Enlighten me on how legalizing weed is a good thing. Seriously, give me ******** advice.

I don't see what it's going to do besides devolve this country into a bunch of hippies.







What do you have against hippies? Lol.

I'd honestly rather be a country of hippies than a country of sexist, racist, homophobic, ignorant, hypocrites.
This isn't something to be advised about, but I can give you facts.
Weed is a plant, grown from the earth.
Alcohol is a mixture of chemicals created by man.
How many people do you hear die from smoking/eating weed? I've never heard of any.
How many people die from alcohol consumption?
- One person is killed every 30 minutes – the cause driving under influence.
- Each year more than 15 000 thousand people are killed in alcohol related accidents and crashes
- Alcohol is responsible and the main cause for more than half of the worst traffic accidents with fatalities.
- Every other minute a person is seriously injured in an alcohol related crash
- Over 25% of all US people will be involved in car accident during their life
- The probability of alcohol related car accident is 5 time more likely to occur at night
- More than 65% hard-core criminals start their criminal record with driving under influence
- Over 40% of bike accidents are fatal
- You are more likely to fall asleep while driving because of the increased amount of alcohol in your blood.

I personally don't smoke, anything ever. I don't drink either, but I haven't seen a reason to ban it. If you're gonna ban weed, you might as well ban basil and sage while you're at it.

They are taxing it and using that money for funds towards education. I think that's fantastic, so I honestly don't care.
Smoke it. Don't smoke it. Lives are still gonna go on.
I rest my case.


Good God. @.@ That's better than what I would have done. I was just going to say alcohol is the major cause of most vehicular accidents. And that you rarely hear people drink in moderation, too, so it's not just weed.

Oh and another thing about legalizing weed: one less product for drug dealers to use and one more thing to tax. Besides, people are going to smoke weed regardless, and have been doing it for decades, anyway. (Now this doesn't mean they'll legalize other drugs like coke and heroine because those kill people a hell of a lot more than weed ever has or will.) They won't stop... just like people that drink alcohol won't stop drinking it even if it's made illegal. And guess what's going to help them continue drinking if it ever was to be made illegal? Moonshiners.

And don't even get us started on the damages tobacco has caused over the centuries to people's health.

Edit: Alcohol is good for the body in small doses because it cleans out the liver, which is exactly why over drinking can cause liver cancer. That's the only good health effect of alcohol. Now weed has only one good health effect I'm away of too and that's the treatment of cancers and glaucoma, I believe. Or is that just another type of cancer? *shrug*

Thank you, thank you. I have to go above and beyond to explain myself sometimes. If I give a short answer, they'd try to start an entire argument over it because our views differ.

I'm gonna have to find another way to get my small doses of alcohol lol.
