What I read was that the people growing the marijuana tend not to like random people just wandering onto their plantations. They said you'd be okay if you stuck to assigned routes, and proper trails, but if you decided to explore the forest on your own, you would be risking your life.
I honestly think that its crazy that non-violent drug offenders are taking up Federal and State money in prison. I disagree with many in my party on this. Seriously, it's a blow-back of the temperance movement of the 1800's, which was a stupid idea to begin with and something that the Church should have kept their necks out of.
I went to college with a guy who claimed to have a fair sized little grow-op in the woods by his place and that he had it thoroughly booby trapped against people wandering off with his plants. Yeah, that was actually at Bible college, that dude is pastoring a church these days. How could that possibly go wrong, right?
If it's anything like the herbs we grow in my apartment, indoor grows would also be more difficult to maintain. We had some oregano that was growing like mad and then just died one day. It was probably overgrown, but we've had all our plants take a nosedive recently even if they aren't overgrown.
...Apparently these people have never been around drunk people. Because the "possible side effect" of marijuana is also just as likely when using alcohol.
Why are we trying to make this an alcohol v. marijuana debate? You're not going to get anywhere with that strategy, when plenty of people love their beer and liquor and aren't going to come around when you try and portray their vice in a negative light.
There are people, albeit not a ton, that simply just can't use marijuana for one reason or another. I drink to have a good time, because I can't use other drugs. I'm all for legalizing marijuana, but don't make enemies when you can't afford to.
I'm pretty sure the cannabis side effect would be more like them sitting down on a couch eating Funyuns and drinking chocolate milk... now coke, my friend, that'll make you wanna f-ck like rabbits... not that I know from experience or anything...
Well, I suppose under those terms, then the picture is wrong on the alcohol side by quite a bit, considering the majority of "side effects" of alcohol are sex, more so than any other drug. One need only look at a college campus to verify this irrefutable fact.
Missed it, sorry. At the same time, the most frequent side effect of marijuana use I doubt is sex. I'd be willing to bet it's more along the lines of giggling and wanting to sit on the couch and watch a movie. (All anecdotal evidence, but I've been around a *lot* of potheads.)
