I am not trying to avoid the issue. Malkin’s article glorifies marijuana use.
You pointed out that it was illegal until the 1920’s and I pointed out that America was a far different country back then. If you got stoned out of your mind and couldn’t support yourself, you basically starved or got killed trying to steal.
Now, if you can’t work because you are stoned on pot, you get to live off the hardworking taxpayers.
Also, there were actually Christian values in America back then so a majority of people would avoid idiotic, immoral behavior like pot smoking, whether it was legal or not.
Keep in mind that the rise of the marijuana culture and the decline of America occurred at the very, same time. The late 1960s.
Pot is a tool of the Marxist/Statist enemies of America to enslave the American people.
"Things were different then" is the stock answer the living document revisionists use to destroy the original intent of the Constitution.
They're using pot to coerce you into joining them, and you're falling for it.
LOL! Reporting the facts is not 'glorification'.
But you've already shown in post #20
She is essentially calling pot a wonder drug that makes Mom-in-laws cancer an almost pleasurable experience
that you can't differentiate between taking a normal experience and making it pleasurable and taking a miserable experience and making it tolerable.
The deficit in your perceptive skills is no excuse for slanderous remarks against someone who has done nothing to deserve your bile.
“Pot is a tool of the Marxist/Statist enemies of America to enslave the American people.”
Those poor people are smoking COMMUNISM. I’m so sorry to learn that so many of the founders were marxists. It puts that whole commie, leftist 10 Amendment in a different light. Reefer madness was true! /s
Pot has been around for thousands of years as a medicine. No civilization ever fell because of it. Like it or not, the very AMERICAN 10th Amendment reserves authority over its legalisation for the States. If we can rely on individuals to own guns, take perscription meds, drive cars, drink alcohol, et. all, we can handle pot.
