its against the law, doesnt matter if you think it should or shouldnt be, its illegal. if you do something that is illegal and you know the punishment is going to prison, then you're a fucking moron and have no arguement if you get caught
I don't want weed legalized. Contrary to popular opinion on here the overwhelming bulk of statistical, anecdotal, cultural and scientific evidence, it is a gateway drug.
I believe our great country has more folks, per capita, behind bars than any other country in the world.
As you stated, this is a great country. And the freest country in the world.I'm not making a direct correlation between the freest country in the world and more folks behind bars, but i'm assuming it doesn't hurt.It's definitely something I'm not bitching about anytime soon.
I don't want weed legalized. Contrary to popular opinion on here, it is a gateway drug. Seen it too many times. You can downplay it all you want, but the bottom line is it's illegal. Why risk your future doing an illegal drug? Simple, the world is full of dumbasses. I could smoke weed, but I choose not to. I do not want to jeopardize my job nor my freedom.
You can find thousands of testimonies that state this, and that's the primary reason it's still illegal, despite what pot-smokers want to publicize.

Keep it honest.
And yet, there is literally no evidence of it. There are few things that have been proven incorrect as often as the "gateway" theory. It's horseshit, and that's been roundly proven.
I don't know what statistics say b/c I don't really care to look this stuff up, but I know what addicts say. Every single addict of a harder drug (not prescription, that's an issue in and of itself) I've talked to in person started with pot. Probably b/c pot is easy to find. And I've talked to a lot of addicts.But some study you can find on the internet or in a book might be right. It's just not MORE right than actual human interaction.
To me, the argument that "well, alcohol is legal, so pot should be" just doesn't hold any water.
Also, it doesn't matter if every drug user in the world says they started on pot. The large and overwhelming number of people who use Cannabis, don't use other illegal drugs. That is, in itself, proof that you're wrong.
Can't argue with a statement like that. It's fine with me. I'm not going to argue this point. Arguing with a pot smoker over the legality/illegality of pot/gateway to other drugs subject is like arguing with Alabama on how many national championships they have.Either one is pointless, but I'd much rather argue the second. And I'll gladly be called stupid for stating this. I've been called stupid for a lot less.
Started with pot? You mean before they ever tried alcohol or tobacco? Hmmm, I wonder if those 2 are gateway drugs?
It's 1000% more right than actual human interaction. You haven't talked to 1% of 1% of the addicts out there, and you haven't weighted your interactions to make sure and account for other factors. You don't have enough of a sample size to make any kind of statement, and you have done literally absolutely ZERO to show that marijuana use had any effect on later drug use.Also, it doesn't matter if every drug user in the world says they started on pot. The large and overwhelming number of people who use Cannabis, don't use other illegal drugs. That is, in itself, proof that you're wrong.Also, how many of those same drug users who "started" with pot never drank alcohol, smoked cigarettes, listened to rock or rap, or went swimming? Approximately zero, I'm sure. Are all of these things "gateways" to hard drug use?
Not throwing a dog in this fight (trying to sit on the sidelines and use it as a learning opportunity): You are dismissing his arguments for lack of empirical evidence or statistical facts. Valid point.But then you are making your argument/case without giving any empirical evidence or facts yourself but rather broad, generalized statements or opinions (e.g. "The large and overwhelming number of people who use Cannabis, don't use other illegal drugs."I personally am trying to objectively sift through all of this, but its hard when "cases" are being made with no real facts given.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Disclaimer: I don't smoke pot or other illegal drugs (never have) but don't judge or care about others who do - none of my business. However, I did get a blow job in HS and I can definitively say that was a gateway to wanting another and wanting more sex, so there's that.
I'm at work, or I would be happy to link the numbers all day. Ask my friend Google, he's pretty handy.
Don't some states still have laws on the books saying it's illegal to sex up your wife with anal/oral. Would people who choose to participate in these prohibited activities also qualify as "fricking morons?"
