    The issue is the wisdom of the ban which is legal.

    Oh and the alcohol prohibition versus pot is inapposite as well, but closer.

    Make your case for pot. Period. The metaphors and comparisons are all assailable.

    Just make the case for legal pot and we'll go from there.

    Oh and "I think government should stay out of people's lives" me too....but that isn't going to win the day either. Make the case for legal pot.
    Isn't that the equivalent to saying one should be illegal because it's illegal, the other is legal because it's legal? We are talking about what should and shouldn't be legal, not what is already legally protected. Owning a gun can be legally banned with the repeal of the 2nd amendment.

    It's a fair comparison in that people who don't find the appeal in something want to ban it because they see the negatives and don't personally enjoy the positives.

    What..........are you serious or just sticking something out there.

    People make choices. It is up to them what they put in their bodys. Just do not strap the burden of your poor/idiotic decisions on me and mine to deal with the results.

    Having dealt with much of this 1st hand I see the good bad and indifferent of it. People can be weak. Easy paths are what they choose over life's hard work. It is so evident in the snowflake culture that want all the **** for free now. Bernie Bernie Bernie. **** all of that Bravo Sierra. Make bad life's choices then deal with those checks you wrote when they come due for collection and trust me they will come due.

    If you live in the fast food drive through and suck big gulps all day long that will come due on you as well.

    Make good decisions. Pay your dues as you go.

    But hey, I know I ask too much.

    My point is that protecting people from themselves via drug laws seems to use the same logic as banning big gulps did. People can't be responsible for themselves, sugar related diseases are among top killers in us, Gov't bans it to protect people from themselves.

    Where insurance comes in is this. If I lose track of the days and come in on the 29th day and ask them to fill my script, they will bill the insurance, then find out I'm a day early. Insurance denies the claim, but wait, there's more! Now that insurance has denied payment, when I come in on the 30th day to pick it up, they charge me $300 instead of $50. Then I get to call my prescription provider who has to raise a case number for the help desk that the pharmacy gets to call to clear the denial, so they can run it again. It's a real fun way for all of us to spend about 45 minutes.

    Now, could I get around all of this by having my doc prescribe twice the dosage concentration and only giving him half? Yes, but that would be unethical and I would never do anything of the sort.

    Restricting drug access to people like me, does nothing to restrict the access of the tweaker who is cooking meth in the trunk of his car. All it does is make my life miserable once a month.
    I don't mean this as harsh as it will sound, but should we then loosen the scheduling and restrictions on amphetamines (which absolutely were harmful and abused when they were easily prescribed as 'pep pills' or 'diet pills') because that would be convenient for you?

    The problem is legalization of MJ isn't going to help you, and those of us who are not users (or libertarians) just see users who want their drug habits to be less risky and inconvenient. That they are willing to risk legal and professional consequences to keep getting high never seems to tell them anything about the seriousness of their habituation - it only makes them want to mitigate the consequences

    I see ATO's point. I get a testosterone injection once a month (another "controlled substance"). My doctor's office used to keep it on hand and all I had to do was show up for my monthly nurse's visit. Recently they changed the regulations (for secure storage and such) to the point where my doctor's office didn't want to mess with it, so they now prescribe it to me, and I have to pick it up and bring it to my appointment. I can only pick it up 4 weeks to the day after my last prescription was filled. There have been many times where it would have been a lot more convenient to call it in a few days early (especially if I had a trip to Walmart planned already), but they will not fill it early, even though it has to be administered in the doctor's office. Stupid law. I'm going to turn 60 this year, and have no plans of joining MLB and setting any home run records any time soon.
