    Is that good enough proof around here?

    Archangel just made up things out of thin air in an argument earlier and uses himself as the source of information. That is very cheap.

    Hobbit has a habbit of doing the same. His source is always someone he knows.

    Do people around here actually buy those cheap cop outs?

    Archangel, I'm calling you out. You claim that marijuana causes more fatal car accidents than aclohol and that it is more addictive than nicotine. I say they are both lies. In this digital age we live in you should have no problem finding credible sources to prove me wrong. Go for it buddy.

    42.7 percent of all statistics are made up.

    The point is that there is absolutely nothing to back his claim. It's a known fact that alcohol causes many accidents. Marijuana may impair you somewhat but not nearly as much as alcohol.

    Of all the people I helped scrape off the road late at night (late being after 12pm) all were due to alcohol.
    I don't remember any pot problems.

    Exactly. I live in a town where there is quite a bit of drinking. I can promise you there are plenty of accidents caused by alcohol on a daily basis and I have yet to hear of any fatal accidents caused by someone who was high.

    Since your question and premise don't make logical sense; aren't logically honest, you should re-name this thread:

    "Does Pot Cause more fatal car accidents than Alcohol?"

    Well I was just pointing out that people have a tendency to just make things up and feel that it is appropriate proof in a debate. I don't believe that to be true. The topic is already being discussed on another thread but if you would like to address the topic on this one then that's fine. I'm not editing the subject of the thread however. Sorry.

    That is simply not true. It's much more accessible for underage kids than alcohol is. And it certainly isn't difficult to come by if you are a regular smoker.
