Like remember how we hear about pot is really bad and devastating and it can mess you up and you just become a completely unproductive constantly stoned waste if you use it...well yeah. Here's all the proof we need it's harmless.

I haven't gotten high all year.

...and I work full time at a job where I've recently been entrusted with training, and have never had any trouble paying my bills and have never been solicited by a collection agency so I'm not quite some stereotypical burnout either. Now let's compare this to a certain individual from Oklahoma who has never used weed and supposedly has had only one sip of alcohol...

That one person from Oklahoma has been been able to find more jobs in one year than several people have been able to find over the past four years. He's a miracle in this Obama Economy (TM).

Let's not forget that for most people, finding one job should be enough.

I would think the countless dollars wasted, dead Mexicans and imprisoned Americans serve as better testimony as to why marijuana prohibition has been an epic failure. That along with the ease with which one can nonetheless obtain marijuana.

Dock Ellis once threw a no-hitter on LSD. I presume it's safe and good too, then?

Although some people who have trouble getting marijuana are turning to much more harmful and unpredictable substances such as bath salts that can be obtained legally.

Answering the question, no. Anecdotes can only refute propaganda that are absolutist, like saying "all people who smoke pot are losers who won't amount to anything". You should know this by now, BRTD. I don't think all anti-pot propaganda is quite to that point, so you'd need more data to refute the non-absolute ones.

Assuming Michael Phelps smoked pot a few times as opposed to every day and then vigorously training for several years before the Olympics, no way.

As Dibble said, no one person debunks anything, except existential negatives or universal positives.

LSD is fine; I could way easier have a normal conversation with my parents on one tab of LSD than I could six beers deep. The only real issue would is that a hypothetical conversation would seem unbearingly long, so such a story isn't that unbelievable. 2C-E and all that research sh**t is what f's you up. #nationalsocietyofcollegiatescholars

Given his performance against Lochte, the answer is no.

A large majority of Jamaicans are Protestant, BRTD.
