Mr Adams, If pot smokers are lazy and unkempt, how do you know they are caused by pot, and not the other way around? Determining cause and effect for things that often go together is tricky, as in global warming. Do greenhouse gases cause global warming or does global warming produce greenhouse gases? Maybe lazy and unkempt people simply find an outlet in smoking pot? Cause and effect can be tricky, and sometimes one cannot tell which is which, like the chicken and the egg.

Warming releases CO2 just as a warm Coke will spew more than a cold one when shaken.

what if global warming has nothing to do with greenhouse gasses, and greenhouse gasses have nothing to do with global warming?

What if there are no greenhouse gasses? All of the greenhouses I've seen and been in have filled with breathable, normal air.

Greenhouse gases refer to gases that reflect and insulate heat, like the glass of a greenhouse. Venus wouldn't have a surface temperature of 735 K if not for its atmosphere.

Did you know that interpreting analogies literally is a symptom of schizophrenia?

I would like to see how the CO2 layer (that doesn't exist because CO2 is heavier than air) can reflect and insulate heat. Just asking.

I was lazy and unkempt when I smoked pot, and when I stopped smoking pot, my motivation increased, as did my attention to physical fitness and the way I dressed and groomed myself. I have also seen the same thing happen in others, in the same order.

You obviously benefited from your illicit use of a controlled substance and went on to do better in life. How were you doing BEFORE you started using ...'pot'? If you were the same as when you were imbibing then it did you good. If you were motivated and paid more attention to physical fitness and the way you groomed and dressed yourself BEFORE you started imbibing, WHAT, pray tell, could have induced you to imbibe in the first place?

P.S. ???????? Or did you just make the whole thing up? Which a failure to clarify would logically seem to indicate. Otherwise I must be right. Either way...... It leaves the claim open to question still....

Well said. Raising a valid point that always somehow escapes the notice of some others. You articulated that rather well, although the answer to the "chicken and the egg" riddle is obvious. Wellll....To me at least. I've found that observable truths are not always observed.

Pot smokers are all lazy pukes?

Carlos7. Try different bait.........;-} that bait you're using isn't even old and rotten anymore. It doesn't exist.

Your comment is rather ambiguous as it doesn't specify to 'what' you refer.

Author's Note: although Jesus never specifically condemned it, I think wearing snow boots with your mini skirt after Easter is a sin. But that's just my holistic interpretation of the Scriptures. What's true for this author may not be true for you.

I have an old friend named Don who graduated from college twenty years ago. He has tried every get rich scheme in an effort to retire early and enjoy the good life. Now that he's in his forties and has nothing to show for it, he's decided to take the biggest shortcut in life: he's joined the Democratic...
