Pothead lefties better watch out for what they wish for.

The ole 'Slippery Slope' argument.
When you can't actually think of any real reason to disagree.

Remember how the Democrat States refuse to help INS and ICE enforce our immigration laws.
The Sanctuary States are telling everyone that the Racist Democratic Party values criminals over American Citizens.

Guy, they rarely arrested abortion providers when abortion was "illegal".

The problem you anti-choice nutters make is you think that before 1973, America was a happy land free of evil abortions.

Nope. Before 1973, women had abortions, doctors wrote down something else on their charts, and the only time someone got arrested is if the provider messed up and sent the woman to the hospital.

They never arrested women for having them, because no one would have tolerated that.

I seriously pray we never go back to the days where women have to resort to using coat hangers again. Those weren't pleasant times.

Beauregard is right

I smoked a joint yesterday and all of a sudden felt compelled to dance with colored people... I went up to black woman and started dancing and she slapped the shit out of me...marijuana is a dangerous drug
Try a white woman next time. She won't be able to dance, but she won't be as racist or violent.

It can't happen. The difference is that state laws prohibiting abortion would conflict with the Constitution because of Roe vs Wade. State laws regarding legalization of pot do not conflict with the Constitution.

Selling pot doesn't violate any right. Restricting abortion does.

You don't know what you're talking about.

Trivial detail. Hardly worth mentioning.

That's right. Even GW Bush when he was 25 got his girlfriend an illegal abortion. The woman was going to come forward but the GOP put a cabosh on her speaking out.

I'm not anti-abortion. I'm only pointing out the possible ramifications of states usurping the Fed.
Moron.

No, you're not. As there is a right to abortion. There is no right to not have pot sold in a State.

Completely different basis.

More rights bullshit. Rights don't involve others beyond the individual.

No, he's accurately citing the fact that abortion is a constitutionally protected right.

Pot laws aren't.

You may not know the difference but the courts certainly do.

Abortion is not a right as it involves two or more individuals. You just call it that as an excuse.

Rights are protection from government interference. Women have the right to have an abortion without the government interfering with them.

Pot laws are conflicts between state and federal powers.

Rights and powers are *not* the same thing. The conflicts you're speaking of have entirely different bases.
