    Only if you explain why we also don't ban the following:
    Candy
    junk food
    Fast cars
    Oversized cars
    Expensive cars
    Infertile married couples
    Pet rocks

    Its called liberty.

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    Please list the reasons why a regulated legal distribution would result in a larger amount of marijuana being on our streets than we have currently with an unregulated insanely profitable black market distribution.

    Are you just going to pop in for a one line drive by, or are you going to substantiate this?

    Go ahead, this should be easy for ya, explain to us all how much more injurious to society marijuana is in comparison to junk food. spell it out for us.

    Although my initial impulse is to let you hang yourself, I'll give you a heads up here, The effects of marijuana prohibition on society are a distinct entity independent of the effects of marijuana the drug.

    Are they now? The effects of tabacco on our society and the individuals who use them are massive, enduring, and profounding insidious. As a society we are trying very hard to limit the effects of them by heavily taxing them and carrying on a 20 year campaign to encourage our children to not smoke, not to mention outright bans on where you can smoke the damn things. Just what sense does it make to encourage the use of yet another drug with similar or even worse effects on the human body?

    Marijuana Smokers Face Rapid Lung Destruction -- As Much As 20 Years Ahead Of Tobacco Smokers
    ScienceDaily (Jan. 27, 2008) A new study finds that the development of bullous lung disease occurs in marijuana smokers approximately 20 years earlier than tobacco smokers.


    A condition often caused by exposure to toxic chemicals or long-term exposure to tobacco smoke, bullous lung disease (also known as bullae) is a condition where air trapped in the lungs causes obstruction to breathing and eventual destruction of the lungs.

    At present, about 10% of young adults and 1% of the adult population smoke marijuana regularly. Researchers find that the mean age of marijuana-smoking patients with lung problems was 41, as opposed to the average age of 65 years for tobacco-smoking patients.

    The study "Bullous Lung Disease due to Marijuana" also finds that the bullous lung disease can easily go undetected as patients suffering from the disease may show normal chest X-rays and lung functions. High-resolution CT scans revealed severe asymmetrical, variably sized bullae in the patients studied. However, chest X-rays and lung functions were normal in half of them......

    No thanks. I'm a teacher. Even dopers realize you need higher standards for those around their little ones.

    A lot of things are harmful for our bodies, such as eating at McDonalds. Should that be outlawed as well? Guess what? We all should have a right to choose what we want to do with our bodies. Rather than blaming a plant for the problems of the world, perhaps you should place the blame on people who abuse these things.

    You are making yet another reckless statement. The problem with our society is not Marijuana itself, but the criminal gangs who operate the underground market associated with Marijuana and other illegal substances.
