Holy fuck. This country is starting to suck it. Hard.
Control freaks losing control freaks them out.
Ugh. Here's a fucking thought. Stop prosecuting people for weed possession. It's a waste of time and money.
This boggles my mind ...But not as much as this study boggled my mind:
Seems like it doesn't really matter because most weed has above the .3% delta 9.
Good. Stop prosecuting people for having pot.
i'm no legal expert, but isn't that exactly what the law is supposed to do?
Pot promotes peace, and peace if bad for business, mmmmmaaaaaannnnn!
Shit, someone slipped MH a pot brownie, or two.
It's a fucking plant that grows out of the ground. Fuck anyone who thinks the government should be able to ban a goddamn plant.
I can have mushrooms growing in my backyard that would kill a room full of people if I chopped them up and made Alfredo sauce with them and it's perfectly legal. But if those mushrooms make you smell colors all of a sudden I'm a fucking FELON? Our society has completely lost perspective on the role of government in our lives. COMPLETELY lost it. You want to control a substance like meth, the production of which requires stuff like ether, which tends to explode, or other such synthesizing or purifying processes - cool. You're not allowed to just run a still in your house but you can make beer, because beer won't create ethanol that'll kill you if you drink it (so basically they are controlling the alcohol-synthesizing process). Same thing here. You want to control synthesized heroin? That's totally different than saying that you are not allowed to grow a certain kind of plant. TOTALLY different.
I love how the potency of marijuana grows exponentially every ten years.
Yet, no one can ever find it available on the street. "whaa"
Yup. It's just redonculous.
The govt is way too big and way too powerful while at the
same time being way too out of control.
A few scientific errors but I get your point.
What scientific errors? Marijuana is a plant. There are mushrooms that can kill a room full of people. Meth production requires ether (or at least uses it in many cases, hence meth labs exploding). Distilling alcohol produces ethanols that can make you go blind or kill you. Not sure exactly where I was wrong.
EDIT: Upon further reading I misused the word "synthesized" with regards to alcohol. I meant distillation or purification, but still.
Headshrinkers like to fuck with peoples heads, maaan.
Ethanol and ethyl alcohol are the same thing. Distilling does not produce ethanol, fermentation does. Distilling separates ethanol from other compounds. During the process esters are created when the reaction of one hydroxyl is replaced by an alkoxy. The esters have a lower boiling point than ethanol and are produced and discarded at the beginning of the distillation process. Esters are poisonous but in insufficient amounts to be dangerous even if left in the distilling process. They would however contribute to "Off" flavours, odors, and hangovers. There is no way to make poison from fermenting edible sugars. The "It will make you go blind or kill you" comes from unscrupulous distillers adding non edible sugars like cellulose to cut/extend the amount of ethanol produced, this is cellulsic ethanal though, poison.
Heroin is not synthesized. It is a naturally occurring alkaloid in opium, the sap of the poppy Papaver somniferum. It's against the law to grow that plant too.
Ugh, could you be any more of an asshole? Yes, I wrote "produces" but you know exactly why I did. For all intents and purposes, it is produced by distillation because that is when you get it separated and in a fucking cup that you need a gauge to measure so that people don't die.
Yes, idiot, I acknowledged that I was using the word synthesize improperly. Powder or tar heroin is that opiate in a highly purified and concentrated form that you get with a bunch of complex processes, which is the thing that the government should be allowed to regulate.
Do you do customer support for Time Warner Cable? Because I didn't ask for a science lecture. You could have just said "you probably didn't mean synthesize" instead of assuming I'm a dumb child. Dick.
Yes you did.
Name calling. I love it!
Science! It's right or it's wrong.
Yeah I'm sure somehow semantically I'm "wrong." It's still true that distillation is dangerous because the first certain amount that comes out of the still is toxic. What, is it methanol, not ethanol? Is that the reason you're being so smug? Just fucking out with it already. Stop acting like I said unicorns come out of the still. You know exactly what I mean, which you said yourself. There's a big difference between being wrong and being inaccurate.
You're right. It's just poppy seeds all mushed together.
Well now I'm asking you to drink bleach.
I'm not arguing the science. I'm arguing your fucking attitude.
You kids need to smoke a joint.
Kids feisty! He asks me a question. I take the time answer his question. My time, I spend it on him cuz I care. I want to help. An whadda I get? With the yellin' and name callin'. Do I need this? Fuggitahbout it!
Ahh, he can go read a book! Amiright!
