Something this good would be in so it will be easel What should

In the early 20th century, hemp farmers were making a lot of money. So much so that in fact it scared the giant cigarette companies of Virginia and Maryland. After appealing to their congressmen, the FDA banned marijuana's production, sale, and consumption. Or we could make an internet comic designed to confuse people. Either or is ok.

One argument for stoners is that weed isn't as bad as alcohol

Alcohol was banned once in america, but after years of protest and men taking to the streets to bring it back again, it was finally revoked and alcohol was brought back. Reason being is that the men that went to protest were honest and trustworthy men who got off their ass and fought for their right to get wasted.

Weed isn't going to get legalized anytime soon because no one takes stoner's seriously. Most stoners are teenagers who couldn't change **** if they tried and the government isn't going to change **** for them. Stoners are too lazy to get off their damn ass and make change anyway so maybe it is for the better. The only way things are going to change are if stoners quit getting high for a moment and actually protest this **** .

I actually find it ironic that Weed prevents them to effectively protest their thoughts.

the ban on alcohol wasnt lifted because of everyone protesting. the ban was lifted because banning alcohol led to the birth of organized crime, and the crime rate in the u.s. skyrocketed. they got rid of the ban to get rid of the crime rate.

I find it ironic how you're taking the "high ground" here when a lot of your earlier arguments are based on subjective experiences and personal beliefs. ("being the weed schizophrenia posterboy" & "weed doesn't do anything but waste money")

I'm not saying that some (well, a lot) of the supporters of legalization aren't typical "stoner retards", though. However, there are also a lot of very organized people with intelligent thoughts and logical arguments for legalization of cannabis (NORML, anyone?) who don't want to be branded as criminals simply because they inhale the smoke of a plant. You lumping all supporters of cannabis as "dumb stoners" doesn't do you much credit, as that is obviously not the case.

TL;DR: Nice generalizations you got there, bub.

I don't browse "abovetheinfluence", if that's what you're asking. And concidering that I do indulge in cannabis use, I am quite aware of how it works along with it's side-effects (that is not to imply that I haven't read articles about it's potential "hazards" as well, which I have). Compared to most other intoxicants, those side-effects are mild, and close-to-none of them are permanent.

Also, not every pot smoker is a hippie and not everyone likes to make their "drug use" publicly known. I dare say that you seem to be making your judgements while looking only at the tip of the iceberg.

no your an idiot. until the 1937 (when it was illegal) hemp was used in everything from fuel (which is proven to be better for the environment and would be cheaper then using fuel from other countries) to the shell of the original ford cars. even the declaration of independence is written on hemp. its also a cheaper to make paper from hemp then trees. well William Randolph Hearst (head of the paper industry) didn't like the competition and really didn't like losing so he ran a smear campaign with made up stats such as and this is from a real headline "marihuana" is responsible for murderous rampages by blacks and mexicans. so in 1937 without a good counter argument it was made illegal.
tl;dr? pot is illegal because a guy wanted to keep his money,
User avatar #114 to #107 - fluffymcnutter (03/19/2012) [-]
That may be but currently legalization isn't in sight mainly due to big pharmaceutical companies being threatened by weed's perfect anti-depressant and pain killing ability. There's WAAAAAAAY too much money invested in them and legalization would threaten their stocks. They couldn't afford there being a miracle drug that's both an anti-depressant and a pain killer. It's the exact same thing as you're talking about except unfortunately everything else is childs play compared to big pharma, except maybe big oil companies but that's not relevant to this

False! Marijuana is illegal because tobacco companies felt threatened and bribed the Government to ban it in order to make more money in addition to the **** loads they were already making. Before it was banned, marijuana was a key industrial crop used for the same reasons people use to justify legalization today; ropes, paper, clothes, etc.

It would likely bring a ton of money into the gov if they were to sell it.

I only have ONE problem with completely legalizing it.

Since it would probably be as easy to obtain are cigarettes, just more expensive, kids would probably somehow get ahold of it, people would smoke it on their breaks or whenever bored on their jobs and we'd get a bunch more of numbnut useless people eventually living on welfare buying weed constantly because now they don't need a reason to smoke it.
And again, kids would get ahold of it, go to school high, weed culture develops, and the last thing America needs right now is kids that are dumber than they already are.

/rant over, inb4 red thumbs because of the opinion police.

You make a good point. Then again, I recall years ago, there were multiple kids who went to my school, who were, &quot;stoners.&quot; And those same kids, now have no money, and don't have jobs. I'm serious. Possibly, if I would have been a stoner, I wouldn't have got the sweet job I have now. Which would be a Machinima Director.

while i whole heartedly want marijuana legalized your points don't make to much sense. Kids are going to get ahold of it no matter what, if the government would ever legalize weed, they would control it like alcohol, so you wouldn't see people in parks all over the place smoking weed cause your not allowed to do that with alcohol, people wouldn't be smoking on breaks or at work because you can't with alcohol. There are ways to test if you are high. (mainly shining a light into the pupil to see how it contracts) so you can get a dwi while under the influence ofmarijuana just like alcohol. And like i said earlier kids are going to get it no mater what, if they legalize it and put a age cap. (say 21) kids are still going to find a way to get it because there is still so so so so so so many cases of underage drinking. So sad as it may say if the government truly cares about our kids we would lose alot of drugs and all of alcohol, there goes energy drinks and caffinated pops. coffee goes away so do poppieseed muffins. So all in all it would be better for the government to legalize it and maybe keep it away from kids that way rather than having it illegal and kids getting it so much easier

NO. Stop that ******** , yeah maybe it's not as bad for you as people think BUT IT'S STILL BAD FOR YOU. Stop that harmless ******** . It ***** up your immune system, can cause short term memory loss, etc. So even if it's legalized, you CAN'T say it's harmless.

#28 to #17 - CargeLock (03/19/2012) [-]
It can cause short term memory loss while you're high. It can also mess up your immune system. I smoked for about 2 years straight and as soon as I stopped I began to cough up gray/dark brown tar. Googled it and apparently it's caused by the cilia in your lungs regrowing and kicking out all the nasty **** . Does marijuana cause lung cancer? No. Does the marijuana itself harm your lungs? No. Does the smoke/lighter fluid inhalation harm your lungs? Probably. But then again after I finished coughing up the **** there was no shortness of breath/cough and I felt perfectly normal. So I'm not really sure. But I know if I smoke again it's going to be through a vaporizer. No, it's not harmless. It is still less harmful than tobacco/alcohol though and it should be legalized.

Alcohol ***** you up WAY more than weed. They're both about as addictive as fast food, if you're addicted to weed then YOU'RE weak. I don't want to be put in prison because some other people are too weak to regulate their own lives. People like that SHOULD be detested like the way we treat heavy-drinkers.

Of course they're trying to make it seem normal, just as gay people try to make homosexuality seem normal. Just as black people try to make different races seem normal. It's just the logical reaction to being oppressed.

I smoke weed, and I don't doubt that it has negative side affects BUT when I start experiencing them I just stop smoking for a while. If it started becoming too much then I would give up all together, it's actually not hard. I would never ingest any drug that I didn't find beneficial. I took mdma once, which makes you incredibly open. I ranted on about everything that I could possibly say then when removed from inhibition. But MDMA is bad for you, so I chose to NEVER take it again. I have already got every benefit I could possibly take from it so I have no reason to do it again. I don't take any drugs that are just painkillers like opiates.

My drug of choice would be mushrooms, they are the OPPOSITE to addiction. Every time I take them I decide not to do it again for a LONG time as most people do. It's impossible to take it the next day as you get a very high tolerance after doing it. The days after taking it I get really motivated to do well in school and work harder at every aspect of my life.

Drugs have improved me socially, intellectually and morally. And I don't plan on doing them for the rest of my life. They are tools and are absolutely wonderful if used correctly.

I suppose. But I think it's the price of freedom. Even as they remain illegal, I would hope people be educated on them. A lot of the information we are taught about drugs are lies and exaggerations, we are never told how to use them responsibly if we ever decide to. I did have to read A LOT about everything I do, I spend a lot of time researching any active substance before putting it in my body and REALLY helps.
User avatar #227 to #182 - americanplague (03/19/2012) [-]
It's hard to reply to someone who ais as misinformed as you are, but I will make an attempt, yes, weed ruins memory, but so do a lot of substances, soda is damaging to the body, let's illegalize it. And if we want to say that weed is harmful in large doses so it can't be legalized, then let's outlaw water since that can kill you in large doses. And people aren't addicted to it, sure there's the mental addiction that goes to the extent of a person just wondering what something would be like if they were high, but nothing serious. So no, pot smokers don't fight for it because they have a problem, they fight for it because it is wrong to throw innocent people into a system that trains human beings to be animals.

Truthfully, no I'm not another weedfag, I smoked when I was younger, yes, but not anymore, I don't have the time for it, like a lot of people who know how to prioritize their lives. So there are the people who don't know how to handle a substance, if we were to illegalize everything that caused a minor inconvenience to a select group of people we would be more of dictated nation, so I fight for the legalization not for my wanting to get high, nor just for others to get high, there is a much larger picture and there really is no need to have this stuff criminalized.
#193 to #182 - doodthedud (03/19/2012) [-]
never had weed, never have any intention of having it.

The issue is more about precedents being set. Yeah, it can **** you up if abused, but so can alcohol, and cigarettes. And yet those are legal.
Why would the government ban one thing and not the other when they are so similar. That seems to be the real issue. It's a free country.
User avatar #238 to #193 - PubLandlord (03/19/2012) [-]
Watch the documentary by David Nutt about relative harms of drugs , alcohol is really high up on the list as being dangerous, but for most people I know they only drink really heavily once a week on a night out, and then work the rest of the week, or drink a small amount each night.

My arguement comes from all the people I know that smoke weed do so on pretty much a daily basis , have no incentive to work, revise and have dropped out of university. I know its not the same for everyone that smokes it but too many people argue that cannabis isn't addictive or habit forming, and that there would be no bad consequences of people doing it.

You want to legalize a drug, choose mdma
#243 to #238 - doodthedud (03/19/2012) [-]
But alcohol causes the same problems. The government tried to ban it for the same reasons and that failed miserably. At the end of the day, it's a free country, that means we can't run people's lives at all, for better or for worse. It's their dexision to make, not the government's.
User avatar #262 to #243 - PubLandlord (03/20/2012) [-]
Actually I think it is the governments decision, the government needs to step in and take charge, becuase although thats what "the people" want it's not what they need.

Government intervention isn't trying to "run" peoples lives but there needs to be system where an authority can step in and limit damaging things to society.

A heroin addict might argue that it is his body why can he not take a substance, but it's illegal because there is a high chance of him ruining his life, stealing to fund a habit, getting seriously ill and costing money to the NHS and then dying, the governments role is to try and help people, thus making a substance illegal.
User avatar #239 to #162 - PubLandlord (03/19/2012) [-]
Actually look at the UK , 150,000 people in 2009 were prescribed drugs for alcohol dependency and 7000 deaths. Alcohol is the single most damaging drug to society. Just because some people have the ability to control themselves doesn't mean that everyone does, you could then argue that heroin and cocaine should be legal
