legal. If thats the case then why are you arguing.
I am not sure what you think the next indulgence is....
Well let me make a few examples of indulgences in life that have been shown to be just as or even more harmful: Alcohol, tobacco, red-meat, sugar,
The basis of my life choices is that I have done the right thing...you have the same attitude, that is why you defend drugs. I think it is telling that you dont argue abstinence is stupid, but are forced to defend taking drugs. I dont think of people as stupid, I think of them as doing stupid things.
Ummm... Last time I recalled, I don't remember me asking you about your life's goal or morals. You say you are doing the right thing, but thats your opinion right. Of course anyone who talks about themselves is always going to have a bias, so yea... to you, you are doing the right thing. I'm not judging you or saying that you are unjust to freedom of choice, but you try to defend yourself for no reason because obviously you feel guilty of something...
Do you mean the sort of person who takes drugs and says they are not harmful ? I say they are harmful and dont take them...how is that hypocritical ?
Yet again another ad hominem and a bad one I might have to say. Obviously you were trying to imply that towards me. Like I said you shouldn't use the word drugs, its loaded... I am not talking about drugs, just MJ. You like to cluster MJ with the word drugs. Anyways what I mean about not being a hypocrite is that yes, I have already agreed to the fact that MJ is harmful. I stated it so clearly in my first post, but harmful is a very malleable word. What would you considered harmful because like I said, there are many legal things that are more or just as harmful as pot, yet you don't argue against those things. Ergo, don't be a hypocrite if you indulge in fast-food or alcohol, and look down on people that smoke weed. The fact of the matter is, its not the harmfulness that tells you its bad, its the fact that you have been so conditioned to see it as bad in society that it makes you believe it truly is harmful. Dont get me wrong, I used to be against marijuana... but then I did my research and utilized cognitive thinking to decide on my own view of this subject. Instead of just following along to what I've been taught in society.
