    Point taken but then again we will not know the amount of Pot related deaths untill after it becomes legal and studies are done comparing one verses the other. In many cases I think the two will be combined which will make driving even more dangerous.

    Perhaps it is time to put the cars that drive themselves on the market. 😉

    Pot has also destroyed many lives due to its links with mental health psychosis. This point is often lost among all the positive stuff published about health benefits and the like.

    In discussions my daughter always claims that alcohol is the most addictive drug of all. She doesn't use it, whereas I do, I like wine. Can it be that she is right?

    No, Heroin definitely takes the number one spot.

    "Not the same republican party it was 50 years ago. Not that I was in love with them then but now they are just a party of obstructionist hypocrites."

    Yeah...they've really become a party of "freedom" and "libertarian" ideals...haven't they?

    Just so long as the races are separate, nobody fornicates, everyone believes as they do and no one uses substances to escape that horror. 😀

    There are more ants in my garden than scorpions. Doesn't make them more deadly.

    Nicotine is more easy to come by than heroin. At least in my neighborhood.

    keep it up. It's crazy how much weight you can lose if you just stop eating sugar. If you can figure out a way to combine that with lowering your carb intake (since carbs turn into sugar) your weight will sink like a stone. ANd if you burn some calories now and again, you'll be fit as a fiddle....

    Sugar is definitely the evil empire.

    ...
    Unless they were army ants. The scorpion is more deadly than the ant, but they army is more of a threat than a measly few scorpions.
