Yet another righteous observation with someone who morally equates laws against mind destroying drugs with slavery.

Pssst....don't generalize. It weakens your argument. Marijuana does not kill brain cells. Alcohol does. You should specify which "mind destroying" drugs you're talking about.

Marijuana was legal for quite some time in this country. Are you willing to say that drug use has decreased since marijuana was made illegal?

Please provide evidence for your research.

Provide evidence to the contrary or accept it as fact.

LOL, funny how quickly your own words show what a goof you truly are. As well as a liar and a moral slob.

For the purposes of this thread, I have no opinion on the legality of alcohol. I will, however, point out that alcohol use fell by 50% during Prohibition.

But crime related to alcohol increased by 100%. Which would you like: more criminals or more people that use mood altering substances?

My answer was not dishonest. Rather, it was the correct meaning as used in biblical context. Otherwise, as you have noted the broader primary definition or rather scientific classification may include indigestible items. In choosing this definition as your interpretation it is as if you are using science and deceptive word play to call God a liar.

My answer was not self serving. It should be a duty for freedom loving Republicans to keep government from imposing upon individuals, through force and coercion, arbitrary puritanical beliefs that are contrary to established religious facts, beliefs and scripture.

"The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time;
the hand of force may destroy, but cannot disjoin them."
--Thomas Jefferson, 1774.

It is simple fascist ignorance to believe that this herb bearing a seed is just a weed to be eradicated when it just so happens that its seed contains the most complete and absorbable combination of amino acids required by the human body for sustenance of any plant on the face of Earth

It was God which gave us free will.
Satan, the adversary, attempts to make us use it adversely to the will of God. Since God made herb, saw that it was good and gave it to man then those that wish to eradicate it are opposed to the will of God.

So now you know more about drug use than Ozzie, who says that pot use led his son jack to try harder drugs?

Abusing chemicals for most of one’s life does not make one a Chemist.

Being a psychotic does not make one a Psychiatrist.

So drugs are potentially bad for you then?

Life in general is potentially bad for you since we all die.

Sure, and more and more people are pro-war on drugs too. Contrary to your naive brush-offs, I have a lot of first hand drug addicts. All of them started with pot. Many can not stand alcohol.

Just because someone that is willing to use hard drugs also used pot does not prove a causal relationship.

Let’s examine other correlations

All users of hard drugs have a beating heart. Unlike pot use – the correlation between people with beating hearts and hard drug use is a perfect 100% therefore having a beating hearts leads to hard drug use. (BTW: there is 0% hard drug use among people that do not have beating hearts).

Starting to see the folly of unwarranted correlations?

Spelling is the last refuge of people with no intelligent rejoinder in this forum.

Claiming people are on drugs is the second to the last refuge of people with no intellegent rejoinder in this forum.

Laws against 'mind-destroying drugs'(LOL!) are not morally equivalent to slavery.

Nor are laws against possession of fire-arms morally equivalent to cannibalism.

One really must learn to make distinctions - it's the first sign of practical intelligence.

"Less people drank during Prohibition."

Are you going to lobby our elected officials to bring back alcohol prohibition?

Riiight... So why am I the only one making intelligent points here. Either you guys are all stupid, your stance has no defensible merit, or you are all under the influence of some mind altering substance. Which is it?

Not at all. Just pointing out the stupidity of potheads who think Prohibition was repealed because it wasn't working. It was repealed because a majority of Americans wanted alcohol legal.

You agree claiming people are on drugs is the second to last refuge of people with no intelligent rejoinder in this forum and then in the same message you speculate that everybody that does not agree with your opinion must be stupid or on drugs.

Amazing.

Let me get this straight, are you claiming alcohol prohibition was a great success? And you have the nerve to speculate that other people may be stupid.
