Jack Dennis, I did in my youth but too old for that now. The only use I would have for it now would be for medicinal purposes such as glaucoma. I have several friends who claim it helps them. Fortunately, I don't have Glaucoma but it's good to know.
Jack Dennis there are plenty of things that are legal that are far more harmful than marijuana. For example a dumba$$ with a gun on his hip walking into a family restaurant and he gets into an argument with another dumba$$ wearing a gun in the restaurant. Smoking marijuana is ten times less likely to be as harmful as that little scenario and you should be far more afraid of that happening than the so called "harm" caused by marijuana.
Z fister you are not concerned now nor have you EVER been concerned about black on black crime in Chicago. The only reason a wimp a$$ like you keeps bringing up the crime in Chicago is because Barack Obama is from Chicago. If for one minute he sent Eric Holder to Chicago, you would be one of the first loudmouth racists to claim he was paying too much attention to Chicago. If you are so concerned about black on black crime in Chicago take your a$$ to Chicago and use that true VOLUNTEER spirit and go to the Southside where most of the shootings take place and let them know you are the NEW COMMUNITY ORGANIZER. LOL
BTW while you are there be sure and let them know your heros are Sowell, Williams. And Thomas. That ought to go over really well and make you oh so popular. LOL
Alcohol is a drug. It is a drug that can lead to addiction, sickness and even death, yet people drink 24/7/365. Nicotine is also a drug that can lead to addiction, sickness, and even death. People smoke cigarettes 24/7/365. If these two drugs have these proven consequences, yet they are legally consumed, why would marijuana be seen as any worse?
Currently, there are two states that have legalized marijuana, it's just a matter of time before it becomes legal in all 50. As much as it is grown in Tennessee it should already be legal and taxed for the revenue it could bring to the state.
Al and Ki it's obvious from day 1 of this whole miserable mess the police dept in Ferguson mishandled the whole incident. Evidently their specialty was in writing speeding tickets, stopping people of color on the streets, and buying military equipment so they had the big boy toys. They did not know how to investigate a crime scene, how not to handle the body of a shooting victim, how to control a peaceful protest w/o resorting to riot control, and last but certainly not least they did not know when the use of deadly force is appropriate for a situation between themselves and their citizens. I have no doubt as time goes on we will learn more about the totally inept
police dept of Ferguson.
I feel for the people of Ferguson when all the media attention turns someplace slse. The name Michael Brown will be forgotten, the protests will be forgotten and for the Ferguson Police Dept it will be back to the business of writing tickets, stopping people of color whenever the mood strikes them and using deadly force to stop shoplifters. Some will believe justice has been served and for the rest it won't change anything it will be business as usual.
Jack Dennis just so you know it doesn't matter how many times the ACTUAL eyewitnesses come forward and they all tell the same story of how Brown was facing that cop with his hands in the air, they will find a jury outside Ferguson(if the cop is ever indicted and brought to trial) with at least one or two a$$holes who will NOT vote to convict him and he will walk of that I have no doubt.
Z fister just so you know I will continue to call them uncle toms and there's not a damn thing you write that will stop me. You are a dumba$$ and you prove it everyday you post here. I sometimes wonder if you are one of those homeschooled people. You know the kind not homeschooled by choice but because you were too stupid to be schooled any other way.
If Michael Brown was smoking pot that day it's more likely he would not have been the aggressor. Pot smokers are usually less likely to become agitated unless the pot has been laced with something. When people talk about "mellowing" out it is usually with pot as opposed to alcohol. So, unless it can be proven Brown was smoking pot laced with something that would cause him to be aggressive it's unlikely he would have bum rushed a cop who was firing bullets at him.
To be honest, the ONLY person who would have had cause to fear bodily harm from Brown would have been the clerk in the store where he stole the cigars. Based on what was seen on the store cameras when Brown grabbed the store clerk and practically lifted him off the ground,if the clerk had shot Brown at that point NO ONE could have argued that it would not have been self defense. Where that cop went wrong was chasing Brown, then when Brown stopped and faced him with his hands in the air, the cop shot him multiple times.
Z fister you are the personification of ignorance. As I have stated before you must have me confused with someone who gives a blip about what a dumba$$ like you has to say or write. The day you wrote Obamacare was worse than the Vietnam War, I wrote you off just as I wrote them off as Uncle Toms.
Z fister I didn't write that to prove I'm not a racist, I wrote it to prove you don't have an effing clue about the Black Community. I dare you to find one sentence that I wrote stating Clarence Thomas is an uncle Tom because he married a white woman. My classification of Clarence Thomas as an uncle Tom has Jacksh!t to do with who he is married to. I wouldn't care if he was married to Queen Elizabeth. He is still an Uncle Tom. Because of his JUDICIAL Opinions, and other actions THROUGHOUT his career. None of which have to do with the person he married.
You seem to be projecting when you write I dislike Thomas because of who he is married to. Go take a look in the mirror and you will see the person who evidently objects the most. One would think a dumba$$ like you would get tired of making yourself look the fool day in and day out but evidently you don't or you wouldn't keep sitting at your mama's computer doing it. LOL
