Yahoo has a story about how seven mayors are forming a coalition to remove marijuana from the federal list of illegal drugs. So of course this brings out all the pot smokers, even the "medical" users.
As I wrote:
This just makes me FURIOUS! What example are these mayors setting? They of all people should understand why we all need to speak up against pot even MORE! Have they SEEN the comments by pot smokers online? Have they SEEN the videos they make? Heck, they should read the thousands of mean, horrific, obscene and threatening emails they've sent me over the years. And what gets me is that I have ranted about this for 20 years online, writing thousands of comments, tons of blogs, even a BOOK about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal! Yet now we have MAYORS wanting to legalize it??
And then Somebody named stm420 writes in response to this article: "Good." Just the fact that he has 420 in his user name is a red flag.
And someone named Anthony, who claims to use marijuana for PAIN, writes:
Off all schedules and market it as an "Adult Botanical" much like the liquid drug is an "Adult Beverage". Morality and cannabis! When they stop hawking beer at ballgames and within earshot kids sit hearing drunks spill out vulgarities...... then talk morality . Cut the crap. Cannabis use does NOT= drunkenness.At 72 I've determined that cannabis a "Botanical" which has been demonized with false narratives and myths should be removed from all schedules You won't find those who just and only use cannabis on a "Skid Row".....those who just and only drink wine are on "Skid Row" they're are called "Winos" Young folks many who see the "Bull Dung" they see that their drunk uncle divorced,can't drive due to past DWI's and often preaches anti pot sermons has less going for him than some of their friends who only use cannabis. They can see that "Drunkies and Junkies" are people that are a threat. The use of cannabis has improved my functioning.I'm off the couch in the late afternoon easing arthritic pains and I'm NOT impaired. In the retirement community that I live in many seniors are on medications and consume alcohol beverages.This appears to do more harm than good. For one falls are a common occurrence. They have fell "Hook Line and Sinker" to the notion of the "Adult Beverage" and not a drug .Alcohol IS a liquid drug So again then take cannabis off of all schedules offer it as an ....."Adult Botanical". Long Island has hundreds + of A.A. meetings while just three M.A. meetings so what does that imply? Again an "Adult Botanical" and "Yes" it has benefits Again! Off all schedules and market it as an "Adult Botanical" much like the liquid drug is an "Adult Beverage". Morality and cannabis! When they stop hawking beer at ball games and within earshot kids sit hearing drunks spill out vulgarities...... then talk morality . Cut the crap. Cannabis use does NOT= drunkenness......or addiction.
AARGGHHH I am so sick of you guys bringing up booze and saying that pot is safer than alcohol, as if that makes it okay to get high on pot! As I've said a billion times, we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol! How hard is that? People need to grow up and set an example! The more you guys bring up alcohol, the more I realize we all need to speak up against pot even more, because you JUST DON'T GET IT. I have ranted against pot AND alcohol for 20 years online, typing my fingers to the bone, and the main reason I have to KEEP speaking up against pot year after year is because of comments like yours! And then you bring up about how cannabis helps your pain. WELL HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT RECREATIONAL USE? If you were a TRUE, decent MEDICAL user, using it only for PAIN, then you would not bring up all this stuff about alcohol!! Can't you see my point?? And you would be appalled at all the stupid, ridiculous things these pot smokers write and do online. Have you SEEN the comments they make? Have you SEEN the videos? I have ranted about this for years online! And it makes me furious that you guys always accuse us of thinking that if you smoke pot you are an addict. Nobody thinks that! Just like when I speak up against alcohol, the booze drinkers accuse me of thinking they are alcoholics! Nobody thinks that! Doesn't it even OCCUR to you guys that I am against pot and alcohol because they are mind-altering drugs?? All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs LIKE pot and alcohol to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", enjoy life, celebrate, socialize, etc. This is good morals and just plain common sense! And again, if you were a TRUE medical user, why would you bring up RECREATIONAL BOOZE DRINKING? What does that have to do with using cannabis as PAIN MEDICATION?
