If Pot was legal, Heath Ledger would be alive

Not much to say about this. I support the legalization of crack and highly purified opium products as well, but it's really inexcusable that marijuana is illegal. There are lots of sick people and dumbass stoners who could benefit from legalization; the legal system would shrivel a bit and be a bit less corrupt; secondary crime would decrease; border control would be slightly improved; an important industry would come back to our dying economy. Pobresita.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Southern Baptists were responsible for the ban on narcotics, which makes me wonder if I should switch over to Deism. The whole pro-slavery thing was embarrassing too. Maybe back East the churches are more about prudery and laws and such.

Nearly three-quarters-of-a-century after it was made illegal; half-a-century after it was proven to be practically harmless - why is it still a crime to possess and smoke marijuana?

Here is a list of ten famous people who died as a result of nicotine abuse:

Humphrey Bogart
Edward R. Murrow
Nat King Cole
George Harrison
John Huston
Noel Coward
Betty Grable
Walt Disney
Gary Cooper
Peter Jennings

Here is another list. Ten famous people who died from alcoholism:

Tennessee Williams
Jack Kerouac
Truman Capote
Lorenz Hart
Veronica Lake
Bix Beiderbecke
Montgomery Clift
Dylan Thomas
John Barrymore
Errol Flynn

Now I'm going to ask you to name for me one celebrity who has died from too much grass.

Go on, I'm waiting.....

You couldn't do it, could you? No, neither could I. Not only have I never heard of anyone dying in that matter, I am not aware of it happening in all recorded human history! Why, in 2010, are we still having this stupid conversation?

Is it a "gateway drug" as they never tire of reminding us? Yeah, it probably is. But so is Pabst Blue Ribbon. Let's get a grip here.

Certain things really have their own advantages and disadvantages. I think moderate is the perfect word for all of these.
