Give me a break. That was a laughable post. You have a better chance asking a random downtown for Coke than asking your pot dealer.
lol this x999999

why would anyone who deals coke and molly waste their time with weed? weed is the drug with the lowest profit margin, coke + molly smell much less and easier to deal (portable, etc).

in addition, if you were just dealing weed most people wouldnt start dealing coke and other shit like that because it involves a whole new set of sketchier clientiele and wholesalers

looks like someone needs to take an econ 100 class

You wouldn't get high, but you might get dead. I'd probably consider that an alteration in your state of consciousness.

Please view my arguments from the previous page:

When people compare acetaminophen and weed or ibuprofen and booze, they're making a mistake by conflating [medicinal] drugs and [recreational] drugs. Medicinal drugs have been specifically designed, often over several generations or iterations, to produce an exact medical result. The reduction of inflammation, the reduction or elimination of pain and so on and so forth. When it comes to over the counter medications, this difference is quite clear. When it comes to prescription medications, however, the differences become more negligible.

Percocet, methadone, codeine and other medicinal drugs can be taken or used recreationally. This makes them no less effective as medicinal drugs, but does cause people to have the line between the types of drugs blurred and results in the kinds of arguments we are seeing here.

While Tylenol is a legal drug of which you can consume as much as you like, it is also completely controlled. The companies who produce it are strictly regulated and licensed and monitored. The chemical components that are used to make the drug and bind them together into the pills and caplets that you take are equally monitored and regulated.

The question is not whether or not people will get high. People will get high from legal recreational drugs, illegal recreational drugs, or even legal consumer products that aren't supposed to be used in that way (gasoline, compressed air cans &c &c). The question is how we can manage to have as few people addicted as possible, and to reduce the risks to those people as much as possible--if for no other reason, then simply to reduce the strain on the medical system for the rest of us.

I agree with your post. Just hate when people disregard the danger of "safe/harmless" medicinal drugs.
