      Pretty much...yup...thats the case.

      Most of the uber-religious ones fall into the "conservative" category. That way they can use the "less government! Government is evil!" mantra. So they can replace it with their "religion".

      They want so much "less government in our lives".

      And are so determined to know, and control what we do in our bedrooms.

      Hey! I agree!

      But I dont see "liberals" using the "God Almighty" angle even remotely as often as "conservatives". Both terms (thus the reason in quotes) are a joke nowdays. But they are two separate camps when you HAVE to look using black and white goggles.

      My previous statment, and the latter....stand.

Yet old man river is unelectable and too old fashioned for the establishment. Oh well, thank God for Fox News, right? They surely knows whats best for us.

  • dangerous? eat a pound and you die dangerous? not that a person would or could eat a pound but the last i heard it takes a pound eaten in one sitting to kill a person. not safe like alcohol or hydrocodone, where you can easily ingest a fatal dose. santorum is a god damn puppet.

    • @xyzzjp you are kind of missing the point. the FDA says eating a pound of weed is a fatal dose. you cannot eat a pound of weed, and that like you say is a questionable position to take in the first place. how in the hell is that even considered dangerous is my point. a fifth of vodka could kill a person of a low body weight. how many pain pills? 5 at once? 6 hydrocodone and most people will need help at that point. the toxicity of weed is nothing. salt is more fucking dangerous. eat a pound of s More..

      Two problems with this. First, a drug does not have to be fatal to be dangerous. Second, while it may be very difficult of overdose on pure THC, smoking marijuana means breathing in a lot more than THC.

      Pot is not a terribly dangerous drug compared to many, but it does affect the brain, and it has been shown to correlate, among teenagers in particular, with higher rates of paranoia and more serious, related psychotic conditions. No, you won't overdose, but you could rewire your bra More..

  • Not sure how it's fair to attack Santorum on this. I mean, other than maybe Ron Paul, no serious presidential candidate in my lifetime has advocated loosening up the pot laws. Santorum is simply responding with what the law is, and as much as people in favor of pot may want to argue that the laws are unconstitutional, such laws have never been found to be unconstitutional.

What the Federal Government has done with respect to Marijuana issuance to those deemed qualified to utilize it for medicinal purposes is a clear violation of the 9th and 14th Amendments however, the States have allowed themselves to be pushed around by the Federal Goverment and basically become their whore, whereby concessions will be made by the states to get Federal funding for various proj More..
