    Sure it will.

    Drunk (and high) people can still walk in front of self-driving cars...

    Typical.
    I DID address your argument. You claimed, "But one inhale on a joint of weed is enough to produce a high." And I told you that isn't true, plain and simple. Got any more arguments?

    Ah, I see your problem. You are equating drunkenness with a marijuana high. Those two things are nowhere near the same. You are speaking out of ignorance here. Come back after you've had some personal experience or made some personal observations with cannabis and then you'll know what you're talking about.

    As Dr. Rogers explained....There are always consequences for your choices. Always. If you choose to step off the roof of a ten-story building, you are not then free to choose the consequence of your choice. Your choice has chosen for you.
    The state — whatever its particular forms — always expresses itself as a collective form of property ownership. All political systems are socialistic, in that they are premised upon the subservience of individual interests to collective authority. Communism, fascism, lesser forms of state socialism, and welfarism, are all premised upon the state’s usurpation of privately-owned property. Whether one chooses to be aligned with the political "Left," "Right," or "Middle," comes down to nothing more than a preference for a particular franchise of state socialism.

    And I responded that anecdotal evidence is not sufficient.

    Perhaps you had some weed that doesn't give a high.

    It does exist..

    Not with just one puff from a joint.

    Uh, no, I did not specify what drug the high is caused by.

    I don't need to.

    I have plenty of studies and research papers that show that pot is dangerous to those who use it as a recreational drug.

    Being drunk and being high are BOTH being intoxicated.

    Both make one a liability to oneself and to those around him.

    Which is why BOTH should be illegal.

    There is such a thing as pot that doesn't produce a high. It's possible you had one of those joints.

    Which, again, is why anecdotal evidence is not sufficient for an argument.

    it was for some poeple, back in the day when thc levels were much lower than they are now

    and for others, a whole joint had no effect

    in general, the more marijuana exposure, the lower your reaction times, the greater the diminishment of judgement and the greater frequency and magnitude of poor choices

    Nope. I've had stuff from Oregon and Colorado with up to 25%+ THC. And just one puff isn't going to get you "high." Now if you're talking about joints that have been infused with concentrates, that is another matter. But I haven't messed with that stuff.

    A tricky thing about illegal weed is you never know what it might be laced with. This was especially true back in the day.

    Yeah, too many idiot lawyers which is why it's hard to count on the law.

    The remedy, of course, is to grow it yourself or trust your source.

    I wonder how we would do that, and what "drugs" are we talking about having a war against?

    It's looking like big Pharma is responsible for a whole lot of deaths.
