Do you feel the same way about those who are prescribed meds for chronic pain?
I was about to go here too. bmwrdr, would you be OK with police seizing your guns because you came home from knee surgery with your prescribed pain meds?
Being opposed to medical or recreational marijuana is a separate issue from being opposed to govt seizure of arms.
I am opposed to guns in the hand of a criminal, mentally I;; or impaired person at any time and any place, period.
I am opposed to drugs, especially if promoted to minors with no obvious reason, the same applies to alcohol.
A person not needing drugs does not need drugs or a treatment. Drugs and alcohol are a merchandise on the market and people consume it, I understand that part. What I don't understand is simply why would anybody get himself into a dependency. Best guess is those can't make a decision for themselves.
So why would anybody promote the benefits of marijuana without talking about the negative side? In particular who pays for it and who is responsible for the consequences?
In regards to guns, we have a regulation in place, felons, non residents, unconvicted criminals in progress committing a crime can not be in possession of a firearm by law. The same applies to the underaged and it is a law. Disobeying laws will get anybody in trouble if caught. No question or doubt about it.
We all know that bad things are happening with guns, those deeds are immediate and people get hurt or killed instantly.
With drugs alcohol or other substances the effect is not immediate in most cases. There are laws and regulations in place which are disobeyed at a much larger scale as in regards to gun crimes.
I am sure crime will always exist but I would not promote a gun sale to a person I am not aware of his background.
I would not talk about the benefits of marijuana without talking about the negative side.
Now let me ask you pro or not pro marijuana guys. Would you like to see a somebody promoting or selling wheed to your children?
P.S.: I doo like a good beer on occasions but I would not drink and drive and my firearm is locked up if and when I do. In regards to wheed, I have never used any of it but I have dealt with marijuana and drug users of all kind. I have seen coworkers being fired not passing a drug test, I have seen heroin addicted people and know how they ruined their live and health. All of those I know said they started with marijuana or haschisch (same thing to my best knowledge). All oof them had a financial problem of some sort.
Would I touch it? I don't need that and I won't hang out or around those either.
