Tybalt, I think it safe to say that you and I will never agree on this.
However, I want to clear up a couple of misconceptions.
|Marijuana helps to quell the nausea that is caused by chemotherapy.
Exactly, it does not CURE the cause of nausea, it reduces your ability to FEEL it. In the same way and for the same reason they used to prescribe opiates to people with painful illnesses. Or getting the patient drunk before amputation.
Either way, I have no problems with medical usage.
|So far, pot has not led me one step closer to being a violent alcoholic
I wasn't violent, just STUPID. I was one of those idiots who think booze makes you MORE alert, MORE confident, etc, etc.
I chugged a water glass full of whiskey while partying with my "friends". Then, like a TOTAL fool, I drove them to get more. I blacked out and hit another car. It tossed a little baby from the back seat of the other car to the front. Thank God it wasn't thrown into the dash or windshield. That was MY wakeup call. I haven't been able to drink since.
|I think they would have to charge a little extra for that.
No, in business parliance it's called a "Loss Leader". You sell a lower profit item to get your potential customer into your "store" and expose them to stuff you make big bucks on. Business 101 guy.
|Don't move. I'll be right back with an eleven foot pole.
Here, you can use mine.
Seriously tho, do you think these people sell in grade schools for lunch money for some benevolent reason?? It's for the same reason the tobacco companies used to sell cigarettes in bunches of 2 or 3 in stores near schools exclusively. That was the only places you could buy them that way. That's not anecdotal btw, it came out in the legal hassles with the tobacco companies and made page 1 in many papers. It was a deliberate policy to generate "lifelong customers". Their phrase, not mine.
