    People put harmful doughnuts in their body because they are addicted. On the one hand, you need to lose weight, but on the other hand doughnut.

        That chart covered the 'harm' caused by all drugs, so what's the problem with it?

        It doesn't pretend to 'weight' the study by amount used, only the harm caused using numerous criteria. Legalized or not.

        The source is credible and respected, but it doesn't support whatever argument you're trying to make, so you simply dismiss it.

        Something you do often.
        You're not considering legality and availability of all drugs which is why booze is so high on the list.

          Because decriminalization doesn't equal legalization. There is no whole article there, that's a preview for a paid piece.

          If you want to turn your country into an open air market, then go ahead for push for legalization. If you want an idea of what that would look like, go hang out at 23rd and Lawrence.

            Show me evidence of doughnut addiction. You obviously don't know what chemical addiction is. No surprise, potheads tend to have that problem.

                    • You're confusing behavioral issues with chemical addiction. There's a reason you're posting a single study as opposed to the scientific consensus agreed upon by anyone in the field with an ounce of literacy about the chemically addictive qualities of things like alcohol, etc.

                      Google "cannabis dependency." It's not as addictive as booze and one of its side effects is permanent brain damage after prolonged abuse.

                        Is this your problem?

                          • Both pot and sugar use result in mild chemical dependence. We're talking very mild mood changes, etc. during the "withdrawl" phase. In neither case is the chemical dependence a significant barrier to ceasing use, unlike chemicals that produce non-trivial chemical dependence, such as narcotics, opiates, etc.

                            The guy who can't stop smoking blunts and the guy who can't stop devouring Krispy Kremes have the same psychological issue, not a physiological issue.

                            And the doughnuts are about six metric **** tons worse for you than the pot.
