you are a waste of life arnt you? And also smoking weed does not "pollute your lungs"
Moderate smoking of marijuana appears to pose minimal danger to the lungs. Like tobacco smoke, marijuana smoke contains a number of irritants and carcinogens. But marijuana users typically smoke much less often than tobacco smokers, and over time, inhale much less smoke. As a result, the risk of serious lung damage should be lower in marijuana smokers. There have been no reports of lung cancer related solely to marijuana, and in a large study presented to the American Thoracic Society in 2006, even heavy users of smoked marijuana were found not to have any increased risk of lung cancer. Unlike heavy tobacco smokers, heavy marijuana smokers exhibit no obstruction of the lung's small airway. That indicates that people will not develop emphysema from smoking marijuana.
so you can blow me
thats what seperates us from terrorists... if we resort to the same tactics they use... then we are no different... Then you have to ask the question Why are we fighting these people... we are just like them. The thing that makes America a great country is that we dont resort to those tactics... we get shit done without resorting to terror tactics (even though the government uses scare tactics on the american public to get them to conform)
just because you have a drink doesnt mean you automically turn in to some crazy drunk... its called moderation... abstainence doesnt work... we know this because the bible belt has the highest teen pregnancy rate in the country
and what do you mean we won that one a long time ago? You realize that weed being illegal is more harmful than good... And i dare you to get into a debate about that because I have so many facts in favor of ending prohibition it will make your head spin
why does consuming alcohol set a bad example? the problem with drug education today is we tell children that drinking or smoking weed will kill you a lead to worse things... what we need to teach is moderation not abstainence... we should be showing our children by example that it is ok to use alcohol or marijuana in moderation
also you do not have to "smoke" marijuana... you can vaporize or injest it orally...
I do agree with your point that it shouldnt be used in public areas, much like alcohol and cigarettes
Hemp was a much broader term back in biblical days and the early in american histroy
Hemp (from Old English hænep, see cannabis (etymology)) is the common name for plants of the entire genus Cannabis, although the term is often used to refer only to Cannabis strains cultivated for industrial (non-drug) use.
"Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere."

"Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth & protection of the country."
- Thomas Jefferson
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably by the prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely connected with this."
- Albert Einstein

God said, "Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed which is upon the face of all the earth.…To you it will be for meat." … And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. (Genesis 1:29-31)
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times, some shall … speak lies in hypocrisy … commanding to abstain from meats which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth. (Paul: 1 Timothy 4:1-3)
"When I was a kid I inhaled frequently. That was the point." - Barack Obama
"Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?"
- Henry Ford
"Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marihuana in private for personal use... Therefore, I support legislation amending Federal law to eliminate all Federal criminal penalties for the possession of up to one ounce of marihuana."
- Jimmy Carter
