'Just Not a Serious Opinion in 2019': Critics Pan Joe Biden Claim That Marijuana Is a Gateway Drug

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/11/18/just-not-serious-opinion-2019-critics-pan-joe-biden-claim-marijuana-gateway-drug

The real crime is continuing an atmosphere of disconnect, poverty, white collar crime that leads people to want to escape everyday life through alcohol and other drug use.
And the music is so much better.

Right On, Bye-Bye.   I tried grass a few times in the late sixties (best as I can remember), a couple more times in the early seventies, and roughly once per two decades since.   In my old age (over ¾ century) I am now hooked on chocolate stout (two or three glasses per day), for which my earlier experimentation with weed is obviously responsible.

I guess that means that the entire country of Canada is heading towards teh misery of addiction, yes?FFS. The harm done?Has nothing to do with weed[now legal in Canada]. It has to do with the thousands of folks behind bars, learning how to do real crime and certain of not getting any meaningful employment[!] because of a stoopid “criminal” charge for a victimless crime.
Canada made it legal and…wait for it…nothing. No spike in anything. Just a collective sigh of relief that a substance LESS dangerous than alcohol is finally legal. Ask Joe. What party do you want to go to Joe?
One where they started drinking early and you know will end with broken glass, broken hearts and almost certainly a drunken brawl? Or one where some folks share some weed and wind up?Laughing a bit too much and going home with a case of the munchies? I know which one I would like to go to.
Of course this is the real Obama regime. About as progressive as GWBush but without the torture. Obama, was just better than Bush, but not much better. He still wont get behind single payer or Medicare For All, because he still believes healthcare is a business and not a service.
Weed is not a killer but his drug of choice is, that drug is alcohol. If you rich like Joe or Barack, you can go to a fancy rehab for your alcohol additction…but if you poor…we will see you in the wrong side of town all over America, treated like scum, not like a person with a problem. No fancy rehab for you!Yet alcohol IS endorsed by society, a “society” that turns a blind eye to the harm alcohol does and the fact that it is the biggest killer except for Big Pharma’s legal drugs=FACT. Legal drugs of every variety, advertised on TV[only two nations on the planet allow that!] in direct marketing ads that would make a street drug pusher blush.
Whats that in your hand Joe?A martini?Joe?STFU.

And if it’s a gateway drug we should concerned with it is certainly alcohol.
The idea of moderation please. Congrats to Canada for becoming more sane with legalizing one of natures medicines.

Byedone is an uninformed puppet for the deadly legal drug conglomerate, as he is for for-profit health-care insurance parasites and obscenely inflated health-care costs that are part of the current charade!.

“Gateway” to what exactly joe? The list of people who have excelled in life and business, the arts, philosophy, religion, science and much more is very long - what have you excelled at joe, clearly not politics (except as stooge for business as usual and a repressive agenda!), not integrity, not moral compass, or rational thought, or fighting for the “little people” - the vast majority of Americans - just as this mindless anti-pot blather, towing the law & order big-pharma line shows without doubt. You are ane embarrassment and fraud whose time to screw us has expired long ago! Time you were escorted out of the DINO nomination charade and BS “centrist” manipulations!

https://www.veryimportantpotheads.com/ see many of our most revered national heroes and people of great distinction who have enjoyed and thrived as supporters and aficionado’s of recreational Cannabis!

End The Prohibition and phony anti-cannabis propaganda! - demand real legalization and complete normalization without corporate profiteering!

Biden is such a lying tool, a conservative reefer madness drug warrior, and he never learns.
PS- You can grow way better cannabis than you can buy. This website helps me a lot:

I used have a mental picture of John McCain shaking his fist as he yells at kids: “Stay off my lawn.”

But it’s been replaced with Joe ByeDone in the lead role.

Tipper ByeDone’s next pronouncement: “Rock music leads to pre-marital sex, we need to study that!”

Ol’ Uncle Joe is such a corporate tool he should change his name to Joe " The Screw Driver " Stanley.
And, the MSM thinks Joe is a lock in the S. Carolina primary; well, because the black vote really wants to see more police harassment and unequal judicial treatment by conservative ( law and order ) courts.
Who knew?

Same old tired argument again.

He’s pretty limber for a man of his years. I’m only 56, but there’s no way I could possibly fit both of my feet in my mouth.
You gotta hand it to ol Joe. He manages to do it once a week, and the only exercise regimen he seems to partake in is rubbing his shriveled up old junk up against unfortunate young girls.

I’ve always thought that the claim that pot acted as a gateway drug had some truth to it. Not because of any addictive properties but gaining access to dealers in illegal pot meant you were also rubbing elbows with people who peddled other things. Your pot guy knew an LSD guy who knew a coke guy who knew a scag guy. Once you’ve gained access to the underground pot economy, your world opened to the whole cornucopia of goodies. The Bidens of the world turned pot into a “gateway drug” with their stupid prohibition. (I’m old and referencing the 60s and 70s so my drug list is dated.)

Sorry but the very idea of putting chocolate in stout made me throw up in my mouth a little. Just seems like a sin. I always thought a black-n-tan was an abomination so maybe I’m just a stout snob.

I wonder if Joe knows that Neoliberalism is a gateway to Fascist Oligarchy?

I’d say his finger is more likely on the pulse of 1914. Joe always has been a hardcore drug warrior. If he could he would likely make possession a felony once again. So Joe how many lives have you saved from the agony of addiction by throwing them in prison for a decade and tagging them with a felony so they can never again get a decent job, government help for education, or even Section 8 housing for possessing a joint? Further, if he were to win the democratic nomination he would probably pick Harry Anslinger as his running mate. Ok so who cares if the bastard is dead? It’s the thought that counts.

Amen Emphyrio!!! It’s time to do a Portugal and legalize ALL drugs for persons 21 years of age or older and use the government to regulate them for purity, accurate dosing and appropriate labeling just as they currently do with alcohol. Do so and watch overdose deaths, property crimes, organized crime ala drug cartels, diseases such as HIV, and corruption of government and law enforcement decrease exponentially or be completely eliminated overnight. Alcohol prohibition was a complete and total failure and did nothing but create crime and cause disease and death. At least the government officials of the time were smart enough to repeal the prohibition of alcohol before it became an entrenched part of the legal and economic system. Thanks to self serving politicians like Joe Biden drug prohibition keeps on thriving and destroying lives. Thanks Joe, enjoying your martini?
