    but your examples are not criminalized for that, they are criminalized for infringing on others’ rights

    Actually they are not. They date back to the era when Biblical values were were legislated. The same era in which almost every state made both consensual sodomy, fornication, and adultery felonies.

    Without God there is no morality. He is the source of all true morality. As an ex-smoker I can say that intentionally inhaling the smoke from something is stupid, retarded, idiotic, no stinking common sense. It does not matter what it is cigs or pot. Smoking cigs is just as immoral as smoking pot. Both do things to the body it was never made to take. The bigger moral problem is with pot because it does not keep in line with staying sober minded. It is no different than getting drunk.

    Now pot as with alcohol may serve some medicinal purpose and then it should only be used for that purpose, in moderation, and under a doctors care. Such a use should never be abused as an excuse to get high.

    I should not have to caveat this issue but people just cannot stand it when they find it difficult to protect their buzz.

    Hey Reynolds, did you know petty theft (among other crimes) is now legal in San Francisco? You can go there and shoplift 'till you drop. just keep the total under a thousand per day.

    My advice to any pot head is to move to Colorado, Illinois, WA state. or Oregon, any state that has already approved of the weed,

    Your president's constitutional rights are being infringed by your party. Second amendment rights are being infringed by the governor of Virginia, a member of your party. The unborn's constitutional right to life is being infringed by RvW and the members of your party. Roll another joint and ponder.

    This question needs more attention by government and society.

    It’s nice to see that Agent47 is capable of presenting a point, and backing it up, while being respectful.

    Mostly, I get trolled for no particular reason and once it goes south I get down and beat them with experience.

    This is a Christian forum and I was trying to get a feel of how Christians navigate around marijuana politics.

    Clearly, Marijuana is certainly not as interesting as abortion or LGBTQ subjects

    Marijuana is not a hill Christians wish to die on


    PS
    I am not a pot head nor a smoker and I have never been.
