  1. I hear what you are saying but I think you are again trying to clamp down on the freedom of others out of worry for someone's safety and using some spurious reasoning to justify it. The chances of the scenarios you describe are remote possibilities and remember, even if it were to happen no lasting physical harm is likely. Perhaps a good lesson though, don't just eat something people hand you unless you trust them?
  2. Yes, "god given". The Constitution doesn't grant you any rights. It acknowledges that you have those rights.
  3. Wow, you have been brainwashed. "drugs alcohol driving are all privileges or luxuries"??? Really? Why because the government tells you so? This line of thinking flies in the face of the intent behind The Constitution. The framers argued over whether a B0R should even be included as any powers not specifically granted to the fed government in The Constitution were kept by the people. Unfortunately, our govt at all levels has become [been] so bloated, so overbearing, so anti-liberty that people take it for granted that this is the way things were meant to be. Wrong! Individual Liberty was the intent!
  4. How do people judge when they have had enough alcohol? Some do a good job, some don't. Only difference is you can literally drink yourself to death. You would need to ingest about 1500lbs of MJ to actually kill yourself. What happens when innocent kids go to the neighbors house these days? Pot candy/sweets have existed for decades and currently they are more likely in the hands of the irresponsible because legislation prevents many responsible people from being able to use. That being said, why don't we already hear about all these cases of kids getting into the neighbors pot stash? My guess is because pot is expensive and people don't leave it laying around for others to haphazardly ingest.
  5. Wow, hell of an argument. I hope you are being purposefully obtuse.
  6. NYC was like this once with homeless people [getting that way again], weed was never legal here. I don't disagree that impaired driving is an issue. I wholeheartedly agree with your statements on cell phones. I see it every day on 287 and it drives me nuts. I have to imagine it is responsible for a decent percentage of the traffic also. That being said, look at the logic of what you are saying. Basically, you are saying because some people will act irresponsibly we should punish all the responsible people by limiting their rights, ie making them criminals. That is literally what the ANTIs try to do to gun owners.
  7. Yes yes, I must be a pothead because I advocate for individual rights and liberty. Wow, that's an intelligent argument you make. I hope you don't consider yourself a conservative. A true conservative wouldn't advocate for nanny state government bs like the current drug laws. Let us not forget we have been waging the war on drugs for nearly 30 years and we have what to show for it? A quadrupling of overdose related deaths in the past 20 years. Nevermind, seems like we have it all under control, lets just keep doing the same thing we've been doing.
  8. Every day on the news I hear about a child dying of gun violence. It is tragic but that doesn't have me cheering for the government to take my 2a rights away. The Framers believed in individual liberty, the current drug laws are exactly the type of heavy handed government control the Framers despised.
  9. Bwaahahaha. This is such bullsh*t, I mean literally right out of Reefer Madness.
  10. There are places that have decriminalized all drugs and that seems to work, especially when they build up the social services around it. The U.S. could easily do it and make companies like Purdue Pharma pay for it, since they did the same thing the tobacco companies did, lied about the dangers of their product. Research seems to suggest removing the stigma does a lot of good in getting people off of the junk.
  11. I just don't understand this thinking, especially on this site. Unless I misunderstood and you are saying you don't want it to pass because it is BS, not really legalizing anything. It is simply commoditization.
  12. There are a bunch of robotics videos online that show some really impressive tech, like Boston Dynamics (iirc). This robot is the first I've seen looking to replace construction labor. Pretty impressive. https://www.aist.go.jp/aist_e/list/latest_research/2018/20181116/en20181116.html
  13. Waffling, a vendor invited me but I don't think I'm going to go, maybe if it was on a Friday and I didn't have to get up at 4am the next day. I've seen his show before, it was awesome but his voice ain't what it used to be. The last time I saw him it was during the holidays and he was great, did a bunch of Christmas songs, etc. He really gets into it.
  14. If you really want to be disturbed by the goings on at Alphabet/Google research what they are doing in the education sector.
