Political Activism Regarding MMJ... (Read 417 times)

     

    we need more people bringing illegal drugs across the border and peddling steroids.

    I admit it, I'm curious. I saw it mentioned earlier. Anyone want to share a link?

       Some studies have shown that fewer than 5 cigarettes a day do little to no sustained/long-term lung damage

       

      Prospective study in 43,000 people.  <5 cigarettes per day, 2.74X risk of lung cancer for men and 5.09X risk for women.  Most other smoking-related diseases at least 2X risk increase.

       

      Prospective mortality study by the American Cancer Society in >1 million people.  Page 28.

        Do people with a history of steroid abuse think differently, or does their different thinking cause them to abuse steroids?

        The process is the goal.

          It was in the Lance Armstrong thread I believe.  I am too lazy to search through that morass to find the post.

            Again, I'm not disputing whether the guy used "enhancing" drugs (I believe he did), I'm just stating that public opinion of the man has most certainly been influenced by the media. I also know first hand that drugs are prevalent in sports all the way down to high school. And how do I know that? Twenty years ago I used to smuggle anabolics across the border for athletes. Smile

                  To put things into perspective as to where I'm "coming from", I had an employee who is a "devout Christian" tell me one day when the vote to legalize Gay marriage was coming down that I needed to vote against it because his Pastor told the congregation that gay marriage would destroy America.

                   

                  After I was through with him, he would've felt better had he been ass fucked by a gay man...LOL! I tore him a new one so wide that he never tried to debate me again...Citing the US Constitution and the rights of others really frustrates those guys, ya know? I can respect his feelings and if that's how he feels, so much the better...but DON'T TELL ME HOW I SHOULD IMPOSE LEGISLATION TO FOIST CONTROL OVER THE LIVES OF OTHERS.

                   

                  Can I tell you about the appropriate use of quotation marks and capital letters?

                   

                  I regret to have anything to do with this conversation. But, FWIW, I'd no sooner use "ass f****d by a gay man" in a conversation with a real live gay friend, than I would in church.

                    Was it the overuse of quotes and capital letters?

                      :  Stop treating me like I am have the intelligence of an ice cube tray. When stoners start breaking into long diatribes about how they are in favor of legalization because of the decline in the use of hemp in rope, and my, isn't that a shame, because rope in the 1800's was just so darn strong, I wan't to scream.

                      How about the decline of the use of ice cube trays in household icemaking? Why isn't anyone mourning that? I'm not talking about those twisty, crappy plastic ones. I'm talking about the shiny metal ones with the mechanical levers and brushed aluminum dividers. Don't even get me started on automatic  "ice makers".  Man, ice tasted better then.

                      Janie, today I quit my job. And then I told my boss to go f*** himself, and then I blackmailed him for almost sixty thousand dollars. Pass the asparagus.

                        That's right!  Ice DID taste better back then!  Because you had to really WORK FOR IT!  It wasn't handed to you by mashing a lever on a damn machine!  You had to smack it, crack it, pull the aluminum lever, smack it again....

                         

                        And go back before that, Ice tasted EVEN BETTER when you had to take an ice pick to the 50 pound block and bust chunks off!  Now that was the best ice ever. Cool

                         

                        --As to the drug discussion, Regardless of legislation, society is moving more "liberal" on the issue and legislation cannot stop that trend.  Talk about it all day, but the move toward more pot use is steady and unstoppable. (Even though I personally feel it should remain illegal.  More teens on pot = bad idea.).

                        --- Now, it is almost Friday, and this thread seems to be warming up quickly and have some serious "Friday Meltdown" potential.   Perhaps it is time to talk about that ridiculous troll up there and get things fired up!

                          The hard part about activism is getting people on your side.  It's one thing to be passionate about what you believe in.  But when it becomes grossly offensive like this?  People become alienated and stop listening.
