You know what we have gotten off of the subject here.
Do we think that this is good or bad? The law. You guys talk like such a law would result in an orgy of drug usage. If so then we should stipulate as to who this is a bad thing. Of coarse you probally know that I think that it is a good thing. I will defend my case as good as I can when I am called apon.
I think all LAWS against pot suck.
But I understand what Wilso is saying -- and certainly there are LOTS of people like him for whom one is too many -- and many are not enough.
So it seems to me that best way to deal with the problem is to take it out of the realm of criminal law --and place it where it belongs -- with the medical profession.
We should be treating people for having propensities to addictive behavior -- rather than trying to put them in jail for doing something comparable to what people do legally with food, coffee, booze, cigarettes, and the like.
By the way -- so that there is no question about this: "Use" -- even heavy, regular use -- does not eqate to addiction. I know people who smoke two or three times a week normally, who can give the stuff up (and have) for months and months at a time -- JUST AS A TEST.
Addiction has to do with compulsive use -- use that cannot be controlled.
So I disagree with the few comments that have been sent in your direction that gratuitously designate you as an addict.
