No denying here. I would also like to understand what long term effects alcohol has on the brain as well in comparison.

If there are equally bad mental health problems associated with use of both substances, then we can come to a conclusion about legalization or not of any mind altering drug - including those things that are currently legal most places. Once we understand the relative impacts - we can make better decisions rather than coming to a conclusion about a single substance in isolation.

That is science.

Comment Fidel Castro reverted before he died (Score 1) 3

I'm convinced the reason the Pope doesn't say much about his meeting with Fidel last year, is because it's protected by the seal of the confessional, and that Fidel made a good confession before he died.

I'm equivalently convinced he ain't in heaven yet. His "room" in purgatory is going to be a busy place over the next several millenia, as everybody who was ever hurt by him is going to be getting an interview in the afterlife. In serial.

Finally, a good point made on a right wing talk radio station this morning. Fidel had three great accomplishments as dictator: He improved health care, education, and housing on the island of Cuba. He also had three great failures: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

I block all their tracking and ads, even the ugly brown embedded ones (or were they rust coloured? Don't recall) but still want to support the site. If enabling ads is the only way, then they lose. Ad trackers will not be allowed.
