Nemmerle;4937399How does that line up then? I dunno, go ask the cops who let em off. Maybe they were only doing 5 over anyhow.

[QUOTE=Nemmerle;4937399] You can use the same argument to justify anything. Apartheid for instance. Unless there is a good reason behind the law it should not exist.

Well there wouldnt be a law unless it was for a good reason. Its been illegal for quite some time.

Maybe its because people go out and infringe on other peoples rights when they are high instead of staying inside their homes.

Drinking is now banned at all San Diego beaches. Why? Because people wouldnt keep to themselves. They had to start fights and bother other people.

Read up on all the good reasons the government had when they first outlawed Marijuana.

Hint: You won't find any.

Hemp was bound to take over and replace many materials, which would have put alot of rich men out of business.

"Good" is a matter of opinion.

How about people driving cars and then wrecking them into other people? Or people deciding to start high speed chases with cops and then wrecking into houses and injuring the occupants?

Im pretty sure if pot is as beneficial as so many people make it seem, it would be legal by now, because cigarettes dont even seem to hold a candle to pot, but they are legal.

Could be a reason why it is still illegal.

So if they're not breaking the law in a 'serious' way then it's okay for the policeman to let them off? I mean however you cut it up the policeman clearly has some degree of leeway in when and how he chooses to enforce the law.

NiteStryker;4937489Well there wouldnt be a law unless it was for a good reason. Its been illegal for quite some time.[/QUOTE]

Well that makes it kind of hard for you to explain laws changing over time then. Returning to the issue of Apartheid since there wouldn't be a law without a good reason... Or slavery or any of the other blots on the legal history really.

The most your average weed nut wants to do is sit in his home and contemplate his music, far more people are arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

If we went by the same logic as those who ban weed alcohol itself would be illegal. I seem to remember your country tried that though and it caused a massive surge in crime - somewhat like this war on drugs thing.

You gotta go ask them. My personal opinion? Depends on the situation. I know police usually give a warning for like 5 over and a ticket for 10 over. If the flow of traffic is 75 in an area, and everyone is doing 75, including the cops, then its obviously accepted.

Nemmerle;4939409 Well that makes it kind of hard for you to explain laws changing over time then. Returning to the issue of Apartheid since there wouldn't be a law without a good reason...

[QUOTE=Nemmerle;4939409] The most your average weed nut wants to do is sit in his home and contemplate his music, far more people are arrested for being drunk and disorderly.

Ok well there is plenty of weed out there, go buy it, sit in your house, and smoke it. Whats the problem? I know it happens. You want to smoke it outside? If you give a mouse a cookie, huh.

And being outside and drunk is also a misdemeanor, im pretty sure. You get snatched up for that shit.

[QUOTE=Nemmerle;4939409] If we went by the same logic as those who ban weed alcohol itself would be illegal. I seem to remember your country tried that though and it caused a massive surge in crime - somewhat like this war on drugs thing.

Well I have a thought pattern that if something is legal for the entire history of humankind, and then you make it illegal, there will be more backlash than if you always have it illegal.

And I have not seen any "massive surge in crime" caused by the war on drugs. And frankly, im not sure why everyone keeps bringing that "war" up and attacking it. Unless its preventing you from snorting lines and that really pisses you off. :clueless:

Arnt illegal drugs illegal in alot of countries? Its not just the US that doesnt allow you to light a doobie on your front porch.
