Both ends of the political continuum seem to support throwing in the towel on at least some of the fronts on the war against drugs.

Joe the answer is simple. Many people don’t consider weed to be a drug.

If your right Jr. then “many people”, as you say, are wrong. My guess is many people simply don’t believe it’s a dangerous drug. Most people know that alcohol, tobacco, even caffeine are all drugs but we justify their use in society. The potheads simply want to add another herb to that list.
As to whether or not pot use is detrimental at all, I’m not sure a pot smoker is the one to ask. Denial is more than a river in Egypt.
Why do you think they call it dope?

If only people would use it in moderation, but so many don’t. Getting high occassionally is one thing but smoking weed every day does a lot damage to your body and your mind.

Before Dr. Graves goes on about societal trends throwing in the towel and federal response being the equivalent of a yawn or how today’s youth emulate what they see their “heroes” do on TV let’s take a look closer to home on the Mitchell school policy.
It seems to be pretty common knowledge that a group of students engaged in one of the more popular activities at the school were caught with some homemade treats that were laced with weed. The good news is they were caught, the bad news is the “punishment” for this was suspension from activities for “x” amount of “games”. So what did these enterprising students do? They joined activities they had no interest in and sat out their suspension when they didn’t have any intention of participating in until they were caught and went on with the activity they liked. It would seem the parents and school officials shook hands with each other and patted themselves on the back with a “well done” and life went on as if nothing happened. What lesson was learned?
Clean up your own house Dr. Graves.
