If it feels so great why are you insisting there are all these one time users that won't touch the stuff for fear of getting caught? Especially when the chance of getting caught is so low. I never said one should have a different stigma than the other. The simple reality is that it does. Pot shouldn't have a worse stigma than alcohol. The reality is that it does. Same as with coke and alcohol. Sure, and look at things now. Far fewer people are recereational drug users comparing then to now and the legality of the issue didnt change at all. The stigma is what changed. The legal negativity of absuing the substance hasn't changed in that time. The negativity associated with the substance itself has and as ar result there are fewer users. But who is really likely to use it? The peopel that already are of course in which case legality is irrelevant. Then there's the people that tried it once but decided their not trying it again because it's not legal. I would find pretty naive to believe there are many people in that group. Lastly there's everyone else who has simply heard about the stuff. You can count me in that group and you can tell me how great it is til your blue in the face, I have zero desire to try it, legal or not. Why? because of what I have been exposed to. All I know about coke is that apparently it feels good to use. I also know it's pretty easy to misuse, can drain you financially, can cause your nose to cave in, and generally fuck your life up. Given those negatives the negativity of going to jail for using it is a non-factor in my decision. If I'm the most naive guy on the block as you imply obviously everyone else can impart a lot more logical reasoning than little old me is capable of and will come to the same conclusion I have about using coke a lot faster.
