    I will try to overlook the obvious pun there :)

    Opium is more prevalent in the middle east than marijuana... mostly because of the climate.

    Less people get killed for religion in the Middle east than die from the lack of religious compassion here.

    over 60,000 people will die due to no health insurance

    12 veterans a day die to suicide

    largest homeless population in the U.S. Veterans

    I guess that death is as shameful to the person as being stoned for a religious conviction as I get your pun so aptly hidden in the question.

    Many in the Middle East smoke hashish, yes.

    Practically everybody gets stoned in the West (America).

    My old boss was Kurdish and he said everyone is high in Kurdistan. He told me i smoked lawn shavings compared to their stuff. He said "the real sh** is like gold, if you touch it, it will disappear" with a dead serious look on his face.

    well, considering things like suicide bombings, the 9/11 attack and killing women for looking at a man that is not a family member. I would think that they were on drugs.

    Marijuana use is virtually the same in every country.

    but I keep hearing on Q/A that marijuana isn't such a drug to get "stoned" on.

    Just relaxes you.....

    Guess the word "dope" is over used?
