I'm honestly getting tired of people like you complaining about this.. it's not like you need the **** .
Get over it.
#131 to #130 - thehans (08/15/2011) [-]
no one NEEDS beer, we dont NEED cars either you have legs, we dont NEED tv we have books. we are complaining because it is a gross injustice illegalizing something and throwing people in jail for something so victimless. you just dont understand because you have been brainwashed by mainstream anti-drug talk.

I don't care if it were made legal or if it stayed illegal. I'm just tired of people complaining and trying so ******* hard to get something they don't need in any way!

You say I don't understand... the reason I don't "understand" is because I DON'T GIVE A **** about smoking or drinking. I'm just sick of people like you bitching about this **** .

>Legalize marijuana
>Excess sin tax placed on marijuana
>Only small amounts legal
>Heavy regulation on concentration of THC, leading to less potent weed, need to smoke more to get high
>Price of marijuana skyrockets

Is that REALLY what you want?

they cant just take out THC, they would have to genetically engineer new strains of plants to be less potent. and its not like they regulate potency of alcohol they do sell hard liquor you know...

also you can grow your own **** , its not hard
#153 to #148 - MidgetInABikini (08/15/2011) [-]
Well, actually, they wouldn't take out THC, they would just use less potent plants. It's not that they have to genetically engineer it, they would just bring it back down to woodstock era potency, which is almost 20X lower than some of the stuff today.
And the potency of alcohol is unregulated for some strange reason, most likely because everyone is irrationally comfortable with alcohol as opposed to marijuana. It would be different for legalized marijuana because even if it was legalized, it would still have much greater opposition than alcohol.
Tl;dr, weed can already be less potent, alcohol is different.

there is no goddamn way weed was 20X less potent in the 60's than today. cannabis has been in use since around 2500 b.c. so its not like it just suddenly got more potent in 40 years. granted we are growing it much better today and it might be slightly more potent (like 2x, maybe) but they arent going to select the worst weed to grow when its legal. i grew some bag seeds from some middies i bought and it gets you SOOOO high, imagine if i had some proper seeds.

Forgive me, I made a typing error. I meant 10 times as much, not 20 (the buttons are so close together). In 1970, the average THC content of a marijuana plant was 1.5 percent, not very much at all. The THC content of today's sinsemilla variety ranges from 8 percent to 20 percent. Many plants can go even higher, such as 25%.
Although I do acknowledge that you are an avid smoker, I'm starting to doubt your knowledge on the science and statistics behind Cannabis.
And marijuana HAS become more potent in 40 years due to genetic engineering.

Damn, i think you just mad a fact just now

props to you

you cannot reason with these people
#143 to #140 - MidgetInABikini (08/15/2011) [-]
Plus, legalizing will essentially mass produce ******** stoners. And that's the last thing we want.
#144 to #143 - weswelker (08/15/2011) [-]
that would suck, weed really isnt that important, neither is alcohol, should get rid of both in my opinion.
#147 to #144 - MidgetInABikini (08/15/2011) [-]
Don't get rid of alcohol; if we learned anything from prohibition, it's that people are going to drink anyways, and instead of businesses and the government profiting from alcohol, bootleggers and mobsters will.
User avatar #168 to #147 - dssn (08/15/2011) [-]
Thats the same ******* that that is going with Weed? Were going against the law just like the bootleggers did. So why would we keep a poison that makes us unstable and reckless, while weed just calms you down and helps your senses. People usually think that weed will dumb you up, it really doesnt. Studies show that weed only numbs your brain cells, and they come back within a couple of days. It doesnt hurt your lungs, actually it helps your lungs. There are a little bit of irratants in weed, which is why people cough but not enough to burn your lungs, it actually helps you. And dont say that it will mass produce ******** stoners, because without " ******** stoners" you wouldnt have half the ******* music, tv, and games you have today. Watch which part of the culture you are insulting.. there are already a mass of stoners out there. I think that it will only SLIGHTLY increase if it was legal. Alot of people do illegal things, just because its legal wouldnt make many many more stoners.

Although I DO appreciate some stoner culture (Sublime, Bob Marley, Pineapple Express, etc.) , the vast majority of stoners are just a cesspool of stupidity over a drug that shouldn't be taken so seriously. And marijuana does have negative effects on the development of teenage brains, although generally safe for all others. Oh, and the positive effects of medical marijuana are greatly exaggerated, with the exception of being a painkiller for your nervous system. People who obsess about weed are essentially throwing their lives away; although cannabis doesn't have as many negative side effects as alcohol, they both produce pathetic degenerates who contribute nothing to society because they are sucked into the stoner craze.
The difference between prohibition and the institution of illegalized marijuana is that most of the crime for cannabis is south of the border, so it's not as much of a problem, although it is for other countries such as Mexico and Columbia.

no, i mean like, the world itself would be better without both, but in reality, we shouldnt get rid of alcohol, if anyone knows there history.
User avatar #161 to #151 - thehans (08/15/2011) [-]
your right the world would be better without drugs and guns and violence then we could all live happily in the gumdrop forests and frolic in the chocolate rivers and live happily ever after.

you cant just wish the bad things in the world away

^this guy gets it. we are still in the prohibition of weed and gangs control the market to make money

legalize cannabis
gangs dont make money
#156 to #150 - MidgetInABikini (08/15/2011) [-]
Yeah, I agree, we should legalize it, although I personally don't care for smoking.
It would KILL the gangs in Mexico, as the greater deal of their profit comes from the production of Cannabis. Also, it would make our government upwards of 50 billion dollars a year. This is because the street price of marijuana is high at the moment due to its black market status. If legalized, the price of production would plummet. The goverment, most likely, would keep it at $8.60 per unit (.5 g) and keep all of the difference. Not to mention the sin (excess) tax that they would place on it.
Conclusion: Yes, haha.

alcohol is legal for one thing, and one thing only, and it was because of Prohibition... look it up.
