  •  I mistrust many of the studies on the addictive (8+ / 0-)

    nature of weed (while admitting the weed of 1968 is not the weed of today) since many of them also see weed as a gateway drug while not admitting it has any medicinal properties.

    Also comparatively speaking how does weed compare to alcohol which we are willing to see legal and which does become the drug of choice for many teens due to its easy availability?

    Finally, looking at the social costs of the War on Weed, have we received value for our investment or has it been a large bust, with few positive results and enormous costs?

    •  Facts mean nothing to the ideological. (5+ / 0-)

      The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

      •  you are referring to entlord's comment (0+ / 0-)

        that he "mistrusts" the studies that don't give the results his ideology demands?

        As far as I'm concerned it is anti-scientific to claim that the war on drugs has prevented ZERO people from using drugs.  THat's a tall claim, and backed by zero actual evidence.

        We will notice that alcohol is also restricted for teens.

        Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.
