Who pays depends on the costs. The costs associated with medical is passed on to all of us in the form pf higher insuance premuiums. Not to mention that ER cases tie up resources and services that will be less available to other cases. Lowered productivity costs businesses and of course they pass those costs onto us. It contributes to higher taxes for revenues necessary to deal with the consequences of substance abuse. That's just off the top of my head.
The fact that we all pay higher premiums due to drug use is partly due to drug use being illegal. Insurance companies will charge selectively higher premiums for cigarette usage, so cigarette use doesn't make everyone's premiums go up, just smokers. They could do the same with marijuana use if marijuana use was something people would readily admit, as it is illegal it is something that they cannot rely on people to accurately self report.
I actually tried this, but my thumb slipped and accidentally activated FaceTime, and it was like fucking myself. Sure, I came almost instantly, BUT AT WHAT COST?
I should note at this point via t because i know a lot of your legal names at this point i think of you in those terms. Notable exceptions are nigel phox cainad eve and dimo. Dimo because he insists on it phox nigel cainad and eve because those are great names.
I respond to "Nigel" just as well as I respond to my legal name.
This, at times, creates amusing situations that confuse everyone.
And yet you've been here for 170 pages.
FTR the Godwin thing is probably the saddest thing you've posted. I mean stella's squicky stuff is pretty sad too, but I've never really had much respect for her, you I did.
Oh wow! Did you really just go Godwin ITT?
And because there's a perverse pleasure to be derived from watching someone slowly unravel when that person is in a position to actively support policies that make the world a worse place.
I don't think he's unraveling, he really does buy his own BS.
But that IS the part that keeps me from running screaming from this giant sludge pit of fecal matter contained in this thread. Even though I'm getting an image of the shit-foam that's starting to be a hazard at hog factory farms.
(yeah, that stuff, it apparently causes shitsplosions)
It's not just the believing of his own foamy shit, but that he has the ability to help keep things in the current, fucked-up fashion that they are.
...Also finding it interesting that what he did was to argue against putting drug legalization to a popular vote.
Apparently the citizenry of Maine can't be trusted to vote for what's in their own best interest.
