In the justice system, intent largely influences a sentence. This is why manslaughter isn't the same as murder and we separate murder in various degrees.
Attempted murder demonstrates someone's propensity to kill.
All DUI demonstrates is someone's lack of judgement.

That is how our justice system works, yes.

I like to think about the victim more than the perpetrator. Alex is dead because Deshawn got mad and shot him. Bethany is dead because Dequanda got drunk and drove. Neither victim is less dead than the other. I feel the punishment for the killer should be the same.

"Experts at Dalhousie University in Canada reviewed nine studies of more than 49,000 people involved in accidents on public roads involving one or more motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. Marijuana use was confirmed by blood tests or self-reporting."

When the correlation is high, further investigation is certainly merited. Marijuana has been shown to impair judgement and motor skills. Those are two things you would not want impaired while driving.

To answer this, yes.
I believe there should be stricter laws regarding what you do while under the influence of a drug, but no drugs should be legal.
Our bodies are our property and our right. I follow the philosophical thought of John Locke in that sense. If I take a hammer to my computer will the police arrest me?
No. Only once I take a hammer to someone else's
I also believe slavery should be legal.
User avatar #822 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
I understand your philosophy, though I respectfully disagree with it.

I don't understand how that philosophy could possibly be in support of slavery? If I'm supposed to have 100 percent ownership of my body and my decisions, then why would it be ok for someone else to own me?

"Although acute cannabis intoxication following smoking has been shown to mildly impair psychomotor skills, this impairment is seldom severe or long lasting. In closed course and driving simulator studies, marijuana’s acute effects on psychomotor performance include minor impairments in tracking (eye movement control) and reaction time, as well as variation in lateral positioning, headway (drivers under the influence of cannabis tend to follow less closely to the vehicle in front of them), and speed (drivers tend to decrease speed following cannabis inhalation). In general, these variations in driving behavior are noticeably less consistent or pronounced than the impairments exhibited by subjects under the influence of alcohol. Also, unlike subjects impaired by alcohol, individuals under the influence of cannabis tend to be aware of their impairment and try to compensate for it accordingly, either by driving more cautiously or by expressing an unwillingness to drive altogether"

I don't feel like that majority of people would start disregarding their own health if universal healthcare were instated. Most people I've met hate hospitals, not to mention the pain or long term effects of disregarding one's own health.

I would also gladly accept a tax raise to help pay for others health. i really do care about them. I think weed would be a good thing if it were in pill form (To avoid damage to lungs and to prevent others from being bothered) and also if people only did it right before going to sleep.

It's not something that I feel great about doing (If it were up to me). I just can't stand to see innocents die because some stoner decided to drive to Taco Bell. I definitely feel that the downsides of weed outweigh the benefits. Same with alcohol.

I also have a problem with weed on a personal level. This has nothing to do with why I want it illegal, but it's my main moral reason for not smoking it.: The brain releases the "feel good" chemicals when you accomplish something. They are your reward. Using drugs is like cheating at life to me. You get the "feel good" chemicals without any work.

When I eat a fattening food, it does nothing to affect my motor skills or judgement. I am harmless to others.

I don't care if people drink themselves to death. The problem I have is when they get behind the wheel high or drunk and kill someone else, or when they make any other stupid decision while high or drunk that hurts or kills innocents.

"Although acute cannabis intoxication following smoking has been shown to mildly impair psychomotor skills, this impairment is seldom severe or long lasting. In closed course and driving simulator studies, marijuana’s acute effects on psychomotor performance include minor impairments in tracking (eye movement control) and reaction time, as well as variation in lateral positioning, headway (drivers under the influence of cannabis tend to follow less closely to the vehicle in front of them), and speed (drivers tend to decrease speed following cannabis inhalation). In general, these variations in driving behavior are noticeably less consistent or pronounced than the impairments exhibited by subjects under the influence of alcohol. Also, unlike subjects impaired by alcohol, individuals under the influence of cannabis tend to be aware of their impairment and try to compensate for it accordingly, either by driving more cautiously or by expressing an unwillingness to drive altogether"

Most people are too dumb or too lazy to control their animal instincts and urges. That is why people rape and murder. It is an incredibly hard thing to accept. I would love to have a society in which a person is allowed more freedoms based on their level of maturity. Y'know, let people drink and smoke who can handle it. I will never smoke and I will never drink to excess, but I've seen a few people who can handle either one, and I've seen many people who can't. The people who can't are the ones who ruin it for the rest of us.

For a cancer patient, you are correct. For some guy who claims back pain just so he can get high, no. It also increases for risk for certain cancers, while decreasing your risk for others. It doesn't permanently lower your IQ, but when you are high your judgment and motor skills are impaired. The average person is more likely to make bad decisions while high. Some people become calmer while high, some people become angrier.

My girlfriend was shoved against a wall and choked by her ex boyfriend who was high at the time. I personally wish that they could make more drunkenness laws to prevent these same effects coming from alcohol. I have met people whose entire families have been destroyed by both alcohol and weed.

because your body is yours to sell.
That, in no way, constitutes inherited slavery.
User avatar #831 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
You didn't mention that you were selling yourself into slavery. I assumed it was forced as most slavery historically was forced.
User avatar #837 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Haha I suppose indentured servitude would be a better term. "Slavery" is more dramatic and controversial though.
User avatar #841 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
That is a better term. I personally don't really care on that one. It doesn't harm people, so it's not my business.
User avatar #809 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
No drug should be illegal* DAMN YOU ENGLISH, a simple letter or two left out completely reverses the meaning of your sentence!
User avatar #641 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
You want the government to regiment your life?
To control your every action to make an ideally safe world for you and those around you?
When Heart Disease is, by far, the number one killer of the western world -- illegalize fast food before Marijuana.
I'm sorry, but I read 1984 in highschool and didn't think "Hey, this sounds like a nice place to live!"
User avatar #660 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
I read 1984 as well. It was a wonderful book. Although the world in 1984 was an awful one to live in, it is far better than living in an inner city ghetto. I can vouch from experience. Most people are too dumb or too lazy to control their animal instincts and urges. That is why people rape and murder. It is an incredibly hard thing to accept. I would love to have a society in which a person is allowed more freedoms based on their level of maturity. Y'know, let people drink and smoke who can handle it. I will never smoke and I will never drink to excess, but I've seen a few people who can handle either one, and I've seen many people who can't. The people who can't are the ones who ruin it for the rest of us.

Specialized laws are extremely counter-intuitive in a democratic society.
User avatar #672 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
I dislike democracy as well. People are too influenced by the media, political parties, religion, etc, and we end up with cruddy leaders. I would prefer that we be a meritocracy.
User avatar #682 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Meritocracy is elitist garbage. My IQ has tested at near-genius levels and would never support that.
User avatar #738 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
You have a right to your opinion, but telling me that your IQ is high doesn't support any arguments you may have against it. I have a high IQ as well. My parents met each other at Mensa.

What would you suggest we do to stop stupid people from killing innocents?
User avatar #739 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Stupid people from killing innocents?
Most serial killers are highly intelligent.
User avatar #741 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
The vast majority of murders are not committed by serial killers.
User avatar #746 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Respond to my argument regarding enforcing strict diets.
Heart disease is, by a large margin, the greatest killer of the western world.
User avatar #751 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
I would love to!

When I eat a fattening food, it does nothing to affect my motor skills or judgement. I am harmless to others.

I don't care if people drink themselves to death. The problem I have is when they get behind the wheel high or drunk and kill someone else, or when they make any other stupid decision while high or drunk that hurts or kills innocents. If marijuana use never hurt innocents I would have no problem with it.

When I eat fattening food. I am only hurting myself. Not anyone else.
User avatar #762 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Also: surely you don't support universal healthcare either
User avatar #766 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
How did this become about Universal healthcare?

Also, I do support some sort of health plan for the poor. Those people don't deserve to die because they can't afford a doctor.
User avatar #773 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
because when universal healthcare comes into play, your disregard for your own health starts affecting others.
User avatar #782 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
I don't feel like that majority of people would start disregarding their own health if universal healthcare were instated. Most people I've met hate hospitals, not to mention the pain or long term effects of disregarding one's own health.

I would also gladly accept a tax raise to help pay for others health. i really do care about them. I think weed would be a good thing if it were in pill form (To avoid damage to lungs and to prevent others from being bothered) and also if people only did it right before going to sleep. I understand that people find it relaxing.
User avatar #760 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
and how is it right to outlaw it for the majority of people who do those and don't harm others?
User avatar #774 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
It's not something that I feel great about doing (If it were up to me). I just can't stand to see innocents die because some stoner decided to drive to Taco Bell. I definitely feel that the downsides of weed outweigh the benefits. Same with alcohol.

I also have a problem with weed on a personal level. This has nothing to do with why I want it illegal, but it's my main moral reason for not smoking it.: The brain releases the "feel good" chemicals when you accomplish something. They are your reward. Using drugs is like cheating at life to me. You get the "feel good" chemicals without any work.

"Although acute cannabis intoxication following smoking has been shown to mildly impair psychomotor skills, this impairment is seldom severe or long lasting. In closed course and driving simulator studies, marijuana’s acute effects on psychomotor performance include minor impairments in tracking (eye movement control) and reaction time, as well as variation in lateral positioning, headway (drivers under the influence of cannabis tend to follow less closely to the vehicle in front of them), and speed (drivers tend to decrease speed following cannabis inhalation). In general, these variations in driving behavior are noticeably less consistent or pronounced than the impairments exhibited by subjects under the influence of alcohol. Also, unlike subjects impaired by alcohol, individuals under the influence of cannabis tend to be aware of their impairment and try to compensate for it accordingly, either by driving more cautiously or by expressing an unwillingness to drive altogether"

"Experts at Dalhousie University in Canada reviewed nine studies of more than 49,000 people involved in accidents on public roads involving one or more motor vehicles, including cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles. Marijuana use was confirmed by blood tests or self-reporting."

One of the first things you learn in any college statistics course is that correlation is not causation.
User avatar #833 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
When the correlation is high, further investigation is certainly merited. Marijuana has been shown to impair judgement and motor skills. Those are two things you would not want impaired while driving.

Are you suggesting that driving while intoxicated on marijuana is ok?
User avatar #835 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
No, I am suggesting, however, that instead of illegalizing marijuana altogether, driving while on marijuana should be reprimanded -- Oh wait, it is, via DUI laws.
User avatar #753 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
Good thing we didn't legalize DUI then, huh?
User avatar #840 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
If DUI laws were harsher, such as equating DUI to attempted murder, I might be more ok with legalizing it.
User avatar #842 - CoolStoryBrosky (11/08/2012) [-]
In the justice system, intent largely influences a sentence. This is why manslaughter isn't the same as murder and we separate murder in various degrees.
Attempted murder demonstrates someone's propensity to kill.
All DUI demonstrates is someone's lack of judgement.
User avatar #843 - Deeticky (11/08/2012) [-]
That is how our justice system works, yes.

I like to think about the victim more than the perpetrator. Alex is dead because Deshawn got mad and shot him. Bethany is dead because Dequanda got drunk and drove. Neither victim is less dead than the other. I feel the punishment for the killer should be the same.
