    What about you get into drugs with addictive indexes significantly higher than that of alcohol? Cocaine is somewhere around 90%

    The government cannot question the validity of your religion. They can only question whether you truly hold the belief. Tax exemption, however, only applies to organizations that form for the purpose of religious worship. If you created a church of the God Emperor and truly held the belief, collected donations, and preached the gospel, you would qualify for tax exemption.

    What does your dad do when this happens? There is nothing wrong with them seeking pot, your dad does get paid for the visit. It is only wrong if your dad prescribes it, without legitimate claim.

    My dad is one of the most highly sought after neurologists in CT. It is hard to get an appointment with him. People who are there seeking drugs waste his time and risk the health of others who could use his services. He informs the patients that he does not prescribe MJ.

    Therefore it should be legalized.

    (Finished that line of thought for you.)

    There's nothing really wrong with legalizing weed. The stuff isn't particularly dangerous by the standards for danger we have set. I don't think hard drugs should be legalized but we need to stop treating addicts like criminals first and more like people with a serious mental disorder.

    The Democrat party is under so much corruption that even they are falling apart. It won't be long before we have Libertarian Party vs Republican Party. We will nolonger have to choose between an evil and a party that is ok. I am glad that US is moving away from the radical left that most of the EU follow today. Free market driven economy works. IT IS the best system we have today. sorry but it is true. LET people decide NOT government.

    Yeah, im sure you would LOVE to legalize weed, yea sure, let our children become addicted to it. I DON'T CARE about the silly argument that no one has died from it. the problem with even decriminalizing it is that people will get bad habits. Please stop listening to propaganda which distorts facts. Thanks.

    Again, rhetoric without any sources. If you are going to try to debate this here, you will need sources to back up your claims. Specifically that 'The Democrat Party is under so much corruption that even they are falling apart', and 'Free market driven economy works'.

    I'm not ashamed to admit that I was at one time a cocaine and meth addict. I kicked that on my own. Because I wanted to. The only reason I even came into contact with those drugs was because I had to deal with shady people who were selling me pot. If pot had been legal, I never would have gone that far.

    Just saying.

    How about you bring up some of your sources to refute mines then?
    Because it is pretty clear that you are being hypocritical by accusing me for lieing when yourself is not even bring up any links.

    Please no government funded sources, there is enough government corruption today, middle east wars thanks to Obama, forcing innocent citizens to buy into healthcare that they cannot afford etc.

    Didn't the GOP burn the libertarian party with how poorly they treated Ron Paul during the RNC? If anything I would expect the GOP to lose momentum if Obama wins the election.

    And Cap, when a person makes a claim and somebody challenges it, the burden of proof falls on the one making the initial positive claim, which would be you in this case.

    We embraced the libertarian party since they stood for free markets. And no I liked Ron Paul, just not as much as the other candidates because Ron Paul wants to cut defense spending when we are under threat of several other countries. If we had not cut defense spending 9-11 would never happen.

    I also question your claim that Obama is to blame for the wars in the Middle Easy. Did you forget Bush?

    because taking adding 30000 troops into Afghanistan is a GOOD idea. yeah he is to blame, also the invasion of lybia was also against the law.

    So, even though Bush started the wars, Obama is the one to blame? Alright, I think I can see where this discussion is heading.
