    While not every pot smoker will go on to harder drugs, I don't think you'll find one heroin addict that just decided one day to stick a needle in his arm for the heck of it.
    Just the same as not every alcohol drinker will go on to become a real alcoholic.

    Studies HAVE shown, however, that regular pot use by teenagers retards mental development. Which would explain a lot about the current generation of young 'uns.

    I've dealt with stoners and drunks. I'd much rather deal with a stoner. I'd really prefer neither drive. or handle firearms while under the influence, and that is the thing. My CCL is void if I am under the influence of alcohol. Pot should be handled in the same way.

    We are finding that people who smoke pot are just as libel to have problems with COPD and cancer. They looked down on cigarettes for this, how long until pot is looked down on?

    They might be just as liable to have COPD and cancer as cigarette smokers but that has nothing to do with the 2nd Amendment.

    I worked with The HRC for a few years, and knew lots of heroin addicts who couldn't stand pot. There's certainly crossover, but they're really two different crowds with different drug agendas. Ditto meth. Fact is, the biggest gateway drug on the planet is alcohol, not pot, yet no one likes it pointed out. If you get high on alcohol, you are WAY more likely to smoke or use other drugs. And BEER is THE gateway drug to hard liquor... a dangerous, highly addictive, mind altering and impairing drug responsible for WAY WAY WAY more violence and driving homicides. I tried it a few times myself in the 70's and didn't like it... but I do like bourbon. Having used both, I can say with certainty that alcohol is as strong, addictive, and dangerous as most schedule II drugs... whereas pot is not. We have weed stores on every corner here in Oregon, and the sky didn't fall... business as usual. Ditto liquor stores. A lot of to-do and fuss for decades about nothing after all.

    This country is OVER medicated and people are addicted to legal prescription drugs, yet the government is worried about pot? Legalizing weed is just another form of control and the pot smokers don't even realize it.

    Good thing skimming is not indicative of smoking pot. If so, @Cricket would demand that I went in for a company urinalysis test.

    Stoned people do stupid stuff. They do not show good judgement . If you want to live a stoner life then leave the car and the guns to others. Yes I been around users most of my life so the it's good shit won't work on me.

    Now they are getting sneakier. Starting a year or so ago, all of a sudden there's a big push for the VA to prescribe marijuana for PTSD.
    Coincidence? Or another attempt to disarm veterans?

    Because of our lovely government, I never filed a claim with the VA for PTSD. I just didn't trust them. Still don't. And I damn sure wouldn't try to get a pot card.
    I have known some veterans that were put on the prohibited list for having a payee. I do not know about the VA in your area, but the VA in Minneasota is very clear in not supporting and not providing medical cannabis for any condition. It is fairly common for veterans to come to the VA Medical Center in Minneapolis looking for VA prescribed cannabis since MN allows medical cannabis, and are always disappointed.
    I do not have a problem with cannabis being legalized, but I do think that there should be some "body" overseeing the quality, safety and potency of the product. I also do not think that using cannabis should make a person a prohibited person in buying a gun, ever. Of course I am also a person that thinks anyone safe enough to be in the community and pay taxes should be able to exercise their 2nd amendment rights.
