    Meh. The rare occasion I eat prepackaged salty snacks, I prefer the regional brand.

    A favorite rejoinder concerning many topics used by our illustrious university educated folks posting on this site is “correlation does not equal causation” ……

    In the article, one question asked was “have you ever seen someone die from an overdose of beer” ….. well ….. yes, I have. In fact, if you researched the cause of death in many traffic accidents one would find alcohol as “the only drug in their system” as is stated about marijuana in the cited article.

    I did not know that smoking pot could move the opening of the urethra from the tip of one’s penis to the underside, no matter how much you smoke (hypospadias).

    So maybe these 37 people had pre existing conditions that were the actual cause of the cardiac arrests and/or contributed to organ failure (which would then produce the “fishy smell” as trimethylamine is released during body degradation).

    Just because you do not agree with what people do does not mean that you should keep them from doing it against their will.

    If it does not pick your pocket or do you physical harm then mind your own business.

    Relax, it is a joke.
    Nobody died from smoking marijuana, get a grip.

    I would say you are wrong. It appears that at a minimum a few people a year die from illiness related to marijuana use. For example, the Maori of New Zealand are some of the heaviest cannibus users per capita on the planet, do not generally use tobacco, and they have one of the highest lung cancer rates of a distinct population group there is.
    Marijuana smoked is a carcenogin just as tobacco is. Both produce most of the same byproducts of combustion and are inhaled into the lungs.
    Yes, people generally smoke less marijuana per time period than cigarettes but that doesn’t change the potential health hazard except by degree.
    So, claims that marijuana is “safe” are non-sense. It has hazards associated with its use just like alcohol or tobacco does. I think with legalization it will become clear this is indeed the case.

    Michael and Sherlock, you really believe everything you read on the internet, don’t you, as long as it conforms to your preconceived prejudices. If that fake story were true, it would have been in at least one newspaper in Colorado. Google “pot overdoses in Colorado” to find the true story about the latest in a long string of literally unbelievable hoaxes that have fooled gullible conservatives.

    To all forum posters:

    I like flies getting caught in webs spun by … others. It’s far more fun to watch; let’s not warn the prey or tip their hand. Why spoil the fun.

    The 37 dead is a HOAX one of the people listed is a character from Breaking Bad.

    Well, at least this toon recognizes we who go for Lay’s potato chips, instead of those ghastly “Fritos”. Which, in backpacking trips we did carry them as fire starter, for which they work great!

    How many have died due to radical conservatives starting wars against countries that did nothing to us? (While ignoring those nice Saudis that “W” literally kissed up to ?)

    A tobacco store moved to a new location, leaving a shell of a building. The front was open except forvan iron gate. Through the gate, a woman picked tobacco leaves she thought were edible greens. She cooked and ate them. She died from tobacco poison.

    Hi RV/Dred, 2 things:
    1) My name change, the first in, oh, 8-10 years on this site, is a protest. You have had at least 2 monikers on this site. My /nick still has my original /nick so as to alert the regulars who I am. It won’t confuse/fool anyone. My avatar remains the same through-out all these years despite brief uses of other images to illustrate something temporary. The last being a South African flag at half mast for a week or so.

    2) Michael-wme often posts his own original posts, often very cleverly written. It’s excellent satire even if you disagree. I think his satire is excellent art, as do others.
    You’re welcome to disagree.
    In this instance he has opted to use another published satire piece and double-whammed it. He hasn’t claimed it as his own; he provides a link to it after-all. It’s a prop. Whoever follows it can ascertain whether or not it is a satire site.

    Arian, personally I see the biggest problem with legalization is that THC, the active agent in marijuana, says in a person’s system for up to 30 days after use. This will cause massive problems for employers, workers, and the legal system.
    As an example, a commerical airline pilot uses marijuana on a Friday. Monday he is flying and the aircraft is involved in an accident. He is tested for drugs and such as the FAA requires and THC is found in his system. Regardless of the level I can guarentee that passengers, and everyone else involved will sue that airline for allowing their pilot to fly “stoned.”
    The same can be applied to commerical drivers, workers in any industry, and a plethora of other circumstances.
    If this were not the case I suspect marijuana would already be legal. But, because of this I think legalization will be a costly mistake.
