    If you advocate drug prohibition, you cannot complain about gun control.

    I saw that story on the news last night and it "made me sick to my stomach" to hear them make MJ sound so bad. There was one student who had "adverse" effects, which the report states included dizziness and going in and out of consiousness. IMO, she was just high. The story cites the diagnosis of the student's mother, not a doctor.

    I do advocate its decriminalization. As with alcohol, I don't use it because I don't like its effects on me.

    I think that's the main thing at work here.

    Calling them woosies because of how they reacted to a drug they did not choose to take? Woo, you're so cool!

    Its not like the brownies were laced with anthrax. The symptoms of THC could very understandibly overwhelm someone the first time they use it, but there is no way to overdose or cause any significant damage to your body by simply ingesting the drug.

    If the students had managed to pump a bunch of caffeine into the brownies, this wouldn't even make the news even though the effects would have been equally detrimental to the other students.

    Those kids are jerks. That being said for some it would be a pleasant surprise, others not so much. It was probably anxiety that sent em to the hospital. Ingesting it is a bit different than smoking it. Legalize it, tax it, and free up prison cells for real criminals who are being released back into the streets.

    My brother was an addict and was trying very hard to go clean. Does anybody have any idea how hard it is get clean when someone sneaks stuff into your food "as a joke"? It cost him, it cost him big.

    If it's legal, it gets taxed like everything else. Big government needs big money to spend.

    Like Peter Tosh and Bob Marley said - "legalize it, don't criticize it."

    No one is advocating its use. But, I agree that it's hard to be pro gun law and pro pot law at the same time. Bud doesn't smoke itself, and let's face it-- some of those idiots who give us legal owners a bad name might chill out a bit if they had a brownie or two.

    More importantly, you could grow your own. Regulated weed would just be loaded with chemicals and pesticides

    I was once, a very long time ago, young. I was also, near the same time, a college student. IMHO, college pranks are still as enduring & heart-warming as they have always been. Has the world become so judgmentally intolerant & society so prudishly stern that we cast stones at the questionable deeds of reckless, creative & intelligent not-yet-adult males? Young men from 17-20 years old have ALWAYS done stupid things. I'll bet, in ancient Rome, horses & chariots were stolen from prominent citizens so their young male "college students" could get themselves to where (anywhere) there were women & mind-altering substances. This type of behavior is recorded in the history of EVERY society & in EVERY age. It doesn't matter the level of zero-tolerance legislation, prohibition or societal outrage. No one died. Good!

    "Laced" is one thing. Doped something else. And heavily-laden, something else entirely. If indeed some folks were going in and out of consciousness (which might simply be a euphemism for getting sleepy), it's safe to say that a few gotta look to their brownie habits. While the two druggies press their case, that is.

    Bummer that the choice was made to not inform the people of what they were about to eat, so they could at least have the choice to consume drugs or pass on the idea. Strange, that the "bakers" thought that unknown drugging of others was acceptable. I guess UC Colorado doesn't have a class on "Drug Your Classmates 101."

    Anybody got a light?

    Marijuana is a lot stronger than it was in the 60's when Alice was baking them up in her restaurant. The problem here is that the people didn't know they were getting high. If I suddenly became dizzy and started passing out I might think I was having a stroke or who knows what. I would be very scared. I completely understand them going to the ER.

    I think legalizing MJ use is big mistake. The law of unintended consequences is going to come into play.Obviously many people disagree and will defend drug use... so be it.
