    I'm liking this, but I doubt it will pass. I think first we should go for a rescheduling of marijuana to schedule 2 or 3. It's just not going to become fully legal and unscheduled overnight.

    Is that his fault or the drug's fault? Probably the former. When you abuse marijuana, as in make it a daily habit, it'll affect your life negatively, just like alcohol, however the latter is going to screw it up a lot more.

    Here's one of the strangest pairings of late in Congress: Reps. Ron Paul and Barney Frank are teaming up today on legislation to legalize marijuana.


    The legislation by Paul, a libertarian-thinking Texas Republican running for president, and Frank, a liberal Massachusetts Democrat, is being touted by the advocacy group Marijuana Policy Project (MPP).

    No thanks, but it does show you that working with the "Republocrats" might be a good thing. *cough cough* *wink wink* nudge nudge* *kick shin*

    I'm all about legalizing 'because I want to get high because I can' pot use, but by default I'm going to oppose whatever action is being taken here due to the people involved; their motives can not be trusted.

    Cannabis should have never been banned.

    This is a good step foward.

    Has he been in jail? Because I know jail won't help him.

    Your son can get it whether it is legal or illegal.

    Please get him in a rehab program if you can.

    Counseling...therapy...but not a rehab program. No detox required for marijuana use and he wont stop without being able to understand why he continues to use if it is screwing up his life. Marijuana cessation programs arent all that effective in my experience.

    To American-and no, dont feel compelled to answer...its your family business...
    ...but...Out of curiosity...how is 'marijuana' screwing up the boys life? is it the marijuana or is it his other life choices? Just curious...not prying. I walked through a glass door when I was a kid stoned out of my mind. I was a regular user but I would be dishonest if I said it was the drugs that were doing it to me.

    Is legalizing guns really that important. They're obviously not hard to get!

    It makes no sense to spend billions of dollars jailing people for using a substance less harmful than alcohol or tobacco.
