Inspection sticker looks like Texas, which, fun fact, doesn't fail for cracks in the windshield. I've seen spiderwebbed windshields pass, and my own used to look like it was hit with buckshot thanks to TXDOT trucks filled with gravel and no covers.

teach5ci

Technically, it does say "a child's death," not "deaths of children."


CleatusVandamn

It also says associated with is vague


Uncertain_aquarian

The site (on the truck) AALM.info is a full on propaganda page blaming pot for homeless and many other socioeconomic problems that aren't related to it.


CleatusVandamn

How do these people have money to waste on this crap?


Qwearman

They don’t give to the homeless


CleatusVandamn

But homeless people need money for weed the most


Donna477

(on that aalm website. I typed this comment without specifying what I was talking about.) OK, so that car wasn't wrecked like that in an accident, it was being torn apart. I don't know the door... that's not attached but leaning up against it, just doesn't look right. If people were in that car in an accident, most likely at least one person didn't survive. I don't think anyone is going to think about picking up the car door and leaning it against the car. I don't know, the whole car looks staged to me Like it was being torn apart, but it just doesn't seem like that damage is all from an accident. Though the roof does look kind of like it was peeled opened with a can opener, is that how the jaws open cars? I'm focusing too much on this, "SHUT UP, DONNA!".


Donna477

You have a point, it says associated with a child's death, maybe there's more MJ found in homes with deceased children than any other drug. Being in the vicinity is 'associated' with, isn't it? I don't even smoke pot, it gets me too high. I did other, stronger drugs, but for me, the pot was the one that got me too high. Pretty much anything else, but the marijuana gets me too 2 high. But I'll still defend it! (yeah that's my point).


CleatusVandamn

Its a stupid misreading statement like "79% of juvenile delinquents chew gum" but it turns out 79% of all children chew gum. But then again I doubt they thought that hard about it and just made up a lie and assume its fine to lie about it.


i-dont-wanna-know

Pls explain what is the difference between pot and marijuana? Because where I live they are either the same or pot is slang for weak marijuana but people cant make up thier minds


jefffrater1

Where I live they are the same.


AnotherSoulessGinger

Well, when the kids go into the foster care system because their parents are irrationally jailed for having a plant… it’s not always great.


WifeofTech

That's my thought as well. Maybe somebody dropped a shipping crate of marijuana on a toddler?


Karloz_Danger

See, they didn’t specify which child when they “a child’s death,” so it could technically be true for a single case


Necessary_Contingent

The funniest part of living in a country that has legalized weed is the time passing with none of the fear-mongering predictions the conservatives ran on coming true. Some of them acted like the world was going to end if cannabis was made legal but the worst fallout was boomers going to hard and calling 911 lol


Uncertain_aquarian

Lol yeah this was driving up and down the main drag of my small texas town all day yesterday. The gas did more damage than the potheads in town. Not to mention all the tweakers they should be getting off the street but are seemingly ignoring to solely go after teens with weed.🤑 thats what small towns do for money.


CleatusVandamn

We shouldn't be locking up tweekers either. We should provide them with safe access and treatment if they want it. The only reason tweekers are a problem is because we decided to make what they were doing illegal. They wouldn't be criminals if we didn't make them criminals


Uncertain_aquarian

Tweakers out here steal everything off of people's front Lawns you can't have anything in this town. The methheads out here are scabs. So yeah get them help but if they steal my shit they going to jail for stealing not the drugs.


CleatusVandamn

They wouldn't be stealing your shit if meth wasn't illegal. They'd be at home overclocking every thing they owm


Uncertain_aquarian

I feel like that's a matter of opinion and don't want to get too deep into that but I understand where you're coming from and appreciate these conversations giving me new perspective. I have just known people personally who do not fit the "get them help" agenda when it comes to hard drugs.


CleatusVandamn

I used to work with this guy who was a hard-core alcoholic and everyone would talk all kinds of shit about it. But I didn't see a problem, he took the subway to work and didn't hurt anyone and got his job done. As far as I was concerned he was living his best life. People should just mind their own business and his business was being shit canned by 10am. If he was gonna drink himself to death that's his problem until then good for him.


UnkleRinkus

It's a matter of logic. If we make meth and heroin illegal, they become much more expensive, so people have to steal catalytic convertors to get their drugs. Legalize them and sell them in a regulated manner for close to the cost of production (about 2% of illegal market cost), and they will just get high. Meth heads aren't stealing because it's fun, they do it to get drugs (and stay alive, which is another issue). Make the drugs cost 2% of current, then, even if they steal to get it, they steal 2% of before. QED.

CleatusVandamn

Sounds exactly like what they said about Marijuana


MrFuqnNice

What? Wow you don't really grasp what happened? No, it's about access for individuals who NEED IT, not recreational users like we have now. Hence Medical laws vs. Recreational laws. Real proponents argued against legalization for this very reason. In the end it's all about tax dollars. It's about taking it out of the hands of the dealers and putting it into the state. They could care less about the real issues.


CleatusVandamn

War on drugs really brain washed you. I'm sorry


MrFuqnNice

Typical no brain, no information set of responses. You need to do some research. War on drugs lol.


Thess514

Okay, so quick question - where does alcohol fit into your world view? Alcohol also impairs judgement (or in your parlance, "makes people do things they wouldn't ordinarily do"), and those under the influence of alcohol trend more towards belligerence and violence than those under the influence of marijuana. Plus alcohol is legitimately more toxic (3 on the toxicity scale to the 1 of marijuana, so you're not courting stomach, liver, and brain damage on anything like the same scale with edibles as you do with too many beers) and has no significant medicinal value as anything but a topical disinfectant. Yet that's legal and actively glorified, whereas marijuana, for all its benefits (unless you add tobacco but nicotine's a whole other thing), is illegal because of outdated scientific data and people taking Reefer Madness as gospel. Seriously, I'm curious - why is booze okay if weed isn't, under that circumstance? Or were you looking at also reinstating the Volstead Act?


MrFuqnNice

Alcohol is way worse and far more useless than Cannabis. Prohibition was done for a reason that most people don't really understand. I grew up making wine with my father, but he taught me the dangers straight away and that's probably what turned me off to it. I enjoy a glass of wine, a beer or a shot now and then but I never abuse it or use it to "get fucked up". Same with Cannabis, I was taught early on by growers that I don't really "need" it because I'm not a medical patient. I always respected that and got into the field to help actual people in need, not recreational users. Our close friends when we were in middle school we made a pact to never use hard drugs or drink and drive. I stuck to that and seen many tragedies and useless deaths along the way.


JesusChristsGayLover

Yeah I've seen that, my dad ate a pot cookie and didn't feel anything so he ate another one, thought he was going to die and just about called 911. He was 86.


Uncertain_aquarian

Oof. No more edibles for the light weight 😪


JonWick33

Not at all! I've thought about trying to get my 93 year old Grandpa Herbert to try edibles to help his stomach problems but I thought about it and Idk if Herb could handle Herb Edibles..


Korchagin

Reminds me of the German saying: "Gibst Du Opi Opium, bringt das Opium Opi um." (If you give opium to granpa, the opium will kill grandpa.)


JesusChristsGayLover

Except for of course the cookies didn't kill him. But your post makes me sad because the mixture I gave them three and a half weeks ago did kill him.


jessejamesrichard1

LOL. Half of those fear mongers are getting baked on the reg now.


redditornot02

Ironically in the USA boomers are the ones that smoke pot. Boomers are the biggest pot heads, then it mostly skips their kids (Gen X) and the beginning of the millennials. Then younger Millennials bring it back.


Dukesloshy

Boomers were at Woodstock. They ain't the ones what can't handle their weed.


Necessary_Contingent

Weed has changed a lot since then


Dukesloshy

Uh huh


Necessary_Contingent

C’est vrai


jaydenkirtawn

Also Woodstock was a gathering of the "counterculture." Most Boomers were and are not hippies.


MrFuqnNice

No it's become more accepted and legally available, bringing seeds and strains to areas that were illegal prior to legalization. There's been super strong Cannabis since day one, some peope just weren't in those circles. If anything the biodiversity in the legal arena is going to shit because *most* everyone is in it for the money so they grow high yielding producers, not super high quality low yielding plants, because hat doesn't make sense business wise. If you've been in the grow scene since the 90's you'd know they have phased out many of the best strains in favor of high yielding low % THC ones. We had access to 35% + THC, 20% + CBD in late 90's, stuff that would still blow the doors off of todays stuff. These dispensaries don't actually give you what is in their "lab tested" description and we've also proven that. They take the alpha plant and test that, meanwhile giving customers popcorn that is nowhere near what the test results resemble. Proof in this is that next to the "test results" it says "percentages may vary by 15% or more". 😆 yes so the supposedly 30% Thc is really 15% Thc. Go out and buy any of the strongest shit you can find, send it to a testing lab and see for yourself lol. Your exposure to weed has changed if you're just learning about it now.


MrCWB007

There isn’t any


Max27265

This lists the actual most common causes of death for children. https://www.cdc.gov/nchs/fastats/child-health.htm And this says that only three people have been reported to have died from weed, but all are only from complications, not overdoses. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/327126#has-pot-killed-anyone I don’t know where that person got his/her “information” from, but it’s very, very wrong.


Mr_Flibble1981

Looking at the website, I think they’ve taken data on teen suicide and fatal car accidents, and I guess weed would be the most common drug used by teens in general so they’ve associated the two.

scottyarmani

Weed can't kill a baby. It's impossible to administer enough to kill any human. It's non toxic, non lethal. Simpler Google search can confirm that much


bhangmango

This is technically true but it’s a trick of speech. You can make even real numbers say anything if you phrase it vaguely enough. Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug among « children » (teens). So if you look at drug use data from « dead children », marijuana will always come out on top, even though the death is completely unrelated. It actually is the most consumed drug by dead kids *because it is the most consumed drug by living kids*. It’s like saying water is the #1 drink consumed by cancer patients.

Pete Ricketts? Is that you?


nodyenova

What about crack or heroin then xDD


SolidBlackGator

Pretty sure it's just that marijuana is the most common drug. So, if a crack head, a meth head, a drunk, a pill abuser, and a heroin addict, all accidentally caused the death of their own children, and we're drug tested as a result, they all test positive for their favorite drug of choice, but also they likely all test positive for weed. So even though weed isn't the cause in any of the cases, it's the most common drug found.

Donna477

It says "a child", not children. There was a child, possibly who this person was close to, who died, because of something like his parents were lazy a'holes, who also smoked pot. They ignored him; thought it would be funny to get it high; something, most likely, along those lines. I should check the other comments first, cause someone else may have brought this up already, but there are so many other comments. That just stuck out to me immediately when I read it. "A child's". AND RIP cracked windshield, I did read some of the comments before posting.

Marijuana is bad for you though. It rots brain cells. Read this. [NHS health ](https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/cannabis-the-facts/)


Heythere23856

Nowhere does it say that it rots brain cells in this article...


chesee-on-toast

It’s genera knowledge. And I know you didn’t read the entire thing. I’m not stupid.


YourMomKnowsMyName

Not saying I agree with you or not, but if it is general knowledge why did you need a link to an article which doesn't actually say what you said it does?


chesee-on-toast

Just search it up. They generally say “we don’t know but it’s certain”.


Heythere23856

Can you show me where? I did read the whole article... when you make assumptions you make yourself look 😆.. do you drink alcohol?? Do you drink coffee?? Do you eat sugar?? If you do any of these, sorry to say but You are a druggie as well, dont judge mate


Attila0076

No need, "we don't know, but it's certain" explains it all That's an oxycontin fueled oximoron.


chesee-on-toast

Don’t drink coffee. Barely have sugar put on things.


Heythere23856

And alcohol??? Dont be a hypocrite mate, talk down on people that smoke some pot... look at yourself first before you judge the world like your some perfect angel...


chesee-on-toast

I don’t drink

Delta616

You generally have no fucking clue to what you're talking about yet continue to talk.

Yet you don’t know what you’re talking about


squicktones

The jury is still out on both counts. I did read the entire document and nowhere did it say it rots your brain. I will say it's a little surprising that there are so few citations of actual scientific sources. You know what does rot your brain and is actively marketed to children? Alcohol.

smuglator

Everything you say leads me to believe you are. If you read your article you'd know it was inconclusive. If you did you certainly didn't know how to process the information in it. And the best argument (according to your own ranking of arguments) is "we don't know but it's certain". And that is, if you realize, an argument against your statement that it "rots brain cells". It is unreal. I must say. That is really stupid. It's like a defendant in court trying to use their fingerprint on the murder weapon as a defense. "look, my fingerprints are on the murder weapon, therefore I didn't murder the victim!". Lucky for you, stupidity is fixable. If you want to better yourself of course.

Unlucky for you, doing drugs is not fixable for your health.

As expected. You won't make the right choice.


chesee-on-toast

As expected, you have no healthy lungs.


smuglator

By strike of luck, you're right. I have allergic bronchitis. It's a pain because I'm unable to smoke pot due to it.


dubble_chyn

Sugar is awful for you. We should make that illegal too.


FederalDerp

sugar doesn't affect brain cells though. in fact, sugar is necessary to survive (in the form of glucose). marijuana on the other hand causes brain shrinkage. I only see it as worthwhile in cases where it is actually useful. shouldn't be fully legalised, but should be more easy to get prescribed by doctors.


Macdonelll

Cannabis is unequivocally safer than both alcohol an tobacco, if society deems adults fit to decide if they intake those substances, it is absolute lunacy to say weed should be illegal.


FederalDerp

I dont feel either of those should be legal either, having had bad experiences related to them.


chesee-on-toast

Correct, we need sugar to survive. We don’t need cannabis.


JesusChristsGayLover

Well do we really need alcohol? Maybe we should have a prohibition or something?

The_Drinkist

Do you have a source on this? This seems statistically improbable given the relative popularity of alcohol, but I guess plausible since weed is also pretty popular. Of course, it’s hard to draw a causal line between trying weed in college and suffering the death of a child in your 40s, but it’s a curious claim.


Mr_Flibble1981

I’m just guessing what sort of weird survey they could have used to draw the conclusion on the truck. It looks to me like someone has found a link where there isn’t one.
