Last week, momlogic brought you news on a controversial new movement that promotes pot use instead of alcohol. These parents want to ban pot prohibition because they believe it will save lives.
Which is the lesser of two evils? Our moms in our Community battle it out:
And herein lies the problem with pot and pot smokers. They think it not dangerous. A high driver is just as lethal as a drunk driver. A high college kid is just as impaired at making decisions as a drunk one. So sad that pot smokers can't admit that to themselves -- in the same way they can't admit their addiction.
-- No thanks
I have been a pot smoker for well more than 30 years, and I do not drink. I have tried alcohol and do not like the effects. I also owned a bar and seen the effects of alcohol on many people and it was terrible. I have researched pot for my college paper, and would go to the mats to get it legalized. I too, have had the talk with my children and told them if they have to do one or the other, please let it be pot. By the way, pot was outlawed in the 1930's because of money. Big paper and plastics business didn't want to compete and they still don't. You may be interested to learn that we can get more than 25,000 products from marijuana, including fuel to heat our homes and run our vehicles. Pot is a plant that can be harvested every 30 days, it does no harm to the earth and it has self-contained pest control. Hemp is an amazing God-given product that has gotten a bad rap. As for you sicko's blowing smoke in babies' faces,you are the reason so many politicians are still fighting against us who are responsible smokers. I for one will smoke to the end of my days and enjoy every minute of it.
Sounds extremely dangerous to me! I smoked marijuana for a period of about eight years and the damage it did to my mental well-being was horrendous. I gradually became detached from society and, later, from friends and family. I had no social life, barely left my home and reversed my sleep pattern so that I slept all day and stayed up all night. I totally isolated myself from every part of normal life and believe marijuana to be the direct cause of this. Just because the effects are not glaringly obvious in the same way as they are with drinking, it does not make marijuana 'safe.' This widely accepted myth could do a lot of damage to society and I urge anybody reading this to think twice before readily accepting that marijuana is the 'safe' option.
I think that it is all bad! If you have to have a man-made substance to get a kick out of life, you are a real loser! Drugs (any kind) and alcohol do more than damage you -- they damage the people that care the most. Think about your kids. Think about the "what if?"! It does so much more than you think it does.
I feel that marijuana should be legal, and that it is way better than drinking. I have smoked it, and know a lot of people that also smoke it; they do hold regular jobs, in fact some are in management, own their own businesses, and are regular everyday people. They just need a way to wind down at the end of the day. It doesn't make you go crazy like booze can, it is hard to overdose on. I don't mind that my kids smoke, I feel it is a lot safer than drinking,so please just legalize it!
