I warned the mods a while ago (through report a post) to ban him before he does just that. Luckily Joe finally did. Could have been ugly.

Maybe a waste of humor resources but we don't need "aluminum rulez" in dozens of threads. Way to much moderation needed to let people like that loose on forums.

Should be available in refined form (smoking anything is bad, m'kay?) for medicinal purposes on prescription. Medical benefits are proved but the same is true for red wine in moderation. I don't want someone who's had half a bottle of claret driving or who's had a couple of pills of THC.

people who smoke enough marijuana to be medically effective eventually build up a tolerance such that the psychoactive effects are negligible, while the medicinal properties remain effective.


Although I agree completely that driving under the influence of THC is wrong. I think the best way to deal with it is the same way that drunk driving is dealt with. Make marijuana legal, but driving under the influence illegal, and punishable with very stiff penalties.

I am not an advocate of making it legal. However I find making cigarettes legal far worst than making pot illegal. More deaths and other health problems caused by cigarettes than just about all other drugs on the planet combined yet little has been done about it.

I guess money will always prevail over peoples well being no matter what the government claims eh?

Alcohol kills more people than all drugs combined as well.

See the main problem with alcohol is that it impairs you AND motivates you to go out and do things. When I'm high, you'd be lucky just to get me out of my bed, much less behind the wheel of a car. Drunkards are and will always be far more dangerous to the public than potheads.

Well, he hadn't reached my threshold of "I can't take it anymore" yet, but I'm not surprised that Joe's and your threshold is lower.

No big loss to the community, but some of the resulting humor was a good diversion from day to day life.

OK, I just finished reading most of Wing's threads. And let that be a lesson to you, kids.

This is your brain off drugs....any questions?
