You couldn't even tell if someone was skiing or snowboarding stoned. People
are more distracted when they listen to music in their helmet or hat. If you can
follow the basic guidelines of the ski code, you will not be harming anyone. Let
people stay skiing in CO, it leaves lift lines in UT open for us to get the real
snow and less bums on the hill...
Your going to ask a student from BYU regarding a marijuana topic... get real
Why is there prohibition? Doesn't that go against the concept of
'freedom' that America is supposed to protect?I
occasionally smoke, maintained great grades in college, have a great career, an
ex-Mo fiance, a rigid fitness schedule, play piano and sing daily, read daily
... As another commenter stated: The uneducated want it illegal and
destroyed. They just don't understand. Keep judging people like myself
whose life is far exceeding 'normal'.
@ Brave Sir Robin"Is that how you define right and wrong - by
how many people are doing it?"Nope, just informing you that many
already use marijuana and society hasn't crumbled. How's
@Brave Sir RobinConsidering that I have 200 words to work with,
forgive me for not being more eloquent. "So let's legalize
every behavior on earth because then crime would be zero."Victimless crimes? Why yes, we should legalize any action that does not cause
an immediate threat to another's pursuit of life, liberty, and property. It
is not the government's job to enforce morality. "So
because it's easier for kids to get weed, it should be legal? You think an
underage kid is going to say 'golly, I'm too young to buy weed...guess
I'll abstain'?"Well, this is not the only reason. Kids
can say whatever they like, but it is quite difficult for them to go into a bar
without having an ID (which has to be scanned), and it is also difficult to
purchase alcohol without a valid ID. Kids will be kids, and many will still get
their hands on alcohol and weed - but legalizing it will make it a little
harder. How's your bubble?
The sort of skiiers that go to the slopes to get stoned are not the sort you
want on the slopes.
@TheRealUYour arguments are straw men."Proabition
does not work, and leads to more crime."So let's legalize
every behavior on earth because then crime would be zero."It is
easier for kids to get weed than it is alcohol. Why? Because drug dealers
don't check IDs."So because it's easier for kids to
get weed, it should be legal? You think an underage kid is going to say
'golly, I'm too young to buy weed...guess I'll abstain'?"Bottom line, people are already using this drug..."Is that how you define right and wrong - by how many people are doing it?"...most are living a normal life."So how many
people have to not be living a 'normal life' before something should
be illegal? 1%? 5%? 10%? Remember, there are crackheads out there living a
Umm lest see -- Let's pretend I'm from New York.I'm planning a skii trip in the Rocky Mountains.I'll spend
roughly $2-5K for that vacation.Do I go to Utah where I can't
even buy a glass of wine with dinner?orColorado where I can ski the
same snow and mountains, enjoy that glass of wine, or party on all
night long?!I don't smoke pot or drink by choice, for personal
reasons, but given the choice --- where do you think thoise who do would
choose to go?And that $5,000 can be multiplied by a few million
visitors per year...NOT to mention the tax revenue.
Colorado will be great skiing, the pot heads will be stoned in their rooms
leaving the slopes free.
We all now know where Obama will be spending his ski vacations.
@CarlYeah, nobody skiing or snowboarding in Utah is ever stoned....
Just because something is illegal doesn't mean that it isn't
happening. @Brave Sir RobinFirst of all, marijuanna and
meth are MUCH different. I do not smoke marijuana, in fact, I can't even
stand the smell, but it should be legal. Proabition does not work, and leads to
more crime. It is easier for kids to get weed than it is alcohol. Why? Because
drug dealers don't check IDs. If someone wants to sit in their home and
smoke a bowl - have at it - the government shouldn't have a say. Laws
enforcing legal marijuana use would probably mirror alcohol laws, i.e. you
cannot drive stoned, etc. Bottom line, people are already using this
drug, and most are living a normal life. If we were smart, and could overlook
our own uneducated fears, we would see that there are many more benefits in
legalizing marijiana than keeping the status quo.
Isn't it the snowboarders who will be on the slopes stoned :)
@malcolmkyleSo we should legalize meth too, right?
The whole nonsense of "a disaster will happen if we end prohibition"
sentiment sums up the delusional stance of those who foolishly insist on
continuing down this horrendous blind alley. As if a disaster isn't already
happening? As if prohibition has ever worked?To support prohibition
is such a strange mind-set. In fact, It's outrageous insanity! --Literally
not one prohibitionist argument survives scrutiny. Not a single one!
They should be.
When stoned skier collide with other skiers, it will be on the news that would
cause other vacationers to reconsider their plans. Ski Utah!
