"Vermont is a state I love. I could not look upon the peaks of Ascutney, Killington, Mansfield, and Equinox, without being moved in a way that no other scene could move me."

Laura can you show me where you got those facts. 

They’ve done scientific studies! A lot of ‘em!

Who’s they? Can you tell me the scientific company? Or show me any of their research?

It’s even funded by the government, which you see to like sooooo much.

And they say they’re open to researching the “good” effects too; they just haven’t found any. 

Oh my god.

If used casually, marijuana’s good side effects outweigh its bad side effects. Casual smokers do it because it helps them relax, it relieves stress, hell, it can be used as a painkiller. That’s where the term ‘medical marijuana' comes from; it alleviates headaches, muscle spasms, nausea from chemotherapy, Crohn's disease, all kinds of nerve pains and can even be used to treat people with eating disorders that prevent them from gaining any kind of appetite. 
Its negative side effects, like drowsiness and dizziness and loss of cognitive function, are temporary. As in, they go away faster than a bout of the flu goes away. 

The only time it gets bad is when you start abusing it, in which case that is your own fault, not the marijuana’s. Some people have addictive habits, some others don’t, but either way marijuana will not cause the extreme withdrawals that alcohol or meth does. Marijuana is just another one of those things you have to have self control over, like eating chocolate or fast food. 

And that whole “marijuana deforms your dick” crap is a myth, too. I don’t know who’s feeding you this stuff, but they’re getting their facts wrong. Again, people who abuse weed have a chance of being less fertile than non-smokers, but it’s all according to how fertile you are in the first place. Not every man produces the same amount of sperm, some of us make a lot, some of us make a little, and if you’re one of those that are already halfway infertile, you’re probably gonna kill off your production. 
It’s not even just men. It’s women, too. Your…thing isn’t gonna deform, you’re killing off your (limited) eggs.

Do I need to repeat any of that.

But people who “celebrate” 420 are the kind of people who abuse it. And you keep sayin’ that abuse of marijuana is harmful. Nothing encourages irresponsible behavior more than havin’ a whole day dedicated to smoking the stuff. It just encourages the bad behavior. 

And of course YOU’RE gonna support it cause it makes you money. 

Laura, don’t use logical fallacies when you argue about these sorts of things. It doesn’t help your case. Do you have any proof that the people who celebrate 420 are the same people who abuse marijuana? Did you actually read what Colin said? 

Many people are in favor of marijuana legalization because it’s a pointless thing to have outlawed. It’s not as harmful as you’re making it out to be, as several people have already pointed out. And if we were to legalize it, it would help solve our overcrowded prisons problem. Not only that, but if we put a sin tax on it, think of how much money that would bring in. And the economy does need a boost. :/
