You make a great point Hiker.  It's all about freedom and responsibility.  You can't have one work without the other.  I wish more Americans though this way.

 

Thank you.

I try to interject some salient points now and again.

No worries as I myself suffer from fat finger syndrome.

I only hike because I have to, and if I have a choice, prefer not to.   Big smile

Hopefully it won't stop until we rid ourselves of every useless law that the Government has used to intrude in our lives. Laws based on Protecting us from various things that are threatning, dangerous to our health and/or safety or politically incorrect.

I am a free man, born that way and plan to stay that way. I dont need some politican or Bureaucrat to tell me what I can and can not eat, wear, drink, smoke, shoot, drive,..etc.

I have seen the argument on here that what benifit to society will there be if marijuana were to be made legal. The question should be What has society benifited by making marijuana illegal? What freedoms have we lost because of the war on this weed? How many people have actually died from marijuana use? How many people have died because it is illegal?

There are several posters on here whom, from experience, I know to be very intelligent, educated and like-minded as I, that have stated positions that seem to lack the knowlege of why marijuana was made illegal in the first place. It was not because it had become a dangerous "drug" or a life altering addictive drug. It was made illegal due to economic competition. Two names that I believe are known to all who read this, were instrumental in getting marijuana made an illegal "drug". William Randolf Hearst and Dupont chemical company. Hearst because of the competition between his Timber investments to make paper for his Newspaper empire and that of the hemp paper makers. Dupont had just patented Nylon and were in direct competion with hemp cloth makers.

Various pharmaceutical companies joined in the effort to outlaw marijuana."The pharmaceutical companies could neither identify nor standardize cannabis dosages, and besides, with cannabis, folks could grow their own medicine and not have to purchase it from large companies." The AMA did not support the making of marijuana illegal. 

Marijuana was not illegal in the US until 1937 when legislation introduced by Harry J. Anslinger,Director of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics with the backing of Hearst and Dupont was submitted to congress. August 2, 1937, marijuana became illegal at the federal level

Now those are the facts. Why do you still believe that marijuana should be illegal?

I can say that, proudly, in all truth and honesty.  Never had any desire to even think about trying any type of recreation drug (not including cafeene, or nicotine).  Sure I've had some derivitives of cocaine like novacaine and the like when having a tooth filled.  Also have had prescription pain killers after wisedome teeth extraction and other minor surgury, etc.  Beyond that I don't do drugs at all for recreational purposes.  Just not my thing.  With that being said I do agree that there is usefulness in marijuana and other plant derived drugs.  But abuse anything and it will destroy a productive society.
