    I think that's a bit of an extreme statement. I don't see his attitudes as president leading to America's destruction, though if you could provide some examples....

    Well now, there is the well known Global Warming ongoing and caused by a parasitic infestation of the 3rd planet from the sun. War and death brought to the world at large by a virulent Military offense/defense industry. Nuclear contamination now and into the forseeable future brought to you by the world's greatest engineers (by their own estimation). Economic near catastrophy brought to you by the World's greatest economists. And you think Ron Paul is nuts. Ear bobbin' time in the lpast household.

    They dont have to make it legal...they can and should decriminalize it and allow the states to choose whether or not they legalize its use, posession laws, sales, etc.

    I think Paul is nuts about heroin, but I agree with legalizing pot. Like repealing prohibition, the violence associated with the illegal transport and sale of it would be greatly reduced. Also, like Tessa said, it would be taxed:

    And we could stop spending money on law enforcement dedicated to policing it.

    In 1937 we got the BS for all this time and the wacko movie Reefer Madeness which I was shown in High School in the 60s and thought it was a comedy and didn't know anything about Pot at the time.

    I have since learned the facts, and it is why I think that lying about Pot has brought a lot of young people into addictions with really dangerous drugs because people think, they lied about Pot did they lie about Cocaine, and other drugs too.

    We have lied about sex too, and I think kids find out about the lies and all hell breaks loose,
    It's time to undo a law based on one dead robber barron's desire to protect his own interests. It's a shame so many have suffered from it.

    Drugs should not be made illegal by the federal government. States have the right to ban Heroin, but not the federal government. And Paul made a good point: people act like if drugs were legalized tomorrow, everyone would go out and start snorting cocaine. This simply isn't true. Most people don't do drugs because they understand how dangerous drugs are. And how exactly has the War on Drugs helped? It is still unbelievably easy to get drugs, thousands of people still ruin themselves, but instead of it being regulated and tracked, gangsters get rich and buy guns and ammunition to control lower class neighborhoods.
    Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    Well like before, when all these drugs were legal, America was totally destroyed....
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    America is a free country. So we are told. Banning alcohol, marijuana or stupidity won't make life better.

    Marijuana is one of the least harmful recreational drugs in existence. It makes no sense for it to be illegal.
