    Just a little clarification to those of you who don't think the marijuana grown in the good old USA has any ties to Columbia. Actually read an article, coincidentally, yesterday that said that the illegal aliens who guard the pot gardens in California's National Forests are hired by these same Columbian Drugs Lords portrayed in said anti-marijuana commercials . . . .they use the profits from selling marijuana to you casual, recreational users to fund making methamphetamine, which they sell to little 15 year old girls who then let men use their bodies for sex, make babies who are addicted to methamphetamine, and live lives of degradation. Are you all really nurses? Do you live with your heads in the sand? Are there an OB nurses out there who see the effects of illegal drugs on kids? The stats for my county show that over 50% of the babies born here are born with illegal drugs in their system. How in the world can legalizing drugs stop that? It is appalling that we fund Columbian Drug Lords and their murderous mayhem. Just because alcohol and cigarettes are legal doesn't mean that we should add to the negative effects of alcohol and cigarettes and the people who already use illegal drugs. Legalizing santions drug use. More people will use. More kids will be irrepairably hurt.
    I do believe you are a victim of propaganda.
    Where do you live that over 50% of the babies are born with illegal drugs in their system and why are they drug testing all the babies born in your county?
    Don't believe everything that the media throws at you.

    Not sure I understand your post, Rusty.

    I wouldn't have to state this about filing stupid lawsuits if we didn't have people suing McDonald's and the tobacco companies for claiming the same things. Who would've thunk it?

    Anyone see the new anti-drug commercial during the Super Bowl? Did you know that smoking marijuana leads to pregnancy? Nah, no propaganda there!

    It's true, sex has nothing to do with it....

    I also read that nearly 100% of hard drug users wear shoes. So now I propose we start an anti-shoe propaganda campaign because shoes are obviously causing people to move onto hard drugs

    I think the ad was meant to state that when you're high, you are bound to make stupid choices. I've seen many a chick have sex as a result of being too doped up or drunk to make a wise choice.

    Besides, is it really that bad of a message to send to teenagers for cripe's sake??

    Shesh...kind of intrusive aren't you? Seriously, Susy...this ad may "work" for alcohol use and it's effects on this type of decision making, but it shows that the anti-drug people haven't done their homework as to the effects of marijuana. They are undermining their cause with their half baked propoganda.

    Actually, there are studies showing the effects of marijuana, both physiologically and psychologically, and it's effect on decision-making. The ad was accurate.

    Don't forget, I work with a Pharm & Tox research fellow....
