    Then you haven't looked. You might start with the documentary Grass, which is biased but still an interesting and accurate look at the evolution of marijuana law in the U.S. I heartily recommend the Schaffer Library of Drug Policy, which has pretty much every major study of the issue. Maybe you can find the one that concluded that marijuana prohibition is the best policy.

    Sorry. People will not respect the law more by focusing on other crimes. Just as a "Ho gonna Ho" other criminals are going to commit crime.
    Don't be sorry. Educate yourself, or educate me about your plan where crime ceases to exist. Most "marijuana criminals" are only criminals because marijuana is illegal.

    Wouldn't you rather have our limit police forces chasing dangerous criminals, rather than potheads? If your position is correct, the criminals will be chased regardless, but by legalizing marijuana way we can leave otherwise peaceful people alone. How is that worse?

    No, I have looked. I think most of the stuff was written by pot heads making any excuse just like in this thread.

    All "marijuana criminals" are criminals because they have committed crime. Excusing breaking any law because a person does not agree with the law is just an excuse. Potheads support murderers, thieves, kidnappers and everything else in pursuit of their own criminal activity. Doesn't seem very "peaceful" to me.

    The site I linked contains government sponsored scientific studies going back all the way to 1894. If you'd looked you'd know that. That's ok, it's pretty boring reading. Just report after report saying marijuana is not a serious public health issue.

    All "marijuana criminals" are criminals because they have committed crime. Excusing breaking any law because a person does not agree with the law is just an excuse.

    The government supports drug cartel's profits by artificially inflating the price of drugs. The efforts to fight the behavior only makes things worse. Marijuana is a bit different from other drugs here, in that it can be produced nearly anywhere, and the profit margins are to as wide. That said, plenty of weed moves over our borders, enriching foreign drug producers.

    Let's try another way, if you're game:

    What was the original reason marijuana was made illegal in the U.S.? Was it justified?

    Pot is a plant. It shouldn't be legal or illegal. It's just a ****ing plant.
