BEER DRINKER PROVES WHY WE ALL NEED TO KEEP SPEAKING UP AGAINST ALCOHOL IN ORDER TO HELP POT SMOKERS Gunvalds Bryggeri: You can drink beer without getting drunk, but you can't smoke pot for any other reason than getting high. Beer + food = true love. I wouldn't imagine a fine dinner without beer. You drink beer because you like the taste of it. If you want to get drunk you can always buy 97% ABV ethanol. I just came home from the liqour store. I bought 4 beers with an ABV under 5%, that won't make me even close to drunk. Besides, there is nothing wrong at all to get a bit tipsy time from time. After a hard week of work, studies or whatever it is as right as it could be. Beer is a huge part of Europes culture, and in later years also Americas. Beer has excisted for 7000 years. There is a good reason that it is still the most popular beverage in the world today. It also saved mankind when the water was infected with deadly bacteria... I am not trying to be rude, I am trying to help you to understand. You are being extremely narrow-minded. Because from what I understand from you, no one in the entire world should drink beer... because the MORMONS say so? Hell, it is like saying that everyone should blow them self up just because Al-Queda and IS does that... It is perfectly fine if you wish to take distance from drinking, but let people who enjoy beer drink beer, damn it! And people like me are not encouraging pot smokers to use narcotics. I do know a pot smoker, and he is never like "Damn, Gunvald is having a beer. I should shoot up heroin in my ass!". It does not work that way. If I see a small child eating candy, my urges to buy a new appartment doesn't increase. Do you know what happened during the prohibition? People started to brew their own beverages. The consumtion did never went down. It increased. What I don't get is what is YOUR problem with beer drinkers? If I'd have a beer now, nothing would affect you in any way. I know what your RELIGIONS problem with beer is. It is like most wrong interpretations of any religion: "It says like this in a man made book, it must be right". I bet that if some dude took LSD and wrote a new book, "The Book Of Mormon 2.0 - Return of the Dragon Testicle", and wrote a line about how good drugs were, suddenly alot of people would justify their drug use just because the book says so. But if we turn this around, you are doing the opposite. You are trying to make people feel bad, feel guilt, just because they drink alcohol and the book of YOUR religion says that it is wrong. It is not OUR religion Cindy, it is your beliefes. And if you want restrictions in your life, go on. But don't force others to think like you do. I want to set one conclusion of this. Whatever relevation some crazy guy had that you can relate to, good for you. But leave the others out of this. We don't believe in Mormon, you don't believe in the legal rights for someone to drink a beer. Don't say that drinking beer is wrong, because it is not. But to force your religion upon others is an unforgivable sin. Now I am going to have some coffee... On monday I will brew BEER. Cindybin:
You still don't get it. Even if you don't get DRUNK, it's still not right to use alcohol! People use it to get that "buzz", just like someone who might take a few tokes off a marijuana joint would. You could smoke a little bit of a joint and not get totally "high", but it still doesn't make it right. Just like if you take a few sips of alcohol, you wouldn't get DRUNK, but it still doesn't make it right.
I have explained over and over that I'm a convert to the Mormon Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and we have The Word of Wisdom which is revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This HELPS us. It is good to understand why we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs to have "fun", get buzzed, etc. That is not what TRUE fun is. The LDS church is the TRUE church, restored on the Earth in the latter days by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. It has the fullness of the gospel, the correct doctrines, and will bring you closer to Jesus Christ and the Bible than any other church. God has told us not to drink alcohol or use mind-altering drugs like marijuana recreationally! He doesn't say that it's okay to drink a little "in moderation" as long as you don't get drunk. We shouldn't drink at all! YOU can be a Mormon too, you know. It's not some closed group! That is why I am telling you about this, to HELP you!
And again, a casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law. Pot smokers always use the excuse that "pot is safer than alcohol." They see so many people just like you, who say that it's okay to drink "in moderation" as long as you don't get drunk, blah blah blah. So then of course they feel it's okay to smoke pot "in moderation" as long as they don't get totally stoned out of their gourd. But that is not true! We shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol, at all!!!
And it drives me nuts that you guys say that beer is a huge part of culture and that people have been drinking it for billions of years, blah blah blah. THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT RIGHT AND IT DOESN'T MEAN YOU HAVE TO! Aren't you better than that?? Again, alcohol is a DRUG. Just because it's legal doesn't make it right!
And one of the main reasons beer has been around for so long is because of the unsafe water! They had to drink this! But again, that doesn't make it right. Alcohol is a drug. It is a TOXIN. It is a highly-addictive psychoactive drug! It is not good to drink alcohol at all!
And I am not FORCING my religion on you! I can't FORCE anybody to do anything! I don't even know you guys! All I do is react to what you tell me on the Internet. And we are all here to make decisions in life, to exercise our free agency, to learn and grow spiritually. That's what life is all about! But do you REALLY think it's a wise decision to consume a toxic, highly-addictive psychoactive DRUG to relax and unwind, get "buzzed", have "fun", etc.? Aren't you better than that? Of course you are!
And if you would read the Book of Mormon and study, ponder and pray and ask God if it is true, you will receive an answer. You can't just say that you don't believe in it, because you haven't read the Book of Mormon! You need to do that! It will HELP you. It will change your life! You will not WANT to consume a mind-altering drug!
But again, my husband isn't even Mormon and HE doesn't drink. You don't have to be Mormon or even religious to know not to drink. It is just common sense!

WARNING: STRONG LANGUAGE
Someone named "naruto", who was defending a "medical marijuana" user named Jane Dro, writes:
shut the fuck up weed is less harmful then alcohol and its is used to treat some of the most harmful illnesses in the world such as cancer. im sure someone in ur life has died from cancer so i find it sad that u bash the treatments and the people that use it medically to treat something that has claimed so many lifes. now SHUT THE FUCK UP AND EDUCATE UR SELF ABOUT A TOPIC/SUBSTANCE BEFORE PREACHING UR NARROW MINDED VIEWS TO OTHER PEOPLE
OH YOU ARE HORRIBLE! I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS! Even after ALL I HAVE SAID, you are still saying the same things I have heard a billion times the past 15 years online! Comments like yours are the entire reason I have been forced to keep speaking up against pot all these years! I never even THOUGHT about pot before all this! But boy have you guys opened my eyes!! First of all, it is TERRIBLE you use profanity! HOW CRUDE AND OFFENSIVE! I have ranted against THAT for years online, too--ever since we got the Internet! You honestly expect me to start reading your comment and see the f-word right off the bat and suddenly realize how "wrong" I am?? OH BROTHER! When you talk like that, it makes me not even want to read your comment or respect what you have to say!
And then you bring up about how it's "less harmful than alcohol"? HAVE YOU NOT READ A THING I'VE WRITTEN?? I have said over and over we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol! how hard is that??? I rant against alcohol all the time, even more than pot! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker except they aren't breaking the law! Can't you see my point??
And then you bring up MEDICAL MARIJUANA?? MEDICAL MARIJUANA??? You tell me to do research and educate myself????? AARGGHHHH! Now you have REALLY done it. Now I have to add your comments to my huge folder filled with all the other THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who are just HORRIBLE. I have explained over and over a billion times for the past 15 years online that I am NOT AGAINST MEDICAL MARIJUANA! That is a TOTALLY different issue! I am a nice person and of course would not want anybody to suffer! If something like marijuana—or ANYTHING—truly helps a person with a true medical condition, then of COURSE that would be a good thing! I would use it myself if I had to, if it were legal for that and it worked. I have even been trying for YEARS to write an article on the benefits of medical marijuana! But I have yet to find a single decent person to interview to use as an example in my article! All the casual users rave about the medical benefits in order to justify getting high (while they cuss me out, threaten me with death and bodily harm, attack my religion, my looks, my sex life, make mean videos and websites about me, reveal my personal information, make fun of me for collecting dolls, tell me to kill myself, tell me they hope I get cancer, etc.) And even the "medical" users I've talked to and seen online have been horrible just like the recreational users. Even the "nice" ones don't get it and honestly can't see why it is wrong to use mind-altering drugs recreationally. How can I support them when they are like THAT??
Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using all the THOUSANDS of comments and emails I have collected from you guys, to show what you are like! The world needs to know!! Oh it is so depressing. I always thought MEDICAL users and supporters and growers would be NICE, and surely agree that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally. What parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and get high on POT? At any age? And I say the same things about alcohol! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! You guys always think that just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, that I'm all "hung up on pot" and think that it's all dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life." I never say that! All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs recreationally, that this is good morals and just plain common sense! And I am NOT against medical marijuana or ANYTHING that truly helps someone with a true medical condition! But as I said, I have yet to find any kind of true, decent medical marijuana user! It is just crazy!!!
OH YOU PEOPLE ARE JUST HORRIBLE. You all say the same stupid, stupid things. If you had told me NICELY that you are all about MEDICAL MARIJUANA, I would have gladly supported you and offered to interview you for the article I've been TRYING to write about this. But you blew it. You are just like all the others. Again, NOBODY IS AGAINST MEDICINE. Medicine is used to treat someone with an illness or condition they don't want to have in the first place! Of course I have had family members who have had cancer! Of course it is a terrible disease and of course if something like marijuana--or ANYTHING--truly helps a person with a true medical condition like that, it would be a good thing! I would use it myself if I had to, if it worked and were legal for that!
But can't you see that this Jane Dro person is not a TRUE medical user? I tried to give her a chance; I listened to the video she told me to listen to, and she started talking about taking "tokes" and "getting hella high on WEED" and when I confronted her about this, she used the crude acronym "LMFAO" and made fun of me for being a grown woman who still "plays with dolls" and told me I needed help!! And then her horrible fans said terrible, terrible things to me, and I thought she would wake up and see the type of people she attracts, but instead, she said she "still stands by her people" and called me "batsh*t crazy"! SHE IS HORRIBLE! And you support a woman like this??? Can't you see my point???
And now how can I possibly support YOU after all you have said to me, cussing at me, yelling at me, using the same lame excuses about how "pot is safer than alcohol"? WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH MEDICAL USE??? I have yet to find ONE SINGLE TRUE MEDICAL USER.
