    Sounds anecdotal. Besides, those same people that might not exhibit ideal effects under the influence of cannabis might have the same issues without the use of any drug.

    Ok, there's a brief feeling of paranoia during the onset of use. But you would have to prove Trayvon had just recently used marijuana. The evidence suggests his use was minor, not chronic. I believe his THC levels were around 1.5ng and that's not much at all. Although, it's true that if he had just recently used the drug his reflected level would not include some so recently ingested. Nonetheless, it's a leap to believe, based on evidence, he had recently used the drug or that it caused him to overreact and force Zimmerman to shoot him.
    Yes, possible, but unlikely. Now, being approached by a stranger in the dark might cause someone to feel like they need to protect themselves.

    A general relaxant can be used in a number of contexts, whether they be good, evil, or indifferent. Pot is not the cure for the human condition.

    Let's just say that in my lifetime I haven't had any bad experiences with people I know who were under the effects of marijuana. Annoying, yes. Like alcohol or some harder drugs, no. Obviously this is far from conclusive but it will take some well conceived studies showing definite causation for me to believe marijuana is a nefarious drug. I mean after all, Portugal is having such a rough time with its drug legalization.

    Hogtown has Krystal, just west of I-75, on Newberry Rd/SR-26.

    I'm guessing you don't actually know. There are a couple of studies that a lot of people reference, but those studies are far from conclusive.

    He might have gotten stoned and missed them.

    "Now I ain't makin' no excuses for the many things I uses
    Just to sweeten my relationships and brighten up my day
    But when my earthly race is over and I'm ready for the clover
    And they ask me how my life has been I guess I'll have to say

    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and it rolled right by
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned and I missed it
    I was stoned oh me oh my"

    So basically you are sitting on a wealth of scientific evidence you don't want to share with anyone. How selfish of you.

    Pot is illegal because it leads to the use of other more dangerous drugs, like alcohol and tobacco.

    BULLSHIT


    The TRUE "gateway" drugs are alcohol and tobacco.

    Pot is illegal because back in the 1930's the government wanted to protect American jobs from Mexican immigrant laborers and needed an excuse to deport them. They manufactured the mythology about the "evils" of marijuana in order to galvanize the support of the then ignorant masses.

    We built the greatest country in the history of mankind with pot LEGAL. It's only been in the last 80 years that the stupid policy of surpressing pot has existed.

    LEGALIZE IT

    For anyone wondering what 1.5 nanograms would indicate. In Washington the DUI limit for marijuana is 5 nanograms. If the state of Washington trusts you to drive at 5ng then I'd guess walking around at 1.5 isn't exactly noteworthy.

    The shit they are growing today puts any killer weed smoked in the 60's, thru 90's to shame. And it will only get stronger. It is no longer your mom's pot. Laugh all you want, kick me out of the cool kids club, but this will become a problem if not regulated. I have personally witnessed seasoned pot smokers MELT under the influence of the stuff coming out of the west coast.
