    Why are two of the above legal but the one isn't?
    - 75000 die a year from alcohol related incidents.
    - 0 die a year from Marijuana related incidents.
    Why the hell can you drink as much alcohol as you want in America but a person can't smoke a joint without worrying about doing jail time? Simple question, please answer to the point.

    Get your facts straight and then maybe we can talk. No one died from a marijuana related incident? Really? Link please.

    What do cigarettes have to do with this? Are you claiming they are also a perception altering substance??

    Ok, since you seem to know what the number is, please provide. This is where I got my info: Annual Causes of Death in the United States | Drug War Facts

    No. But cigarettes do cause 435,000 deaths a year.

    The fact that you'd place BEER in the same category as cigarettes & marijuana explains why you are a "young lefty"...... or IOW, a fool.

    Gee, no one died from a fire, slip and fall, bicycle, bear or any number of other things not included on your list. Wonder how many people were high when they died in the car accident, were hunting with a firearm or used another drug in conjunction with marijuana?
