    Emancipation

    yeah, you dont need cable, nor a cell phone, the smoking wont work either, and while you're at it, I am sure that the marijuana costs money too, I forget if you said you have ceased smoking it since then, but if not, do, for it = cost money. Also, join a union, and do some skilled labor, go through apprentice school, etc. YOu get paid so much more, esp if you are not going to college. If you do not go to college, go to vocational school, and then a trade school. Construction Laborers (the lowest on the totem pole) get paid upwards of $12 an hour in ohio. Unio jobs will also provide benefits when you can work more, and are over 18.

    Emancipation

    I'm in college right now, and I am paying for everything half of the time, which costs me about $3000-$3500, as my parents pay for tuition the other semester of the year. I live on Ramen and mac and cheese. THen again, I also have a meal plan, but I rarely use it, and I still go out. I work at my 20 hour a week work study job, and make $250 a week. Not that bad. I would suggest, to you, to either get a better job that pays more,or work more hours, obviously. Other than that, looks like you might need to give up the cigs, and not eat out too often. Drive only when you need to. Maybe buy a gun and rob a bank?

    Drugs are like, SOO EVIL!! or are they?

    here's the deal: WHen you legalize drugs, use, INITIALLY, increases. Unless you then say how much of a drug you can have, or how much you can take, and legislate the moderation, then there will be increased abuse, as those who find it harder to obtain drugs, or those few who are dissuaded by the law, will be able to get more, and do so without fearing repercusions. This means more abuse. Also, use would mean that the "stupid people", or "morons" would use it still, possibly more people who are stupid will use them more, and more people die from the actions of the "morons", which would not have been a factor had the drugs not been around in the first place. I will win this. Also, by y'all's logic, that there are alternate causalities to the effects that drugs have, war kills people too, does that mean that we do not try to stop the day to day murders, becuase people could die in a war, or in an auto accident, or in an accident at home? That is the most ignorant argument which I have ever heard. If this is but one step, then it is one step, but a step which must be taken, not taken away. Hyena, people are telling me that my friend died because the driver was a moron, not in any way the fault of the drugs. And I can vouch for the driver, that he made wise decisions when not on weed. Although, you would have to take that at face value, as you would not know, obviously. Uh, first, if it were not profitable to deal, then the drugs would not be dealt. Ok. I think that Gas is legal, and profitable, as is anything that is sold. Companies sell things. Uh, I don't know what you mean here, I guess? Second, sure, the kids wouldnt have to go to community college when, with financial aid, they are Harvard stuff (seriously). But that doesn't mean that the people who sell from other nations don't keep their companies and dealings, and they don't continue to kill their enemies. These "businesses" are not as regulated as they are here in the US, and with free trade, the other nations that produce the drugs cheaper would receive the business. So, we continue to support foreign terrorism and murder, cool. If that man did that, and that somehow debilitated two other people, his best friends, and then he had to go to jail for 6 months to a year, and then he couldn't go to college, dropped out of high school, and felt total remorse, and understood that what he did was bad, then yes. I would have sympathy, but I cannot make you have it. First, we can educate without the legalization. Second, the law is to protect other people, see the example of my friend. Third, you don't have the right to drugs, they are mearly a privelage, and illegal one, that some people have, and that means that neither should you have the legislated right to smoke. That kind of trivializes other rights, like equal protection, due process, etc, doesn't it? Well, AndrewB, I hope that you can find humor in the deaths of your friends and family. Becuase they will die, and I bet you that you will not appreciate someone laughing at that, saying "THis made me laugh for real. Very entertaining." I also don't find the Darwin Awards humorous, but maybe you do. hmm. If it is legalized, these people are not criminals, until they kill people, or do other things. And they will still be the source, see the conceeded Free Trade argument, and also the fact that they will still be the source of some, if not all, of the production. THey just don't go away. ANd the murders they commit are not always drug related, sometimes they support terrorism, as in Afghanistan, and also in Columbia. The deaths of civilians, and enemies, and other dealers, and those who attack them through the press. Not in my name will this be supported. ALso, for more reasons and proofs as to why drugs can be/are bad, I point you to the military. They have, before '96, and sometimes afterwardsm given amphetamines to their pilates on long missions, and even combat missions. THis has, as some studies have found, caused multiple friendly fire incedents, esp. in some battles in Kosovo, Bosnia, and some in the First Gulf War. This is an example of Drugs, not being abused, causing negative consequences. Also, when you are high, you are much easier to appease and control. Just sayin', look out for good old BB. Also, in Papua new Guinea, the resurgence of drug trafficing has lead to an increase in armed violence and murder in that country. Think of the other people that you are affecting. Here is my source for this one: http://www.geodrugs.net/mini-lettres/AEGD%20GB%208.pdf From that same site, There is proof that Drug Cartels are, in fact, setting up their own governments around the world, and reeking havoc on those which oppose them. They are also preventing the punishment of their constituents for both drug, and non-drug offenses. Also from the same site, Drug Cartels in Mexico are gaining power, and have been/are being run by the militaries of these nations, the same militaries which oppress their citizens, and force many to live in landfills, etc. Also, from a different issue, the Taliban did receive funds from drug trades out of Afghanistan. They attempted to close many different farms and traders which were not friendly to them, however, they left some open to receive funds, and try to soften their image with the UN. This site is: http://www.geodrugs.net/mini-lettres/AEGD6GB.pdf From that same issue: Weed is funding cultural genocides and political murders in Npal by funding the new Maoist revolution, and various other companies that run out of China. This is destroying the local culture, and people. Also, from a different site: The drug sales in Burma were funding militarism and furthering of oppression of individuals. It was the militaries largest income. Here is this site: http://www.geodrugs.net/mini-lettres/AEGD2GB.pdf Another question that I have is what about prescription drugs? SHould you need a prescription to get them? ANd to this I say yes. It is VERY easy to overdose on morphine, percocet, etc. I have examples of this from my summer as an intern at a law firm, where the doctors at a hospital gave a lethal overdose to a patient without knowing. The chart is a red-flag. But still, if trained people screw up, why wouldn't you? That is all for now, more later, unless I am banned again for some reason.

    Drugs are like, SOO EVIL!! or are they?

    Ok, the argument posed here is whether drugs are good, or bad, and I can show you that some drugs are VERY bad. And when you legalize drugs, will you also legislate moderation? By the way, my friend died becuase the driver was high, as was everyone else in the car. And please don't call the driver a moron, he is now a parapalegic, and killed one of his friends, he has suffered enough, and, guess what, doesn't do drugs anymore. He had a prison term, as well. And I hope that you do not propose free trade, as well, as the frugs would still be developed where they are currently, and the money still goes to drug cartels and murders. Granted, not all kill. and look at it this way: PCP, Weed, and Cocaine are drugs; drugs can cause negative impacts (this is granted by you); therefore drugs can be/are bad. And don't tell me how my friend died.

    and for a double post, I would like to point out that MDMA has been proven to, in large quantities, cause brain damage, death, and other side effects to the high. Also, legalizing the date rape drug, or other ones, have, emperically, lead to increased use in other countries, with Amsterdam being the exception. And more Date rape can not be defended as good. Also, have any of you seen the effects of the addiction to the drug? did you watch the news episode, it tore a family apart. But whatever, go have your fun, and come back when you are an adult.

    Drugs are like, SOO EVIL!! or are they?

    Here is the deal: lay off of Baron Slayer. First, Weed has negative effects on one's ability to procreate, as scientific studies have shown a correlation between weed smoking and impotence of various sorts. SO next time you start tokin', remember little you. Second, Why do you think that the law was passed in the first place? I would argue that in most circumstances, including this one, law is in the right. Look at the history of these illegal drugs comming into the US. With the exception of weed, other things like cocaine and opium, etc, come from other countries and are sold by large "drug lords". If you have never lived in Columbia, or experienced the effects of these people on the local populations, including murders, and battles with the governments, etc, then I suggest that you speak to the citizens of those nations, and explain to them why your high is more important than their lives. Just as you believe that Third, My friend in high school died due to a combination of rain, and weed. He went to a party right after school, and they were all blazing in the car, and when it began to rain, they went passed a stop sign, hit another car, and one of them died, the other two were in critical condition, one is now a parapalegic, and the other has now dropped out of school. Real fun. Fourth, let's not forget the people that went to my high school that were convicted of felonies, and cannot get financial aid for college now, and did not go, or went, one of them, to the local community college. Why? becuase they were in possession of a large quantity, and were caught selling. Does this mean that it should be legalized, no. Fifth, the discussion here is not whether legalization is good, its whether drugs, in general, are good or bad. Sixth, lets look at the current death of the large person in Cincinnati over this past week, beaten by cops to death: Hamilton County Coroner Carl Parrott said Nathaniel Jones, 41, suffered from an enlarged heart, obesity and had intoxicating levels of cocaine, PCP and methanol in his blood. TELL ME THAT HIS FIGHTING THE COPS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH THE DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM. Also, Chris Farley, and other people have died becuase of overuse, and abuse, so drugs can be bad. But you are not as funny as Chris Farley, so smoke away, I guess. Seventh, I do not disagree that some medicinal uses of drugs are fine, but those are prescribed by doctors, and for health issues. You just trying to have a good time belittles these people, and their afflictions. Eighth, I have come to the conclusion that reason and rationality have no place on this site, so you will disregard what is writen no matter what is writen. By the way, I am not Baron, there is more than one person in Ohio, and I can spell correctly and argue. This is yet another example of your all's lack of intellegence. Maybe you could see this if you stopped smoking the pot. Lay off the Hash for a while, too.
