    Do you BELIEVE that MARIJUANA should be LEGALIZED in the U.S.? If so WHY? ;)

    Yes. Because it will cause the Smoke-Nazis all manner of grief. Heh! There was a poll in our local newspaper today...same question...and out of 1,100 respondents to the on-line poll they ran, the results were split pretty much right down the middle...something like 52% against it...48% for it. The War on Some Drugs is stupid. We have a revolving door justice system for hardened criminals, due in part I think, because non-violent offenders are doing time for petty possession. The only thing the War on Some Drugs has helped is the police crazies who like busting down doors...and I thought I read one statistic that 10% or the no-knock raids in New York were at the wrong address. But...when the gov't focks up, they get more money, to fock up even worse. And we let the bastards get away with it.

    Nope. I can't stand being around people who are stoned (or drunk). I like hanging out with people who are naturally sharp, smart, and on top of their game. If you ask me, the last thing the world needs is more dull-witted people!

    I appreciate your honesty. My sister still smokes pot and she is in her 60s. While I think it is actually less harmful than alcohol I also believe that long term use (or maybe I should say "overuse") does seem to contribute to paranoia. I cannot prove it scientifically.
    Medical marijuana is fine. Actually if we could get all the smokers to switch to pot, maybe the smoking areas outside of buildings would smell better! :dnce_pig:

    I BELIEVE the term is "Anything in Moderation", though it should be up to the INDIVIDUAL to decide for themselves what that means! I'm not saying COCAINE, HEROIN, L.S.D., or METHAMPHETAMINE, this is just POT, and it's not in any way half as harmful as any of those, or even MOST prescription medications! If I decide to SMOKE a JOINT in my off time, why should that in any way affect my job or ability to work if they decide to give me a URINE TEST? It SHOULDN'T, but I guarantee the way things are right now that I'd get FIRED! How many people DRINK on a DAILY basis starting as soon as they get off, or home from work? The DRINKER'S jobs are SECURE, but not the STONER'S!

    I'm kind of Surprised that this Post hasn't garnered more attention, especially when you consider all that's currently going on in America!

    I'm all for legalizing pot, but I abhor recreational use. Waste of good medicine.
  14. Yes... it's readily available anyway. Much of the weed we get now is laced and legal pot would be pure. It would help the economy and also cut down on a bit of crime. I'm real curious to see what happens in Colorado.

    ...thing is, they grow more....

    When it's legal and people can grow whatever they want, it's all good. But right now, it's so hard to come by and such a risk, it's just a waste to set it on fire. That stuff cures cancer when it's in oil form, y'know. ;)

    If I were to want it, I can get it basically 24/7 365, no problem with minimum risk & little to no hassle! I whole heartedly disagree with you, people should be able to choose how & when they use it, also you say it's a waste of good medicine, even though it's been proven as a preventative measure to ward off cancer in the first place! An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure any day! ;)

    I can't think of one logical reason why it should be illegal when alcohol is legal. Both substances should be legal, but if one was to be legal and the other illegal, it really should be the other way around.

    Also, saying "I don't like to be around people who use it" it a terrible reason to think it should be illegal. I don't like to be around people who are always playing around on their stupid cell phones, that doesn't mean cell phones should be illegal... although I'm sure cell phone use (texting and driving) has killed more people than marijuana use.
