    Imagine if Obama legalizes pot tomorrow. Most of FOX News would rape him on a 24/7 basis.

    Obama's just trying to grab the few Conservative votes he might have a shot at taking, it's pathetic.

    I love it when people think legalizing pot is going to save the economy and/or our country. I don't care if you want to smoke it, and I think we are a bit harsh with it at times but its not like legalizing pot and gay marriage are going to get this country back on track.

    depressing if true.

    pot should be legal; the federal government should waste zero dollars fighting it. easy way to cut the budget and increase revenue, also.

    I'm not sure that anyone has been arguing that, but people should be able to choose what they put in their own bodies.

    This country doesn't give two ****s about education, so keeping marijuana illegal because of its supposed anti-economical advancement effects is a pile of ****.

    Re: Obama Renews the War on Marijuana

    My big problem with this is that this is going back to Bush admin policy. Bush admin policy was to go after medical marijuana warehouses and shops in states with legalized med marijuana laws. Obama's administration then reversed that, and now it's back. And a month after that global commission report too... really this irks me a lot.

    I don't know. People of every political stripe are bitching about everything as though life is so awful and terrible in America. I'm all for legalizing gay marriage, and don't have a huge issue with marijuana legalization either. but to think that it's going to curb the bitching at all if those things happen is dumb IMO. People will just find some other "right" they perceive as being trampled on and bitch about what a backwards third world country culture we have.
