    So, coincidently, yesterday I watched a presentation by some old conservative geezer on this study and the first question he was asked was: how can you prove that drinking, smoking and drug using teenagers are not more likely to use Facebook and MySpace............... the idiot was floored and had no answer. It was hilarious.

    Correlation does not equal causation.

    So? Life is hard, smoke up. Now-a-days everyone knows the dangers, if they choose to do it, whatever. Make 'em an adult.

    Re: Facebook/Myspace cause teenagers to drink and smoke

    Teenagers were drinking and smoking well before the conception of the internet, let alone facebook.

    They will continue to do so.

    This is natural.

    Absolute ********. The drug agencies have become such a joke with all their fear-mongering propaganda. Read this article courtesy of times. Sheds a little more light on it. Fact-Check: A Survey Links Facebook to Drug Use in Teens – TIME Healthland

    Fox News making outlandish statements!?! Fox News jumping to ridiculous decisions!?! I do not believe it.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Being a child of the 80's, I saw that commercial and kept trying to catch my dad smoking pot, but sadly, I never did. So I never had the chance to get stoned.
