U seem nice enough. Alcohol and cigarettes kill hundreds of thousands per yr. Pot kills no one. Doesn’t turn u into an ass but is legal
AARGGHH I have explained a billion times that the entire reason I have been forced to keep speaking up against pot year after year is because pot smokers use the excuse that it's safer than alcohol and cigarettes, and that it hasn't killed anybody!
Pot smokers always accuse me of thinking that marijuana is deadly and dangerous and kills people. NOBODY THINKS THAT! It doesn't even occur to them that we are against pot because it's a mind-altering drug! And I have said over and over we shouldn't use alcohol, either! 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!
And I have explained over and over that you can't compare things like cigarettes to pot and alcohol! That isn't the same at all! Of course cigarettes are dangerous and addictive and kill people, but we don't get high or stoned or tipsy or drunk from them! Again, it doesn't even occur to pot smokers that we are against pot because it's a mind-altering drug. They honestly see nothing wrong with getting high on marijuana. Just like booze drinkers see nothing wrong with getting buzzed or tipsy on alcohol. How sad is that? Again, using drugs to have "fun" is not what TRUE fun is! That's what makes it wrong and just plain immature!
