When you weigh out all of their effects and such, it really shows just how much the government has the two confused.
MUCH greater damage is caused when under the influence of Alcohol.

Maybe it's time to rethink the laws, yeah?

I think we've established this a REALLY long time ago.

I love beer. I love brewing it. I like getting drunk. There's nothing wrong with alcohol. Just learn to drink in moderation.

Stupid highDEA is stupid.

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 3:29pm

I agree people are stupid for upvoting stupid shit. Everyone already knows this

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 4:15pm

absolutely. the thing about drinking is that you can have tons of fun, make friends and just generally have a kick-ass time but you have to be RESPONSIBLE!!! Dumb mofo's make drinking look bad because they crash into a family of four and kill them, or they pass out and puke on themselves. Those people are irresponsible dumb shits, they would be that way on any drug.

this highdea needs to stop getting promoted

Well you don't see intervention episodes of people who ruined their lives because of weed. But you do with alcohol. I'm just saying a lot more damage is done when under the influence of alcohol. Thanks for your opinion but you don't need to say my highdea is stupid. EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN OPINION, you don't need to be rude just because you don't agree.

Thu, 12/22/2011 - 1:38pm

i didn't mean to imply that the highnea was stupid, i was only trying to say that this highdea in particular gets promoted about once every 2 months, it gets kind of irritating. Didn't mean to offend you

it's fine i posted it almost a year ago, my old highdeas are pretty dumb so whatevvv :)

Thu, 12/22/2011 - 6:11pm

You get your info from TV shows? Wow. Sad. Also, that's a show strictly about interventions. They probably don't show people who drink responsibly on there. I know a lot of people who drink and get drunk and don't act stupid or get violent.

it has nothing to do with which is worse. It has to do with money. They make bank off of alc. taxes and if they legalized herb, alc. and cig. sales would drop. Both of those industries wouldn't like that. Our gov't is fucked

shark_bait Says:

I totally agree with that, but I talked to my gov teacher and its all about what is socially acceptable. Every single president has smoked cigarettes(Obama quit, granted) and drinking alcohol has been socially acceptable since like the beginning of time. Smoking weed isn't socially acceptable because of pure ignorance. Everyone knows cigarettes and alcohol are bad for you, so its like assumed that weed is bad for you as well. By making weed illegal, it only confirms peoples beliefs that weed is bad for you, when in reality, tobacco has been linked to more cases of cancer than marijuana by far. The System wants the American people to think weed is bad by not labeling it socially acceptable. Fight The Man. Stoners aren't bad people. In fact, most people can't even pick out stoners from a crowd unless, of course, its blatantly obvious. We need to raise awareness, cause the gov and The Man just wanna stifle us. Lord this was a long rant. SMOKE WEED, BE HAPPY.

You should post this as a highDEA. It's better than the actual highDEA you're commenting on.

recent study showed increase in teens using mj while a significant decrease in them drinking and smoking cigs!! hopefully this type of information can help people realize that it is not harmful and actually beneficial in many ways!!

it's a sobering thought and also a sad one to think that marijuana will never be legal like alcohol is. Well unless you live in Cali like myself and have a card BUT that's besides the point.

time to move to Amsterdam for a summer.

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 3:44pm

no point in moving there either, dutch government is cracking down making it difficult for anyone but citizens to have access to mary jane

Every single day, some stoner rediscovers this fact and posts it on highdeas...

Nahhh I don't really give a shit, lets go smoke a bowl

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 12:39pm

No maybe's. WE. NEED. TO LEGALIZE IT! this shit i'm seeing on NORML'S facebook updates are just getting worse and worse with this medical marijuana despenseries are continued to be shut down. just legalize it before we kick your ass government... because we will.

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 3:39pm

How about instead of all of us complaining about how the government won't legalize it, we use the system against itself and get this plant legalized through legislation and work in judicial branches..

Something I thought was worth mentioning here; http://highdeas.com/hd/We_need_the_supreme_courts_intervention
a bit long but totally worth looking at I think

You don't like it when people hate on weed. Don't hate on alcohol. If you drink in moderation, you'll be fine and can relax a little. If you get fucked up on weed, it'll be just as bad as being drunk, but without a hangover.

This is by no means a new idea and the alcohol vs. marijuana debate has been posted on highdeas about 23401 times by meow.

Yeah everyone or most people know that marijuana is a big threat to all the industries, we can do so much with hemp that they have to say its a "drug"

It will be legalized eventually, once all the baby boomers are dead. Once more of the newer generation is able to outvote them it will be legalized. Government already knows alcohol is more dangerous than weed, they don't really give a fuck about our actual safety, that has nothing to do with why it is illegal

Tue, 12/20/2011 - 3:51pm

I love drinking apple pie with good bud. Jussayn it's a wonderful feeling. Just cause weed isn't legal just don't do something stupid and get caught thats all i have to say. Really it depends on who you're voting for next year. Ron Paul will help get marijuana legalized almost positive. However it's between him and Obama... again or newt (lol)

@Thabraze "If you get fucked up on weed, it'll be just as bad as being drunk, but without a hangover."

Really, because I do random shit when I'm drunk, its like im a different person but when I'm fucked on weed, I don't go around doing stupid shit. I just chill and talk, You know like most people who enjoy weed. Clearly you've never been drunk enough to realize there is a huge difference.

I've smoked and drank until I passed out. I've been high more times than I've been drunk tho. Weed affects me more strongly and alcohol, but I don't like being that drunk or high.

The govt doesn't care about what's safe. Human population growth is the number 1 worry in the world. Its well known that if humans keep reproducing exponentially theEarth will have more people than available resources by around 2066. That's a very short 50ish years away. Once resources are gone as a species we're fucked. So basically, the govt couldn't care less if you die.
