    Why would we need a model for what we'd like to implement in the U.S.? I support total legalization. What kind of model would I need to provide for that? Again. You fool nobody here. Your questions were answered and you seem to still not get it. I don't care about the Netherlands model for weed. I support complete legalization. I don't care about Canada's model for weed. I support total legalization. Why would I need to provide a model when the only model I support does not yet exist? Or is your argument that because nobody has totally legalized weed then it's because of the dangers in total legalization of marijuana?

If your 40, you smoke weed, and your sitting on a beanbag chair right now, YOU FAILED!

    Lol, i just felt like saying that
    Nobody is saying that marijuana does not have drawbacks, it's just the pros heavily outweigh the cons.

    The mental disorder thing is a exaggeration, there are three main different types of Marijuana.

    Strains that are Sativa dominant, strains that are Indica dominant and strains that are Sativa-Indica mixture.

    If you are worried about a mental disorder and just want a relaxing marijuana the suggested strain would be indica which is what they use for most medical marijuana. It is this way because it has high CBD content, which is the substance in marijuana that gets you stoned

    It has much less hallucinating abilities than Sativa.

    Sativa is considered almost a caffeinated marijuana, it is pretty hallucinogenic and is much less stony high because it has higher THC content. THC is the substance in Marijuana that gets you high.

    A person with a mental disorder that smoked indica would most likely just sit on the couch, relax and not care about problems they were having prior to smoking.

    Of course, America is a very heavily populated country, we are so large that in fact many of our states are the size of most countries.

    Something that is socially accepted in California might not be socially accepted in Ohio or Florida.

    Millions have signed petitions in California to legalized Marijuana, and same with Oregon. Those people in these states should have the right to vote for legalizing the substance if they do so please.

    I live in Florida, if majority of Floridians disagree with Marijuana than ok, but I don't want the whole country deciding what is right for people in Florida do you catch my drift. That being said I have much more ability for legalization by convincing people who live near me to vote in my favor with petitions and such than how the federal government goes about doing things.

    The whole system of governance is set up so states can decide things like this, it was never meant to have the federal government control the whole god damn thing.

    MLB has a no-smoke policy regarding tobacco, so saying that smoking grass will be accepted at ballparks is a stretch.

    It would be more along the lines of cigarettes.

    Cigarette companies are waiting tell the government legalizes marijuana, they have set up cultivation methods in Mexico already.

    Don't you love how Governor Christ raised the growing 1 plant to a felony offense and criminalizing Salvia?

    It grows to good in this state for them to legalize it, people would be growing in there backyards if it ever got to that point.

    That reminds me of a rather odd conversation I had with my (WWII vet) grandpa a while back.

    "You know, I'd always thought nobody could touch california but florida has some of the best stuff you'll ever smoke."
