    see, this is kinda why we're likely to never agree. you seem convinced there are really no negative consequences to smoking weed, but there are. I'll admit there's a bunch of people that pot has little, or no effect upon, but for every one of those, there's a reciprocal burnout who can't even remember his own middle name. Is it a 1 to 1 ratio? who knows, that's a statistical argument. Make it legal, and you kick open the floodgates, just like prohibition, and there's no turning back.
    Not at all. I am CONVINCED there ARE negative consequences to smoking weed, but those consequences are PERSONAL consequences. (Driving under the influence is bad news, and can have non-personal consequences, operating machinery intoxicated, same deal, etc. etc.).

    This argument is about personal use, in your own home. While there are negative consequences to that type of use, the consequences are entirely personal, and I feel that I should be free to choose to do something that has negative consequences on only myself without the government stepping in.

    But when we ride very fast motorcycles, we ride with immaculate sanity. We might abuse a substance here and there, but only when it's right. The final measure of any rider's skill is the inverse ratio of his preferred Traveling Speed to the number of bad scars on his body. It is that simple: If you ride fast and crash, you are a bad rider. If you go slow and crash, you are a bad rider. And if you are a bad rider, you should not ride motorcycles.

    howabouts all the pro-potties, do a track day HIGH? Hey, no problem right?

    Anyone biting on that bait could easily get banned from any & all future activities at NHIS. BUT, I'll up the ante. Howz 'bout we test your theory in a much less controlled environment? Doing your experiement on the street would make it a little more in depth, wouldn't you say? More real world, no? You being the self described squid should oughtta love something like this. Lemme know when, I'll clear it with the boss...

    I'll even toss out this Saturday as a date. Tell me where to be, tell me when to be there. We can even ride roads on YOUR list, roads I may have never been on...

    And never mind your usual roll-of-the-eyes smiley bullshit. You wanna test your theory? Then fuggin' do it. I'll be the test subject...

    My answer is a resounding NO.

    Maybe something else for shits and giggles, but not anything that could get someone killed for such an extremely STUPID reason.

    And these 'proven negative effects' would be?

    oh, D... you posted just in time to give me a reason for sifting through 6 pages of PAAAAIN, thank you

    and i gotta admit... i've been against it all my life but i'm comiin around on this issue. I've been a momma's since day 1 & always believed that everything that's illegal is bad and everything that's legal is good... well... now i know that's not always 100% true.

    i think i shoulda voted YES on the whole "turn it into a traffic violation" thing. I still don't think it should be 100% legal, but it shouldn't carry such a harsh punnishment & tie up our legal system so damn much.

    Ah, yes. Heaven forbid someone disagree with you and your self-proclaimed open mind. You offered the challenge up, mouth. I simply offered to make your challenge a little more intense. You're all fluff, Joe...

    "I'm not gonna argue 'cuz I don't care...I don't need to dig up facts 'cuz I don't care..." blah, blah, blah. Yet you keep harping about it like a pissy little bitch...

    Put your money where your mouth is, buttercup...

    Okay. I'm just way this, then I'm done:

    *I* think pot's a relatively harmless drug. Far less harmful than many legal drugs...

    I know a lot of very successful people that smoke regularly, and I know a coupla 'failures' that do too. That ratio isn't any different for people I know that DON'T smoke though...

    I think it's a HUGE waste of time and money to legally 'fight' pot...

    Pot is most certainly NOT in the same catagory as heroin, crack, cocaine, etc. No matter how you slice it, you just can't compare it to these. Those thinking otherwise should look into the subtle differences...

    Most people I've had rational discussions with in regards to this DO NOT want it legal so they can run people over with there cars...

    Most people I know DO NOT want it legal so they can smoke it. They're gonna smoke it anyway...
