    What makes alcohol special? It's a drug, just like any other mind altering substance. And not even a safe one, comparatively.

    The same point as anything that's pretty much purely for fun. Some drugs give people useful effects (see: caffeine), some can help people figure out more about themselves (hallucinogens), stress relief, and so on. I'm not saying they're good necessarily, but just trying to give a few "points" of them.

    The reason people drink is because it can be a lot of fun. You're exaggerating the bad parts by not mentioning any good parts. Yea, you can do stupid things, forget stuff, and do things you'll regret, but that's why drinking in moderation, or actually knowing your own limits is key. I've never gotten hungover myself, but that'll probably come later in life. Drinking can lead to stupid things, no doubt, but it has it's upsides. Keep in mind, I'm talking about getting full on drunk. People who go to parties "to get wasted" is what I'm targeting here. I've gotten tipsy before and I had a great time - I'm not denying the usefulness of alcohol, but the far extreme that the term "drinking" is paired with. And thanks for the tip, I'll look into it. Oh, fair enough. Yeah, I rarely drink, and when I do I usually only have a few beers or shots, but I dislike going out and having far too much. Just noticed you're in California. Well, you have it really easy in terms of getting a license, consider yourself lucky. at above: People don't generally smoke a pack and a half a week if they're smokers, a lot will go through that in a day. Tobacco, again, when you count in medical costs over a lifetime is 220,000$

    A smoking habit costs several hundred thousand dollars over a lifetime. I don't think alcohol comes near that. Though, medical expenses from alcohol could come close to those of smoking, though it's much less common since it's a lot more difficult to heavily abuse alcohol than tobacco.

    Marijuana has a low potential for abuse compared to both major legal drugs, and almost all illegal drugs. It's only a gateway drug because it's a illegal, you're only likely to get introduced to harder drugs your dealer might have. Tolerance for weed is highly exaggerated. You will never get to the point where you will not get effects from smoking, it'll just take a bit more than at the start, and taking a few week break will reduce that to zero. Acid arguably has a chance of flashbacks a few days after taking it, but I think it's minimal, and shrooms are pretty much harmless. Meth is rarely made from pills, it's made from over the counter ingredients. Pills can already be sold (they're already amphetamines, huge market for those as it is), but we are over-prescribing amphetamines as it is, but that's another problem altogether.

Google mmj in your state, and that'll set you on the right path to finding the steps to get a license. I don't know if it's that great a help for headaches, though. And at above poster, alcohol is pretty [cabbage]ty for your body. Weed will never kill you directly. But yeah, moderation is key in all substances.

    I've done quite a few substances, and I respect anyone who chooses not to. There are a handful of illegal drugs that are much less harmful than legal drugs like alcohol and tobacco, as most people know, and the reasons many of them are illegal are questionable. I have had a friend destroyed by heroin addiction, and they may not ever recover from it, I don't know. But, I also know a few people who have done "hard" drugs, and do them on occasion without letting them consume them, and I feel like that is their choice, and they know the risks they are putting themselves in, but I don't think anyone should have the right to tell them otherwise. I myself choose to stay away from the three common hard drugs, coke, heroin, and meth, and of course random less common drugs like PCP, but that is my choice, and does not have much to do with the legality of the drugs. I personally won't touch cigarettes. Tobacco is the most deadly drug of all, (I don't mean when compared directly to say, Heroin, in terms of how easy it is to overdose) killing over 4 million a year, if I remember right. I see no reason for tobacco to be legal, when drugs like cannabis, mushrooms, ecstasy, and so on are illegal. In my opinion, the War on Drugs is probably one of the most ineffective, pointless, and terrible policy the US government has, it has caused literally nothing good. I think that a much more effective way to deal with drug problems is proper education into the risks and drawbacks of drug use, but factual information, rather than scare tactics and threat of massive sentences.

  10. I think my boyfriend of almost 2 years and I are going to break up permanently... It's gonna be a tough few months if that happens, I have such a tough time getting over people..
  11. If the Cartel are using weapons and ammunition illegally bought from shops in which the ATF authorized illegal sales, then yes, the blood is on the ATF's hands. There is no way that the blame can be placed, or for that matter, reduced by any degree, anywhere else but on the ATF. Oh, I dunno, how about placing the blame on the killers? This. Off topic a bit, but I was watching CNN last night, and they kept blaming the pastor who burnt the Koran for the attack on the UN compound, as if he did it himself. Not sure where you're getting the 10k for an AK in the states though. Depending on the state, you can get a Eastern European one for less than 1k legally. Authentic Russian ones may run you a bit more, but they aren't that expensive. AKs are really expensive in North America due to high smuggling costs and really stiff penalties (both in Mexico and the US) so $10k is about right. Anywhere east of Poland, you can buy AKs for around hundred bucks, same as in North Eastern Africa and The Middle East. And as long as they aren't made in South East Asia or South America, an AK is an AK so don't bother paying for one that is Russian made. I'm talking about a legal full auto ak-47, so a pre-ban registered one. Black market is undoubtedly cheaper, but a gun store wouldn't be selling those. http://www.westernfirearms.com/wfc/ak47?set=30&sz=800x600 http://www.gunsamerica.com/946126068/Guns-For-Sale/Gun-Auctions/Rifles/Class-3-Rifles/Class-3-Subguns/AK47.htm http://www.gunsamerica.com/985720344/Guns/Rifles/Class-3-Rifles/Class-3-Subguns/POLY_TECH_AK47.htm http://www.gunsamerica.com/959157130/Guns/Rifles/Class-3-Rifles/Class-3-Subguns/Polytech_full_stock_AK47.htm ^examples.

    Expand your interest elsewhere. Make peace with them. Become less radical in your expansionism. I dunno.

    Could always just have your country sit around researching and growing, and then if you feel like playing you can.
