if you could NOT use the following two arguments...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
against marijuana, what would be your reason for being anti?

1) it's illegal (because it was legal for far longer than it's been illegal)
2) it's a gateway drug (because that's simply not true)


^remember, you can't use those two arguments. Any other "legit" reasons?

This...  I've known several people who were in serious accidents because they were high.

im on the fence with it. i've seen people that let pot control their lifestyle, and their world revolves around it to the point they abandon their kid. on the other hand, i have also seen very successful families partake in it on occasion.

but alcohol does the same, and it is legal except while driving. they could do the same with pot

It will just add one more group of fucked up drivers to the road. A lot of people say that pot smokers cause fewer wrecks than people who drink, well, I don't think drinking should be legal either. I don't care if legalizing pot would only increase dui's by one per year- that's one too many

 Because I don't think it's healthy for a person to rely on any drug to calm or relax them or help them have a ''good time''.  If you want to relax listen to some music, take a bath, meditate, exercise, etc. instead of getting high.

 Exactly!

It stinks! Literally Lol i do not like the smell of it so that's why i don't do it. I don't care that it is illegal or that its a gateway drug my only issue with it is the scent.

I'm more ok with weed than I am alcohol. Who did you ever see get high and then decide to beat the crap out of someone? Mostly, you would just lay on the couch and eat Cheetos, hurting no one but yourself. That being said, I'm a control freak and I don't like the feeling anything like that gives me. My husband smoked before we had kids, but I thought it made him annoying, so I banned it from our house!

How do you feel about alcohol?

I feel the same way.  I think it's ok to have a beer with your burger or glass of wine or whatever but if you're doing it to help you relax or feel a buzz then I don't think it's ok.  I feel the same way about food.
