  • Only way can get what we want is we gotta do the Boston tea party and boycott the government office

  • When considering the legalization of cannabis, it is very important for us all to define what a hard drug is and understand how and why cannabis doesn't qualify as a hard drug.
    A hard drug is any recreational intoxicating substance that you can die from using the very first time you use it. It doesn't require a buildup of tolerance. It doesn't require anything other than crossing a threshold of toxicity that literally kills you because that recreational intoxicating substance was so toxic that even recreational amounts are enough to die from.
    It is equally important for us all to know and remember that ALL drugs, whether they are supposed to be used for illicit use, like cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine, or medicinal use, like the pharmaceutical drugs that so many people abuse these days, all qualify as hard drugs when used recreationally and yes, the most definitely includes alcohol.
    Alcohol is a hard drug. It is not only possible to overdose and die the very first time you drink alcohol, it is much easier for that to happen than most people would like to believe, considering how many young people drink alcohol.
    I have been 16 years completely sober from alcohol but I never stopped smoking cannabis. I've been smoking cannabis for almost 40 years and the only trouble it has ever caused me is getting arrested for small amounts for personal use. I've never sold it and I've never been involved in the cultivation of it. I'm just a casual user but I stay far away from alcohol and all other drugs. I'm not saying alcohol should be illegal. I'm only saying cannabis shouldn't be, especially when so many deadly, hard drugs are so available, and some are sold to anybody over the age of 21.
    The only recreational substance is other than cannabis that would be virtually impossible to die from the very first time someone used it would be tobacco. However, with more than 500,000 annual tobacco-related deaths, it qualifies as a hard drug by default. Any substance that kills that many people annually is not only a hard drug, it's an epidemic in and of itself. Between alcohol and tobacco alone, we're talking about close to a million related deaths annually. Just with those two substances alone and nothing else.
    Meanwhile, there has never been a recorded case of a cannabis overdose that was fatal.
    The legalization of cannabis is an opportunity for millions of people to make a more responsible and safer choice when using a recreational substance. Hopefully, people will drink less alcohol and use less illicit drugs and begin replacing the hard drugs with safe, soft, recreational cannabis that nobody has to ever worry about overdosing on.
    If used responsibly, there is very little health or safety risk. I hope South Carolina makes the choice of legal cannabis a reality for its citizens. Medicinal and recreational users are entitled to that choice as free Americans. Let's make South Caroline the next state to go green and benefit the health, safety, and economy of the good people of South Carolina.
