Coming from a family of alcoholics, here is my statement!! I'd would had much rather had my Dad smoked pot than drink!! The abuse the alcohol caused in my childhood scared me for life. I believe alcohol is evil!! I don't think my Dad would had beat my mother, my sister, or me if he had been smoking pot. He might had laughed with us and played with us, instead of cussing, hitting, and demeaning everyone he knew. He may had eaten the food instead of throwing it on my mother.
I don't believe there's as much violent when pot is involved. People usually don't get mean on pot. They are less likely to hurt people with their words.
Each addiction has an affect, but each addiction is a choice. I believe pot is the lesser of two evils.
I do not smoke pot, but as a teen I did try it, so don't think I'm a pot head. I just know what alcohol does to a family!! Just because alcohol is legal doesn't make it right!!

    Blog: Can we please fix the Oscars?

    Summary:  Fun facts: The first-ever Oscar ceremony, held in 1929, ran a brisk 15 minutes. By contrast, the longest was in 2002, clocking in at a monstrous 4 hours and change. As usual, there are things I loved about it and things I didn't. Rather than be snarky or complain, I'll offer a few suggestions on how the organizers might bring the show into the 21st century.

    Winter storm drama

    Athens-Clarke County police officers responded to Pinewood Estates North on a 911 call concerning a heated domestic dispute. it reportedly was an argument over the lack of heat and food in a family's trailer and a woman was threatening to stab anyone who tried to take away her 7-month-old child. State patrol responded also, from their post nearby on U.S. Highway 29 North. The situation apparently was resolved. An officer reported he was driving the woman and infant to another home in Athens. read more
