“it is impossible to feed 1 infant for 400 a month. Unless you produce your own food, there is no way.”

“WHAT it might cost $120 for powdered formula? And if someone qualifies for $668 for SNAP they will also get WIC So in your case this expensive baby will have food covered and the other three will have $668.”

“Comprehension people.  i did not compare drug ABUSE to shootings.   I compared drug CONTROL to gun CONTROL.”

ThaLunatik on Nov 1, 2013 at 16:27:39

“But the reasons why our current drug control policies don't work are a result of the chemical dependency issues that result from drug abuse. Thus, comparing our failed drug control to failed gun control is still not a valid comparison.”

“" I'm so tired of "we can't stop all of it, so lets stop none of it" argument". --that is not what i said.  I think we have a better chance of helping depressed individuals than we do getting rid of guns completly.  Its not gun control it is people control if you want to be that blunt.   The mental healthcare sytem in this country is almost non-existant to what it used to be.  To me it seems that mental health and a majority of these shootings are related.            "There are a lot more people interested in using drugs then guns"   are you sure.  can you give me a source of your FACT please.”

“You are never going to be able to control guns. Look at how well the government control of drugs; illicit or otherwise has gone in the last 40 years. I think we have a better chance at controling people(helping people).”

ThaLunatik on Nov 1, 2013 at 14:05:58

“That's not a valid comparison at all. Someone who takes drugs and then becomes addicted has a chemical dependency and has trouble breaking the addiction. Their thinking is altered and people do things they otherwise wouldn't do, including criminal activity. The crimes a drug abuser commits are crimes, no doubt about it, but being a drug abuser in of itself shouldn't be treated as a crime. This is why the war on drugs has failed.

Someone who wants to own a gun has no such burden, however. Their mentality shouldn't be altered by owning a gun. Other countries have done just fine regulating guns.”

“There are a lot more people interested in using drugs then guns, and we regulate controlled substances in this country. I'm so tired of "we can't stop all of it, so lets stop none of it" argument.”

“What state is that. Maybe Virginia or WV Ive been to multiple gunshows in multiple states and every single time i have had to do a paperwork, show id. Even with private sellers we went to the local sherrifs office or courthouse and got the gun transfered. Everytime ive needed id. I have even been denied before because i moved and my id address did not match my current recorded address in the background check system. I think enforcement of these policy is lacking and maybe a few states need some policy reform.”

“All but 17 States do not require that private sellers verify their buyer's identity, or that the exchange be documented in any way. All that is required is money.”

“The Shafer Commission's report, "Marihuana, A Signal of Misunderstanding," was a societal impact study done in the eraly 70's, that concluded cannabis should be legalized or decriminalized. This commision was appointed by President Nixon and when he was presented the results of the the study he turned around and did the oppisite of what the commision recommended.”

“Shafer Commision Report "Marihuana, A Signal of Misunderstanding". This is where we should start at when getting into this debate. It is the most modern and comprehensive societal impact study done on cannabis use. Commision assembled by non other than Nixon himself. Commision found Cannabis should be decriminalized. Nixon did the opposite. Plus the gateway theory has been debunked more than once. You have an empty argument.”

“"We are disappointed with the decision," Steckler added, according to the report. "We think we’ve opened the floodgates to people who want to fully legalize all drugs."---Yeah so what. Make all drugs legal funnel all the money from court costs, incarceration etc and start up rehabs and mental health clinics. --that will never happen only a dream
"warned that marijuana could cause suicidal thoughts, impair driving and be a "gateway drug."
Fist with the suicidal thoughts. Are you kidding me. Talk about pulling something out of your ass. If anything it alleviates suicidal thoughts.
The federal agents grasping at straws just seems to get more hillarious as time goes on but there has to be a tipping point. Maybe we are pass the tipping point maybe not. Im really not sure. I think we need a few more states to come out and fully legalize and regulate a cannabis market. Maybe then the feds will see it isn'tthe scourge of the nation but something that could help it.”
