Is Stephen Baldwin running for something? At one point he indicates marijuana is a gateway drug that leads to alcohol… ummm, Really? So does that mean he is a prohibitionist? And why is it he always looks stoned… hmmm? Ridiculous.

  1. bobbo says:

    He’s born again. No plumbing the depth of that stupidity.

  2. the real billybob says:

    What’s Baldwin talking about…Gateway drug? He’s an idiot!

  3. Larry Bud says:

    Don’t you people read the bible? John 4:20 – “Thou shall not toke, or partake in the magic weed, even if it is the narliest sticky sweet shiznet you have ever encountered” Amen.

  4. McCullough says:

    #1. I wasn’t aware of that….explains everything.

  5. Zybch says:

    Bakdwin lost me at “faith based”.
    He may as well have said ‘ignorance based’, they’re both the same thing.

    Hes let himself go that’s for sure, like he inserted an airline up his ass and over inflated a few minutes too long.

  6. QB says:

    OK, when you smoke a lot of dope you feel like you’re underwater, you eat a lot, and you fall asleep. When you drink a lot, you throw up.

    I think Stephen is reacting to his brothers mixing them.

  7. QB says:

    #2 How naive are you? Everyone knows that marijuana is a gateway drug to jazz.

  8. Ah_Yea says:

    Stephen Baldwin probably SHOULD be on weed. It might mellow him out a little bit.

    “No widely accepted study has ever demonstrated a cause-and-effect relationship between the use of marijuana and the later use of harder drugs like heroin and cocaine.”

    “Because of its illegal status, cannabis users are more likely to be in situations which allow them to become acquainted with people who use and sell other illegal drugs.”

    In other words, the only way marijuana becomes a “gateway” drug is simply BECAUSE it’s illegal, and therefore exposing users to heaver drugs offered by the dealer.

    And if marijuana was legalized, this goes away. Not to mention it’s still a lot safer than cigarettes.

    Forgot the link:
    Look under “Gateway Drug Theory”.

    If you want to know more, here are a couple of excellent op-ed pieces.

  11. Kaya says:

    My reaction to the Phelps photo is the guy who took it and posted it was a jerk.

    As long as alcohol is legal then so should marijuana be. If you want to try to make alcohol illegal again fine(how’d that work out last time). Yo Stephen Baldwin “Religion is the opiate of the masses” Marx had that one right. You should go on a drinking binge with your imaginary friend Jesus. Get Jesus drunk enough and dare him to piss out Moses burning bush.

    I’m not a fan of Republicans but at least Ron Paul is not a hypocrite when you debate with him you get to discuss the issues. He should be setting the GOP agenda not Rush or Steel.

    Ok I admit I’ve never been high or drunk. I’m 48 years old and just that square but when has lack on real knowledge stopped people from posting on the web. If you want to get high or drunk fine by me just stay off the roads. Caffeine is my monkey so who am I to judge. I have driven home high friends and drunk friends and I can tell you it’s a lot easer to get the keys from someone whose high plus they are less likely to puke on your shoes.

    Why isn’t the Frito-Lay lobby in on this?

  12. denacron says:

    The regulation allows enforcement. Bureaucrats will fight its legalization. Their labor unions will appose it. It makes for a larger bureau with more power. We have times of financial trouble watch the opposition for legalization to increase – none of the enforcers want laid off.

    Enforcement – now there is a TRUE addiction tangled in with that. A type that causes much harm.

  13. Sister Mary Hand Grenade of Quiet Reflection says:

    As soon as I heard “faith based” from Steven Baldwin I knew it was time to stop listening. Can’t we all just get a bong?

  14. Lou says:

    The day I get my insight from a Baldwin. Is the day I put a gun to my head and pull the trigger.

  15. Cursor_ says:

    This issue should never be is it illegal or legal.

    These are all drugs. They are NOT meant for recreational use. That means nicotine, caffeine and alcohol.

    Education of the young to end any use of substances that train the brain to over produce dopamine is the solution.

    Dopamine is the body’s natural opiate and it should not be abused to the point where we need higher and higher concentrations to achieve that natural level.

    Humans do not need to be triggering these biochemical responses for fun. They are survival mechanisms, not a play toy. It goes back to the oldest argument, just because you CAN does that automatically mean you SHOULD.

    Paul talks about personal responsibility, but that is a smoke screen. Is he off booze and cigarettes and caffeine? I’ll bet he has a at least 1 out of three. But that personal responsibility means not overdue the booze and cigs and joe. As well as anything else like overeating, too much work, etc.

    Everything in moderation.


  16. Troublemaker says:

    Stephan who?

  17. bobbo says:

    #4–McCullough==yea, he was on some show and talked all about his conversion. I think he is also taking after his brother Alex and perhaps wanting to get into Repuglican Politics so he is buying hook, line, and sinker into supportive ideologies.

    Saying that, he strikes me as a male version of Palin. Imagine THAT ticket.

    #17–Pedro==did you read Ah Yea’s links? I didn’t but its because I don’t care if MJ is a gateway drug or not. Its too much like saying Freedom of Speech is a gateway freedom.

  18. duddits says:

    Title: Faith, as in god or government; glossary

    Phrase to be defined:
    Faith Based Conservative Perspective

    Faith Based [God] (example: religion director)
    2 strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

    Faith Based [not God] (example: movie director)
    1 complete trust or confidence in someone or something

    Conservative (in this phrase it has no meaning NULL)
    holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in relation to politics or religion.

    Perspective (result of living & learning or indoctrination )
    2 a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view

    Apparently Mr. Stephen Baldwin’s director has told him what to say. Maybe he will guest star on the TV show Dollhouse.

    Hum, maybe he has been an experiment and does not realize it. Go for jugular Ron Paul. That boy is programmed.
    -duddits [aka fairuse]

  19. Guy Fawkes says:

    Cursor_, is drug and alcohol addiction something you are born with or is it acquired as you grow up? Is it peer pressure that opens the gateway or is a tendency to become addicted to things a choice? Since you believe we are all born from the same mold and material, please enlighten us on this. I would love to what you conjure up from that fertile, yet moderate, imagination of yours.

  20. The Warden says:

    Why is this irritating cow hosting? Her voice makes me want to go kill people, it’s so irritating.

    Btw, Ron Paul is right. Tax it just like alcohol and cigs.

  21. SN says:

    marijuana is a gateway drug that leads to alcohol

    Well, if you think about it, it’s probably much easier for a young kid to get marijuana nowadays than it is to get alcohol.

  22. Hugh Ripper says:

    Its a rare day that I find myself agreeing with a politician. Pity it was such an annoying interview.

  23. bobbo says:

    #25–cotempt for reason==are you on drugs right now, or just a repuglican fruitcake?

  24. contempt says:

    #26 bobbo

    If life is so great under your new leader, why the need for escape? A valid question considering the destruction of a nation is at stake.

  25. Mr. Fusion says:

    #26, Bobbo,

    Sorry, I can’t resist this one.

    He is a fruitcake. And he has fermented himself.

  26. Dallas says:

    Stephen Baldwin is just the next person in line to audition for Republican party grooming.

    The last 12 contestants have been a miserable failure. Maybe a little star appeal will help even though his brother is the intelligent one.

  27. Mr. Fusion says:

    #15, Curser,

    This issue should never be is it illegal or legal.

    These are all drugs. They are NOT meant for recreational use. That means nicotine, caffeine and alcohol.

    I agree, even as I sit here with my second coffee of the morning. The rest of your comment will sail right over all the nimrod’s brains even though you wrote at ankle level.

  28. framecrash says:

    History repeats itself. Legalization of alcohol ended the violence associated with prohibition, so legalization of drugs might be a surprising way to try and end the drug-fueled violence currently ongoing in Mexico.

    Nothing would annoy the drug lords more than legalization of their blood-stained commodity.

  29. bobbo says:

    #30–fusion==thanks. But to the thread and your agreement with Cursor and even dipship Contempt:

    Whats wrong with drugs? Contempt for common sense says “why the need for escape?” To that I would say: why do you assume/conclude it is escape rather than a challenge? an entrance? a different beginning point? etc.

    I don’t do drugs, but still find the issues interesting. We of course do have to start with the reality that “ALL THINGS IN MODERATION” is the rule and that moderation may be more or less for any given case.

    Take Coffee. I got up to about 20 cups a day and started getting cramps, shakes, and sweats. I stopped and now do ONE cappacino every other day. Still love my Joe – but moderation.

    Many people who have (individually) done many different kinds of drugs say that “at the start” they were real good/enjoyable even provided insights. Then they overused and stopped. “Drugs.” Yes, some discrimination is necessary. Coffee, MJ, LSD, cocaine/speed may all be good in moderation from time to time.

    Other drugs should not ever be used. Like the drug that makes you lump all drugs together. Imagine the brain damage that evidences?

    Guy Fawkes stop using my posting name…

    I had it first.
