I don't mind if you're honest either, I encourage blunt truthful honest answers.
This part of the question is in here because when Hitler wrote the law, he broke no laws.

well, i dont really mind if im honest. as long as its not me who's using it. i have friends who do often, but it doesnt bother me, i dont judge them.
2. Is the use of marijuana morally wrong because statutes and ordinances say it is unlawful to posses it?
well, its an interesting question.. but to me, i only think its wrong because of its damaging effects on health.
3. Would America erupt into a lawless waist land if marijuana was decriminalized tomorrow?(ever been to Amsterdam?)
Probably! :L lol no offence to the americans! :3
4. Does the use of marijuana hurt more people yearly than alcohol(remember prohibition)?
i dont know the answer to this one, i remember hearing about it in the news, but i cant remember.
5. Does the use of marijuana kill more people yearly than officers(and SWAT) doing drug raids?
again an interesting view point... it really makes me think...
6. Do you believe that people should be put in danger of being killed when they have injured or potentially injured anyone?
i do believe however that if you kill someone you too should pay with your life. "an eye for an eye" as stated by the Bible, so with that in mind, if you hurt someone, yeah, you too should be hurt back, in the same way.
ive come to notice, that all your interests lie in very deep, political and contraversial issues, Fazenda.
what is it that do you do for a living?
or where do these interests come from?
when I mean morally wrong I don't mean health wise, such as I don't think it is morally wrong to eat Burger King food, but I do see it as morally wrong for Burger king to sell food known to be unhealthy. as for damaging health effects from marijuana, they only show up in the people who use it, and their children. but those effects are from the person who chose to use it, and they could have chosen to use other things that are legal that have similar effects(like certain medications)
I don't know the numbers either, I just know on this subject, crashes as a result of drunk driving is on the news more frequently than pot related injuries, and as for the prohibition thing, every time I think the word, this picture appears in my mind that seems more like an add for alcohol shows up.
this was actually A typo
I didn't notice my mistake until I read your answer.
6. Do you believe that people should be put in danger of being killed when they haven't
injured or potentially injured anyone?
Controversial issues yeah, but if we didn't question things, The world would still be flat.
I don't actually work yet, I am 19 and am in school at gateway(technical college)
The reason my posts are generally on similar topics is because I am trying to get this site to be more populated again and this type of thing is what I think I am best at for continuing an educated conversation in. Also these types of topics tend to spark heated debates IMOP
The reason I started this thread about marijuana is because I saw this youtube video and thought "hay I don't care if people I will never meet think I am some drugged up dumb airhead because of a marijuana thread"
as for where some of my interests come from, I listen to a radio program that I find funny yet educational, here is an example of a broadcasted episode.(it begins with a joke)
