    NO, it shouldn't be legalized.

    My right to raise my Family in a Society not inundated with stoners is just as legitimate as some stoners wish go scramble their brains.

    The distructive effects of drug use aren't isolated to just the user.

    Can you understand that ?

    Look I know addicts are VERY selfish individuals, and its nearly impossible for them to see any further than their immediate fix, but all the more reason not to placate to the losers of our society and poison the rest in the process

    YES, it should absolutely be legalized. You already raise your family in a society inundated with stoners AND drunks, and drunks are much worse. The only difference if it is legal we won't waste tax dollars persecuting people for possessing and smoking a plant that is much less dangerous than hundreds of already legal substances. To argue for keeping it illegal is truly ignorant, and quite frankly idiotic.

    Can you understand that?

    That is an odd point of view. Do you also argue for prohibition of alcohol?

    Legal or illegal, marijuana has been generally easy for people to obtain yet it is certainly not the case that everyone enjoys weed or that legalization opens the door to a "society innundated with stoners". Most people use it seldom, if ever.
    It will always be-and should be- a controlled substance for under age kids.

    The comical thing about marijuana studies is how hard the gov't has tried to fund studies that demonstrate serious health consequences among adults users. For decades they have come up empty handed.

    So we're getting rid of alcohol too then, yes? You should be on a crusade about that if you think that somehow the rest of the society is responsible for raising your child as well.

    A social worker probably would. But then again, you would have skewed data, as I have also, since you're only in contact with a certain sector of society. The study in the OP was actually inconclusive because of small data size.

    If someone has a medical concern, what harm does a Dr giving them a prescription do?

    Yes a social workers view will be very very skewed. They meet people who have much bigger problems than occasionally smoking pot.

    No, no I dont.

    I dont live in a homeless shelter or on Skid Row and where in the hell do you live if your surrounded by drunks ?

    The City I live in will send a stoner's ass to jail in a heartbeat.

    Marijuana is NOT legal here and never will be.

    Duh.

    I laugh every time I hear from pot smokers that marijuana use is completely harmless compared to alcohol. No one can possibly believe marijuana is the least bit harmless.

    I had a buddy in high school that was probably the brightest guy in our class, and he was extremely outgoing. He found pot, and within a year, he had no gleam in his eye. He became this blank, empty loner of a guy that I could hardly recognize.

    It eats your brain, folks. Legal or not, it destroys who you are.

    On a selfish note, it culls the herd for my kids, whom I'm confident find potheads to be as pathetic as I do.
    My goodness, you are such a tolerant individual. It's an honor to be in your cyber presence.
