No immigration laws were changed in Georgia that would affect illegal immigrants' ability to work. The price of peaches went up because of a drought.

People say there's no work. Bullcrap. It's out there if you check your pride at the door. I'm 16 with virtually no qualifications or other reasons to hire me and I have a job that puts gas in my tank, food when I need it and leaves hundreds of dollars in my bank account at the end of the month. If someone like me can get a job, anyone can if you quit moaning about it

True. And people are always complaining about how "illegal immigrants take all our jobs". No they don't!! they tightened the immigration laws wayy up in Georgia I think and the price of peaches shot up because they couldn't find anyone to do the work because there were no illegal immigrants. Sorry it just really pisses me off when people use that as an excuse

Marijuana should be legal EVERYWHERE. It's been proven to help cancer patients by stimulating their appetite and suppressing nausea, and as a recreational drug, it's less intoxicating than alcohol. Agree or disagree?

Well, I know anything can kill you, but I just meant it's not feasible or possible in any standard situation. It says the LD50 is 800 mg/kg. That's a **** LOT.

A little bit of horrible and quick math. An average human adult is 100 kg. That's 80,000 mg for a lethal dose. 80 grams is way more than you'd ever be able to smoke. Around where I live, you can purchase a gram of really good cannabis for 20 dollars. Of that gram, maybe 10% is THC. Of that THC, you get maybe a quarter of it from smoking. That's a dose of maybe 25 mg from smoking a gram of cannabis. You'd have to smoke 3,200 grams of cannabis to reach that LD50. Considering that THC has a half-life of a few hours in the body, you'd have to manage to smoke over 3 kilograms of cannabis in under a few hours to get some sort of toxic effect.

In short, it's just not going to happen to anyone anytime soon.

yyyeah it can. It's not impossible, just veryyy hard to do. Practically everything has an LD50even coffeebut just because it's improbable doesn't mean it's impossible.

PROBABLY, no one will ever die from marijuana or has died from it. But, you can't say it's impossible because there is an LD50 for it.

Can too much alcohol kill you? Yes.
Can too much pot kill you? No (or it's never happened).
But pot gives you lung cancer! So do cigarettes, and marijuana can be vaporized -- no smoke, no cancer.
Is marijuana psychologically addictive? Yes. But so are alcohol and tobacco, and get this: they are also physically addictive. Pot is more of a bad habit than a physical addiction.

So we've got alcohol and tobacco, which can directly kill people...
And marijuana, which doesn't...
Hmmmm.

Provide me with a scholarly article that proves nature and nurture are 50% responsible for a person. All you did was provide an article that supports nurture effects people. You're NOT educated on the subject and you haven't shown you know more than most people. I go to college for this shit, you are wrong. Anyone in AP psych will know you can't put percentage on how much of nature and how much of nurture is responsible for how a person is. Oh look http://www.dnate.com/nature_vs_nurture/ There is a DEBATE on nature vs. nurture specifically because no one can prove the claims you're trying to make or any similar claims. Btw: your articles of twins and adopted kids more prove that it is more due to nature, not nurture of 50% of each, you invalidated yourself.

I said my psych teacher said it was ABOUT 50/50. Either way, it's a combination of both. And as I told truuninja, I really don't want to. If you're that invested, find it yourself.

I'm not lying!! I actually would send you my AP scores if there were a way to do that without you seeing my identity. I think the fact that I'm educated on the studies shows I know more than most people. Also, I'm not wrong.

Yes, I did (AP, actually). Schizophrenia is a mental disorder. It doesn't define a person's personality. Disease wasn't the right word, I meant disorder. Sorry.

I'm saying that even with psychology, nature vs. nurture
there is a possibility of finding an aspect where there isn't a mixture of both
we may not know of an aspect now
but we may very well find this aspect one day

just because we don't know it now, doesn't mean it doesn't exist

Your point exactly? You didn't say anything about it to them.

"I'm saying there might be a possibility because we don't know everything there is to know

there may be an aspect out there that we don't know or don't know about yet that includes a mixture"
