  •  another insulting ' i don't like pot'diary ? (10+ / 0-)

    what a bunch of bullshit, some people have nothing better to do with their time i guess.

    you don't like pot smokers? who fucking cares? i don't like lazy people or those who don't trim their nostril hairs but i don't waste my time writing diaries about it .

    and by the way diarist, a tablespoon a day of hemp oil will lower your blood pressure noticeably in a very short time. you can buy it at the store.

    you're welcome in advance.

    have a nice day.

      •  no kidding, what's with these people? (0+ / 0-)

        and another pile of bullshit is the claims that it won't bring in much tax revenue.

        Despite the efforts of intolerant bastards to over-regulate, Colorado made nearly $200 million last year on medical cannabis alone. anyone want to take a guess at how much recreational will bring in?

        pharmacists thinking they're cannabis experts while peddling in and profiting from manufactured drugs...i can understand why they're sweating.

         others continually saying we can't change things because of some antiquated international law, as if international law never makes mistakes or has ulterior motives.

         i tend to get tired of this baloney.

    •  You are so wrong. I personally do not like pot, (0+ / 0-)

      because it make me paranoid. Which you should know if you know all about pot.
      It effects about 1/3 of people that way.
      because I do not like how it effects me does not mean i don't like people who smoke it.

      Which to me means you seem to think the two are the same thing.
      Like fundies saying because i do not believe in their way I am an atheist.

      You are condemning the writer for choosing not to smoke it at this time in his/her life?
      What happened to the freedom of CHOICE?

      I have many friends who choose to smoke and a few like me who do not like it for themselves.

      I hate the fact that lives are ruined because of the war on pot which was totally illogical.

      That is why I voted to legalize it here in the State of Washington.

      The Bush administration put in rules that people who were caught smoking pot were to be denied Pell Grants and kicked out of Public Housing. I had a neighbor who had been caught with part of a joint at a party, not in her apartment, and she and her 4 year old were evicted.

      It was sick. It was wrong and that angered me and I knew it had to be changed.

      Geeze, get those who don't smoke for whatever reason the credit for understanding those who do and credit us with helping de-criminalizing the use.

      Did you even bother to read what was written?

      •  Some of us can't (0+ / 0-)

        I am the same way. It doesn't bother me in the least that others do. It has been thirty years since I considered smoking a joint any differently than drinking a beer.

        In either case I am not of the opinion that they are harmful in moderation.

      •  no, i'm condemning the writer for calling those (0+ / 0-)

        of us who do smoke pot "fools".

        try thinking beyond the tip of your nose. this isn't about you, or the diarist and how you feel.

         it's about people getting arrested and having their lives messed up because they're doing something that some people don't like.

        wnat to give me a list of things that you do so maybe i can go all judgemental?

        accepting, or at least tolerating people who may be way different than yourself is a major part of living in A BIG TENT.

        so much moral superiority, misinformation and hypocrisy in these pot bashing diaries
