    “American taxpayers are now spending more than a billion dollars per year to incarcerate its citizens for pot. That’s according to statistics recently released by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics.”

    Hey, I understand that there are a lot of people out there that are really concerned about others health. So yes tobacco use is linked to cancer and numerous other health issues. Smoking Pot is also going to generate some of those health issues if not all of them. Alcohol use is another drug that generates health issues. So does eating meat or not exercising.

    Are we going to legislate everything? Are we going to lock up meat eaters too?

    Quit it people. Freedom is under attack. Stay out of my personal choices as long as I hurt no one but myself.

    I don’t smoke of drink (I eat a bunch of meat) but those that choose to do so should not be put in jail.

    @Ionizer

    Well, “20 years of study has concluded that marijuana smokers may actually be getting a bad rap and that they may actually have fewer accidents than other drivers. There have been several studies done over the past 20 years and every one of them has revealed that using marijuana actually has a very minor, if any, effect on the ability of a person to drive a car or other vehicle”.

    Of course you can find this as well:

    As for resurrection? Are you a “believer” ?

    How about some sympathy for the 12 million babies that were aborted over the last 12 years? Oh that’s right those lives don’t count.

    I’ve been smoking pot for 35 years and still do, daily. Finished college ahead of schedule. Worked at big corporations. Went to grad school. Started a company (which has been successful). Pay high taxes. Happily married to a woman who only occasionally indulges in pot. Haven’t had a driving violation since 1990 (wasn’t stoned).
    .
    I feel the same way about tobacco smokers and drinkers as I do about pot smokers: live and let live. We all know what the risks and costs of abuse are.
    .
    That being said, this cartoon is dumb. Most pot smokers I know are, or have been, or are sympathetic to cigarette smokers and often feel oppressed about that as well.
    .
    And to the poster above who somehow is trying to rope abortions into this discussion … dude … take a hit.

    @Chillbilly

    Dude, I did. The point was that no one knows when you will die or how it will happen. My detractor claimed that his sympathy would lie with those killed due to a stoned driver. Well, I simply asked does he have the same feelings for those 12 million children that did not get the chance to grow up to drive stoned or not.

    you pay your money and you take your chances.

    I quit smoking six years ago and never looked back. I never was into pot, it doesn’t agree with my body. Other people get silly, i get the runs and spend the night on the toilet, so there. But even if I would be able to smoke pot, medically and legally, I would apply the same rules for driving that I use with alcohol: don’t drink and drive! I’m a very good driver and I have no intention to blemish my record of zero incidents in 30 years (and no, I’m no slouch, just obeying the limits). So for me other people smoking pot is okay, but do it at home, please, or have a designated driver, thank you…

    Typical liberal insanity.

    OK Bruce. Cool. I get it.

    As far as daily smoking goes, I’ve taken a pass for extended periods of time for whatever reason (usually to take piss tests for jobs). After a while I can’t see why not smoking is any better than smoking other than for the mild health issues.

    It was for Bruce, but oddly relevant to yours as well.

    Legalize Tobacco

    Give up the dependence on the taxes

    Better yet … file it as a drug and so it can not be taxed…
