    I am trying to get this to comment 70. I am bored at work. I see you check on this everyday too. lol.

  • JOE

    Thank you for proving my point ;)

  • venom

    Joe and Gary probably get scared everytime a cop car drives by.

  • JOE

    ^^^^^SMH….Your stupidity is endless

  • venom

    @Joe

    See you are not worried about breaking the law. You should go hang out with RVD and Jeff hardy. You guys can go get high all you want and talk about how you hate the police.

  • JOE

    ^^^^BAHAHAHAHA!!! Seriously thats the best thing you can think of, calling me a drug dealer??? SMH your pathetic, if I wanted to get high does it matter if its legal or not
    ???

  • venom

    @Just Joe

    Shut up. Okay you are not a drug user, you sound like a drug dealer. Sounds like you want to get high legally.

  • JOE

    ^^^^ are you special??? So your saying people will stop robbing, rapping and killing each other?? Trust me even if they do legalize drugs, cops will still have plenty enough work to do. I dont even smoke weed, but when people like you go around acting like weed is the worst thing to happen to mankind its real annoying. Squares are more deadly than weed, hell not only does it kill the user it kills the person sitting next them.

  • venom

    A drug is a drug. If they legalize it, then they should legalize all drugs. Then we can fire all cops because we wouldn’t have a law to obey.

  • JOE

    Nice comeback venom

  • Gary

    Toadie, nicely said bro

  • venom

    @Toadie

    Chill out and go get high you pothead.

  • Toadie

    I’m not reading through all this crap… The only reason its illegal is because 1 man went on a smear campain & used biased fear tactics to force his competition essentially out of buisness… Oh yes people, the guy was in the buisness of making money off of cutting down trees & processing that crap. He saw what a threat hemp could be to his bottom line & used his political connections to squash the competition… At the end of the day, its one of only a handful of illegal substances (of which I refuse to call them drugs because, by definition, drugs are man made… as in chemically created) that are naturally found IN NATURE… Bitching about people who choose to partake in hemp (or any of its other names) is pointless because there have NEVER been any scientific studies done that PROVE it to have ANY type of side effects short of the temporary ones… Bitch about smoking weed & you might as well bitch about alcohol & tobacco… & if you’ve ever had any form of tobacco or alcohol & throw stones @ the people who smoke pot are hypocrates… Period

  • ironcross

    go smoke yourself stupid Drugs are for failures at life

  • Gary

    Duff, check out each state that offers medical cannibus, any un employment still do drug tests, and its the states chice if you can be denied even for medical cannibus… Here in indiana (it isnt legal at all) we test everyone on unemployment and if you fail, your money gets cut

  • venom

    This article is why we will probably never see RVD back in WWE.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Legalize pot so more unemployed scumbags can scam the welfare system and sit around all day so the working folk can to pay for their lazy asses.

    hey iron, why didnt u comment on the “braking my fingers and knocking my teeth out” or me being “fat” or “poor” ahhhh, no truts to what you say…come on, my 8yr old nephew can troll harder then that…

  • ironcross

  • Gary

AHAHAHAHAHAHA bro i owned 3 houses before i was 21, if u want u can google the adresses…and when i give u them, PLEASE come make me pick my teeth up and PLEASE break my fingers…..Stop acting tough over the net, it proves nothing… yawn, ty for the people who made points instead of trolling…ironcross if u like trolling, do it like venom, if not, your gna be gone…

  • ironcross

    retarded unemployed pot smokers have nothing better to do then blog about legalising it, why not contribute to society and get a job you lazy fat retards?

  • ironcross

    I dont give a fuck, gary takes it up the ass sideways by Bob van dam, you need to shut your mouth before you’re picking up your teeth with a bunch of broken fingers

  • Gary

    1000* is what i ment

  • Gary

    Venom do you understand there is a ‘group’ of over 1,00 strong of cops who back legalzing pot? do you kno 2 of the ex presidents agree with it? or how about ex head of dea agreeing that the war on cannibus is wasting money…come on, you guys need more ammo then trolling on this topic

  • venom

    RVD and Sabu are idiots. Ask that State Trooper.

  • Gary

    why grizz, please explain, Steve Jobs supported Legalizing Pot but, yep he’s a idiot…

  • grizz

    Rob Van Dam is an IDIOT and anyone that listens to him ,is too.

  • Gary

  • Kayaber

    lol@ all these people who speak on pot like they still are adhering to their 6th grade teacher telling them to “just say no”…..drugs are classified based on the effect they do to your body. Pot is not on the same level as heroin or crack. That’s why heroin n crack = felony drugs where as pot is classified as a misdemeanor drug…..

    pot has been around since the indians who smoked it in peace pipes hundreads n hundreads of years ago….people who think pot will create unemployment obviously are the sheep who just take what their government tells them at face value. I know plenty of pot heads who lead productive lives and have nice families ect……it’s called moderation and self accountability…anyone who blames pot on their laziness was lazy long before they ever started smoking.

    I bet these are the same idiots who think they are gonna live forever and be “active” 90 yr olds…lol….your all going to same place as me…pot or no pot

    SMH@ the uneducated sheep… “baaaaa”

  • Gary

    tomb you do state true points but once again, check the numbers, even people who are in accidents or cause accidents who are high are still HALF the amount (not even half) of drunk drivers…and no tobacco dont cause people to cause accidents but it does kill both the smoker and the people around them…once again Pot. coffe, cigrettes, beer, even pills… Cannibs has the lowest death over users rate then PEANUTS! i mean come on, Peanuts….

  • J-Roc

    To all ignoramus’s out there who are bashing RVD, first let me say I am not a pot smoker and never have been but I do support the leagalization of it because I know the FACTS. RVD is stating pure 100% fact. You idiots want to call pot a drug like it’s some horrible thing that will make you lazy? FACT alcohol is far more dangerous than marijuana. FACT it is not humanly possible to over dose on marijuana, unlike alcohol. Legalizing and taxing marijuana would boost the economy quicker than any dumb stimulus package the government tries to throw out there, not to mention all those tax dollars we’d save on housing all those people in prisons across the country for marijuana related crimes. It’s rediculous that marijuana is still illegal. Again this is coming from someone who is not a pot smoker….

  • WWWYKI

    Myths about Weed:
    Myth #1: Marijuana causes brain damage
    Myth #2: Marijuana is a “gateway” drug that leads to hard drugs
    Myth #3: No one has ever died from an overdoses Marijuana
    Myth #4: Marijuana is more dangerous than tobacco
    Myth #5: Legalizing marijuana would cause carnage on the highways
    Myth #6: Marijuana impairs short-term memory
    Myth #7: There are over a thousand chemicals in marijuana smoke
    Myth #8: Marijuana is highly addictive
    Myth #9: Marijuana causes crime and aggression
    Myth #10: Marijuana is very bad for your health

    also @venom if it was legalised there would be no drug dealers/gangs. Gangs came into existance during prohibition and when alcohol got legalized they moved on to heroin,crack ect.

  • adam

    WOW big suprise the biggest stoner in wrestling history wants pot to become legalized.

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    Hey it just dawned on me… Maybe all those TNA fans smoke with Rob and Jeff. Perhaps that is why they always chant “This is awesome” after a basic move.

    *BREAKING NEWS*
    TNA is up to 8mins and 30secs of wrestling!!! Tune in tomorrow to see where wrestling matters… TNA TNA TNA!

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Gary, must admit you bring up valid points but you have to admit-I do too. Good discussion tho. But alas I am done for the day. Off work now. LOL

  • venom

    Another bad part from drugs is drug dealers. People murder each other when they get ripped off. Drugs are also involved with gangs.

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Gary, Never said all the drinking and driving deaths were ok, Fact is they are definetly not ok. As far as tobacco, its not my cup of tea but at least there is not very many cases of someone killing someone else cause they were driving while smoking a cig. As for the alchohol, well they tried making it illegal once and look at all the trouble caused by prohibition. We do need stiffer penalty’s for drinking and driving. Like permanent loss of drivers license on first offense and life in prison if you kill someone drinking and driving.

  • venom

    @Gary

    RVD is a pothead. People want this stuff to get legalized so they can get high all the time. A lot of potheads bring up the medical stuff as an excuse. If drugs were legal, then we might as well fire every single cop because there will be no law to enforce.

  • Gary

    sry, my 2 other comments was dleted, but i will try it 1 more time…..

    But yet, its okay for the hudred of thousands of deaths drinkin and driving costs? if so make drinkin illegal and same with tobacco…just feel that it shouldnt be one sided against pot when other things that are legal cause more injury & death then cannibus….

  • HE GUNNN DOO IT

    Bring on the heated comments and arguements lol. Nothing will ever get done as far as pushing to make it legal because we can’t stop bickering over the issue like 11 year old little girls. One day it could be legalized, but not anytime soon. What has to happen first is that the square, spoon fed rednecks like ironcross and yo papa need to worry about what they do and stay out of everyone’s business. Trying to tell people what is right and what is wrong is is WRONG in the first place morons. Dont’t like it, Don’t smoke it. Bottom Line…

  • Gary

    thats twice a comment of mine was erased…one more time W-E, one more lol

  • Gary

    wow, W-E we erasing comments now, I replied but it seems i made someone angry with my facts…smh I didnt troll or even curse anyone out and yall delete my comment? but yet people curse and troll and they comments stay…hmmmmm sumone at W-E doesnt like the truth…

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    @Gary, Dont hate on you, You are entitled to your opinion but I must say you are wrong about it never causing death. I do know of instances where people have been killed in an accident because of someone under the influence of pot.

  • Ho Lee Schitt

    @ironcross you truly are uneducated you dumbshit

  • Gary

    never said none of those drugs should be legal, but compare things that are legal to cannibus, Asprin causes death, Peanuts cause deaths, Tobacco causes death and so does drinkin, but yall are down for austin to come to the ring and down aa few beers but its wrong for people to smoke cannibus? Now to speak to the ‘RAGERS’ ONE BY oNE

    @venom
    1ST, Where does it say matt had cannibus in his system? from ‘what i hear’ Matt loves his pills (legal) and cocaine… Drugs are drugs? What does Cannibus do that drinkin and smoking tobacco cause? i’ll wait…

    @ironcross
    First, Go suck a dick? wow thats how u debate something, telling someone to suck a dick, we got some homoerotic thoughts? anyway, people do ALOT of things that dangers thier life, but they cant choose to smoke cannibus because a goverment SAYS its as bad as Herion, Cocaine and meth? smh

    @Tombstonepiledriver
    so i should say anything? but you guys can come in here and flame w/e you wish and its okay…i do belive i cant post damn near anything i wish, its the internet…Now i do agree there are backwards people who want Cannibus to be legal just for money, and i agree thats sad….i just think you cant tell us is okay to smoke tobacco which is sooo deadly, drink liq, which is deadly also, BUT we cant touch cannibus because…welll….no real reason has been givin, the truth is, they cant control it, if pot became legal it will kill the tobacco industry, kill alot of other industries also (Hemp creates some of the best products out there, ask henry ford)

    But, I want it to be known i dont hate or rage you guys for feeling what you feel, just open your mind alil….

  • Tombstonepiledriver

    It is legal for medical purposes so your comments about what it cures is stupid. Legalize it? Whats next? Guess you will want to legalize cocaine, heroin, crack and meth? But just think of the revenue it would bring to the states. Dumbasses it should and will stay illegal.

  • venom

    Maybe that is why everybody in TNA smokes pot. Since TNA is like cancer, if everybody smokes then it will go away.

  • ironcross

    Lmao @ curing cancer, retards like RVD dont have cancer and he smokes it for non medicinal purposes so go suck a dick

  • venom

    @Gary

    Yea, dumb ass. Say that to Fatt Hardy who has been driving while high. Drugs are drugs. There are reasons why the are illegal. I lost respect for RVD. These potheads are stupid for wanting their drugs to get legalized.

  • Steve

    I have no respect whatsoever for RVD. None.

  • Gary

    I guess yall didnt hear that cannibus cured 3 different types of cancer, or that after multiplie studies, only damage it cAUSES COMES FROM THE ACTAUL “SMOKING” OF IT…(WHICH ANY SMOKE DAMAGES YOUR LUNGS) DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE YOU START TRASHING SOMETHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW ABOUT…This coming from a person whos grandmother is doing the best she has ever done with cancer, BY SMOKING CANNIBUS….i rly dont see how you guys can compare this to the same drug the DEA, Herion? Cocaine? really? In 10,000 years of this plants useage their hasnt been 1 death. but yet peanuts kill 2 people a year….BAN PEANUTS!

  • Buttercastle

    Dudes a druggy, and all druggies want their stuff legalized.

  • ironcross

    Drugs are for failures at life. is why its illegal, Nuff Said

  • KILLER KABALLSKI

    @ EVERYONE:
    SMH?….What did he do to bring on such anger?I’m guessing because he banged all of your sisters’ while smoking a Fatty because he is the WHOLE F’N SHOW!!!!!!!!! lol Screw you guys RVD is awesome and @IRONCROSS: Your uneducated about pot.When you make comments without educating yourself first, You sound like a complete moron…learn the facts.

  • Rob

    Yes, take RVD’s word for it! He knows what he’s doing and saying because his career has only plummited in the past 6 years!! Douche is as older than dust and his career is more dead than hogans marriage and hes still smoking pot like a unloved teenager. Pathedic.

  • ironcross

    Explains why flog van dam is wearing his sun glasses inside, RVD Shit Fkn Show

  • ironcross

    @JIR you’re retarded Legalising Pot would help grow an already pathetic Unemployment rate, it would condone lazy retards being lazy, and crime and traffic accidents/fatalites would rise, yes lets legalise pot.. and have more deaths on the roads! retard..

  • JIR

    I don’t smoke anything but I do see the point that if you legalize it states can bring much needed income to in taxes and if you license and train professional state certified growers you will add a ton of jobs to the public my only concern is how easy it is to steal from these shops

  • V-R-A

    Don’t forget RVD got busted with pot during his WWE title run and was forced to drop it. Yes Rob, pot should be legal…Dumb shit.

  • ironcross

    TNA brings shame and dishonour to themselves everyday with talentless drug abusing hacks like this everyday, angle and drink himself stupid and get another world title reign, jeff and smoking crack and sell it and then gogo jail for it and get a new dvd and a huge face push, RVD can smoking himself stupid and get PPV matches and no body says a work to him. Obvious to me everyone in TNA is on drugs and or Alcohol

    Good work TNA

  • Jared

    I hear that Logan haha
    I like his beliefs and it should be legalized. Setting up shops like Colorado and California do now will drop the rate of cocaine, crack, and heroin. That method has been proven in Amsterdam where shops were set up and the rate of them went down.
    And plus it is very beneficial and it has been all proven.

  • Logan

    It would be a pleasure and an honor to get high with RVD

  • “The Kurt Angle Kick-Out”

    Take away the legality factor in regards to wrestling, it should be legal, period.

  • MJ

    Hell Jeff hardy didnt even get punished they are still pushing him!

  • CM Mark

    The reason it should be legal is because it’s illegal and the reason I’m wearing these shades inside is because I wasn’t wearing any. ROFL!

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    What does it matter if it is legalized? Drugs seem to be perfectly legal within the walls of TNA, no penalties unless you truly fuck up like Jeff. Any performer can just go to Orlando if they want to smoke up.

  • Yo Papa

    Oh my god. What a stinkin pothead. What is the point of pot? Besides smelling bad and becoming lazy?! All the potheads I know just sit around and do nothing.
