        Like they said, it makes pot legalization advocates look like a cause for some intelligent people too. Don’t drag us down with you, IDIOT.

            Jimmy Stanley: Hey, folks-Debating, amongst ourselves, the minutiae of the verbiage used is as counterproductive to this movement as the Cannabis laws themselves…Cooperation, not critique, is needed to repeal the most inhumane “laws” since slavery.
            Nobody thinks of this issue as a Civil Rights issue. It really is; especially since our Civil Rights are violated 800 Thousand times each year.
            Legalization of Cannabis has, about, as much to do with Cannabis as the Emancipation Proclamation had to do with Interstate commerce…Nothing.

              Paul Tammaro: “Legalization of Cannabis has, about, as much to do with Cannabis as the Emancipation Proclamation had to do with Interstate commerce…Nothing.” … Au Contraire!!! … For openers: “Legalization” is to bring a thing within LEGAL control under license & privilege; de-criminalization is to REMOVE criminal connotations from an act of rightful consequence and is the condition you’re seeking!!! … As for “the Emancipation Proclamation had to do with Interstate commerce.” concept: IT HAD VERY MUCH to do with interstate commerce! … “Emancipation” is simply the transfer of chattel property from one owner to another (in the case of Lincoln’s proclamation, that was the chattel-slave[s], together with people of any color in the South as “Prize of War”, to Federal Government ownership for which the defacto 13th & pseudo-14th Amendment[s] were created) thus establishing the D.C. Plantation. FDR EXTENDED that chattel –nature to the entire nation, via the Federal Insurance Contribution Act (FICA) a/k/a the Social Security Administration; wherein we are ALL deemed to be slaves as you read this. … Just lite another joint now, and this’ll all go away till the Obama-FEMA Club arrives and introduces you to the New World Order concept of things.

            Jimmy Stanley: Dude, YOU’RE a douche. Don’t try and blame others for noting your illiteracy, when it’s in a context with a reason. He said why he did it, and it’s a perfectly valid reason having nothing to do with Godwin.

        Jamesroygeorge: 1) Thank you for the new word.
        2) paraphrasing Salman Rushdie in “the History of English” “English is no longer an English language, but groups of English speakers throughout the world have made it their own” and “There were over 100 dialects of English within a 20 mile radius of London, and no two Englishmen could converse without offending each other as to the use of their language”. And thus it remains

I’m glad we can figure each other out… and OMG – ROTFLMAO at all the grammar/spelling/whatever wars going on in this post – legal or not, I be tinkin some folks could do wit a little of de ganja man🙂

        Jamesroygeorge: “English” is spelled with a capital “E” and sentences start with a capital. As far as I know, no sentence ends with two full stops. Just sayin’.

      Grammarnazi: I’m a copyeditor and even I have heard of typing and grammatical errors when one is fatigued. Grammatical errors are not the property of ‘stoners’ and correct grammar won’t cut any ice with ‘Ivy-educated politicians’ many of whom are populists who slept through school are pig ignorant and just know how to make deals and profiteer. Anyway grass has always been stigmatized because it’s been the choice of groups who for one reason or another have been marginalized and discriminated against. Nowadays the elite smoke it too but have to disclaim they ‘inhale’ in order not to be stigmatized also. If they don’t smoke chances are their kids do and the most of the rhetoric is pure hypocrisy and scare-mongering by people who buy into what these lobbyists churn out.

      I was interested by the comment that DuPont was the first to lobby against MJ: more details please.
      If anybody was a Nazi Nancy DuPont was. Represented abroad by Alan Dulles et frere, she, Ford, Disney, GM, IBM and a slew of right-wing profiteers financed the militarization of Germany and Hitler’s entire war effort by financing and investing overseas in everything from tanks and munitions to cocoa beans and uranium. It was business as usual for them and the banks though they were undercutting the US military and costing lives. Their heirs still clog up Congress, the Supreme Court, state legislatures and guess what political party. They still own America and persecute the electorate – I could go on but I’ll end by saying some of these Ivy League alumni have even been known to steal a Presidential election or two and make mistakes in grammar as well as the art of war.

      Do you really think these ruthless. moronic predators give a toss about how articulate and well-educated their opponents may be? Wake up and smell the weed.

      Grammarnazi: LOL You effectively turned the discussion from marijuana legalization to grammar, and turned everyone against each other. Everyone that got wrapped up in the grammar debate, you’re pretty good examples of why nothing is accomplished in the fight to get marijuana legalized. Look how easily confused and distracted you all are haha. Also you suddenly became “spelling nazi” further down the page hahaha. Awesome troll.

      Grammarnazi: i disagree with your assessment.
      After all, a great many opponents to marijuana legalization use terms such as:
      “You don’t never know what your talking about”
      and
      “I are against pot smoking because it kills you. It killed a friend of mine who overdosed.”
      (that’s one side of the coin)
      The other is that, as well as make a living from those who want to legalize marijuana, NORML put several lawyers up to the task of confronting the Supreme Court for Medicinal use (too bad, because at the time, there were about 95 million adult recreational smokers. Today there are between 125 million to 150 million adult recreational smokers) and they produced a gem of lawyerese to astound all who heard it in logic, ease of understanding, and simplicity of truth…and were denied hands down.
      For the longest time, I felt that people that called me sophomoric, were actually complimenting me. But that’s because I dropped out of college after my Freshman year.

      Gunt21: Hmm,let’s “fact-check” that little blurb…Marijuana, criminalized in 1937, under a Democratic House…Democratic Senate…and a Democrat president. One of the few instances in our history where no roll vote was taken, i.e. it was a secret vote and no one knows for sure how any one particular Congressman voted. This result, facilitated by a racist propaganda war against Asians and Latinos, was bankrolled by major Democrat contributors, such as the Rockefeller, Dupont, and Westinghouse families, who each saw hemp as a threat to their individual empires. They drafted another Democrat, media magnate William Randolph Hearst, to serve as the propaganda wing of the endeavor.

      In conclusion: One should always be sure of one’s facts, or one is liable to end up looking like a partisan shill.

        RepublicOfTexasTV: You must be SO proud of your current batch of Republican congressmen who refuse to end federal marijuana prohibition. HR 2306, a bill to end federal marijuana prohibition currently has 20 co-sponsors, only two Republicans, Ron Paul and Dana Rhobacher had the courage to join this effort.

        Looks like the Democrats are much more interested in moving this country forward. Why are Republicans so in love with marijuana prohibition?

          Underdog6: You’re missing the whole point. He’s not saying Republicans are good. This whole ‘Democrat/ Republican’ thing needs to go out the window anyway, no one should vote a certain because it’s what their party does. You should vote based on your conscious and your values.
          All these guys in Washington are on the same side(-a few), they’re all ruled by corporations. We need to go back to a free market and end this corporatism.

            Aka Arlene: Far too many folks have been robbed of their freedom and their futures by marijuana convictions.Personally, the conviction I got for growing four shitty little plants in my parent’s backyard thirty-three years ago did more damage to my life than all the weed I smoked before the arrest and since.

            Aka Arlene: For every person you say was robbed of their future by cannabis, I will show you 10 who went on to be doctors and lawyers and such. Your emotions are all over your words, you should investigate the facts instead of perpetuating lies.

              Pat Pardis: We are not robbed of our future by the use of cannabis, but by the social stigma and legal problems it implies. Great minds, such as Carl Sagan, espouse the use of cannabis. I know of many other extremely successful people, myself included (and I’m a graduate student, which doesn’t make me successful but at least smart, or that’s what the system says) use cannabis often. Once again, it is no cannabis as much as it is the social and legal stigma it carries. I’ve seen many more people ruin their lives with alcohol and it is seen as sad, but not troublesome.
