Marijuana prohibitionists inadvertently introduce MJ users to harder drugs
People who advocate for the prohibition of marijuana and allow the current federal laws to exist are helping drug dealers up-sell more severe drugs and services. Any business that offers more than one type of product or service will up-sell their services when a customer is considering a purchase. It is a widely used form of marketing not only in legal business practice, but illegal business practice as well. Thus, all who oppose MJ legalization, are in fact helping introduce people to crack, meth, heroine, guns, chop shops, and any other form of illegal practice that may be offered by the black market.
I am not suggesting that legalizing MJ will put a stop to sales on the black market. The black market will always exist. But considering that marijuana is one of the most popular substances people purchase on the black market, and it is relatively benign, I think it is a safer alternative to legalize marijuana to reduce the number of people who are introduced to harder substances and more severe criminal activity.

True. That and the legalisation would take a huge chunk of money and power away from the dealers and cartels. Especially when you consider the fact that, as of 2012, 55 percent of Americans use marijuana recreationally.

This video does not debunk that plants are sentient. All these people have faith that brains generate preference and self awareness. That is still very much up for scientific debate. Unless these people are all neuro-biologists with documented research, there opinion does not matter.

I will say, they make good points on less plants being harmed if less animals were bred for consumption.
Aside from that, there is still a large possibility brains aren't needed to discern bias which can also be considered a self aware consciousness. AKA Sentience.

And as for plants not responding as was said at 5:48, a Touch Me Not responds to touch instantly via chemical reaction after being touched.

Aside from all that, these arguments foundations lay on the idea that "plants aren't sentient because they can't feel pain". Some people can't feel pain, does that mean they aren't sentient?
Sure the obvious difference is people have a brain, but the obvious similarity between people and all living organisms is that we have likes and dislikes. The ability to harness that decision should be considered consciousness IMO (not that it matters). I'm not advocating for pro plant rights, but I do like scientific facts.

I don't care about the vegan movement. I see everyone feasting on beef and chicken flavored insects in the distant future.

Say to somebody "you look good today" after an initial greeting. You never know what type of good fortune those four words can bestow upon someone and the people they normally interact with.

Why is it a law that people wear seat belts?
Any other safety issue on any other product is usually the manufacturers liability or the operators liability.

I can understand that it's probably cheaper to have police pull people over for not wearing seat belts, rather than treat the conditions of people who are in accidents without seat belts.

OTOH, wouldn't it be cheaper to hold manufacturers accountable for making cars under par to current safety mechanisms? To some standard they are regulated, I'd agree. I presume they may be under regulated in certain aspects.

Is there something wrong with the idea of creating cars that won't ignite if the seat belt is not locked and taught?
