All things which are vices tend to precede other immoral or evil habits or practices.

Arthur, that really makes me sick. Drugs are really a disease in our society. I use cannabis for Glaucoma. It works. I have friends who use it recreationally. None of them, even their dealers have ANYTHING to do with meth, cocaine, crack, Ecstasy/Molly or any of that. I know three independant (not state regulated) pot dealers in town. They forbid anything NOT cannabis-related.

All three of them are outstanding individuals! Their clientel are quiet, courteous, patient and considerate. I have not met one person I'd label a "druggie". Dozens of people! No loud music. No drama. 13-15 people were at one guy's place and I did magic for them! That was a treat!

I imagine there are less than savory drug-users here in town. I don't know them though. Every once in a while I hear about a bust. But that crap Arthur is putting up with...yow! I don't know what I'd do. That...just sucks... Smile

Two of the oldest of vices are gambling and drinking. They've been the doom of many a poor boy...

So how's the bar and gambling business going, tommy?

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

THE DUBLIN PENNY JOURNAL.


SO thousand times, whereas the atoms concerned in pro-
ducing the phenomena of nature, are doubtless millions
of times less than the smallest object whieh can be seen
with the naked eye." .

Odours are capable of a much wider diffusion, if we
are to ascribe their action to the radiation of atoms, and
not. as many suppose, to any affection of the medium by
which they are surrounded. A single grain of musk has
been known to perfume a room for the space of twenty
years.

And a piece of wire gilt with eight grains, or the six-
tieth of an ounce of gold, may be drawn out to a length
of 15,000 feet, the whole surface of it still remaining
covered with gold.

A grain of gold may be beaten to cover So square
inches, which is then only the hundred-thousandth _ part
of an inch thick ; and still it maintains all its qualities as
gold.

If a grain of gold be melted with a pound, or 5,760
grains of silver, and a single grain of the mass be dis-
solved in diluted nitric acid, the gold, though only the
5761st part of a grain, will fall to the bottom and be
visible ; while the silver remains dissolved in the acid.

A grain of silver may be beaten till a microscope shows
3000 distinct parts; if one of these be then dissolved,
it will tinge 18,000 grains of water; a grain is, there-
fore, divisible into 18,000,000 sensible parts !

A pound of cotton has been spun so fine, that it would
extend 168,000 yards, or 25 miles.

A quantity of vitriol being dissolved and mixed with
9000 times as much water, will tinge the whole; conse-
quently it will be divided into as many parts as there are
visible portions of matter in that water.

If a candle be lighted, it will then be visible about two
miles round; and, consequently, were it placed two
miles above the surface of the earth, it would fill with
luminous particles a sphere whose diameter is four miles,
and before it had lost any sensible part of its weight.

It is not, however, to be hence presumed that the space
is filled with luminous rays, for rays of light travel
200,000 miles in asecond, and 20 per second produce con-
tinuous vision. Hence, if we divide the circumference,
12 miles, or 7,200,000 tenths of an inch, there will, at
one time, be but 1,440 rays emanating from the candle,
so as to produce distinct vision two miles distant in every
tenth of an inch.— The effect of odours may be similar.
Indeed, a candle fixes oxygen while it parts with light.


Gambling

The fashionable absurdities in these matters are equally
amazing and dcsiructive. Do not we see men passing
their best hours, and their prime of life, in these scenes
of folly, whose rank, fortune, and natural abilities, might
entitle them to the highest offices in the Commonwealth?
Degrading themselves to the low level of professed game-
sters, and herding with these, as their chief intimates,
their bosom friends : blind to every kind of merit, but
that of the learned artist, whose boasted qualification is,
that he is both able and willing to ease them of the use-
less burthen of an estate. Yet, fond as they are of this
mad extravagance in theory, the practice of it is attended
with the most consummate misery. As the tide of for-
tune ebbs, at least, as often as it flows, so the sad reverse,
to which every adventurer is exposed, awakens by turns
every gloomy and accursed passion of the soul. Here
we may often see a numerous assembly of both sexes,
chained down by the magic of the fatal circle ; the sor-
cerer seated triumphant in the midst, with his instrument
of deceit before him ; at length the spell begins to work,
and the engine of falsehood is put in motion ; the en-
chanted crowd stand fixed with anxious eyes and beating
hearts, till, in the end, fate proclaims the magician victo-
rious ; who, by secret and unsuspected arts, hath conveyed
the wealth of his followers into his own pocket ; leaving
them nothing in return but the just reward of grief and
■vexation, indignation and remorse. Here one may often
see the fairest faces dimmed with envy, or kindling into
rage ; .by turns distracted with the tyranny of every vile
affection ; squandering those fortunes, which their provi-
far other hopes and expectations ; setting to the hazard
the very means of their future support — Here, then, be-
hold the wretch completed 1 Surrounded by a train of
inextricable miseries ! bis fortune vanished beyond re-
demption ! He cannot work ; and to beg he is ashamed :
he hath disgraced his ancestors, and ruined his posterity :
behind him he sees nothing but guilt and shame ; before
him, nothing but misery and despair. What then remains,
but that he throws the last fatal dye for eternity, and con-
clude the horrid scene by a halter, a dagger, or a pistol !
Or if his fury, horror, and despair, break not forth upon
himself, they are sure to discharge themselves on his fel-
low-creatures. His intemperate wants call aloud for era.
tilicatioi); and force must restore what folly deprived him
of. Hence the spirit of violence hath gone out among
us, and the land is filled with robbery and murder.


The common gaming house is doing well but the bar is not doing so good.

If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

When I moved into my neighborhood I soon discovered that the place across the street was a full time grow house.

No problems, no crime, no late night riots etc. Due in no small part to the fact that it was a legal and regulated facility.

Due in no small part to the fact that we have legalized drugs there will now be far less unsavoury characters in jail and far more on the block. And do you have a spare bedroom?

Who is "we," tommy? Washington State and Colorado have legalized regulated sales of recreational marijuana. Have they legalized drugs in addition to alcohol in Great Britain as well?

“We” Bob refers to those people who have legalised the vice, as opposed to those have not, obviously. The legalisation of this, immoral or evil habit or practice, results in more, socially or morally objectionable or offensive unsavoury characters out on the block, who would otherwise be in the prisons. Of course such people will draw all sorts of unstable and dangerous low-lifes to our friends area. Why there is no room to swing a cat without hitting an unsavoury character these days.

The approach to the issue that you advocate (criminalization and incarceration) has proven to be a miserable failure. Why do you cling to something that does not work?

Your mistake is thinking that I advocate criminalization and incarceration.

Haven't we been through this before?

Marijuana is bad because tommy says it is. Case closed.

How dare you people state your opinion and cite your statistics and facts?
What is wrong with all of you?
If you need fear to enforce your beliefs, then your beliefs are worthless.
