I haven't smoked a jay in about a month, and looking at the evidence shown above, i'm not much inclined to start again. Besides, it is much too expensive. Now if I could just kick cigarettes permanantly (in fact, it wouldn't be a problem if I had motivation to do so, having pretty high willpower i think.) But isn't it sad that we as humans don't stop doing something until we see an immediate consequence. Usually coughing up blood one morning or being told you have cancer. Some much for homo sapiens' much vaunted ability to forsee consequences and change behavior accordingly.
I do have something to say about legalization of hemp though. Although your first statement was taken from John Galt Jr., it is pretty easy to figure out that you don't agree with it for the most part. Well, what DO you think about hemp? I'm sure you're aware that no one but paint thinner junkies would attempt to smoke it, since there's basically no THC. I did some research in college on the subject and it is amazing what good things hemp could do for the US. Not only would it save trees, but provide an alternative to long-term degradable nasties like some plastics (which also pollute our air and water). The only reason that hemp is not legal today is the lumber people lobby against it AND since it looks so much like its cousin cannibus sativa Feds are worried they won't be able to spot an illegal patch of weed smack in the middle of a 10,000 acre hemp field. Well, 1. Lumber people, get over it. Your jobs can be diverted elsewhere, hmmm, maybe even hemp production! 2. If the Feds are that worried let them regulate the hemp fields; put 'em inside a fence with gaurds if need be. That's what they're already doing on campuses in Hawaii, Minnesota and another state i can't remember. In conclusion, keep weed illegal, legalize hemp. Can anyone think of a catchy slogan for that?

Have you seen the documentary that was narrated by woody harrelson? "Grass" - is the title.

I had a few problems with some of the facts. Mainly this one "* Five marijuana cigarettes have the same cancer-causing capacity as 112 conventional cigarettes. " - But earlier it was indicated by other studies that marijuana has 4 times the amount of tar that a regular cigarette has, and of course regular cigarettes have filters.

I'll be back with some info.

I was on DRCnet, reading an article about refuting drug myths, and realized that we could get so bogged down trading scientific research sources that the actual issues misses the point.

It is my ascertion (as a proud liberatarian, and no that is not the same as an anarchist) that individual responsibility and accountability are necessary. In the same token, you cannot treat adults like children and expect them to behave as adults! They will regress to the lowest common denominator, it's social psychology.

Let's take, for example, the well-publicized and much-touted longitudinal research regarding legalization in Holland. The discovered the that overall rates of use of marijuana did not increase after legalization, and the rates of abuse of harder drugs actually decreased slightly.

Personally, I think that everyone is addicted to something. Did you check out the link I posted the other day about ancestral drug use and survival? Here:
http://www.newscientist.com/ne.....ns99992095

Ideally, no one would use drugs. But I think that that inclination is the kind of idea that is held only by the idealistic. I can't imagine any method of treatment, any method of education, that would prevent a habit that has been in place for tens of thousands of years, yes? There are even depictions of the Hindu God Shiva somking pot to go into meditative trances.

I just can't forsee a world where everyone is sober. It hasn't happened yet!
