Re: “Danehy

Tom, you say that marijuana "clouds his mind, dulls his coordination & slurs his speach". Lets explore your belief that marijuana usage is always going to have the above stated affects. Since you haven't tried it you must be going off of anecdotal evidence and propaganda you've read.
Some examples of marijuana users from the world of science: Carl Sagan (astrophysicist and author), Stephen Jay Gould (evolutionary biologist and historian of science), Richard Feynman (nobel prize winner in quantum physics), even our own estemed Dr. Andrew Weil & countless others who may have been to afraid to admit it to thier bigoted collegues and public. This should address the clouded mind theory.
Since you are a girls 2A Basketball coach maybe some folks from pro sports would be a better example for you. A NYT article from '97 had this to say: "Contrary to the wholesome image marketed by the National Basketball Association, 60 to 70 percent of its 350-plus players smoke marijuana and drink excessively, according to conversations with more than two dozen players, former players, agents and basketball executives." As for the NFL here's an interesting link : http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/03/24/n….
So, it would apear that not all smokers suffer a loss of coordination or clouding of the mind. Such a heavy-handed approach to your subject shows a lack of respect/knowledge of those you are speaking about. If you wonder why people are responding to your self proclaimed "different than thou" stance with such fervor you need only to see it is because of the denegrating way in which your writing lumps together all smokers. Such as the generalizations and outdated ways of thinking you spew will fall by the wayside as sensible laws are passed and more of the responsible, athletic and brilliant users of the plant can come "out of the closet" so to speak.
