An "oldie," but

a good one.

Cannabis > Pharmaceuticals
Industrial Hemp > Foreign Oil

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

If you don't apply the same to all addictive things

Alcohol, the internet, video games, sex, etc ... then you have absolutely no place to speak. I know plenty of people who've ruined their lives with all of the above yet they are still legal.

Also, who the hell are you to tell me what I can and can't do with my life and how I should live it? If I choose to destroy myself that is on my head and is none of your business so long as I don't cause you harm.

Complete and total nonsense.

I bet I you swallow your moral code in tablet form...Yes?

I have two words for you.....

Michael Phelps

In a free society

You Judge your own life, not others. What is a waste and what is a good existance is completely a matter of opinion.

To think that you have a right to intervene, by force, based on the judgement of a victimless action shows you are a tyrant.

I grew up with a bunch of people

who didn't smoke pot. They have done nothing with their lives. Deadbeats. They are ruining society. We should make smoking pot mandatory.

Recent research has shown

Recent research has shown Cannabis may create brain cells. You should consider trying it.

Get this troll out of here

You know nothing and you are spewing bull. You are CLEARLY not a libertarian or anything somewhat resembling that because YOU JUST DONT GET IT.
Oh and btw...it's not a hat, so get your head out of your ass.

you must be related to me

lmfao that was good

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.

I find a good

comment to work into conversations every day here at the DP. Thank you LdyLbrty for today's! It's not a hat... priceless!

100% bullshit, how can you

100% bullshit, how can you even type sitting in crap head deep.

Ron Paul 2016

Ruined Society?

It's apparent you have never heard of the effects of one of the most evil of all drugs....ALCOHOL. Oh, but alcohol is socially accepted and legal. Do yourself a favor and really research the statistics about how many lives it has taken or "ruined" in comparison.

Cannabis with THC is 180 degrees from that...

All Rights Reserved, c 1791
RP 2012 and beyond....

Don't forget the

important role alcoholic beverages play in the Christian religion. (supposedly the religion our country was founded on....not) lol I still think its funny that its ok for minors to drink when their at church. Blood of yadayada blah blah blah...

Pot calling the kettle (pun intended)

Watch what I do here.

Coffee is so addictive. I know people that can't even get out of bed without having coffee. Their hands will tremble until they get the drug. I know people that started drinking coffee at a young age and they have gone nowhere with their lives. Do you even know how damaging coffee is to your heart?

Please show mercy and kindness for the indoctrinated


Just think of how many other areas of this persons life that are wrongfully hindered. When people hold blind beliefs and proclaim them without reference to fact, it is nothing more than opinion. Maybe this person never learned about how Anslinger and friends lied to millions of people through their media. Sooner or later the truth about cannabis must be faced because the facts are clear.


marijuana is not physically addictive, it is habit forming.

Living beyond your means is habit forming, as is allowing government to coddle you cradle to grave.

I have three pot-smoking college friends

They smoked themselves silly, but one became a CPA, one a doctor, and one a dentist. I didn't smoke and I didn't achieve as they did.

Based on your logic, perhaps smoking pot should be mandatory, since the correlation of pot smoking to success seems to be pretty clear.

I replaced Marijuana with...

"Sugar" is an addictive drug and can be abused. I had friends who ate it growing up and they have done nothing with their lives. It has became their life. Deadbeats.

- Ronald Mcdonald

That is such a juvenile

That is such a juvenile argument. The same could be said for alcohol or cigarrettes. The issue here is that YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO DICTATE WHAT PEOPLE DO! NONE!. That being said I dont support drug use of any kind...cigarrettes, alcohol, marijuana...any of it, but the most important gift god ever gave man is free will...I have no right to interfere with that decision and neither do you. I had plenty of opportunities to drink and use drugs growing up but I never did...not once. I excersized my free will to avoid it. I do occasionally have a drink of some sort to be social these days but to this day I have never been drunk and never will be. If you dont want your kids abusing whatever substance its up to you educate them...but you will NEVER be able to force YOUR will on them. Its a choice everyone must make for themselves. I dont even have a problem with those who choose to partake as long as does not harm me or those I love. Driving under the influence(drugs or alcohol) is a crime with a victim. Smoking a joint and NOT driving is not.


But Michael Phelps, the all time gold medal collector of the Olympics, might disagree. Sorry non-thinking parents.

Leagalized bs

I am free, and I do not leagalize anything slaves need your leagaling not free people. No authority for any law over me.


Marijuana, wont touch the stuff my self.

Marijuana, wont touch the stuff my self.

Who has the authority to better judge what you can put in your body than your self?

I see its potential to cripple western civilization.
I also see legalizing every thing as the only way to liberty.

So I agree don't legalize Marijuana, LEGALIZE EVERY SUBSTANCE!

Or better yet recognize government lacks the authority to make the consumption of any thing illegal to begin with.
Only then are you free.

The crime is black children growing up without fathers. Prohibition has always been racism.

Steve Jobs - Deadbeat pot

Steve Jobs - Deadbeat pot smoker, you should boycott apple stoner products.

Carl Sagan - Just because your in MENSA doesnt make you smart, nor does all the work you did for NASA.

Stephen Jay Gould - He smoked and still taught at Harvard and also contributed to the theory of punctuated equilibrium , maybe those graduates should ask for their money back for having a deadbeat teacher?

Francis Crick - The guy who won the nobel peace prize for discovering the double helix structure of DNA, that must be a hallucination if it was discovered by someone who smokes right?

Margaret Mead - Who would cause many an elder ladies to slap you if you called her a deadbeat or worthless in front of them.

If that doesnt make you feel stupid. look up these names also..

Andrew Weil, Kary Mullis, Oliver Sacks, Richard Feynman, Sergey Brin, Sir Richard Branson, Rick Steves, Aaron Sorki, Ted Turner, Montel Williams, Stephen King, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mark Emery, Jack Herer.. I could go on, and then move on to music.. Your statement is ridiculous. Create an equal list of alcoholics or people who abuse prescription drugs, i dare you... Did someone who smokes weed steal your girlfriend or take your daughters virginity? You are crazy.


Ryno.t has observed that a handful of people who have smoked pot have done nothing with their lives. Based on this he has concluded that the government has the right to put people in cages over certain behavior. After all, we all need to recognize that citizens owe their lives to the state and, thus, if they are "unproductive" (in Ryno.t's estimation) then the state has a legitimate right to use force against them.

Instead of criticizing Ryno.t, we should feel grateful that he hasn't made an executive decision to jail the unproductive, regardless of what they've done in their lives.

Ryno.t - a true defender of liberty!

did weed make them lazy deadbeats?

or did they smoke weed because they're lazy deadbeats? i vote the latter. i know many a pothead who lead happy, productive lives.

the easiest way to get something done isnt to change the behavior; its to change the meaning of existing behavior. like a cut isnt a cut, torture isnt torture, its enhanced interrogation. war isnt war, its kinetic military action. declaring war now appare

You can't be a libertarian and want to control your neighbor at the same time. Your argument is inconsistent with reality and therefore false? Here in Colorado their are thousands of pot heads that are making a good healthy living in the pot industry. Just like their are thousands of pharmacists that are making a good living buying, selling and using real drugs that kill and harm people as a matter of process. So why did you not make a post like: "Pharmaceutical Drugs should be illegal"? At least then you would be consistent in thought and principle. After all, if your looking out for their well being? Why focus and harp on a plant that has never killed anyone?

Have you ever considered that your friends are acting worthless and smoke weed for the same reason? Like maybe they have not found a place and purpose in this world? Maybe they dislike this modern mary go round and only looking for a way to deal with it? Maybe it has something to do with big strong young men no longer have a physical lifestyle that was inherited by evolution? Maybee these users are the thinking type and not the doing type?

Clearly your the jumental fool! Not your friends.

When he gets to -420

I'll load the first bowl.

We'll have to revive

your bet ;)

at -420, the blunt will be rolled.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
