The real reason weed is illegal. Because it will take money away from both the alcohol industry and the pharma industry.

And the police state/prison system and the state in general.

Probably lots of reasons why it's kept illegal. I think the major one is that access to certain 'narcotic' substances, such as weed, psilocybin, lsd, etc. will counteract a lot of the media and cultural brainwashing the masses are exposed to.

I'm right there with you, on both substances. Keep fighting the good fight.

Patently bullshit. Beer and weed are a match made in heaven and sent into our tender embrace by God himself! It is the evil Satan known as Gubment! That forces these two star crossed lovers apart!

They are great together, but I can't say I miss the booze.

As in all things, moderation is key. Cracking a beer or three and smoking a little green is relaxation city. Go overboard on either when you're doing both and you're gonna have a bad time.

I no longer drink. Once you get scary with alcohol it's not fun anymore! Don't miss it, yikes.

If this were true, the Beer industry would be seeing a ¼ drop in profit. A glance at a handful of stocks doesn't show this.

I'm not in the best state to rebut this. I have the data, but I'm experiencing extreme difficulty putting it into a cohesive, coherent argument.

I will save this post for now, but I will get back to you on it.

I say fuck alcohol. Drink it if you want, but I can't handle the shit anymore. Maybe a beer every now and again, but I need to be productive every day, and hangovers are for young people.

Once you become a functional alcoholic you stop getting hangovers. I can drink a 12 pack and a few shots a night and have zero hangover the next day, beats the fuck out of me because I used to be like you, guess I took it too far.

I used to mainline heroin, meth and cocaine and im an alcoholic. ive been clean over a year. if I have cravings for hard stuff I will smoke a bit of weed and it keeps me happy and content, it replaces the urge to shove a needle in my arm. I can go to any pharmacy and load up on codeine pills(they're legal in canada). codeine is converted to morphine. this is how my drug addiction started at the age of 23, im 29 now. anyways, the government doesn't mind if eat codeine pills like skittles, they don't mind if I take a powerful synthetic opiate in methadone, they don't even mind prescribing me dextroamphetamine, but god forbid I smoke a bit of weed and eat chips

Same here

When I can't smoke weed and feel like I need to shuffle the deck, I default on alcohol, it happens like once in a month / every 3 months or so, and I like it less and less

It's really because I don't have anything better at hand that I default on alcohol

I just got done looking that over. Having read both, I'm now left with more questions than answers. What I'd really like is the specifics on how both the studies were conducted, so I might just email both parties to see if they'll provide me with more info.
