Does anyone think the Choomer in Chief would think any different...
This expert analysis from one who misspent his youth sucking on cannabis, among other things.
So sayeth the First Citizen! And as he sayeth, so shall it be ....
All Potheads think that way
Smoking marijuana robs a person of the willingness to work and arrests emotional development. Obama is a prime example.
Studies suggest that even light marijuana use causes long-lasting changes in the brain. Past use has also been shown to have an effect on offspring, even if they are born long after the marijuana use. Marijuana also precipitates psychotic disorders, although it is not clear (to me, at least) whether it causes people who are already predisposed to become psychotic, or if it can happen to anyone.
Bottom line, marijuana use is not comparable to alcohol.
It is just a way to get the Democrat base out. It worked in Colorado, so they are trying it nationwide.
and Fast Food is Deadly ,LOL
a guy on Fox just said the Demonuts will use the legalization of the drug to bring young voters back to the Demo Party(Cult)
“Bottom line, marijuana use is not comparable to alcohol.”
I agree. That said, the way things are going, it might be time to invest in companies that are going to market devices for checking drivers etc. for the THC content in their bloodstream.
First step in ending the rights-stealing WOD.
A. George Soros.. has put millions behind marijuana legalization for years now.
B. George Soros.. has put millions behind Barry Soetero ...
C. Your prediction rings all too true!
Truthfully, alcohol is damned deadly stuff. It is in the same class as automobile accidents as far as mortality goes, so comparing it with other things, even drugs, will most always be wanting.
Mortality associated with marijuana is both indirect and indeterminate, after a quarter century of research. At most it is a fraction of a percent, within the margin of error of other conditions.
The unthinkable has happened! I finally agree with Barack Obama about something.
Pot is waaaaaay less dangerous than alcohol. Way.
also, juggling hatchets is no more dangerous than Russian Roulette...
Obama is no Einstein, and not all things are relative.
“...because it would prevent unfair penalties for some users.”
My, my, my.... that Barack is pretty racist.
