Ya the big thing though is that it's kinda safe for a drug. Alcohol and tobacco can be hell on the body and so can weed just to a lesser extent. And it's one of those things like tobacco where you have to be aiming to OD to actually succeed, if it's possible even. There was just a ridiculous amount needed to OD.
User avatar #172 - Deeticky (01/27/2014) [-]
Yeah, I'm not super worried about the people OD'ing. I'm not even worried that much about the physical health effects when weed is prescribed and regulated. (Self medicating from a street dealer is a different story though) The problem with prescription marijuana is that it's far too easy for someone to have it prescribed to them. I would support medical legalization if that problem were more well-addressed.

I'm more worried the mental effects of pot. It can be addictive, it slows motor function and reaction time, it lowers inhibitions, it can make certain people more prone to anger, and long term use can result in a wide range of issues including memory problems and decreased cognitive function. It can have a lot of the same mental effects of alcohol. People who drive high can be a real problem, just like drunk drivers.

The other thing that gets on my nerves is stoner culture. Not every stoner is part of that culture. (You seem pretty reasonable, for instance.) But nonetheless, stoner culture is pretty widespread. It encourages laziness, carries a "fuckdapolice" mindset, and members of the stoner culture are more likely to become addicted and/or try harder drugs.

About what I just said though, There hasnt been a whole lot of research on stoner culture vs. casual smokers. I've had a lot of experiences with stoner culture members, and none of them were good. They were extremely hostile to anyone who didn't smoke pot, and always preached on that "pot would create world peace" and usually thought of themselves as superior without ever actually working hard at anything. The vast majority of them also got into harder drugs such as LSD, ecstasy, and crack as they became juniors and seniors in highschool. I'm pretty sure all of them ended up dropping out or going to community college as well.

That's not scientific research, just my experience. I don't expect anyone to accept my experience as scientific fact, but I would like to see some studies done on stoner culture.

only times i felt my heart rate change was when the weed had some other shit mixed in
other than that it was fine
User avatar #152 - Deeticky (01/27/2014) [-]
Ok. That's good to hear that your experience hasn't led to an extreme heart rate increase. Other people, like those in the studies cited at the bottom of the website I sourced, experienced that effect. I'm not trying to say pot is more dangerous than pother drugs like alchohol, I'm just saying that just because people don't OD on it doesn't mean it can't have negative health effects or kill you.

Why the fuck should you trust a site created by the government, the same government which has made illegal on a federal lvl? Enlighten me.
User avatar #163 - Deeticky (01/27/2014) [-]
I'm not asking you to have blind faith in the government. Blind opposition to the government is just as bad though. Anyway, I'll list some reasons why you can trust that data even though it is being explained on a .gov website.

1: The government didn't do the studies. There have been multiple studies done on the effects of pot, and there is a link at the bottom of the page that gives the scientific sources that the conclusions were based off of. You can feel free to review those studies. They're provided for you.

2: It's actually a fairly common stereotype for stoners to worry about the increased heart rate. There are tons of posts all over the web, yahoo answers, and stoner forums about people worrying about their heart rate, which they feel has gone out of control.

It doesn't work because it deprives enterprising men and women of the incentives needed to make any form of advancement. Why invent something if the State will take credit for it and leave you where you've always been? No incentive, no advancement.

Communism is not an economic theory, it has been proven to be impractical on a grand scale. Now Uncle Sam's inching closer and closer to it…

Communists like to cut corners in an effort to nationalize vital infrastructure.

Healthcare is no exception to this…

User avatar #473 - Deeticky (01/26/2014) [-]
First, you're oversimplifying communism. I don't support communism, but I also appreciate history and understand what communism was meant to do and why it didn't work.

Second, even if we follow your definition and say that communists like to cut corners and nationalize vital infrastructure, that's not what happened with healthcare reform in the U.S. It was an expensive program and it didn't nationalize healthcare. It only created a government plan and brought some new regulations on private insurers. The government competing with private industry is not the same as the government nationalizing a private industry.

Finally, even if we say that cutting corners and nationalizing vital infrastructure is what communists like to do, and even if we say that's what the government did, doing something that a group likes to do does not make you part of that group. Communism is a very specific economic theory, and the capitalism practiced here in the U.S. is extremely far from it.

Indeed. But the content only show how they look, so since we both have no idea about how they act, I think it's safe to say they're just an ordinary 'cool' young adult who loves the way they wear clothes.
User avatar #93 - Deeticky (01/26/2014) [-]
That was what I was trying to address with what I said about the gang signs. Gang signs are more than just looks. Popping gang signs, like the kid in the content is doing, is an action worthy of my judgement, I think.

IF you're going to point out a flaw in how mormon's used to talk of the past, do it right. Although its way more bastardized that it actually is in the BoM, the whole "black people were burned and got dark skin" was the lamanite people, and they didn't become black. They became Native American.

I went to the askmormon thing the LDS church hosts and this fellow name Spencer told me that around 2 weeks ago. What makes you certain?

Mormon's are groomed to be little politician's, so don't be surprised if Spencer wasn't exactly truthful.
User avatar #169 - mormon (01/27/2014) [-]
True, the people on that askmormon site tend to be nubs.
I'm not actually mormon, my friend who sometimes comes on this website is the mormon, maybe he'll talk about it with ya if he checks up.

If ya read the book, you know more than me. I don't read anything no matter what motivation i have.
#170 - rocksteady (01/27/2014) [-]
The book was targeting Native American's and African American's; basically anyone who's not white gets slammed pretty hard in The Book of Mormon; however, every religion has messed up shit in it. The Bible has a section that explains how owning slaves is a good thing... I would hope your Mormon friend picks and chooses what to believe. See the problem with the Mormon religion is that it's so young that most Mormon's I meet at Latter Day Saints Churches believe the entire book, which proves to be a problem, and is why someone like Romney wouldn't talk about his religious affiliation publicly.


This picture of Joseph Smith pretty much sums up how I felt about the book after I finished it.

Naw he's cool. He has tons of issues with what they think and do, yet agrees with alot and vouches for the belief and validity of it. His issues mainly consist of the people.

If he was like the people he's shown me at his churches and their activities let me tell you I would not be in support of the religion. He showed me more about the religion itself and not how people represent it.

Corporations have to raise their prices because government entities tax them extensively in an effort to supplant quality care with state care, but why?

I hate Communists...
User avatar #459 - Deeticky (01/26/2014) [-]
They don't have to raise their prices. Again, as I said earlier, prices are driven up by both factors. Corporations usually offer higher-quality products, especially here in the U.S. because of all the regulation, but the prices are driven way up by both the increased expense of regulation and the corporation's drive to maximize profit.

How is you hating communists relevant to this conversation? Government healthcare and communism are two very different things.
