    Why are guns legal, but pot not? Guns are far more lethal.

    Because banning weed gets the "family values" kind of voter on board.

    (by the way, are you that baked it took you three tries to make this thread?)

    Indonesia's Aceh province has got some killer weed.

    You do blow your brains out with weed though - but in an awesome way.

    While I agree pot should be legal, that's like asking why cars are legal and not weed since cars are more deadly.

    Guns have a non-recreational use.

    the gun lobby is a lot stronger than the pot lobby.

    maybe the pot lobby needs a better slogan - something like "weed don't kill people, people....wait, what was the issue we were discussing?"

    Because stoners can't defend themselves. Armed men can.

    Pot is used extensively to [treat] PTSD among poor people. Of course, the elites don't approve.

    The verb is "treat" and of course they don't like it because it is "practicing medicine" which is extremely highly regulated -- so highly regulated that there is acutally nothing MORE highly regulated except weaponry. (The more highly regulated a thing, the more it costs - Milton Friedman. But let's not go there. BTW, ever price a cruise missile? -- yeah. That's what I'm talking about.)

    And nothing pisses a certain class off like other people trying to go around the regulations. Even when it makes sense.

    because those in power are spineless hypocrates.
