Blades, For the next few weeks there will likely be no Weekly Thread. Sir Elliot is moving to Humboldt County to smoke some really good pot. And for graduate studies at HSU. But mostly to smoke some really good pot. Infact, if you check my first post here at GrassCity... (here: http://forum.grasscity.com/general/460683-life-humboldt-state-looking-grad-schools.html ) you'll see this move was what started me posting here in the first place. A few people thought I was OSG at first, because I guess I registered and posted on the day he took his break from GC... which I've always found a bit funny. Seriously, that guy is like the Yoda of marijuana. Needless to say, my internet access will likely be limited as I engage in a stupidly long cross country drive and get set up in Arcata. I encourage others to make their own weekly threads in the mean time. SO, this ought to be an interesting weekly thread to hold you blades over. QUESTION: SHOULD MARIJUANA BE ILLEGAL? IF SO, WHY? IF NOT, WHY NOT? I'm serious about this. There are so many people in this forum that are pro-big-government controlling all different aspects of an individual's life, insisting that the government knows best, that the government knows what should and should not go into your body, that the government should make all your major decisions for you, etc. Well, the government has decided that marijuana should be illegal. Obama even supports keeping it illegal. If you support big government, how can you possibly consume marijuana, after all, Obama and Nancy Pelosi have decided that it is bad for you and you need to go to jail if you use it. And they know best. If you want the government out of your life when it comes to marijuana and all such related things, how on earth can you support a big government that is involved in all the other aspects of your life? That ought to keep things interesting while I'm moving.
