Sarge, I've said many times.

Marijuana should legalized. It's safer than alcohol and there aren't the angry side effects.

A perfect example of the detrimental effects of marijuana.

Because I don't believe like you. Thank god I don't. Have a great day. < :-)

Before urinalysis in the military became fashionable again, the US statement would've said 2 1/2 pounds of Mary Jane had been found.

At least the huntin' expedition backed four bad guys, too.

You might think your being witty but your a heck of a lot closer to the truth in that statement than you would ever think.

No sail, you are engaging in the same ridiculous concept that the few defines the many. You may as well say that Boy Scout camps are the same as terrorist training camps because they both use the word "camp".

Oh, I thought it meant "terrorist training camp" cause you know, they have had madrasa since ancient times. Never mind the kindergarten age kids there. The dynamite they strap their chest is all construction paper and crayons.

Helter Skelter, that I agree with.

But I'm not for marijuana within 1000 of schools. So I'm not pleased hearing about schools being used to warehouse mnarijuana. < :-)

Yes, a madrasa is a school and a school is a madrasa.

Man, some people JUST HAVE to believe in monsters. Disprove the existence of the boogey man, and they move on to something else.

sarge: " Smoking it wouldn't end the war, but it would slow down Afghanistan's reconstruction."

School? may be they are refering to 'madrasa'

Yes, a madrasa is a school and a school is a madrasa.

Getting the Taliban high would end all these Jihad's. But then you'd have to start showing way more cartoons on TV and ship in tons and tons more snacks.......I'd much rather see the Afghan grow Ganga than Opium..... Afghanistan's tourism market would explode.....

"Come to Kabul! Cuz you know you wanna get high!"

In other news, students in California applying for the 2009-2010 school year in Afghanistan.

School? may be they are refering to 'madrasa' more harmful than marijuana. Anyway, Afghan does not have Oil Fields and they need income. If there is market for marijuana let them....grow.

But as the U.S. and other Western nations have tried to help Afghanistan stamp out its poppy fields, an increasing number of farmers have turned to marijuana, which is receiving less attention from authorities.

I would say good news from Afghanistan. But of course the authorities can't see it that way. I am sure everybody was careful not to stand too near the bonfire while they "destroyed" the stuff.

What they need to do is get the Afghans to smoke it rather than sell it. That would promote some peace.
