I don't care if someone smokes weed for a legitimate reason, but I ******* hate stoners. The culture is what is holding it back.
User avatar #80 to #76 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
You know what I ******* hate?
Narrow minded people.
User avatar #81 to #80 - oxan (03/02/2012) [-]
If you're implying I'm narrow minded, do you wish to explain HOW?
User avatar #154 to #81 - herecomesjohnny ONLINE (03/02/2012) [-]
Holding it back? How puerile is it not to do something because other people you don't like do the same? Grow up, man..
User avatar #172 to #154 - oxan (03/02/2012) [-]
I choose not to do it for other reasons. The reason people are generally against smoking marijuana is because of the stoner culture. You have to be Patrick Starfish not to know that.

ORR
People collect their own opinion on it.
And not the image created by the "stoner culture"
In fact,
most people are against it are against it because
A) It's not productive time consumption
B) They don't like the "high" induced.
C) Raised to believe it's terrible and you'll be a terrible person for smoking it.
D) They just don't give a **** .

Who gives a **** about the image society makes about it?
If you like it,
smoke it.
If you dont,
don't smoke it.

Now I know where Bronies are coming from.
User avatar #759 to #186 - oxan (03/02/2012) [-]
You know why people have negative views on it? Because all they see of the people who smoke it are the barefoot dirty 'tards that walk around talking about how many bowls they did the night before too loud.

It's much like Gay Pride Parades. I support (for reasons about to come very obvious when I type the next word) our rights. However, the parades are focused on the very stereotypical homosexual image, and I don't think it's helping our cause.
User avatar #82 to #81 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
Yes I can,
quite easily.
"... but I ******* hate stoners."
You're saying you hate a bunch of people simply judging on the basis of their drug consumption?
That's pretty narrow minded.

User avatar #145 to #82 - oxan (03/02/2012) [-]
Uh, no. If you read my post, you would understand. I don't care if someone smokes marijuana (basically), but I hate the Stoner culture. I don't know how I could have made that any clearer.
User avatar #149 to #145 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
I read your post.
"I don't care if someone smokes weed for a legitimate reason, but I ******* hate stoners. The culture is what is holding it back. "

Let's look at this:
but I ******* hate stoners

Now,
lets look at this statement :

I don't care if someone smokes marijuana
Make up your mind.

Smoking weed doesn't make you a stoner.

The post below explained my point. It's a simple argument, because that's all it has to be.
#200 to #185 - sanepane (03/02/2012) [-]
While I agree with the whole people-who-judge-just-on-one-thing-are-narrow-minded argument, I don't think you saw the point oxan was trying to make (or maybe you did, I'm sorry if I state the obvious).

Have you ever watched Dazed and Confused (if you haven't then you should watch it many times consecutively)? There are these two characters in it who'll make for a good case-in-point.

The one on the right is Slater and he's the ultimate stoner. It's what he does. He smokes a lot of weed. He probably spends most of his time thinking about it. You could say that his life revolves around it. He wears a potleaf shirt, draws cannabis-themed pictures on the walls of the school hallways and to be honest I don't think he was sober for one second of the movie. To him toking isn't hobby, it's a way of life.

The one on the left is Dawson. He's a member of the high school football team, an avid ladies man and a smartass. He also smokes weed. It doesn't seem to be a huge part of his life though, just something on the side.

That's what oxan was trying to say, I think. I don't agree with him personally (I think Slater is a badass and most stoners I've met are real bros), but still, disliking stoners is different to disliking cannabis and (imho) less narrow-minded.

User avatar #205 to #200 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
I understood when he implied the difference between the two,
I wrote what I wrote because his point's weren't exactly "strong"
The comments are kinda of just off branches of points,
not much to converse over.
T'is all (:

Refuse?
Alright bitch lets play ball.
Marijuana is illegal mainly for health concerns and ... laziness. Some people would be content to stay in and smoke all day, Not good for econmy, productivity, society etc, etc. Most people still smoke it regardless of the law, because they prefer to kick back and relaz after a hard days work. No emotional abuse, no life's ended. The worse thing?
Maybe the emotional strain on the smoker.
And even then,
they know the risks.
Now lets look at murderers, rapist, and pedophiles.
What are the out comes?
Rape> Severe emotional trauma,.
Pedophillia> Severe emotional trauma, which can extend to family and friends. One in eight victims grow up to practice this action on others.
Murder> loss of life, Trauma to family and friends.

Yes, both are illegal,
however,
which is worse?
Having a bong to chill for a couple hours which affect YOUR body and no one else's?
Or the three stated above.

Sorry to cut in the internet fight   
But I think drugs are illegal because of that and we can't tax them. (amerifag)

The more the merrier, my friend.
If Marijuana was legalized,
the government would tax the **** out of it.

User avatar #204 to #201 - lightingeagle (03/02/2012) [-]
That is why I think was a main end of prohibition. We need beer and cigs for tax. If we can tax street drugs, I would bet money I don't have you could get them at gas stations. Hell, we would have less inmates and less prison costs with legal drugs. Just do them on your properity, what harm would be done
(sorry for horrid grammar)
User avatar #213 to #204 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
Well, the prohibition was ended because no one could forgo the liquor.
So the government smartened up and decided to make money off it.
Here in Canada Bills were trying to be passed to legalize it because too many teens are showing up to the court house for having a pathetic amount of weed.
So long as people are smart about it,
who gives a **** .

>They know the risks

Considering a common argument is that there is not A SINGLE negative effect of marijuana, I don't think that's a valid point.
User avatar #148 to #147 - buttonddownbarbie (03/02/2012) [-]
You misunderstood the statement.
"They know the risks"
Implying they know they'll feel low, tired, or anxious when 'burning out'
Studies have been held to test the dangers.
Lung ,brain and heart disease have been speculated,
but none ever proven.
User avatar #171 to #148 - oxan (03/02/2012) [-]
Until they're proven wrong, there's always that risk. It's generally accepted that it causes brain damage.

I'd say 'hate' is a bit too harsh,
do you mean to say you dont understand why someone would do something they know is unhealthy and addictive? And you discourage it?
Than yes,
I'd have to agree it doesent make sense.

Yes you are. Being a smoker doesn't define one's personality. You can be a smoker and also be the nicest person in the world. Hating someone for such a small and insignificant reason is pathetic.

I was thinking of using that in my arguement,
Anybody with any trait could be another.

Being a pedophile isn't a small reason. It causes emotional trauma and... you know what? I've decided that you're retarded. Being a pothead isn't comparable to being a pedophile. We've already been over this. We're not going over it again.

No. Damage implies that lasting harm was done. The study you linked argues only for short-term memory impairment, which I'm not denying. Being under the effect of THC makes you forget **** . However the article says nothing about PERMANENT DAMAGE.
In fact, it doesn't even seem to be suggesting that. It only seems to state that marijuana with high concentrations of THC compared to CBD can impair your working memory for the duration of being under it's influence.

Either way, basing an argument on "it can temporarily harm your memory" is pretty lame. "temporary memory impairment = brain damage" makes about as much sense as "slapping a womans ass on an elevator = rape".
#123 to #116 - anonymous (03/02/2012) [-]
Smoking weed doesn't cause serious and immediate harm to others. Neither does smoking cigs. They have recently made it illegal to smoke in most public places, so you hardly have to worry about it. Plus you can always ask someone stop smoking near you. Most people will walk away from you out of respect. Not a single pedophile will stop because a child says no.

"As a medical diagnosis, pedophilia (or paedophilia) is defined as a psychiatric disorder in adults or late adolescents (persons age 16 or older) typically characterized by a primary or exclusive sexual interest in prepubescent children (generally age 13 years or younger, though onset of puberty may vary)."

Incorrect. Being a pedophile by DEFINITION doesn't have to mean acting on it. Just the general attraction. Can you please get some serious information and not just spew things you think you know?

Can you not read? It doesn't say having sex with children. To be a pedophile you have to be attracted to children.

You said "being attracted to children and being a pedophile is different." When i clearly said they aren't. To be a pedophile you must be attracted to children. You don't ever have to act on it, retard.

"illegal" Now there lies your problem. I live in the US. Attleboro MA as a matter of fact. Where i live if you get caught with under an OZ of marijuana you only get a ticket. Yes, weed is about as bad as speeding. How many bodies must you have for it to be a serious offense?

Also, weed isn't illegal everywhere. Guess what is? Murder and rape. *Facepalm*
