http://www.hoboes.com/html/FireBlade/Editorials/Guests/Legalize.html...You support robberies and assaults on innocent people.
The high prices of drugs caused by prohibition force many drug addicts to turn to robbery in order to pay for their drugs. Legalization would drop drug prices. Drug users would no longer need to rob/assault innocent people in order to support their drug habit. This violence against innocent people would end if drugs were legalized.
They do control the amount of alcohol in certain states. I know that Oaktonarcher cannot purchase pure grain alcohol (190 proof) in his state, but I can here.
They wouldn't need to worry about limiting THC. You can't OD. It'd be like cigarettes. You have Camel Filters, Camel Lights, Camel Turkish Gold, Camel Turkish Silver, etc.
Oh, and btw I don't agree with 100% of that link, it does contain good info though.
Still. Is not the same as beer or cigarrets. Not everybody consumes alcohol to get wasted, MJ users DO consume it to get high. You can hang out with friends, have two beers and be ok, U can't smoke a couple of joints and be ok. You can't say it is the same or not as bad as alcohol. It might not be as harmful to your health, but the effects of it (in volume) are much stronger and faster.
That still doesnt make sense... they sell Alcohol in 190 proof.... have a couple of shots of that and try to walk straight
I know plenty of people who do or used to just hang out and smoke a joint. They'd be straight afterwards, or as straight as somebody who drank a couple beers.
The first times, yeah, people are gonna get a mindfuck. But the first time I smoked, I felt dizzy. The first time I drank, I got smashed. When people smoke pot for the first time, they're gonna get fucked up. Then they'll probably get used to it, know how much they should smoke, etc. Just like I know how much beer I can drink before I need to chill out if I don't wanna get drunk.
