    There are also things like the longitudinal studies. There is probably enough information in those to get some sort of an idea what smoking dope does to people. But for more nerdy detail, there is some biological data which researchers in Israel have gathered. And that could be fed to computers.

    As a parent I say untested and unregulated food / beverages / anything is a risk we shouldn’t be needing to take. Lets accept that there are some downsides but regulation can mitigate a fair amount of that. Better to know the medical risks and actively manage those.

    Im going to balk at any referendum that uses the word regulated, or tax.

    My own relevant personal experience is merely having a strong sense of having been female in my incarnation prior to this one.

    Are you just trying to be a dick, or do you really have no insight into how other people might feel about what you're saying.

    There is no unfettered right to speech, especially under the NZ legal and political system rather than the US one.

    I'm glad you said that. And in the US, you could end up dead in a ditch for saying the wrong thing.

    And another possible misunderstanding for Mark Taslov. When I said some where around the number of people born with ginger hair, are born male and female, I was meaning Intersex people. What I was doing was trying to disrupt those weird ideas that some people argue about biological this and that and God.

    Your link, which was most appropriate, also told the Youtube algorithm to offer me this:

    It’s why America was once Great. California, I mean.

    Keep an open mind.

    Not saying it's easy.

    I'm a bog standard guy, with a standard name. I drive a Toyota ute and own a small excavator. Putting myself in your shoes isn't easy, but its well worth making the effort.
