Yeah, you do. You have the right to expect me not to find you and beat the hell out of you for no good reason.but I have no right to dictate what others can or cannot do with their own bodies
Except when you use that body in a way that endangers others. You don't have that right; that's why there are laws punishing misbehavior.You own your body, and thus you are free to do with it as you will.
Impairing your judgment is fine. If it affects me, I have the right to stop it. We outlawed pot because stoned people are idiots, and idiots get themselves and others hurt.
Every pot user I've ever talked to has had similar experiences. One hit can get some people high for hours. One joint is always enough to get someone ripped. One beer is good for a few minutes buzz for a majority of folks. There's no such thing as a light buzz with pot smokers. It's sober, or varying levels of stoned. I suppose a tiny little whiff every now and then over the period of a few hours could be compared to drinking beer, but I don't think it's fucking likely to happen in real life.
At best, I would tolerate it being decriminalized. I would never support recreational legalization, because I don't want to deal with a bunch of stoned idiots out in public every day. Sober people are retarded enough.
If you haven't been stoned, you don't have a clue wtf you're talking about. There's no common point of reference, other than the universal effects of intoxication (poor judgment, slowed physical reactions, slowed mental processes, lack of inhibitions.)
It feels good. It's scary and a rush, because you don't have control. You're on autopilot, making suggestions, but with no real ability to consciously control your actions or thoughts or words. Everything important stops mattering. You're enveloped in a wonderful haze of well-being.
Try explaining the sensation of an orgasm to a virgin, sometime. There's no possible way to understand the sensation until you've experienced it.
