People do drugs, legal and not. People abuse drugs, legal and not. Most people are alcoholics based on the principle that when they drink they get a buzz or get drunk. people cheat on their spouses. People abuse children. These are things that happen in our society, on all levels. It's not just lower class, or lower middle, or middle upper, or upper. It's EVERYWHERE! I don't know why people think these things can be eradicated. For whatever reason our society likes to say certain things are bad but on different levels and attach labels. Like using drugs and abusing drugs. Why do we have to classify everything, to make us feel better about ourselves? Does it really matter? Bottom line, you are using drugs. Just because some pharmaceutical company makes it, and a doctor gave you a little slip of paper to go get it, and the government makes money off of it, that makes it ok.
I was prescribed Valume and Oxycontin in high doses for an ankle injury. Oxycontin is an opiate based drug, highly addictive (hillbilly heroin) that has been linked to god knows how many deaths. It would make me sick and nauseous, throw up. Funny thing is, I could smoke herbs and feel just as good and be able to sleep with no side effects. Now some people would understand and accept me taking the Oxy because it was precribed, but when they heard I was smoking instead to get the same effects they thought that was wrong. Tell me that isn't messed up!
Some people in this country need to pull their heads out of their a$$es and help get us out of this recession by realizing it is a loosing battle that we are spending billions of dollars a year on to only make growers and smugglers find a new way of doing what they do best, not to mention over running our (in)justice system and prisions. Put them all out of business, legalize it, grow it, tax it, sell it, make billions instead of spend billions. Then there will be no market for the smugglers and dealers, and the money that is spent on this illeagal crop by the citizens of this country will stay in the US. Anything you outlaw, the outlaws will still have. People don't realize that I guess. Prohibition worked the same way, then the government saw how much demand there was, and how much money they could make on it, they finally got wise. I don't know why they are still dragging their feet on this issue.
">kindofabuzz said:yeah like I said I can't beleive this is even an issue. this is 2009, people smoke weed! I don't look down on him because of it. I used to work at a head shop, you wouldn't believe at the lawyers and judges and cops that would come in there to buy pipes and etc. even meth pipes.
So this is all kinda like if you shoot and kill someone here in America it is "Murder" but if you put on a Uniform and go overseas it is "Protecting America". Or if someone comes here from overseas and blows up a building they are "Terrorists" but if someone from here blows up a building they are a "Serial killer". Or Like a recent situation.......If I don't pay my taxes I am a "Criminal" but if Tom Dashel doesn't pay his taxes we call him a "Senator"!!!!!!! I could go on for days with the double standards in this country.
So he smoked a little pot? Geraldo said it best on Fox news yesterday " I only know of one person who hasn't experimented with pot at some point in there life and his name is Bill O' Riley!"/body>
