    you are not going to get anywhere. I do not think the average person typically makes the distinction between different types of addiction.

    While I doubt you can prove the 0 deaths number the science supports the ways in which weed is and is not addictive - as you said, it's not chemical.

    If you read my entire comment you would see my conclusion - since it is probably LESS harmful/addictive than two other legal and highly regulated substances there is no good reason NOT to legalize.

    If you believe that ALL criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're an idiot.
    If you believe that NONE of the criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're a fool.
    If you call EVERYONE who criticizes Israel antisemitic, you're just an a$$hole

      It has a theraputic effect and cannabinoids have shown anti-cancer and neuroportectant properties. The possible harm done by smoke can be eliminated by vaporizing or making edibles or wax/oils, if the medicinal properties don't alieviate the negative effects of the smoke themselves.

      You would have to inhale something like 15 pounds in 15 minutes in order to get a lethal dose, and even then youd probably die from asphyxiation first. Thats fairly harmless.

      In regard to the comparisions between the different tyles of addiction, yes, people may not think of it in those terms, that's why I like to differentiate.

      I will not say do not weep, for not all tears are an evil.

      It is more important to be a confident and articulate speaker than to know jack shit about anything.
