    Why is anybody posting stuff like this on MacRumors? I come here to read about Apple and Macs, not to see topics like "Baby forced to smoke cannabis and beaten." The boy shouldn't have done it. but leave news like this where it belongs. Don't bring it here.

    Indeed, I think from the top of Canada Tower (our tallest sky scraper, a mere 50 floors, but I think it'd do the trick!)

    I hope people realize that this is an irresponsible person using cannabis rather than thinking that the "REEFER MADNESS" made him do it.

    no kidding. thanks to this sick bastard, now people think pot is even *more* dangerous, when in reality, it's just stupidity that's dangerous.

    can't we bring back stonings for people like this? it would be poetic justice.

    He should be dropped from the CN Tower. The tallest freestanding structure in the world.

    Um maybe you havn't been paying attention, but this is the Current Events section, try reading the description: "mac, non-mac, news items (provide links please)"

    Back to the topic, that is a horribly stupid thing to do and deserves more than a mere four and a half years in custody, reckless endangerment of children should be dealt with much harsher. If the Govt. was ever looking for a poster child on why not to smoke weed......

    People say there are no ill effects of marijuana use...I am sure there are plenty of similar situations like this one where a marijuana user has abused and or neglected their baby.

    No, people like this need to be shot in the head so that those that live in peace can do so.

    And I am sure that there is a far higher incidence of people on alcohol abusing their babies.

    Do you think the US should return to prohibition?

    I'm just as sure there are plenty of similar situations where a non-marijuana user has abused and or neglected their baby.

    There are ill effects of marijuana abuse (cancer, etc), but baby abuse is not one of them.

    Yes.

    Alcohol ruins lives.

    So does smoking.

    Marijuana is no different from the aforementioned two.

    The proponents of those drugs are kidding themselves! What do these drugs do that are positive? Oh, marijuana can allegedly cure glaucoma, and other eye-related diseases. Great! So lets develop medicines to fight/treat glaucoma, that don't induce pseudo-psychotic breakdowns by individuals under their influence that are conducive to "reckless" acts of child abuse.

    Alcohol kills THOUSANDS every day with drunk driving, or alcohol-related domestic violence etc. Hell we as a nation have lowered murder caused by a vehicle to a mere "vehicular homicide" charge. Which is often reduced to manslaughter if the individual has a great lawyer.

    Smoking? Well how many MORE people must die of lung cancer, and how many more teens must become addicted and die young(er) before we as a nation put a stop to the stuff?

    Marijuana? If you don't know the risks of marijuana then why have you read this far? The real risk of marijuana is not even associated with the drug itself. It's born in the myth most people contain that marijuana has no ill effects.

    In and of itself that is a lie.

    I say ban smoking, marijuana use, and drinking. Nothing but death results via their usage.

    I never denied that alcoholics often abuse their children in the midst of their drinking tendencies, what I was trying to imply was that its even more sinister when marijuana is involved.

    This is due to the fact that their is a great myth that marijuana has no ill effects, while it is obvious that many people know the dangers of alcohol.

    We always hear about cocaine and crack babies, or babies born with AIDs, and yet when a "parent" abuses their kid under the influence of cocaine, or another heavy drug we are shocked! Amazed at how the individual could commit such a heinous crime as child abuse. The same goes for crimes committed under the influence of alcohol.

    Yet when the same thing happens under the influence of marijuana the only thing that happens is people say the individual was reckless.

    We never hear about cases of marijuana users abusing their kids because it is just considered child abuse.

    Just child abuse.

    That is what makes marijuana such a sinister and vile object: the fact that people think it is not so.

    Although smoking cannabis does have some dangers, they are less than alcohol or tobacco.

    Although dropping a baby on it's head can cause brain damage, in some situations smoking cannabis can protect the brain from damage (I kid you not).

    However I would venture to say that the thought that it is harmless is more damaging.
