Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.
Holy fucking shit, yes.
They’ll pass legislation requiring teachers to carry weapons, before they’ll fundamentally adjust laws regarding Industrial Revolution tech.
You can keep blaming guns for the deaths that have occurred but at the end you will be fighting a pointless battle. Get rid of guns? Sure, its done. Let me hit up Obama, okay he said its good to go. Guess what? Now psychopaths will find more creative ways to commit their massacres. Bombs can be made out of house hold stuff, poisons, viruses, blades, pencils, yes I said pencils. Wanta know why? Because if you used a pencil to stab everyone’s eyes out, you’d still kill em. Are they going to ban pencils, bottles, all poisons, all house hold stuff that can make a bomb if mixed, etc etc? Stop blaming guns. There needs to be stricter laws for these guns yes but if you disarm everyone then you are going to be living in hell because the people meant to be protecting you will be the ones harassing you and able to kill you without you even having a damn thing to defend yourself with.
Seriously, China has a gun ban and people go on stabbing sprees, Japan bans guns and people ram their fucking cars into the sidewalk if some evil fucker wants to kill people taking away everyone guns isn’t going to stop them
Yeah; China: homicide rate per 100k: 1 [13.410 incidents]; Japan: homicide rate per 100k: .3 [442 incidents]; America: homicide rate per 100k: 4.8 [14,173 incidents]—
America: homicides -by- guns*: 11,160—
Remove -gun- homicides, and the murder rate per 100k is… almost equal to China’s, so—
Shut the fuck up. Don’t kill yourself or anyone else with a pencil while doing so.
*[pop**/100k]x rate per 100k***
**310million, for ease
Not much different than alcohol. Addiction, brain damage, psychological damages, doing stupid things while high and others. It has no real use as recreational substance other than fueling the hedonism of the weak minded individual.
Plus it induces a passive, idolent attitude in people at a time where it is least needed.
It also destroys reaction time and creates, essentially, the same effects as alcohol does but concentrated.
I actually support the legalization of marijuana, because our resources are spread too thin to catch the drugs that cannot be taken in moderation.
I believe that any drug that can actually be taken in moderation (like alcohol or tobacco) should be legal.
It is a waste of resources to hunt down people essentially breathing concentrated alcohol when there are drugs like methanphetamine, that, when used long enough, literally end the ability of the brain to produce endorphins, making it physically and mentally impossible for one to experience happiness ever again.
I do not support the legalization of cannabis because itʻs “harmless”. That’s a lie.
HOLY SATAN’S ASSHOLE THERE IS A LOT OF BULLSHIT IN THESE POSTS! Let me educate you a little.
Let’s begin with the comparison between Marijuana and Alcohol. Saying that they are similar in effect, side-effects and damage is so painfully wrong it basically shows your lack of knowledge on the subject straight off the bat.
I’ll start off with a pretty graph for you. It’ll help with your comprehension.
Let’s compare the two:
-There are ZERO Cannabis-specific mortalities.
-There is a small amount of Cannabis-related mortalities (which is pretty much entirely due to the criminal/illegal element of the drug.)
-Injury due to being stoned is almost non-existent in comparison.
-Economic damage is 75% less than alcohol.
-Related crime is non comparable. Especially considering weed is illegal and is has LESS related crime than alcohol. Doesn’t that tell you something?
-The community impact is non-existent compared to alcohol.
-The fucking overall damage score for Alcohol is 72 compared to Cannabis's 20.
Now let’s tackle dependency and addiction! No matter what your idiot weak-willed stoner friend says - There is no physical/chemical dependency to Marijuana (source). Psychological addiction is possible (and something that happens when people give something power). But hey, that is the type of addiction people can (and do) get with anything. This is why you have people who are literally addicted to video games, or binge eating. They’re normally escaping/covering a deeper problem which has nothing to do with what they’re addicted to. Go compare the figures HERE and you’ll see that alcohol destroys weed when it comes to addiction and effect to society.
As the psychology today source above says - ”Just like alcohol, some folks can smoke marijuana with little downside. It’s those who start to use marijuana as a crutch, who find they must have a hit to get through the day, who cannot go a length of time without getting high, no matter what the costs.”
About the damages of Marijuana. People normally throw around “what about Lung cancer?? You’re smoking something?”. This was something I was personally worried about. Until studies such as THIS ONE started appearing - "We hypothesized that there would be a positive association between marijuana use and lung cancer, and that the association would be more positive with heavier use," he said. "What we found instead was no association at all, and even a suggestion of some protective effect."
WHAT ABOUT BRAIN DAMAGE?!?!? I can hear you screaming it from here. Well there is zero evidence that Marijuana use can cause any damage to a fully-formed adult brain. It can cause issues for teens/kids if used while their brains are still developing (not as bad as alcohol, but still pretty bad), but fuck. Kids shouldn’t be doing drugs or drinking anyways, so it’s a moot point.
Anyways, I was going to keep on this rant, but I have things to do today. The medical research is out there. It absolutely hurts my brain that Marijuana is illegal while things like alcohol and cigarettes are legal. There is ZERO argument in which our current situation makes scientific, social or cultural sense.
Between the information and reason displayed here and here [and the above reply] “not much different” proves itself as actual weak-mindedness [not that the cog. diss. required to puritanically [purityrannically?] require “‘real use’ of recreation” isn’t astoundingly dumbfounding].
